Just a bit old fashioned structure just in front of a nice large beach, clean and pleasant rooms with A/C and wi-fi; outside pool with lifeguard, Professional service, nice attitude. Internal parking. Too bad for the trains passage just aside the hotel: quite noisy.

Room tip: On the side facing the sea

This hotel is just outside Ortona and from the street it looks like it could use a little sprucing up. This could be in part because the surrounding area isn't the nicest.

Inside, the hotel is clean and fairly modern looking. Our superior sea facing rooms were modern and clean with a large bathroom and nice linens. There was a very strange hairdryer that resembled a vacuum hose. OK to use one day, but if staying longer, take your own. We had a very large balcony which provided a nice view of the sea, beach and pool. The only problem was that we were directly over the A/C units and duct work.

The weather wasn't the greatest, but the staff did make sure their lifeguard was available when we used the pool. The outside bartender wasn't very friendly. We found all the rest of the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Dinner was very nice at the hotel. We had quite a language barrier, but managed pretty well. Our waiter was very nice.There was a small mix-up with 2 of 4 dinners which resulted in a minor delay, but they more than made up for this and we were quite impressed.

Breakfast was good and the dining room looks out to the sea which was nice. Plenty of free parking as well.

The main purpose of our trip to Italy was to go to the Moro River Canadian War Cemetery and this hotel is only a 10 minute drive away. The Cemetery is very easy to get to from here. If we were ever to go to this area again I wouldn't hesitate at all to stay here.

Room tip: Book the superior sea facing room-it's a lovely view. A train track is across the street, so street side rooms would hear train noise.

A grand old hotel with a beach kept pristine, the sea shallow up to the man made breakers. The service at the front desk was superlative and friendly, the room ok with a small tv screen and a large balcony. Comfortable bed and very quiet location, a few Kms away from the city of Ortona, needing a car or public transport. The breakfast provided was basic, we did not try the restaurant.
