We used our timeshare to spend 4 nights here during our 10 day road trip through Puglia. Beautiful location, quiet grounds. We were given room 131, center of the courtyard and not far from the bar, which was convenient. Rooms were clean and basic but comfortable. We had dinner one night at the restaurant - a lot of food (4 course) for €35 pp. The food was very good and service was great. Continual breakfast is also available, with lots of choices (€7), We did not make it to the resort beach but all the beaches in the area were really clean with soft sand and calm waters. It was end of season so we went to Lido Bora Bora which still had an open restaurant.

Staff was very accommodating and no issues with our poor English to Italian.

Overall a lovely stay and a nice break not to have to pack and move every day. You’ll need a car to explore, but we found it a great location to go to Gallipoli, Otranto, and Lecce.

We have been in the hotel Antica Masseria Rottacapozza last week of July 2022 and we really enjoyed this place.
Reception, hotel and lido staff (all young motivated people) were very friendly and professional.
The lido near the hotel is really calm, relaxing, clean and well organized. The sandy beach is clean and the sea is super clear, clean, beautiful and granted blue flag.
The food in general is typical, good and varied. Some evenings the Chef is cooking main courses in front of the guests.
The swimming pool is large and nice.
In evenings there are some animations.
In addition, we chose the luxury suite which is independant but close to the hotel and swimming pool.
This little suite is typical of the region and well decorated. A lovely terrace is surrounded by exotic plants and trees. We felt like in a cocoon.
This comfortable accommodation added to the exotic place was amplified by a friendly and family atmosphere.
We highly recommend this hotel / Masseria which is close to all famous places of Puglia.

Marco, Emma and Caroline of France.

This is the cutest hotel in the middle of farms in rural southern Italy. The distance to the beach is perfect, only a mile or two down the road. The rooms are small but quaint. The only suggestion I do have is to have additional seating arranged in the room for colder spring nights. The room was unique with the old walls peering through the new stucco. They clean them twice a week and are happy to provide additional towels and blankets upon request. The grounds are well kept, with a pool and plenty of seating around the gardens. If you exercise every day like we’re accustomed to doing, there isn’t a lot of walking space unless you’re willing to risk your like on narrow Italian rural roads, which I definitely would not recommend. The staff is so very pleasant though only one speaks English. They all attempt to understand as best as possible and will do whatever in their power to be sure their guests are happy and comfortable. Ask for Mery if you need assistance with English/Italian translation. She was always ready willing and able. We did not eat dinner in the dining area, mainly because I’m vegetarian and their dishes did not accommodate my eating habits, though breakfast was always fresh and plenty, with Lisa and SiMona were always ready to assist, Clem up and Bri g cappuccino’s with a simple nod. Love the staff! I also have to mention Pierluigi who brought in our luggage and checked to be sure we had everything we needed. They do have a clean pool, and although it was clean and looked inviting, it was a bit too cold to swim.

A truely beautiful place set in stunning grounds. So calm and relaxing and a real escape. It’s beautifully styled in a rustic relaxed manner and so picturesque. The pool is the prettiest I have ever seen and the beach offers beautiful sand, comfy chairs and a great beach bar.

The attention to detail is amazing and everything is so beautiful. The evening menu is amazing value and offers plenty of variety. The portions are generous so you will not go hungry and the food tastes fantastic.

All the staff are friendly and attentive and if you really want to spoil yourself I recommend the spa. It’s a small hotel with a big heart and gives you the feeling that everyone here really does care.

The only downside was that we only booked one week!

A taste of traditional old style values and standards. Something that I have missed. My wife and I had 1 week here and we’re treated like family. The hotel is a converted farm and retains its rustic charm whilst being clean and comfortable with all the facilities you would expect. The food is like being at an Italian wedding every night with several well portioned delicious courses. All the food overseen by head chef Johnny. The hotel setting is sublime. A beautiful pool and gardens. Outdoor bar. There is a private beach that you have access to about a mile away with a lovely bar attached and clean toilets and shower. Just a prefect getaway. You can visit lots of beautiful towns within a short drive. You definitely need ti hire a care. Highly recommend and would stay again.

We stayed here for a week as a timeshare exchange week commencing 29 April 2017. The location is lovely and in a very peaceful countrysie setting surrounded by olive trees and wildflowers. Great views down to the sea and the village of Torre Mozza, which has a great beach and is walkable in about 15 minutes. It was very quiet as the season apparantly doesn't really get started until end May and there were only half a dozen rooms or so occupied.This had both advantages and disadvantages.

We were fortunate to have almost perfect weather of around 22/23 degrees and we had the pool to ourselves on the several afternoons we sat out.but the hotel, was rather lacking in atmosphere and it meant that events (there were two conferences during our stay) took preference in the restaurant in the evening. Nevertheless, the food was very good and I would recommend eating here, although the breakfast buffet was more limited than in high season because there were so few of us - it was great though that individually made lattes were available on demand.

The restaurant manager, Vito, who was one of the only members of staff to speak reasonable english and very friendly and helpful, really looked after us and assisted with information on the area, available external restaurants, etc., (the majority had not yet opened) and helped to make a difference to our overall experience.

The room we stayed in, at the top of the hotel by the car park, was OK and rather on the small side, as was the bathroom and I wouldn't class it as four star. It had a fridge but no tea or coffeemaking facilities. We also received only a cleaning service and towel change every other day. When I queried this I was told that this was the regular service for tmeshare customers, although we weren't told this on check in, even though we had to pay an extra 50 euro cleaning fee.It wasn't a problem as such but it would have been nice to know from the outset.

There is a spa on site but to be honest this was very poor and I couldn't recommend it. It was not very clean and the service is severely lacking. It didn't help with the language barrier but even so they kept me waiting for both treatments I booked; the second time for over 40 minutes and they short changed me both times in terms of time. The treatments themselves were also not very good.

The other issue for me in terms of the hotel was that we had to pay a 35 euro per person resort fee, apparantly for use of the pool, wifi and beach chairs and shuttle. However, neither of the latter were available at the time of year we stayed so this seemed rather unwarranted.

We were impressed with the area of Puglia but you do need a car to get around. It has some beautiful old towns to visit such as Ostuni, Lecce and Abererbello, as well as a gorgeous coastline with laid back small beachside towns and vast golden sand beaches. In season the choice of restaurants would be very good and we found those that were open to offer good quality food and friendly service. It was also good value for money overall compared to other parts of Italy.

We had a lovely week's holiday and I have given the hotel a four star rating because of the location and setting and the fact that we received such good service from Vito. However, if my rating was based on the rooms and hotel facilities I would give it a 3 star rating.

We recently did a timeshare exchange via Interval International to this location. We spent two weeks at the resort and this was our best holiday in Italy so far (we had previously visited Tuscany and Rome).

The rooms combine old farmhouse charm with the amenities required for a comfortable stay. Temperatures climbed to 34-36 Celsius during our stay, the A/C in the rooms is very efficient and the rooms set up makes most of the available shade. The location of the resort is wonderful, on a hill surrounded by olive groves, and overlooking the Torre Mozza tower and beach. We made good use of a beautiful swimming pool cut straight into the local limestone rocks. The resort is a few miles away from the seaside, with a free shuttle taking residents back and forth in minutes to the Bora Bora beach in Torre San Giovanni. The resort has access to an area of this wonderful beach, with beautiful turquoise shallow and warm water, and white sand.

Our reservation included half board (breakfast and 4 course Italian style dinners). The restaurant setting is very romantic. The food was exquisite, and Chef Johnny Longo showcased his skills with 'live-cooking' of risotto, paella and local pasta in front of the guests several times a week. The restaurant personnel, working under the watchful eye of Patrizio, were very attentive and efficient. Our waiter Angelo took really good care of us during our stay. Patrizio thought us how to eat frizzelle and had excellent wine recommendations for us.

The resort has live entertainment on during and after dinner, providing a variety of shows (piano, saxophone, live music, and wonderful Pizzica music and dancing - traditional folk music of Salento). The entertainment team lead by Analisa also organizes activities for children and takes care of the beach set up for all residents. The young ladies in the team are all energetic, friendly and very patient with visitors that do not speak much Italian. They are also excellent at dancing Pizzica and encouraging the guests to try it out!

We had the opportunity to go on a dinner cruise with a sail boat, dinner and pirate show included! This was a wonderful experience, the food was great, the entertainment was very nice and the old sail boat was beautiful (supposedly this was a real pirate ship at some time in its long life!).

The resort is also organizing tours in the area. We took a tour to Spechia, a small town not far from the resort, to see an old underground olive press (frantoio ipogeo). This was very interesting and the town architecture is charming as well. Alessandro, the resort guide, did an excellent job of organizing the tour and connecting us with a very knowledgeable guide.

The location of this resort allows for easy access to most of Salento. Although this area is far away from the touristy crowds, there are plenty of things to do if you would like to see old towns with beautiful architecture, cathedrals and churches and historic sites. The towns of Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto, Santa Maria Di Leuca are all easily accessible by car, and you can take a very scenic drive to visit the numerous sandy or rocky beaches and observation tours ('torres') along the Ionic and Adriatic seas nearby.

The resort personnel was wonderful - from the security guard that helped us out as we arrived very late and with our luggage delayed (thank you for passing on the message to reception and ensuring we had an emergency travel kit ready for us in the morning!!!), to the reception Director that was always checking in to make sure we had everything we needed, and everyone else we came in contact with - friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. We had a wonderful and relaxing holiday and we plan to come back to this location in future!

Like other reviewers we booked this with Interval as well. So ... it's not going to tickle everyone's palate (especially owners of Marriott expecting Marriott quality) but we loved it. Rooms are quite small, quite basic but comfortable - don't expect luxury. It's miles from anywhere so if you plan to hit the sights, hire a car. There is a lovely private beach and you are shuttled to it. But ... it's just special. The area, out of season, is amazing - quiet with some beautiful public beaches (like Torre Moza). The hotel staff are very friendly, and the food is fantastic. We went there in mid-May so it was really out of season so no entertainment, but this suited us perfectly. If you want somewhere truly out of the way, and if you have never visited this part of Italy - you should. Just be warned that July & August is probably worth avoiding when apparently it gets very, very busy!

We did an Interval International Exchange to this property and despite my following comments. which I hope are constructive, we had a lovely time and would recommend a trip to this unspoilt area. It is in the very south of Puglia an area full of olive groves. The main roads are fairly good but the country roads are 'interesting'. The property is on elevated ground, and a little way from the sea but the shuttle bus is very efficient and there are very good views. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough to ensure your stay is pleasant. The all-inclusive food is good, but more than most people can eat, and after a week is somewhat monotonous. Wine compared to the local supermarket is expensive in the restaurant and we felt it would be nice if they provided some local wine within the all inclusive. Coffee was served at breakfast and after lunch by request but in the evening you had to go to the pool bar and buy it. The pool was beautiful but cold, even in September after a very hot summer. The private beach is very nice and has a bar restaurant. Beach loungers and umbrellas are included and set up by Nino who is excellent. The rooms are very nice although wifi does not work in the one we had. It seems to be available near the reception area. I cannot leave a review without mentioning the waiters, Pasquale, Dotsi and Antonio Due were great fun and really good at their jobs. The restaurant manager did everything he could to make everyone happy and Jonny is a brilliant cook.

We stayed at this hotel, using a timeshare swap. Given the absence of any in-room kitchen facilities, and the relative remoteness of the hotel, we were essentially in ‘room only’ accommodation with few alternatives for refreshment. Not exactly what we expected on the basis of information provided during our planning. So the quality of the restaurant was important. Breakfast was good, little variation but a good variety of (cold) food. Dinner however was quite variable, although at a reasonable price for the fixed four course menu.
The hotel, developed from 16th century hillside farm buildings was sympathetically laid out and furnished comfortably, but featuring many steps - which provided good exercise! The Spa, built in an small cave, looked pretty, but was inadequate. Access into and out of the pool necessitated crawling under a one metre rough rock ledge; the sauna was cosy, seating two abreast with as much room as two airline economy seats, and the ‘Emotional’ shower was nothing of the sort. Worst though was the luke warm Turkish Bath with standing room only.
The staff were, without exception, very approachable, reactive, and friendly and provided excellent service.

Definitely rent a car , for it is a very quiet location (read:remote). Options are open ;-) Go visit Lecce , rent a scooter for a day and visit an authentique olive oil factory where you can taste all the different oils,home made focaccias and wine , rent a boat and ask a visit to the caves alongside the coast...etc
