We booked this Hotel at the last minute. On arrival we were really impressed with the interior and the magnificent view of the Ionian Sea .. the water so clear and blue. Our receptionist was one of the most helpful we have encountered speaking very good English. We found all the staff to be most helpful and friendly. We had booked the wellness package and made full use of the Lympha Spa facilities - on most occasions having it all to ourselves. The facilities had been recently refurbished and were excellent, The steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and all other facilities were spotlessly clean. The Hotel itself has a beachfront location with sun loungers, umbrellas and towels provided for Hotel guests. The pool and surrounding area was also spotless. The only downside of arriving in May - poolside bar and restaurant do not open until June.. so would recommend a car

Dear WillandDi, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Grand Hotel Costa Brada. I’m so glad to hear that our staff were able to make your experience with us a memorable one and that you enjoyed all of the amenities we offer, such as the private beach, the swimming pool and the SPA. The hotel is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Salento coast. The crystal clear sea and white sand are one of our strenghts. Our terrace offers a breathtaking view, especially at sunset. The spa provide moments of pure relaxation to the body and mind with the skilled hands of our girls and the finest technologies. Cleanliness and attention to detail are very important to us so everything is spotless an well-groomed. About the restaurants, the Panoramic restaurant is open at lunch and dinner and offers a very wide choice even for the most demanding palates. We hope to see you soon again. Kind regards, A big hug from Salento General Manager Anio Iannuzziello

We had an ocean view suite, which was money well spent. Beautiful hotel, perfect location, couldn't be happier. Great service, everyone was truly interested in seeing us enjoy ourselves. Anyone who didn't enjoy it has a problem with their attitude, the hotel is great. Good dinner in the restaurant, good massages in the spa, great aperitivo in the afternoon...loved it.

We were very excited to visit this hotel with the great reviews but come arrival we were extremely disappointed. The room was outdated and the bathroom was NOT clean with rust and mold in the shower. The pillows felt like they were stuffed with paper. The only place for dinner was the large dining hall with no atmosphere and the food was not great. There is a large terrace that would have been a perfect place to eat but that was not possible. The view of the water was beautiful but once we got to the beach it was not very clean with cigarettes on the sand. The location is great but overall this hotel felt like it was trapped in the 80’s and needed a major revamp. It also feels like they just pack people in, especially on the beach and it did not feel comfortable or relaxing. This is not a 4 star hotel experience.

Dear Tracy, Thank you very much for staying in our hotel in Gallipoli and sharing your opinion with us. We always learn a great deal from our guests’ experience and constructive criticism; the objective of our work is to make our guests’ holiday unique and memorable, so it is essential to us to know your positive, but most of all, your negative feedback, so that we can understand in which way we can improve our service. We are sorry that You didn’t love the style of the hotel; anyway, we take the liberty to disagree with your idea about the outdated room and the “hotel being trapped in the 80s”. As confirmed with your reservation, you had a Comfort Room, characterised by essential decoration in a Mediterranean style, clear and relaxing colours, as well as a nice lateral view on the sea; three milestones for those who want to get into contact with the magic of Salento; moreover, a part of the hotel was renewed four years ago, while a new, modern spa and a renewed swimming pool were inaugurated respectively last year and last June. This is just to prove You that we take care of our “home”, and nothing is left to chance. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience about the shower; we always put a lot of work into the maintenance and the cleaning of our rooms as well as the common areas of the hotel; we are sure that if you had prevented us about this problem during your stay, we would have intervened immediately to find a solution for You. As for the main restaurant, it is called “panoramic restaurant” because of its glass windows that give a stunning view on our beautiful Ionian Sea; the menu proposed to our guests varies every day and presents high quality dishes with local foods and fish reflecting the tradition of the region. These two elements have always been appreciated from our long-time guests as well as our new ones. Anyway, we really appreciate your advice about the terrace, which is already a highlight of our hotel with its aperitifs at the sunset, and we will do our best, in the next future, to maximize its potential and offer amazing dinners “with a view”. We absolutely agree with you about the beauty of the beach that we always try to keep clean and in order for our guests; indeed, as you might have noticed, there are only four rows of sunshades, each corresponding to a room number, with 4sqm of place between one sunshade and the other and 4sqm of place between one row and the other. We thank you again for your criticism that will be surely precious for us to improve our work, and we sincerely hope that you can come back next here so that you can see the results of our efforts! General Manager Anio Iannuzziello

The hotel is very clean and nice but the most amazing thing is its location. I've never seen another hotel like this in Salento. Also compared to neighboring hotels, its beach is a notch above. If you want to wake up on a dreamlike beach, go to Costa Brada.

Dear Gigalbu, Thank you so much for coming to visit us and for the nice words you used to speak about our Hotel and the outstanding sea of Gallipoli. The beautiful beach of fine sand, just a few steps from the hotel lobby is one of our strengths and we are so happy you enjoyed it. We hope to see you soon again. Kind regards, a big hug from salento General Manager Anio Iannuzziello
