This is located a few kilometers north of Bari. We had a car and it made it easily accessible. It is located just off the autostrada and has good signage. There was plenty of free offstreet parking. The location, being somewhat removed from the city, felt very safe and secure. It was a quick overnight stay. The staff was friendly,...

I am Prasanna staying in Riva del Sole for last one year. With my experience the stay and support from hotel peoples and facilities are very nice and good. It is very close to airport and other supermarket. Sea beach and swimming pool and other places are very nice. In my experience it is worth for money and enjoyment.

The Al Mare restaurant offers good but without originality cuisine, the room we were in was clean but very small, two lights out of four non functioning, the door to the balcony...

I normally travel all over Italy, this hotel is just an average Italian hotel, nothing special, quite dated but clean and staff are helpful. The hotel has a free shuttle connecting the airport with hotel on request, I emailed in advance but was told I only had to call when I landed from my flight. Breakfast was nice, excellent Latte...

Nice enough hotel but I booked it because there was a pool - paying more than I would normally have paid & the pool wasn’t open for the season yet. The web site should state the opening dates. I also couldn’t get on the wifi which was also something I specifically searched for. Otherwise it was a nice hotel with...
