My wife and I (empty nesters) did a weekend getaway to Fasano with another couple who had four children. We all thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. There are many positives. The grounds are very large and host a bunch of play equipment for kids including a trampoline. The pool is large (not heated) and there is a kids' pool as well. The Sierra Silvana has a sister hotel (Hotel del Levante) which is near a beautiful beach and you can get free passes and catch a shuttle at limited times to hang out there as well (we drove and were able to park there). The Sierra Silvana is elevated and cool and very close to the Zoo Safari attraction. It is immaculately clean; the staff is friendly and helpful. There was a diverse mix of younger and older couples and families staying here. The rooms were a good size and the towels were soft. Parking and wireless internet were free. Some cons: The restaurant on the property was very good but it has limited hours (only 7:30 to 9:00 pm for dinner) and you will need to drive to go anywhere else. There is a large parking area but it was still pretty tight with events held on the weekend - an attendant helped us get parked. There is no gym. The bed is very firm (we've yet to find an Italian hotel with anything different). The free breakfast was just OK by Italian standards; you had to explicitly request fresh coffee if you didn't want the one from the machine, the fruit juice from the machine was watery, the food was nothing particularly special. Overall I recommend this location if your needs coincide with what it has to offer.
