This isn't a chi-chi five star hotel for couples or senior business travellers (there are those in Milano Marittima, like the Mare Pineta Resort). However, the Hotel Franca was a VERY welcoming, family-friendly, clean, comfortable and relaxing place to take our daughter and granddaughter.
The bathroom had a strong shower and a bidet. Toiletries were very basic so we bought our own. There's a pool, tennis court and table tennis. Prices at the bar and in the restaurant were very reasonable.
The location of the hotel was also good for us with a very short walk to the beach and its Adriatic rolling waves, and a slighter longer walk into the town with some upmarket shops, bars and restaurants. Great clothes shops - many purchases were made (and our home town of London!).
The other thing we appreciated in the very nice, well-heeled town and in the hotel: we were apparently the only British people for miles around. There were one or two German / Austrian families in August 2016, but the whole place has a very genuine Italian feel to it. If you crave noise, British beer and chips but without the bad weather of Margate or Blackpool, stay in the hideous Rimini just down the coast!More
