Its everything you could hope for in a seafront hotel. The pool was under-used as the beach was so nice. It is beautifully sandy and the sea is very shallow for quite a long way out. There are a few rocks but you can soon find the best way in and out. The public beach next door can get extremely crowded especially at weekends and its quite noisy with the chatter of people so don't go there if you are looking for peace and quiet!
Another reviewer stated that Torre Canne is better looked at from a distance, we did walk into the town one afternoon and there was little to recommend it. I understand that there are plans to redevelop some of the seafront around the tower which will make it quite a feature.
You need to hire a car as there are some lovely places to visit within half an hour.
The village of Alberobello with the small white trulli houses is a must see. There is also the huge cave complex of Grotte de Castellana. We spent 1 hour and 45 minutes on the 3km tour and the stalactites and stalagmites were quite incredible. There are also plenty of other towns like Cisternino, Ostuni and Martina Franca which are interesting to stroll around. A few miles up the coast from Torre Canne there are the roman ruins of Egnathia and an interesting museum to look around. There are also plenty of little rocky bays in which to go for a swim in this area.
Its a great place for a holiday, the staff are friendly and efficent.
During my stay I noticed that the guests were mostly older Italians though the hotel seems to able to cope well with a variety of nationalities.
The food was good and if you want to go out in the evening you can change over and have a lunch.
My tip would be pay more and have a room with a sea view, the sunrise in the morning and the lovely view will make for a wonderful holiday.
