“A very cool hotel”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

We have been travelling around Puglia staying in various types of accomodation and had booked this hotel for 4 nights whilst we explored Otranto, Lecce and Galipoli.

We were absolutely delighted with this very chic and modern hotel close to the old town of Otranto. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast served each morning was a perfect start to the day.

Our room was a good size with a large and ultra modern bathroom and kept very clean. The air conditioning was so good that we were almost cold in contrast with the very warm climate outside.

Lying on the comfortable beds on the roof reading in the early evening sunset was a lovely way to spend this part of the day.

My friend and I stayed at the Hotel Valle Dell'Idro for a long beach weekend in Otranto. We absolutely loved it! The hotel has been decorated in a cute beachy style - it made me feel like if I had a beach hotel, this is exactly how I would love to decorate it. All the spaces are conducive to relaxation and appreciating beautiful setting in Otranto. The roof deck and terrace for having breakfast are just lovely. All the staff were courteous and helpful. I was so happy with the experience and to have found such a lovely gem in Otranto - I will definitely try to find an excuse to return to this charming hotel!!

We stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary and chose it after reading all the good reviews on trip advisor. We are so glad we did! The room was spotless and cleaned every day. The breakfast is lovely - fresh fruit in abundance and croissants, bread, cereals, cakes and all good things that make up a perfect Italian breakfast! You can eat it inside or on the terrace. The staff are very friendly and offer a prefect mixture of efficiency and professionalism without being too invasive. We would really recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a chilled out holiday. Our special thanks to Alessandra in reception who made sure our wedding anniversary was perfect - gentilissima!!

After many weeks of travelling and staying it small historic buildings, this spacious, well designed modern hotel was a welcome change. Being from tropical Queensland, it reminded us of the style we have come to expect in Noosa or Port Douglas. Its location is quiet, with a car park provided nearby, and only a short walk to the old city and the beach. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and provided us with restaurant recommendations in the evenings. Wi fi was available in the dining/reception area. If the weather had been warmer we would have enjoyed spending time in the spa, and on the spacious roof terrace.

This hotel looks and feels luxurious. The accommodation feels more like your own space in someone's luxury villa rather than a hotel room. Beyond the quality of the property, the quality of the hospitality is exceptional. The staff without exception, are eager to please, are happy and friendly. The continental buffet breakfast was fantastic. Presentation throughout this hotel is beautiful. There are so many little things that are so well done. Love this hotel.
