Litoranea 379, Fasano, Apulia, Italy
"Of this wonderful hotel, where no animal is allowed (finally a place to rest!!) nor kids under 14. A historical site full of charme and atmosphere, so well taken care of, surrounded by olive trees, fig plants, you walk thru the tuff stones and the lovely flowers, a full immersion into perfumes, colours, light. The bedrooms are very big and comfortable, giant beds, so comfy!! You wake up with the birds’ singing. In the bathroom, very well organised, you find all you need and flowers on your arrival. Fresh fruit from the house trees, fantastic figs, grapes, peaches...a HUGE swimming pool (55 mt) with salted water will cool you down in the hot summer days, with natural rocks and little falls, it’s a pleasure for the eyes and all senses. You can rest under millennial olive trees’ shadow, with the breeze coming from the sea. There are 2 tennis fields, a spa with thalassic-therapy very professional, with a big hot water pool and many rooms for all sort of treatments. The breakfast is amazing, best breakfast ever: fresh local fruits, homemade cakes, fabulous homemade breads , juices, diet jam, and whatever you have the first day, tea or latte or coffee, they remember your choice and let you find it every morning on your table, with no need to ask further. The girls of breakfast are all very nice and kind, you feel like the Sleeping Beauty with her fairies, they really spoil you with all what you want and are so sweet! I’ll remember Angela for her spontaneous sympathy and kindness. At the restaurant San Domenico I had some bad nights, with confusion and not so good food, but usually is good, not fabulous, and the Sunday night with the Pugliese buffet is fantastic, not to be miss. In the end, a memorable vacation that will be repeated for sure. "
"We spent five nights here recently and had a wonderful time. We're not kids, travel a lot, and stay in a lot of very nice hotels. This is among the nicest we've ever stayed in. It's set among olive groves and the property is beautiful. The staff was friendly and excellent, the pools really nice, the spa (which we didn't use, was lovely), even the gym, which I did use, was great. We stayed in a really nicely appointed junior suite which had a marvelous view over the olive groves to the sea. The room itself was very spacious, very nicely furnished, and had two full bathrooms (how often to you see that). We didn't see other rooms but the building itself is very interesting and, considering how well this place is run, I'd assume they were up to the same standards. Breakfast was a wonderful buffet as well as cooking you anything you' like This is truly a luxury destination, not cheap, but worth the cost"
"My husband and I stayed here 3 days and the accommodations were comfortable and clean and quite large. The breakfast buffet was amazing with too many delicious choices and the on site restaurant had a creative selection of local dishes and everything we sampled was top notch. The property boasts thousands of olive trees as well a pomegranate trees and palms and beautiful gardens. There are 2 pools and a fully equipped spa. The staff was friendly and professional and we have many wonderful memories of our stay at Masseria San Domenico, Fasano Italy"
