Rosa Maria Resort Ostuni Puglia

Posted Jun 22, 2016 on Hotels
We spent 10 days at the resort in mid June - the weather was just right. We had been recommended to stay in Puglia because of the easy accessibility to other parts of the south and were delighted with the area. We did however find the Rosa Marina resort hard to find and it was confusing as there is also a Rosa Marina and we followed directions there by mistake. We booked a superior room and were not disappointed. It was spacious and clean. We also booked bed and breakfast and did find it difficult to find nearby restaurants (within 15 mins drive) as we found the location quite remote. The guests were 90% plus Italian however most of the staff spoke good English. The pools were great - very clean and well kept.

beautiful grounds and easy access to beach

Posted Jul 15, 2013 on Hotels
The hotel is comfortable and the staff courteous. The beach location is great, but we mostly stayed around the swimming pools. There are two large pools and a third smaller one. We chose an option with breakfast included and it was nice, but after a few days it does get old. Our room was very comfortable and a nice size, but the air conditioning didn't work as well as we would have liked. Overall it is a great place to spend a few days relaxing.

Rude fron desk; petty and annoying policies

Posted Jun 12, 2013
Pros: Since children occupied the pool area most of the day, we stayed away. We found the area peaceful after dark, though. We were surprised by a friendly
Cons: Provide actual service. get rid of the petty policies. replace the front desk personnel with people who actually appear to be glad that you're there
Location: Old City of Ostuni is nearby. Lot of quaint shopping, restaurants, and historical structuras.
We were looking for a beach hotel that was a bit more upscale. We knew that the location catered mostly to Italian guests. I speak no Italian, but my wife is fluent. Because of the way we were treated, we would have stayed elsewhere had we not pre-paid the room. Front desk personnel, pretended not to see us at first. When we finally got their attention, they processed us with all of the friendliness (and efficiency) of the DMV. Upon completion of the check-in process, we had to submit to wearing a colored armband, which had to be worn the entire stay (sleep, shower, meals, even when off-site). Internet was in the lobby only. The room was clean, but sparsely-furnished with the characteristically-Italian hard mattress and wicker sofa. Light in the bathroom was poor, and although there was closet space, they provided no drawers or suitcase stands. We found that the hotel catered to families, because the place was overrun with unruly children. Meals were served buffet style; no al la carte. Food quality was good, selection was average, and service was non-existent. Beach was a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It was nice, but small, compared to the size of the hotel. Towels were not available at the beach, but each could be rented at the front desk for 5€ deposit and a 3€ cleaning fee. Considering that it was a beach hotel with no view of the beach, I would say that when I return to the area, I will avoid this hotel.

Pros: La vegetazione e la tranquillita
Cons: Mancanza di piscina idromassaggio Parcheggio a pagamento

Ho passato 4 giorni di relax con mia moglie e mio figlio di 15 mesi. La struttura merita e nei dintorni c è tanto da vedere.
