If you want some peace and quiet in paradise...
Posted Aug 24, 2010
Le Vele Resort was perfect for what we needed, which was some rest and relaxation. The hotel building is simple and modern, the location is excellent (the beach is wonderful) and the room was beautiful and furnished appropriately. The hotel is QUIET and PEACEFUL, there were always beach chairs and shades available, the swimming pool is very nice, and the beach is beautiful.
I've read some reviews criticizing the breakfast. First of all, the breakfast is taken to your room at the hour you specify, which is very comfortable. Second, the breakfast was more than enough for me and my husband. A typical breakfast for two would be two bagels, butter, cream cheese, jelly, two bananas, two apples, two oranges, and two bottles of orange juice. We thought the only missing ingredient would be some ham, which we bought at the supermarket (a walkable distance away) and stored in the mini fridge in our room.
The hotel provides beach towels and bottled water all day long for free by the pool, which was a nice touch.
The only bad aspect of the hotel is that it has no restaurant, so you have to leave to eat somewhere else. However, there are several reasonable options within easy walking distance, and it probably added to the tranquility of the place, so it may also be a bonus.
I can't recommend this hotel enough for a quiet, relaxing stay. If you like to swim, read books at the beach, walk, nap, etc, this is the place for you!
