Decent standard, great location, good value overall.

Hotel Marco Polo is a peach sorbet-like affair. This is a 2nd-tier property, 5 mins from room to beach and very own umbrella & lounge set. MP is no US warehouse-like vacation resort. It's quaint, Italian style, but Spartan: 1 terry & 1 cloth towel per guest, reluctantly replaced; extra towels=extra charge; no beach towels; 1 tiny freebie soap, reluctantly replaced; no shampoo, conditioner, lotion. No coffeemaker, no el. kettle, no wi-fi. Small fridge is inefficient, as is AC unit. Breakfast is a stingy buffet with bad coffee. Resort prices in town are norm. People-watching is free :) Venice proper is easily accessible by public transportation even for us West Coast people who have not been on a bus since elementary school. Ignore lack of US amenities. We had the best vacation here. God willing, we'll return.
