We spent a few days in the hotel in October. Warm, sunny weather, the sea was warm, clear and amazingly blue. Beautiful location, friendly staff. Amazing management.We totally fell in love with the place.
Highly recommended!

New facility, opened just 2 years ago. Friendly and helpful staff even if not very experienced and not always professional. Rooms clean and quiet even if mine is without balcony (not a secondary problem when you go to the beach and you need to roll out and dry). Good location even if in the surroundings there are only rocks and not sandy beaches. Hotel well attended: customers of medium-high, silent and polite. To improve the food: varied and abundant buffet but not excellent variety. However, positive experience!

This is a lovely hotel, right on the sea front. On entering, you get an immediate impression of the quality and comfort of the hotel. The rooms are very well equipped, light, spacious and comfortable. There is a hospitality tray for hot drinks, fridge and safe, that you don't have to get on the floor to use. We had a small balcony overlooking the beach. Meals are buffet style. The food and service was excellent. The hotel is well situated, with good walks around the bay to neighbouring villages. A great stay.

We stayed with a group for a week. The hotel has a lot of nice aspects. It is a short walk to a couple of nice beaches and to the small town. There is an area right in front for sunbathing and maybe some swimming but the water was too rough the week we were there. We had a room in front with a balcony on the top floor, which was a great view, but most of the rooms do not have much or any view. Dinners are always 7:30 and they have a buffet nightly, though our large group had prepared multiple course meals most nights. The food is superior to most hotel restaurants and the wine good.
There is a beautiful full size swimming pool.
One disappointing aspect was the spa we had a facial and massage and they were not good at all compared to other hotel spas that we have tried. Also the exercise room is very rudimentary with only a few basic machines, no TV or music and is tiny. However you can get some exercise by walking biking or jogging along the coast

Situated on the seafront at Santa Maria Al Bagno, this hotel really delivers. Obviously the location is great but the rooms and restaurant offer are also way above average. Handy for both Lecce and Gallipoli but quieter and easier to access.
