Below is a copy of my last review. The only thing I can ad is that everyone is as smiling and pleasant as we always remember - and there are potted palm trees on our balcony. :>)

"Riccardo and his son, Gabriele, make us feel so welcome - almost like family. This is our 5th stay at this delightful hotel directly across from the beach.

Our large room has one of the 2 huge balconies on the first floor (2nd floor in the US) - overlooking the Adriatic.

We only take half board, as the food is so delicious, if we ate lunch here, we would get charged extra by the airplanes on our way home! :>)

The appetizers are served buffet style, but you choose your first & second courses (the night before), which are served at your table, as well as your chosen dessert. The wait staff are all exceedingly cheerful & attentive.

Across the street is the private beach with your reserved chaises & umbrella. The 2 bocce ball courts are almost always in use. Plus there is a ping pong table.

In the morning, and especially in the evening after dinner, people gather on the large covered veranda to chat and watch the people on the sidewalk below pass by.

Riccardo, Gabriele and the receptionist are always happy to help with any touristic information.

Each time, it is harder for us to say goodbye!!"

Room Tip: Room facing the sea have sea views and get morning sun - but are in shade in the afternoon

I have been coming back often to Hotel Elios for 31 years now with family and friends. I am meeting adults I have seen in Hotel Elios when they were children. I am sure my children will someday bring their children. Repeat business like this is indicative of the (consistent) excellent management of Hotel Elios by Riccardo.

I can't possibly expand on the praise for Riccardo and his staff and the entire customer service experience that my family has experienced year after year.
Gabriele's management of the beach bar is a perfect compliment to the Hotel Elios adjacent private beach area as well.

And we already miss what we consider the best food in the world.

We returned to this wonderful family run establishment, for a short relaxing break during July 2016.
It has an ideal location with its own private beach area, where we were allocated sun loungers and a table with a parasol, all Included in the cost of your stay. The beach has a very safe lagoon bathing area, which is patrolled by lifeguards, an outdoor table tennis table, showers, a lovely beach bar and a couple of botcha (beach boules) areas.

The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff means that your holiday experience here will be second to none and one that you will remember for years to come....or at least your next visit, as you will undoubtably return to this magical place.
The rooms are all well appointed with private facilities, balconies with outdoor sunbathing and sitting areas, as well as air conditioning. Ours was spacious and cleaned every day of our stay.
The cocktail bar was well stocked and has both indoor searing areas, as well as a lovely outdoor terrace, where you can sit, drink in hand, and watch the world go by.

I've left mention of the food, both the choice and quality, until the end of this article, as it is so good and plentiful, with an excellent variety of freshly prepared, locally sourced ingredients- you will need to diet before and after your visit, so as not to miss out on the superb cuisine on offer here....excellent ! All served with a friendly smile by the very efficient, multilingual and helpful staff.

We can't wait to return, to catch up with Ricardo, his family and all of the excellent staff.

Arriverderci !

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent with en suite and air conditioning

I have returned to Hotel Elios many times over the last 42 years and each stay leaves me relaxed and full of good, home cooked food. The Rubinetti family are kind and considerate, always striving to be the perfect consumate hosts! If you are after a traditional beach holiday in Italy look no further.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view.
