13 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
1st timers to Italian Riviera
"We stayed at this hotel for our 1st trip to Italy in 07. I have a 17 yr old daughter & 13 yr old daughter. Unsure what to expect we arrived at Venice airport in drizzle. By the time we got to the hotel weather was fab and remained so throughout the week. Brenda and family were brilliant with us and did everything they could to ensure our stay went well. We are returning in 2008 for 2 weeks as my family loved it so much. My daughter was so impressed with the Hotel that she commented she would like to return once each year and would like her family (future) to holiday there along with her grandchildren (future)!!!!! and all this from two teenagers who did not want to go in the 1st place and 1 hubby who hates booking hols and leaves it all to me!!!! We did the trip to Venice....breathtaking... beach - fab - and you dont have to pay for deckchairs and brollies. Food - excellent.....Thankyou Hotel D'annunzio .... Newport South Wales"

Friendly staff, great clean beach
"Just returned from a week at the Hotel D'annunzio and loved it.As we arrived we were greeted by Brenda and made to feel very welcome.It was also obvious that many people on our coach were return visitors as they were greeted like old friends.Our room was compact but fine for our purposes , spotless, and clean towels everyday.
The continental breakfast offered the normal choices along with fresh fruit , youghurt, and the chef's special bread pudding.On half board you could eat at lunch or dinner.As well as the chef's set meal you could also have anything from a wide menu, add extra chips , veg , side salad. All food was cooked to order and very tasty.One of the dessert choices was a lemoncello.
The hotel has a section of private beach, no charge for deckchairs or umbrellas.Beach was 2 mins walk, very clean with loos and showers.(Blue flag beach)
The hotel has a nice pool and sun lounging area , and although the hotel appeared to be full we never had a problem getting a deckchair on the beach or at the pool.
A very relaxing and enjoyable experience."

Just loved everthing
"Would just like to say anyone travelling to this hotel will not be disappointed. The food is good,cooked to order. Rooms basic but clean and towels changed everyday.Located very close to the beach and with your own deckchairs and parasol.Staff could not be more friendly and helpful.This is a very quiet hotel with no night time entertainment."

Fantastic Holiday, Absolutely Loved It - Irene Cumbernauld
"Spent a fantastic week here with my daughter. The best hosts I've ever met. Maurizio and the rest of the family couldn't do enough for you. They were always pleasant and attentative. Waiters and waitresses were superb and the food was great. The rooms were cleaned every day by a lovely little lady. It is so near to everything you could ever want in a resort holiday. Fantastic!! Will definitely be back - have already recommended it to friends and family."

"My partner and I stayed in this hotel in August 2006.It was faultless. Firstly, when we arrived we were plesantly suprised, the hotel looked alot better than the photos we had viewed. Inside we wer met by a very helpful and friendly member of staff. The staff could not do enough for you.
The room was fine, a good enough size for the both of us and overlooked the main street where we were stayin (you could see the ocean too).
The area in which this hotel is located is lovely. The main street is full of restuarants, shops, etc. It is only a 2minute walk to the beach! The hotel has its own private are on the beach with plenty of deck chairs. A 5 minute walk behind the hotel is a massive water park which is great for people of all ages.
We stayed for 7nights at the D'annunzio. To be honest, i feel you must travel out of the area at least one of the days to experience other sights in Italy. We travelled a short distance to Venice - which i must say, absolutely made our holiday. If you have never been to venice - this is a must, while on your holiday to italy.
The food in this hotel is fabulous - especially for a 3* hotel. We were half bored. We had breakfast every morning which consisted of toast and cereal (you could have a fry) and then our evening meal, there was a good selection (the lasagne is to die for!!).
The hotel pool is a good size but as with most hotels youv got to be up early to get a lounger beside the pool!
All in all, this hotel we felt was great. It had everything you need close by and if you want you can travel further to visit sights such as venice or the dolomites."

"Wonderful hospitality! We loved the hotel - owners and staff were first class. Nothing was too much bother. The food was very nice and well presented. The rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels (even if you didn't need them!) Although we prefer the south of Italy I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Definately the friendliest people of any hotel we have stayed in. Loved it!"

"Excellent hotel and with enchanting Venice so close. The staff were so friendly and helpful especially Brenda, Maurice, Monica and Senna. Will definately be booking again. The hotel is so well placed for the beach, shopping and friendly bars, though one could always just put the feet up at "Friends" and enjoy Maurice`s excellent service."

Fantastico, Bravo, Bravo
"Fantstic hospitality. Maurice, Monica and Brenda really look after you. You're made to feel like one of the family. Great food. Excellent pavement cafe / bar known as the 'friends' bar. Rooms lovely and clean. Nice pool area, plenty of sunbeds. Private section of beach with free deck chairs. Jesolo is a nice family resort with plenty to do for the kids and has its very own water park which is one of the best i've been to. Venice nearby too. They have there own website, which is very useful. [--]"

Excellent position in Jesolo
"We would stay in this hotel again without hesitation. The position on the piazza is magnificent and also, the close proximity to the beach. Our room was small but had everything we needed and the bathroom was very well fitted out, everywhere was spotlessly clean. A couple of hooks in the bathroom would have been helpful for hanging clothes but we managed. The food, especially dinner, was very good with a good variety of choice and the pasta! To die for. We had several lunches which was very good but the crowning glory must be the staff. All of them without exception were extremely friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make our trip even more enjoyable. Yes, we hope to return. Jean and Marion from the UK."

"This is the first time we have been to Lido Di Jesolo and we would definitely go back! Hotel room was basic but clean, and the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The pool was very nice and there was no fight for sunbeds, there was plenty for everybody. The staff even served food and drink round the pool! Would definitely recommend the chocolate doughnuts. The breakfast was very basic however the evening meal was lovely, and there was something for everybody. Evening meal consisted of starter, main course and dessert - two choices of pasta and one choice of soup for starter. For the main course there was a special every day, however if not to your taste, there were many other options such as pizza, lasagne, burger, pasta and omelettes. The beach was a five minute walk away, and there were free deckchairs and tables for the hotel sectioned off. The pedaloes at the beach were also very reasonable prices. (9 euro for an hour and 6 euro for half an hour) Aqualandia was also very good, and if you went to the travel agent down the road from the hotel you could get the tickets for 21 euro. The hotel had a ping pong table with free paddles and balls and there was rarely ever a queue to use it.
Would definitely recommend this hotel!!"
