Hotel Grotta Palazzese - Polignano a Mare

4 star Hotel Polignano a Mare

Via Narciso 59 - Polignano a Mare

Price starting from 120.00
In the old and small town of Polignano, the sea created grottoes that creap under the houses. The larger of those grottoes, the Palazzese cave, was used by Duc de Leto as hall for his parties in the XVIIIth century. Nowadays, it's our restaurant: romantic, unique. Lobsters, fishes and shellfishes are the specialities and also typical dishes from Mediterranean food. Up on the cave, 24mt on the cliff overlooking the sea, the hotel opened all the year long and the indoor restaurant that here works from October to April. Beyond the main building, both sides of the grotto, upwards, there are some characteristic rooms with a little balcony overlooking the sea. In summertime: sea, sun and sense of wellbeing; in the other months: sea, sun and relaxation in a nice town where temperature never goes below zero.

the singular aspect of this hotel that characterizes and distinguishes it is the setting of windows and balconies in a wall overlooking the ocean and rising up directly from the ocean. Leave the balcony open and listen to the splash of the ocean striking the outer wall of your room!!

Hotel itself claims to be 4 star but its far from it in my opinion. no lift, no proper shower, rooms are very small, tv is from last century, had to go downstairs to reception to find out how to work the remote control and was told 2 different things by different staff... we booked this hotel so we could visit the restaurant which is based at the bottom of the building with open views into sea only to be told on arrival that it was booked and we had no access to it. when asked why no one told we were shocked by the answer which was that we booked hotel and not the restaurant! in my opinion its got a long way to go before it reaches 4star rating...

For the price paid there should be more luxe I have stayed in another hotel a day before and the room was much better and the price was much cheaper. The only good thing is the view. and location sea front but rooms are simple or very simple....
