Staff at reception are not very nice, always edgy. At breakfast there is a limited variety, not what I would expect from a 4 stars hotel, also if you're vegan or vegetarian you can only eat fruits. We had a few issues in the room, hairdryer didn't work, they brought us a new one and left the broken one attached to the wall. The towel rack broke, and also the flush at some point broke and made an awful noise: we had to get maintenance at 22pm to get if fixed. The worst part though were the owner and his wife, they commented on every single person and would shush our kids. He also told us out loud "when are these kids leaving???". I have a child with ADHD and it's already hard enough for me without having silly people commenting on us. Not to mention his personal hygiene was terrible and he smelled really bad. In general staff at reception was in a bad mood and not helpful. You also have to pay to shower coming off the beach, as well as being charged extra for towels. Lo staff in reception è scorbutico la maggior parte del tempo. A colazione è ok ma la varietà è limitata, non quello che ti aspetti da un 4 stelle. Se sei vegetariano o vengano puoi solo mangiare frutta. In stanza abbiamo avuto diversi problemi: lavandino otturato, asciugacapelli rotto, WC rotto, porta asciugamani rotto... ma la parte peggiore erano il proprietario e sua moglie: commentavano su ogni persona, zittivano i nostri bambini e facevano commenti negativi. Inoltre lui non sembra lavarsi ed emana un odore terribile. Lovely location, staff at the beach and at breakfast were exceptional. Room was good looking. Parking is also a great perk and you can get bikes for free. La location è fantastica, lo staff in spiaggia e al servizio eccezionale. Le stanze sono belle, il parcheggio per clienti è ottimo e si possono prendere le bici gratuitamente.

This is our third stay at Hotel Blu. This time we stayed at one of their beach apartments. I reconfirm everything I have said a few years ago about the hotel. Our apartment was still ideally located a few meters away from a paradise beach and also allowed us more flexibility with a second bedroom. Besides, I found great value for money with a beach umbrella and two beds included in the rent. I have also noticed continuous investments and improvements in the hotel infrastructure, although there is still room to further improve. All in all, apartments are an excellent alternative to hotel rooms for families with small children like ours who may need a kitchen and more flexibility.

Stayed at the Hotel Blu in June 2018 for a couple of nights. Would have loved to stay more! Excellent location just on a private sand beach in the Porto Cesareo bay. The hotel has a recently refurbished reception and dining area with a modern look, rooms are spacious and well equipped with a stunning view over the beach. Despite the proximity to the beach it is very quiet and comfortable. Best way to get here is probably by car, with a private car park with assigned spots to every guest. The hotel also offers bicycles to use for its guests which are great for a ride to the center of the town. Staff is always available and very friendly. The dining facilities are spacious and the menu is excellent with great variety. Also for breakfast there is a very good assortment for every taste. Highly recommended.

Un posto incantevole... da sogno! Hotel pulitissimo e bellissimo...stanze e servizio al top. Personale molto cordiale e disponibile. L'hotel si trova praticamente sul mare... la vista è mozzafiato. Assolutamente da rifare... contiamo di tornarci molto presto. Provare per credere. Grazie a tutto lo staff dell' hotel blu. The place was just amazing...a dream! The hotel was quite clean and the rooms all looked immaculate. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The hotel is right in front of the beach...and the view is breathtakingly stunning. It's absolutely a must... we are planning to go there again soon. Many thanks to all the staff that made our stay a very enjoyable and unforgettable one.

Hotel Blu advertises itself as a 4 star hotel. As a seasoned traveller I can tell you it does not behave like one and if it is a 4 star it is the worst one I have ever stayed in. At best I would describe it as a mid range 3 star. It looks like it was built in the 60’s or 70’s which may well be when it was last painted and photographed. Breakfast is good with standard range of food of which there is plenty. From there it is downhill. Perhaps it was unlucky that it rained while we were there but the streets were flooded and there was a lot of standing water around that the hotel did not clear away and it led to a proliferation of biting insects. The patio was dirty as were the rooms. The hotel advertises its own private beach. Private it is not. There was also a lot of debris that was washed up and this decayed making the smell on the beach intolerable. The water quality was so poor that it was like swimming in a very messy and dirty soup. Staff were indifferent and the owner/manager was not interested in our issues. Overall, the hotel is not good value for money. If you go take insect repellent and bite creams. You will need both. I’ve taken some photographs and will upload them so you can make up your own mind.

Response from GiuseppeBax, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Hotel Blu
Responded 21 Apr 2015
Gentile Cliente, mi fa piacere che la colazione le sia piaciuta ma per tutto il resto sono quasi allibito. Come è possibile sostenere che il nostro hotel non abbia una spiaggia privata???Vuol dire che tutte le foto che vede, comprese quelle postate da utenti di tripadvisor, sono false?E lei stesso dove è stato allora?E poi una struttura può piacere o non piacere ma definire il nostro mare "una zuppa caotica e sporca" deriva o da una erronea percezione della realtà o da non so cos'altro. Vorrei farle notare, inoltre, che la presenza di alghe in spiaggia e di acqua nei cortili, alle ore 6 del mattino (quando ha scattato le foto), dopo una notte di pioggia intensa e mare mosso, non credo possa dipendere da una nostra mancanza, poichè se cerchiamo di fare tutto il possibile per venire incontro alle esigenze del cliente, per impedire acquazzoni e mareggiate non abbiamo ancora trovato soluzioni. Mi spiace che abbia pubblicato quelle foto poichè si sarà benissimo reso conto che due ore dopo, grazie al cambiare delle correnti (per quanto riguarda le alghe) e all'intervento del nostro personale (per tutto il resto) la situazione era perfettamente normale. E mi spiace anche che abbia pubblicato foto, non so a che fine, del tutto esterne alla struttura, come la strada accanto o il lido di un altro albergo. Rispettiamo sempre le opinioni del cliente e accettiamo sia i complimenti che le critiche ma, in questo caso, sono state scritte e fotografate cose che poco hanno a che fare con la nostra struttura e con il nostro lavoro. Distinti saluti.
