There aren't enough superlatives to describe the hotel in its entirety. The staff are amazing, so helpful and attentive from the get go, through to lunch time meals by the pool, dinner in the evening in the restaurant and services provided by reception.
The two bed apartment we booked was extremely spacious for 2 adults and 3 kids, with a lovely veranda to enjoy drinks on whilst the kids were in bed and a real sun trap too! The kitchen was kitted out well with everything you need including a dishwasher and the maid kept things lovely and clean on a daily basis with fresh towels etc.
The pool is big with more than ample sunbeds and super comfy too with thick cushions and a baby pool as well as a shallow are in the main pool for little ones. It felt so exclusive for three of the days we were the only ones around the pool.
The main purpose for the visit was a trip to the World Superbikes at the Misano Marco Simoncelli Circuit, just 6 km away, so we spent three of the days away from the hotel, but on returning late afternoon the pool was a welcome refresh after temperatures reaching 40 degrees!
There is table tennis and football/tennis court too as well as a play area for smaller kids full of Little Tikes houses and the like to keep them happy whilst you finish dinner, within full view of the restaurant so you can keep a close eye.
The hotel is close enough to lots of places, provided you have a car, to get out and about - Misano, Cattolica, Ancona.....the best beaches are a little further afield, maybe 45 minutes away, although there are beaches very close too, they just aren't as picturesque as the ones a little drive away.
The kids were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Jennifer was particularly lovely. We will definitely re-visit but instead of spending a week there for the motorbike racing next time, it will be two! We miss it already and we've only been home a day!
