Beautiful hotel, renovated in a stylish and elegant fashion. Gorgeous room and bathroom. Excellent location. Attentive staff. Gourmet breakfast. Dinner was exquisite and very reasonably priced. No view from bedroom (although view from terrace restaurant was superb). Dim lighting in room.
The Marè Resort & Spa is situated in a noble Palace in the center of Trani (Puglia). The hotel is discreet and quite despite its lofty setting. The owners are simple, friendly and caring. The interior decoration was undertaken by a Milanese firm that supplied everything from furnishings to bed-cloth and tableware in harmonized colours whilst the refurbishing of the Palace was dealt by a Roman architect who ingeniously restructured the 13 bedrooms and entrance plus terrace to make the place modern, luxurious and spacious.
The spa was not open.
Wonderful design. Good staff. Excellent position.Very quiet at night. Excellent view from room. The first room I was shown was dark and not appealing. I requested another.
Yes! Hotel was 30 miles away from the central train station. The locator map appears to make it much, much closer. Although the hotel was nice, my wife and I would not have stayed this far away as we had a 6am eurorail ride to Rome the next day. In addition, we arranged for a 5:45 cab ride for the quick trip to the Bari train station. The cab never showed up. At 5:56 am, the night desk clerk literally locked the front door to the hotel and drove us in his personal car to the train station. While I applaud his extra effort and tipped accordingly, a hotel charging this amount and in this class should not have a problem arranging a simple and reliable cab ride.
Our room was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view of the harbor. The shower handle was broken. The staff could have been more helpful with respect to figuring out a call to a frencg cell phone.
Excellent comfortable bedroom and luxury bathroom.
Our (superior category) room was spacious comfortable, and quiet. From the 3 windows in the room we had a fantastic view of the cathedral and harbor. Large modernized bathroom. The hotel has been very nicely restored. Great staff. Breakfast, served in the former chapel, was excellent. It was easy to drive to (plenty of signs) and free parking was available right by the hotel. It's in a good location for walking in the historic center, along the harbor, to restaurants, and to shopping streets. A small point but in a hotel this nice I would have expected to have a place in the shower to set soap and shampoo.
Nice rooms, nice location, very friendly and helpful staff
The location next to the cathedral and the castle was ideal
The building is a very nicely renovated old building in a magnificent position: on the port with superb views of the sea and the cathedral, which is just opposite. The bathroom would need some improvements, despite being really nice desigend, including stone floor and mosaic walls, there is mold in the silicon around the bath tub and the system for letting the water being drained was not working properly (it was neceesary to remove it to let water flow down). The brekafast selection was limited, but of good quality.
Great location, great staff and rooms were spacious and very clean.
The tremendous helpfulness of the staff, the divine comfort of the room, waking to see dawn over the Adriatic, the very best breakfast etc etc no
situation was by far the best part. Room was very comfortable Breakfast was poor and a couple of staff members were not that efficient but others were very helpful.
you could not get a better location. parkign might have been difficult but it wasnt . the sea views and view to the cathedral are fantastic. its quiet and beautiful and excellentlyfitted out it was entirely excellent and there was nothing wrong at all
Location right on water
The sea is just under the windows. The staff is qualified and ready to answer any your question. The hotel environment is quiet and relaxing.
To be honest we didn't like it at all. The staff wasn't good at all. The service very unpleasant. To swim in the pool, you should wear a rubber cap they sell to you! We had a very uncomfortable night because of a gas leakage started in our room's refrigerator. Was 03.00 o'clock in the morning.
Room was large, clean if a bit Spartan. Nicely located on the long promenade, 20 minute stroll to the port area. Parking facilities. Good Italian style breakfast, with plenty of fruit, juices, coissants etc. Excellent restaurant. We paid c. 60 euro for two course meal with wine, brandy and coffee for two, with additional complimentary courses. There are a few other restaurants within a 20 mins stroll. Large swimming pool (must wear swim cap) with plenty of sun beds. Staff were helpful, even though little English is spoken in this region. Weather in August was excellent but hot (30C plus). Air conditioned rooms. The hotel's lido is decking on rocks and requires (hefty) daily entrance charges. No sandy beaches in this region. Bisceglie is not the best town for restaurants. Trani (7km drive away) is much prettier and has many restaurants (recommend Carpe Diem in a side street leading to the port area), so you need to hire a car. Shower cubicle was small.
breakfast the reception, one person was very friendly, the other person was a bit "cool".
It ws ok Parking difficult, not made welcome
facile accessibilità, buona posizione
The staff were very helpful,the hotel served a good range of food for breakfast,and the location was on the coast and very relaxing N A
Location It was a little old and worn.
Very pleasant staff. Very clean . Nice pool Not much to do in the surrounding area. Fine as an overnight stay
Room was very hot. Air conditioner was inadequate.
We had a lovely seaview with balcony and it would have been nice to have tea/coffee making faciliteies in the room. The pool area was very comfortable with padded mattresses, plenty of room. I think the hotel area at beach should be free to hotel guests not 3 eurs discount as ofered!!! (price for 2 sun loungers/umbrella is 35 euros so we had to pay 32 euros!!!
Many thanks to recepionist, Hotel neds maintenance. There is no beach at all. Avoid this place for romantic stay or for a family.
Excellent health facilities, gym, 2 pools etc.
- basically everything ok - staff always nicely available - breakfast with local traditional products not applicable
The pool was very good, the rooms comfortable and clean. I arrived there at 3 in the afternoon and found it impossible to get any lunch as the restaurant was closed. Secondly the staff were not very friendly or polite. They did not even smile pleasantly. Thirdly they did not return my passport and subsequently I had to drive a 630 Km round trip to retrieve it.
The hotel was very clean and well organised, staff were very helpful. A secure integral car park was a bonus. None!
The hotel staff members were very accommodating.. .specifically the front desk personnel. The beds were horrible.
AArrived quite late, staff happy to see us and quite happy toserve us with a drink and snacks in the bar. no, not really , just alittle difficult to find at night.
Very nice hotel with all the services. Very helpful front desk staff.
The staff were extremely friendly & helpful (although see separate complaint return) and the facilities were of a high standard. We were even chauferred in the owner's (Angelo) Rolls Royce. It was too far from the town centre (Bisceglie). Our main aim, however, was to be near Bari, so it wasn't too much of an issue.
the breakfast no
just slpet there
good breakfast, good staff
You should mention that the town of bisceglie has very little if not no taxis available and if you require picked up from the train station for example you need to call the hotel first so they can pick you up
Everthing because the restarant is not open
even if I stayed at the hotel only for one night,having attended Bari for going to the Italy v. Rep. of Ireland soccer match,very kind and helpful in facilitating commuting between Bisceglie/Bari distance fron railway,s station
The staff were very helpful
It was the best value for money we have ever had for a short trip abroad and the facilities far exceeded our expectations. The information correctly reflected the facilities at the hotel. Wonderful garden wit colored flower and perfect Staff of receptionist, very kindly
The hotel is lovely - breakfast was served outside in an area surrounded by some lovely flowers and shrubs. Breakfast was ample - lots of fresh seasonal fruits, yoghurts, bread, croissants, preserves, cheese, and on one day some hard boiled eggs. Fab pizzeria 50 metres from the hotel which was useful as the hotel restaurant did not open all week. Yes - beware when buying drinks from the hotel bar. Very expensive - and the barman added 8 euros onto our bar bill (one round of drinks) one evening 'for service' I wouldn't recommend using the bar - the pizzeria has a lovely bar area, and is half the price of the hotel bar.
