Not good behind the scenes!
Reviewed 1 week ago

Histo hotel is a beautiful quiet place situated in an 80 hectares wide area, outside of Taranto. Rooms are very spacious , modern and well equipped . Pool area is nice with a pool of 30 m length, and the different blocks of the complex are well refurbished from what before seemed to have been a monastery .
On the very opposite and most disappointing is the non existing management of the hotel. NO good service nowhere! It started with a most unfriendly reception crew , it went on daily with most bad service at breakfast (the guy that should prepare the eggs in the morning just does not show up ..), and service for dinner was so bad that we waited one and a half hour between starter and main course .
In the rooms we had no warm water for 3 of the 4 days we stayed in the hotel, but this didn’t disturb neither the service staff nor the management.
A pity for such a wonderful place !

A grand building in a gorgeous spot.

This beautiful property is outside of the busy city of Taranto. The grounds run down to the coast, where local fisherman harvest shellfish. it is scenic and restful, with a warm welcome -- and a delicious breakfast. There are two reasons my rating isn't 5 stars. One is that the room was very hot and the air-conditioning was not yet on for the season. Second, I was really sucked in by the beautiful pictures on the web of the large outdoor hot tub and pool. But it turns out that the hot tub, sauna etc are only available to one individual or couple at a time and must be booked far in advance and a supplement paid. It's unfortunate. The service was excellent and the views from our room were beautiful. Superb value for the price.

... if you want to cuddle and at the same time relax ... do not miss the chance to be hosted in this magnificent resort. the attention to detail makes the difference ... you will be pleasantly enchanted by the profound feeling that hovers inside. The rooms and bathrooms are absolutely exceptional ... the gurmet dinner not to be missed and the wraparound location. The staff is then highly professional and absolutely focused on the total well-being of the guests.

A very pretty building in a pretty place.
But...the WiFi is useless, completely useless. You cannot even Skype.
Time and time again they make mistakes in the reception and don’t know how to correct it.
The breakfast is average, they never understand any requirement.
The rooms are either too hot or too cold
The restaurant is overpriced.

I am choosing something different next time I am in Taranto.
