How to Get There
Wonderful resort in which is just a shirt drive away from the most beautiful beaches I've seen in Puglia. Rooms were a great size and very clean. Good golf course and great size pools. Definitely a resort to unwind and relax.
We were a group of 12, of which 9 played golf during a week in the first half of May. The hotel was excellent with large rooms, comfortable beds and good showers (my criteria for a good hotel). Breakfast was extensive and of decent quality. We ate mostly in the hotel reataurant which was good, and on two evenings at the Masseria which doubles as the Golf Clubhouse. The hotel navette takes you to and from, whether to eat in the evening or to play golf during the day. The food at the Masseria was centered on local dishes but was copious (7 courses!) and tasty.
The staff in both the hotel and at the golf club were excellent and went out of their way to be helpful.
The course was quite challenging in the wind that we encountered and although the fairways were mostly fairly generous, the rough was heavy and on the back nine there were several serious water hazards. The course is generally in good condition.
This hotel is just lovely. The staff are so friendly and food and service excellent. Rooms are well appointed and very spacious, well worth a visit, stayed here twice and there will be more stays. Can not be faulted.
Really enjoyed our stay here. We visited at the end of August/Early September, and each day we were able to go to either of the pools at any time of day and easily find sun loungers!
Really really good breakfast and food in the evenings, cannot fault the restaurant or hotel staff. While we stayed there was a “live” option on the evening menu where we could chat with the chefs and watch our food be cooked in front of us! There was also live music on a few nights, really got it right! It was not too loud, If you wanted a nice quiet meal taking in the scenery. But equally, if you wanted to engage more, you could have a dance!
Bike rentals were great for seeing the local area and the wildlife reserve just down the road.
Beach shuttle service was easy to use and regular. Will definitely try and return to this hotel. Well equipped and well priced spa also a short walk from the rooms.
The Acaya is a beautiful resort with an outstanding staff. The Local Coach, Elisa helped us have a great journey to many of the lovely towns of Puglia each day. She is creative and attentive and very responsive The staff as a whole are caring, attentive and want to ensure your stay is the best possible. The rooms are perfect, the pools are beautiful. You will enjoy your stay here for trips to explore southern italy or just to relax in a beautiful atmosphere.
