How to Get There
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.
Acaya was the third leg of our Puglia two week vacation and we picked it for the opportunity for a relaxing break in the middle of our Puglia road trip.
It lived up to all expectations, aside from an initial room issue which the hotel dealt with immediately and appropriately the rest of our week was amazing.
The staff were all fabulous particularly Christina who resolved our room, the facilities were immaculate and easily accessible, the full breakfasts were fresh and plentiful and the rooms were stunning and very comfortable.
The activities all come at a cost so be watchful of this but it’s clearly depicted and all are top class including beach club, spa, links golf course and there is an on site restaurant.
Highly recommendable hotel with easy access to Puglia and its highlights.
We just recently returned from a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Acaya Golf & Spa Resort! It is our third stay and we will with no doubt return to this amazing spot, as it has everything needed to make a great stay. There are two swimming pools, a fabulous private beach, spa and very nice restaurants.
The rooms are clean, spacious and the beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and the service they provide is superb. (special thanks to Pascal from the breakfast restaurant) The breakfast buffet is plentiful and the pastry there is very tasteful.
You can choose to have dinner either at the resort or at the Masseria by the golf course. Don't forget to work up you appetite as the menu is exceptional in both locations.
We travel with kids and they are also very welcome at the resort. Again we look forward to our next stay at this resort.
The hotel is located in “Salento” the most beautiful area of Puglia. Excellent staff comfortable rooms, SPA and you have all around you (golf, beach, historical places...). Good food with variety of choices.
Just one remark this place should be perfect if the management would be more firm in the respect of hotel rules: there are two pools one for families and one more quite where children should not be allowed . But this is just on the paper.
I recommend this place for golfers, Acaya course is challenging especially when it is windy and hotel guests have a discount on green fee.
