Pleasant grounds, good service, clean rooms, walk to centro, indoor pool, sauna, close to Cortina. {4 stars}

Good experience at this four star hotel. This hotel is approximately 9 km from Cortina, which was convenient for our family. We stayed here because my husband's grandmother stays here for three weeks every summer to get away from the heat and he wanted to see her. It was astonishingly beautiful with cool fresh air. The perfect place during those hot Italian summers.

THE ROOMS

Each room has a balcony, a good-sized bathroom with a modern shower (that also has a small tub in the bottom for the little ones). There is plenty of storage space and room darkening window coverings. We had two connecting rooms, which worked out nicely. Both rooms were very clean. We had good water pressure and ample hot water.

THE HOTEL

The grounds are large and beautifully maintained. There are tennis courts, a large sitting area and, directly below the htoel, there is a large park that has a play area for kids. The hotel has a large restaurant that had a fixed price meal for lunch and dinner, which was fairly good food. (I don't recall it being the best ever, but ok.) We ate there twice and went out the other times.

Just down the road (we had a car) we went to a very small town (no centro, etc.) and ate at a restaurant where there was no menu. The owner came out and told you what was available. This was one of the best meals I had last summer. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the name of the restaurant.

We grabbed breakfast at a bar every day except one and the breakfast buffet at the hotel is a good size with meats, cheeses, breads, etc. The hotel also has on-site parking and an indoor pool, sauna and gym. There is a rec room downstairs also that has satellite television, some games and movies for kids. Overall, it is well-equipped for even the longer stays.

THE TOWN

San Vito di Cadore is a nice small town. There are several bars and a few restaurants. There is a large COOP across from the park and a few nice eyeglass shops (the area is known for eyeglass frames). We spent a day and a half in Cortina so didn't get to explore all the shops in San Vito. Most people do their shopping at the large COOP.

On the way back to Bologna we swung by Venice just to show the kids! San Vito is easy to get to and I recall about 2.5 hours from Bologna.

We recommend this hotel. Their web-site is informative. I recall paying around the equivalent of US$850 for 3 nights, two rooms. We were there the last few days of July/first few days of August.
