Lawns and Mediterranean landscaping touching a golden sandy beach, with transparent turquoise sea; not one, but two lovely pools; and a smart, stylish and spacious interior. A great seaside location.
Hotel Del Levante nestles into the sweeping curve of a golden sandy beach, which gently shelves into a transparent and turquoise sea. At the other end of the bay, lies the small resort of Torre Canne and the gleaming white lighthouse, sitting on the horizon, tempts you to take a stroll along the sand. In fact, a sandy saunter of about 500 metres brings you into the resort. Alternatively, the route into Torre Canne by road is about one and a half kilometres.
It is definitely its location that scores Hotel Del Levante highly with us. Built in the 80’s, this hotel impresses us also for its gardens and the absolutely charming and stylish marine design of its spacious lounges. The lovely fresh combination of marine blues and whites is punctuated with beautiful Pugliese Cutrofiano ceramics and large comfy sofas. It all feels very smart. There is a welcoming bar area, which spills onto the elegantly furnished terraces in good weather, and a predictably large restaurant. The rooms feel slightly more ordinary, but they are all comfortable and spotlessly clean.
The crowning glory of this spectacular location is that the grounds almost reach the water’s edge. Pretty landscaping, expanses of green lawns, lofty palms, secular olive trees, Mediterranean cacti and flowering plants and shrubs adorn the terraces, always with a backdrop of blue sea and sky. It’s a picture! The large pool and children’s pool sit on the terraces and there is plenty of room for sunbathing or sitting under the shade of an olive tree, reading a book. Close to the beach and elevated above it, is the popular outdoor dining area, an intimate space, which serves delicious salads and snacks during the day and then becomes a pizzeria and a la carte restaurant in the evenings.
Hotel Del Levante’s own private beach is fantastic. Torre Canne’s long, wide stretches of golden sand and shallow, transparent waters attract holidaymakers and locals, especially in high season and at weekends. Quite low-key at times, and absolutely buzzing with life at others, a small handful of gelaterie, restaurants, bars, shops, a short promenade and a striking lighthouse, render it interesting enough to potter around, day or night.
Beyond Torre Canne, in both directions, the sea is a dream. Going southwards, you will find a choice of serviced lidos, with golden sand, some with good eateries. Going north, the coastline is rocky, with a few small coves and access into the sea from the rocks, and the delightful fishing village of Savelletri.
So, on the strip of Adriatic coast, which has some of Puglia’s most lovely sandy beaches, Hotel Del Levante is really well placed for exploring some of Puglia’s most interesting and beautiful towns, such as Fasano, Cisternino, Ostuni, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Monopoli (all within 25km), and it is less than 2km from a small resort.
The rooms are pleasant, slightly corporate maybe, but they are all comfortable and spotlessly clean.
These rooms come with sea-view or non-sea-view. Frankly, we would definitely recommend the sea-view rooms. Some of these have windows; others have a small balcony with a small table and two chairs and these are the ones we would plump for in this category. Interconnecting standard rooms are available.
These have a sea-view and balcony large enough for a couple of sunbeds, as well as a small table and two chairs. They also include the cost of beach and pool towels, so definitely are worth the extra, if your budget can stretch to it. Interconnecting superior rooms are available.
SUITE or FAMILY ROOM
These can accommodate 2 adults & 2 children on extra beds/sofa beds. The Suites have two rooms and one shower room. Family Rooms are larger than standard rooms, but are one room, with one shower room. Both room types have sea-view, but no balcony.
SPECIAL FAMILY OFFER
This is particularly good, as it includes two adjoining standard or superior rooms, each with its own shower room, but you will receive a discount from the price of the second room. This offer is available for families with 2 children aged 18 or under - please see Special Offers tab for details.
