Grounds at times feel run down, with threadbare vegetation and unkempt gravel paths
Restaurant receives mixed reviews both for food quality and variety
Far from the beach (though shuttle service is provided)
The basic Family Village Hotel offers large rooms in a village-like configuration around a big pool, relative proximity to the beach, and some services on-site like a first-aid station and a small playground for kids. The restaurant generally receives mixed reviews, though the shaded outdoor terrace is a pleasant place for a meal. Rooms are spacious and simple -- some have balconies and kitchenettes -- with dated touches like tube TVs. The grounds could use a sprucing up, but the hotel does offer a free shuttle bus to the nearby beach.
The Family Village Hotel is quite popular with families with children, partly because of the ample size of the rooms and also because of the proximity to the pool, beach, and outdoor activities. The reception building, a stucco structure painted pink that seems to have been built in the 60s, has a somewhat worn look on the exterior, though furniture in the common areas and the interior architecture have been updated. Overall, the feel here is a touch dated, though many guests have commented that the staff are friendly.
11 kilometers from the seaside village of Otranto; a short shuttle ride from the beach
The village is not walking distance from the beach, but the hotel does offer regular shuttle service to the shore. The property is about a 15-minute drive from the village of Otranto, which is accessible via public transportation a handful of times a day.
Plain and spacious rooms with minimal décor and dated textiles
The aesthetic here is 80s farmhouse, to the extent that there is any décor at all; bedspreads, couch coverings, and curtains are in shades of mustard yellow and pea green. Guests have commented favorably on cleanliness and the size of the rooms. All rooms have tile floors, wall-mounted air-conditioning units, and small tube TVs; some have large balconies with tables and chairs, and most have stall showers. Families with multiples guests might appreciate the amount of space available.
The Family Village Hotel is not packed with amenities, though it does have a big pool placed in the center of the property. There is also regular entertainment provided by some members of the staff; this element receives positive reviews from guests. There is a small playground on-site (though it feels a bit dated). The restaurant is reportedly somewhat repetitive in its offerings, but there is a lovely shaded outdoor terrace that is a pleasant place for a meal.
