Oyster Hotel Review


Residence PuntaCassano is a family-owned, apartment-style boutique with a casual feel.

Residence PuntaCassano is a family-owned, apartment-style resort with a casual feel. It's popular with Italian families looking for value accommodations by the sea. It's the kind of place where cats roam freely, dogs are welcome, and the sound of kids playing can be heard from the on-site playground. The decor is very simple -- mostly white with pops of bright color reflective of the seaside surroundings. There are few public gathering spaces and vacationers use the resort not as a destination itself, but a home base for exploring the town of San Foca and beyond. However, the grounds are well-kept and lush.


Steps from the sea and the promenade that leads to San Foca.

Located in Italy's Puglia region, the Residence PuntaCassano is in the fishing and boating center of San Foca, an area filled with shops and restaurants. The property is just a few steps from the sea and the promenade that leads to San Foca and a public, but quiet, beach. Lecce and Otranto are both less than 15 miles away and are popular day trips from the hotel. Lecce has a train station that links the town to the the main Italian cities for those who wish to explore further.


Rooms are apartment-style and basic with kitchenettes.

Fifteen apartment-style rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and kitchenettes make up Residence PuntaCassano. Accommodations on the ground level have patios while those on higher floors have balconies with views of either the sea or the garden. The "monolocali" rooms are the smallest of the rooms, while the others are nearly twice the size. Decor is clean and simple: white walls and white tiles floors with pops of bright colors on bed linens, wall art, and cabinets. Each room's balcony or patio comes with furnishings for sitting and relaxing outdoors.


The resort swimming pool, a lovely garden, and an almost-private beach are among the favorite (and only) guest amenities.

Guests of Residence PuntaCassano enjoy relaxing in the property's swimming pool, well-kept garden, and the quiet, nearby beach. Wi-Fi is free and the resort rents bikes out for an additional charge. Laundry facilities are also available for an additional cost. Parking is provided free of charge.
