Corvino Resort, recently renovated, far only 4 kms from Monopoli centre, is situated on the evocative Apulian coast, in a green oasis of serenity and peace. It is located just few kms away from the historical, architectural and natural wonders of Alberobello, the caves of Castellana, Ostuni, Martina Franca, Fasano and Polignano a Mare. The resort lays tunefully down on a reef characterized by natural caves, brushed by a deep blue sea with its stunning colors, just 200 meters away from small sandy inlets that can be reached on foot. Thanks to its new management, Corvino Resort represents the perfect location where to spend a relaxing holiday in the pursuit of sport, delicious food and entertainment.

Understanding that you are saving on your holiday, one should consider the level of the residence. Although the club system is far from being called new, it is situated in a beautiful location! Not far from Bari and Alberobello, and fantastic beaches, you can have a great holiday in a nice company especially! The residence beach is not the best one for the kids but the little ones enjoyed the swimming pool a lot. I can not say I was impress by the evening program ‘cause I have seen much better ones before in other hotels. There is no small supermarket on the territory of the residence which is not convenient at all and you should take your car to drive to the supermarket which is 1 km from this place. One other thing that made the holiday not the most enjoyable one: no air conditioning when it is +35 C outside. You feel like in a sauna 24 hours a day. Not taking into account all these disadvantages like *no air conditioning *no supermarket nearby * the beach not adapted for the kids You can have a great vacation because •the location is outstanding •lots of great restaurants nearby •and if you travel with a fantastic company. We enjoyed our short vacation here in spite of all! Thanks a lot!

Firstly do not trust the pictures and the write up from the hotel. Admittedly the area outside is well landscaped and very pretty, unfortunately it ends there! The rooms were in such poor repair it was shocking, no real kitchen just a sink next to a hob (no cooker) with no work surface. You cannot cook and use the sink at the same time without risk of burning yourself. The sink was surrounded by mould. All the furniture was battered and worn to the degree it was mostly unusable. Draws falling apart, door handles coming off in your hand. There was no air conditioning despite the brochure saying it has and the air extractor in the bathroom didn't work so it was like having a sauna every time you took a shower. The hot water was inconsistent in temperature and you had to be ready to turn off the shower at a moments notice if it started to scald or freeze you, very dangerous to be honest. Beds were mostly inadequate except for the double which was fine. No safety rail on top bunk bed. The bug screen on the door had holes so we were constantly finding bugs in our room, we all got bitten. Then there is the beach...the beach itself was beautiful but to get there was a rather treacherous hilly walk, ok if you are young and fit and don't need to carry too much with you. Very steep in places and the handrail is broken in a few places. We went on September 23 and were told the season was closed (weren't informed of this when booking) so no sunbeds or umbrella on the beach. I managed to fracture my ribs getting up and down off the rocky surface. Ended holiday in A&E. There was no entertainment whatsoever and all the restaurants and bars were closed unless you were full board. If you wanted to use the pool you had to wear a swimming cap which none of us had and the hotel did not supply. There were only deck chairs by the pool so you couldn't sunbathe there either. Two of the staff were helpful but the rest were rude or just ignored us. Most did not speak much English so communication was not easy. Hotel wouldn't call us a taxi but offered us a shuttle to town for €15, it as only 2km away, we got a bus in the end for just €1. Really I have nothing good to say about this place except it is near Monopoli which is an amazing city. If you can manage to get to the beach safely it is a lovely rocky cove. I understand they do have better rooms than the ones we stayed in but be warned the pictures do not reflect the resort. You may want to check which dates are "in season" as we had been advised the season ends at the end of September but everything was clear closed when we arrived. The rooms were not cleaned during our stay but we were allowed to go and exchange towels for new ones on a specified day. Also on arrival they asked us for a€200 cash deposit for the room which we refused to pay. We had not been advised of this and found it laughable that they thought we might damage anything as everything was already broken! They would not accept the payment on a card and we did not want to give them our euros, after much complaint and negotiation we were let off this. No safe or hairdryer in the room and no beach towels available to borrow. Really was a poor show.

Dear Loretta, thank you for your evaluation. It regrets that your experience was negative. Accommodation for timeshare exchanges is different from those of the hotel and has different rules for services. These apartments have a different management from that of the hotel, they work as a condominium and would require restructuring, but to make these interventions requires the consent of the owners with assembly resolution, therefore does not depend directly on Corvino. We would always have a direct confrontation with the customers so that they can go against the needs and resolve any issues where possible. If you want to contact us for feedback we will be happy to listen to you and to treasure valuable advice. Kind regards.

I spent five wonderful days with my partner and three children (9,10 and 14 years old boys). We were greeted and made to feel welcome straight away. In particular Angelo at reception was absolutely amazing..... we were looking for a villa-stay solution so that all of us could benefit from privacy and en-suite facilities. Angelo suggested we rented a whole "cupoletta" (Dome) which includes four separate bedrooms with en-suite, air conditioning, fridge and balcony in each room. We were given the master key for the entrance so we had complete privacy and we could keep the bedrooms doors open overnight. Absolutely fantastic. The staff could never do enough for us: Antonio, the bar manager, was professional, friendly and efficient. The food was spectacular and the staff at the restaurant prompt and friendly, especially Mario and Piero. The life guards were professional friendly and efficient, and made sure everyone in the pool would play safely.... a special mention to Cinzia and Leo for being so caring. The premises are sparkly clean, the massive terrace kept clean and tidy by the life guards themselves. My partner got stung by a wasp and the entire resort staff was concerned... they have an A&E office with on-site nurse who treated the bite and had cortison cream especially delivered in no time!!! Entertainement was non-stop all day with choice of line dancing, games, singing, mini club, night shows and night time dancing under the starry Puglia sky.... A special thank you to Paolo, the manager, very friendly and helpful. The rooms might be a little "tired" as some reviews say, but they are kept clean and the beddings and towels changed every day. It was a fabulous immersion in the true italian holiday experience and we will come back next year for a longer stay. Grazie a tutti e arrivederci all'anno prossimo!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at this resort. Though there were some negatives. Our room was very shabby without air conditioning although we noticed that other parts of the resort, had this. We were in Block Three on a timeshare swap this apparently is owned separately from the rest of the resort. The Pizzaeria served reasonably priced food although somewhat limited in choice, other than pizza. The resort was very noisy due to Italian school holidays, early mornings and evenings especially. The swimming pools are lovely but can get very busy. Great entertainment Italian style around the pool. It was an experience, but please take note that you need to drive everywhere as the resort is isolated.

This is a beautiful location where is perfect for families want to go on a beach vacation. The only drawback is that the rooms feel like an old worn out ski lodge from the 1970s. The place needs to be updated to continue business. Breakfast choices could be improved there is a lack of cereal.
