From the outside, the Costa del Salento looks like a pretty ordinary, white, 2 storey Mediterranean-style building, adorned with only two palm trees to either side of the entrance. The unpretentious decor of the reception, which was renovated in 2006, is low-key and pretty basic, consisting notably of geometric shapes and complementary colours.
This part of the hotel also includes 20 guest rooms, whilst the rest of the village runs along the walkways in between the 2 storey buildings. Unfortunately, despite the odd bit of greenery here and there, the concrete alleyways around the complex certainly don't make for the most welcoming of surroundings. The lovely children's play area, however, with its slides, seesaws, and various other bits and pieces set under the shade of the pine trees is far more pastoral.
If you like to keep active whilst on holiday, you'll be pleased to know that the hotel has a tennis court and a multipurpose pitch, as well as a swimming pool and bikes available to hire for the ridiculous sum of around £13 a week.
The Costa del Salento offers 3 appealing additional services to enhance your stay here, including dry cleaning, massages provided in an outdoor booth, and a small shop selling traditional products and objects.
