Very easy check in, even though very little English spoken! Simply decorated, charming room, with glorious sea view. Best location in village, with private sun deck areas right at the sea. Good continental breakfast, with great coffee! This hotel is lucky enough to have an excellent chef. We ate lunch and dinner here a few times, the food was superb,... More

Hotel is right on water with beautiful views over the bay. Swimming just off the rocks in front of hotel. Unfortunately when we were there weather was not good enough for swimming as water was too rough. The bay is not protected so waves come right in if it's windy. The food, unfortunately, was average. For dinner suggest you look... More

We just returned from this hotel, the last leg in a tour of Puglia. It was perfect. Large, un fussy rooms, lovely bar and restaurant, beautiful view, and right on the sea. But most importantly the staff and owner were so lovely and went out of their way to help and accommodate us. We would not hesitate to stay again.

We had a wonderful time at La Roccia Hotel. The location is a great with its private beach on the rocks and direct access to the sea. The food is good. The service is very nice ! The place is in the middle of the village, at the same time very typical and quite. The rooms are cute and very... More

We stumbled upon this gorgeous place in the lower Salento after a long, and very ugly drive down on the Ionian side of Puglia from Matera this past September. We were very tired, hungry and unimpressed with that side of Puglia and cancelled our reservations at a B & B in Gagliano del Capo once there and discovering that the... More

We just came for dinner and the location of the restaurant is beautiful however the food is not up to scratch. It was the worst pasta ever... simply tasteless. We don't recommend the place for food, only for drinks. Service was ok. Waiters were attentive.

Fantastic location with direct access to the water which is rare to find, food is good and lots of places to visit by car nearby (culture, history, magnificent coastline). We have been back 3 years running for a week.

LA Roccia what a great location right in front of the bay in Castro . Small boutique hotel with 20 room all facing the water. Minimalist interior designer all white and blue, with a bar/restaurant and lido open to the public . Food not the best around but amazing location overlooking the water and the bay.

We stayed a few nights and there are some positive sides: excellent location directly on the sea, children- and dogs friendly, whitewashed walls and renovated decor, better- than- most graphic design and nice details (white and blue furniture and table mats, nice umbrellas, nice outdoor lamps and chairs) and with a decent website. Nice smiling owners. The down sides: service... More
