Excelsior Hotel La Fonte
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Portonovo
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This is a good hotel, if you have no problems with thin walls (yes, you can hear what your neighbours talk and what they watch on TV) and rather avarage standard (beds, breakfast. bathroom, etc.). We were here for a conference and everyone was wondering how this can be a 4 star hotel (3 at the most). Location is good if you like to be close to the beach, taxi to Ancona is about 35 Euro (car is recommended if you want to get around). There are a few restaurants nearby, Fort Napoleone the more classy one, Il Molo at the beach is our personal recommendation.
Try to get a room on the balcony side in the third floor.

Room Tip: Room 303 is a corner room (only one neighbour!) in the third floor, balcony side. You will have to f...

this hotel well deserves its 4 stars. beautiful location in the heart of Portonovo bay, a hidden treasure in Le Marche. Perfect accomodation for those who love a peaceful, relaxing place on the sea. Don't expect much nightlife, but if a charming seaside landscape is what you are looking for, this is the right place. Excellent and polite service, great food, rich breakfasts, spotless and very nicely decorated rooms, lovely swimming pool and lovely stone beaches at walking distance. The only thing I would improve is the wifi connection.

Perfect hotel service -we had half board (mezza pensione) and every night excellent diner at the Hotel Forte Napoleonico which has the same owner - it's 300 meter walk from the Exelsior La Fonte Hotel but the walk is more than worth to be done !!!
Excellent breakfast with fresh coffee served (no vending !!!)
Altough price class is somewhat higher we found price/quality correct.

Room Tip: Kamers met balcon zijn het best gelegen

The hotel is in an excellent position in the centre of the Riviera Del Conero. Rooms are clean and comfortable with the family rooms being of a nice size, however rooms witout balconies are small and face staight onto the side of the mountain making them dull and clostraphobic. The staff are always attentive and whilst breakfast is just a small continental buffet, it can be eaten outside in the courtyard and the cappuccinos are to die for. The pool area has been virtually deserted every time we have visited and it feels as though you have your own private pool and bar. Overall the location and staff are excellent, the rooms and decore are clean but nothing special, the pool is lovely but the hotel, like many in Italy is pricey. Definately eat out at the local fish restaurants on the beach, Anna's and Marcello's are especially good or for a cheaper option head up the mountain to Rosso Conero or inland 20 minutes to the best of all Il Gallo Bianco near Offagna.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony
