Le Dune Suite is located on an uninspiring street that follows the curve of the sandy beaches of Porto Cesareo. There are a few other such hotels on that street, together with houses and flats on rent. But if it is the beach that you are after, it is probably the best place in Porto Cesareo. "Le Dune" are in fact a small resort (47 rooms altogether) that makes an effort to entertain guests ("animazione" like music, themed buffets, children's activities, excursions on demand etc). In the high season, half board is mandatory and it is just as well as Porto Cesareo's centre is about 30 minutes walk away (and the food menu could be a bit more elaborated, especially for vegetarians). The "milk cow" of the resort is probably its private beach, out which a segment is reserved to hotel guests (but sun beds and umbrella come at a price - quite steep in the high season) while it has a tavola calda (a buffet where one can get comfort food and some healthier options too) and bar. There is also a gourmet restaurant, Acqua, specialised in sea food. In "Le Dune", rooms are functional but none have views on the sea! The bar is conceived like a sun deck but the view is obstructed by the sack on the private beach. The staff at the reception, bar and restaurants are trying their best to help guests. The resort seems to cater mostly for Italian patrons but information is available in English. Internet is free but can be slow or capricious. On the surroundings of the hotel, one could say that more could have been done to preserve the environment and "Le Dune" are practically invisible, except for a mini hill that borders the end of the hotel's private beach. Hawkers come and go the day long, selling anythings from "coco fresco" (pieces of cocunuts) to beach wear and sunglasses ...

Although we have been there in the off-season the hotel offered a good service. The breakfast was for an italian hotel very good. The restaurants were good. the room was modern and good. Especially Emanuela at the frontdesk was very service oriented and always friendly, even after 12 hours of work. That made us feel very comfortable.

... on out of town dusty road.

This resort sits on the lovely beach at Porto Cesareo (at least I assume it's lovely, as you can't see the sand for all the bodies). Sea is clear and shallow, ideal for kids.

The room here was really good; spacious and modern; the pool bar and the pool area were also very nice (the pool bar is a great area for after dinner drinks). One night dinner was served around the pool which was nice, but the hotel didn't seem to have a "no smoking around food" policy which is less nice when seated next to a chain smoking couple.

Wine the first night was complimentary and served fairly freely; the second night dinner was served inside and we had to catch the attention of the sommelier who seemed to have 2 jobs: looking important and upselling wine ("tropo caro" came In handy, we compromised at €25).

The food here was mixed: some was okay, some was awful; the cold and curdled beef main was especially poor; also don't expect to linger, you will be in and out of dinner in under an hour.

So to conclude: nice room; okay staff; nice pool bar; crowded beach and poor to middling food; and all for around €300 per couple per night. Not my idea of a good deal.

4 night stay in early June. Hotel is nice, but not luxurious. Access to the private beach makes it a very convenient stay, try to reserve an umbrella well in advance. Restaurant is good, and roof top bar is good for a late night drink.

The beach itself is amazing, clean clear water can rival many Caribbean destinations. The town is fun as well, good restaurants at very reasonable prices
