          Five star prices but not 5 star services. ”

          Room was too hot, air conditioning had no instructions, staff could not help. When I finally got it working it was largely ineffective so had to sleep with windows wide open. TV only worked precariously by wiggling cables. Bed was hard, pillows saggy - not v. luxurious. Lighting in the room was v bright or off, no dimmers or zone lighting for relaxing. Bulbs missing. Parts of the decor have been refurbished but it is an incomplete job and there are tired old relics of the 1970's in places: the ceilings, pieces of older furniture, light fittings and trims and, I suspect, parts of the wiring. Food and drink are VERY expensive: Cipriano prices, so count €24 for a cocktail or €15 for a glass of wine! The food is not all it's cracked up to be either: standard buffet breakfast, not great coffee, etc. I had rather unfresh tasting prawns for lunch and my starter in the main restaurant tasted pre prepared is if it had come straight out of the fridge The main dining room looks tired.

          Stunning hotel ”

          I visited this hotel 30 years ago for the day and have wanted to return ever since. It was a perfect ending to a family cruise through the Mediterranean this past summer. After the crowds throughout Europe staying here was so welcome. It’s quiet and relaxed. The pool and beach are beautiful. The conceirge recommended several restaurants that were among our favorites of the trip. Away from the crowds of San Marco but close enough to visit on a fun 10 minute vaporetta ride.

          A bit far from the main island and the port of the Lido island but worth staying here. There is a private harbour for this hotel for the transportation from main island. Hotel itself was gorgeous. Additionally, there were nice restaurants nearby. Recommend to stay.

          Location, view from the room and breakfast.

          I have stayed on the Lido before so already knew what a great location it is for those who want to get away from the crowds in Venice and yet still be with in easy reach of the sights. The private boat service from the hotel to Venice is superb and the trip is a memorable experience in itself. The breakfast was very good. We did not visit the other restaurants or bars. Our only complaint was the slow wi-fi which is not acceptable for a hotel of this class.

          L'hôtel est très propre, très chic, on y mange bien, mais tout est cher! Le petit-déj' ne casse pas des briques, un peu basique (25€ tout de même pour rien qui soit exceptionnel, et surtout pas le pain, pas le point fort des Italiens, le pain).
