not starred but very valuable.

Review of Relais Histo'
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 12, 2023
We were there at the end of June 2023.
We chose it from advices and comparing other (starred) resort in Puglia.
This resort is a bit out of luxury circles, but it is very valuable.
From site it seemed nice and from earlier contacts via our travel agency
concierge appeared gentle and efficient, even if their response time was not so smart.
We arranged to fly from Linate to Bari, as railway if out of question, too much time and travel ca be a nightmare.
Place is an ancient convent with old sone walls, all sorrunded by fields and olive plants.
Rooms as been revamped recently and are very spacious, even it some details are not so cared: for example (bad to say... but it's very important anyway...) the toilet was broken: waitrerss did not see it preparing the room, we signalled to concierge and they fixed quicky.
TV was not functiioning as antennas were out of service: concierge did all its best to fix, with no success... but t least we can see streaming. ;(
To sum, up we did appreciate their effort and passion for their resort.
To return to resort, the garden is very nice and cared, the pool si nice and cared, with much space between seats.
The gem is the SPA: spacious, with many different rooms and massages solution.
We di appreciate in particular the people working there: they are all from nearby and the loved their county: usually other famous SPAs (where we were) employ foreign young people that of course cannot communicate the passion for the place as they do not live there.
The did eat at local restaurant: gentle people and nice rural product, but the level is not comparable to a starred restaurant: it's a pity for a such nice place.
Date of stay: June 2023
Room Tip: very quiet. nice to have rest.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Reviewed February 10, 2023 via mobile

We stayed here one night on our trip through Puglia and were delighted to see how this hotel was architectural beautiful.
Location: A bit off the beaten track.
Facility: Beautiful architecture, but very spread out. There is a spa, but we weren’t able to schedule a massage because everything was booked by non hotel guests.
Room: Very large and spacious in a ultra modern taste. Bathroom was good with a huge double headed shower, but we found it difficult to figure out what controlled what. We were also confused by the HVAC because there was a control panel on the wall that didn’t work. It wasn’t until I discovered the the remote that I was able to control the heat.
Food: We ate dinner at the restaurant and was very disappointed by the food and service. There was a large group having dinner and it appeared we were being forced through the meal to get us out before large group showed up.
Service: overall the front desk service was very good, but the lack of service in the restaurant and spa was below par.

While this hotel bills itself as a spa, it operates more like a group hotel.

Room tip: If you plan to use the spa, call before you arrive to book any spa facilities.

Although this is an historical site, the employees are only employeer and not interested in more. The relay is luxurious and has everything. Spa, wellness, restaurant, and correct service. The food is splendid. Thé environment also. It is a Pearl. Too bad that my quest for the historical information has not been fulfilled

We were invited for a 2 night wedding (and therefore I can't comment about the price). The place is most elegant and beautifully restored and preserved. The room is huge! it is remote enough from the city and quite.

Lovely setting in an old monastery
Not as quiet as I would have liked.
Hotel is used for various functions with very noisy guests
Add it that dogs that bark all night
Hotel staff for the most part very friendly
Breakfast good and plentiful
Must have a car
