Beautiful Property, Food and Service
The Verdura Resort is a beautiful property. It has everything: a golf course, bike trails, pools, beach, and an excellent restaurant. The rooms were so well-appointed with everything that you would hope for. The staff went out of their way to assist you in every way possible. We were only there one night and would like to come back again.
Great resort with excellent service
We visited this resort in September for the first time. The hotel is well designed over a large area, so doesn’t feel cramped. We loved the fact that there were free bikes for general use to get around the resort. The service ethics of all of the staff was exceptional, which is what you expect from Rocco Forte hotels. The only minor drawbacks of this resort are the lack of places to visit nearby and the fact that the golfs courses are not the greatest / a bit boring with a lot of 400+ yard holes very much like the last one.
End of season still running strong
We visited the very end of the season for two days of golf, we enjoyed our stay so much we extended to play golf on four days. The staff was not burned out at the end of the long sason, every station wether bar, restaurants, recption, driver, concierge, receptionists,cady master,green keepers, room maintenance or spa staff everyone gave its best and lived the spirit of RF. The food was excellent, breakfast the best we ever encountered in Italy, the golf course well maintained with superior greens. Our oceanfront suite was excellent. There are no minuses - you might name the price - yet consider the qualities you get. The reconstruction of the crippled golf corse will add quality also in this field we will be back after its reopening 2020.
Out of Season Visit
Overall 5 star hotel, service and setting. Staff all highly professional, polite and go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Only two minor complaints - the limited choice of meals if visiting out of season, and the 'free' internet service is unusable (my 3G phone was faster) - so opt for the paid internet service.
Ruinously expensive but worth it for family relaxation
We booked this place at the end of our Sicily trip for 4 nights lured in by the promise of the Kids Club creche which meant we'd be able to have some couple time, hurrah! Tackling the big downside first...it is ruinously expensive for those of us paying in pounds (which may explain the abundance of Germans and Americans, and paucity of Brits!) and you're a captive audience so charges are high even for things that are cheap as chips in Italy like gelato and pasta; consider that a bottle of water will set you back EUR6 (please, Verdura, provide filtered water for free, you're a luxury resort, you can do it!), the creche service is EUR20 an hour, cocktails start around EUR16 etc. If you can get over that or money is no object, here's the upsides... 1) Our room (the most basic) was absolutely huge, with great view, walk in wardrobe, giant bathroom and plenty of room for cot 2) the SPA is UNBELIEVABLE! Probably the biggest hammam steam room I've ever seen, 4 outdoor thalassotherapy pools, indoor pool, steam rooms etc and this is all free for guests to use so make the most of it 3) the Kids Club was fab with absolutely wonderful, friendly, competent staff, and it provides a nice space for the little ones to stay and play (either with you or without you, for a fee for under 3s), which seems to be a rare thing if you're travelling with small children. So, overall worth it, but comes at a price!
