Wonderful new apartment steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at the Porto Badisco apartment in the Marimar building this summer. We were warmly greeted right at our arrival and oriented with the apartment as well as the area. Its extremely clean and modern, with great air conditioning for the very hot summers and a huge patio in the back. With it being so very close to the main city beach in Otranto, we were easily able to walk back and forth during the day, returning for lunch or just to rest before the evening passeggiata. A great apartment for families!

Praticamente quasi perfetta !!!

  • 4 of 5

Otranto: residence Marimar, casa PortoBadisco.

Residence perfetto, nuovo e centrale in Otranto, solo la distanza dal mare impone di andare sulla riviera di Alimini in quanto il lido piu' vicino Camillo ha prezzi esagerati ed offre poco. Ma il viaggio tutte le mattine val la pena di sicuro.

L'appartamento era tra i piu' funzionali mai provati, la proprietaria Annalisa gentilissima, bravissima, disponibile , insomma perfetta ! Volendo porsi come meta la perfezione, visto che c'erano le Olimpiadi in quei giorni, un piccolo neo è stata la TV che proprio in quel residence ha problemi di ricezione del digitale terrestre, suggerirei di installare una parabola come in tutto il resto di Otranto .. altra cosa è mettere alcuni appendini un po' in tutte le stanze e nel bagno perchè al momento mancano e sono necessari.

TERRAZZA perfetta , bellissima e funzionale, forse solo mancante di un attacco di acqua per poterla manutenere bene durante il soggiorno ... per il resto appartamento e soggiorno perfetto, razie ancora alla gentilissima Annalisa, ci vediamo !! Marcella
