Bottom Line

Built in 2011, the Vespucci is a modern, upper-middle-range hotel with 28 stylish rooms less than a 10-minute walk from the ocean and center of Porto Cesareo. The hotel should suit both leisure and business travelers, since it's open year-round and has free Wi-Fi and a classy restaurant. There’s no pool at the hotel, but there is a large garden where guests can relax, and a swing set and merry-go-round for children. Guests willing to stay farther away from Porto Cesareo may want to check out Le Dune Suite Hotel, which has a private beach and a swimming pool.

Oyster Hotel Review

Vespucci Hotel


Modern three-story hotel with classy restaurant and large garden

Guest rooms with glass doors opening onto balconies make up the top two floors of this modern, three-story hotel. Outside, olive trees dot the large garden area, where guests can relax in brown wicker armchairs arranged around a glass table, and a wooden swing set and red merry-go-round offer children a place to play. Inside, light filters through the long curtains creating a soft glimmer in the chic, white lobby. The classy restaurant is bright with large windows and sleek white tables, and the bar area has a glass case displaying cigars for sale.
