Breakfast is the typical continental type, rolls cheese and ham etc. Dinner, a set menu with a choice of three starters, three mains and two deserts. If this was not to your liking you were able at no extra charge to choose other dishes. The pools are always clean and not used in the evening. Three lounge areas are available for guests to use. At all times the service was very good.
Harrys hotel is three star and value for money!

Hotel tip: If you want to Visit Venice go to the tabac across form Harry's and buy the 26 Euro ticket. It allows travel on the bus and ferry and unlimited use on the vapporeti in Venice.
We have stayed in many hotels and have to say this is one of the worst. We are not fussy but this hotel needs major refurbishment. We knew the rooms were small and didn’t mind that, we don’t spend much time in our room when we are holiday. However, the mattresses on the bed need changing. They were very lumpy and if you’re over ten stone you will definitely feel it, waking with a bad back every morning is not great.
They charge you for air con which we didn’t have. They also charge you 20 euro for a key for the fridge, the TV remote and safe deposit box. You cannot get much in the safe deposit box, but it suffices. The TV is a joke. They promote satellite but the only channel in English is Eurosport. The fridge is quite small so if like us you like to buy some booze of your own for the room you have to be careful what you are buying as most stuff won’t fit in. The walls are paper thin in the rooms and we heard next door every morning up for their showers at 7.15 am. It was like being in a caravan with hail pelting down on the roof. We could also hear the continual buzz of air conditioning from other people that were using it at night which was a pain. The road alongside was busy even though we had a pool view.
The owners son and friends decided to take later than midnight swims which we could hear when we were trying to sleep. This son is around 35 so you would think he would know better. We never saw the pool area cleaned once. Usually sunbeds are straightened area washed down, pool cleaned etc. We never saw this happen once. Only ash trays emptied by the cleaners who cleaned the hotel. Not enough sun beds and area for sunbathing cramped and a large area in the shade.
The communal areas also needed up-dated, being very old fashioned. It looked like the owners tossed out furniture from their places had all been transferred to the hotel. On our landing there was some conservatory furniture that had seen better days and looked like it had come from a garage sale that someone didn’t want. The owners also use the hotel as a cafe come bar and are more concerned with making money from this than pleasing their guests.
Now we come to the food. Oh my goodness. I was so looking forward to Italian food as was told it was lovely and the coffee. The dining room is like a staff canteen. Crammed in tables and chairs and you are sitting on top of one another. They have the actual salt and pepper pop in the container you buy them in on the table and a huge bottle of vinegar for everyone about the size of a bottle of wine. The starters are mainly pasta based which were ok - just. The mains were a joke. Steak that had been bashed to death to make it bigger and overcooked - well done - it was charcoaled. It was either unseasoned or over seasoned. Chips (mcdonalds type - full with oil) or what they call roast potato. My goodness it was awful. I had pizza on the last night and I have had better frozen ones. The outside was as hard as iron, the middle soggy and undercooked. If you went in at 8pm for dinner by 8.30pm (they serve 7.00 till 8.30) they switch off the air con and it becomes unbearable. Also they run out of desserts so you are left with an orange or ice cream. Breakfast is either ham and cheese a roll some cereal horrible watered down orange juice, watery scrambled egg or boiled eggs that are cold. The bread for toast is stale and left from the night before and covered over with plastic bag. You will not get anything cooked like bacon or sausage unless you pay for it. My husband is a coffee drinker but had one cup and could not stomach another one all holiday. It was horrible, diluted down and left in an urn all morning. The cutlery is unclean. We ordered wine a couple of nights and my wine glass had lipstick all over it.
People harp on about the family and how nice they are. To me they allow this to cloud their judgement of their holiday. The family are in this to make money that’s all. They need to spend some serious money on their hotel to bring it up to a good standard. They overcharge for drinks and food purchased. If you sit in their bar area at night prepared to be bitten to death by the mozzys. They have really bright lights which attract them and we only got bitten badly here. One girl was so badly bitten she bought some spray for her room. The owner told her she couldn’t spray it because it would set off the fire alarm. I sprayed my room every night. To my amazement people do appear to return each year because they like the family. I spoke to some who had come for a second time, but said they wouldn’t be coming again.
This is at best a 2 star hotel the food is one star. I would rather have a week in Blackpool that visit this hotel again. I hope this review is helpful. I always look on this site and a few others before I make my decision but unfortunately was swayed by other people’s posts who obviously like the family more than a good comfortable holiday
The rooms although small and basic were clean, the food was good - varied and always freshly cooked and the staff were excellent. They couldn't do enough for us and were fantastic with our two young daughters.
I would highly recommend this hotel and Lido di Jesolo although watch out for the mosquitos

The main meal in the evening was quite good, but the breakfast was awful, hardly any choice and if more than 5 people were trying to get breakfast at the same time it was chaos because there was no room to move.
The tables were squashed together, so no privacy, also the condiments on the table were the large tubs of salt and large bottles of vinegar that you would buy from the supermarket to top up your smaller bottles/shaker.
The pool was quite nice but the pool area was small so we found ourselves constantly being splashed with water form people 'playing' in the pool. We found this very irritating.
The hotel location was at the end of the main drag so you only really had one direction in which to walk.
However, it was very close to the beach as are all the hotels.
The staff were polite.

The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are clean but are small and compact.The food is good , you choose what you want for dinner a night in advance and there is a choice.
The swimming pool is small but the beach is across the road and every hotel has their own designated beach area with free sun loungers.
Try one of the hotels ice cream sundaes delicious.
Lots of older people in hotel who stay there year after year.
If it is a small friendly run hotel you want then this fits the bill but it is three star so dont expect too much.
I would stay again.
