We booked into Venosa beach after being told by TUI that it was a five star resort with fantastic amenities. TUI lied. Let me start with the WIFI, it's 2017 why is their only WIFI available in the lobby that barely works? The alcohol they serve is cheap and bar staff can't make any of the cocktails on the menu which is in dire need of an update. The food in the buffet is okay but it's the same thing every single day - after three days you're bored of it. However, you do receive a free visit to one of the a la carte restaurants during your stay - we chose Mexican after being told by other guests that the Italian and Turkish restaurants are terrible. It's safe to say that the chef who cooked our Mexican meal couldn't even point Mexico out on a map. Bland and basic. I've seen better with an Old El Paso fajita mix. You're also served bean sprouts and sweet corn as one of the courses - apparently that's what they eat in Mexico. The decor in the restaurant is terrible but then again I'm not a fan of bright yellow walls and cheap plastic masks hanging off them. The beach isn't that great. The entertainment staff are fun but a little bit innappropriate and the music they play is wholly innappropriate if you are staying In the hotel with children. The evening entertainment is dance show after dance show and a circus act where a woman girates on a live snake that looks as if it has been drugged (I was tempted to call animal welfare.) The saving grace of the hotel was the spa - fantastic service and great prices. I would definitely recommend the Turkish bath. The gym however could do with a clean and maybe someone could Febreze it once in a while? Wouldn't come back again.
