It was such a great pleasure to have you and your children at the Doge last summer and we really hope to see you again.
We're so happy you all enjoyed your stay and all the facilities our hotel has to offer.
Thanks a lot for your enthusiastic review, it's important for us that our guests are glad with their choice!
Paola, Mauro e the staff
This hotel is a little gem in the heart of the Adriatic Coast. Travelling with a little dog they have been accommodating since the beginning. Nothing is too much from the receptionist to the wonderful service we received. Betty she is the real sparkling deal here, her smile made every single of us welcome and like a home. The food is well prepared and very good. We would definitely recommend this hotel especially if you are on a family holiday. Well done to the entire team, looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Paola, Mauro & the Doge team
My wife and I and our children aged 6 and 3 stayed at the Hotel Doge on a full board basis for a week at the end of June 2008.
As previously mentioned in other reviews of the Abruzzo region you won't find many English people in this area of Italy. In fact we were the only English people in the Hotel however the staff could not have been more accomodating and helpful. The Hotel is excellent and the staff from the cleaner to the owners were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.
Food is superb with 3 or 4 meal choices each day. Local produce is always utilised and freshly cooked each day with excellent soups and superb salads at lunchtimes.
Don't underestimate the lunch menu. We left the beach on the first day expecting to have a sandwich or snack. Lunch however is 4 courses to the same standard as the evening meal. We know now why everyone has a sleep in the afternoons!
The week we stayed the weather was I understand exceptional even for this part of Italy (up to 36 degrees most days) so it's worth paying the minor extra for air conditioning.
The beach is beautiful, safe and kept very clean.
As an Italian Hotel it is not unsurprisingly geared towards families and parents should have no fears regarding keeping their children occupied at any time of the day. The Hotel has a full time kids club/entertainment team whose enthusiasm is never ending and they work like trojans from first thing in the morning until late at night organising beach activities and entertainment in the Hotel in the evenings.
The restaurant staff are very efficient and work exceptionally hard in providing a great service. Rita who looked after us all week (and is responsible for the diet we are now all on) deserves a special mention.
Our room and the rest of the Hotel was spotlessly cleaned everyday. Even the swimming pool was cleaned twice a day.
I never thought I was a beach holiday person but after my visit to Hotel Doge I would have to change that view. We got fully immersed in the Italian culture (food, language, siesta, going out after dinner and taking the children etc).
Drinks and other sundry items at the Hotel are also very reasonably priced and my bill at the end of the week was pleasantly surprising with wines, beers and bottled water all sensibly priced.
The Hotel is rated 3 star but I would put service at 4-5 star.
We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, especially to families, and we look forward to our next visit.
