Best family hotel on the Adriatic coast

If you want to relax and enjoy the Italian lifestyle this is the hotel to go.
Your kids will be pampered and greeted welcome together with you.

I can recommend to have either half or full board, food at excelsior is Italian food when it's best and so is the service.

Room are simple and CLEAN, all you need for a stay at Cervia that offers a lot of interesting destinations within a few hours of driving.
I recommend you either drive your own car or rent one to get around.

If you play golf there is plenty to offer as well.

Excelsior is my favourite hotel in Italy, here I can relax and enjoy Italy when it's best.

Stayed: June 2016, travelled with family

We say location, location, location but without a good staff a good location isn't worth much. I have travelled to many places in Italy and spent countless nights and of all the places in Italy I have stayed at, no staff was more caring and professional then the staff working at the Excelsior.
Very reasonable priced, great food and cozy bar. Pool has retractable veranda like roof and the hotel also has a sauna.
Very clean rooms, which are better than other 3 star hotels in Italy.
The staff was truly friendly and great.

You always feel welcome at this hotel, the service was just as excellent as last time. (This was the second time we stayed at this hotel – a family of 4). We went waterskiing at a nearby lake (see: waterskiitaly.com), just 8-10 min from the hotel (waterskiitaly.com) – it as always good fun. We also enjoyed Cervia and you can find some very nice small cities within 30-45 min. drive.

A large majority of the hotels in Cervia had closed for the Winter when we arrived (19th Sept) but Hotel Excelsior was still busy with guests arriving all the time we were there (one week ) which is no surprise as this hotel is a little gem. All the staff give a friendly service and the location is ideal. It is in a residential area just a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the old town where the cathedral is located.
Ask for a room on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and you will be able to see the sea - the hotel isn't directly on the seafront but you can still see it.
The rooms are a very good size for Italy - fairly basic but very adequate. Our large double bed was a bit uncomfortable - a nice firm mattress but very lumpy. The balconies are very small. We had a triple wardrobe with lots of hangers, separate drawers and hooks around the room and in the bathroom.
We only ate breakfast here which catered for all tastes (fruit, yoghurt, breads, toaster, coffee machine, fruit juice machine, cheese, meats, cereals, cakes, croissant, jams, boiled egg) and it was very very good. Lots of people ate lunch and dinner here too and had a smile on their faces and it smelt delicious!
The pool is a good size and has a moveable cover over it which allows swimming in all weathers. The sauna and steam room located next to the pool is open 4.30pm - 6.30pm each day. Our only criticism of the pool area are the beds which do not have cushions so are not the most comfortable but we noticed all the beds in the area seem to be like this (on the beach/at other hotels). They had sunshades above your head which could be tilted as desired - very useful. Towels were plentiful and clean.
We definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor overlooking the pool if you want to see the sea.

The take you as well to a great golf place. One block from EL MARE . I will be back .

Room Tip: Great for family, they have a great swimming pull and one block from the beach. Room toward the beach and higher floor I prefer
