I have to apologise - this review is about hotel restaurant ( which is often overlooked ), rather than hotel itself.

I had a business lunch there and was very impressed by quality of food and service. Staff was very friendly and attending , the food was perfect - I would challenge you to find a better "borsch" anywhere in Odessa - and setting was beautiful with a sea view to die for.

It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the visit if you are looking for a quiet place and perfect meal.

My business partner stayed at the hotel and was impressed with his room, but would leave up to him to write a review

I travel the backpacker route with somewhat more resources and sometimes I need a vacation from vacation. I got to Odessa at the end of a heat wave and decided I needed a beach/pool break. Wasn't sure about the beach options but the pictures of the rooms and pool at La Giaconda were lovely and the price was reasonable

Omg- what a beautiful place! Room was wonderful and hotel grounds were just stunning which made for both a good and bad part of the stay. It seems many couples use the hotel grounds for wedding photos- and they take HOURS of wedding photos in Odessa. One day there were 2 different drones. While the hours of photography were only mildly intrusive to my relaxing by the beautiful little pool, the droning of the drones was extremely annoying.

The beach is 5 minutes away- but straight down (which was fine) and straight up to return (which wasn't).

The staff was excellent and really went out of their way. On the one hand I find this much attention overbearing but I do appreciate that this is what they are supposed to do. There was a little glitch over the check one evening but the staff was so mortified that I felt I should apologize to them and they more than made up for it.

Buffet breakfast was definitely the loveliest I've seen in the past month of traveling in the Baltics.

Finally- many thanks to the receptionist (I think her name was Anna or Irna- she will know who she is) who made my bus reservation to Chisinau. The website would not take my American credit card. She called her father to have him put money on her card so that she could pay and I paid her. I hope this does not embarrass her. I tell the story because it was service above and beyond the call of duty and hotel service just doesn't get any better!

Highly recommended hotel.

I came for shipbroker's annual meeting and stayed 4 nights.

a very peaceful hotel, wonderful ambiance, the people, the rooms, the garden ... very helpful and always kind.

Excellent food ...

I was the only one of my group staying in this hotel. When they picked me up at the hotel, all was so amazed. Wonderful nature and seaview.

Next year they will join me for sure.

Room Tip: just ask ... reception is very helpful
