Giulianova Lido is the Spa area of one of the villages of the Italian Adriatic best prepared for enjoyment and the Grand Hotel Don Juan is probably the classic reference destiny. On the beach and surrounded by gardens we can go from the lawn onto the sand, where an impeccable row of deck chairs and parasols offers an atmosphere of superior quality unlike other overcrowded areas of the European Mediterranean. The hotel is modern and has all the services and is perfect for traveling with your couple or family. Out of swimming season it is perfect for enjoying walks along the kilometers of beachfront and to discover the Abruzzo region which has beautiful inland villages. We love breakfast time on the terrace, with views over the sea, the swimming pool and the gardens. It is also lovely going for a beautiful walk in the historical village center.
All of the hotel is Wheel chair accessible, and on the beach it has a water tricycle to offer its clients with reduced mobility. In the hotel there are 4 rooms with bathrooms adapted to wheel chairs. Signage in Braille and relief by NATIVE-PUNTODIS around the hotel, multi-language door hangers in Braille, etc.
Everything the beach permits, which one could say is the best on this piece of coast with 13.000 square metre sof sand reserved for the hotel on which the parasols and the palm trees brought from Brasil, which create a very exotic atmosphere. A stoll though the old part of Giulianova is a usual entertainment. Discovering the region either by car or bus to the main surrounding towns
