Very charming hotel, close to everything. Staff was great. Room was a little small (that's fairly normal in Europe) and was a bit dark, but it was very nicely appointed and functional. Great breakfast terrace and room. Very nice place to stay.
Located in the heart of Tropea, well-known tourist destination on Calabria coast and a few minutes walk from the beach …More
We visited with our children (aged 10 and 12) at the very end of October 2013, when most of Tropea (and Italy) is closing down its tourist facilities, so our comments relate to that period and we can't comment on what it is like in high season. We had a lovely time (lucky to have sunshine every day; 21-25 degrees) and really enjoyed the hotel as a base from which to explore Tropea and the surrounding region.
The location, just outside the old town, worked both for walking into town (10 mins down a gentle hill) and for (free) parking and exploring Capo Vaticano.
There's no real view to speak of but the pool is nice. We got a family room (108), booked on the internet, and had no idea what form that would take. It turned out to be excellent! One entrance onto a small hall, from which you access three rooms: a twin with bunk beds, a bathroom (shower, not bath) and a double room (two singles attached - gap hardly noticeable) with TV, off which there was a balcony. It meant you could put the kids to bed and then stay up without disturbing them, with assurance of their safety.
The hotel restaurant closed the night we arrived but there were plenty of good places to eat in the town. Good breakfast selection, but all self service (coffee from machines, pre-cooked bacon & scrambled eggs, fresh croissants, cereal, yoghurt, toast, cold meats & cheese). Nice facilities, friendly staff (some spoke English), very clean. Comfy beds. Recommend it!

I found the hotel to be very good service and good location but the appearance of the rooms from the outside really felt more like a hostel than a hotel. The stove didn't work (although we didn't really want to cook anyway).
The bathroom shower was really hard to negotiate because it was so tiny, but overall we enjoyed our stay and the staff were really friendly and accommodating.
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. After the drive up a very steep and windy road we were greeted by the resort. Our room looked out over the pool and the surrounding countryside, which was a great view to be greeted by on the terrace which we used morning and evenings. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful suggesting places to visit when the weather didn't allow you to sit around the pool to relax. The event staff tried to encourage you to join in daily in the activities on offer, although they were not intrusive. The food was excellent - there was a variety of fresh fruit, pastries, cheeses and ham for breakfast and the a la carte dishes we chose in the evening we were wonderful.
