Hotel run like a Concentration Camp

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, because of this you have to eat in their restaurant every night, and you can't eat before 8.00 at night because they are not ready. The staff are one big family, and they are very courteous and helpful. But that is where it stops. They run the hotel like a concentration camp with so many rules for the pool, you must be out by 12.30 midday and not back in until 4.00 pm, they all have there quiet time to have a sleep ( Siesta ), but then you must be out again at 7.00, we thought so everybody then gets ready for dinner. I made a mistake booking this hotel, I wish I had booked in Tropea, where at least there is a little happening. Thanks Neil and Joan Pritchard ( Australia )

Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo ed ottima posizione

Hotel a gestione prettamente familiare, assicurando, oltre alla professionalità, anche la cortesia e la disponibilità, sempre pronti a dispensare consigli utili per scoprire i posti unici che offre la zona. Posizione ottimale per visitare tutte le meravigliose spiagge tra Capo Vaticano, Ricadi e Tropea. Colazione abbondante e variegata, sia dolce che salata. Camere pulite, accoglienti, fornite anche di stendibiancheria e frigo. Presente anche una piscina, che è risultata sempre pulita nei giorni in cui abbiamo soggiornato, ed una sala fitness discretamente fornita per potersi anche tenersi in forma, anche se togliere del tempo alle spiagge, al cibo ed alle bellezze naturali del luogo è davvero uno spreco. Presente anche Wi-fi gratuito. A differenze di altri alberghi a 4 stelle della zona, che hanno deluso le nostre aspettative, quest ci ha proprio convinto, perchè con un prezzo davvero buono, ci ha offerto tutto quello che ci serviva, lasciandoci soddisfatti per la cortesia, la pulizia delle camere e la capacità di accogliere i propri ospiti con un sorriso.

Ottima struttura tenuta molto bene. Nota dolente il cibo che raggiunge appena la sufficenza.
