I come yearly with a tour group for a 12-day stay. Very welcoming hotel! Hotel was recently renovated. Rooms are very nice and clean. Hotel has a homey feel.

We have stayed at this resort several times. It is high class for southern italy but it's no Waldorf Astoria! You have to have an open mind about the furnishings and environment, but the people are warm and attentive (especially the outstanding wait staff!). The food is excellent. Overall this is a great place for a great price!

I spent 11 nights at this resort in Scalea Italy in Calabria with 120 others. We had a comfortable room that was well serviced. The food and service in the dining room were beyond expectation.

This was a fantastic hotel to stay at during our stay in Scalea. The staff were all very friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and everything was in a walkable distance. The resort was right on the beach and about a 10 minute walk from the train station. The food was pretty adequate.

Big hotel along the seashore of Scalea. Probably built in the early sixtees and never modernised. You could call that vintage or retro. Lot of things don't work like the elevator, blowdryer and WiFi for example. Room was spacious but along a very busy road, could not sleep without earplugs! Staff is helpfull but there was only one woman speaking... More

I was horrified to find out that you don't have designated NON SMOKING ROOMS. My visit in September was surprisingly tried to put us in a room filled with smoke smell. They did put us in another room that was acceptable but we immediately gave the ashtray that we found in the room to someone from the front desk. I... More

Elevator doesn't work. Bait and switch photos-they have a second building across the street, away from the beach. View is out on the main, busy street. Loud, beeping non-stop traffic. Why stay here? It is a layover for us on our way back to Rome airport. We thought we would have a view, if nothing else. Hah! Did I mention... More

This hotel is in a beautiful, but impoverished, part of Italy. The decor is dated and tired but the hotel is clean and has some good facilities.
