“Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Capo Vaticano simply the paradise. The hotel is nice with friendly staff and with ultralight italian breakfast. The beach is 10mins. wonderfool with a nice bar. The hotel is 50m over the see. Walking back to the hotel burns a lot of calories. Tropea is 10mins by car and there is a supemarket 2mins by car to the hotel.July 2013

Our friends booked the Damanse for their summer vacation and We decided to joined them for two weeks stay in July. I was concerned about the location (too faraway from Tropea, no direct access to the sea, on the main road) but the price was very affordable!!! Trust us it is not just the price: the hotel is nice clean and the owners and staff are delicious and super-friendly. The outside of the hotel with the swimming pool is really beautiful and comfy. The beach is 5 minutes walk from the hotel and the main road is not so congested as you may think!!!! You may go to Tropea in 5 minutes by car. The sea in this area is really wonderful!!!! The food at the restaurant is very nice, fresh and diversified during the week (The onion FRITTATA and the onion Pizza are a must!!!!!). The staff was very helpful and they were very nice with our little daughter. We had a fantastic experience and hope to be again a client in the future!!! Thanks a lot to the owners for the beautiful experience.

Although we didn't stay at this hotel we went to have dinner there on July 20,2012. The staff was friendly and we got quick service. The restaurant was clean and the food was good. There was a couple complaining that the food they ordered wasn't to their liking and the staff did their best to correct the issue. It is located right off a main road close to the sea.

This is our 3rd visit to Tropea and this time we decided to stay just outside the Town. We selected this Hotel on a Bed and Breakfast basis due to good reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disapointed.
The Hotel is lovely with a large pool and more than enough sun loungers for all, rooms are spotlessly clean with views of the sea or pool and all our towels were changed every day.
Very nice Restaurant where you can sit outside with Pasta, Pizza and Meat dishes. 100% Italian clientele while we wer there, all mostly on a half or full board basis.
10 minute drive into Tropea or just a 2 minute drive to Torre Marina beach which we used frequently. The hotel is family run with lovely gardens and a friendly laid back attitude. If you require a well run Hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Tropea at a very moderate cost then this is the place for you!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2009

In the summer of 2009 I and my wife decided to spend our vacation at the beautiful sea and beaches of southern Italy. We looked at Italy from the height of Google Earth and selected Tropea as having the best beaches, sea and places of interest. We looked around reviews of different hotels in that area and found out that Damanse has highest rated value for reasonable price. So we decided to go there and I have to say that we weren’t disappointed for a minute making such a decision.

Hotel is located not far from Tropea allowing you to have nice rest in countryside and in the same time just 5 minute driving and you are in the center of tourist life. You can also select a number of beaches - we went both on Torre Marino and Tropea beaches and liked them very much. But you must have a car.

The personnel of the hotel are very amiable and kind. Though they speak very little English and we don’t speak Italian we could find a way of understanding each other. The hotel has very nice restaurant. We enjoyed real Italian coffee for breakfasts and cold home made wine and tasty thin pizza from a wooden oven.

P.S - one of the enchanting impressions – a huge blue parrot at the Reception

We stayed at Hotel Damanse for a week and found it almost faultless. The grounds, pool and rooms were spotlessly clean at all times. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The excellent beach is a 5 minute walk down a hill. As other reviewers have said, I would recommend hiring a car for at least some of your stay. There are no shops within reasonable walking distance - the nearest are in San Domenica which was about a half hour walk, and that's on a road with no pavements, so not very safe. Tropea is a 5-10 minute drive away and is a lovely little town with lots of the usual tourist shops and another good beach.
We found the staff at Damanse to be very helpful, especially the manager Vincenzo - anything you need arranging ie a hire car being dropped off, he won't hesitate to do for you. His wife was also very nice, and always tried to understand our very poor attempts at speaking Italian so she could help us.
Do not go to this area without a phrasebook, you will struggle! Hardly anyone speaks any English. We personally found it quite refreshing to stay somewhere that actually felt like a foreign country as opposed to a tacky beach front where you can order a fry up in English and never learn a word of the native language. There were not many English tourists here at all, a few Germans and lots of Italians from further north. Apparently it gets very busy in July and August, September was great for us though, nice and quiet and still very hot every day.

  • Liked — All of it!
  • Disliked — Not much to do that is walking distance
