Reviewed 26 August 2014

We spent 4 nights in June here for my sister's wedding and it was absolutely amazing. I work in the travel industry and I can't say enough about this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is very close to the center of Tropea. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the pool was fantastic, and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty. My whole family stayed here and everyone absolutely loved it. They also did a phenomenal job on her wedding-it was like a fairy tale! Every detail was planned perfectly and the food was out of this world. If you are thinking of a vacation in the area, I highly recommend this property and if you are thinking of getting married in this area, I highly recommend it as well!

The hotel had great reviews. So we went there and can confirm that reality corresponds with the comments stated by previous guests. Nice and helpful staff, rich breakfast buffet (including great Italian coffee). VERY clean rooms and all other premises including the pool. No rush. Beach in walking distance about 500m, you have to go down but it is everywhere in this area. However beach clean, quiet, suprisingly not overcrowded with people, clean sea, sometimes a bit wavy.Hotel situated in a nice garden. About 1km to Tropea - a lovely small town with many possibilities of having dinner or snack or just walking around. Visit Capo Vaticano or Sicilia. For us a long way to get to Parghelia (almost 2000km by car) but definitely worthy it. One of our greatest holidays. May come back one day.....

Room Tip: choose top floor to have a good sea view.

We have just spent a week in this excellent hotel. This was our first visit to the area and we have completely fallen in love with it. The accommodation was excellent but if you want a room with a sea view you will have to book very early in the year. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. There is a shuttle bus service to and from the beach during the day and then to and from Tropea in the evening- this is a real bonus. The pool area is immaculate and very restful, no loud music blaring out! Plenty of sun loungers throughout the day. The pool bar is open until midnight and is staffed on a daily basis by the delightful Tiziana, this young woman is always ready with a smile and a chat. If you are lucky enough to stay at this hotel, it will not disappoint!

Room Tip: Book in January for a sea facing room

Unfortunately, we only stayed here for three nights. Wish it could have been more. The hotel is on the edge of Parghelia village on a cliff above the sea. The beach is a ten minute walk away (twenty minutes coming back up the hill) and hotel guests have free use of loungers and a parasol. There is a free courtesy bus provided but we didn't use it. Our room was on the ground floor. No sea view,but facing a small paved area which kept it cool and secluded. The room and the public areas were spotlessly clean. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. For a quiet few days in the sunshine this could not be beaten. The only minor downside was the erratic wifi connection.

Room Tip: The upper rooms facing the sea have a better view but they also overlook the pool so might be noisie...

The hotel is really well located, at 3 km from Tropea. You can go by foot but I would recommand the car as the way to come back to the hotel is climbing quite substantialy. All the staff is very nice (special mention to Tiziana, Giuseppe and Daniele !). The hotel and its surroundings (pool, gardens...) are very clean. Bed is good. The private parking was much appreciated. Breakfast is great (eggs, fresh breads and pastries, fruits...), which is not always the case in Italy in general. We would go back to this hotel without any doubts !
