Stayed for a five nights with a small baby in July 2013. Very nice, quiet rooms with all proper amenities, accurate and delicate cleaning every day, towels and bathrobe are comfortable. Beach is 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel, a lot of good restaurants within the same distance. Nice breakfasts, but the same every day. The hotel has its own restaurant with nice fresh food but a bit expensive. Staff is friendly and helpful. If you need a transport, please check ahead with the reception as there might be some problems with availability.

We took the ferry from Messina around mid-day and started a pleasant ride through the countryside. This hotel was easy to find and well appointed for an overnight stay. Very clean, nice bathroom, and very quiet room. We enjoyed a good dinner with our friends, and a very nice breakfast. We did find the room itself small (but we were travelling with motorcycle gear, which takes up a lot of space). The staff was very nice and helpful throughout our stay.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a balcony just to enjoy the air!

I spent 2 weeks for business trip .. This 4-star hotel was recommended by our partner in Vibo .. The hotel is around 30min from Lamezia airport and it cost around 50Euro .. The breakfast was nice but I think there should be an alternative .. The staff was helpful .. There is sky TV .. The hotel is 30min from Tropea and 10min drive from Pizzo Calabro. In general very good

Room Tip: The rooms in the corners of each floor are bigger

Beautiful hotel 4star in Vibo Marina harbor, a natural site to visit Eolian Island, only 43 sea miles. Local attractions as Vibo Marina for beach and sea, Pizzo 4km for famous ice cream (tartufo), Tropea 25km and Cape Vatican for tourism on the fantastic sea.
In the hotel the famous "l'Approdo" restaurant with excellent fish, and "Approdocafè" for happy hours.

Stayed in this hotel 4 nights on a business trip with a group. The local counterparts had booked the hotel with signifcant discount off the rack rates on the hotel web site.

The hotel is located on a quiet street close to the port and the beach. The lobby was spacy and well appointed. There was TV with Sky Sport in the day bar so we were able to see the games we wanted.

The room was smallish, felt crowded and it was rather hot in the room as well. It turned out the AC was off as the hotel was almost empty out of season. It was still rather hot during the day, but opening windows largely solved the problem for the night. The large bed was comfortable. The bathroom had all required amenities.

The flat TV had mostly Italian channels. The Internet was working OK.

The breakfast lacked vegetables and choice of juices and we had to resort to croissants and sweets. The coffee was excellent as one would expect in Italy.

We had dinner once in the acclaimed L'Approdo restaurant in the hotel. The food was good, but overpriced vcompared to other local places. I would recommend Charcoal grilled kid goat. We ate mostly outside and I can recommend the Pedro Trattoria with excellent food and good service at reasonable prices.

The staff was helpful and tried to assist us in every way, but obviously it was beyond their authority to get AC turned on.

The hotel offered a reasonably priced transfer by minibus to the St. Euphemia Airport.
