After my friend and I were slung off the train heading for Roma Termini (after discovering that buying an Intercity train ticket onboard would cost us an extra one hundred euros) we found ourselves abandoned on the platform under the burning sun, suitcase in hand, in Amantea. After asking a young boy if there were any local hotels, he pointed us to the Mediterraneo Palace Hotel. What I can say is, now I am glad for the broken journey and very happy to discover this hotel. Although I do speak Italian, all of the staff in the Reception area spoke English, and they were extremely helpful and very polite. Our room was modern and air conditioned, with a great shower. Another bonus is that in the basement there is a spa area, with an inside pool, turkish bath, small gym, and beauty treatments at a great price. The breakfast was varied, plentiful and of a good quality. The hotel also offers a transfer service from Lamezia airport for 40 euros. So, the next time I fly in with friends for a break, I will prebook my treatments that I spend a fortune for in London, we can all enjoy a spa day, then after dinner and a lovely breakfast we can head on to our destination. If all the service in Calabria was as good as this, they may find that their tourism would really start to grow. Congratulations need to be offered to this hotel in every aspect. The next morning after breakfast, we had a look around Amantea Centro Storico and then after lunch we were taken to the train station (via golf buggy). I looked at other residents there, and how well they were looked after, including a couple of older guests with disabilities. I will certainly come here again, and would recommend to anyone flying into Lamezia with a flight at an awkward time to take advantage of the facilities this hotel has to offer. Well done to you all, after our expulsion from the Intercity train, you made us smile again!
