My family stayed here approximately a year ago and I am finally writing my humble review... The Gabbiano was beyond our expectations.. We do not speak Italian but, that was not a problem. The staff (which many are family, since it is family-owned) was more than friendly and accomodating. The grounds and the rooms are beautiful and meticulous. If we... More

Villaggio Il Gabbiano is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in Calabria with a gorgeous (slightly pebbly, gritty) white beach. The water is stunningly clear and very safe , also for kids. There is a dive school, motor boat rental and kayak rental. The "village" is a collection of appartments located in nicely built white houses... More

This was my second time around staying at this beautiful resort. First time was in 2008. We stayed in a room at the bottom of the hill, literally beside the pool, and just steps away from the beach. The only issue I have is, they have put so much effort and money into the resort itself (scenerey, bar, beach etc.)... More

This is an amazing place. You will be able to enjoy the comfort of a holiday in a serviced Holiday Village, but without the hassle of the crowd. The beach is beautiful, the sea turqouise, the garden is lusciuos and well tended to, the food is fresh and served under little rod-iron gazebos under the palm-trees, the service is professional...

We were in this beautiful Village by the sea in 2008 and have been dreaming of returning ever since. The staff is excellent, the food very good, the morning cappuccino by the pool sublime. It's right on the sea with a beautiful, long, sandy shoreline with crystal clear water. The pool is heated and saltwater and a good size. They... More

I spent my two last nights in Calabria at Gabbiano. I can only say the best. The personal is perfect. Big thank to Carlo, Domenico, Michela, Mimmo, Albino and every one there. Room was clean, comfortable. Food in main restaurant is just excellente. One does not have to look for another place to stay on Capo Vaticano.

Just spent a third holiday at this resort - really something quite unique to the British traveller! Just love it - very relaxed on a fantastic sandy beach, crystal clear waters and lovely grounds. In addition the on-site restaurant overlooking the sea serves wonderful food and the pizzas are some of the beast I have tasted. In addition you can... More

For the third time (2006/2007/2008) I spent a two weeks holiday together with my kids (4 and 6) and my parents down in wonderful Calabria and I would always return. I confirm that all the pictures represented on the official web site of this venue are are as-is! No fake is needed at all. Area: Clean and very well maintained.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a two week stay here on a beautiful, clean sandy beach looking out to Stromboli and Sicily. This is a four star property, beautifully kept with excellent, friendly staff, a couple of whom speak good English. Other guests almost all Italian families who seem to return annually! We were made to feel very welcome by everyone - although... More
