I had originally booked 2 nights here on my way down south in Calabria, but due to some "actions" by Italian train personell many trains were cancelled so I arrived 20 hours late. I did manage to send a message through the booking.com system, and the hotel had kindly rebooked me so that I didn't even have to pay for... More

Let me start by saying that this is not the most up to date hotel that I have stayed in but turned out to be perfect for our group. Eight of us had travelled to Scalea for the Peperoncino(chilli) Festival held in nearby Diamante. One of our group(Becky)has an apartment in the village and before it is renovated stays here...

One of the problems with writing this review is that I've already been in better, which to a degree, taints it. There's nothing wrong with the hotel at all - it's clean, functional, and sits in a good position on the road - very central within the town itself. It has an unheated swimming pool, and the breakfast there is... More

We stopped here on our way south,we booked this hotel because it was on the beach and had a lovely swimming pool much larger then most,well equipped with chairs and shaded area. Our room faced the beach,with a nice balcony,the scenery was lovely. The town really did not have much... More

We stayed here one night having found it by accident as we drove down the Italian coast. The town is a pleasant beach town. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful and since it was off-season, reasonable. The breakfast was good, rooms clean and we had one with a view of the Med. They have a beautiful pool area...

Absolutely good hotel throughout. Feels like 4 stars, priced as 3. Ask for seaview room, you will be amazed. Pool comes very handy. 100% recommended.
