Quite possibly the best location in Tropea, next door to the steps down to the beach and only metres away from the old town with its variety of lovely shops and restaurants. Domenico and his two brothers are providing a level of hospitality and kindness very rarely seen these days in hotels and nothing is too much trouble for them.... More

This hotel has a 3 star rating but actually is hardly a 2 star! It is run by a family and they need to up their game! Location is good but that's about all! Bed was bad, sheets had a hole in, toilet seat is plastic and the aircon did not work well at all. The wi fi is good.... More

I have been in Tropea two times before, in different hotels - but this is by far the best! We drove from Palermo, and the hotel was easy to find -witch is a plus. Tropea is a beautiful town - and by staying at Hotel La Porta del Mare you are close to everything - the ocean, the city, restaurants,... More

My friend booked this hotel in Tropea, our first time to this beautiful town. Upon our arrival at Hotel La Porta Del Mare, a staff took us up to our hotel room which was a wonderful surprise - it was a room on the top floor with the window overlooking the balcony (where you would have breakfast) so our view...

We came across this hotel by accident, it had parking out the front, and when we went to inspect the room and the manager opened the window and blind and the colour of the blue sky and sea flooded in. We were sold. The room was spotless and the bed was a true queen size bed, not just two singles... More

What a splendid location this hotel has: the hubbub of Tropea's historic centre is only a few minutes away (on foot of course, this lovely small town is meant for walking), the steps to the glorious beach are literally around the corner, and then there's the terrace with that breathtaking view.....ah! The hotel offers a surprisingly nice breakfast (compared to... More

Arrived by taxi from tropea train station the hotel is on the tacky ugly it was like a third world country outskirts of centro storico. Who are the owners trying to kid? On arriving the receptionist had to help carry our luggage up a long flight of stairs. Taken to our room, on opening the door the small narrow entry... More

I have nothing negative to say about my stay at this hotel. The rooms were quite standard, however, our two rooms offered splendid views over the wonderful coastline Tropea has to offer. And oh, the roof top terrace.. My god, I've never indulged breakfast whilst gazing over such a beautiful turquoise shore with the well-known church shining with all its... More

The view from the terrace was amazing, but that didn't make up for the big cockroach we found in our room, the smell of mould, the two day-old pastries at the breakfast and the poor cleaning. The staff were sweet but we would not choose this hotel again.
