The hotel facilities themselves are nothing special. We had a nice, clean but not particularly spacious room. But what really makes this place worth seeking out is the location. All the rooms have access to a terrace with absolutely stunning views. There is a little private area accessed from the room, with chairs and a table where it's lovely to... More

Lovely small hotel with the most unbelievable terrace views. Travelled with friends and we both had the only top floor bedrooms overlooking the terrace where a substantial breakfast was served. We also ate on the terrace one night, with one of the brothers showing his skill in the kitchen. 5 course meal was amazing and we luckily only had to... More

It is a simple hotel in the first floor of the building (no elevator), recently renovated, however the stuff is still learning how to receive/serve. Some of them were very nice, some of them weren´t... The location was very good, two blocks from the old town and "near" the beach (a lot of steps).

Domenico C, Direttore at Hotel La Porta Del Mare, responded to this review

Dear Madame, It 's very interesting your review. The simplicity is what nowadays is different from normal. It 's normal that there is not an elevato because it is one of the first palace built in Tropea since XVII. Thank you for saying what you did not like, because who is going to read it and then come to us,... More

Spent one night here in May and was a waste of travel time and money! You definitely do not get what you pay for here. Dated rooms, the bed super uncomfortable, smelly covers. And the breakfast is poor - cold boiled eggs and "tired" pastries. We stayed at a series of places along the coast between Rome and Sicily and... More

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...
