We stayed at this hotel for five nights at the beginning of September, having booked a "suite" through a Southern Italy specialist travel agency in the UK. The "suite" was really just a generous size room with balcony. Bizarrely there is a large open hole in the wall between the bathroom and bedroom so everything that goes on in the... More

After reading the reviews for this hotel I knew what to expect and, coming prepared, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We love the sea... being near the sea, in the sea and hearing and smelling the sea! We were a family of 5, 3 children aged 5, 8, 16 ... and we had 2 rooms on the ground floor with a... More

We were a bit wary about booking this location based on reviews, but were pleasantly surprised. The location in not really Briatico, but not uncommon in the Italian seaside areas - but the beach was spectacular! We were met at reception by Mr. Biagio, who was very friendly. Our room was Huge, clean & modern with outdoor terrace on 2nd... More

In a way it is true what somebody wrote before – the hotel is really in the middle of the nowhere. But it is beautiful and everything looks new and well maintained, the close neighbourhood is clean and the complex gives a feeling of harmony. Something which cannot be said about some even more expensive hotels we have visited in... More

We were welcomed by a very friendly manager and receptionist who provided us with maps, restaurant recommendations and a brief description of the local area. As the headline suggests, a car is essential when staying at Lido San Giuseppe. The road (loosely defined!) down to the reception area is very steep but don't let that put you off as there... More

This is probably the worst vacation I've ever been on, period! The hotel itself is stunning, nice swimming pool (although the bar was never open). Hot weather, nice water... but then when it comes to the customer service it is beyond appalling! The omnipresent owners are rude and shouted to me and my friend despite knowing no English at all....

It felt like a prison, isolated and so many rules to attend to! They try to cheat you all the time, offer dinner at arrival like its mandatory, but it is not included! If you put a foot on their beach, they charge 10€ per night, not per day, and you cant check in until 17 and have to check... More

We love this beautiful beach hotel. We have come back several times and look forward to coming back every year and bringing back more family to enjoy the experience. The owners and their staff are so wonderful and pleasant. Our children love it too. Everyone is helpful, kind and accommodating and happy to give their English a try. Communicating was... More

My wife, daughter (4 years old), and I (3 year veterans of Italian cultural) spent 4 nights at this hotel in June 2011. It was supposed to be five, but we checked out early (read below). Lido San Giuseppe is set in a picture perfect location along the Calabrian coast. The sun is warm and the water is clear. The... More
