I have just returned from a trip with friends to Southern Italy and we stayed at this hotel. My two friends have been there before, but I had not. I can’t stress enough how lovely the owners are, they can’t do enough for you even though I speak no Italian (aided where necessary by our companion who could). The best... More

Spent one night at the hotel. Yes, it was November, not high season, the hotel was nearly empty yet open. There was limited amount of hot water, we had problems in opening the room (no battery), there was actually no breakfast, only coffee and heated croissants. In spite it all that they charged 100 euros. Perhaps in season they are... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for two relaxing weeks and had the best time soaking up the area of Calabria. We found the owner Rocco to be the most friendly and entertaining hotelier from our experience of travelling the world. The food was absolutely first class, due to the fact that most of the ingredients came... More

For my experience I highly recommend the Esperia Hotel. I couldn't fault it. The food is out of this world and everything you eat is fresh, including all the fruit and vegetables which are grown in its surrounded private property. The beach is only a stone throw away. The swimming pool is amazingly big and always spotless. My room had... More

Stayed for a week, everything was great. They grow all their own fruit and veg and serve it to you the day it is picked! The food, atmosphere and location is great. The staff are very friendly too! Id go back in a heartbeat.

Tiles and drywall falling apart in the hallway. Bird poo on balconies were never ever cleaned up. Free sauna due to no air conditioning in... More

This hotel looks nice on the outside. During our vacation, we reviewed other hotels, would go to Hotel 501 in Vibo instead. For the price it is not worth it. All I can say is my whole entire family was very disappointed. The services in this hotel are horrible. No air conditioning in the hallways, no extra pillows were allowed,... More
