“Not recommend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Is not in the best place of Calabria. Team is good, but without support from the director of the resort. Is not recommended for long stay and is too close to a river that make the sea always dirty. Organised the gala day when politician and other VIP arrived. The director she is not a nice person to talk; can not be defined as resort and not a village, but a relax for 3rd age

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

My family (2+3, all children under 10) has just been visiting Le Dune Blu in Calabria. We really enjoyed the stay. The hotel is very nice and clean, has a big family friendly pool, is very close to the beach (actually on the beach), has a nice and good restaurant AND really friendly personnel. There is also a football pitch, volleyball nets, a big playground for the kids, table tennis and more. The room we stayed in was VERY nice (compared to other hotels we have stayed at in Italy this was luxurous!), really clean and comfortable. The only small negative thing was the size of the balcony (too small to fit a sitting family in a good way).
At the time when we where here (end Sept to Beg Oct) we had the resort almost for ourselves, which was a surrealistic feeling due to the warm weather - with summer weather like this you would expect the hotel to be full - but it was clearly off season we understood.
Even if the closest surroundings is not so exciting, you are rather close to other beautiful places, like amazing Scilla (30 km). You can go by car or take the local train, which we did. Very easy and cheap!
The closest town is San Ferdinando (1,5 km) and this is a place not worth visiting if you prefer nice restaurants and beautiful surroundings, even if the people living there was really helpful and kind to us. The town of San Ferdinando was the only disappointing thing about our visit to Calabria.
To summarize, we really liked Le Dune Blu. Normally we are more active on our vacations than we were this time: we "only" wanted peace and quite and a nice place to relax on. If you prefer that - do not hesitate to book your vacation at Le Dune Blu in Calabria!
Thank you Isabella, Roberta and C for five fantastic days!

We stayed at Le Dune Blu Resort all off a sudden on our road trip in Calabria. Very good (and different) place, activities for the whole family all the time, lovely Yoga in the afternoon on the beach, we had a lot of fun in the pool with the children joining the water- gymnastic-lesson. Nice sea view from our room 102. The level of the music in the pool in afternoon was a little bit too high, but the beach was just around the corner, where it was more quiet. Very very nice staff who worked with animation for children, thank you Roberta and company for 3 very good days!
