“Never Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Bad vacation, smelly room all 3 days, sewer issues, rooms in need of repairs, breakfast buffet the bare minimum, always out of items, even no coffee today for breakfast. The pool and beach are OK, the rest just terrible, including the staff who where not very friendly, very disappointed and heard nothing from managaement after complaining all 3 days.

Room Tip: Check your room before you pay.

Terrible experience. Room was a disaster with broken tiles, baseboards missing, a broken shower and broken air conditioning. The food was in edible, cold and ran out quickly. Had to gointo town to get a decent meal. Even the coffee tasted like instant. The towel service was non-existent. Our room had no phone and the television did not work. The walk ways were broken and dangerous and the hall outside my room was layered with sand bags and no lights. The entertainment staff was the only positive. Save your money. It was the workst vacation experience of my life.

I had a great stay at this resort, the staff is the made up of the greatest people and the location is ideal for a relaxing beach/pool vacation. From here, you can take many different excursions, for example, I toured the Isole Eolie for the day. The Baia Tropea is a place for all kinds of clients who are looking for a relaxing Calabrian seaside vacation.
