I had an amazing time, the staff team is awesome, very hardworking and nice to the kids and adults. The food was exquisite and the beach & pool were always clean. The cleaning staff was also very friendly and polite. There was always an option for celiacs and lactose intolerants. The shows were creative specially for the little ones but there was also music for the old folks. Altogether amazing! (Sorry, I don't speak Italian)

Not so much a hotel, more of a holiday camp or resort. As such, the Minerva must be great for families with children. The pool area is beautiful and there are kids play areas in the pine forest which leads down to the beach - which is itself just lovely. However, we were on a package holiday especially for the over 50's; the hotel was relatively quiet in mid September but I believe it can be pretty manic during the main summer holiday period. The Saga bar area was a welcome retreat and facility. The breakfast buffet was good, but the food at dinner pretty dire most of the time - see other guests' comments, with which I would agree. Cannot really see why Saga would use this hotel, apart from the fact Southern Italy has reliably good weather.

Having had two holidays at the Minerva, I feel more than qualified to give my view. Our Room, Lovely, lots of wardrobe space , clean very good shower, good linen. All meals are taken in a private dinning room, a buffet of anti pasto, hams, salads, fresh veg all from the owner's farm, the choice of starters & mains chosen the night before, fresh fruit and cakes to die for, I can not take serious, any complaints of the food, from people who can not tell fresh from frozen, who order chips on the first night, the range of Calabrian food was outstanding, no pizza with pineapple either. The beach is laid out for the high season, while we were there , no more than three rows of chairs taken, its reached by a short walk, through pine trees. The swimming pool is very large, the front did get crowded, always managed to fine a comfortable place at the rear. Saga gala dinners were exceptional, our rep made guests who had brithdays or anniversaries feel special, the owner when on site joined in, the Saga lounge , with bar and terrace was the envy of the Italians. There is a theatre for the children away from the rooms, shows every evening finish early, other entertainment stops at midnight. There is also a ballroom, a dancing instructor weekly just for Saga guests The rep did everything to ensure everbody a good time, ever the bully boys, maybe for the guests who don't like to mix with the Italians on holiday, perhaps Sage should have finished a week earlier.

After reading reviews on this hotel, I felt honour bound to say how much I dissagree with some of the negative reviews. I originally booked for two weeks with Saga and after one very relaxing week I decided to extend my stay by another two weeks, and I have already booked to return there next May/June for four weeks. My first week there we were only seven (first week after the ash settled) but the hotel management andthe Saga Rep went out of their way to ensure we got out and about to see the beautiful unspoilt Calabrian Villages. I have travelled with Saga many times and have always found their holidays to be very reliable and accurate to the brochure description. The fact that the Italians were there in June surely would make for more atmosphere (and it is their country after all) and I personally cannot wait to experience it and embrace all. It is the only hotel where not only does one meet and get to know the owner Luigi, but he actually organised and joined in some of the evening entertaiment. I had no complaints about the food, it was very varied and the bar was well serviced. To those who found it too busy in June, (when it is well known that the Italians start their holiday) why not go in April or May? Very much looking forward to returning next year and a BIG THANK YOU TO ALL AT THE MINERVA RESORT AND OUR SAGA REP.

This was our first experience of a Saga holiday and it will be our last! We have visited other parts of southern Italy at this time of year and love the food, and culture. Saga sell this hotel has having won awards for its food so we foolishly thought that we couldn't go wrong. Big mistake! Other than a couple of meals, the food we were served can only be described as dreadfull! Certainly not award winning and in most cases barely edible. We complained to the Saga Rep at the resort who was not interested and clearly had no palate and could not be bothered to do anything. We then approached a member of the hotel staff who agreed with us and arranged a meeting for us and other guests with the hotel owner. Things improved slightly the next day, but soon reverted back to previous standard. We have advised Saga of our opinions of our hoilday and they are not interested. We had the potential to be their clients for the next 20 years or more but not now. Saga literally have a dying customer base and need to recruit and retain a new generation of clients if they are to survive in the long term. However, it appears that the holding company (Acromas) are only interested in cutting costs, and improving margins, short term so that they can then sell Saga off at a huge profit. It was virtually impossible to use the (very large) swimming pool due to the number of people. Footpaths were blocked by sunbeds, pushchairs and childrens scooters. Not withstanding the above the hotel itself is actually very pleasant and close to its own lovely sand private beach, it sits in its own well tended gardens and our room was clean and well equipped and the staff very helpful and polite. For young families this is a lovely resort, but it is not in any way suitable for Saga clients from June onwards.

we visited this hotel as part of a Saga holiday. We have visited this area before and do speak Italian. However our experience with Saga was very unpleasant. The food was not what would be expected from a 4* hotel, experiencing tin peas, carrots, tinned pears and pinapple. In the two weeks there we hardly saw a melon, cherries or figs all of which were in season. The food was mass catering for older people with little or no palate on a budget. The Saga representation was extremly poor and not preapred to take up constructive comments with the Hotel. This is the only holiday we have been on and had a meeting with other guests and the hotel owner. The hotel is advertised as being in a quiet location- 1900 Italians, 14 hour a day music, neighbouring very noisy resort- all these do not make a quiet location. However very clean rooms and waiting staff very attentive. would we visit again....... Hell no!!

Quite nice hotel, lovely location BUT extremely noisy in June when Italian families invade enmass. Booked for first time with SAGA as emphasised quiet location, quiet room and good food. Wrong on all counts. Location itself is pretty quiet as nothing around, bar another complex owned by hotel owner (with loud fireworks and evening entertainment that carries across til early hours) however the hotel itself is a resort, catering for families and is anything but quiet.. Our quiet room (according to SAGA brochure) was located in the SAGA block next to the main entertainment area and noisy pool area. Food a disaster, even after meeting with hotel owner himself. SAGA rep just could not be bothered with anyone who complains, wanted a quiet life herself. Beach lovely, but again very noisy once Italians arrived. SAGA should not use this resort after end of May. SAGA trips were only run if rep could be bothered. We will not use SAGA ever again as they are less than interested in any complaints.

We spent two weeks at the Minerva, travelling with Saga Holidays on an "all inclusive" basis. The hotel is magnificent set in wonderful grounds which are full of flowers. The beach is splendid and reached through a pine walk which is part of the hotel grounds. The area is rural with a backdrop of lovely mountains. Our group had its own lounge, bar and restaurant. The bar was open from 0930 to 2300 and staffed with a barman for our 24 Saga guests, so the service was excellent! Our restaurant was a mixture of buffet and waiter service - the food was plentiful, if a little unexciting. All the staff are excellent and attentive and could not be faulted. Although a large hotel it has a family feel about it and the hotel owner, Luigi, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. He organised several trips for us in the hotel mini bus and made no charge. The only downside to our holiday? The hotel is very large and was full of Italian families with small children. The hotel is aimed at this market with an entertainment team of 28 "animators". This meant that during the day there was non stop disco music at the pool which meant it was impossible to remain in the area if one wanted to relax. The disco music went on until 23.30 daily and sometimes until after midnight. After the first night we requested a room change which improved matters. Taken overall we had an excellent holiday and would recommend this hotel, subject to a quiet room being booked.

We stayed in this village during the week of August and it was the fullest and most crowded week of all but nevertheless we had a truly wonderful time. Arriving at the facility at 1.00 pm, we checked in in 5 minutes and they already gave us the room. Once we arrived in the room we noticed the slightly dated furnishings but honestly it didn't matter to us since we were on holiday in the room for very little. In short For me and my family everything went very well, excellent entertainment, young but smiling and sociable kids, delicious and varied cuisine with fish, meat and vegetable specialties every day. Baby food room complete with everything needed to satisfy all our needs parents. Fabulous water park for children, my children still remember it because they had so much fun. Fun and engaging evening shows. The clean beach and 2 steps from the rooms. I hope to come back because we liked everything. I recommend!!!
