34 small one and two bed apartments with very nice swimming pool and restaurant on site. Only the top row facing the sea has a lovely view the rest either face out onto the car pak or a line of trees. The apartment is adequate but has no sitting area apart from the table and chairs in the kitchenette and... More

The apartment, the view of the sea from the terrace was incredible. Good facilities of the apartment. It is clean and enogh space inside. Notice, the bigger apartment has sea view. You walk only 10 minutes to the beautiful beach. The pool is also perfect. It was enough warm in September. The stuff (recepcionist, waiter etc.) was very kind and... More

We have stayed there in 2009 with our friends. We were renting a two bedroom apartment with the kitchen and bathroom. I was happy with the rooms, beds and everything else. I mean, for the price we have paid for the week, it was a really nice place. We also had a small terrace, where we used to have breakfasts... More

Recently stayed here at the end of July. Arrived and were friendly welcomed by the receptionist who spoke just about enough English to communicate. We had a self-catering apartment with a sea view and pool view from the balcony. The balcony had a table with 4 chairs, a deck chair, and a towel/clothing drying rack. Inside was pleasant enough, two... More

It is a good place if you pretend to spend most of the day at the beach, because the rooms aren't the best, but the price is very reasonable. The pool is very nice (remember in Italy they usually ask you to use swimming cap, so take yours if you have one). Typically in Italy you won't get the best... More

This resort-style hotel is basic and clean. Reception staff are helpful, friendly and kind and speak enough english to be able to communicate comfortably. Unfortunately this hotel was NOT for us. We booked it to be close to Tropea and because it had a pool. The pool itself was rather small and you are required to wear a bathing cap... More

Every year I go with some friends to Capo Vaticano and we always choose the Taverna Residence. The beach Grotticelle is not far away and there is a shuttle bus - included in the booking - going down to the beach. We stay in a big and clean apartment with a wonderful view not to far away from the swimming... More

The Residence is situated on the Capo Vaticano promontory, 9 Km from Tropea, in a peaceful position. We can admire suggestive sunsets of Isole Eolie and a splendid panorama of lights at night.
