If you have read through the previous comments, you will find that they are all correct. All in all, the resort is quite nice, with a great pool and a wonderful beach that provides amazing sunsets. Itaka representative is always there to help. The nature surrounding the resort is amazing, and the staff is very friendly and always ready to help. We had a pleasant time during our stay at this resort. However, there were some drawbacks. It seems that the resort's golden days are long gone, as many facilities such as fountains, the info center, and the pizza oven do not work. The room we were provided with was very dated and requires refurbishment. As mentioned in previous comments, if you arrive 15-20 minutes late for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, most of the meals will be gone and you will have to settle for leftovers. This resort has some interesting rules that I have never seen in other resorts, particularly regarding the pool. Swimming hats are mandatory, and inflatable toys, balls, and other items are only allowed in the children's pool out of the three available pools. The animation team only interacts with Italians, and at the beginning of our stay, there was virtually no animation until a larger group of Italians arrived. To sum it up, I would give this resort a strong three stars.

Despite the position on the beach and the beautiful sea of Calabria, this Nicolaus managed Hotel Sole Mare in Capo Vaticano coast is absolutely a cheat. Not a 4star, awful bedroom and not a real Italian cook experience. Moreover everything was a mess and not clean enough. Terrible experience, such a shame.

I just came back from a holiday from this hotel and honestly my mood it very mixed about this trip. Would I recommend other travellers to stay in this hotel? No. Was my holiday completely ruined? Also, no, but definitely wasnt the most pleasurable experience, for all the travellers we traveled together (we travelled with 9 other families and everyone was very disapointed). Here are some of the good and bad point of this hotel. Plus: very very lovely staff, especially Daniel and Marco, but everyone else was super helpful also, they really help this hotel and deserve a promotion they are awesome. I didnt encaunter a situation then they would be rude or not helpful, staff was the best part of this hotel. Big pool area, very close to the sea, hotel staff can orginize a car for you and their driver can drive you to another cities for a little fee. Coins: hotel policies are really rasist. We arrived at Saturday (9 couples from Lithuania) and also a lot of Polish tourist and we were given absolutely worst rooms you can ever imagine. Like 1 or 2 stars: some people didnt have electricity at all, bugs infested, no hot water, all dirty and old, water running from the toilet, toilet itself was all covered in you understand what and never cleaned and overoll it looked more like a room for cleaners when for travellers while there where plenty standart better rooms which was emty. On Thursday we understood why: the 30 travellers from Germany arrived and they all were given nicer rooms, first rows at the beach ( we were given the last row at the beach even know first 3 rows very completely emply), garden area to eat at the beach (we had to eat inside because it was also reserved for the german pll). The food from Saturday till Germans arrived was completely disgusting and not eatable, but after they arrived it changed completely and even the tables very decorated like its some kind of celebration. Also the animation team were at the entrance and great them in their language. I could go on about this topic, but I think the reader got the point. Another big coin: the hotel is situated down the very big hill, so if you want to go some where and see the beaches which was advertise prepared to climb a lot or pay hotel to drive you there. Also Capo Vaticano is really a village where not a lot of things to see, I would reccomend to stay in Tropea, in Tropea you will find everything you are looking for from beautiful clear beaches, to museums and restourants. Another unoleasant thing about the hotel - pool caps is mandstory in the pool, and I think its the only hotel with this policy. Water in the taps are salty (probably from the Sea) so you cannot drink it and have to buy bottled water. Food which is given at the breafast, lunch and dinner absolutely a night are, would not reccomend to anoyone, better dont buy the food there and buy a food in the separe restaurant in a hotel the one with a parrots cage- the food is good and not expensive there. All in all I reccomend to choose another hotel, and maybe even think about different city like Tropea.

terrible hotel, needs renovation, little choice of food, all inclusive soft option is a fake, everything has to be paid extra, shop 2 kilometers from the hotel, they don't understand English The only plus is the beautiful views, but it's not the hotel but nature :)

Warm welcome, nice food and gorgeous sea. We felt at home and on holidays at the same time! Relax and fun time in the same spot. Optimal for any age, family, young groups and more. We had the opportunity to know this place thanks to our friends’ wedding. We were young (and less young) couples, group of friends and families with kids. We all had great time. Apartments are cozy and with kitchen and air conditioning. You can easily spend one week there with no car if you wish. In June the village is very green and full of relaxing spots between palms, hammocks and gardens. The staff is warm and welcoming. Ah! The cherry on the cake is a wonderful swimming pool with sea water few steps from the beach. The sea… well why the need to go too far! Tropea is quite close to the residence and it’s a very authentic Italian spot to visit. Definitely an experience to do again

The price is very low so the evaluation cannot be too severe. I wanted to give 3.5 but it does not exist. The positive Very nice pool with virtually nobody swimming in it. The room is reasonably comfortable and has what is needed. The sea is beautiful The negative Mainly the meal buffets. Not enough points of access to the buffet and if you are a bit late you stay hungry. The WIFI is almost non existent. The hotel is rather isolated. A shuttle service to the train station would be nice
