We are emotionally attached to Italy and everything this beautiful country offers. For the ones who love abandoned place with well kept garden, cut grass, banana trees with no groceries shop, no coffee shops, go for this. But be aware of kitchen Italian-like is really poor, side dishes served buffet style can be but the secondi even fish or pasta is the worst we had. This isn’t Italian style. You got to rent a car to visit/see places otherwise rates are outrageous. Walking around the roads is extremely dangerous as no sidewalks are available. Places outside of the resort is messy and polluted.

We had wonderful time in Old RIver. Hotel area is very nice with very good sport facilities. You can stay by the pool or go to the beach (400) which is not crowded! Food was Italian and delicious:-). Hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
We will definitely come back. Thank you! Lucie

We had a wonderful stay at old river village. Rooms have been refurbished recently and are clean. As italian native i was looking for a place to show to my finnish gf the beauties of Calabria and this is the right place. We felt part of this family run business. All the staff is very attentive and welcoming. We had full board option and we didn' t regret it, we found proper calabrese food, not a boring international buffet like everywhere but a different menu everyday with seasonal ingredients. Thank you Chef! We work in hospitality and we can guarantee this is a genuine place.
Thank you to the owners (always involved in daily operations at the hotel)!
Thank you to the waiters always welcoming us with a warm Buongiorno and Buonasera. Thank you to the housekeepers for keep clean the hotel. Thanks to all the staff for making my stay awesome. A special thank you to Michele at the bar for amazing cocktails pre dinner :)
I recommend to visit this place to who' s reading this review and to my friends.

We knew where we were going location-wide. But some things were simply despicable. You have to pay for wifi. A lot of money per each gadget. You have to pay for the fridge. There is no air-conditioning. Good inedible. You get a fine for bringing a bottle of water down to the pool! And if you put together all the extra cost, this place turns out to be not a cheap one too. This hotel was the worst place I ever visited.

Don't eat the food, breakfast was limited with only some bread ham/cheese and bacon scrambled eggs, same everyday... We ate once at the hotel and it was barely eatable and when talking to other guests at the hotel they all agreed. Pool was not heated thus not usable, but it was clean. Expensive shuttle to Tropea where you could go half the price if you took the commercial shuttle up the street instead. Can't recommend staying there other than to B&B.

The staff is kind of rude, they don't really care about their clients, they only want to get money from them. They offer to drive you, but only in specific places, they don't want to take you anywhere else, even if it's closer than their destinations. They also don't want to help you to hire a car, unless you pick the company they work with and so on. You have to pay for AC, which is outrageous.

From the moment of arrival until we left, we were thoroughly impressed with the location, services and food of the Old River.
Due to illness, one of our party was using crutches,this could have been a problem but Silvana had provided a solution......... the 2 bed garden Apartment. It was wonderful and provided our party of 2 couples EVERYTHING we could have asked for. With only 30 steps to the pool and 50 to the restaurant and beautiful views of the pool and palm trees it was so relaxing.
The food was way beyond what you would expect from a 3* establishment, especially the variety of pasta and sauces and was served by waitresses who were attentive and friendly. All staff were friendly and polite...well done.
Thank you so much Don Francisco, Silvana and all staff.
We thoroughly recommend Old River to couples and families.

We stayed in mid June for a week.Really nice place to stay, close to the beach which is quite and not crowded. Rooms are spacious and clean. Food was simple but really tasty and didn't disappoint us during our stay. All the staff super friendly and helpfull, any questions we had was answered by lovely girl (We think her name was Olympia) at the reception. Few restaurants and shop in walking distance was a plus. If you looking for a nice quite place to relax this tick all the boxes, definitely recommend.

Beautiful village about 15 minutes from Tropea, an ideal base for visiting all the beautiful beaches in the area, all 15/20 minutes by car. Barbara will welcome you and you will love immediately, a smile, a warmth and kindness that are rare to find, even all the rest of the staff and the owner are absolutely adorable and caring people, the food is excellent and the buffet is truly appetizing!
the meatballs are DIVINE. Excellent cleanliness, well-kept swimming pool and garden. On the day of our anniversary we were supposed to go to the Aeolian islands but I had a small accident and I wasn't walking well, they welcomed us for dinner with a heart of petals and bubbles. Hospitality that fills the heart...
This place makes you want to come back...and we will! ❤️
