this hotel is worth the drive, because is a bit tricky to get there, but when you arrive is worth every minute, first is right in the beach, with the gorgeous hills in the back, is small, few rooms , we had one right in front of the beach with a terrace, the owner Simone was so nice, he gave...

My husband and I stayed at the Old Well for 4 nights. Great location near town. The restaurant was only open for breakfast and lunch so we had to drive into town for supper. The hotel is difficult to find, but it is worth the search. It sits right on a pebbly, sand beach with crystal clear water. Neat rock... More

Little hotel tucked in a hidden lovely beach. Very simple facilities but the place is beautiful. Friendly service. For beach scene it can't get better than this. Crystal clear water nested under dramatic cliffs. The rooms are very simple but large. Restaurant is at the place so you can stay in your swimsuit the whole day.

We really enjoyed our 3 days at this hotel, largely due to the beach and the view The rooms are very basic beach shack style. The food was a bit hit and miss, had some good local seafood but other dishes where quite basic and unimaginative Still worth the visit though

Stayed for 2 nights last week.. Great location approx 2kms from Tropea town centre on a secluded beach with views out to Stromboli. Only 10 rooms or so but adequately equipped with a great shower. Was still pretty quiet in June but extremely relaxing throughout. Restaurant provided a comprehensive breakfast and the evening meals were good value.. Would certainly recommend.

Our group stayed 2 nights for the purpose of breaking up our drive from Naples to Sicily and to see Stromboli erupt. From Oldwell we visited Stromboli in the evening to see the volcano erupt. Our boat trip to the island was organised by the Oldwell Hotel. The Oldwell Hotel offers old fashioned hospitality. The surrounds are absolutely stunning. Rooms... More

Stayed at Old Well Hotel in October of 2014 as part of our honey moon. Could not ask for a more spectacular location. The rooms were quaint, but had all of the necessities. The staff were helpful, and food prepared there was fabulous. Their location could not get any better. The beach is just heaven. Parking and a sun bed... More

Hotel is set in a perfect location. Private beach, crystal clear water. Family ran, good breakfast. Beds were a bit uncomfortable but worth it! Staff was very friendly and ensured we had a great visit!

Hotel was in a fantastic location, staff were outstanding and very helpful. There was a lovely vibe in the hotel as it is family run and we couldn't fault our stay. Despite stuffing the hotel around with late arrival they still could not do enough to help us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. View and the beach out the... More

Residence Old Well cancelled my reservation 48 hrs ahead despite having confirmed my reservation FOUR months ago. They said they were "overbooked" and the alternative was 15 minutes drive away, NOT on near the beach, NOT even in the town of Tropea!
