Stayed here for 2 nights on route to Sicily. Our friends stayed in Tropea and had to be bused to the beach. We slept here to the sound of the waves, woke up and had breakfast (served until 11am) right beside the beach. Hotel provides free beach towels, umbrella and chairs for the beach. Free parking, safe in room, restaurant... More

We arrived late, everything was arrangend before via telefone and someone let us in the room. In the morning we awoke on this beautiful bay, and had a full breakfast with delicious cappuchino, Managed... More

Beautiful place, great hospitality. Absolutely loved the place. Would recommend 2 nights here so have time to see the town. Mainly good if you just want to relax and not be next to a million other ppl (true for May, not sure about peak season...)

Oldwell is an amazing hotel located on the beach in Tropea, Italy. The service is quick for dinner, breakfast is fresh and varied and the hotel rooms are very accommodating. The rooms are large, with a very nice bathroom. All of this within a few meters of the fantastic beach!

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
