Very warm hospitality from staff in a friendly way but reaching the hi end level of quality . Tropea is a beautiful place already but the experience will be complete if you stay in tocca della Sena hotel . At least but not least they have a very careful attention to the wellness experience starting from bedroom mattress quality sorting the best on innovation product strictly made in Italy . It’s a style matter Great job!! Marco Jiaoer and Yuki ….. Florence

This is the type of hotel that pays attention to every detail of the visitor experience and inspires their staff to spoil guests. We were welcomed so warmly by the front desk staff. They showed us around the amenities and had our booking all organized. Staff were on hand to help with bags, give sight-seeing recommendations and coordinate visits to the beach. The entire hotel is spotless and smells so clean - the hallways, rooms, breakfast room and bar are all extremely well-kept, beautifully lit and cozy. The beds were comfy and the jacuzzi was hot. Our breakfast featured ripe fruit, local cheese and meats, hot tea and a broad selection of other options. The view is stunning and access to the beach is pretty straightforward. Overall, the hotel offers quiet and luxury. Our rental car was easily stored on the residential street (as promised on the website).We had a wonderful time exploring the historic centre, which hosts some amazing restaurants, and came back to have some late-night, tasty cocktails made by a very talented bartender. We did not want to leave! We were spoiled at every turn and would 1000% recommend this stay to anyone visiting the beautiful spot that is Tropea.

Rocco Della Sena was wonderful from the time I booked, great communication including help suggestions transportation, activities and restaurants. The terrace is relaxing and views spectacular, close to both the beach and town! Every staff member took the time to get to know us and personalize our trip with morning cappuccinos and evening cocktails, wine and Coke Zero 😂. The room was very comfortable (#305), it has a wonderful balcony in view, shower was fantastic and spotlessly clean. I’m sure there’s some thing I am missing including listing the staff by name, but I’ve run out of space! Grazie MIlle, we will be back!

Definitely not what I would call a boutique hotel 🙂🙂 in fact very far from it. The hotel and decor is strangely a blend of ethnic (African art), some Indian with colours that make the hotel dark and unwelcoming. A weird combination of sorts & sadly not what we were expecting after having paid the price we did. The breakfast again is strangely not self service. You have to ask and then they will give you a slice of pineapple, melon and it seems it’s to save cost. From our South Italian vacation the most disappointing after having read all eve reviews. On the plus the view from the veranda is amazing. You not allowed to have your breakfast on the veranda again strange! The hotel needs a revamp as it’s sadly dark and rooms very very small and dark.

Excellently located Hotel in very close vicinity (ten minutes walking time) of Tropea's historic centre with spectacular views from both rooms and public areas of the Aeolian Islands. Service very focused and friendly, but articulate. A definite PLUS is that this Hotel has a private garage very close by.

Lovely stay and a super friendly staff. Stayed here the night before we departed on the ferry to Sicily. Great fun with the Tuk Tuk to dinner and dipping our toes in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoyed the complimentary and delicious welcome beverage and a chance to breathe in the ocean air and view rolling waves overlooking a vast expanse of sea. The room was sparse but we slept well and enjoyed the outdoor tub. Breakfast was great but no longer a need for staff assistance with buffet. Other restaurants in Italy are no longer shepherding guests through the buffet line. Wonderful memories! Bring bug spray!

We had a wonderful stay! Comfy bed, great service. Sleeping with the doors open and the ocean crashing was great! Rooms are small, but that was not important to us. We had a lovely, romantic stay. Breakfast was above and beyond anywhere I have stayed with breakfast included. Views beautiful. Highly recommend ocean view room, worth paying a little bit more. Cheers!

Hotel has lovely terrace with exceptional ocean views. Stayed in room 211, room was spacious (By Italian standards), bathroom was modern, good size walk-in rain-shower & terrace was large with Jacuzzi Tub . But what made the stay memorable was the staff. From the breakfast help to the front desk to the lovely Brazilian young lady who provide bar & hotel terrace services in the evening. All were always courteous and willing to provide assistance at all times. Very special thanks to Giovanni, Romyna and Paola.

Rocca della Sena is my guarantee in Tropea! It doesn't matter if you are travelling alone, in company or with your family to relax or for a special event, the Team is always amazing! For this stay they helped me organize the 25th birthday of my sister. I booked the room wirh jacuzi and see view and they served us breakfast on the terrace, offering us 2 glasses of Prosecco. They also helped me book a private boat tour from Tropea to Capovaticano (along the coast of the goods-amazing😍) and a little, beautiful restaurant overlooking the sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Isola. Location, cleanliness, safety and service always top! A big thank to the manager and all his wonderful staff! See you next year!😉

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and the service was excellent. The room was fine and breakfast was varied. The location was excellent of course and enjoyed extensive sea views especially from the main terrace. But considering the state of the hotel, its decor and services offered the cost is exorbitantly high.
