The place is ideally located at the seashore, but once you are there, you are somewhat stranded and dependent upon their services. Loved the idea of a balcony looking at the water but I literally killed 10 mosquitos and was told to keep the window closed! Humph! Then come breakfast time, we counted 15 empty tables adjacent to the windows... More

We happened across this hotel as one of those unplanned stays whilst travelling to Calabria. The path to the hotel is SUPER tricky - but the facility is gorgeous, the staff brilliant, the beach gorgeous. On the day we stayed, a few Britts to hand, the most were Italian - mostly family and young people. Loved the place, super inexpensive... More

The hotel is located in a beautiful bay, and is right next to the beach. Nice private parking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, perhaps for the price of the room they should include more options of earm dishes (eggs, sausage, etc). They should try to make the showers a little bigger.

When we opened the door of our room, the windows were closed, but when we opened them the view was spectacular! We had a balcony with breathtaking sea views. Worth every curve in the road just to reach the hotel! The next day we had breakfast overlooking the sea from the restaurant, very good options! We also went to the... More

The hotel benefits from a wonderful location, right on the sea and at the feet of the mountains. I would say location is the only pro of the Gabbiano. Breakfast is medium range, with no fresh products and services is average. The worst thing? Wi-fi is not working and there's nothing the staff can do to make it working: this... More

Booked a room last minute for almost nothing and happily accepted the upgrade we received when we checked in. Room nice with a beautiful view. Reception staff cordial and helpful. Dinner in the restaurant OK, not fantastic. I am writing this review while we WAIT for the server to clear our plates and offer us dessert (15 minutes so far..)... More

It was late in the evening. My husband went to ask the price for a room, any room, with sea view or not. Somebody went to look for the receptionist...it was the very same person who was watching TV when my husband stepped in. Do you have a room and what's the price ? The answer was 70 euro per... More

This hotel is situated right on the beach and many rooms have great views of the sea and the dramatic coastline. Our room was smallish but well fitted with plenty of storage. Bathroom was a bit dated, the shower was quite tiny but it was clean and adequate. It is a bit away from anything else so we ate in... More
