We stayed at the hotel for a one week in the end of July. Beautiful resort,but not easy to find,even with a good navigation. The room was large and tidy with modern,yet elegant style. The breakfast was standard continental fare. The Wi-Fi coverage was very bad both inside and outside the hotel.
We were half-board and the meals at dinner were very tasty. The restaurant has high- quality cusine. The hotel is classified 4* and it's quite make this grade. Nice pool with sea water,but the beach is composed of pebbles,not sand! It's generally uncomfortable to walk on the stones,so I would recommend to buy plastic/rubber shoes. The Tyrrhenian sea is just crystal clear, a natural swimming pool . Reception staff is unhelpful and unfriendly,the check in and check out process is extremly slow. I have to mention,that room distribution manager Iconio was professional and well trained. There is a sauna ,hammam and indoor swimming pool,BUT there is EXTRA charge to use it! Excellent animation team,special thanks to Alessandro and Alessia and Icaro.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The ancients knew Capo Vaticano with the name of "Taurianum Promontorium", a name which, in Roman times, was changed to "Capo Vaticano". Vatican comes from "Vaticinium", Latin for oracle and response. According to the Legend, in a cave of the promontory of Capo Vaticano lived the Prophetess Manto, who gave advice and responses to mariners as to know the Will of the Gods before they would face the dangerous waters between Scylla and Charybdis. From the Prophetess, the rock "Mantineo" (from the greek "manteuo" give responses),which is located 200 meters off the Cape, takes its name. Located at the very south end of the Italian peninsula, in one of the most exclusive destinations of the beautiful "Costa degli Dei", Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa is nestled in the heart of the stunning scenery, facing the Aeolian Islands and the volcano Stromboli. The enticing, untouched nature and crystal clear waters make the Resort the ideal destination for those who love relaxation and water sports.
