Hotel Rocca Della Sena

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We spent two weeks at this superb hotel. The view from our balcony was breathtaking: turqoise water in the sea and stunning sunsets between the Lipari islands. Our room and the hotel as a whole was extremely clean, well kept as well as nicely decorated and furnished with style and lots of love for details. Even at the end of a very long season the staff were always extremely friendly, good-humoured and helpful. Every day they made a real effort to have a personal chat with us. Furthermore, lots of little thoughtful surprises such as a late-afternoon antipasti buffet and drink, an evening sweet, ... showed us how much everybody wanted to make our holiday an unforgettable experience. Well done! This is definitely a place we are looking forward to going back to.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view!

After returning earlier this year from the Philippines where I have found an absolutely great place to stay I thought I would never find the same great hotel again. I could have never been more wrong, I have chosen Rocca Della Sena as it had good reviews so the high standards were already set. All my expectations were met and exceeded, the hotel is located on the lungomare which is a very nice stretch of the beach and it is very very close to the historical town centre (approx 10 min walk).

The hotel serves excellent breakfast with large choice of food, there is also the opportunity to try the local delicatessen which is good to get an insight into local calabrian cuisine. Staff were very attentive and provided excellent customer service, they did make me feel very welcome and there is no way I will be staying in any other place in Tropea than this hotel. Louise, Simona and Danillo - you are simply the best!!!

Steps to the beach never bothered me (daily excercise!), food in the restaurant excellent! Rocca Della Sena IS a True gem in Tropea. Happy to recommend to anyone!

Lovely setting - staff very helpfuland and attentive - complimentary drinks on the terrace brilliant.
Rooms comfortable - we had a small balcony on the front which overlooked the street but the views from the terrace made up for it. Coffee at breakfast was lovely and breakfast plentiful. Discount at the Lido if you wish to use it and a nice walk into town. 178 steps down to the beach - they have a gym but we did not use it and internet. Drinks in the room in mini bar which we not expensive and, as late arrivals, we were delighted to find some lovely chocolate profiteroles which we had with a bottle of wine from the mini bar.

Room Tip: Upper floor with sea view would be amazing

We just spent two wonderful days in Tropea at the Hotel Rocca Della Sena. Louise greeted us warmly after a long drive to Tropea. Our room was clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay...even beach towels are provided. The beach is a trek down many steps, but good exercise! The views from the terrace of the hotel are absolutely stunning, and provided a beautiful spot to have a drink and relax for several hours. We enjoyed our short walk into the old town, and particularly liked our dinner at Al Pinturicchio, which Loiuse had recommended to us. We would definitely say that Tropea is a delightful location on the Calabrian coast, and the Hotel Rocca Della Sena is the place to stay!

I cannot express how thrilled we were when planning our trip to Tropea that our choice was to stay at this family owned hotel. My husband and I felt that it was perfect in every way. The location was spectacular with the sound and clear view of the sea below us. The very clean rooms were nicely furnished and very ergonomic in the layout and storage. The breakfast were delicious (especially the yogurt and the homemade nduja) with the fun and lively service of Simone. Louise at the front desk was a Godsend for her English speaking and knowledge of the area. Her recommendations were spot on as to what to see and where to eat. The young owners wer so kind and hospitable giving us a true Calabrian experience and making us feel at home in their lovely place.The guests were international coming from England, Norway, Germany, and the US. Never hestiate to stay at this small wonderful authentic hotel with an excellent staff, beautiful surrounds, and perfect location to explore this faded yet timeless, beautiful seaside village of Tropea.

Room Tip: They sometimes serve dinner ther at night and it is really really good and the service is wonderful...

We loved everything about this small, boutique hotel. Cool, quirky decor, spectacular views & sunsets, plentiful breakfast with lots of choice (including eggs), & the delicious yoghurt a previous reviewer mentioned. The front of house staff, Louise & Patrizia went out of their way to help us from enquiry to departure. Simona who serves breakfast is delightful, chatty, smiley & fun and Danilo mixes a great G&T & recommended some lovely Calabrian wines. The housekeepers kept our room immaculate & we must mention the chef, who we didn't meet but who cooked wonderful evening meals using fresh, local ingredients. The room had window shutters so was very dark &quiet at night and we slept incredibly well. Yes, there are steep steps to & from the beach but we regarded these as our exercise for the day, & at the top we were rewarded with drinks & fruit or appetisers served to us in the jacuzzi in a beautiful garden with a stunning view - in our opinion hard to beat.

This hotel will not disappoint. We had a beautiful room 190 steps above the Mediterranean Sea.
Our hosts were charming and our receptionist Louise helped me from the day I inquired to the day we left.
Breakfast was included and was excellent. I highly recommend this jewel!
