Hotel Stella Maris
We have been staying at this hotel for a number of years now, since it was newly opened. 
We had been staying  at another hotel in the the vicinity  one day in 2004, when we passed by and noticed this new hotel. It stood out by its elegance and style, so we entered to enquire,  and decided to transfer there.   We never regretted the move and have stayed there every holiday since. 
I would rate this as the  best hotel of all the hotels  I have stayed in,  in Reggio Calabria!
The staff are professional, courteous  and most helpful. They will go out of their way to attend to your every need and desire. 
The hotel is a model of cleanliness and elegance, both inside and outside. 
Their restaurant offers a variety of choices, to suit every palate,  at reasonable prices. They will willingly arrange to provide you with any additional request, be it lunch,  dinner or breakfast. 
We are very satisfied with what this hotel has to offer. 
As well as a gymnasium, there are two swimming pools, including an outside garden pool, with plenty of lounging chairs and sheltered areas for relaxation and recreation, including an outdoor bar, as well as an inside Olympic pool.  
And if you like to sing, you will enjoy the karaoke which is a regular occurrence in summer!

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side are quieter (the front) . Parking is available behind the hotel in addition t...

The Hotel Stella Maris, was by far the worst so called hotel we have ever stayed at! Terrible condition with equally accommodations, we arrived late & with no time to go look for a restaurant for dinner, so
we had dinner @ their restaurant, very limited menu, the food was totally salty & the restaurant environment with lots to be desired! the fee as well as the restaurant prices were incredible high for the kind of lodging it offers! will most definitely do an extensive review
to the tripadvisor.com, as well as spread the word to our friends & family as to prevent anyone we know to stay in such a place! Forgot to mention the breakfast, another joke!

The bathroom was a real joke! a so called shower approximately. 2' x 2' incredible, it was the first time that we had to "squeeze" soap out
of a container on the wall which was hardly dispensing any soap & it had to be punched in order to pump; the toilet paper, where on earth did you get those tiny sheets about 3" x 5"? that's unheard off!

You can rest assure that we will never stayed in the Stella Maris, nor
book any accommodations thru booking.com!

domyPalmi, manager and owner at Grand Hotel Stella Maris, responded to this review, January 22, 2008
The Hotel Stella Maris was built three years ago. Most of customers says it is a good hotel. Rooms are confortable -
air conditioned, fridge bar, tv color, safe with easy directions for use, wardrobe, bathroom, modern shower with easy "Dove" soap system, hairdryer, telephone, balcony.
Breakfast is continental type, restaurant is opened from 12.30 to 14.30 for lunch and from 19.30 to 22.00 for dinner.
Our menu includes hors d'oeuvre, three first dishes, three second dishes, fruit or dessert. Guest can choose to dine "a la carte", if he prefer. Each environment is elegant and
refined. I think our prices are good and I am sure I have a quality hotel but I always think I have to improve all services.
I am sorry if somebody didn't have a good stay at Grand Hotel Stella: when you visit our hotel you will understand who says the truth.
