“An excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Our friends recommended this charming & friendly hotel in Pizzo Calabria to us and we were very happy that they did. We had a great stay, spent 5 fantastic nights. Room on ground floor was spacious, very clean and quiet. Service was just great and the owner Luigi at the front desk and the rest of the staff so friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet with assorted bread & cakes, cornflakes and fresh milk and fruit every day! Parking was available at any time of the day and a magnificent beach at 5 min walk with crystal clear water. You do need a car to get around. Would definitely go back!

Stayed here for three nights on our family vacation to Calabria. Very charming hotel, quiet, clean, friendly owner Luigi. We were greeted when we arrived, there was always someone at the front desk, and breakfast was fresh, coffee was served also by Luigi. This is not a big chain hotel, but a quaint quiet hotel. walking distance to the beach, and you will need a car to get to the town of Pizzo. The room was nice, clean, alittle small, the bathroom was a good size and clean. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends and would stay here again.

If you dont have a car dont go there. Its quite far to Pizzo and the road is dangerous to walk (if you find a taxi its 10-20 euros)
The place was clean except a dead lizard in the pool but very run down and very boring.
The staff was friendly and the beach nice.

Stayed here twice. Once when driving around Italy, second time on Ryanair cheapie weekend. Very friendly owner Luigi. First time was in season and jumping. Second visit in a February - more subdued.
Couldn't ask for more. Pizzo is fine little town, you have to try the gelato tartufi. If you have a car, definitely see Riace bronzes in Reggio. Scilla is also worth a look as is Tropea. Eat nduja. Calabria is wonderful!

What a lovely place. Stayed in a B+B first night....beware although very friendly and clean , no ensuite, nilon flowery sheets. then moved to hotel Marinella, a couple of miles along the beach. good location, clean, friendly, famous ice cream parlour walking distance, and beach 2 minutes on foot. restaurant wasnt best though, staff are very friendly,
Try this restaurant just off of the square "Trattoria Pizzeria, "husband wife team, everything was fantastic and very cheap. (we like our food and it has to be good)
Pizzo is just lovely, pretty little town hanging off of the cliff with small marina. beaches nearby are excellent, sandy with strombolli in the distance. good location for travel to Sicily, mountains and Lamezia Terme airport only 15 minutes by car. what can I say...we'll be back.....
