"Good facilities and service, great family room"
We visited with our children (aged 10 and 12) at the very end of October 2013, when most of Tropea (and Italy) is closing down its tourist facilities, so our comments relate to that period and we can't comment on what it is like in high season. We had a lovely time (lucky to have sunshine every day; 21-25 degrees) and really enjoyed the hotel as a base from which to explore Tropea and the surrounding region.
The location, just outside the old town, worked both for walking into town (10 mins down a gentle hill) and for (free) parking and exploring Capo Vaticano.
There's no real view to speak of but the pool is nice. We got a family room (108), booked on the internet, and had no idea what form that would take. It turned out to be excellent! One entrance onto a small hall, from which you access three rooms: a twin with bunk beds, a bathroom (shower, not bath) and a double room (two singles attached - gap hardly noticeable) with TV, off which there was a balcony. It meant you could put the kids to bed and then stay up without disturbing them, with assurance of their safety.
The hotel restaurant closed the night we arrived but there were plenty of good places to eat in the town. Good breakfast selection, but all self service (coffee from machines, pre-cooked bacon & scrambled eggs, fresh croissants, cereal, yoghurt, toast, cold meats & cheese). Nice facilities, friendly staff (some spoke English), very clean. Comfy beds. Recommend it!
