The hotel is an easy downhill walk from the train station and right on the main road that leads into the town center.
The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was served in a cheery room. The common areas outside are pleasant for relaxation, but there is little common area space inside the hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. After the drive up a very steep and windy road we were greeted by the resort. Our room looked out over the pool and the surrounding countryside, which was a great view to be greeted by on the terrace which we used morning and evenings. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful suggesting places to visit when the weather didn't allow you to sit around the pool to relax. The event staff tried to encourage you to join in daily in the activities on offer, although they were not intrusive. The food was excellent - there was a variety of fresh fruit, pastries, cheeses and ham for breakfast and the a la carte dishes we chose in the evening we were wonderful.

I was in Hotel Tirreno for 2 days in early May. Great breakfast, the rooms are a little bit 1990'ish but it's very clean, very comfy. It's calm, friendly, beautiful with gorgeous views and a great price/value ratio in my opinion.

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!

This hotel was a last minute choice, and the best of our month-long journey. At first we had reserved a very cheap room but when we saw it we were very disappointed. They shouldn't even rent it. When I asked at the desk for something else, they gave us a suite right on the beach side. We were thrilled. Good thing we said something! There are beach chairs and tables for each room, the beach is clean and well taken care of, and the view is stunning. The restaurant is right on the beach-side. I had been sick with a cold and I healed here in the crystal clear water. The staff was excellant and very helpful.

The Hotel is wonderful, the staff extremley helpful, loved the pool.
If you are looking to have a massage I would not recommend it as we did not have a pleasant experience. The Masseuse was on her mobile whilst giving us a massage,not really interested in what she was doing.
The food did not vary much the whole time we were there, also it does carter to German tourist.

We stopped for a night in Nicotera Marina having driven from Umbria before catching the ferry to Messina the following morning. Nicotera Marina is an unpretentious, buzzy, fun resort with virtually no non-Italians, and the Antica Marina is undoubtedly the best hotel in town. The hotel itself and the room were good and offered excellent value.
But. We ate in the hotel's restaurant which offered fresh fish - which turned out to be only swordfish. We were charged 10 euros each by the hotel's proprietor for half-litre jugs of local wine which was scandalous - the white was best described as uninteresting whereas the red was totally undrinkable (and we left it). In six weeks in Italy this was significantly the worst meal yet one of the more expensive. Sad.
