When we arrived at the hotel, we realised it was more of a family holiday complex rather than a hotel.Walking up to room which seemed more like a chalet, we noticed a condom wrapped around a statue outside our room!The room we had been given was tiny, and in my opinion more of a hostel standard,and the bathroom was very very basic.There was no air con as the 'Standard Roms' don't have air con. It was mid August and boiling hot! We asked if there were any other rooms and was told the hotel was fully booked. We went to the private beach which is a 5min walk down the hill and was actually very nice. When we went back to our room to shower, we discovered the shower head was so old that the water literally dribbled out. Also, the drain was blocked so we ended showering in a pool of water. This time we spoke to the manager to complain, and he said there was one other room available. Again it was a standard room, and MUCH better! It was bigger, cleaner, and proper functioning bathroom! The next problem occured that night when we discovered by the pool area they have their evening entertainment until midnight every night. So no chance of sleep until after then. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to another couple as it was more of a family holiday destination, better suited for young children. The nearest town was Tropea whihc was a 10min drive away. The area itself is very Italian which was nice, although we struggled with communication at times, feeling like the only Brits in town.

disgusting!!!Posted Sep 2, 2011
Well where do i start! when we booked this "hotel" we were under the impression it was just that, upon check in we were escorted to a decrepit cabin instead! there was no a/c no t.v and we found a lizard in our room! when we complained to the front desk staff she explained that finding lizards in your room is quite normal and we booked a standard room therefore a/c wasn't included. when i told her it wasn't specified anywhere about not having a/c she replied it wasn't specified anywhere that their was.The cabin looked like it was about 30 years old, it was dirty, we found swatted flies on the wall, it looked like ants or termites were trying to dig their way through the framing and along the baseboards and the closest town is about 10min away by car and tropea is about 15min away by car. the "hotel" description and photos are extremely miss leading! if you must book this place get a comfort room we were upgraded a few days after complaining and it was like night and day! the room was beautiful it was like staying at a different resort. i am fully aware you get what you pay for, and this place wasn't cheap to stay at in august, we were very disappointed!

Beautiful beachPosted Aug 18, 2011
The hotel is fine, we didn't have the newly renovated rooms. The older rooms also don't have air conditioning. We liked the tables to sit at outside the rooms. The pool was nice as is the beach. It is quite a walk to the beach mainly downhill, but once you get there the water is amazing and the beach is really nice.

The best place to relaxPosted Sep 13, 2009 on Hotels.com
Hotel is maybe situated in a very rural place but if you go in the season there's a free touristic bus taking you to a lots of places on the coast e.g Tropea and Capo Vaticano which are very beautiful. If you travel by train from Lamezia Terme airport its worth checking timetables as they are every hour or so. Hotel was great, italian food, italian people are very friendly. Althugh they dont speak english and its worth to go with some dictionary. In general I recommend Hotel Stromboli as its the best place to forget about your everyday life there, why? small thing: there's not TV;)

Little known ItalyPosted Sep 15, 2008
This hotel is ideally placed to access Tropea and the Ionian Islands. It also has very good facilities such as Tennis courts, Swimming Pool and a Private beach area which are extra. The accommodation was excellent, very clean and well looked after.
