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.
