Magical town & Magical Hotel
After driving from Paris and spending two or three days in many Italian locations all the way from Paris we were in the mood for some relaxation. The area with its beaches and quaint town & this quaint hotel provided us with what we wanted. Beach below was wonderful. The hotel is clean and has a fitness facility , treadmill and bike , and sauna facing the Mediterranean as did the breakfast room and an outdoor patio with views of the volcanic island of Stromboli. Breakfast was wonderful and eggs made to order with accompanying cappuccino and waiter was most hospitable. Had a machine to drop in whole oranges and you watched it extract the juice. Nicest feature was the friendliness and efficiency of the female reception staff. We called them up to two weeks after we left the hotel for advice on hair salons and nails for manicure in some towns one to two hours away. Everyone here made us feel like we were in our home. Price is reasonable and fair and I strongly recommend this hotel.
Definitely Number 1
OK I haven't stayed in any other hotels in Tropea but this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in recently. The location is wonderful for the view and for how quiet it is, the direct access to a beach is a bonus, but the real quality of it is the top service. Dedicated staff who love their job and know what a client needs for a relaxing stay. This place will remind you to take it slow and enjoy your life, from the (mostly) locally-sourced breakfast to sitting and enjoying the view on the balcony. Rooms are spotless and the amenities provided are top, including the rainbow shower. And this is my feedback having chosen one of the standard rooms... Good job to the team, Romina sei la migliore, grazie per avermi ricordato di rallentare ogni tanto.
Amazing staff and views. Couldn't have been better.
This hotel was the highlight of our trip.
From upon arrival the staff were great. They preempted everything we needed, before we even knew it. They are really an amazing team and provide the best service.
The rooms are lovely with everything you could need.
The views from the terrace were stunning, and you could sit out there for hours sipping on win and aperol spritz.
The hotel is in a great location, with steps down to the beach, or 10 minute walk to the centre of town with all the restaurants and shops.
Overall an amazing stay, we highly recommend it.
We will be back, thank you.
Little slice of heaven
Gorgeous view from terrace and breakfast room, beach closeby, down multiple steps. Discount on beach chairs and umbrellas. Personalized service, they tracked down my niece's luggage and arranged for it to be picked up, wonderful helpful and warm staff. Quiet area, easy walk to town, definitely want to return!!
A lovely hotel.
It has fabulous views across the bay from the terrace and a jacuzzi to cool down in when it gets too hot. This is not a flashy hotel, but thought has been given to making the guests visits comfortable from the jug of mineral water with lemon and mint always available at the bar, to the umbrellas by the door and the excellent quality bed linen. The staff are very friendly and attentive without being pushy. Christina and Romena speak excellent English and are particularly good at handovers, so anything which needs sorting is dealt with efficiently. There is a wide choice (especially for an Italian hotel) at breakfast including prosecco. Breakfast is very relaxed running from 8am to 11am and if you need to leave earlier they will provide a breakfast bag.
The hotel is outside the main centre in a residential area, so is very quiet. It is a short walk to the Centro Storico-about 10 mins. It is 160 steps down to the beach below. We spent 12 days there and would recommend it.
Sweet hotel in Tropea
Our stay at Rocca Della Sena was wonderful, mainly due to the exemplary service of Cristina and Romyna, who were very engaged and helped us navigate through the busiest season in Tropea. The hotel is lovely and right above the beach, and in a residential area, so it's quiet. I recommend that you splurge for the ocean view room because the view is spectacular.
Amazing views and location - lovely staff!
The hotel is in the perfect location - incredible views, short walk to beach and town, yet peaceful and quiet. Rooms are maintained to a very high standard. Highly recommend a room with private terrace and sea view - although the hotel terrace can be enjoyed by all guests with equally beautiful vistas. Additionally, the staff are incredibly helpful and cannot do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Tropea itself has much to offer - a picturesque centro storico, a plethora of places to eat and drink (prices are very reasonable), and an interesting history that we learned about during a very informative walking tour. Lovely place!
Vist to Calabria
We spent four nights here in mid-July. We had high expectations, not only because of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and other places but also since the hotel had contacted us ahead of our stay to ensure all our needs could be met.
Not only were our expectations fulfilled, they were exceeded. The hotel is located in a residential (and therefore peaceful) part of Tropea. The noise and hubbub of the historical centre is only a short stroll away. Thus, the visitor can experience the best of both worlds.
The hotel is welcoming, friendly and relaxed. A special mention should me made for Christina and Romana. They are the perfect examples of what good hospitality is all about. As you can probably tell, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Final tip: It’s worth taking Christina’s advice on where to eat In Tropea. Her recommendation was the best of all the places we ate in and we chose the others ourselves.
