Nydelig beliggenhet i en skråning ved enden av stranden i Scalea. Frokosten inntas i en svalgang omgitt med vegetasjon og med utsikt mot stranden - altså en fantastisk start på dagen. Rolig og avslappet stemmning. Kun en av personalet i respesjonen kunne snakke engelsk. Så lær dere noen italienske gloser :)
Beach, sea,water sports. Bella Italia held in the hotel during our stay. Internet was not working during our stay. Food in the restaurant leaves much to be desired.
Nothing really, it is stuck in a 1970s British Butlins timewarp. The original room we were provided was nothing like the website depicted. After complaining they attempted to make us feel obliged to them as they gave us an 'upgrade' which it was not.....they 'upgraded' us to what we thought we had booked. We disliked everything about this resort, if you would like details, give me a much larger text box. It was pure misery and we left 3 days early without even asking for a refund as we were in such a hurry to get away from there!
Hotel placed on the beach. I would expect that the 4 stars hotel is in better condition. Looks better on photos than in reality.
Only an overnight stay so unable to give lots of detail. Dining room closed when we arrived at 9.15 pm, this was main problem, Dining room closed too early
The Hotel is located close to the beach; there is nice swimming pool (the deep one so not occupied by small children). The old disigne comming from years 1970-1980; hardly possible to find english speaking staff; Generally so so service; a lot of people but they are unable to respond to any question without confirming it with the manger who is only one. They gave us 3-person room with additional bed instead of 4 person room, we booked. The staff in dinning room could not organize the table for us (what is funny enought because there is about 100-200 tables). It is hardly possible to sleep befor 1 am because of events ("show time", karaoke and so on); the air- conditionnig is (propably) as old as the disigne of the hotel and works in try and pray mode.
There was an additional pay (club card), the amount was not shown neither on the homepage of booking nor on the confirmation. This created irritation between us and the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and the hotel was right on the beach (w/ a view of the castle) and main street in Scalea. There was gated parking. The french restaurant nearby that the staff recommended had good food and service, and the staff there were very kind to our toddler son. The hotel served eggs for breakfast, the only hot breakfast offered among the 7 hotels we visited in central and southern Italy. Essentially, the hotel was basic. Room and common areas were somehat dated. Room itself was fairly small, though it did have a balcony and a view of the sea. Hotel and town were a little depressing in the off-season overall. We paid a similar price for far superior hotels in the other locations during our trip. However, the pickings were slim in the Maratea area on booking.com in November.
The family atmosphere, the caring attitude of each member of staff, the good humour, the interest they took in each guest, the kindness in doing everything possible to help with practical issues, such as driving me to the train station free of charge on my day of departure.
very good Hotel
Good location and friendly and helpful staff.
The hotel was located close to relatives who lived in nearby town. Front desk staff very helpful. Located on Tyrennian Sea and we spent an afternoon sitting in seaside chairs relaxing after a very long journey to Scalea. Nice pool. Easy walking distance into town.
I did not like anything about my stay. This hotel was not welcoming to nonItalian speaking guests. This hotel is not for the average tourist. It was more like a get away for families who live in the area. It was noisy and unfriendly. No one spoke English. If you compared the brochure I got in the lobby with the way the hotel was described on this site you would think it was 2 different hotels.
The location. Situated across the beach. Activities also for children nearby.
