The Residence is situated on the Capo Vaticano promontory, 9 Km from Tropea, in a peaceful position. We can admire suggestive sunsets of Isole Eolie and a splendid panorama of lights at night. This panorama goes from Golfo di Gioia Tauro until the Straits of Messina. This place is immersed in a rich and green vegetation, it offer large and wellfurnished rooms with terraces and private services. The relaxing and informal atmosphere, the familiar management, the nearness with the splendid beach of Capo Vaticano (Grotticelle) will really make an unforgettable and special holiday in Calabria.

Well above expectations for 3 star hotel. Stylish, well equipped apartment with nice view to the sea and olive tree garden. Wonderful beach 10 minutes by walk, with shuttle going every hour, sometimes more often. The only complain we had was room dirtiness the night we arrived,

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Groticelle beach. At lunch time, the waiter informed us that the kitchen was closed and they are only making pizza. We ordered pizza and drinks. The service was fast and the food ok.

I'm gonna start with the big plusses of the location, namely the pool, the helpfulness of the reception's staff and the way the cleaning service is performing their task. The room and toilet were clean at our arrival and have remained that way for our entire stay. Nevertheless,

We ordered a menu of the day. Lasagna was dry outside and cold inside, steak meat was tough. The octopus with no flavour, a bit chewy served with horrible "nuts mousse". French fries greasy and wet. Really poor for those prices. We would not recommend to anybody.

Response from dario c, Responsabile reception at Residence Hotel La Taverna
Responded 11 Sep 2017
Good morning, you paid 25€, and ask also for a discount. If you pretend the 3 Michelin stars, you will pay more, and eat less. So what? By the way, you left the review in our Hotel page. Thank you for nothing.

Quanto dista dal mare??? Inoltre il mare è pulito??
Il mare che si trova vicino al residence è stupendo, una spiaggia davvero unica. Ritengo che in piena estate sia affollata, io ci sono andata a giugno e settembre. Il residence dista circa 800 mt ma la strada è non molto agevole. A scendere verso il mare si può anche fare ma a salire è pesante. C’è comunque una navetta puntuale e veloce.

Dipende dalla sistemazione, nelle camere economiche non sono presenti zanzariere ed aria climatizzata. Nelle restanti camere è presente sia la zanzariera che l'aria climatizzata

Buongiorno, la spiaggia dista circa 500 metri, ed è raggiungibile con una navetta gratuita inclusa nel soggiorno. Il centro città è a circa 600 metri, e nei dintorni può arrivare in poco tempo (circa 15 minuti di auto) sia a Tropea che a Pizzo

"Apartment in newly built dependance."
"worth getting a sea view - it is spectacular"
"As the only seating area is on the balcony it is worth paying more for a sea view."
"Book an apartment not a room :)"
"Choose the depandance if you like to stay in a quiter area of the resort, far from the visitors and you are not looking for a shining room but for a nice view over Sicily!"
US$55 - US$186 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
