I have just returned from a trip with friends to Southern Italy and we stayed at this hotel. My two friends have been there before, but I had not. I can’t stress enough how lovely the owners are, they can’t do enough for you even though I speak no Italian (aided where necessary by our companion who could). The best... More

Spent one night at the hotel. Yes, it was November, not high season, the hotel was nearly empty yet open. There was limited amount of hot water, we had problems in opening the room (no battery), there was actually no breakfast, only coffee and heated croissants. In spite it all that they charged 100 euros. Perhaps in season they are... More

For my experience I highly recommend the Esperia Hotel. I couldn't fault it. The food is out of this world and everything you eat is fresh, including all the fruit and vegetables which are grown in its surrounded private property. The beach is only a stone throw away. The swimming pool is amazingly big and always spotless. My room had... More

This hotel looks nice on the outside. During our vacation, we reviewed other hotels, would go to Hotel 501 in Vibo instead. For the price it is not worth it.
