Hotel Residence Costa Azzurra
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in San Nicolo
Reviewed 4 September 2017

Loved our stay in Capo Vaticano and this friendly hotel. Took a bit of time to get used to the dining arrangements - on half board you get to chose whether to have lunch or dinner and chose which of the two choices to have on offer for starter and main. The food was good and we got used to the routine! The pool was spotless and just the right temperature - the pool bar is open all day until midnight (the pool is out of bounds after 7pm which is reasonable!) Most restaurants in the town are linked to hotels so there is not a huge variety of meals. The exception was da Mimma a great local restaurant with views over Stromboli if you go in the evening (Stomboli seems to disappear in the daytime) and only about 400 yards up the road from the hotel. There are 3 local beaches which are all great - the hotel shuttle bus services one of them - we found the other two just as good especially Santa Maria and the excellent Da Barbone fish restaurant overlooking the beach - you need a car as the walk is over a mile and it's uphill on the way back.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have balcony and great views and are larger

Back here as returning customer. Hotel was as nice as last time. Has a nice rustic Italian feel and nice and clean. Great views over the coast. Short walk to beach but very steep, hotel bus available though. Shops and a few restaurants near by.
Only thing that let it down this time was the quality of evening food (which you would not expect to question in Italy) and price of drinks.
Would recommend this hotel as B&B

A wonderful family friendly gem! Incredible food and service! Beautiful swimming area and gardens! Located a short walk from the hotel's beach and a very short bus ride to beautiful Tropea. Shuttle service is also offered by hotel.

We found it a very hard slog to stay here. First room offered was like a prison cell but they moved us later on. Took out a package for 7 nights for meals which we thought was OK but don't bother food very basic and the waiting staff are rude. We attended the calabria night and the waiting staff put your room number on the table no choice of where you would like to sit. They put us right next to the smoking hot barbecue which we refused to sit there and from then on we were treated like criminals. Reception staff ignorant bury their heads rather than even smile at you. We were treated very poorly I don't think I have ever felt so isolated we didn't want to eat here in the end and gave back our voucher. The only nice thing is the pool and gardens other than that I don't think it was worth the expense. You have to pay for a friDge, they put 2 euro service charge per person for everything our bill at the end just didn't tally up but for such poor waiting service told them noway and related train the miserable staff.

We stayed here last September for two weeks and it was one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. We had stayed in Calabria about nine years ago and loved it but we're able to fly from Manchester which was really easy, now we have to go to stansted, stay overnight and fly with Ryanair which was not a good experience (watch flights for 50p on u tube and you will understand what I mean!) however the hassle was worth it when we arrived at this delightful family hotel. We had the front room overlooking the beach which was small but worth it for the view. The receptionist Ursula was very helpful and efficient and we had a lot of fun with Franco the head waiter. The swimming pool is lovely and you can see the sea as you swim. The food is simple country cooking and there are different restaurants to try. There is not a lot to see or do but it is a beautiful unspoilt area and Tropea is worth visiting.

Room Tip: There are two new rooms with good views more expensive than the rest.
