Overview Reviews
The Capovaticano Thalasso & Spa is a member of the MGallery collection. Located just 6.2 miles (10 km) from Tropea, the top destination on one of the most beautiful coasts in Italy in the heart of Calabria. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Stromboli volcano and Aeolian Islands. It's difficult not to be captivated by the views from the headland, the wild, unspoiled surroundings and the crystal clear sea, which make Capo Vaticano the perfect spot for sub-aqua enthusiasts.
8.0 Excellent
Cons: Food was mediocre
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was on high level, room, beach, spa, pools, food:)!
Cons: Outside the reception desk not everyone understands english.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It’s an amazing property and location. Awesome beaches and the spa facilities are first class.
Cons: Most of the restaurant staff were unhelpful and almost an annoyed attitude with guests, to the point of mumbling under their breadth, apart from the American accented restaurant floor manager Giaccomino (definitely spelt wrong) who stood alone as a professional operator!! The fact that the resort was plagued with blackouts didn’t help for a mediocre experience in the restaurant.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property and location are amazing.
Cons: The road to the property and nearby villages.
9.6 Excellent
Cons: Booked much in the advance and asked for the possibility to be placed in the same room as year ago, unfortunately after arrival different room was offered. Also, if compared to year ago, food is worst.
6.7 Good
Pros: The breakfast was good and tasty. The hotel is ideal for a relaxing stay without leaving.
Cons: The hotel's location is in a relatively isolated location, surrounded by steep mountains to climb up and visit Capo Vatican on foot practically impossible. Since we were without a car, to visit Tropea or other historical sites was possible only on taxi, which in October was very expensive.The hotel administration and owners should consider the provision of transportation to nearby towns, as public transport buses are not there. The staff of the reception after the application to repair the faulty shower faucet-promised repair, but did not fulfill their promise.
7.5 Good
Pros: Breakfast and dinner were good. Excellent for the price.
Cons: Hard to get hot water for a baby bottle or to heat baby food. Dinner from 7:30 PM on was too late. To pay extra for a 2nd use of the spa, no kids accepted. Old rusty playground.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved this family run Agriturismo,. Their care shown to us far exceeded our expectations. Our evening meal was prepared and cooked specifically for us. Our stay was like having our own serviced villa. A tasty and beautifully presented breakfast was served on a lovely open verandah with the most magnificent seaviews with panoramic vistas of Siciliy and Stromboli. We really enjoyed every aspect of our far too short stay at this wonderful place. Totally recommend this idyllic place in the sun!
Cons: Our stay was too short!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice views! Probably best pizza in Italy! Rooms simple but clean.
6.7 Good
Pros: It was the apoartment with two bedrooms, we had terrace with beautiful sea and mountain view. There was very calm around despite a loud music from hotel nearby. The parking places were nearby from our apartment. We had a dinner in the restaurant that was located in the territory it was good, Alexandro recommended us very tasty fish:-).
Cons: The equipments on the kitchen were old enough. The automatic gas stove fire didn’t work, owner didn’t have any other special things to fire it and hi gave us his own cigarette lighter and ask to return him it wasn’t comfortable to use it in gas stove at all. We expected to have “agricultural” breakfast but mostly there were products from a shop (maybe only tomatoes from the garden). The breakfast wasn’t very numerous (cheese, ham, bread).

Pros: Amazing hotel. Lovely people, delicious breakfast. Beautiful room with great seaview. So peaceful. Amazing restaurant in evening :-) Will definitely return.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Pool area was nice and surroundings were nice. The beach was good.
Cons: The room had only one small window. The humidity in the room was unbearable, everything from linen to towels were wet. There was lack of light in the room. The food in the hotel was terrible... Coffee- terrible, juices- water with some kind of powder.. Everything cost extra- beach towels, sunbeds, transport to the beach ( it was not written on booking.com). There was no toilet at the beach and the shower was broken. We checked out before our booked date. The receptionist didn't even ask why we are leaving.
6.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful location and beach
Cons: Our bed & breakfast arrangement sadly didn’t include breakfast. Would recommend to double check this in your reservation. The lunch buffet is also quite pricey for what you get, especially compared to the restaurants near the venue. Lastly the rooms could be more hygienic.

6.7 Good
Pros: It was clean and roomy for 2 adults & 2 children. The pool is is great.
Cons: The apartment wasn’t really safe for children. The power point next to the fridge was sticking out of the wall. There wasn’t enough cutlery or cooking equipment- no cork screw or bottle opener etc. The staff at reception couldn’t or wouldn’t really provide any information for the area to restaurants, buses to Tropea or train time tables.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: We were there for 8 days and rent 2 rooms apartments (2 rooms + kitchen, apartments #15). Good equipped apartments with everything we need (furniture isn't new but looks ok and works). Hairdryer we asked at reception and they gave it to us. Big balcony (2 floor) with amazing sea view - we used it for breakfast and dinner. Close to the beach and they provide free chairs and umbrella there. Also there is a pool in their hotel near - Grottichelle. Restaurants are also close. Enough parking places, clean and green territory. There is exist tennis court near. Helpful stuff - especially I want to say THANKS to Julia (support's Russian tourists in the hotel). She answered all our questions, helped to have other apartments and even agree for us repairing of a wheel of our car.
Cons: Too many beds for 3 of us - 6 places (4+2). I booked it in order to have separate room for my son. Initially they provided us another 2 rooms apartments with just partial sea view - I don't know why because of nearly everything were free (beginning of June). One bedroom has great sea view but another has just small window in a corner. You should pay additional 10 EUR per person if you want to have towels. There were no change of towels and linens during our 8 nights of stay.

Pros: large, modern and very clean room
Cons: 20 min walk to the beach, tiny breakfast, no Restaurants in the area
7.5 Good
Pros: We have booked Hotel Umberto hotel, but have been living in Bed & breakfast Chloe.
Cons: Hotel is located far away from the city and from the nearest beach.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Aside the breakfast almost everything else. When we arrived, about 4:30 PM, the rooms were still not ready and we were told to come back in 1 hour. We were completely disappointed with our room in the attic. It was small, old furniture, small bathroom and low ceiling, completely not adequate for price of 100 EUR per night. Also from when we arrived until 11 AM next day there was no water due to malfunction of some equipment in the hotel. Also after they fixed the problem the water pleasure was changing all the time. So I can't recommend this hotel especially the rooms in the attic.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice value for money. Good breakfast.
Cons: Bathroom and the shower were a bit small.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: No elevator Parking 100 m below with bags you have to go up because there is not enough space to park outside the hotel one beach far away from the other, and paid shuttle service at a specific time Bathroom in the attic, very small, up to 190cm high I have 192 prysxnic practically impossible
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: The nature nearby was fine!
Cons: I booked 3 rooms for two days which means that my review counts more than one simple review! 1. Do not reccomend - all of the rooms booked were on the third floor at the attic with no more than 1×1 space, and if you are taller than 1.70 m you practically should keep your head low to enter the bathroom! It gave you a bad feeling to even breath! 2. The shower was not functioning in one of the rooms (lets say it happens) and while in first night it was too late to arrange ( 8 pm) but it appeared so difficult even at the second day!! Moreover the staff was not polite to address the problem! 3. They do not changed the towels but what was disgusting is the fact that they do not say this but instead put the towels from the floors to the bed pretending to be cleaned! When i told to the reception they just replied ohhh we do not change them so what is the problem?? 4. You can wait for hours to make check in and out at their working hours so check first with them for the time you are arriving
7.5 Good
Pros: We liked the fact that we got a better room than we booked and that we got the access to the bicycles. Also, the standard in our room was good, location peaceful and the view from the terrace - nice! Staff was helpful and answered our questions and requests
Cons: The bicycles were not in the best shape and the breakfast mostly sweet with not many veggies (but we asked for the tomatoes and we got them!:)) Also, the dishes - not too clean and the shower a little bit difficult to use - cause of the size and the design the water was easily splashed on the floor Unfortunately, we experienced some difficulties with the wi-fi (slow during the day)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is clean and very well managed. Very good interior with automated systems (light, card lock, power switch). I had feeling like it is 4 stars hotel, not 3 as it is officialy. Room pleanty of space, nice balcony, modern bathroom... breakfast is excellent, everything fresh and nothing missing. Personel polite and profesional.

5.8 Okay
Pros: It was a beautiful place and hotel.
Cons: It was in a remote location you need a vehicle to go anywhere and be able to speak Italian as no one wanted to speak English until they wanted money. There were 3 beaches and free shuttles to them for guests but all notices we’re in Italian and no one told us, we found out by luck. Their sister hotel was in a beautiful beach front location with friendly English speaking staff. This hotel is no where near a beach. No restaurants apart from site one within walking distance unless your super fit. I paid for taxes etc in advance and had proof in hand but they made me pay it again at the end of the holiday when all of a sudden several staff could speak English.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and cozy, very welcome after the last hotel fiasco. Staff was extremely helpful and gracious
6.0 Good
Pros: The location was good, cleanliness excellent, pool great
Cons: The restaurant service could be improved, it does seem to match the surroundings and the overall level of the facilities.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The entire stay was great! The rooms are spacious and clean. Nice big balcony. Lots of selection for breakfast. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Gorgeous beach! Would definitely recommend.
Cons: The walk from the beach to the resort is difficult. Very steep. They should have a buggy system that people can use. The other issue with this place to be careful of is the drive from Messina especially if you are driving at night . You have to drive on offroads which are extremely dangerous because you cannot see anything and what is barely a one way road....is actually a two way!! Driving during the day is better but still very nerve wracking! Be cautious and drive while there is still daylight!!!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: kind friendly staff, clean facilities.
Cons: I highly recommend travelling in the daytime to the location, from Messina the roads are terrible. A cart should be available to have access to and from the beach. I highly recommend to add fresh fruit at breakfast.

Cons: Ants in the rooms and the bed was worn

7.1 Good
Pros: It was very family friendly. We liked the entertainment for the kids. The front desk ladies were helpful and professional. The rooms were spacious and very clean. It was very quiet.
Cons: The service in the restaurant was lacking. Extremely disorganized and a dinner took over three hours. The parking garage is horrendous and backing out of it was a nightmare. The stairway by the front desk is poorly lit and a safety hazard. The beach is ok but not as nice as the other nearby beaches. The water was clear but rocky. The air conditioner was not cold enough and the hairdryer was very weak.
7.9 Good
Pros: - Very kind and helpful personnel. - Hotel itself is good for the price ,especially for Italian standards:) - Room was clear. - Nice and clean pool! - Great private beach- you can find some privacy on evenings:) - You can ask for transfer from/to train station which is very nice:) - Good breakfasts:)
Cons: 1) Room cleaning costs 5 euros extra. 2) Our biggest disappointed was dinner at the beach restaurant (pictures attached): - menu was very limited - it is very pricey - portions are very small - and the food itself is very average at most - we had very unpleasant surprise during the payment: after the ‘main’ dish we got two small portions of fruits which we did NOT order. We thought it was a nice welcome gift. What was our surprise– those two small portions of fruits – that we did NOT order – cost us 10 euros! If want to eat well there are excellent restaurants nearby. One we can especially recommend is Peppino il pescatore for the similar money we had an amazing dinner with one of the greatest sea foods and spaghetti that we had in our lives!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is awesome! Staff extremely friendly
Cons: Few things could be improved since I travel few times a year to destination point with my family and I noticed that the beds are extremely hard and the pillows are literally flattened Also I noticed that during breakfast most of the hot items were cold because there wasn’t any sterno fuel heat underneath to keep the product warm!! I think also a towel Booth service without the extra charge would it be great using the same concept that other hotels in the area like the Rocca Nettuno in Tropea does giving towels cards to be returned at the front desk at the checkout, if you miss a card you are end up paying for the missing towel only , and I agree that this is fair!! I paid 10 euro for each beach towel and it was the first time I had to do that!! Also if you stay there and need to iron shirts make sure to call front desk to have the shirt done by the service they. Don’t have the iron set in the room !! I was born and raced in Calabria and I always like to give my impression and give constructive criticism and feedbacks in order to help improve our beautiful beachside S and breathtaking coastline!!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Professional staff at reception
Cons: Restaurant is average
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was very well located next to an impressive beach. However, what really standed out was the friendly staff. We had travelled with our 1 1/2 years daughter and sometimes is not easy to be well received. Antonio from the restaurant made us feel at home all the time, taking care of every detail. The restaurant team Ana and Antonio were always super friendly with our kid and played with her. The whole environment was really family friendly and there was a great energy around. How to forget the radio and l’ animazione di Aurora and Leticia! :) great fun!
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location is amazing, near the beach, amazing place to watch the sunset at the beach. The hotel territory is nice, the swimming pool is pretty big.
Cons: The garbage near our building smelled as hell. We booked a lux apartments, and had to keep the windows close all the time because of the smell. Another strange thing was the towels. We got 2 towels for 3 people (apartment was booked for 3), and when we asked for one more, we were told that we have to pay for it 10 EUR. During the breakfast there were long periods of time (up to 0,5 hour), when the eggs were out, and they did not bring new ones. The same - about the dishes and forks. In this hotel you pay more, than in normal ones, and get for these money less, than in normal ones- We haven't tried other hotels in region, maybe they are ever worse. But this one is definitely not worth the money.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff at Ipomea club is what takes this property to a higher level of service. They were accommodating with service, professionalism and most importantly with smiles. Staff are above other hotels we had stayed at for our 3 week holiday ,hopefully management are aware of the jewels that they have. The property is perfect with a restaurant right on the beach with beautiful sunsets. The food is excellent and plentiful with full course service for breakfast lunch and dinner.
7.1 Good
Pros: Perfect view and excellent breakfast! Rooms very clean.
Cons: I have been at Ipomea 3 times before and always excellent. However this year my stay was disappointing. I did not recognize the 4 star hotel anymore. The lovely pool was dirty and many tiles were missing. Beds are very hard. The animation team was terrible, complete lack of energy and manners. Complete unacceptable was the evening singer, who did not realize that we understood every insult he made in italian.
7.1 Good
Cons: Children activities were not properly organised.

Pros: Very good quality Price ratio. Hands down for the Host that really makes the expérience! She works 24/7 and with a wonderful smile. Try the farm to table bacon for breakfast. Beaches around capo vaticano are fairly busy but absolutely gorgeous. If you want a worldtop swimming expérience, swim along the cape itself!
Cons: Smell of the plumbing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: -The location-just in the center, around 3 min walk to the supermarket, 10-till faro; 15 - to the beach. The area is touristic and this there are many restraurants nearby and always pleasant to do a promenade in the evening -There is a free shuttle bus tip-from the sea which is very convenient when you go from the sea, since the path is up and by foot it would take rather long and difficult especially on the sun. -spacious and well equipped room - the hotel itself is freshly redecorated - good choice for breakfast and many fruits
Cons: For two days there were no ham&cheese for breakfast (supposedly, nobody refilled them when it was all gone or not bring it) , so there were no choice for those who do not like sweet breakfast (croissants/jams/cookies) The hotel’s workers don’t speak English which was ok for us since we spoke a bit Italian but may be troublesome for those who not
5.8 Okay
Pros: Personal was very helpful and kind.
Cons: Four star hotel - nobody speaks a word in english, thank god for google translator. Room and the hotel was quite obsolete. No anti-mosquito messurments - very important. It is not funny to chase the mosquitos in the room and cant open the window at night when you would like to sleep. No internet wifi in the room! The worst thing experience was breakfast. The Calabrians probably eat mostly just sweets, almost no fruits, no vegetables. I dont get it when you see what quality they have at the markets. In the hotel of four stars, you expect some diversity and quality of the food not this terrible sweet madness of nothing. I would highly recommend the owner to send their stuff to learn even the basics of english and the basic European standard in service. Not even close.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a fantastic time at the hotel and would recommend it. The staff and the owners are so welcoming.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are nice, clean, with amazing views. The breakfast is continental and rich. The location is very good, in the center, near the local supermarket and close to the best restaurants and a chic bar. Short walk to the Faro. 10-12 minutes to the beach or ask for the driver. The pool is clean. The staff is very attentive and kind and they do their best to meet the customers' demands.
Cons: The wi-fi doesn't work in the rooms. The cleaning isn't done daily.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff was so kind and caring, kindly agreed to late checkout which allowed us to have another morning by the beach. Nice showers, comfortable beds
Cons: Very basic breakfast but expectations were low so wasnt a big disappointment

Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Stromboli volcano and Aeolian Islands. It's difficult not to be captivated by the views from the headland, the wild, unspoiled surroundings and the crystal clear sea, which make Capo Vaticano the perfect spot for sub-aqua enthusiasts.
8.0 Excellent
Cons: Food was mediocre
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was on high level, room, beach, spa, pools, food:)!
Cons: Outside the reception desk not everyone understands english.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It’s an amazing property and location. Awesome beaches and the spa facilities are first class.
Cons: Most of the restaurant staff were unhelpful and almost an annoyed attitude with guests, to the point of mumbling under their breadth, apart from the American accented restaurant floor manager Giaccomino (definitely spelt wrong) who stood alone as a professional operator!! The fact that the resort was plagued with blackouts didn’t help for a mediocre experience in the restaurant.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property and location are amazing.
Cons: The road to the property and nearby villages.
9.6 Excellent
Cons: Booked much in the advance and asked for the possibility to be placed in the same room as year ago, unfortunately after arrival different room was offered. Also, if compared to year ago, food is worst.
6.7 Good
Pros: The breakfast was good and tasty. The hotel is ideal for a relaxing stay without leaving.
Cons: The hotel's location is in a relatively isolated location, surrounded by steep mountains to climb up and visit Capo Vatican on foot practically impossible. Since we were without a car, to visit Tropea or other historical sites was possible only on taxi, which in October was very expensive.The hotel administration and owners should consider the provision of transportation to nearby towns, as public transport buses are not there. The staff of the reception after the application to repair the faulty shower faucet-promised repair, but did not fulfill their promise.
7.5 Good
Pros: Breakfast and dinner were good. Excellent for the price.
Cons: Hard to get hot water for a baby bottle or to heat baby food. Dinner from 7:30 PM on was too late. To pay extra for a 2nd use of the spa, no kids accepted. Old rusty playground.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Pool area was nice and surroundings were nice. The beach was good.
Cons: The room had only one small window. The humidity in the room was unbearable, everything from linen to towels were wet. There was lack of light in the room. The food in the hotel was terrible... Coffee- terrible, juices- water with some kind of powder.. Everything cost extra- beach towels, sunbeds, transport to the beach ( it was not written on booking.com). There was no toilet at the beach and the shower was broken. We checked out before our booked date. The receptionist didn't even ask why we are leaving.
6.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful location and beach
Cons: Our bed & breakfast arrangement sadly didn’t include breakfast. Would recommend to double check this in your reservation. The lunch buffet is also quite pricey for what you get, especially compared to the restaurants near the venue. Lastly the rooms could be more hygienic.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved this family run Agriturismo,. Their care shown to us far exceeded our expectations. Our evening meal was prepared and cooked specifically for us. Our stay was like having our own serviced villa. A tasty and beautifully presented breakfast was served on a lovely open verandah with the most magnificent seaviews with panoramic vistas of Siciliy and Stromboli. We really enjoyed every aspect of our far too short stay at this wonderful place. Totally recommend this idyllic place in the sun!
Cons: Our stay was too short!

Pros: Nice views! Probably best pizza in Italy! Rooms simple but clean.
6.7 Good
Pros: It was the apoartment with two bedrooms, we had terrace with beautiful sea and mountain view. There was very calm around despite a loud music from hotel nearby. The parking places were nearby from our apartment. We had a dinner in the restaurant that was located in the territory it was good, Alexandro recommended us very tasty fish:-).
Cons: The equipments on the kitchen were old enough. The automatic gas stove fire didn’t work, owner didn’t have any other special things to fire it and hi gave us his own cigarette lighter and ask to return him it wasn’t comfortable to use it in gas stove at all. We expected to have “agricultural” breakfast but mostly there were products from a shop (maybe only tomatoes from the garden). The breakfast wasn’t very numerous (cheese, ham, bread).

Pros: Amazing hotel. Lovely people, delicious breakfast. Beautiful room with great seaview. So peaceful. Amazing restaurant in evening :-) Will definitely return.
