There where four key staff members, All working against EU working time directive. No pool or solarium as stated in your programme.I have photos to prove,They asked me to delite.Beach facilites not available second week due to bulldozers etc. Not happy;
Very friendly warm hotel where the staff were great Restaurant was always being used for external functions so apart from breakfast we could not use it
The hotel is beautiful and the staff is fantastic! From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like old friends! The location couldn't be better, and the hotel beach bar was a great place to spend the day. I am looking forward to coming back as soon as possible! If you want a truly luxurious experience away from the crowds of Reggio, stay at Villa Afrodite!
Friendly helpful staff even though it was end of season and very empty. 5 star rating is generous. Some of the decoration is of poor standard.
The staff were pleasant and helpful. The location (opposite the beach) was lovely. The shower was too small. The handle of the bathroom door needed attention
The staff were welcoming and friendly, with not many speaking English, but extremely keen to try. The hotel could not be closer to the beach, plus it is close to the station, great shops and restaurants. I am surprised it is a 4 Star rating as it is fairly basic. The restuarant is okay but basic and does not make use of the potential with the sea view.
Very clean room; very attractive property; good value for size of rooms and beautiful views from most of the rooms booked. One room--booked for Simonton--was not up to standard The breakfast the first day was somewhat stale with many insects buzzing around. Breakfasts after this were very nice, and the breakfast staff was prompt. The room at the end of the hall, booked for the Simontons, was substandard and not quite as promised. I "window" in this room opened into a staff utility room, with cleaning supplies, etc. The balcony was tiny; the view was not really over the beach, though the room was the same price (and promised similar views) as our rooms with much nicer balconies and views.
view and proximity to beach.
The buffet breakfast was poor. Due, I think, to lack of guests at this time of year.
Very good and carefull stuff, clean and large room with air conditioning, rich breakfast and beautiful seaview.
Good location with view over seaside and even Mt. Etna in the distance. Good stopover before crossing the Messina street by ferry. Bathroom clumsy and bit shabby. Expected " Free private parking" as stated on booking.com but instead was pointed to a dark public parking in front of the hotel. Also, beware of mosquitoes that were abundant.
Convenient to Messina ferry, Nice pool, Food average, Staff helpful, good value A little hard to find
In the bedroom 2 roach, cockroach, the room's furniture old, the safe not function, etc.
very good breakfast, really clean bathroom it is 4 star hotel but I can not imagine to stay there for the whole vacation, for one night it was ok
the hotel staff were not sevice minded.... newer this hotel agin!!!!!!!!
Great Hotel, Staff were great especially Valantio and Frank helped us out allot. Note Palmi transport isnt the best (calabria thing) these guys took care of us and got us to where we needed to be. Love Palmi, Love this place will come back again!
Quiet room. Inexpensive restaurant. In an out of the way place, got lost trying to get back to it later in the day. Had to pay for internet which didn't work very well. Jacuzzi bathtub didn't work. View from the balcony was blocked by part of the building.
location breakfast was poor, especially if you choose to get up late
Nice clean hotel. The food at the restaurant was not so good. Nothing nearby.
The excellent location and functionality of the hotel facilities except as outlined below. The lack of a restaurant and the internet access configuration which was unecessarily onerous and complicated.
Clean and comfortable with courteous staff. Totally lacking in character. No restaurant or bar.
the swimming pool is really great Through the airconditing system you receive cigarette smoke from other rooms, just disgusting! Also in the restaurant the food is of low quality and the different courses are served with no time in between so you need to hurry up when "enjoying" your meal.
- computer with internet available free of charge - new hotel, but could be better managed, poor breakfast
