9.2 Excellent
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.
6.7 Good
Cons: Ants in the rooms and the bed was worn
Hotel Ipomea Club - Ricadi - Pool
4
8.0 Excellent (421 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Hotel Ipomea Club in Ricadi, you'll be on the waterfront, just steps from Spiaggia Santa Maria and a 3-minute drive from Grotticelle Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A train station pick-up service is provided at no charge (available 24 hours), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
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.

9.6 Excellent
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

7.8 Good (345 reviews)
5.0 Okay
Pros: breakfast the same daily
Cons: VILLAGGIO Calispera is a beautiful location, but with shortcomings, it offers nothing during rainy weather, and to use the pool forces you to wear "capelina" that offers it but it is not the only use, not the guarantee that it has been sanitized, the beach is somewhere down there. after descending 180 steps, and water with rocks. insufficient hygiene products (50 mg of shower gel)
7.9 Good

7.9 Good
Pros: Very quite, nice well kept facility, excellent food. Sports - Fitness club and tennis.
Cons: Arrogant staff at the reception desk. Services through the hotel overpriced, with heavy mark-up. Vicinity of the river could make the beach muddy after rain.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is lovely, as you are surrounded by beautiful gardens and the beach was calm and super enjoyable. The rooms are okay, I was expecting more for the price - though it was high season. Definitely take advantage of their private sailboat to enjoy the fantastic coastal view and sea from Cape Vaticano to Tropea (addition cost, but worth the money). Staff was friendly and accommodating.
Cons: Upon arrival we were offered a suboptimal room that was not suitable for a family of 4 ( open loft concept, bathroom was the largest room-odd). Was provided a more suitable room a few hours later. However we wasted a few hours packing and switching rooms, with no AC on in either room. Not a great start to a long travel day.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast and the dinner (full board) were very well prepared and the staff were very willing to please the children and their needs. The staff at the front desk were wonderful and incredibly helpful. We were very impressed.
Cons: In comparison to previous years, the room was quite small and the cleanliness was that what I expected.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: fantastic location, pool and beach! various restaurants in walking distance, also not far from Tropea and Capo Vaticano. very well maintained and clean "village"
Cons: I guess in summer this place is hardly affordable for families, so value for money isn't the best. but looking at what you get it is well worth it.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location was good, swimming pool good
Cons: The apartment was well below the expectations and the value for money absolutely not even closely there. Six people in a two bedroom apartment and single toilet, tiny shower and a bath with very poor access and a broken shower head. Furniture of about 15 years ago. Breakfast made of frozen croissant cooked in the oven, fruits from cans, not enough glasses, very poor quality juice. Restaurant quality mediocre. We paid the price of a 4 stars structure (considering the cost of living in Calabria) with the overall quality of a 2 stars one. We won't ever go back again.

7.1 Good
Pros: Nice location with good size simming pool and beach. Our son (6) loved it. We thought the music in the evenings was way too much - with one musician playing his songs in the bar, that completely interfered with the music from the animation team near by. Not very relaxing to say the least. Breakfast was ok. Dinner could have been better. Good restaurants near by though.

5.4 Okay
Pros: The best part of this hotel is the pool area! There is a shuttle bus to the Grotticelle beach and the hotel has sun beds for rent there. It is a walk of about twenty minutes. There is a very nice cafe/gelateria on the opposite side of the street.
Cons: The rooms are very basic. The bathroom is tiny. The staff only speak Italian and didn’t really give you the service-minded feel. There is no map of Capo Vaticano and no information about nearby facilities is given. The neighborhood is very touristy and a bit boring and basic facilities like a bank and a farmacy is lacking. Tropea was nicer!
7.5 Good
Pros: The office staff girls, were very helpful and very accommodating in booking hair appts and transport for us and they all had a pleasing nature
Cons: Breakfast was a sugar addicts delight so not much in the healthy variety. Set meals for lunch and dinner if wanted but not value for money. Additionally the pool controller was very rude when we brought our room towels to the pool. He stood over us and told us that room towels could not be used and you should go and buy our own towels. As we are from Australia and we have luggage restrictions when touring a towel is a luxury we are unable to include. We have travelled all over italy and have not had a problem in using our room towels. This hotel offered towels to us and then was going to charge us 20euros which they said would pay for the laundry costs. We declined

7.9 Good
Pros: Very quite, nice well kept facility, excellent food. Sports - Fitness club and tennis.
Cons: Arrogant staff at the reception desk. Services through the hotel overpriced, with heavy mark-up. Vicinity of the river could make the beach muddy after rain.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is lovely, as you are surrounded by beautiful gardens and the beach was calm and super enjoyable. The rooms are okay, I was expecting more for the price - though it was high season. Definitely take advantage of their private sailboat to enjoy the fantastic coastal view and sea from Cape Vaticano to Tropea (addition cost, but worth the money). Staff was friendly and accommodating.
Cons: Upon arrival we were offered a suboptimal room that was not suitable for a family of 4 ( open loft concept, bathroom was the largest room-odd). Was provided a more suitable room a few hours later. However we wasted a few hours packing and switching rooms, with no AC on in either room. Not a great start to a long travel day.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast and the dinner (full board) were very well prepared and the staff were very willing to please the children and their needs. The staff at the front desk were wonderful and incredibly helpful. We were very impressed.
Cons: In comparison to previous years, the room was quite small and the cleanliness was that what I expected.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location was good, swimming pool good
Cons: The apartment was well below the expectations and the value for money absolutely not even closely there. Six people in a two bedroom apartment and single toilet, tiny shower and a bath with very poor access and a broken shower head. Furniture of about 15 years ago. Breakfast made of frozen croissant cooked in the oven, fruits from cans, not enough glasses, very poor quality juice. Restaurant quality mediocre. We paid the price of a 4 stars structure (considering the cost of living in Calabria) with the overall quality of a 2 stars one. We won't ever go back again.
