Beautiful beach setting with a great spa! Useless concierge.

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Joe Families - 06/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Great property; beach, pool and spa are fantastic. Food is average to good. Location is awesome to explore towns in the vicinity, but do your homework before hand since the advertised concierge support doesn’t exist.

bad management

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Discover48883673830 Family - 05/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

The change of management from Cinzia Montelli to Antonio Barbieri is not good for the Capo Vaticano Resort. The General Manager is never present at the hotel (Villa Paola?) And nowhere else than planning corporate events. Only his assistant Fredericca Di Bella was there! Bad service in the restaurant and poor quality of the food. The food has deteriorated in quality over the last year. During our stay every weekend company events were carried out with loud disco music until late at night. Sleeping was impossible! The drink prices at the Stromboli bar are too high. Beer 0.5 liter 11, - Euro, cappuccino 7, - Euro, Pizza Margaritha of poor quality 16, - Euro! The manager manages to downgrade the hotel through mismanagement! This was our fourth stay at the Capo Vaticano Resort and with the worst off! The management is also advice-resistant! The answers of the reviews are answered with bad translation programs. The hotel could be the best hotel in Calabria in this very nice location with a different management!

Dear Mr. or Mrs. Discover488, thank you for your time in sharing your concerns, we realize that you just joined the TripAdvisor community, allow us to highlight that the General Manager assistant is not Mrs. Di Bella, who is our reservation manager and we strongly doubt that you could have met Federica because she is on a maternity live since the first weeks of June and our reservation department is not based within the Resort but in our headquarter. However, please do write personally to the email address of Mr. Barbieri, h8090-gm@accor.com, that he will be more than happy to talk to you and take personally care of your next stay at the Capovaticano Resort Thalasso SPA, and to listen about your experience. Regarding the price of the cappuccino you are right, it's a printing mistake, while for the beer that you highlight it is a local artigian not filtered beer, you could have chosen a national beer like Nastro Azzurro that cost less. Do accept our apologize for any error of grammar you may find in our answer, do accept our languages barrier. We believe that it is an act of courtesy writing to our guest in their idioms. Looking forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you back soon at the Capovaticano Resort Thaòlasso SPA MGallery Hotel Collection and have the chance to better serve you during your future stay. Yours faithfully Antonio Barbieri h8090-gm@accor.com

The hotel concept, architecture, garden, swimming pool and location are really great. We had an excellent time, enjoyed the quality of the breakfast, the size of the room with sea view. The general atmosphere was also nice, mainly due to the staff being always very attentive.

Loved the facilities but the sit down dinner experience was frustrating. The food was great, but the service was disorderly, delayed, and without any apologies. The location, the view, the spa facilities were all great.

Hotel's focused on adults which is a great plus when you want to relax. The food (breakfast and dinners) is OK but it could be more local dishes, fruits and veggies. The beach is cleaned and maintenanced well.

The Stromboli by night was a trip that was introduced to us by the hotel . The experience of this was a very bad one . The trip was raining so we didn't experience anything but a low grade plate of pasta and no Valcano viewing . We were upset that the trip wasn't cancelled and money refunded .

QbaWarsaw Family - 01/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

We spend family week-long holidays at Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa. We enjoyed the beach and the sea - with sunbeds available at anytime, with great views and in general comfort of the hotel and its amenities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Meals were good enough to satisfy different tastes of whole family. This could have been our best summer holiday experience if not one thing... Air conditioning at the hotel did not work properly - during daytime heat it provides proper cooling (unless you need to get really cold), but during night we could not get room temperature below 23-24 Celsius. My older son and wife slept quite well, but myself and 8-year old son had some trouble sleeping. Air conditioning, producing barely a light breeze had to work through whole day with windshields closed to get to the 23-24C in the evening, which is above usual sleep comfort zone of 18-20C. Definitely something to improve, especially that staff informed me this was just our room issue, but hotel-wise.

A comfortable hotel with a large swimming pool and a good private beach

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Mina Couples - 09/07/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Our initial experience as we checked in was rather disappointing because of a number of misunderstandings during the reservation. The reception staff were polite but overall appeared inexperience and not very helpful. The breakfasts always had a surprise element and were pretty inconsistent; we were never sure whether we would be attended to or given the right drink. Our experience was enhanced by two people: 1- one of the assistants, Denis (who was undertaking various duties at the hotel including working as a porter). He was personable and had a very positive and helpful attitude. He is asset to the hotel and deserves recognition. 2- As we understood a new addition to the team, a personal trainer, Lorenzo. He knew his subject, was very good with people and was able to draw a crowd with different abilities and encourage them to exercise while enjoying the environment. He was polite and professional and we enjoyed his classes and our interactions with him. He makes a valuable contribution and brings something special to there hotel. He was one of the few staff at he hotel who could converse well in English.

Dear Madame, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa - MGallery by Sofitel. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback, with special mention! I will report it, and compliment Denis and Lorenzo. We are sorry to understand a lack of Professionality, and we would like to assure you we will punt in action all your comments. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be more pleasant. Sincerely, Cinzia Montelli General Manager

B. A. Business - 05/07/2018 AccorHotels certified review

Had a pleasant stay in Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa - MGallery by Sofitel. I stayed 8 nights at this hotel during a business trip and hotel facilities was in general very good, nice pool area and direct access to the beach. All outside areas are in immaculate condition and well looked after. Nice standard room with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. TV channels OK but very limited with English speaking channels and no movies etc. WiFi speed is also not very good and especially thinking of the room rates this should be at a high level. I had breakfast and dinner included and in general food was OK, very repetitive and limited options especially for breakfast, there should have been options for omelets, fried eggs, soft boiled eggs, bacon that was actually fried/grilled, etc. Sometimes at dinner time it was long delays before empty dinner items was replenished as this is a buffet style dinner. Lobby bar was only open once during my stay which was a shame. This is an upmarket hotel in this area but is let down with access from any main road, signage to hotel is very poor and infrastructure in way of roads are terrible.

Beautiful resort!

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

wouters715 Couples - 03/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

The resort is absolutely stunning. From arrival to departure you’ll feel like you’re in paradise. The rooms (we’ve got an upgrade to a sea view room) are spacious, clean and nicely decorate. The spa, pool and beach are gems. The only downside is that one is obliged to go half board, meaning one has to dine at the buffet. The buffet is ok, but I personally prefer an a la cart option as well and go with bed and breakfast instead. Nonetheless: very recommendable!!

Meliymay Couples - 24/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

I thought I was in Hawaii not italy ...... a wonderful experience , fabulous hotel/ resort .. the room was amazing but there are a few things that need attention . The breakfast is a buffet ... that was very hit and miss , items rarely replaced and it was defiantly ' first come first served ' .The evening meal was not what you would expect from a luxury hotel . The first night of our three night stay was ' fish night ' and that is literally all there was to eat ....... as a lifetime vegetarian and a husband who doesn't eat fish ,so this was indeed very disappointing. The manager realised that it was an error on their part did offer to make us something but it was just easier to go out . The evening food was really not up to scratch and we actually went out every night . Note the spa( which is magnificent) is only open in the afternoon and there is only one running machine in the gym .
