Very beautiful resort for relaxation. Fabulous architecture of the hotel in the form of an Octopus. From top of the hills a beautiful view on the bay and the sea. Nice sea view rooms. Good service and hospitality. Dinner is perfect and you try the Spa and Thalasso treatments. An awsome place for relaxation😁.

Traveled with my wife and two daughters (11 and 13). The hotel is right on beach of Capo Vaticano. Water is fantastic, crystal clear with colors that are more typical of Sardinia than of Calabria. Animation is very soft, with Francesca very professionally leading several fitness activities throughout the day, both in the pool and on the beautiful hotel grounds.... More

The hotel has four stars, but in some respects it corresponds to five! He has a very good location right on the seafront, with its own Plage. The beach is very comfortable, the staff is delightful! Excellent restaurants, a good selection of wines. It's hard to find next to something better!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The ancients knew Capo Vaticano with the name of "Taurianum Promontorium", a name which, in Roman times, was changed to "Capo Vaticano". Vatican comes from "Vaticinium", Latin for oracle and response. According to the Legend, in a cave of the promontory of Capo Vaticano lived the Prophetess Manto, who gave advice and responses to mariners as to know the Will of the Gods before they would face the dangerous waters between Scylla and Charybdis. From the Prophetess, the rock "Mantineo" (from the greek "manteuo" give responses),which is located 200 meters off the Cape, takes its name. Located at the very south end of the Italian peninsula, in one of the most exclusive destinations of the beautiful "Costa degli Dei", Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa is nestled in the heart of the stunning scenery, facing the Aeolian Islands and the volcano Stromboli. The enticing, untouched nature and crystal clear waters make the Resort the ideal destination for those who love relaxation and water sports. The modern and minimal design, that inspires serenity, exalts the spacious 123 rooms all equipped with large terraces. At the Wellness Centre, Thalassa Sea & Spa, you will discover the benefits of thalassotherapy and you will benefit from personalized treatments. Once your energy is rediscovered, you will taste the refined cuisine of the restaurants "Mantineo" and "Stromboli". ... more   less
