We missed our train to Naples because the guy on duty couldnt organise a taxi and was even asking us for a taxi number. As soon as his replacement came on, we got a taxi straight away but it was too late and we had to play E300 to get to Naples in order to make our flight.
Everything! The hotel needs more advertizing ,show better the location.
shower and location. Air condition worked well. Pool entertainment no attendants on beach. No water for shower on beach.
The location of the hotel was perfect, central of Scalea and overlooking the beach with great views. The staff were friendly and eager to help you even though most didnt speak english. Overall a very enjoyable experience and i intend to stay there again in October. Only two members of staff spoke english and they need to vary the breakfast selection on a daily basis
The views from the room were excellent with sounds of the ocean lulling you to sleep at night. Staff were friendly. Shower had good water pressure. If people are expecting an LCD TV and the latest in furnishing this is not the place for you.
Staff was excellent. View was good. Jacuzzi should be heated . . .we know this may seem strange for an Italian hotel but an unheated jacuzzi is just weird
Quiet location, attractive setting, calm atmosphere, apparent high standards throughout, good views I checked out straightaway because the only room they could offer faced inwards and was at ground level. They were very nice and said there would be no canx charges. I am sure I would have been very happy if I could have had a better room. The lady on reception who handled the problem was superb.
Nice view of Scalea beach line down to Cirella island.Private beach with also a stony shore. We enjoyed looking at many kinds of fish around a stony shore.
Beach, sea,water sports. Bella Italia held in the hotel during our stay. Internet was not working during our stay. Food in the restaurant leaves much to be desired.
The Hotel is located close to the beach; there is nice swimming pool (the deep one so not occupied by small children). The old disigne comming from years 1970-1980; hardly possible to find english speaking staff; Generally so so service; a lot of people but they are unable to respond to any question without confirming it with the manger who is only one. They gave us 3-person room with additional bed instead of 4 person room, we booked. The staff in dinning room could not organize the table for us (what is funny enought because there is about 100-200 tables). It is hardly possible to sleep befor 1 am because of events ("show time", karaoke and so on); the air- conditionnig is (propably) as old as the disigne of the hotel and works in try and pray mode.
There was an additional pay (club card), the amount was not shown neither on the homepage of booking nor on the confirmation. This created irritation between us and the hotel.
Only an overnight stay so unable to give lots of detail. Dining room closed when we arrived at 9.15 pm, this was main problem, Dining room closed too early
Nothing really, it is stuck in a 1970s British Butlins timewarp. The original room we were provided was nothing like the website depicted. After complaining they attempted to make us feel obliged to them as they gave us an 'upgrade' which it was not.....they 'upgraded' us to what we thought we had booked. We disliked everything about this resort, if you would like details, give me a much larger text box. It was pure misery and we left 3 days early without even asking for a refund as we were in such a hurry to get away from there!
Hotel placed on the beach. I would expect that the 4 stars hotel is in better condition. Looks better on photos than in reality.
O Hotel Talao é maravilhoso desde à infraestrutura até os funcionários. Tudo muito limpo e funcional, com comodidades como o restaurante regional que serviu a comida mais deliciosa que provamos na Itália. Os funcionários (Sonia, Emilio) são super atenciosos e nos fizeram sentir como se estivéssemos em casa. Isso sem contar a piscina maravilhosa e a praia particular que foram pontos que nos fizeram escolher este hotel pela internet. Valeu a pena! Amei tudo, tudo. Sinceramente, não tenho reclamação alguma. Pelo contrário, fomos muito bem recebidos e a atenção foi especial principalmente porque meu pai é idoso.
I did not like anything about my stay. This hotel was not welcoming to nonItalian speaking guests. This hotel is not for the average tourist. It was more like a get away for families who live in the area. It was noisy and unfriendly. No one spoke English. If you compared the brochure I got in the lobby with the way the hotel was described on this site you would think it was 2 different hotels.
The location. Situated across the beach. Activities also for children nearby.
