Italians don’t bestow titles like the “Coast of the Gods” easily, so you can presume that the Costa degli Dei is going to be impressive, and you’d be right to. Many Mediterranean civilizations have passed over these storied shores, leaving behind a tapestry of archaeological sites, cultural heritage and traditional cuisine.
Known as the pearl of this 34-mile stretch of coastline, Infinity Resort Tropea frames its southern Tyrrhenian Sea views with some of Calabria’s best beaches. It then adds panoramic terraces over the sea rocks, outdoor swimming pools and even its own stretch of private beach from which to enjoy the views. Inside, it’s just as cool and contemporary – you’ll soon notice an all-white theme here – with four-star facilities and local Calabrian ingredients used to create the dishes of the day.
Clean lines and yet more of those white walls make the sea views the real focal point in the guest rooms and suites at Infinity Resort Tropea. As contemporary as they are minimal, designer touches are integrated with your favorite gadgets, from flat-screen TVs and minibars to chromotherapy showers.
With the hotel’s all-white theme determining the decoration of the walls, tables and even tablecloths in the restaurant, it’s up to the cuisine to provide some color. Fortunately, the Calabrian dishes do this in style, with local ingredients and a meticulous approach to presentation. Fish is the specialty here, and it’s best enjoyed on the terrace with a view of the Costa degli Dei, before an after-dinner cocktail under the stars.
With its varied landscape, Calabria mixes it up for nature lovers with mountains, forests and canyons all at your disposal at the nearby Sila, Aspromonte and Pollino national parks. It’s the beaches that most head to Tropea for, though, and you’re perfectly placed to enjoy Rotunda, Convento and Passo Cavalieri. Mini cruises set out from the port of Tropea for the archipelago of the seven Aeolian Islands too, in particular Stromboli, while the Vibo Valentia-Pizzo train station takes care of all of your inter-regional travel and is 15 miles from the hotel.
How to Get There
We stayed at Infinity and it was perfect! The architecture of the hotel is beautiful and compliments the landscape. The room was always clean and had a fresh and light fragrance, and it had it’s own garden with a beautiful view of the coast of the gods. We had the option of breakfast and dinner in the evening. Breakfast was a great way to start off the day, a wide selection of food and pastries (also tea/coffee). Compliments to the chef for creating delicious and original creations every evening! And also to the waiting staff and hosts, who were so friendly and welcoming! We would like to thank all the staff for their assistance and dedication for a memorable stay! We would definitely come back and we highly recommend this resort! 😊
Fantastic resort, amazing restaurant, the best breakfast. Beautiful place with nice pool and private rocky beach. Secure parking, lovely rooms with own outdoor space. Better than any other 4* hotel we have had over the past 2 weeks.
We were given a room upgrade when we arrived. Our room was very large with a panoramic window which was not overlooked. The bathroom was well stocked. The pool was well stocked with beds and umbrellas. There was a nice outside pool bar where the staff were very attentive and bought refreshments to the sunbeds. We had a fabulous meal at at the hotel restaurant, the sword fish steaks were the thickest we'd ever had and were cooked to perfection. Breakfast buffet was well presented, plentiful and delicious.
The hotel is nice and cosy. Dinner was excellent. Breakfast was basic.
Our first room was humid and not very clean. We recommend a room with balcony (first floor). Views are fantastic : Stromboli at sunset.
There is no elevator in the hotel. Pool area as well as private beach were great. It was disappointing that there were no lavatories at the beach ; one had to climb a lot before reaching the pool level.
Personnel is friendly, especially at the restaurant.
Transfer to Tropea 5 euro pp.
We spent two weeks at the Infinity Resort. Overall this is a very good hotel with nice views and a relaxing atmosphere. Dinner is in an outside restaurant (under a roof) with view on the pool. Dinner was generally speaking good and relaxing. The personnel at the restaurant is friendly and professional. The only negative comment is the fact that the hotel allows guests to smoke (even in the dinning area under the roof) and has no separate area for smokers. This is really annoying for non-smokers (and would be considered as a criminal offence in most countries). In order to get a 5 star rating, the hotel really needs to do something about this since it is not acceptable to have smokers in the dinning area. The personnel is generally speaking friendly (in particular those at the restaurant/bar) although the personnel at the reception needs some more professionalism. We booked a superior room for three persons. Unfortunately we initially received a room for two persons with very small extra bed (with a tin mattress - only suitable for very small children) for our 9 year old daughter. When we asked for a real bed, we were initially told by the reception personnel that no other beds were available. When we continued complaining, the reception personnel finally accommodated our request and we were given a real third bed. Rather a pity that we needed to complaint to get a real third bed. The reception personnel also made another error when we booked a trip to the Eolian Islands: they did not tell us that the pick up for this trip was on the street (in-stead as at the hotel itself as for the other trips) and we therefore missed our trip to the Eolian Islands despite waking up at 6h30 am.
The rooms are comfortable although they lack some area for storage of cloths and luggage. Our room also had a nice terrace with sea-view.
The hotel has a very nice pool with enough sunbeds. It is also possible to relax under the palm trees if you are looking for shade. The hotel also has a private (rocky) beach which is a short walk downhill.
In conclusion this is a very good hotel which has all it needs for a relaxing holiday. The professionalism of the reception personnel needs some improvements. The hotel should also reconsider its policy regarding smoking in the dinning area since this is really not acceptable for non-smokers (the hotel's smoking policy would even be considered a s criminal offence in most countries since passive smoking can result in cancer for non-smokers).
