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
This place is a gem in the south of Italy, clean rooms, beautiful location, private beach, you name it ....
unfortunately we’re in the south of Italy, where places are to dream of, but majority
Of people are lazy.
Yesterday we were at the pool and tried using the jacuzzi area. We asked a couple of the guys working at the bar by the pool to turn it on. The answer was they didn’t know how to and today was the life guard
Day off !!! So basically people could not use some of the amenities, he middle of August ( busiest time of the year), because the life guard had a day off !
Anyways, best hotel/location that I found so far in my trip riding my motorcycle in the south of Italy
All in all it’s okay..
- The breakfast (every day the same)
- The hotel as such (has already seen its best times)
- The staff (the reception is super friendly, but the waiters are really inattentive, you have to actively ask them for a coffee!)
- The pool area (super clean pool, but no music, the bar is never occupied, again you have to engage proactively if you would like to consume something)
- The “private beach” as they call it (not really a beach just a very rocky access point to the sea and not comparable with all the other beautiful beaches in the area around)
As I said you can perfectly summarize the hotel experience with the word OKAY.
We’ve never tried the restaurant because we read the bad reviews before and everything that can be consumed in the hotel is super expensive.. we always went outside to eat and drink.
What is really a pitty is the location.. it’s quite tricky to get around from here, I would recommend a Vespa or a car when staying here. Though the hotel offers free bicycle rental BUT you have to be aware that these are bikes in desperate conditions. And the path to the different locations is really hilly! We made use of the bikes, but it’s a real hassle! You can also take the train from Pargelia to Tropea, the station is very close, but the trains do not operate often.. that’s another annoying thing - without a car or a Vespa you are always dependent on a taxi which costs you 5€ per person for one way.
Wow... what a beauty so far from everything.
The resort itself has a great location. The view to the sea is really stunning.
My room was a superior one. Totaly satisfied. The garden and the pool area is really beautiful.
Breakfast is acceptable. Not a big shot but it is OK. The resort has a private beach but it is not the best to use. Long way to get down to beach (going up back will be really tireing :)) and it is very much rocky.
Staff is kind however don't seem to be too much professional.
Allow me one feedback to the hotel management: if there are people around the swimming pool and it is 30C and sunshine, put one staff to the beach bar. Nonsence that you can sit at the beach bar for half an hour without amyone asking what do you want to order. Guys you leave money in the guests' pocket that they want to spend!
Anyway all in all this is a perfect place. I loved to stay here and would come back any time.
