Reviewed 16 December 2011

My husband and I stayed here on the last night of our holiday around southern Italy. We had stayed in 5 different hotels on this trip and this was certainly one of the best.
We stayed her at the end of November, so it was off season, our room was very reasonably priced.
We were very impressed with our room. We had a large double bed and a single bed in the room. We were provided with towelling bathrobes. The bathroom was excellent with the usual european bathroom with bidet. The shower was enormous and had jacuzzi jets, it was really nice and had good pressure.
The balcony view was brilliant we took our chairs out onto the balcony and watched the sun go down.
Walked along the beach the next day and were amazed at how clear and blue the water was.
The staff did not speak English but I got by with my Italian, so was not too much of a problem.

We had booked this hotel on a whim, as we were becoming very weary of travelling back and forth from the beach to my husband's hometown....all I can say is WOW! We booked a quadruple room and were very pleased to see that the room was divided. Our queen side faced the sea and had a well sized terrace with a small table and chairs. What a great space to watch the sunset! It also had an outdoor laundry sink and a rack to rinse and our bathing suits and towels for another day on the beautiful beach! Walking out of our room was a small corridor which led to a second room with two single beds for our teens. This was great! Each room had its own TV and in the heat wave that we were having, the air conditioning was fabuloso! The bathroom was just beautiful! I will include a picture. I was extremely impressed by the young lady who welcomed us at the hotel. She was half the size of my son, saw that he was carrying many items and offered to carry his duffle bag. I think her name was Emilia....she was just wonderful, showing us the room and how to work air conditioning and explained the events at the hotel. Breakfast is very important to us....this one was fantastic....it included fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, cappucinno, warm chocolate filled croissants...the list goes on and on. We ate in the dining room with the pool (that we never had a chance to use) next to us. I would love to go back...but next time, for at least a week!!! Maybe two!!!

I've stayed here 9 days... The beach is very nice, water was like a fish tank.... Warm and perfectly clear. Many of the Staff at the hotel do not speak english, however, there are a couple that do. For those that don't, we figure it out in the Nicest way.

Food is very good, menu is usually the same. They will also go out of your way to make you whatever
you like(if it's possible).

Rooms are very well priced.

The *only* complaint I have has nothing to do with the hotel... There is no taxi service at all. Just one bus. Having said that, hotel staff have driven me in town whenever they could and arranged for my transfers between the train station and the airport.

I would come back again, only next time I'd fly to La Mezzia Terme and rent a car :-)

Ciao!!

We stayed at this hotel from June 20-25. Upon our arrival at the train station, the hotel provided free shuttle from there. Our room was ready when we arrived. Very clean and spacious. The sea view from our balcony was amazing! Restaurant/food was very good.
The beach is nice and clean and so is the pool.
There is a bus you can take to Amantea that picks you up at the hotel, or if you want, there are bicycles provided by the hotel. My husband rode one into town as there are no buses during siesta. It took him about 10 minutes.
The staff were very courteous and friendly- everyone from the cleaning staff to the front desk people. Gian Luca- especially- assisted us with our many requests (he spoke good english!). We thank you for all of your help!
If we every have the opportunity to come back, we will definitely stay here again!
Thank you to everyone at Hotel La Tonnara!
Deanna and Dustin.

We stayed for one night only en route between Sicily and Puglia and were pleasantly surprised to find this totally modern and civilised hotel with first class amenities - free wi-fi and a good restaurant - at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly and professional. In November, we didn't use the pool , but it looked nice and the beach was just across the road. Amantea too was a nice surpise - a real town with proper shops, not a closed-up resort with nothing open like so many places in southern Italy at this time of year. Comfortable bed, sparkling clean bathroom. Maybe a bit lacking in character, but that's not what we were looking for.

Recently traveled to Calabria to visit Lago and used Hotel La Tonarra as a home base. The staff was very accommodating and went to great length to ensure our stay was comfortable. I would recommend Hotel La Tonnara without hesitation.
