In terms of value, I would say this didn't really love up to what it costs. It was absolutely beautiful; perfect beach, good amenities, clean pool and affordable options for water activities ie paddleboarding, free towel service, etc. But—when you're in the south of Italy, near Tropea, the land of delicious, sweet red onions, and Pizzo, known for their delicious truffle dessert—it's very disappointing that the food at the resort doesn't reflect this. Because it was offseason (end of September) only one restaurant was open for dinner and that restaurant happened to be the fine dining ristorante Mantineo. The food was prepared in advance, you could tell, and overall anticlimactic. Portions were insanely small—I understand this is a fine dining restaurant but when the food is not rich in flavor and small, it leaves you hungry. The beach bar Stromboli was open during the day, it was simply fine. It's not difficult to have basic items on the menu ie cozze vongole, aglia e olio, simply ragu. Not sure why the menu was overcomplicated and bad.
we were paying ~€20 a dish at dinner and after 4 dishes our stomachs still felt empty. At the restaurant, which had an extensive wine list, we were told there was nothing left except one €150 bottle. Sorry, but no.
