Hotel, resort in a strategic place to visit the whole environment of Sila. All the services are definitely performed with extreme professionalism. The rooms are comfortable, and the indoor swimming pool/sauna/spa it's an excellent topic to do at the end of the day spent visiting the surrounding.

This hotel was extremely clean, family oriented. We had a fabulous dinner there. I would highly recommend this hotel and spa. We enjoyed the little coffee and alcohol bar. In the spa they accommodated us with cold cuts cheese and wine for lunch. All very gracious people.

We had a marvelous experience at Hotel Biafora. The food, service and the rooms were excellent. We were in Calabria for a family wedding that was being held at the hotel and we decided to add a few days on our visit. What a smart decision! The rooms were well appointed and the spa facility (only completed in January 2016) was impeccable. The real surprise was the quality of the food. The chef has taken traditional Calabrese dishes and added a modern touch. We are still raving about the gnocchi with a lemon/Caprino sauce. All in all we will try and make this a regular stop each time we travel to Calabria. We all agree that the Sila Mountain region in Calabria is the Montana of Italy...with better food!

We found the staff to be very friendly and attentive. The hotel itself could you some updating in different areas. Some parts are super modern and other parts are outdated and a bit shabby. The hallways are dark, the rooms were not well cared for and did not give the appearance that where the guests stayed mattered. Bedspread was stained, towels were stained and shredded in places,and it did feel attended to very well. They do not have a fitness centre and breakfast is just okay. This has the potential to be amazing so hopefully they will address some of the issues..

This hotel has a beautiful setting, a few miles out of town. That was the best part. Our room was very small and located at the end of a very dark hallway. The furniture was old and needed upgraded. The towels were rough and bristly, like using sandpaper or a brillo pad for scrubbing. We ate our evening dinner in the restaurant. The wait staff could not speak any English, and we could not understand the menu. The chef, who spoke some English came out to talk to us. We ended up choosing the chef's choice. We are still not sure of what we had to eat. It was not filling or delicious. We would not recommend this establishment.
