My husband and I travelled by train to Marina di Gioiosa Jonica in May 2007 and booked this hotel based on the review by the previous guest ... and the fact that no other hotels were reviewed.
A helpful staff member picked us up at the train station (2 blocks from the hotel) which was a lovely experience. We were shown 2 rooms and selected the one with a gorgeous ocean view. We were tired, hungry and needed a shower ...
There is only a bathtub with shower attachment, but no curtain. So it's either a bath, or crouch in the tub and use the shower attachment ... not very comfortable and the water was only tepid. And, the toilet didn't flush ... just swirled the paper around. The sliding patio doors did not lock and there was no safe in the room. Patios are connected, so we weren't terribly confident that someone couldn't get into our room. Front desk and manager came to fix it so they would lock, but then we couldn't open them ... so much for enjoying the deck.
Cost for this hotel was 85 Euro ... 98 for the suite.
Breakfast was sweet rolls and coffee ... no yogurt or fruit or cereal like other hotels in Sicily or Calabria. So, we walked down to the Sabbia d'Oro ... and booked 4 nights. It was fabulous!! Please read our review of that hotel. Well worth it!!
Would never stay here again.
