Hibiscus Uno is a lovely place to stay just outside Tropea. Set among citrus trees with well laid out gardens with barbecue facilities, the bungalows provide a cosy place to stay away from the crowds of Tropea, but with the town a very short walk away. The beach by the port is also very close to the accommodation which was perfect for exercising our dogs.
Domenica really looks after the bungalows and they were remarkably well equipped with everything we could possibly have needed. We found this a peaceful and enjoyable place to stay and an excellent base to explore Tropea and its surroundings.

We stayed for 5 nights in late September, and we're so happy with our choice. Domenica and her family have a wonderful spot with everything you need while on holiday. The kitchens were well equipped and with ample parking for our rental car, we felt right at home at hibiscus uno. The walk for dinner every night was a lovely 10 minutes into centro storico, and there are lots of little markets in the town to stock your kitchen.
I would recommend hibiscus uno to anyone looking to stay in Tropea.
OK - Let me frame this by saying that my perfect rating doesn't denote that this is akin to the Waldorf in NYC. This place is however a refreshing departure from the overpriced, undersized places in the centre of town that don't seem to understand that normal people have families. This place was clean charming and spacious. There's a lovely playground, BBQ and lots of space. Even free parking! More importantly, the lovely people who run the place went above and beyond to a degree that is hard to describe appropriately. We got lost on our way in and were way off course. I called the villa. They told me to stay put where they came to meet me and escort me back to the property. Later I was in need of a GPS to replace my broken unit. None available young Alberto accompanied me as a guide to a store in Vibo to get a good deal on a new one. This was a 90 minute journey. In these and other cases I could not get them to accept money for their time. An unbelievable dedication to taking care of their guests. On the property is their farm where they picked and gave us an array of fresh fruit. The best figs! I can't reccokmend this place enough.
