“Away from home you are happy!”

Dear travellers,
We stayed in Hibiscus Uno for 12 days during July. This is an extraordinary place giving you a warm welcome from the family of Mrs Domenica De Luca! The appartments, indeed small houses are clean, comfortable, there is fully equiped kitchen and fantastic garden in front. I would strongly recommend it to families with children but not only as it can be quite romantic for couples or funny for a bunch of friends.
The place is away enough from the road and the noise of the city and is very quiet and restful. There is only one point to know in advance - the distance from the beach is 15-20 minutes by walk and when the weather is too hot it's a bit long. This is important for families with kids travelling without car. However we enjoyed these daily walks a lot as the view from the appartments to the Historical center of Tropea and the beach is very nice.
Finally i found Hibiscus Uno well well balanced place between price and value. I've already recommened it to my close friends.

“Mama's place”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Nice, kind and tender are the De Lucas who own and operate Hibiscus Uno, helped by Pablito the dog, Pasqale the rooster keeping his flock orderly and productive. The apartments open down to a flower park with barbecue and children playground, and then, three steps down, to parking and a tiny vegetable farm.
It is interesting even to do nothing; bird twitter will help you forget everything and Domenica may pamper you with little gifts. You can agree with her to make you a proper Calabrese dinner, too.
It is ideal for out of season with Tropea quiet, sandy beaches comfortable and supply of ice cream unlimited.

“Numero Uno!”

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.

“Ciao Pablito!”

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.

“A paradise for families - Run by a family!”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

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.
