This resort is absolutely beautiful and we loved our visit here. I absolutely want to return with my family. Our terrace had a spectacular view of the water, pool, and the Tropea marina. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Especially Dominica and Samanta...they couldn't have made us feel more welcome and spoke excellent English. We arrived after the reception... More

This was an amazing mountain top resort with breathtaking views of the town below. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our every request was granted. The grounds were beautiful and always clean. We enjoyed our evenings in the dining area where we met up with other guests. We built lasting friendships! The food is buonissima! Also, I recommend the boxed... More

We stayed a good part of a week, enjoying a great view of the ocean. We spent mornings wandering around Tropea. One morning we walked out to the marina, another we sat on a small piece of pristine beach just over the marina wall. The resort van was timely. All the staff, was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in the first week of June through an RCI trade and enjoyed it immensely. The resort has many assets: 1. a fantastic staff who will go to any lengths to please (eg took us to the local hospital for a minor problem; helped us contact a translator and complete a translation we needed). The star of the... More

Villaggio l'Olivara is a beautiful, charming, welcoming and relaxing resort. The views are amazing and if you are as lucky as us you will get to see the sun setting over Stromboli from the lovely pool terrace. The staff are friendly and helpful and the accommodation is very clean and comfortable. Only downside if I had to say there was... More

Stayed a week in September as a timeshare RCI member. Took the train from Naples in the morning. Transferred at Lamezia terme only to end up at the sweetest train station in Tropea. The hotel sent a shuttle within 10 minutes of calling and brought us to the hotel. Stayed in an apartment that felt like we were on top... More

This resort was more than we expected; a beuatiful place with a breathtaking view from our balcony. We had 3 bedroom apartment and a great view to the pool and to the see with stunning sunsets. Apartment itself was well furnished and with air condition. There is only one restaurant at the resort and that was a disappointing with a... More

After a bit of a rocky start, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villaggio l'Olivara. We arrived late on Oct. 6, after the reception desk closed, but had emailed ahead to let them know when our train was due and were told that an envelope with our name on it containing the apartment's key and a map of the resort...

The property is quite nice, high on a hill overlooking Tropea. The staff are helpful and Italian is not really necessary. But.....half of the residents are timeshare renters and the other half are school children at some kind of school vacation camp. They stay up until midnight and the noise level requires earplugs for sleeping. They certainly do not have... More

About an hour's drive from Lamazia Terme airport. Would recommend a sat nav as some of the signposts / google map directions aren't that easy to follow. We stayed in one of the higher apartments - absolutely stunning views. Although, from what we could work out, it seemed as if all apartments offered a sea view of some description. Very... More
