Stayed for one week in a one bedroom condo with partial view. Staff exceptionally friendly, especially Samantha and Genaro. Food great. Shuttle bus was a great plus as only drawback is the drive up to the resort. Very steep incline with blind spots. We had the half board option and found this very economical. Pool could be heated as temperature... More

Our stay here was marvelous. The staff was the most accommodating people ever. The property is well maintained and believe it or not, it looks just like the pictures posted online. The amenities were wonderful and the food was great every night. One observation, a little more variety of food options. Shuttle to town and beaches were timely and frequent.... More

We traded a timeshare week for a condo here and had a very nice time. Our condo was very comfortable and roomy. We had amazing views from our balcony. We had a rental car but mostly used the shuttle because driving was a little tricky. We took the shuttle to the beach every day and enjoyed the use of the... More

Villaggio l'Olivara was lovely. The view was stunning and Stromboli was clearly visible smoking away in the distance. The breakfast buffet was very good for only 5 Euros/day. The employees in reception were extremely helpful. The pool was lovely. A beautiful place to stay, particularly in October if you enjoy a quiet place!

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...

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
