I just came back with 2 friends, using an RCI exchange & would recommend in a heartbeat. Pros: the views are top notch. The hospitality- from the front desk, to the bartenders, to the shuttle & taxi drivers, are amazing. The balconies are huge & the grounds are well manicured. The town of Tropea is amazing- true Italy. Beautiful beaches... More

Our apartment was a little tired in terms of furnishings but the balcony view made up for everything! All of the staff that we dealt with, especially Samantha and Domenica, were extremely friendly and helpful. We initially thought that the on-site shop might be expensive but, after comparing prices with shops in town (not supermarkets) we were please to find... More

I also went here with 4 other women in May. We booked thru RCI. I can't say enough good things about this place. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Staff at the front desk spoke English and helped us book early taxi's to make early train trips. They even sent their own worker down with... More

The Apartment is not a luxurious place but okey enough. Friendly and Englishspeaking staff. Poolarea and sunbeds very nice. Good pizza at the restaurant. The minimarket provided the most basic things. We took the shuttlebus to the beach almost everyday, and we also ate lunch at beach-restaurant belonging to the hotel. Samantha was working all day and she really took... More

I was with a group of 4 other women. We used RCI to book the 2 bedroom apartment. Villaggio l'Olivara is a very wonderful place. The staff was great and so very friendly. There was no problem with communication; most of the staff spoke English. We had a gorgeous view of the sea and Stromboli from our balcony. Giuseppe drives... More

We loved our week here at this resort. Accommodation is basic but comfortable enough. Cooking facilities are not much but ok for a simple pasta meal or a salad. Fridge and freezer were good. Excellent balcony added another room. Check in on Saturdays is hectic so check back with reception the next day to find out everything that's going on.... More

The best Italian vacation ever. Flowers, flowers everywhere! From our beautiful 2 bedroom apartment and view from the balcony (picture perfect), the beautiful little town of Tropea to the walk up the hill to Gasponi. It couldn't have been more perfect! Samantha and Dominica treated us like family. Great breakfast with "to die for" croissants.

We stayed here for one week in May. The weather was glorious. The resort is beautiful with lovely grounds which are well maintained. We had issues with the safe every day but the staff came and sorted it and never complained. The only down side for us was that the 2 bedroom apartments have only one bathroom. There was only...
