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

Staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful they spoke perfect English. We love Samantha and Fernando. They did a great job organizing tours for us. The driver of the van to the beach was very friendly. We had a beautiful apartment at the end of the property facing the ocean, the property has beautiful flowers and the... 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...

Overall the resort was delightful. It is a nice get a way for the Europeans. The staff works very hard to entertain the guests. It is quite an irony, they will keep you up late at night with music however will allow you to sleep in during the mornings as the entire yard is swept by hand. No gas blowers... More

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
