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

This property is absolutely beautiful, perched on a hillside overlooking the city of Tropea and marina. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and most spoke quite good English. (Be advised, however, that most of the rest of the staff does not speak English and that this is a resort where Italians vacation. Mostly Italian is spoken.) The pool area... More

Spent a fabulous week in May 2012 and the staff made it the perfect place to stay. Nando answered all of my questions by email and had a shuttle waiting for us at the airport. I spoke no Italian, but the warm, wonderful Italians did not care. We got along fine and communication was not a problem. Was looking for... More

I can only say good things about this property. The views of Tropea, especially at night, are magic. The restaurant had great breakfasts and different dinners every night. There is also a small range of food, snacks & drinks available at their shop to tide you over while you laze about the pool or in your room. The staff speak... More
