“New and Old Memories at the Averno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

It was a mere 37 years ago that I was sent to be stationed at the Naval Hospital in Naples, Italy. My wife, three kids, two dogs and three cats. With luck, we found Complesso Turistico Averno to live for four months in while we waited for housing elsewhere. We could have stayed here at the hotel/camp site for the whole three years!

After a few return trips in the eighties, I am back in Pozzuoli, sitting on the porch at the Averno of one of the bungalows near the very place we stayed so many years ago. It's the same - it's beautiful - it's friendly - it's PERFECT.

As the writer above mentioned, the Damiani kids run both the hotel/resort/campgrounds and a new facility closer to Lago d'Averno, Habiba where folks come for parties, weddings, events in an amazing location. This is a fairy tale setting for romance.

Between the staff, who are out of this world, the decor which emulates ancient Roman architecture, the world class clay tennis courts where international competition takes place, you can't ask for much more. Sure, you may want a Hilton Park Hotel with its grandeur, but this place has ambience that can't be beat. Dancing at night with your lady love, eating with Carlo and Dante with their menu (you can't get Italian food in the US like you can get at CT Vareno), cappuccino in the thermal pool (even in the winter), as Memo, the owner, says, "Paradise!" I agree with him.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2009

This is wonderful place to stay for a family holiday.It is great value and has lots of options but you do need a car. The complex has camping, caravans, hotel rooms and units. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with kitchen and laundry facilities.Although the rooms are not luxurious there is plenty of room, free wifi , and ability to self cater or eat out. The complex has a great hot spring pool which we used even though it was mid winter. There are other pools, but unless you are a penguin are too cold for winter. They would be great in summer. We used the tennis courts and the complex also has a basketball court , playground, and go kart track for summer.
With all this ,the best part is the owner, Eduardo. He could not have been more helpful. On our arrival he drove us around for an hour, to show us where the supermarket , tourist sites ,walking tracks, roads, safe parking, train terminus etc. were !!!! It was definitely beyond the call of duty. I cannot imagine he can do this for everyone but nothing was too much trouble on any level.
The area is great , aside from being 3/4 hr from Pompeii Herculeneum, Naples and other major sites, the volcanic solfatara, amphitheatre, cuma and Pozzuoli should not be missed.
