We arrived here with low expectations, given the price, but after a tiring journey from Rome. Arrived at 2.30 (check in advertised as from 2pm) to be told our chalet wouldn't be ready for 45 minutes, due to cleaning. An hour and a half of sitting around later we finally got access to our accommodation. It was less than clean, with an odd dirty smell and was clearly the worst of all chalets in the park. This is a place popular for school trips, we were surrounded by loud teenagers, which wouldn't have been so bad but the other, more tranquil part of the park was empty. When we asked to be moved we were told there was nothing else available.
The reception on the TV is dreadful and only gives you half the channels. The air conditioning does not work at all. The wifi must be paid for and is very bad quality with very slow speeds and cuts off periodically.
The town is a good 10 minute walk uphill on roads often without footpaths, and with very inconsiderate drivers. The town itself is lovely and the regular circumvesuviana trains are great for seeing the sites.
The pool at Costa Alta is beautiful but, strangely, you can't go in without a swimming cap.
This is a get what you pay for site but with only a few small changes could have been great. Still feel that we paid over the odds for what we got though and I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it to anyone.
