A clean resort away from it all, very large area, a fantastic lap pool and great water sports facilities. Perhaps a little too well organised but possibly great for parents with children who will be entertained – though the loud music around the playground and the pool may not suit everyone’s taste neither did the loud voices of the animation staff go well with a tranquil vacation stay. The place is super clean and well cared for and maintained, however, forget about Internet access (even in the areas so designed). Besides all the good things to say about Torre Oliva and the friendly staff we got put off by the dinner arrangement which is strictly regulated within a tight time frame – very much like a boarding school. You sit at your assigned table, eat and go. No lingering for a pleasurable pause for coffee after the meal.

We (my 6 year old daughter, my husband and I) stayed at Torre Oliva for 5 night in September during our trip to Italy. We had a fantastic vacation!!!! It is a small, beautiful, clean resort with a great, very friendly staff, lovely grounds covered with old olive trees and beautiful beach. The food was great, no complaints, the staff everywhere went above and beyond. Entertainment team was amazing. I would like to thank resort staff for making our vacation great, especially, receptionists, mini club teachers and a restaurant manager. Some tips for travellers, especially Canadians/Americans: It was our first time at a European resort. We usually stay at Caribbean all-inclusive resorts. Tip: do not compare, they are different. Resort is about 4 hours drive from Rome on a highway. The road is safe, toll was 16 euros one way. Our plan was to explore Italy and it worked for us. Resort: most people on a resort were seniors and families with kids. It was nice and relaxing. Only a few staff spoke English, but we did not have any problems. Those who spoke English helped us a lot. Food: we purchased half board and planned to have lunches at local restaurants. It was a mistake. We went to one restaurant in Sapri – Pupa Rosticceria Pizzetteria and got grilled chicken with feathers, lasagna with eggs, pizza and a bottle of beer. The only thing that was good – beer. We did not actually eat and they charged us 28 euros at the end. Note: Italian breakfast is not like American continental breakfast. They serve light breakfast with coffee, yogurts, fruits and baked sweets. The area around a resort is beautiful. We went (drove) to the little town that is on the top of a mount. The view was astonishing. The name of a town is Montesano Sulla Marcellana. Overall, we had a fantastic trip. Thanks everyone who helped us to have it. Pictures attached.

Torre Oliva is a very well kept and organized hotell. The staff is professional and friendly, and there are many guest who returs year after year. We have been at Torre Oliva for four years and appreciate it very much. Personally I love the swimming pool since I like to excercise as much as possible during my vacation. The vicinity to the sea is also crucial. The resturant is excellent. The staff spends much time cleaning the place so it is very fresch and nice. Areas of improvement: 1) the swimming pool opening time. opens at 9.00 and closes at 19.00. It would be a considerable improvement if it could open up att 7.00 or 8.00 a clock, since you could indisturbed from kids playing in the pool. 2) a small gym would not cost much to install, but would definitely give an extra plus for the ever growing category of guests who would like to be active during the vacations. 3) the resturant is excellent, but breakfast could be improved. Cornetti is not a non italians favourite breakdast in the morning. 5) the beds. This in not a typical Torre Oliva Problem. It seems tha very few hotels in Italy undestands the importance of providing the guest a good night sleep in a decent (not hard as wood) bed. 6) the activities during the evening are very focused on the younger audience (kids & teenagers). Some years ago the musicians Via Toledo were playing typical Italian folk songs! Fantastic exprience. Jazz music could be played at some areas in the great / large establishment during the evening. 7) in the TV salong it would be advised to install a projector or a big screen tv and more comfortable chairs. To sum up. Torre Oliva is a great place to stay, and it has the potential to go from "good to "great" with some spirit of innovation and thinking a little bit on how to satisfy the various categories of clients.

When we arrived at the Hotel Torre Oliva, we had a shock. It was like stepping into a time warp: alminium window frames, bottle green tiles, mirrors. Half-expected Bridget Bardot to emerge from the pool. Also, we had set our hearts on dinner outside with views over the bay. Not so. Every evening (except one) in an air-conditioned dining room. The showers in the bed rooms were also from another era. However, after a while the little things that gnawed away subsidided and you focus on the positives, of which there are many. Super friendly staff (although knowledge of Italian is a plus). Great food. Even the dining room grows on you as it becomes a hub of noise and energy in the evening. Tremendous views over the bay. Uncluttered beach, even in August. Wonderful pool. Great situation for visiting the national park of Cilento and beautiful towns like San Giovanni a Piro, Scario and Maratea. We went with two kids (10 and 12) and they loved it. Both were playing football until early evening (thanks Francesco!). This was close to the perfect family holiday and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is travelling to the region. With luck, we'll be back!
