I stayed at the resort in August 2016 (having stayed also in August 2015), I am not going back this year! This resort has the potential to be fantastic, the location is easy to get to, the setting is well thought out, the beach is 30 meters from the main building and the village has a great swimming pool for all ages. Some of the staff were great, polite, helpful and willing, but also embarrassed! Yes, embarrassed, almost everyone who arrived had a complaint to make within minutes (cleaning, things not working etc) but despite promises to put things right nothing got sorted unless you insisted. We booked full board, in two weeks you would expect some variety of food, it seemed like almost the same menu for the whole time, mediocre would be my good rating. Waiting staff very hard working, however the restaurant management very poor, waiting time for deserts for example was endless. The animation was great but as it changes every year it's not a factor you can rely on, the site merits a top agency though, I'm not sure this is the case (Investment is important) . Let's look at the specific of the apartment. We had a sea front apartment, to my surprise we had to ask for the apartment to be cleaned again as we arrived (attention to detail not managed). The room had mold and despite raising the issue the management (not reception) waffled on about rising costs and getting good staff. What this holiday village needs is a new owner, or the current owners to stand up, listen to their clients, and invest in the structure and staff training for excellence. Quality control here is effectively done by the clients, who all moan but put up with things because they are on holiday. I may have gone back this year, but the reviews I'm reading are just like last year..........

We were visiting family who own a unit in this resort. We were lucky enough to be put up in the hotel portion of this resort. Villagio Santa Monica is the destination for the "real" Italians. We were the only Americans on site, but we felt as if we belonged. The property includes the magnificent Ionian coast. The view will not disappoint. Water sports are available - kayaking, pedal boats and sailing. There are 2 pools with ample sunning space. Poolside bar is the site of afternoon entertainment. "Aquagym" water exercise classes were fun AM and PM. The former in the sea, the latter in the pool. Entertainment is reminiscent of club resorts, but on a less demanding scale. The activities are available if you want them, but nobody pushes you. Staff is friendly and goes out of their way to please you. Dining at the Villagio Santa Monica is casual, but the food is top notch. The fare is typical Calabrese buffet. This writer maintains a gluten free diet. The Maitre D was very thoughtful, having the chef prepare special meals for me. He even prepared lunch for the family for our travel day when we left for home. Rooms are clean, and the entertainment is fun. All in all, this was a relaxing and wonderful place to host our family reunion. We will return to the Villagio Santa Monica.
