We had requested the resort to book us a taxi for a family of 4. For €70 we were surprised to have a 20 seater bus non air con and non luxury. We then had to make the resort aware after which they discounted it to €50. Not a pleasant experience to start. There is a forced €35 charge per... More

This is a mixed bag of amenities. First, it is difficult to find. They have no street address so your GPS must use lat / long coordinates to find the place. The staff is warm and efficient. The grounds are beautifully manicured, neatly kept. The views from the rooms and resort are very impressive. The rooms are neat and clean.... More

Actually this resort is in Drapia, a small village on top of the hills, overlooking Tropea. This village is accessible by foot, for a five minutes' walk from the resort. To get to Tropea, you have to take the shuttle bus or drive. The way to the resort is very winding and quite hard to drive at night. The resort... More

We stayed at the Villagio l'Olivara through our RCI Timeshare points. It was a little difficult to locate at night, however, the property is very beautiful, with amazing views of Tropea. Our unit was a two-bedroom located upstairs near the swimming pool, mini-market, and restaurant/bar. The unit was clean and comfortable, with a balcony that overlooked Tropea. We drank in... More

Very damp room. The so called king bed was two twins poorly sandwiched together. Unit was not in good repair. They only change the towels once a week and don't change the bedding. When housekeeping changed the towels they turned off the water heater, when we came back from the beach we had to wait 30 mins to wash the... More

The apartments were damp and very musty, however the staff were very nice. If you stay for a week, they only exchange your towels once mid-week even though the towels stay damp. Wifi is not accessible in the rooms, and only available by the pool and reception. The bus is not available in the evenings, so having a car is... More

Our view was limited, the "2 bedroom" was tiny: the LR/DR/kitchen was jammed into a 10'x15' room!!!! The tablecloth was torn, there were no matches to light the stove, and there was a squished bug on the BR wall when we arrived that was still there after the room was "refreshed". The bathroom was tight for just one person. There... More

I read a lot of negative reviews regarding people's stay at Villagio I'Olivara, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. The hotel is in a great location, meaning it's walking distance from the train station, close to the beach and town. There is shuttle service to and from beach and town, I just planned accordingly since the last... More

It rained the first few days we were there, which is by no means the fault of the resort, but that does give you time to note a few things that could be better. The rooms are small - this was an apartment that is supposed to sleep 6. We were only two and we were almost crawling on top... More
