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!
