I stayed here for 4 nights with my two friends and having read the reviews and the website we were expecting a great campsite in a fantastic location within easy reach of Rome. Needless to say we were slightly surprised that it took us over an hour to get from Rome station (Termini) to the campsite! In fact, the campsite is a fair way outside of Rome, right next to a very busy main road. This meant the campsite was very noisy but at the same time very isolated. There was no way we could have gone anywhere other than the restaurant on site for dinner because the buses stopped running at 8.30pm.
The restaurant itself was alright but for the prices you pay the pasta dishes were all pretty disappointing. The pizzas were absolutely amazing though and definitely home made. The supermarket on site was great and the croissants were an excellent breakfast option.
We stayed in a bungalow which was very basic but perfectly nice. Apart from the fact that the bunk bed (probably added to accommodate a third person) was so high up that it was impossible to sit up in it even for someone who is only 5'2"! The matresses weren't that comfortable either and we all had backache by the end of our stay.
The pool was lovely even though it rained for most of our stay there. The music was at a good volume so it was still possible to read your book without being distracted if you wanted. The whole atmosphere at the campsite was really fun and all the staff (especially at the info point) seemed friendly and helpful. The day trip to Pompeii was also excellent and probably the highlight of our stay here.
