We have just returned today from a two week stay at Villagio Planetarium and I am already depressed. We have had the best time in Bibione and our accommodation was perfect. We had a top floor two bedroom apartment with views of the pool and the gardens (Plutone 18). Brits haven't really discovered this resort yet so you could end up being one of only a few English speakers but if you learn a few Italian phrases before you go it will only enhance your experience. The animation crew do a wonderful job every day keeping everyone entertained - zumba, water aerobics, spin class, kids club, mini disco and shows in the evening. There is a lovely wee market across the street where you can pick up essentials and there are plenty of places around about to eat too but you can't go wrong with the hotel bar and restaurant where the food and service is first class. We joined in the pasta pool party which was excellent value at just one euro each! Towels are replaced on a Wednesday and sheets on a Sunday and if want them replaced before then you will have to pay. As it is an apartment there is no daily maid service but the pool area is cleaned daily and is spotless. It is a 20 min walk to the beach or you can use the free shuttle bus. Beds on the beach are allocated on a Saturday and if you want a good spot you will need to get up and out early to join the queue but then for the rest of the week that site is yours and you can use it as little or as often as you choose. The usual pool towel dash at 8am is good for a laugh but there was enough room for everyone so as long as you don't mind where you sit then there is no real need to rush. We swam some nights until after 9pm but were eaten alive by the mozzies so make sure you stock up on repellent cause you will need it. Quiet time is 11pm to 8am so don't expect to get to sleep before then. If you book this apartment complex you won't be disappointed.
