Villaggio Hemingway
Ranked #20 of 96 Hotels in Caorle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We, parents with teenagers, stayed for a week in this apart-hotel. Clean, spacious in two floor two-bedroom flat (luxorius with two bathrooms), washing machine, dishwasher, well furnished and equipped. Nice personnel. Nice pool area. A short walk from the private (free) beach as well as the center of the small and charming town of Caorle. A supermarket just around the corner made it easy to buy all necessities and the morning bread. Many nice restaurants and little shops in the center. (No clubs or heavy nightlife - but the center and the little alleys were very lively in the evenings.) Not to forget the Italian Gelato. Had read about a problem with mosquitos prior to our arrival - and yes there were - but as long as we remembered to bring a mosquito-stick for the evenings we were fine. From (and to) the airport we took a direct bus - with AC and much much cheaper than taxi. Just a few minute walk from the terminal to the hotel. We simply had a great stay, one of the best holidays, in Villaggio Hemingway and Caorle.

I stayed here with my family 1 week this July. We were lucky to get a brand new, spacious apartment, almost top floor and with a glimpse of the ocean. The beds were horribly hard, except from that I have no complaints at all. Luxury having dishwashingmachine and washing machine in the apartment. The pool area was rather small compared to other villagios we've visitied, and mostly packed during the day, so one really had to struggle to get sunbeds.
Except from a bar there were no other facilities at the hotel. A big supermarket is located 100 m away, so every morning we could get fresh bread and everything else we craved for.
The beach was only 5 mins walking away, which was not at all a problem.
We probably had bad luck because we had a terrible sandstorm/wind during our first 3 days, except from that the stay was great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building facing the ocean:-)

We chose Villaggio Hemingway for our family holiday as most of the negative reviews seemed to be beyond the hotel's control (mosquitoes, having to move rooms as a boiler broken down etc).
After 2 weeks, there is no doubt it was a wise choice. We stayed in the one-bedroom apartment , which situated on the top (5th) floor. Even without a sea view, the two balconies overlooked a large part of Caorle as it's one of the largest buildings and this also gave a decent breeze during the hot days and we used the a/c at night. Was great eating on the balcony in the evenings.
The rooms were clean and I was surprised to find bed sheets and toilet paper in an 'Apartment hotel'. Fully working microwave, oven, hob, as well as sufficient pots, pans, plates etc. The dishwasher and washing machine was a surprise and it all was pretty well kept. The bedroom has a double and a single with the living room / kitchen having a sofa-bed (double). Easily enough room for the 4 of us.
Had a problem working the washing machine but we called reception and the handyman was on his way with 30 mins and in the meantime we worked out how to switch it on :-)
The pools were clean and well-kept. The kid's pool was great for my 4 and 6 year old boys although it wasn't heated I think as it was rather cold after a rainy night.
The supermarket is 5 minutes walk and fairly priced (1 Euro for a loaf of bread, 1 Eur o for a basket of tomatoes - a good range of vegetables and fruit, drinks, etc etc.
We had a warm welcome with a free beach bag and only 5 minutes to the beach where 2 sunloungers and parasol were included in the package.
I'd recommend it for families: kid's pool, good facilities in the apartments, play areas on the beach, shallow gradual walk into the sea and excellent ice-creams (La Galleria near the old town was outstanding).
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Our one-bedroom apartment was on the top floor away from the noise of the pool. There are 2 working...

Just been there. A modern and fine hotel especially suited for families with children. The facilities are excellent but the service doesn't have the same standard but of course this is an apartment hotel where you are supposed to be on your own. The receptionists and hotel staff are not very helpful and speak little else than Italian.

- They could have offered dishwasher tablets/powder and toilet paper. 3 *** (???)
- Reception didn't inform (know) that the boat to Venice was only on Thursdays(low season?)
- Towels being left on chairs near pool, to keep chairs, for after beach = 3-4 hours with just towels, and no guests. Annoying when trying to find a free one.
- Clean, but not spotless. Dusty and fingerprints.
- Only Italian and German channels on TV.
+ Quiet at night.
+ Washing machine. If you want to wash clothes on holiday.
+ Friendly staff.

We recently stayed at the Villaggio Hemingway for a week from 16 August. Unlike the previous poster we didn't have any real problems with mossies when we were there. I got a couple of bites but the rest of the family didn't get any and we were able to sit outside in the evenings and didn't use any mosquito repellant. Perhaps going later in the season made the difference. I also picked up a leaflet from the tourist office which included lists of all the doctors in Caorle including several English speaking ones so not sure why the first poster didn't think there was one for 20K.
The complex itself was great. Very clean and modern with one of the nicest bathrooms I've seen in a self catering apartment! Kitchen was generally well equipped but like with many European apartments it didn't have an oven which limits the cooking options, not that we cooked that much though as there were lots of good restaurants in Caorle. The two pools (one suitable for younger children, the other about 3ft 6 deep) were nice but as usual you had to get there early to get a sun lounger. There were very few other English guests there at the time we were there; our boys (12 and 10) didn't bother with the kids club but it could be a problem if you were intending to use it as there may not be any other English speaking children there.
Caorle itself has a nice old centre with plenty of shops and restaurants, (about 5-10 mins walk). The beach is massive and you get 2 free nice sunloungers included which is a bonus. The sea is very shallow and safe for young kids-you could walk out for about 300/400 yards and still only be waist deep. We hired some kayaks and pedalos with a slide which were good fun. Venice is a must whilst you're there (about 1-2 hours away depending which transport option you use) but was very hot and crowded. We had a great time for a week but I think we'd have got bored if we'd spent any longer there. We combined it with a week at Lake Garda which is a good 2 centre option.

Mosquitos will eat you! We had to come home after 3 days as I developed an allergic reaction to the bites I had 71 bites by day 2, I developed infections and decided to come home as did not want to end up in hospital over there also the nearest doc was 20KM away and no hospital nearby so I didn't feel safe, although lady in the farmacia helpful, very expensive- antihistamin cream was 14 euros! best to pack some, you will definately need!

Crystal the agents we booked through said ideal for families - OK for younger children but not teenagers).You had to find your own entertainment, we didn't have a car so we felt a bit stranded as out the way. Good beach but the mozzies! Also jammed packed and way too hot! Definatley not good at night - they bite more! Make sure you take anti bite spray and put it on all over as they get into your clothes, I was covered but had sprayed the visible bits outside my clothes - but not good enough, some of the bars and restaraunts give you free spray to sqiurt on while you're sitting there but that's usually too late.

The pool at the hotel - Hemingway Apartments was OK, you can hire bikes from there for 5 euros a day, cheaper than in the town. Great 4 uni cycle things with a roof you can pedal on as a family, 14 euros an hour.But that was all there was to do for teenagers really the bikes and the pool as beach too hot and crowded. We were really disapointed in the area and the fact we came home early too.

Not a patch on Lake Garda - Pescheira the best place to be, we tried Caorle but never again. Also at Hemingway Apartments, a fuse blew and we were without electricity from 12:00 - 3:30 and no-one could come put as we were told it was siesta time- so not very helpful as no air con (it was 35 degrees that day and we had just been shopping so ice creams were melting in our fridge.
So if you do go make sure you have everything to protect you from the mossies!
