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.
