“Best holiday park EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2011

Spent a week here from 23/4/11 -30/4/11 staying with Thomson Alfresco. The site is set right at the end of the venetian peninsula and very quiet. The weather was fabulous when we were there - low 20's everyday but the mozzies were a bit of a problem so take repellent if you are prone to bites!
The site itself is huge but the roads and footpaths are excellent and everything is well signposted. I had read previous reviews about how unfriendly the Italian staff were but this was not at all the case and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The pools are fantastic and everything is exceptionally clean. You do have to hire the sunloungers but plenty of people just lay on their towels next to the pools instead. There is a siesta here from 1 - 3pm where just about everything closes and you aren't even allowed to drive your cars so you do have to plan your days a bit.
The beach is literally a 3 minute walk away and again is so clean with footpaths almost to the sea (so ideal for pushchairs/wheelchairs etc) and also has several beach bars. The kids loved collecting the gorgeous shells on the beach (we came back with a carrier bag full!)
There is a supermarket on site which is slightly more expensive than we would normally pay but the wine is SO cheap! You buy an empty glass bottle for 1 euro and fill it up for 1.80 euros time and time again! They have about 7-8 different types to choose from and they are very good. Also there is an ice-cream stall in the main shopping square which is 1 euro per scoop (again with about 10 different flavours...). There is also a supermarket just outside the camp gates although we never actually used it.
Crazy golf on site was 4 euros per person and excellent value - it took us about 90 minutes to complete the 18 hole course. The play park was also excellent with loads of slides, swings etc. You can also get the ferry from nearby into venice ( a 40 minute trip).
Overall, it was without doubt the best holiday park we have ever been to (and we have been to quite a few in various countries) and kept 3 generations very happy indeed!

My partner and I travelled to Marina De Venezia in September with friends and had an absolutely fantastic time! The campsite is so organised and I would imagine that for families it would also be absolutely brilliant as it feels like a very safe environment. We mainly used the campsite as a base for trips to Venice, Verona and Lake Garda but on the days we did stay on the campsite, we found plenty to do if you wanted or just chill out and relax if you preferred. The massive swimming pool complex is spotlessly clean (as was everything else) and I'm sure a lot of people would spend all day there. Although it seems a bit strange at first that there is a siesta when everything is closed (including the pools) I think that it is probably a godsend for families as the kids aren't overtired later in the evening. The beach is absolutely massive and also very clean with beach bars every couple of hundred metres. We found that the main restaurant on the campsite (near the stage) which comprises of 3 different seating areas was extremely friendly and reasonably priced and all the food we had there was excellent. The same can also be said of the restaurant which is just outside the main gates of the campsite. We did, however, find the other campsite restaurant which is opposite the supermarket, very unwelcoming and the food decidedly mediocre...avoid this one if you can. The supermarkets located on the campsite and just outside the main gates were both excellent for anything you could need.....barbecue stuff, salad...anything you can think of really! Also I must recommend the wine in both supermarkets - you just buy a container the first time and keep filling it up....only 1.80 euros a litre and the red 'frizzante' one is gorgeous! It's only about 2km to the ferry for Venice and this runs throughout the day and up to about midnight so we went over through the day and then again at night - it's about 40 minutes on the ferry. If you are venturing to Venice make sure you get drinks and food away from the main bars overlooking the Grand Canal as these are very overpriced and there are some really lovely little squares where you can get reasonable prices and much friendlier service. Overall a brilliant holiday and I would be happy to go back anytime.

Just returned and had a fantastic holiday. Camp site very clean and well run. Site Spar supermarket excellent, well stocked and prices sames as off site supermarket. Stayed with Key Camp in Marina 2000, however had a noisey polish group next door for the last 3 days of our stay. Fantastic site if you want a beach/pool holiday. We normally like to go and visit places and explore daily and unfortunately apart from Venice and Jeslo di Lido, 7 nights was too long for us. We took the ferry one afternoon to Venice, 8 euro rtn with Marco Polo. Venice was a mixed experience, I liked it my husband didn't. There are lots of massive advertising hoardings draped across the full length of ancient buildings. Didn't do a gondola, 100 euro for 35 minutes but there were plenty of resurants offering tourist menus from 13 euro. Venice was very very busy with thousands of people all doing the same as we were. We are both pleased that we have visited but probably would not go again. Did not smell and canal water looked very clean and blue.

This was our first time staying on a campsite. We chose Italy because it's a country we love & have spent many holidays there, though always in hotels. We chose this as our children are now teens & we were hoping to get a mixture for both us & them.
It certainly is an extremely clean site & very pleasant surroundings, we had no problems with any of the staff & found them all helpful, if required.

The pros for us (adults) was defnitely the beach, it was lovely & we never went to the pool once in our 2 weeks, it seemed pretty manic & noisy. The restaurants were all good, not one bad meal & as always in Italy very good value. The supermarket was also well stocked & fairly priced, I would cycle up every morning for fresh rolls (& buns!). It is a bit of a distance from the mobiles (Thomson) & would be a hike carrying heavy bottles of water. For that reason alone the bike was needed.

The cons for us were - cabin fever. Thank God for the beach as there was nothing in the immediate surroundings, no towns, villages etc & to be honest even if you had a car I doubt there was much to see. Because of that we felt we could have been in any country & it wasn't the Italy we were used to. Also -the weather. I know Northern Italy can always be a risk but when it rains it pours, which it did for a few days. Previously in hotels & somewhere more central it wasn't as much off a problem, but here in a cramped caravan (& we had the largest mobile) it was truly awful.

The pros& cons for the teenagers - luckily the boys met up with some other teenagers, not sure what they did as there wasn't much for them to do at night but they enjoyed it (think they met a few girls!) As for the girls they didn't meet anyone of their own age & as the pool felt a little young or just far too crowded for them they ended up joining us at the beach most days - not really what they had planned.

After 14 nights we were glad to leave as *the square* had become so repetitive. As nice as the restaurant was it was time for a change. The shows were also aimed more at the much younger children, as my daughter commented "this would have been a great place when we were young" I agreed, but didn't let on there was no way I would have wanted to sit at that huge pool area keeping an eye on them all day - sometimes smaller is better.

We did do a trip into Venice. We purchased our tickets in Punta Sabbioni, I think they were about 16e each, which gave you access to the waterbus in Venice, but I did wonder what would have happened if we hadn't bought any because we never- not once- had to show our ticket to anyone. Venice was extremely humid & crowded, so much so we had been pushed right past St Marks Sq before we knew it. The side streets are extremely narrow & with the crowds we could barely pause to get our surroundings, it was claustrophobic to say the least. We quickly jumped on the No 1 waterbus did a quick tour & quickly left. The canals are almost as busy as the streets & we saw some couples who had obviously paid a lot of money for their gondola having to steer round boats that were transporting a whole cargo of toilet rolls & one full of washing machines. Romance must be as blind as love!!! The money would have been better spent on a nice meal & good wine. (IMO)

In conclusion, we have decided to go to a campsite again (even though I feel I missed out on my fix of Italy) this time to SW France. It's on the beach, has a teenagers club, a town very near & does not rain in the summer, the scenery also looks great, but I doubt eating & drinking out will go anywhere near as good as it is in Italy. We will leave our Italian hotels for another time.

We stayed for 10 nights in August after driving from the Uk and staying over at Mulhouse,to be greeted by friendly staff who advised us where to go to our reps after fitting wristbands at Entrance just watch out for cyclists and skateboarders who have no fear.We stayed with Thomson Alfrecso as always great accomodation with the all important air con.
The site was immaculate,with all toilets and shower blocks having their own cleaner on hand all day.
The site has it's own beach with easy access with bar and toilet along with beach showers,the sea being shallow for 20-30 mtrs out so great for youngsters wanting to paddle.The sand is also good for sunbathing and also playing games on,volleyball courts are set out on the beach.
The site has a Spar supermarket with another supermarket just outside which is slightly cheaper but on site the food is still reasonably priced with a fresh veg stall and visiting fishmonger, there is also abeach shop and accessory outlet selling all camping gear along with charcoal for the barabecue.
An essential is the mossie spray and candles of an evening which can be bought on site,but even with candles burning bright people were still getting bitten,we took Jungle spray from Wilkinsons after reading previous reviews which was the only one which seemed to keep them at bay.It leaves a film on the skin you just need to wash it off last thing.No mossies in the caravan though thanks to the air con.

The pool complex is great with wavepool on every hour in the morning and afternoon,also aquafit if you want to do it but no pressure if you don't,sunloungers were 1.50 euro per session each which with an umbrella at 1 euro could work out a bit pricey at 8 euros a day,pool along with virtually everything is closed for siesta so you have to pay again in the afternoon!!!

We didn't see much of the entertainment but chatting with people who did they said it was enjoyable even if done on a low budget,well done to theentertainment team.

We visited Venice by water taxi with roaming ticket at 21 euros each and also the local market which was a bit of an experience,go early but be prepared to be go with the flow shoulder to shoulder with everyone else,we caught the bus from the site which was packed mid morning.

Brits were in the minority with mostly holiday makers being Dutch or German but everyone got on well.
The restuaraunt on site was good with evening meals being resectable at around 8 euros for a main course,take away pizza also good value.

This is the first time we have been to this site and to sum it up great location,great accomodation with great staff we'd come back again,just watch out for the mossies and you'll have a great time!!!

I must agree with most other reviewers, this is the most efficient and clean campsite I've ever been to. The check-in at camp-site reception was out-standing, we had hardly got out of the taxi before we were wrist-banded and we and our luggage were whisked away by golf-buggy to our Venue Holidays reception tent just the other side of the tunnel. We had a mobile home on a shady pitch surrounded mostly by German families who were peaceful and calm. The pool area is fantastic, spotlessly clean and great sunbeds to hire (2E for a half day for a lounger with a nifty movable head shader). Kids loved the pools as well as the beach which was clean, close and very very big. The shower/toilet blocks were also spotlessly clean which I'd never encoutered before on a campsite. We ate out every night, on-site. Restaurants were good, not too expensive and extremely efficient. Staff were friendly enough, worked very hard and did a great job. I can't think of one thing to criticise except maybe the mozzies. We had a few bites between us but not many, certainly not a big problem. I can't imagine another campsite ever matching these high standards.

Looked at the reviews on tripadvisor before I booked and they all gave a good review so I booked up 9 nights via Keycamp in a 2 bed static caravan . Got a great flight from East Mids into Marco Polo airport , hired a car £250 but only used it to get to the campsite and back and once to go to the Chemist to get cream for the mossey bits ( ensure you have your garlic tablets before you go as you will get bitten ) . The site is massive and run very well , very clean and loads to do : 1 , The Aquapark has swimming pools / water shoots / wave machine and much much more , we have 2 young kids 2 & 5 and both thought it was great , 2 , Straight onto a brilliant beach , very safe and great sand and again very clean , 3 ,. Good restuarants we eat out every night . 4 Great play areas for the kids and much much more - Could go on for ever praising this place and i am now looking already to book for next year and i never do that i always wait until the last minute but i don't want to not be able to book - THIS PLACE IS GREAT FOR ALL FAMILYS
