    This was our second stay at Marina Di Venezia having previously stayed for 7 Days in 2012. On this ocasion we stayed for 14 days, choosing Canvas holidays as the booking agent. We stayed in a Deluxe Mobile which was adequate for our needs (3 Adults, 3 kids, aged 6,7,14).

    The mobile was well located, and well equipped.This years canvas staff were mediocre at best, no desire to accommodate early checkins despite requesting in advance, rarely seen around site and did not come near us for 2 weeks. Think will try a different company when booking our holiday next year.

    The site itself had excellent facilities, lovely beach, pool complex, eateries, shops, bike hire, kids park, mini golf, internet cafe, mini funfair for the children, laundry etc. All represented great value four money. The site is adjacent to a small grocery store and eatery called Vanins, we could not fault either the shop or the eatery for value or service.

    The site has a siesta between 1-3 during which time the pool, kids park and most of the shops close and no cars can be driven on site. We thought this was a good idea, a kind of timeout to head back to your accomodation, grab some food and head to the beach.

    Location - Airport wise, Its about a 1 hour drive from Treviso Airport, and 45 mins from Marco Polo airport.
    We found ourselves driving quite a bit for day trips which included trips to Milan (4 hours each way), Verona (2 Hours each way), Gardaland | Lake Garda (2.5 hours each way) . If you are travelling to Venice best take the boat from Punta Sabbioni which is a short distance from the site. Journey time on the boat can vary depending on whether u go directly to Venice or via the Lido. I thought ticket prices were a bit pricey for the boats.
    So from a location perspective if u plan on staying on or near the site for the duration of your visit then its fine, but if u are using it as a hub for travel its a bit out of the way.

    All good so far, but as with everything there are some areas that need improvement. The evening entertainment leaves a lot to be desired, some of the evening entertainment is provided by the sites animation team, and while well intentioned the quality is somewhat poor, on other occasions 3rd party performers were brought in, that were again well intentioned, but not up to much.

    That said there is a nice relaxed feel to the piazza in the evening. There are activities happening around the site during the day, but we kind of did our own thing during this time, so can't provide any great info on these. I can say when we did ask for info at the animations office, the person behind the counter did not come across as knowledgeable as they should do, maybe this was a language thing.

    I have to say though the woman in the information office was so unhelpful it was almost funny. We asked for information on getting to Verona and pricing at Gardaland, and were abruptly told in the case of the former that she did not live in Verona so knew nothing about it, and in the case of the latter, she knew nothing about Gardaland, I mean come on this is supposed to be an information office! Went back to buy some souveneirs before we departed and got very little in the way of friendliness.

    Overall a good site, worth visiting at least once for a short stay of 7-10 days. Entertainment and staff friendliness/training in some areas need work. Beware also the mozzies are rampant on the site, with ants not far behind so come prepared!

    We've just returned from a 10 day break at this campsite. We were really lucky and had great weather, not sure we would have enjoyed it if it had rained as there is very little to do indoors. The campsite is extremely clean, the staff are really helpful and friendly. It was great to have the choice of swimming pool or beach, my 2 year old grandson enjoyed both. The beach was amazing, it was cleaned every night, there wasn't one bit of litter in sight. The supermarket was really good too, although the one just off the site was even better and slighly cheaper. We went into Venice for 2 days. It was a 20 minute walk to get to the ferry and not too expensive. We found a little place which sold fruit and veg only about 5 minute walk off the the campsite. It sold really good produce and amazing wines.
    This is a great place to go if you want a totally relaxing time. There were exercise classes on if you wanted to be a bit active. The kids disco on the night was a big hit, even the parents got involved.
    Now for the downsides. Mosquitos! It was impossible to sit out on the evening without being bitten. We've all come home with a large number of bites, so be prepared. The other negative point i found was that we were surrounded by german speaking people so it never felt like we were in Italy. I like to hear the language and only did so in Venice.

    We decided to take our daughter and grand-daughter to MDV for a couple of weeks holiday as we had spent quite a few amazing holidays on Adriatic sites when our daughter was small. We were not disappointed, it's a great site with everything you could think of (and more) Their on-site shops are not like their UK counterparts that think well why not fleece the captive audience?.... My grand-daughter is under 3 so no kids clubs on offer for her age group but as you are able to sit on the deck and watch the kids play so it wasn't really a problem.
    We hired a car from Locauto at Marco Polo airport, when we picked it up it was pretty grubby but as the rather large Russian guy had very little Itallian we decided to let it go. Our car became the target of huge birds outside our mobile home so karma is a ***** :) They would need to sandblast it to get the poop off!
    Great selection of nationalities on the site and the staff were really friendly and happy to help, There were about 10 lifeguards on duty during the pool hours, safety and security are paramount. Gustocamp (Dutch) seemed to provide the best deal for this property, taking bedding etc. into the frame. The two guys who looked after us were very helpful and would always wave and smile as they passed. Would have no hesitation in recommending this site or going back.

    Room Tip: Even in the quieter areas you can still get a large noisy family move in....

    We have just returned from a 2 weeks stay here with Keycamp and we had a fantastic time. We travelled with 2 kids age 4 and 2 and a half and there is so much on site for to keep the children entertained. The Aquamarine Park is brilliant so clean so safe with small slides for the children and the pool is heated..Playground on site is very good but there is a small play area for under 6's and it costs €3.50 per child for 30 minutes which is a big rip off and if kids stay over 30 mins you are charged €6.50 each. Good value restaurants on site..supermarket opposite the entrance is cheaper than the supermarket on site..We stayed in Marina 2000 which is bit of a walk from the centre but we hired bikes which is a good idea..We travelled from Marco Polo airport by public transport and it was relatively easy and only cost €13 for all including luggage cheapest taxi transfer was €90 each way..Overall fantastic holiday brilliant site and great for small children..

    Having not been on a 'Camping' holiday since the 90s, it took a bit of persuading by friends to finally choose this place for our family holiday with young kids (5 & 7). But with it being half term and with very few other options we took the plunge.

    Despite many people obviously visiting this place, I still didn't find some of the useful information on Tripadvisor that I was looking for, so hopefully I can put that right here.

    For simplicity I have broken our main experiences up into parts, so if I don't manage to type them all up here in one go look out for any continuation as a 'Part 2'.

    7. Entertainment
    8. Check Out
    8. Things to be aware of

    1. Getting There

    We flew from Gatwick (LGW) to Venice (VCE). There seemed to be differing views as to the best way to the campsite with the local bus being the cheapest but longer, to hire car being the dearest if you are staying for a week or more. As we had 2 young kids in tow and quite a bit of luggage we opted for a private minibus from the airport, which we booked online before we left the UK. A return trip for the 4 of us was 180 Euros (i.e. 90 each way/22.50 each). You also don't have to pay for this in advance as they simply give you a confirmation email and contact number for the firm in case they aren't there when you land. We used

    http://www.airports-shuttle.com/

    The driver was there at arrivals with our name on a card and escorted us to a brand new air conditioned 8 seater Mercedes Viano minibus. The drive was about 50 minutes and he even drives you direct to your caravan/tent/bungalow with your bags - so no need to lug heavy bags around.

    We considered renting a car, but to be honest you don't need one unless you intend driving around - which isn't that easy to visit all the main sites. The cheapest we could get for the week was £218 (250 Euros), so the minbus was much better and less hassle. (Plus you also cant drive on or off the site between 1-3pm)

    2. Check In.

    When you get to the main gate of the park it's very secure. You can't get in without first giving over your passports and getting a wrist band - which you must keep on your wrist for the entire stay. You don't need to fill all the forms in there and then (which would be a pain if you arrived late), you just have to hand them in within a day or two.

    We stayed in a Thomsons/TUI 3 bed Vivaldi caravan - and the reps cabin is right next to these for formal check in and keys. Beware though that you may have a wait if its a busy season, as the reps take each group to their caravan, so you may have to wait until they return. Dont expect to get in to your unit before 4pm unless its quiet.

    The Thomsons ones are in the 'Marina 2000' part of the site, which is about 1km from the main gate, so if its raining and you haven;t got a taxi to the unit - take a brolley!

    3. Accommodation/Facilities

    It would be fair to say that this place is huge!. We reckon about 1200 pitches/units. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and efficiency of the place and you have everything you need without leaving the site. There are numerous shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, cash machines, amusement parks, you name it and its there - even a full sized supermarket which is comparable in price to UK ones. If you like a bit of a drink, the draft chilled wine is excellent and a snip at 2 euros per litre in your own bottle. Dont worry if you only have 1.5l bottles, they work it our pro rata for you.

    We also forgot our travel money, but even using the cash machines on site we got a competitive rate through them and our bank (HSBC) even with the 2.5% handling fee.

    Accommodation wise, the caravans are more than adequate - having a fully fitted kitchen with utensils, air con (at extra cost), shower and separate bathroom. We also had a nice wooden terrace with table and parasol which was lovely to sit and have lunch with some chilled wine.

    The biggest attraction and bonus of the place is their AquaMarina water park - its fantastic for kids of all ages. If you want a sun lounger its 1.50 Euros per session (AM or PM), but you can just as easily lie on your towel by the pool or one of the grassy areas for free. The kids pools are a lovely 26 degrees all year round and we couldnt get our 2 to come out!. There are good slides, a big 'wave pool', an Olympic size swimming pool (laned off for the serious swimmers), a dive school, and 2 other big play/fun swim areas. there is also a couple of bars next to it for drinks and snacks, although these arent allowed in the pool area. There are lifeguards everywhere, so the kids can splash about quite safely.

    Food wise, it will depend upon whether you want to cook or not! We did a combination of both. The quality and range of food and veg was very good and not too expensive, although there is also another supermarket just outside the main gate which was marginally cheaper.

    The restaurants on site are ok, with the Pizzas probably being a good safe bet for about 6-7 Euros per person. There is also another nice restaurant just outside the park called 'Vanin' which does a nice variety of dishes. A big meal for 4 with drinks costs us 48 Euros. there is also a lovely seafood restaurant about 200yds left of the main gate exit which is a bit pricier, but is worth it. I thin kit was called 'Oasis', but there is a big sign on the road, so you cant miss it.

    In the cafes/bars a nice cheap drink is the Camapari/Prosecco spritzer, which comes in a litre carafe for 11 Euros, which is a nice way to watch the kids boogie to the 8.30pm disco in the main square.

    4. Things to do

    To be honest, it's whatever takes your fancy. You can rent bikes on site, go wind surfing on the 4 mile pristine beach attached to the site, swim, walk, eat, drink, dance, sing, golf, go kart etc etc. Our main attraction was having things for the kids to do so we could get a break from them - and to be honest you are spoiled for choice. There are many play parks and safe areas to bounce, trampoline, slide or jump, and all within walking distance, or you can walk the 1km from the site to the main ferry port at Punto Sabbianno to take a 20 minute water taxi to Venice or Murano for the day.

    Part 2 to follow.....

    Room Tip: If your travel company offers it, go for a bungalow
