Myself and my boyfriend travelled here for 1 week in august. its very easy to get here from marco polo airport, just 2 buses that are easy to navigate and are very reasonably priced (works out at about 7 euros each). The staff are mostly friendly, however can come across as rude at times (maybe something is lost in translation).
We stayed in the mini carvan duette, which although the size is documented on the site, is very small, the bedroom is so small I had to side step around the bed and there is hardly room to get dressed! Contrary to what the what the website says, I dont think this caravan is large enough to house a couple and a small child, it would be far too cramped. The caravan itself had all the equipment you'd need, theres plugs for chargers, a fridge, air con, a TV, cutlery etc. However when we arrived the caravan stank of cigarette smoke, there were chocolate wrappers under the sofa cushions and hair and sand on the floor.
The pool area was very nice and we were able to hire sun loungers there were staff available at the pool as well in a lifeguard sort of role. The pool closes from 1pm til 3pm which seemed a little extensive (the shop also closed from 12-4).
The beach is OK its about 2 minutes walk from the campsite. Its not particularly clean, theres lots of cigarette butts and rubbish in the sand but the sea is nice and clean.
The showering facilities are poor. They are always covered in sand and flies, even first thing in the morning after they have been "cleaned". You really need to wash half a beach's worth of sand out before you can shower. They are advertised as being hot, however they are mostly cold and you might if your lucky get a warmish one.
The website says that jesolo centre is ten minutes away but that is on a bus and definately not within walking distance. The same goes for venice its about an hour and a half on 2 buses and then another 20 minutes on a water taxi.
The centre of jesolo is very nice, its all pedestrianised at night so you can walk about quite easily, theres loads of restraunts and shops but they tend not to open until about 7 pm.
I think it was our caravan and the misleading information on the website that dulled our enjoyment (aswell as the showeres being cold and sandy). If we were to go again we would use the eurocamp caravans they seem much larger and nicer. Overall the actual campsite is nice and we enjoyed our holiday but just be aware that you either need a car or be prepared to use public transport.
