Forget it! The acommodation wasn't what we saw in the Photos. No decent beds. Nettuno has a very bad access for people with walking disabilities like my mother. The accommodation hadn't good view and the doors are broken. The Toilette went broke 3 times as we arrived! We didn't have at any point internet nor ventilator, not even for rent and we had 41 degrees! We had to leave as soon as we find a decent accommodation, and its super far away (the last bus is at 7 pm to Sorrento!). As we arrive my sister was walking the luggage and A worker of the reception with his car almost drive over her, and scream to her rudely. Worst experience ever!
Well where should I start. We booked an appartment, but we got a bungalow. But it was cheap, so we didn't complain. The bungalow was clean, make sure to bring your own corkscrew for wine bottles, because there wasn't any. The equipment of the kitchen is basic but ok. Good shower. The bungalow looks out to other bungalows and to the parking lot. The terrace had four chairs and two lounge chairs, a table and an umbrella. At night the camping was very quiet. The personnel of the camping village was very friendly. The restaurant is cheap and good, the waiters and waitresses were very friendly too, expect for one that didn't seem very motivated because it was "too hot". The beach in August was absolute horror. I have never seen so many people gather in such a small space. Like sardines in a can, i cannot describe it in another way. Every morning, hunderds of people came down to marina del cantone to spend the whole day at the beach. The whole amalfi-coast is overrun with tourists and from my point of view to be avoided in August. Unless you like crowds, of course. We decided to leave one day earlier, this had nothing to do with the camping, we just got tired of the crowds.
The campsite is with small terraces quite cramped for our tasted In our view s managed to maximise return but so penalising a bit customer experience and safety in peak periods. Frankly given the little space it is not clear why management allows car parking in the camp. That aside we had a copule of unsatisfactory exchanges were by a certain arrogance of the staff has emerged. The beauty of the area does not justify that.
The website pictures are not true. We left 3 nights early after 10 days of dust and people being placed right next to us ( I even had to move my guide ropes from under another tent!!!) There are no marked zones/plots for camping and even after booking 8 months ahead we arrived to very little choice of plots to pitch our tent. The campground staff were awesome as were the shop and pizza chef who accommodated our dietary needs when making pizzas. The beach access is great but you only have a small amount of free beach that is open to the public so got very overcrowded. The area is beautiful and the water is awesome. Unfortunately the amalfi coast is more about money than the beautiful place it could be. There was a lot of rubbish lying around and bad driving with angry people. There are better parts of Italy to visit.
Pros- so close to the beach, adorable bright painted exterior, good value restaurant with amazing pizza and pasta and useful shop on site, helpful staff. Cons- no air con in our room! Be careful of getting off the bus in the wrong place. Go all the way to the coast on there!
So convenient for the beach, perfect for families wanting to chill out. Alex is worthy of a special mention- amazing with kids. Played in the pool with them and then again at night entertained them brilliantly. The bartenders are great- make a mean cocktail giving attention to detail and great customer service. A happy place 😀
This is the second time we have stayed in June at this resort, having visited Marina del Cantone on a number of occasions for meals. On both occasions of our stay we have been very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of staff along with the owner Michele and his family. You can contact them in advance or arrange things - such as transport at the time - no problem! The site has various areas of accommodation and this allows you to camp, caravan or stay in bungalows - even inside a historical fortress tower. It may depend how many and what age your party are? We had a range of adults and children and stayed in a bungalow. The accommodation is spacious, clean and offers all the home comforts you need for a holiday - after all why are you here? There is a small pool and play area along with other games to play for children. During summer entertainers are also on site to assist in games and crafts. Likewise the adults are expected to monitor their children in the pool and ensure good common sense rules are obeyed. The restaurant offers authentic local produce and of course pizza's. Also takeaway meals via the shop and bar. An excellent range of goodies are available there including a nice coffee! It works very well and gives the resort a happy and relaxed ambiance. Also there is nice sense of security and honesty. For more technical or energetic activities try scuba, walking or riding a Vespa - all available from the resort! Let's not forget you are in a marine holiday paradise with regular excursions to Capri and other towns on the Almalfi coast - likewise to Sorrento and Pompeii. So a real holiday with very good facilities in a paradise location - its really up to you what you want to spend, but don't forget this is the Almalfi coast - a real gem!
The location is beautiful, but the management is disrespectful. The owner/manager had the audacity to berate his own customers. There are so many other choices for accommodation in this area, so I would recommend staying somewhere else.
Our only concern was the management at Villagio Nettuno. Responses were relatively prompt at first, but the communication ultimately could have been better. We were offered the option to have a taxi pick us up from the Naples train station: “Transfer pick up service from and to airports (Naples and Rome). Possibilities of Taxi with special prices! Possibilities of guides for all the locality of the area.” We decided to look into this option, and we were told that someone would be able to pick us up. We were stranded at the Naples train station for 2 hours while we tried to communicate with management to confirm that someone is picking us up. We did not receive a clear answer, and we were told that management could not get a hold of the driver that they sent for us. We were repeatedly told to call back in 10 minutes as they tried to resolve the issue. We were not provided with any guidance on finding possible alternative transportation. Ultimately, we consulted the tourist information desk at the station and purchased train tickets on the infamous Circumvesuviana to Sorrento, which is still a while away from Nerano. We let the management know that we were ok with having someone else pick us up in Sorrento. However, we received no messages in Sorrento, so we resorted to taking an overpriced taxi to Nerano. We were left to figure this all out on our own, and we politely let the manager know when we arrived. He let us know that the driver’s car broke down, which we understand can happen. This does not explain the fact that he did not help us find alternative transportation options and kept us waiting for 2 hours in Naples. What stunned us was that instead of apologizing and trying to accommodate us after an arduous 7 hour journey from Rome, we were met with a manager who raised his voice on us and tried to turn the situation around on us. He said “what do you expect? You’re only paying for a bungalow!” The taxi service was a separate fee, and we were willing to pay for it, so we’re not sure why the manager did not put forth any effort to resolve the situation. As a host, I did not appreciate him talking down to my guests, and let him know that in the tourism industry, that is not how a manager treats his customers. After working in the service industry, I was stunned that someone can feel so confident as to berate their own customers. Michele, the manager then continued to berate us and rated us online as uneducated customers who had trouble finding a taxi. He also stated that we complained about everything, when the only real issue was the fact that he didn't follow through on his word and left us stranded for a couple of hours at a train station. We never even mentioned the spotty wi-fi to staff. We would have had no trouble arranging alternative transportation if he didn't promise us that he can arrange for someone to pick us up from the Naples train station. Nerano is an absolutely stunning place to stay on the Amalfi Coast. We thoroughly enjoyed the majority of our stay here. Villagio Nettuno had very nice bungalows. The wi-fi is spotty here however, and will not work at the bungalows. You have to go to the lobby to get somewhat reliable wi-fi. Nerano is not as crowded and touristy as Amalfi or Positano, so you can truly relax here. The beach is fantastic with many wonderful family owned restaurants such as Mary’s Beach Nerano. You also have the options to go on a private boat tour to visit Amalfi, Positano, or Capri, but this private boat tour is not offered through Villagio Nettuno. You must request information by the beach about a boat tour/ kayaking. All in all, the staff was very friendly, except for the management. This location is stunning, but look elsewhere for transportation options. The tourism industry is very competitive, and many hosts will do their best to earn your business and provide you with a pleasant stay. Keep this in mind as there are plenty of living quarters along the Amalfi coast.
Villaggio Nettuno camping is in a gorgeous setting with convenient facilities and friendly, helpful staff. Follow their directions for camper accessible road. Although accessible did not mean easy, for sure, it was completely worth it!! The views on the way are breathtaking. We took Nettuno's boat trip to Amalfi and Positano and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Nettuno staff helped us arrange a surprise meeting with friends in Amalfi with graciousness and good humor. The staff drove my 85-yr-old mother to the marina. Restaurant was adequate, and there are other options nearby.
