Recent guest reviews

Honestly, we have been travelling the world both on a very tight budget, same as on an admittedly very big budget and are used to a variety of accommodation options. Hence we were not afraid when reading beforehand that Villagio Nettuno would be basic. But “basic” and “we don’t care” are two different sorts of things. Villagio Nettuno is in almost all aspects the latter type. It started with a rather difficult email reservation process. Even though we have been asking weeks before, the spot could not be secured until we almost arrived. Once there (the drive is an adventure in itself) we were shocked with the option to either put up our tent literally next to the wall of the washing rooms (smelling like hell) or in a small corner of the road in front of a huge wall. Well. Not really cosy. Ultimately, after some time arguing, we got a supposedly better place next to beach. Looked nice. Then the staff carried over the fridge, which we had ordered via email before. Offering this was a bad joke, though – even for South Italian standards. It was just crap. So we gave it back immediately. Next was the visit to the bathrooms, which we had the pleasure to smell before: Basic, indeed, but unfortunately they would have also needed a renovation soon and didn’t look very clean (black mold everywhere). They are supposedly cleaned twice a day – but as there were too few facilities for the number of people, they would have needed even more frequent cleaning. The small supermarket next to the reception is ok, but surprisingly expensive. With these first impressions we started in our first two days. The biggest downsides, however, were still to be discovered: the beach and the campsite management. The beach is nice at first sight: small and with small rock on the beach and big rocks in the water, but it gives access to the wonderfully warm Mediterranean Sea. The problem is: it is a small stretch for the campsite and the public together only – opposed to the majority of the beach being exclusively reserved for various other hotels and beachside restaurants. As such the whole local beachgoers fight for space with the campsite visitors. And on summer Friday and Saturday nights the literally all-night party is held in front of the campsite, and of course no guard cared about the fact, that this (mostly teenager) party guests were frequently using the campside toilets for their business, that is really a “nice” surprise in the morning. Nor they cared about sleeping times. (and we are not talking about 10 PM, but after 2PM it would be nice to sleep, though, and not listen to a group teenagers drinking and partying 5 metres next to your tent. We almost didn’t sleep for two consecutive nights. When we went to the campsite management to complain and ask for a solution, they said: “why bother – just party with them!” Seriously? We didn’t know we booked a low quality U20 nightclub. We decided to leave. This would be possible, they told us, but we would have to pay for everything - regardless of our actual stay and regardless of our well understandable reasons to do so. We had a real argument with the entire owner family, unwilling to do something, harsh, stressed-out and completely unable to cope with the situation. In the end we decided to stay one more night in the onsite Torre – a heavy brick and mortar tower with a small guestroom overlooking the sea – and leave as soon as we have secured a better alternative in the area for the final night. The tower was ok, but also significantly more expensive. We finally left Nettuno with more money spend than anticipated, one night earlier and a clear summary: Never ever go back.

We came here for 2 nights as a base yo explore areas nearby. That was a bad idea in itself because the place isn't well connected and it takes ages to get anywhere. We had planned on renti g a scooter from the resort l, and I had emailed in advance to check that we could do that, but when we arrived it turned out that there were only 3 and they were all taken. So that also messed up our holiday quite a bit. The bungalows are quite pretty and colourful on the outside but completely old and run down on the inside. There were ants everywhere and all the furniture looked like it was going to fall apart so we barely used it. They provide blankets but who knows when they were last washed. The supermarket is quite under supplied with hardly anything actually in it. The reception is not very friendly and although the girl clearly spoke and understood English she refused to speak it to me and instead spoke in Italian to my husband. All in all I wouldn't recommend this place or go back.

I though a lot about this review, whether I'd write it or not, but here I am. The camping site is absolutely beautiful, nothing to say about it. We stayed here for 2 nights in September with a little tent, and the camping places have a lot of space and privacy, it's a bit difficult to leave your car near the tent because the street is quite small but there is a parking place further up. The camping is really located on a beach with rocks In low season there are some big groups of scholars staying at the camping who sometimes make some noise, but it's not to loudy. A little bit further up the camping there is a restaurant and a bar with music in the evening. Really nice the guys of the bar and the drinks are nice and effordable. What the shortcoming than? The owner, Michele. Imitating german people behind their back and if you ask him about it he will always be in the right and you must have been drinking or be crazy. I've read some of the other reviews and noticed that I'm not the only one who have had the same experience. I'm sure he will reply saying that maybe I just wrote the review without staying really there, or that I was drunk, or that I just imagined it, like he has done with all the other reviews, mark my words :) I'd never return or recommend the camping to friends because of his rudeness. A pity, because it's a place with lots of potential.

Great place to learn diving from the very beginning with excellent instructors. Perfect teaching and great hospitality. Very recommended.Our diving instructor Aventino was super professional and pacient, we had a great time learning diving from him.

We spent a week at this campsite. The pitches are set out on terraces, some with shade and others without. We found a pitch with a canvas sheet hung out over it, which gave us shade in the afternoons. The washing and toilet facilities are basic. There is a pleasant shop and bar but it is up many steps from the campsite. There is also a small, overground pool by the bar. We were very surprised on the Sunday we were there when the campsite seemed to be the main thoroughfare for locals getting to the beach. Worse was to come later in the day when many of them used the showers supposed to be for campers, and left them in a very untidy and dirty state. I asked at the reception about this when we were checking out and was told that they were all from the bungalows, which are part of the resort. If that was the case, why did they all need to use the campsite showers? Apart from these problems on the Sunday, however, we had a pleasant stay in this part of Italy.

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!
