Nice site, shame about the accommodation.

Firstly the good things; the site as a whole was nice, the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help, their grasp of the English language was far superior than my grasp of Italian!

The site consisted of bungalows (one of which we had hired), tented accommodation to hire and plots for people to pitch their own tents and caravans. There was also a restaurant, a bar and a supermarket all in the same area, a bar beside the pools and an ice-cream bar. For campers there was a toilet and shower block and laundry room in the centre of the park. Entertainment consisted of two pools; one just calf high at the deepest points, used by the kids for playing games and adults for sitting around the edges keeping cool. The second pool was approximately 5' deep and didn't allow inflatables, so ideal for swimming. There was a beach volleyball court, table tennis tables and games in the bar.

The food from the restaurant (and the bar, which doubled as a breakfast area) was good, and the service was excellent. It was also possible to order takeaways from the bar during the evening, which were mainly pizzas cooked by the restaurant staff.

Now to the bad bit, the accommodation. I knew it was a caravan (rather than a bungalow as it was called) so I wasn't expecting palatial accommodation, but I was taken aback at the smallness of it. It wasn't actually a full caravan, they were halved by a partition wall, meaning there was a bedroom and a bathroom and nothing else. It also meant that every movement from the neighbours rocked the caravan on our side too. Floor space was about as large as a reasonable sized coffee table, so dressing (especially since I went with teens of both genders) and moving around was like a military operation. The third bed was a bunk with a very wobbly ladder, thankfully my daughter was just young enough not to worry about it, because if I'd ever managed to get up there, I would have been terrified of getting down again.

The shower was powerful, but ran from cold to burning hot, with about 15 seconds of reasonable temperature between changes, so showers took a long time, with the timing of rinsing hair, etc having to be very precise.

All in all, I'd recommend it for students on their first holiday, or a couple, but for 3 it was just too cramped.
