Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Walking distance to the beach and scenic hiking trails
  • Breathtaking views from many of the apartments and some of the bungalows
  • Numerous accommodation options including camping, bungalows, and apartments
  • Rustic apartments are housed in a dramatic, centuries-old stone tower
  • Restaurant serves pizza, pasta, and seafood in a setting that offers pretty ocean vistas
  • A modest on-site grocery doubles as a bar
  • Diving center offers guided dives in a marine nature reserve area
  • Nearby access to the ferry service to Capri and the Amalfi Coast

Cons

  • Rooms in the bungalows are a bit spartan, and some have outdated decor
  • Old, tube-style TVs in both the bungalows and apartments
  • Steep hills and pebbly beach means location may not be suitable for very young children
  • Some rooms may be slightly damp
  • Campsite toilets are old (though mostly clean)

Bottom Line

Villaggio Resort Nettuno is a lower-middle-range property with a variety of options for those who wish to stay here. Campers can pitch a tent or set up their mobile home on the premises; there are also independent bungalows set in the terraced landscape, and slightly rustic apartments situated in a centuries-old tower up the hill from the main encampment. Some campers have noted that though the bathroom facilities are relatively clean, they look a bit old and dingy. The property is located a five-minute walk from Marina Cantone, reputedly one of the more beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast. This small pebble beach provides access to crystalline waters as well as ferry service to Capri.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Charming mix of camping and guest houses near the sea; attractive to families and groups

This property, with its sprawling grounds in the beautiful, small beach town of Marina del Cantone, attracts a variety of international tourists and a large number of families traveling with teenagers and children. The bungalows are terraced into the hillside overlooking the sea, and many of them are tucked away from view by surrounding olive trees. The main area has a few spaces in which to lounge and relax, including a restaurant with pretty ocean vistas. Overall, the grounds are charming but slightly rundown, with chintzy AstroTurf and flagstone terraces.

 Location

Five-minute walk to the beach at Marina del Cantone

Marina del Cantone is one of the most famous (and crowded, in summer) beaches along the Sorrento peninsula. The street leading up to the hotel is narrow and leads to restaurants near the beach, as well as to ferries that stop at other locations along the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri.

 Rooms

Some bungalows are more charming than others, while the apartments have a rustic, homey feel.

There are numerous room types at the Nettuno. One can camp or set up a mobile home in a variety of sites scattered throughout the property. There are also small, stand-alone bungalows as well as apartments available in a 16th-century stone tower up the hill from the property’s main building.

Bungalows are simple and on the small side, with bunk beds and tiny showers. Though the decor is punched up by some brightly colored furnishings, it is quite plain overall. Some bungalows have a bit more charm than others, with sweet details such as floral tiled floors and wood ceilings. All open onto lovely patios, some of which offer striking ocean views.

Though by no means luxe, the apartments in the tower have slightly more of a homey feel, with rustic furnishings and some cool details such as stone accents. Many of them also have balconies with spectacular views of the sea.

Some of the bungalows and apartments contain modest kitchenettes. The overall feel of the rooms across the property is somewhere between luxury camping and simple, country guest house.

 Features

Diving center, pool, and beach access

The main draw of the property is its access to the beach and surrounding hiking trails. For those wanting to avoid pebbles, there is also a small pool and a handful of activities, including ping-pong. A tiny play area with a swing set is available for the kids. A modest, on-site supermarket offers the basics. The diving center organizes guided tours of the surrounding waters several times a day. Ferry service to Capri is also nearby.

 Bottom Line

Villaggio Resort Nettuno is a lower-middle-range property with a variety of options for those who wish to stay here. Campers can pitch a tent or set up their mobile home on the premises; there are also independent bungalows set in the terraced landscape, and slightly rustic apartments situated in a centuries-old tower up the hill from the main encampment. Some campers have noted that though the bathroom facilities are relatively clean, they look a bit old and dingy.
