We spent 7 nights in this place and we were quite skeptic about this place at first. Pictures looked lovely, but we were afraid what the reality is. Well, it was wonderful, clean beautiful and service was most of the time very good. We had a bungalow, that was very clean and cosy and its air condition was really good. The room went from sauna to nice cool room in couple of minutes. There wasn't room service. No-one cleaned the room while we were there, but it didn't bother us. New clean towels would have been nice though, because they were damp all the time. I don't know if we could have asked for new ones. We got hair drier from reception, whenever we needed one. Had to leave 20 euros, but we got it back when we returned the drier.

There was a minifridge that we stored our liquids and breakfast supplies. It was quite small though. We didn't have a kitchenette. There was a store you can buy pasta, bread, cheese, ham, water, soda, beer, water etc. You can also buy swimming caps. (you have to wear one in the swimming pool!) There is bigger and cheaper store in prima porta (left from the station). The hotel's restaurant was nice and service was good. Prices were okay. You can check the menu and prices on the website.

Service was okay, everyone except for the poolboy spoke english. And almost everybody were nice. We were treated really nice. Our drinks got bigger the more we spent money there. The restaurant was open only in the evening.

The major problem about this place is the location as everyone brings out. We went to Rome every day except for one. It takes about 45 min to get to Rome. 10 min on shuttle bus. 20 min on the train to Flaminio. Then metro or bus where-ever you're going. And remember the changing time. We were there in the summer so it was extremely hot all the time. It would have been nice to go out in the morning and in the evening and have siesta in the middle, but that wasn't really an option because of the remote location. The shuttle bus goes to prima porta 9, 10, 11, 17.30, 19.30 and 21 and from prima porta 9.15, 10.15, 11.15, 18, 20 and 21.30. On our first day we were in prima porta couple hours too early but when I called the reception they sent us the driver. But I thinks this was sort of one time thing.

There is local bus 303 that leaves near the hotel to prima porta (and back) every 40 minutes from 7-19. We found out about this on our last day, so we used it only once. For some reason the hotel doesn't advertise this more... You can use it when the shuttle bus isn't driving. The route is about 30 min and hotel's stop is in the middle, so it takes about 15 minutes. (You can count when the bus will be on the stop: 7.15, 7.55, 8.35...)

Well, this place was nice, quiet, beautiful and quite cheap. We probably wouldn't go back there, because the location was bit inconvenient. But it was nice to come back after long day of sight seeing to the hotel whit pool and quiet, cool room. If you are thinking of staying here consider the location before booking but if you choose to stay here you will enjoy your stay!

It's a great place to stay with your friends or family. a bit far from the city center, but there is a shuttle, which takes you to the city train station and from the station. Service is great! Hope to come back there one day!

When we initially saw the ad for this campground we snickered and said that we would never go to ROME to stay at a trailer park. At the end of our cruise, we had two more days in Rome and essentially no money left. our group of 7 booked 3 bungalows for the 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bungalows were clean and sufficient for our needs. The air worked well and the room had a fridge, which was great for us. The thing that I would go back for is the beauty of the place. the treetops formed a canopy over the campground that made it look like a fairytale forrest. There was a really cool ice cream shop on the grounds that served fabulous ice cream. The also have a restaurant that serves a variety of foods. Our group ages were from 14 to 80 and we all found something on the menu we liked. The busline was a short walk to the main street. We took the busline to the train station which took us to the city. it was a great adventure for us. When we got back we all sat outside at our picnic tables and took pictures and socialized. We all regretted that we had not stayed at Happy Camping Village at the beginning of our trip.

We enjoyed our stay here, but we stayed here for four nights as an escape from the city, so we didn't want to go into Rome at all, we just wanted to stay around the campsite and relax. We stayed in a cabin. Please note, we booked through external website, and on the website it advised that there was a kitchenette - this was not the case, there was only a mini-fridge. I suggest you check the campsite's website for details of each type of room/cabin.

It's quite a long way from the city. From Rome Termini, you swap to metro (Line A to Battistini) to Flaminio, then catch a train to Prima Porta. Took us about an hour. Happy Village shuttle waits out the front of the station, and then it's a 5-10min drive.

SHUTTLE TIMETABLE
In the morning, the bus went into Prima Porta at 8.30, 10, and 11.30am. (Goes back to campsite from Prima Porta at 8.45, 10.15 and 11.45am)
Pick up from the station at 5pm, 7pm, 8.30pm, and 9.30pm. (Leaves the campsite to get there at 4.30, 6.30, 8 and 9pm)

Prima Porta is very small with two restaurants but no shops etc.

Campsite has a restaurant open from 6.30pm - 10.30pm (from 8EU - 19EU), a very very small supermarket (basics of ham, cheese, bread, milk, beer, toilet paper), which opens in the morning until 11.30am, then open from 4ish til 10.30pm.

Breakfast is offered in the morning for 3,50EU and consists of two bread rolls with jam and butter + coffee.

Pool closed from 10th October onwards due to weather.

No other supermarket in easy walking distance, it took us an hour to get to the closest one (there isn't one at Prima Porta). Without a car it can be very isolated here unless you take the shuttle into Rome.

Vending machines available at the campsite with sandwiches, snacks and coffee if you're desperate for something at lunch.

Wifi is available at designated internet points, and costs 6EU for 24 hours, or 3EU for 1 hour.

Laundry and dryer facilities available - 9EU for wash and dry, or 4,50EU each.

BBQ on site for use - free.

I wouldn't recommend staying here if you want to go into the city every day and see Rome (there are plenty of cheap hostels and pensiones closer to the action) - but I enjoyed Happy Village as a quiet place to relax.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a cabin with a full kitchen as cooking each night will save you money on the restauran...

We loved our stay in this campsite. It was the first time for us that we booked a mobilhome in a campsite. Rome is very busy and it was nice to come "home" in the evening and enjoy a nice meal in their good restaurant with friendly service.
It's really very quiet in the evening. One day we visited Rome, the other day we enjoyed staying at the swimming pool for about 5 days long.
Our mobilhome was very spacious and clean.
If you have a car, I advise to go with the car to Rome. We didn't had any difficultous to park the car and it was only 4€ for 8 hours! The shuttle service is ok but you need to take the train and the metro which are very dirty and crowdy!

Due to a delayed flight my boyfriend and I arrived late in Rome, phoned our travel company who informed the so-called Happy Village that we would arrive between 11 and 12. When our taxi dropped us off in the middle of nowhere (the resort location) we soon became aware that there was no-one to let us in and indeed seemed to be no-one on site whatsoever. Having tried to call the hotel number repeatedly but to no avail we eventually crawled under a locked gate in search of a member of staff. We saw no signs of life whatsoever and the whole place felt deserted. We were then forced to spend the next 4 hours in the middle of the night standing in the cold trying to get hold of a taxi to take us back to Rome
