I really don't know where to start, when we arrived there was an American couple at reception having a heated argument about towels saying they were going to sue, one of the staff (a man) was laughing whilst the American was getting irate. The next day another couple were complaining they had mould in their fridge.
Our tiny portakabin (which they call a bungalow) home had no air con or fridge, our shower ran cold for 2 days and then was fixed the day we told them to be fair. My boyfriend sat on his bed and it broke, we found a slug in our sink, red ants were rife, the curtain fell down & the toilet leaked all over the floor. We complained about the above and got moved twice but in the end gave up when the bed broke again. The older woman at reception has a face like a smacked bottom and it seemed such and effort for her to listen to our complaints!!! The music at the pool and the restaurant is cheesy and on a loop, not traditional Italian or up to date music.
Happy Village charge 70 euros if you want a transfer back to the airport, 40/50 tops is the going rate but they have a captive audience.
The restaurant that is linked to Happy Village is called Morabezza, very overpriced 4 euros for half a lager. We had a meal for 3, with 1 portion of chips, 1 salad and a coke each without dessert this came to 45 euros. You don't get shown to a table, find your own! You don't get brought a menu, ask for one! On the whole the service is appalling and the staff albeit nice are half-soaked and unattentive.
Ok here are the good points, the pools are lovely and very clean, the lasagne & pizza in the restaurant are delicious & there is a free minibus that runs into town every hour or so,
The Trevi Fountain is currently closed, it has been drained to be renovated, all of the museums in Rome are free the first Sunday of the month, ie National Museum, Colosseum etc.
Take your own towels, you don't get fresh ones unless you pay, rooms don't get cleaned unless you pay. Take a swimming cap, you cannot use the pool without one, the pool closes at 7.30pm, wifi is 4 euros but mainly only works in the restaurant, take your own toilet roll, buy a daily/weekly metro/bus pass it's a bargain. To get to the campsite head for Prima Porta on the metro, the campsite minibus stop is just outside. If you want more detailed directions or minibus pickup times please message me.
