“Very enjoyable stay. Nice complex. Would recommend to families.”
Reviewed 2 September 2009

I would recommend this complex to other families. We had a very enjoyable stay. Hope the following will help others :-
Rooms & complex - apartments are very good. We had a one bed apartment and this was big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. Large fridge freezer. Ask for room over looking pool area. Nicer view than the road although nosier at night. Thomson guests are all in the same complex. Only about 6 english families when we were there. Mainly itialian and german. Pool complex opens at 8.30. Watch the germans - they jump the walls to get to the sunbeds ! Air conditioning and safes are free which is excellent. You can hire a bike for 2 euros each for a day. Good value and they are needed sometimes as the walk into town is quite long. At leat 15 mins to get to main resort road. Entertainment is ok but geared to Italians which is understandable. Pool complex is very good.
Beach - very Italian with rows and rows of sunbeds. Not for us - we only went once although there is a free shuttle bus and free sunbeds.
Resort - The resort is huge and.goes on for ever. There is one main road. Pedestrians only in the evening. Loads of shops and restaurants. Quite pleasant though.
Food - a bit disappointing but good value. Mainly pizza and pasta. We found it hard to find somewhere that we would go back to. Best restaurant by far is Venexia on piazza treviso (opposite Atmosphera which is also good but busy). The Venexia is friendly and good value with a good choice. There is also an excellent takeaway pizza place opposite complex (ice & fire i think). Family pizza for approx 13 euros which is huge and very nice - all freshly made while u wait.
Excursions - Venice by day and night is much better than the day trip but all thomson trips are expensive. You are better getting the local bus which includes boat for about 22 euros. There is a water park at Livorno ? best to get the local bus there which is no problem. Very good but 20 euros each to get in. We also hired a car and went to the caves at Slovenia. These were brilliant and definitely recommended. Thomson car hire is useless as you have to go to another town to collect. Ask at reception instead.
One thing we were surprised about was the attitude of the Italians. Generally they were quite rude and arrogant in restaurants and shops. Service was mainly poor. I think this is just the way they come across.

Just had a lovely week at the planetarium, lovely rooms clean and modern. Children loved the pools and a nice walking distance into town.

Reviewed 9 August 2008

Totally self catering holiday complex. Sheets were provided on saturdays and towels on wednesday as part of our package but if you want a cleaning service this is extra and pre-bookable. This was not a problem for us. The appartments are new, large, safe and spotlessly clean.
Bibione is a purpose built resort since the 1960s so there is nothing much historic in the town itself.
Complex is large with a large pool devided with a bridge, a kiddies pool and a water slide which kept the kids amused when they tired of the pool.
Entertainment was largely geared to non english speaking guests which did count for the vast majority though the animation team did try hard. The mini disco was good for the little ones and if you wanted there were aerobics, water polo etc at the pool. We enjoyed eating down in the resort centre about 15 min walk. reccomend "Paron" , "Rosa" ,"Bella pizzeria " "Atmosphera" Theres more restaurants than you could wish for in Bibione and we didnt have one bad meal. Italian ice cream at 1 euro a scoop was fab. Restaurant in complex good for snacks during day but buffet was bad value with poor choice.
There is a supermarket /bakery behind complex as well as a few shops and a pizzeria. There is a bus to the beach in front of the first aid centre you have a lounger and beach chair at the beach.
Take antihistamines for mosquitos. Would like to return, kids loved Italy and felt we hadnt enough time in 14 days.

  • Liked — The space, cleanliness and the slide for the kids.
  • Disliked — lack of cleaners every day as part of package.
