“Just returned from 10 days staying in our cute little pink beach bungalow with Michele and his wonderful staff as our hosts. I guess for us, it was a question of expectation. We had returned from 2 weeks all inclusive in a 5 star hotel in las Palma's recently, of course this was going to be a completely different holiday! We weren't expecting maid service or daily clean towels and dressing for dinner. We had read some unfavorable reviews, but in fairness We felt that all the management information about this accomodation and resort were really accurate, as were the photos. If you want budget accommodation for 2 adults and three kids, in a beautiful part of Italy, with v few other English tourists, then this is a great option. Ok, A few things are a bit tired... But, did nothing to spoil the enjoyment of this place really. We loved the laid back mellow pace to everything. The kitchen was fine, the veranda and view great, 2 bathrooms a bonus and the A/C a godsend. When approached, Michele and his staff talked us through trip options and walked us down to the marina to make our connections, all unprompted. The boat tour to Positano and Amalfi were so much better than I imagined. Ziara was amazing and so informative, and helpful when one of my children were stung by a jellyfish. The resort staff also talked to us about bus timetables to Sorrento etc and local trails to run. They even offered to take fresh bread orders for us in the mornings. The staff in the office and shop and restaurant were always helpful and polite and when one night we didn't have water, came to sort it within minutes. With three kids, I'd sent quite a few confirmation emails and questions to Michele prior to arrival, I have to say he responded in record time and was reassuring ( probably getting a bit sick of me?!). We backpacked years ago quite extensively through Australia and the south Pacific and the set up reminded us of places we stayed along the way. Marina Del Cantone is gorgeous. Lovely bars and restaurants and v laid back feel to the place.
