"Very small houses and a very noisy pool area"
There are various types of houses. We were in the biggest ones and the first thing we asked eachother was: where is the livingroom... Outside ofcourse, but the table of our neighbours (left and right) was max 2 meters away so we felt a bit like sardines. In the pool area (big pool) they play very loud music and noisy animation almost all day. Every night there was a childrensdisco till 23:30 and there is no way you can not hear it except when you leave the grounds. Had to pay for WiFi, which is something we didn't have to do in Italy for a long time. Beds were old and fixed with wooden boards. The place is not that expensive so not fair to complain a lot, but more than a few days I wouldn't go there.

Nothing is inclued: you have to pay +25€/week just for the swimmingpool, because if you take their shuttle to the beach (included) the place where they leave you is very very dirty and you have to pay if you don't want to be closed to garbages (and the sea here is full of waste). Be aware that the wifi is not free. On Air BnB website "costa alta" also shows pictures of a sauna and a gym that are not in this place... and not free. The equipement inside the kitchen was very basic... and the surface of the bungalows for 4 adults is small. Moreover, when we tried to explain that we were not satisfied about the provide services, the host was not kind and not fair. So, now, just be aware...
"Good little place to stay"

We stayed three nights here. The chalet was basic, and we had to air out the bathroom a lot (the old tiles seemed to hold unpleasant smells), but the view from our window was amazing. The staff here were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The pool was good (remember to wear swimming caps). Our kids only had chance to play on the park for one day, because then it was closed for renovations. There was breakfast included. Good location with shops nearby and two public beaches (that we found). You have a small kitchenette with a gas hob for basic cooking, and a fridge.

Costa Alta was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was amazing and we had one of the most relaxing holidays there. Perfect location as well as it is close to a mini market where you can get your essentials from and only a short walk to the train station. Will definitely be visiting again.
"Amazing, beautiful, friendly, quality"

Villagio Costa Alta is an excellent location for families, close to Sorrento, but more quite and nicer. wanting access to the excitement of Amalfi Peninsula without having to be in the middle of it. The pool is OK. Amazing access to the beach with buses provided by the Resort. Bungalows are spacious, good for 4-6 people. My family enjoyed stay over there. Relaxing and refreshing.
"Never ever ever again"

What a disgusting place. I think a prison would have been cleaner and with better facility's. The smell of the room is something I can never forget and the main double bed was 2 single beds pushed together. I can honestly say I have never ever been to a worse place than this and my family and I have travelled a lot. So over all rude staff, disgusting conditions and cleanliness, terrible beds and really bad facilities nothing works. I don't care how cheap they are they should have paid me to stay there

We love Sorrento and been here many times. It happens that we should stay just 2 nights before move in our usual place to stay. We read lot of positive reviews but... Our experience was absolutely terrible! Of course, there are not 'shalets' as they say - there are some small cabing from horror movies... We had no towels and the receptionist after asking us - "Do you need any?" dissapeared forever. A/C was broken, there was no bulb in a small bed lamp... But you can cope...in the end of the day it is very cheap accomodation and you can compromise with some things . You can cope with broken knife and greasy cutlery...it is not very easy to make cup of coffee from the sousepan - they have no kettles or anything like that...BUT!!!!...Both nights, just after 10pm we had very 'lovely' neighbours who was drinking, shouting, laughung, etc till 3am...When we try to reasoning them...you understand what their response was...But to our surprise the response from the reseptionist was almost the same - We are not responsible...We can do nothing... So, it was our real nightmare. Never ever go to this horrible hole.
"Lacking in quality, both accommodation and customer service"
09/22/13 Michellew1982 Manchester, United Kingdom
We arrived here with low expectations, given the price, but after a tiring journey from Rome. Arrived at 2.30 (check in advertised as from 2pm) to be told our chalet wouldn't be ready for 45 minutes, due to cleaning. An hour and a half of sitting around later we finally got access to our accommodation. It was less than clean, with an odd dirty smell and was clearly the worst of all chalets in the park. This is a place popular for school trips, we were surrounded by loud teenagers, which wouldn't have been so bad but the other, more tranquil part of the park was empty. When we asked to be moved we were told there was nothing else available. The reception on the TV is dreadful and only gives you half the channels. The air conditioning does not work at all. The wifi must be paid for and is very bad quality with very slow speeds and cuts off periodically. The town is a good 10 minute walk uphill on roads often without footpaths, and with very inconsiderate drivers. The town itself is lovely and the regular circumvesuviana trains are great for seeing the sites. The pool at Costa Alta is beautiful but, strangely, you can't go in without a swimming cap. This is a get what you pay for site but with only a few small changes could have been great. Still feel that we paid over the odds for what we got though and I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it to anyone.
"Nice little place"
This is a nice family resort, although some of the music played around the pool was quite offensive to British families. There were mainly Italian and French families here and I'm not sure they realised what they were listening to, but I have mentioned this directly to the resort as I think they may be unaware that some of the lyrics of certain uk modern songs are quite inappropriate for young children!!. That aside, this is a lovely family run place, the staff were extremely helpful. The accommodation was basic, but clean and all that you needed. There are several local supermarkets where you can get what you else you may need. We used this as a base for the area really, so didn't spend a lot of time here, our children are teenagers and we did a lot of touring about. There did seem to be groups of school children staying here which was a bit rowdy at times, but again this didn't bother us too much as we were out much of the day. All in all this was a lovely holiday. The resort is very near the train station to places like Sorrento and Pompeii, I wouldn't recommend driving around here, the roads can be very narrow. The trains are very close by and easy to use.
"Perfect family holiday!"
