Could use a bin, mat and a side table in the cabin room.

September was a great month to see the Amalfi Coast and it wasn't crowd. We stayed five nights at Santafortunata. The village is nice, with private beach and the breakfast is diverse. To get to the city center you have to walk for 20 min, but they have a shuttle for 1 euro each way. We stayed in a mobile house for six and it was great: had private bathroom, kitchen, fridge and a view. Linens are clean. Airing the house a little bit would be perfect.
A great base for exploring Capri, amalfi coast, Pompeii etc. if you like camping you will love it here. Very relaxing to be out of the city, however the sorrento town is a short bus trip or a 20min walk. We were only going to stay for 3 nights and ended up staying a week. So much to see and explore. Breakfast is included as well which for the price is amazing for people traveling on a budget.
Great location. Loved the private beach. Amazing water and place to chill out. We had a cute bungalow which was in a quiet area and close to WC. Clean facilities good free breakfast. Easy to get up and down to sorrento. You can even walk if you want. Buses are a little annoying. Sometimes they are late or don't come but hey it's Italy! Enjoy!
It should be clearly defined what type of place is Resort Campogaio. It is not a hostel, it is a camping site. Is not clear, because it is listed as part of Hostelworld. Furthermore, there are not enough photos in the site to get a clear picture of what kind of place it is. When you arrive, you realize that it is a camping site, and that you don't get rooms like in a hostel, but "huts". And that the bathroom is shared with a lot (a lot) of people. You don't get your room cleaned daily.
I loved my little cabin high up on a hill overlooking the little beach below where I went swimming most days. I wasn't quite so impressed when I booked the shuttle to take heavy suitcase back up to reception and pay-out on the final day and it didn't arrive leaving me toiling up the hill in the hot sun.
Our only criticism would be the noisy music/children's disco/show that went on near the pool every single night. Our cabin was near the area, as were a number of other cabins, and the noise was pretty annoying. It started at about 10:00pm every single night until midnight (too late for kids!). The music played near the pool during the day was at an acceptable level, but the night was too loud. The cabins are warm as well, so an open window was a necessity and made escaping the noise impossible.
Great value for money and well located for exploring the surrounding Sorrento area. A fan in the cabin would be a great addition as it was quite warm when we went to sleep. The private beach was an excellent bonus. The pool and beach could stay open longer in summer when the sun sets later. We did the Capri tour and loved it, the only let down was the organisation and the fact our tour guide/boat captain didn't speak a word of english! Will recommend this place to family and friends.
It was ok. Free breakfast was nice.
We really enjoyed our time here at Campogaio. We stayed in a little cabin that had electricity with a shared bathroom. The views over Sorrento and the surrounding area are amazing! The biggest downfall for here was the staff. The staff didn't care at all about its customers, especially in the restaurant. We only ate dinner once at the restaurant and ended up having to wait over 2 hours to get our food as they just ignored us, and when they did finally take our order, they got it wrong.
Pros: - Close to the Roman Ruins and Baths of Regina Giovanni - The Resort offers tours to Capri, Positano, and other places at affordable rates - Great view of the Naples bay from the cabin that we stayed at Cons: - Breakfast isn't the best, especially the coffee. - The internet is pay-per-use; a contrast to other hostels where it was free given the price we paid per night. - Everything is cash only.
Great place to stay in the summer. Amazing setting up on the cliffs with a private beach, the free breakfast was really good and the cabins and bathrooms were clean and functional.
Really enjoyed the stay but the ants were. Problematic in our cabin.
I got a bit lost on my way there but basically ask everyone which bus to take and then tell the bus driver where you need to get off. Once you're there, it's much easier. It's a quiet and peaceful location, a really beautiful one at that. They have their own "beach" with wonderful view of the bay and rocky cliffs for you to sit on. It's absolutely gorgeous. The restaurant is pretty decent and good value. The shared bathroom facilities are actually kept very clean.
The campground was just outside Sorrento, approx 10 minutes by bus. The bus stop is right in front of the camp ground and you can buy tickets from the front desk. We stayed cabin w/ shared bath. The bathrooms were cleaned every morning. The rock beach has a million dollar view w/ lots of sea urchins, starfish, etc for those who like to snorkel. The bus trip along the Amalfi Coast is a must see; beautiful views.
This place is a hidden gem. The views are spectacular! The bathrooms/showers are clean. The bus stop is close and the camp ground sells tickets. The only bad thing was breakfast which is included. The orange juice and coffee are not good, but the little chocolate croissants are! They have a private rock beach and you can take a boat to Capri from there. We would definitely stay again probably in a bigger cabin.
Great campsite! Really good facilities including pool, private beach and restaurant. A little far out of town but there is a bus stop right out the front.
Loved our little cabin and were very happy overall. Great value for money as breakfast included and only 15 minute walk down the hill into Sorrento town centre. Would definitely recommend and would stay again
overall was really happy with the stay. the bungalows, access to the beach and views were great. close location to town would definitely recommend to family and friends only disappointment was the staff. they were very unwilling to give help and trying to get any information off them was painful. we were not only given wrong information but they also were dishonest and manipulated us into using their internal transfer to the station by lying about a taxi fare.
