Cala Corvino

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 10, 2004

Cala Corvino is situated on the northern outskirts of the small town Monòpoli (4km from the center). Overlooking the Adriatic Sea, all apartments in this modern development have large balconies or sun terraces. Actually, there two resorts in this complex on the shore of the Corvino Bay: Hotel Villaggio Cala Corvino (northern part, towards Bari) and Cala Corvino Club II (southern part, towards Monòpoli). The resorts have been affiliated with the RCI since 1990. Between these two resorts visitors will find six domes which host administrative personal and the restaurant. You will find the reception and all you need inside the big dome – here you check in, check out (you can do it a night before if you plan to leave early). The reception open 24x7 but the night shift does not speak English. The resort was the only place where we could see the American flag waiving (no Canadian though).

The beautiful Adriatic Coast and magnificent climate combine with a host of local attractions and sporting activities can make Cala Corvino a delightful vacation destination. Unfortunately, the last week of May when we stayed was rainy and cold. Entertainment program starts in June, do not expect much activities in May.
Other amenities include swimming pool, open-air restaurant, small open-air theatre and access to the beach which is approximately 200m away.

Unique Quality: Our 2 bedroom unit could allow to sleep up 6 people. We had double bed in the master bedroom, sofa bed and bunk bed in the second bedroom, partial kitchen and two shower rooms, including a toilet and washbasin. Yes. Our unit had a telephone and television with Italian channels only.

There is a big supermarket called ?Sisa? or ?C7? , 800m from the resort towards the town, open Mon Sat 9 ? 8PM (in theory, it suppose to be open on Sun 9 ? noon). Even closer, 300m or so is the Sam?s Club like store called Cash and Carry (it sells everything in bulk but if you ask politely they will sell you small quantity). The local bus links the area with downtown (the resort is the last stop on the route). The bus runs Mon ? Sat every hour and costs 0.80 Euro one way. There is a shuttle service on request (for a charge) from the resort to Bari airport and train station (it is much less expensive than the local taxi). The resort offers some excursions; you can bring you own ideas and the staff will do their best to help.

The resort area is in excellent condition, the staff is friendly and eager to help. Bear in mind though that the residence located on the outskirts of the town, with industrial zone to the south and east and potato fields to the north. Every other day or so you can smell something strange ? the factory nearby processes olive oil, the locals explain. In conclusion, the area is inexpensive (food, wine and clothes) and offers several interesting sightings.
