Bottom Line

Popular with vacationing families, the 330-room Victor Village Resort is a good option for those wanting to spend their vacation swimming and sunbathing. There's a big outdoor pool surrounded by trees and a small hotel shuttle that resembles a train carries guests to the sandy beach, which has an on-site bar and restaurant. There are plenty of outdoor recreation areas and a kids' club to entertain the children. The village has both time-share properties and standard rooms of varying quality, some of which have been renovated. Guests looking for a more low-key destination may want to consider Hotel Club Astor, a mid-range hotel that, unlike the Victor Village, offers free Wi-Fi.

Scene

Village fit for families with kids' club and pretty pool area

Catering to both the time-share owners and the hotel guests, the Victor Village Resort has plenty to do for families, and a lot of guests come to the resort with their kids. Common areas include a minimalist lobby with beige tiles and stark white furniture and large, lushly landscaped grounds. The big pool area has lounge chairs and parasols as well as shaded seating areas with tables is in a pretty setting surrounded by grassy lawns dotted with palm trees. 

Location

Direct beach access via a nature reserve 

The hotel is next to a nature reserve and a path runs through the pine forest to the local beach, which can also be reached via the hotel shuttle. It’s a 12-minute drive to the center of Torre San Giovanni, and a 35-minute drive from both Gallipoli -- an active fishing port with several dining options -- and Santa Maria di Leuca, on the southernmost tip of the Salento peninsula. The Galatina Airport is just under an hour away by car.

Rooms

Rooms vary; some lack air-conditioning and need decor updates

Renovated rooms have tile floors, white walls, minimal decor and modern furnishings such as flat-screen TVs and sleek headboards with matching bureaus. Red couches and clear chairs add a touch of style. Some rooms lack air-conditioning and have only ceiling fans as well as outdated furniture. Rooms with kitchenettes equipped with refrigerators, stoves, and microwaves are available, and some rooms have furnished yellow tile patios.

Features

Big pool, shuttle to beach, and plenty of activities

The hotel has a big, outdoor swimming pool with a pool bar. A charming orange-and-white train shuttle carries guests to the sandy beach area where a DJ plays music, and a bar serves ice cream, snacks, and drinks. Guests can dine under ceiling fans at the beach restaurant and enjoy the ocean air. There’s also a pizzeria on the property as well as shops selling souvenirs, clothing, and pharmacy items. The hotel has a spa with a sauna and a fitness center with several benches and free weights. An outdoor relaxation pool is available, but guests have to make a reservation to use it. There are archery, tennis, and soccer areas, and two kids' clubs (one for children aged four to 10 and another for older kids) with activities teams that guide activities. Wi-Fi is available for a fee.
