“Excellent place! Great two day trip”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

What a fantastic adventure Castellabate was! I visited over New Years Eve with my mother and stayed in an apartment. It was a very lovely place with two small balconies with a fantastic view. The apartment had a well-equipped kitchen and we cooked a couple meals ourselves with local pasta and sauce mixes bought at a small store at one of Castellabate’s squares, X Octobre 12**.

Castellabate is definitely worth a two night stay. It’s interesting and beautiful and well exceeded our expectations. But expect lots of stairs! Also visit Santa Maria at the waterfront. If you’re coming by train, get off at Agropoli-Castellabate and call the Residenza d’epoca Tamara directly for pick-up. Better even to arrange in advance by email! They will charge you 25€. We unfortunately got some bozzo taxi driver (with a cross dangling from his mirror, very Catholic) who charged us a flat rate of 50€ and couldn’t even find the place. He even drove us to the wrong town at first! So, call the company and you’ll be fine!

The best part of our stay was by far the people. Ciro, our host from the Residenza, treated us with amazing hospitality. Since we were there over holidays (Dec 31 and Jan 1) the buses weren’t running so he personally offered to drive us twice to Santa Maria for free, on 1 Jan just to visit and on 31 Dec he called around and found probably the last available table for New Years Eve in the whole region down in Santa Maria and reserved it for us. New Years Eve is popular, one has to reserve a table well in advance like anywhere in the world. We ended up at an amazing restaurant and it was a really fun party actually. During the dance we were introduced and announced by the DJ that we were guests from Canada and all the locals were extremely welcoming.

Castellabate is an amazing experience, go!

The staff here are super friendly, and the apartments? Very clean, large and situated right on the edge of paradise. The restaurant here is also superb. Once you get into Castallabate, just follow the signs to 'Tamara' and you'll find it!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with a view to maximise the awesomeness.

i booked a holiday for me and my partner via booking.com for a week at the end of September.
Our stay was unforgetable experience.The director,Raffaele, was very friendly and helpful,the apartment was with amazing sea view,the food in Principesa restaurant was great especialy fish dishes.
The towels and linens were changed on a regular base,very clean and tidy.
Very organised with regular public transport from the hotel to the beach which takes just 5 minutes.
I even went to the reception and asked to have an organised trip to Paestum and Vesuvio and i got it arranged promptly.
It is in a very good location for both sightseeing (only 20 minutes from Paestum and an hour from Pompei )and relax as well.
There is a regular service by boat from the port to famous Capri in a day trip.

Customer service was unbeatable and i would higly recomend this place to everyone.
