“Incredible experience”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Although we were probably some of the last, if not the last, guests of the season, we were welcomed warmly and offered drinks upon our arrival. We enjoyed the laidback ambience, comfy rooms, and the warm, empty beach just a short walk away.

The most amazing thing about our stay was the delicious "lunch" that the owner/manager prepared for the two of us on our second day--pasta carbonera, tomatoes, cannolis and memorable homemade red wine! This meal was prepared with so much care and love that we were completely "bowled over." We were also so full that we passed on dinner that evening, a rare event in our travels!

Thank you La Locanda del Mare for making our stay in Paestum so spectacular and personable!

We stayed here for one night (time did not permit more unfortunately). Lovely rural location, not commercialised, just yards from the beach, not a soul in sight on the beach in March. Simple but very nice rooms, motel style blocks but better than that. It was wonderfully quiet and we discovered they were not really fully open for the season yet. We were treated like royalty by the manager Domenico who made up a special dining table for two in front of the log fire in their award winning restaurant, candles all round. We had no idea what we would be served. But course after course of the most delicious food kept coming, all of it excellent, along with the local red wine which was also very good and decanted from the bottle into a carafe. All of it was very stylish. In the end we had to beg for the courses to stop coming, though it was all so inviting. The chef, Antonio, had been brought in specially to cook for us that night, from some distance away, and together with Domenico they gave us not only the best meal we have ever had in Italy, with the friendliest service by far, but one of the best anywhere.
We were not given a bill that night, and expected to pay quite a lot for all this excellence, but the next morning – after being confronted by an outstanding breakfast buffet with many items prepared by Antonio - we were staggered at how reasonable the cost was, especially when compared to the mediocre food and high prices in the tourist traps of Pompeii. This is just a superb place that made us feel very happy and we thank Domenico and Antonio for making it so memorable.

I spent 2 nights at Locanda del Mare with my partner and found it relaxingly perfect. The room (in a bungalow amidst a pinewood) is quite pleasant and endowed with a flat-screen tv, a small refrigerator, a safe and particular furniture, and a wooden floor that contrasts with the white color of the whole structure. The main building houses a collection of "art-like" pieces of furniture, a library and a stage for music entertainment (some famous singers have performed). Buffet breakfast is not sumptuous but you may find from "cornetti", home-made cakes, cereals + yoghurt to salami and cheese, just ask for the latter. All in all, a perfect stay in one of the most charming areas of southern Italy.
