Stayed here with a Air Transat deal for one week. We enjoyed the hotel and the location a 5 minute walk to the beach. We biked to the ruins in Paestum and also biked to Agropoli with the hotel bikes. The ride to Paestum was approx 30 min and to Agropoli approx 1.5 hr, by slow bicycle riding and stops along the way.
The hotel was very relaxing and quiet through the week. It got busy for the weekend with a wedding and more weekend guests, however it did not affect the relaxing feel and great service.
It costs approx 10 euros to take a taxi to Cappacio, where there is a train or bus.
We usually walked to Cappacio to the train, it took us 40 minutes approx to walk to the train from the hotel.
All the people that worked at the hotel were very helpful with directions and making us feel welcome.
The breakfast was buffet daily from 0730 -1000. Cornetto's (italian croissants) with jam, cream, plain or chocolate. Provolone with salami or ham. Also cold cereals with milk or yogurt. Coffee, espresso, latte or various teas. Also panettone.
For dinner it was always different and fresh. We would choose our selection for dinner the night before. The first course was always pasta, followed by a meat dish with 2 veggie side dishes. Then there was a dessert. The meals were served in a beautiful white dining room all marble. The meals were served with white or red wine. The red wine was not to my liking, very acidic. However the white was fantastic.
We travelled around from the area to Pompeii, Amalfi and Sorrento.
We really enjoyed that this hotel was not in a busy area and that there was no bus in town gave the area a very relaxed feel. The whole stay was fantastic.
