We stayed in the hotel as a couple some 10 days in August. Overall feeling is quite positive, somewhere 4,5 on 5 point scale.
A) Hotel: quite big structure with not that much rooms. Very spacious hall, looking like in luxurious hotel - which it is. The "basement" (on the level with garden and swimming pool) was fully dedicated to weddings or empty conference halls (in summer).
B) Position: Paestum itself is a bit in the middle of nowhere and the hotel is just between Torre di Paestum and Laura localities. Car is a must if you would like to see anything else than hotel and beach.
C) Room: our room was Deluxe on 1st floor, quite big, properly furnished (business style a bit, which was ok for us). Reasonable big balcony (all rooms on 1st floor facing northwards have balcony, rooms to south not. A minus was a view. While there is perfect view on distant hills above Paestum, there is huge restaurant roof ending just on top of balcony railings - see the picture. Request 2nd floor room if possible. Pillows just as bad as in nearly all Italian hotels.
D) Restaurant: Breakfast: good variety with fresh mozzarella and mortadella, minus: no eggs (probably on surcharge - we did not try). Dinner: Amazing food, concentrated on fish and see-food, but good other variety. We had half-board paid and we could choose any 2 meals from starters, first and second plates (selection from 5 or six of each, different every day in week) + dessert (6 standard same every day plus from time to time some special one). There could be some special menu from time to time with necessary surcharge to HB (our 'gala dinner' was included in HB). Live piano music played every evening.
E) Pool and garden: both great, pool can be reserved some evening for wedding or some party (we had 2 weddings and 1 party within 10 days). Minus: Music played in distant restaurant/terrace good and not that loud, but the same every day - should be changed more frequently or stopped.
F) Beach: good with all necessary services, just 100 meters from hotel. Umbrella and sunbeds free (at least for us). This part of shore is not overcrowded even in August as there is not much hotels there.
G) Service: quite good, we had not working hairdrier and it was promptly resolved. A bit more smiles from the restaurant personal would be appreciated.
H) Others: Bicycle rent: 5EUR/hour - we did not try. Car parking: no problem. Indoor swimming pool and sauna out of order in summer.
I) Must see in neighbourhood: Paestum temples, Nice to see: Argopoli.
