“Lovely Hotel for a relaxing quiet holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We stayed here for a week in May and found the hotel very nice. The apartments are lovely and spacious and the hotel grounds and pool idyllic.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

This hotel is geared towards the wedding and conference industry and it was often busy with these events and we were often the only guests staying in the hotel, which was unusual.

To explore the area you do need a car and this was disappointing as we didn't want to drive around. The hotel is in an isolated position unless you just want to relax round the pool or go on the beach, which is just a short walk away.

Excellent hotel with great surroundings. The pool was fantastic - our kids loved it! - and the beach is only a short walk away. Rooms are spacy and clean, though interiour decoration could be more cozy :-) And drinks at breakfast could include freshly pressed juices..... Reception staff is very friendly and helpful. I would for sure stay there again!

Stayed at the Minerva Resort on May 12, 2013 for a cousins wedding. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel grounds and pool were beautiful. The hotel is very clean and the food was good. Very close to the ocean. The room was clean and spacious, but a little out dated. I would send family and friends to this hotel. I would also stay here again.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in had two bedroom and was very large and clean

First of all the staff is not friendly - we didn`t feel welcome in this hotel at all - starting from reception and finishing with waiters.
Second - they have a lot of weddings going on almost each day which is absolutely annoying for hotel guests - we couldn`t use pool, halls, restaurantsl because they were full of wedding guests. The music from weddings was on till much over midnight. So we felt like really we didn`t pay our money to stay here, but were kindly given a refuge at somebody else`s party.
Third - beach was not a great experience as well - we were not given beach towels and we ere very suprised that they could only give us 1 beach lounger and 1 chair - when there were 2 of us and we really expected we could lie and relax on the beach.
And last thing dinners and breakfasts were served in a gloomy basement floor which didn`t contribute to a nice summer relaxing experience. And there was no alternative around - almost no restaurants outside hotel, no shops, no anything - the plce is very isolated.
We will not recommend this hotel to travellers who wish to have relaxing and comfortable summer vacation.

My husband and me stayed here for two weeks on our holiday in summer 2010. We loved this hotel very much. It is elegant and modern, very quiet for relaxing holiday. For this area of Italy is very rear to find hotel on the sandy beach, but here you can find just that, so you can spend your time at the seaside or on large swimming pool. The food is wonderful, very delicious, just like in some great Italyan restaurant and it is included in your half board. This is very well runed family hotel and the stuff is very helpfull and friendly. About 1,5 km from hotel is archeological area of Paestum, wich I recommend for visiting. Also, the "must see" for this region of Italy are Pompei, city of Naples, Capri island and Amalfi coast wich is very charming. Go and visit all this places and you will have unforgettable holiday.

I was looking for a place to stay for a night but I ended on passing all my holiday here, in part for this land yet to be discovered, in part for the wonderful hotel that I’m mentioning the Minerva Resort Hotel. I was with my family (4 of us) and we took a very comfortable apartment with 2 rooms and a living room (coasted less then 2 rooms, and was bigger)….All the staff like all people here are very friendly and helpful, they suggested a lot of activities and trips. Everything was great the hotel, the huge outside pool they have, the sea is at 200m and the food not mentioning about the food they are preparing here is absolutely delicious!!!
I strongly advice you to book here and I attach the web site www.minervaresorthotel.it
