Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this hotel. Palinuro is a fantastic place to stay and if youy are going there stay at the Baia. Genuine Italian experience with real food, tastefully decorated, spacious room, fantastic view.

When I asked my Italian friends with Legambiente (www.legambiente.com) for a good holiday place with good beaches, unspoilt countryside and a rich cultural and historial environment they did not hesitate a second and advised me to go to the Cilento region / Palinuro region.
Via internet I found the Baia Hotel in Palinuro and booked a holiday for three weeks (11 until 31 July 2009).
The Baia Hotel is a nice family hotel in two ways: the personnel that runs it is like a big family and their service is most friendly and pleasant. For me the hotel is neither too luxurious nor too simple.
On the other hand many, mainly Italian families stay in the hotel. Some 90 % of the guests are Italian. Often they come as one big family consisting of grandparents, parents and grandchildren.
The location of the hotel: it is near the beach, and the terrace has a wonderful view on the sea. The beach near the hotel is rocky and for this reason the hotel made an arrangement with a private beach (2 to 3 km away) to be used by the hotel guests. The hotel operates a shuttle service (free of charge) to this beach some six times per day. This private beach is perfect.

Food:
Breakfast is good. The guests take it on the terrace, overlooking the sea.
In the morning the guests are presented the menu for a three course dinner in the evening and they are requested to make their choice. The food is prepared with great care and is of good / excellent quality. I enjoyed every meal I had.

The Room
I had a perfect room with balcony with a wide view on the sea. I enjoyed the shade on the balcony, which was there until about 2 p.m. .

Cilento Region:
The Cilento Region has been made a National Park. I expected beforehand to find a rather bare countryside, but the opposite was true. There is a very rich vegetation and it is a beautiful region that can compete very well with Tuscany, but it is much less touristic.

We just returned from the Cilento coast and had a great time. We loved the Hotel Baie. It is a small hotel with a very friendly atmosphere .The staff particularly Madelina were anxious to help us with touring plans and restaurant recommendations whenever we needed them.Our room was a little small but had a great view of the sea.It was very clean and comfortable.The location of the hotel was perfect for us being just a few minutes walk to the pedestrian street where eveyone gathers in the evenings. We found the breakfast adequate.The outside terrace however was a wonderful place to start the day. When a lot of people showed up at the same time,the two people serving could have used some help. They have a shuttle service taking you to their private beach.We had a car so we drove for about ten minutes and were happy to find that we got parking,seats and umbrellas at no additional charge.I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again .

We were transtered to the Baia Hotel by our holiday rep as our booked hotel Il Gabbiano was unsuitable.Upon arrival at The Baia Hotel we were greeted by very freindly and helpfull staff in a lovely reception area. As we entered our room we could see a magnificent sunset through our window. Our room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated and included a tv, safe and mini bar. During our holiday the hotel was beautifully presented and every member of staff couldn`t have been friendlier or more helpfull and even though we spoke very little italian they gave us a first class service with a smile.
There was a lovely beach a short walk away and the hotel has a private beach further away that the staff offered to take us to and from.The hotel is well situated for local shops,restaurants and bars, the resort of Palinuro is very friendly and relaxing though I understand it becomes busier and livelier later in the season.
I would certainly go back to the Baia and would recommend it to anybody
A big thankyou to the Baia and all its staff.

We were asked by our holiday rep to view the "Baia" as the hotel we had booked the Il Gabbiano, was unsuitable and we were going to change resort. When we arrived at the "Baia" we were met by two very friendly members of staff and given tea and snacks. We were shown around different rooms and offered whichever one we wanted. The room we chose overlooked the beautiful Palinuro Bay and the famous sunset. The members of staff were so friendly and the hotel so clean and fresh we gladly agreed to remain in the resort at the Baia. Throughout our stay we found all the staff very helpful and interested in what we were doing each day, they offerred help and advice as the Holiday rep had become ill and the emergancy 24hr number switched off. The hotel staff were professional in their duties but still made us feel like one of the family. The breakfasts were well presented with fresh bread, fruit and meat each morning, we did not eat evening meals in the hotel but on some mornings were shown the fresh fish for preparation for the evening time. The Baia is a clean, fresh well positioned hotel, near to the junction of the two main streets and close to the beach although it does have it's own private beach which the hotel will transport you to. The staff are as I said earlier very friendly and always helpful. The resort of Palinuro is laid back and restful, a bit like the extreme West of Ireland only with great weather. We would have no hesitation in returning to the Baia if visiting Palinuro again
