I visited the Hotel Garden Riviera during June 2014 and found it to be in a fantastic, quiet location just a brief 5min walk from the town centre and beach. Really friendly staff who made you feel welcome straight away and were always happy to help. With a night porter on duty, you can walk in and out at any time, and the views over the bay just complete the package. A very enjoyable stay. Thank you.

We stayed in the Garden Riviera in May, we had booked our wedding in Santa Maria for 17th May which is earlier in the season than the hotel usually opens... we hadn't realised this before we arrived and we'd never have known that they opened especially for us. The rooms were spacious and clean, the views were amazing and the staff were just fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We were made to feel so welcome. The food was fantastic and very reasonable. We look forward to staying at the Garden Riviera again. It is situated on a hill, but we actually enjoyed this walk and after the amount of amazing food we were eating we were
glad of the exercise. They do run a shuttle bus if you don't want to walk.
PS. you must try the Carbonara!

Just returned from an amazing stay here. If you want the most lovely, tranquil hotel then this is it. The staff will bend over backwards to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Located just a small walk out of the town itself means that there is no background noise to interfere with your relaxation. I will definitely be returning in the near future.

I have just returned from a 9 day holiday in Santa Maria Di Castellabate with my family and it was amazing.
The hotel we stayed at was The Garden Riviera and i could not praise it enough.The location is excellent, not only for its close distance to the town and beach but also for its elevated position overlooking the sea.
We have 2 young children and had a family room with a balcony that was very comfortable, clean and cool.We woke up to a lovely breakfast that had lots of choice and everything was so fresh.We also had lunch at the hotel most days and enjoyed trying lots of different dishes, all of which were first class.
The pool was very well looked after and we spent many mornings and afternoons swimming and sunbathing as a family.
The decor in the downstairs of the hotel was very interesting and many original features of the building have been exposed to add to the character of this wonderful hotel.
Never before have i stayed in a place where you are made to feel so welcome.Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they always had a smile on their face.They were so kind and they treated our 2 daughters like little princesses.
Every day got better and better and we were very sad to leave.
We have booked to go back next year and could not recommend this hotel enough.
Roll on next year!!!!

If you visit Santa Maria Di Castellabate you have to promise yourself to stay at the Hotel Garden Riviera. I got married in July and half of our guests stayed there and we couldn't have been happier! First, the staff were so kind, helpful and welcoming. The rooms were very clean, cool, comfortable and homey. Second, the food was so fresh and delicious. Breakfast every morning was set up beautifully and the choices for lunch and dinner were authentic and incredibly tasty. Lastly, Garden Riviera, is the PERFECT place to stay because it sits on a hill just far enough away from the town so you feel like you are in your own private Italian villa. The walk into town is so easy ; you never have to worry about cabs or a driver. Because of where its located, the views are unlike anything else in the area. The sun sets directly in front of you each night and the views of the ocean and town by day are like a fairytale! It truly took my breath away each day. I can't wait to stay with them again!

Came as part of a large group who stayed at this hotel and some others nearby. The location is excellent, high on a hill overlooking the lovely Med and picture-perfect village of Santa Maria down below. Its only a ten minute walk down through the village to the shops, bars, restaurants and beach, or the hotel has a minibus service that's great.

Our room had a nice balcony and was large, clean and airy. Nice clean toilet and shower. Good bed with plenty of sheets etc.

The food was good and service generally fine. Its a small restaurant with a basic range of choices but the quality was good and local ingredients always fresh. Breakfast buffet was fine. Excellent Coffee!

The hotel (well villa really) feels cool and bright in the summer heat and was a pleasure to sit and rewind in with a drink, swim in the pool, or use a base to explore the local area, which is stunning. Lots to see and do. My favorite thing was that the local village was mainly full of Italians and locals rather then hundreds of tourists with no loud bars or tacky shops, everything was authentically Italian and made for a wonderful weekend and a wedding to remember.

Highly recommend visiting this hotel and locality, and my thanks to the staff for the excellent service.
