I would like to rate this hotel as excellent right through but the unwillingness to/inability to vary its policy on not bringing on its air-con before its advertised period despite a week of soaring temperatures diminished the experience of staying there. (Hence the 3 on service)
Otherwise large comfortable rooms (variably equipped; some had small kitchens); all with a sea view, food excellent, complimentary local wine, spacious & comfortable lounge, cool corridors (with foliage), pool, private beach, friendly staff.
We were with a Travelsphere "Cilento Coast" tour with trips to the archeological sites of Paestum and Elia included. The neighbouring resort of Santa Maria is 40 minutes away and there is a local bus. It's also possible to reach Agropoli by bus. Otherwise San Marco is a small village with limited retail and alternate eateries,
The area of the Cilento Coast is largely undiscovered by the British tourist industry but is very attractive.
I'd go again but during July or August when I could be certain the air-con was opertaing.
