Hotel Mareluna
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in San Marco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2013

My friends and i stayed at this hotel for three nights. It was very nice by Italian standards, very clean, a nice full breakfast buffet, clear pool, close beaches. The place had many families with young, well-behaved children as well as some older people. It is difficult to find places in Italy that are accessible for people with mobility problems but this town and hotel were almost wheelchair accessible (a few stairs and slopes but much less than other places). The staff were nice and unobtrusive.

San Marco is not very picturesque but it is close to many interesting places and the sea is cleaner than beaches closer to cities.

Room Tip: There are rooms with views of the sea and others without. If you want to save money, ask for a room...

The idea to visit Castellabate is obviously waved by the Italian movie "Welcome to the South" (Benvenutti al Sud). So if you have the same reason to visit Castellabate, don't hesitate to go to the Mareluna Hotel in San Marco di Castellabate.
The hotel is good in general: position, sea-view, parking etc. Anyway, in particularities some bad things happen. For example the worst thing is that Wi-Fi is only available at the reception zone. Come on, guys! The extra router's price is some 50 bucks, and they would let me forget all the rest and give the hotel maximum 5 points. Also I had a broken shower holder and slightly leaking shower trunk.
Yes, I must admit that it's not critical, yet I also must admit that I was there in early May, i.e. in the in the beginning of the season, what means that the owners of the hotel try to save as much as possible on us, guys, on dear clients. Another sign of that is very poor breakfast.
Finally I must let you know that the staff of the hotel is excellent. All the people are very polite, nice, ready to help you, give advice and all the rest what we mean, saying good words about hotel's staff.
To be short, I recommend this hotel. In Italian understanding it's a good hotel, though my opinion is that it's not a 4-star hotel, 3 stars is maximum.
P.S. There are no special pool or beach towels. I'd rather recommend the hotel to have it at least for some extra money.

What really lifts the mareluna from good to great is the charm and attentiveness of the people who work there. The hotel was clean, modern and functional - perhaps not the most charming, and the breakfasts might have benefitted from the addition of some of the many fresh products from Cilento - but the front of house team were really top notch (thank you!) and would have done a hotel 10 times the price proud. Really did all they could and much more to make our first trip to this beautiful, unpretentious part of Italy truly memorable. Benvenuti al Sud!

I can't recommend the Hotel Mareluna enough. It provided excellent value for money and was at all times absolutely spotless and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, offering us a cup of coffee on arrival after our drive from Roma. San Marco itself is idyllic although a week is long enough to use it as a base as there is very little to speak of in the sleepy little village itself. The absolute highlight of this hotel is the fact that it has a little beach at the bottom of it's steps where all the locals congregate on hot afternoons. This reasonably priced hotel provided us with a 5* experience....can't recommend enough.
Ti amo Cilento! ;-)

We went to this hotel by chanse. And what a good one! The location by the sea in the small town of San Marco is excellent. The rooms are very clean and nice. ( the beds in Italy are often too hard for a big Norwegian guy - here too). The food is good - we had half board. The staff was for the most very serviceminded and nice! And the region og Agropoli and Castellabate is really worth visisting. Don't miss Paestum. It's breathtaking!

I went to this hotel for a week end in June. I found out that this is the best choice in terms of place and time of year. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel layout is original and rooms are very confortable. It was recently renovated and every room is very large with air conditioning and a confortable w.c. Moreover, each room has a beautiful patio to stay at nights. There is a confotable free beach very close (<150ft.) but it needs to get a stair of about 30 steps. The hotel has a shuttle service for a private beach at less than 5 minutes.
