My partner and I stayed in the Hotel Esplanade in late August for 4 nights. As I was driving down the coast road from Salerno, my heart was sinking. What I thought would be a lovely beech side area is very commercial and grubby. However, to my great relief as we approach the area of the hotel things improved significantly... More

The hotel itself is situated in a nice area, about 5 minutes walk from the private beach. The hotel was much more nicer, than we could expect. Yes, it is a wedding or party paradise, but for us it is still better than a hotel with a lot of kids or disco evenings etc. The hotel is not big, as... More

This is a great hotel, the staff , the surroundings etc, etc, and the restaurant is brilliant. I would definitely stay here again, there are some roman ruins and temples very near that are well worth the visit.

We stayed here in mid-October on a Wednesday - very quiet and the beach area pretty much closed down. Planned on visiting Paestum the next day, so this was a good choice. No wifi in the rooms, but it worked fine in the lobby. Had dinner in the dining room - the 25 euro menu and it was excellent. Breakfast... More

The most attentive, friendly staff never left any wishes open. The cuisine always was superb and offered delicious and interesting Italian dishes. The hotel beach is just a few steps away through dunes and a few pines, equipped with deckchairs, umbrellas and service staff even there. Several weddings were celebrated while we were there, but apart from the jointly used... More

We were passing through Paestum, on the way south to Sicily and stopped here for the night. Now, I gotta tell you that this is a strange little place. Lots of old Greek ruins and an old timey beach scene- like Coney Island. Beach front spots and tons of Camping places with plenty of dives. That notwithstanding, this hotel is... More

At first impression the hotel exudes modernity.The grounds and landscape are impressive as is the pool area. Rooms are well appointed and modern. Front desk service was friendly and efficient. Maria took good care of us throughout our stay. We ate one evening meal at their dining hall and weren't diaspointed. All in all a bargain.

There are lots of positives about this hotel. The location is perfect if you want to use the hotel as a base to explore the area. Paestum's centre is approximately two miles away. It is an historical treasure trove with three magnificent Greek temples to marvel at, Roman ruins and an incredible museum filled with perfectly preserved Greek artifacts. It... More

We spent the night here, arriving about 4pm. There was a wedding in progress and we enjoyed walking in the grounds and seeing what was going on - Italian-style. Although the room was compact it had everything in place and was very clean. The shower was blocked but that was resolved within 10 minutes - I've waited hours in some... More

Don't be fooled by the hotel's pictures. This hotel is in the middle of nowhere,surrounded by houses and there is nothing else to do by the way of local shops, restaurants or anything else that you can explore by walking to. The hotel clearly favours wedding clients to the exclusion of normal holidaymakers. We were told on many occasions that... More
