We stayed for a couple of nights - and this was just the place to be as far as we were concerned. A wedding was in full swing but we were told that we could use the pool next door. Other than that we were able to use the hotel facilities - including the restaurant for dinner. We had a... More

In simple terms, overall excellence to detail. Would stay again in a heart beat. The stay was great from the bellhop to reception to cleanliness to waiter services to meals and finally to checkout. Oh, the grounds were immaculate. A wedding was taking place and as we watched from our balcony it could not be improved.

I can reflect all the good things other reviewers have shared. We stayed here three nights at the end of our holiday. The hotel is beautiful, with lovely gardens, floodlit at night, and a fabulous pool. We asked for a quiet room (as we are older, grumpier travellers and need our sleep). We had a room over the front door... More

i was working at an archaeological dig in Basilicata and got a ride from there to Battapaglia, where I caught a bus to Paestum on a Friday evening.I had already checked with the Italian Antiquities Authority to observe the restoration work going on at the temples and planned to spend all the next 2 days at it.

the hotel is very close to the temples of Paestum and also close to the beach. We enjoyed the dinner very much and the breakfast had a good quality as well!!! Very good service. There is also a cosy bar and during summer one can sit outside which is beautiful as well

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
