The only pitfall is the location which is not a glamour place, although very good gateway for the amazing "costiera Amalfitana". For the rest rooms are really nice, clean, well furbished and modern (not so big, but good for any kind of vacation). Restaurant is also amazing. Antonio and Rosario (thanks for all the good time) are really the kind... More

We stayed at the Hotel Olimpico for a few days using it as a base to explore the area. Great location with easy access to Salerno, the Amalfi coast and Paestum.The staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel has a perfect pool area and you just walk across the road to gain access to their private beach.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Olimpico and were very impressed with the friendly service from reception to the restaurant. He was quite ill at the time and the concern from the young lady at the reception desk was very much appreciated. The rooms were tastefully decorated and were very comfortable. The bathrooms had large showers and... More

Our stay was out of season in January 2015. It's a great hotel with fantastic, friendly and very helpful staff. The room was very clean, lovely and just about the right size with all mod cons including free WiFi, TV and a very simplistic safe system embedded in the fixed wardrobe. Even the balcony was very big. Breakfast was included... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location on the coast. The staff is most courteous and helpful.... We enjoyed our stay very much. The free shuttle to Salerno is a bonus! Breakfast is free and excellent. Dinner is a good value, especially the hot buffet with salad as well.

Olimpico was a good hotel to have a couple of days rest at in the middle of 4 weeks travelling around Italy and Greece. Staff were good, food at the restaurant was excellent and lying around the pool very relaxing. Location, however, is a bit weird. Pontecagnano beach area felt like an abandoned ghost town. There is a shuttle into... More
