John communicated with the staff extensively prior to arrival in order to ensure our honeymoon stay would be absolutely fabulous. They were extremely helpful in setting up a surprise floral arrangement, fruit and champagne delivery, as well as special turn-down service in our suite with a private balcony. Upon arrival, I (Alicia) received the roses, while the fruit and champagne... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice on business trips during the winter. Even though it was really quiet and most of the facilities were closed, I found the staff consistently friendly and helpful. The restaurant is not open for dinner out of season, but the one across the road had an adequate menu at a good price. The beach... More

We just returned from our first trip to Italy and had begun our journey at hotel Olimpico. We enjoyed our stay there and were extremely impressed with all of their staff.

We stayed at the Olimpico in May 2009 and returned this October for a much needed break. I'm a very demanding customer but I can't speak highly enough about this hotel. The staff are excellent, always friendly and helpful, and all the front of house and waiting staff speak English. They're clearly a team who've worked together for a while... More

As a couple on a road trip, this was sufficient enough of a place for us to stay at. We were headed back to Rome from Sicily and chose to stay here since we knew we would not leave the island until at least noon. It would be a long drive. We really needed a place to just rest, grab... More

Dear Guest We apologise that we did not leave a good impression on you. The fact you stayed only one night may be part of the reason we were unable to leave our typical impression on you.

We found this hotel after leaving terrible prepaid accommodation elsewhere - a breath of fresh air. Staff were very accommodating. The transfer service.to the ferry/town in Salerno was invaluable - you either need a car to get around or should rely on this transfer service..

Unfortunately we have no real positive remarks about this hotel and I do not understand how this is classed as a Salerno hotel as it is 15-18 klms away from the centre of Salerno. When we arrived we were only advised about facilities within the hotel, no details of places to visit or how to get there. Our first room... More
