Castellabate is beautiful and the hotel is close to town and right on the beach. We got a great last minute price and the room was large and clean with a great view. Beware of the showers, it went from scalding hot to very cold every 30 seconds and didn't drain. Not a deal breaker, just annoying. The breakfast wasn't... More

I've already reviewed this once anyway, but since we go every year another review is in order - especially as the beach bar is now set up differently - but with just as much charm and delicious food and helpful staff. And the beach now has beds as well as deckchairs allocated to everyone. We were back in July again,... More

The Hotel is 7-10 minutes walk away from Santa Maria di Castellabate. It is housed in a monster building, that has nothing to do with the beautiful surroundings. Although the building is huge, my room was the smallest I have ever seen (and I have visited too many hotels). There was hardly any space to move next to my semi-double... More

I arrived at the hotel at around 12pm and the very nice Massimo on the front desk let me check in then rather than later (i thought i'd have to wait until 2pm!) took me to my room and I settled in straight away! Fantastic sea view! Big bed, clean bathroom, air-con, TV, mini bar - everything you need! I... More

My partner and I began travelling to this hotel when it was indeed the concrete block described in one of the (presumably quite old) reviews. Regardless of whatever shortcomings the building had in the old days - we loved it so much we have returned every year since 2001 - when we were able to. In fact twice a year,... More

The "Grand" hotel is a 1970's concrete block perched brutishly above the beach at Santa Maria. It is completely out of place among the low rise traditional village buildings, and dominates its neighbours. It looks as though the owners have tried to go up another floor, but building work has stopped, suggesting either that money has run out, or that... More

What can I say..? The best in the region, amazing staff and food, really great place with the private beach with extremely friendly staff and attention to every little detail. Will DEFINITELY go back and recommend to friends, already booked for next year. If you are looking for a quality time, you should book your place here!

Not really sure what the lady (Nina) is talking about, I had a great time. It was my brother's wedding, the staff was very helpful in organising a wonderful time for all our family. The staff was quite fluent in German, English and Spanish, in fact most of our guests were foreigners and had no problems whatsoever comunicating. The food... More

Horrible Honeymoon! We booked a beautiful doubleroom with sea view for our honeymoon - we got one of the worst rooms with view on the parking place and the view to the sea was affected by trees. Of course we complained at the reception, they told us that they are fully booked , so we had to stay in these... More
