I'll start by saying this hotel because of its very nature was not our first choice as we are a mature couple. More a property for families.The hotel is in need of renovation and is very large and rambling However the position on the clear blue water was beautiful and the pool lovely. San Marco has very few restaurants though... More

This is a great hotel in a beautiful location. My room was clean and comfortable. The spa is amazing well worth a visit even if you are not staying at the hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the variety of food at breakfast is good and the half board menu changed every day and every meal... More

We travelled with Travelsphere at the beginning of June 2014 and enjoyed a one week escorted holiday on the Cilento coast, which is an area of Italy we had not visited before. Hotel staff: I contacted the hotel myself via email prior to travel (I wanted to confirm that the pool was open and obtain details of local buses) and... More

I can't speak highly enough of this hotel. My room was clean, airy and comfortable, with a wonderful view. Despite the rooms either side being occupied, and the room being close to the stairs, I wasn't disturbed by noise (save for the sound of the sea). The food was wonderful, with no Euro cuisine at all. The staff were friendly... More

Went on the Travelsphere Cilento Coast tour 23rd to 30th September. Weather was cool in the evenings and early mornings but loveley and hot during the days. Two superb tours to the archealogical sites. Salerno trip was OK, wouldn't bother to go again. The first day tour up to Castellabate Alto and Santa Maria were also interesting. Tour guide Gian...

After reading all the fab reviews about this hotel, what a disappointment it turned out to be. The food was pretty dire to say the least, the pool bar was a joke, and as for the staff, you were lucky to get any of them to understand what was being said. How can a hotel not even have an ice... More

Beautiful location, fabulous situation. Basic clean rooms, but omg the noise. Music nearly all day long on the terrace blaring out. Same tape every day. Also they have a theatre beneath the hotel which is a hoot, but there is a show every night from 10pm-midnight..so if your room is near there you will have loud music day and night.... More

What a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location! We recently held our wedding at L’Approdo. Our wedding planners at Slow Dreams took care of all the arraignments from beginning to end and we were a little apprehensive that the pictures would not be a true representation of the current state of the hotel. Our expectations were greatly exceeded! Not only... More

I want to echo all the lovely reviews about this hotel. I was part of an organised package and was very much surprised by the quality of this place. It is in a small quiet village, so not a place for night-clubbers, which is a relief. Rooms are spacious and airy with a view over the fishing harbour where you... More

This hotel is in a quiet but fab location, right onto the sea, with its own private beach with lots of sun loungers & you can swim in crystal clear sea.
