“Quiet location with excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We just had a week's holiday with Travelsphere at the Lapprodo and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We had a third floor room with balcony overlooking the delightful harbour. The hotel was in an extremely remote spot which would not suit everyone but the walks along the beach to neighbouring Santa Maria were an absolute joy. The meals were very Italian and always hot and delicious. The staff were attentive and made mealtimes a pleasure. The hotel has a private beach and lovely grounds and it was a real shame that the weather was not better during our stay. There was a continual strong wind from the sea but it did not spoil things and we will look forward to another visit when we might be able to enjoy the beach more.

Beautiful location on the Cilento Coast which is unspoilt & quiet, fabulous views of the marina, which needs to be seen at night & at dawn and you can take a 40 minute stroll along the beach to Santa Maria di Castellabate. The food was fabulous along with the pool & beach area for me this was the place where dreams actually do come true, bella.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor to get the great views

I have just spent a week at Hotel L'Approdo, travelling with Travelsphere and can't write highly enough about it. The rooms were very spacious and immaculately clean. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent with plenty of choice and the Maître D Gennaro was so helpful, always smiling and couldn't do enough for you. The whole atmosphere at the hotel was superb. My only criticism would be that the location is a bit remote but the grounds of the hotel were stunning. We had two rooms on the second floor - Nos. 219 and 220 and I would recommend them as the view from the balcony overlooked the swimming pool and the private beach and you could also see the harbour. Truly lovely and I can't speak highly enough about the wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool and beach are best

After reading the reviews we booked this holiday with Travelsphere and was not disappointed.

We loved this hotel and the quiet, unspoilt surrounding area with beautiful scenery and lovely coastal walks.

Even though we arrived late evening our evening meal was waiting for us. Check-in was quick and efficient. Reception staff were always polite and cheerful.

Our room was immaculately clean and spacious with amazing views over the little harbour, sea and up to the Castellabate on the hill.

Inz the restaurant, Gennaro and his team were professional and friendly. Any requests were quickly attended to, nothing was too much trouble.

There was plenty of choice at breakfast even a good, hot cup of tea!

Our evening meals were delicious, always hot and well presented.

Thank you to all the staff for making this a most memorable holiday.

I can only echo the wonderful comments of previous reviews. The hotel is great, the staff charming and the views breathtaking. The food is excellent quality and really authentically Italian. This is the real Italy, the village quiet and charming and the whole area an experience to be savoured. There are so many places I hope to travel in the coming years, but hope to return to this hotel at some time in the future as it was so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the small port are best, as the views across the bay to Santa Maria and uphill to...

I have just returned from another great stay here using Just You. The hotel and it's staff have if anything improved their previous high standard by changing to buffet service for evening meal. That has improved the speed of the service.

I love the hotel and also San Marco which is why I decided to stay again. Thank you so much to everyone at the hotel for giving me another great holiday!

We stayed here for 8 days in August 2013. We're a family of four with children (then) aged 9 and 7. On arriving we felt rather crestfallen. So many rules! We were told that the main swimming pool was out of bounds in the afternoon. No boat hire between 2 and 3pm (or similar). Wearing a wrist was compulsory on the hotel grounds... It didn't feel much like the summer holidays! It turned out far less oppressive than I feared, though. No one wore the bands. And there was another pool we could use at any time.
The big positives
The hotel's private beach was small but lovely. We spent most of our time there. The sea was fantastically clear. We bought masks and snorkelled around the beach every day. If you venture slightly further, to the harbour walls, there's even a wreck to explore. Some days we would see huge shoals of fish. It was wonderful!
Lunches in the hotel were fab. Officially lunch was pretty expensive. But they let us just pay for antipasti. Which was the most incredible choice of around -- I'm guessing -- one hundred different meats, cheeses, breaks and amazing salads. Quite something to behold.
San Marco was small but the cafes and restaurants were all very good. Far more choice in Castellabatte and San Maria (both lovely by the way). Everywhere was relatively uncommercial, pretty and unspoiled.
Overall it was a lovely holiday. A quirky hotel. But clean and with far more pluses than minuses. Overall a strong recommend.
