The Kings Residence was in its day I imagine an extremely luxurious hotel. It is still luxurious today though some of the gloss has worn off. The rooms are rather dated but everything is well kept and works, though the electrics are of a typical mediterranean standard ie a bit lethal!
A warning: Allow 3 hours for the transfer from Naples airport. However I see this as a positive as the views are absolutely breath taking apart from the hair raising crazed drive through Salerno.
The food is OK, there are nice restaurants in Palinuro so you can always go there. Breakfast is fine. General service is exceptional though drinks can be expensive. The pizzas at lunch time are good as is the little beach where they shuttle you back by boat after lunch.
A must see is Paestum (I think you can get there by train also) with its 3 almost complete greek temples along with other greek and roman remains.
Met a nice couple called Angela and John (tried to email but not sure you got it) .Passed some lovely hours round the pool with them.
All in all a great holiday for what we wanted (ie to relax)
