Excellent great value Hotel in beautiful grounds
Posted Jul 22, 2014
This hotel is excellent for those who want a quiet relaxing break in the Italian sun. It has beautiful grounds with the golf course and tennis courts surrounding the hotel. The Napoli football team use this hotel for their training grounds and you can often see them training on the 3 pitches in the middle of the golf course. A walk or run around the golf course is also quite nice. The only thing that lets the hotel down is the local area. Pinatamare is an old Italian holiday resort near the hotel, but due to the relocation of the Neapolitan people in the 1980's in the aftermath of the last earthquake the resort has fallen into disrepair. It is still very busy during August and if you look past the run down buildings you will find some hidden gems in terms of the food and the people. The best thing about the hotel is its easy access to Naples, hire a car and see the local area. There are plenty of local restaurants which are just out of this world. Ask the bar staff for recommendations and you will not go wrong. If you just stay in the hotel you will have a very quiet time but will be missing out on the joys of Neapolitan life. We have been before and will go again. Naples is a place of extremes, you must look past the bad to see the good as the good is extremely good.
