I have spent a couple of nights in this hotel with my fiancée before going to Paestum and we really loved it! The staff is so nice and the rooms were extremely clean. We loved the view from our room in the first floor: unbelievable!!! One of the best sunsets we’ve ever seen at the restaurant terrace (ps the food was so good just like any other Italian restaurant). Genuinely would love to go back to Palinuro and would definitely go back to this hotel
I am from Germany and I'm touring south of italy with my girlfriend and when we arrived at Palinuro we stayed at Baia Hotel for the weekend and while i was staying there the staff were really amazing, they can speak a lot of languages and treated us with a smile on their face. Everything we had there was nice the food was amazing, the swimming pool was great because u could see the sea from there and it was a spectacular view and the rooms were spacious and comfortable so for me this is one of the nicest place i have been to and the price was also reasnable.
Probably one of my best Italian holiday experiences. Apart from the surrounding natural beauty with transparent waters and stunning cliffs, the hotel was a wonderful experience from start to finish. They welcomed us warmly, even in English and were very accommodating. I'd highly recommend the hotel restaurant which I don't usually do. The cook even came to our table to check we enjoyed the delicious seafood that was served. To top it off, the outside pool really helped cap a perfect day by relaxing until the sunset. Perfect.
I stayed in the Hotel Baia for one night on the 16th Aug 2010, and it has to be the worst experience I have ever had with hotel staff. On arrival, we were told by an extremely rude frontline receptionist that the room wasn't ready and to wait 15 minutes. After 25 minutes, we were still waiting. After finally getting the keys, we arrived upstairs to the smell of bleach and dirty towels, which were immediately returned, and also asked to speak to a manager. After being told the manager had more 'important things to do', we were then called 15 minutes later, and then told by the manager to '**** off' and that we were 'lucky to find somewhere in August at short notice' . After paying 180 Euros for one night in a room that stunk so heavily of bleach it made your eyes water, I can't really consider that as lucky. The room was standard, not 4 star, the bed was uncomfortable, the room was full of mosquitoes. It has to be the worst experience I have ever had when staying a hotel. Would like to hope that this behavior isn't normal, but I word to the wise, if you're from the UK, and understand a real 4 star hotel, then please ask to check the room before you book, as it can only be compared to a 2 star in the UK, especially if you end up paying around 180 a night for the 'pleasure'. The location is good, however, so is the location of the other hotels.…
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this hotel. Palinuro is a fantastic place to stay and if youy are going there stay at the Baia. Genuine Italian experience with real food, tastefully decorated, spacious room, fantastic view.
