This is a huge disappointment for a 4 star hotel. I won't recommend it to anyone. It's not kept up, no central air conditioning, the staff not friendly, food is not good and lastly there are NO towels other than bath towels.

We stayed here for five nights and ate at the hotel restaurant once and the ocean restaurant once. Both were incredible. Order the steak!

Noticed a review hadn't been posted since 2012 and this place deserves a "two thumbs up!" Located literally "on the water" the view of Amalfi is amazing. All seating is located on the terrace so a view from every seat. Food was outstanding as well. Pasta for the First Course and "Catch of the Day" for the Second Course. Three... More

This restaurant is in a fantastic position in an old tower on the edge of the sea with excellent views of both Amalfi and Atrani. Unfortunately, both the service and the food were poor and certainly did not justify the high prices. The menu was uninspired and the food stodgy. A dish of prawns with cous-cous featured warm prawns on... More

Booked and had a specific room confirmed. Was given a different room and told it was an upgrade. Didn't agree-felt I was sharp practice.

This stunning hotel and restaurant is worth the visit! a short walk up the hill from Amalfi it offers some of the best views of this lovely town. The tower hosts the restaurant but also the tower suit which if you are looking for a romantic venue this is the place to book! A circular room with an impressive painted... More
