We stayed at this hotel twice in 2014. The views over Amalfi are amazing. The staff are excellent. The food is really good and the view from the outside restaurant again amazing, however during both our stays we had one night in which the food wasn't as good. The swimming pool area was lovely and quiet during our stay but... More

Simly cool! Room- the view by the sea fantastic, plenty of space simple and clean. the hotel is located a bit high but make use of the Naveta to go to down.There`s an elevator that you can use to make it to the beach. Characteristic narrow streets of Amalfi make it a bit difficult to use your own car.In the... More

We stayed in this hotel for two weeks last July and absolutely loved it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves beautiful views and a touch of old fashioned elegance. It is located above Amalfi. We thought we would venture out at night but we loved the laid back evenings looking out to sea, sipping gin and tonic,... More

This Hotel is actually in Pogerola about 500 m above the town of Amalfi. We made full use of the pool, shuttle bus to town and many ferries to other nearby towns. We originally stayed at this hotel for three nights in 2011 and were so impressed we returned in 2013 for two weeks. Air Transat offers this as a... More

We arrived here for 2 nights as part of a bus tour and couldn't have been happier. Yes the hotel is dated, but it is like taking a delightful step back in time. Today it could be considered as retro. We were fortunate because we were given not just room but a fantastic suite on the top floor with the... More
