Have just returned from a week's stay at the Excelsior Grand Hotel in Amalfi and really loved it! We had booked a superior double room, but due to us arriving late, nearly 11pm, after a very long drive all the rooms in that category had been assigned, so a very welcoming concierge gave us a free upgrade to a large...

We arrived very late after a manic drive from Naples to Amalfi and were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful member of staff. Our room was large and spacious with an equally large bathroom. The bed was firm, but not uncomfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. Next morning when we opened our shutters, all I can... More

Just returned after a 2 week holiday. I had read some of the reviews before the holiday and went with an open mind. The views from the hotel are amazing, in a fantastic location. Close enough to walk to the small village of Pogerola, where you can mingle with locals who are very friendly and use the shuttle bus or... More

Just returned from a long stay here and had an excellent time! Reading the previous reviews I can not disagree enough with some of the negative comments about the staff and the food. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the head waiter, and the food was absolutely delicious! The views from the hotels were stunning and it... More

After reading all the reviews on this hotel: some good; some not too good, I came with an open mind. That said, I found the view from the hotel wonderful and that was about it. Absolutely dreadful staff.... no customer service skills whatsoever. Very aggressive if you merely mention the slightest thing. They were absolutely awful. Pool area totally crammed...inches... More

Stayed at the Excelsior for a great week's holiday. Antonio the head waiter was very pleasant and great for knowledge of the area. Food was excellent, swimming pool was deep and a good size for a swim. Hotel is at the top of the hill so access is via free hotel bus that runs every 45 mins or you can... More

If you want the best views in Amalfi, this is the place to go. Yes it is a bit dated in places but overall this helped to create a good atmosphere. There are plenty of areas to enjoy the view, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I have notices plenty of positive comments about Antonio the Maitre Di... More

This hotel was lovely I believe it is one of the highest in Amalfi, the room was basic but nice and clean with the balcony doors opening out to the view of the Mediterranean. The pool area was lovely and the dinning room very spacious. I was dissapointed with the dinner. The breakfast was very ordinary the scramble eggs were... More

Perched high on the hill top, our first impression was amazement. The views are great from the restaurant, terraces, pool, etc. I liked the character of the hotel, with it's 70's-like furniture, it's bar, the beautiful tiles, etc. The pool was great, as it was very hot when we were there, and a swim was very refreshing! We were on... More

We stayed at this hotel and had a great time. The pool is gorgeous so we didn't even bother with the private beach. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful especially the waiting staff and bar staff under Antonio the Head Waiter who knows everyone's name! I don't agree with the negative reviews about the food either, we enjoyed all... More
