We stayed here for a one night stop on our way to Greece. We walked in off the road, with no pre booking having been made, and asked if they had any rooms. No problem said the very nicely spoken lady. We booked to have our evening meal here on the balcony. What a view. Our room was just super,... More

Great little hotel. Rooms are a little small, but the view makes up for that. Restaurant was very good. Don't expect to walk anywhere from here, although the town of Cetus is only about a mile away. Nice base to explore the Amalfi Coast.

The hotel was beautifully located and the accommodations were lovely, with a balcony overlooking the ocean- beautiful sunrises and sunsets! The staff was very friendly and helpful, though they did not speak English. One problem with this resort is that they advertise extensive Spa services and when we tried to book a massage, facial or even manicure, we were informed... More

This hotel has an excellent position to visit the Amalfitan Coast at an acceptable price and good quality of the service. The problems occurred during our stay were rapidly solved by the staff, who is extremely kind. Only some points to consider for improving service: - The breakfast was always the same, no variation. Lack of products from the area... More

Good hotel if you want to enjoy the beach, but not restful at all. Noise came from every possible source: - Very thin doors and poor noise insulation basically meant that people talking in the hallway might as well be in your room - Spring loaded doors were slamming shut until 2am and starting at 8am. - Cheesy music from...

In addition, we are sorry you did not appreciate our music, based on careful selection of jazz and lounge. Furthermore we’d like to apologize if our staff... More

My husband and I visited this hotel for 5 days last week. We were immediately impressed with the location and our beautiful room. We had an extended balcony that extended over the coast. Our room was always quiet and the maid gave us excellent service. The morning breakfast was so much better than what we had had in Rome at... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in late September, at the end of a lovely tour of the Amalfi Coast. Among my fondest memories of the trip is waking up here, in a beautiful whitewashed room to the sound of the Mediterranean lapping at the shore below. It's like being in a movie. The breakfast was by... More

I was honoured to be a guest at the Hotel Cetus whilst attending a business event, also hosted at the hotel. The hotel is in a spectacular cliffside location, my room had an amazing view right onto the sea. It is very picturesque at night. The communal areas of the hotel are kept spotlessly clean and tidy, and all the... More

Hotel Cetus was absolutely breathtaking, and I plan on returning in 2014. The rooms were beautiful along with the views! I had the time of my life in Italy. It was clean, quiet, the breakfast was delicious, they also have a great restaurant for dinner which overlooks the sea. The view from our room was gorgeous, and the hotel staff... More
