Spent a night here and loved the ocean view from the hotel. The room was quite spacious with two single beds and plenty of room for two luggage to spread out. The room although not fancy looks clean with Mediterranean style tiled floor. Amenities are specially made for the hotel and consists of shower caps, shower gel, shampoo and soap.... More

Top Hotel. Excellent restaurant. Rooms in style of the region. Only hotel of the region with own beach. Rooms are clean. View is breathtaking. Breakfast is a 7 out of 10. Parking is free. Internet is a little slow. Food at the beach is good but all cold - no warm dishes. Worth coming here. We have been there 3... More

Hotel was very basic, internet was horrible but the view was beautiful. We had a lovely terrace that looked over the water but it was blocked by a large tree. Breakfast was nice each morning. There wasn't a shower curtain which was odd. The hotel was nothing special (except the view) but not awful.

The hotel overlooks the sea, fantastic view. Our room was clean and had a large balcony. There are steps to the beach. The hotel has a very nice outdoor area. Breakfast is included and is very tasty, Free Wifi, and free car parking. There is a lift from the car park.

The sea views from this hotel are excellent, as was the food in the restaurant, though I don't know if I would recommend the beach. The hotel seems to be on a north facing cove which loses the sun very quickly - by 3pm the beach available to guests was entirely in shade and there was no other uncovered area... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review, it is great to read such positive comments regarding the view and our restaurant. I am however sorry that you didn't enjoy our private beach; unfortunately in October the cove loses the sun very early compared to summer season. I also apologise if your breakfast experience was not up to your standards, we... More

We love Italy and wanted to go somewhere in Italy in September where we could chill out, lounge around, enjoy the beach on a rare break without our kids. This didn't disappoint at all. Parking We were really worried about where we would park as we have heard horror stories of driving and parking in Italy, but on finding the... More

I stayed here with a group on a trip to Italy - Rome and Amalfi Coast. I absolutely loved this hotel. The view is absolutely breathtaking. All rooms have water view and every morning the sun over the water was beautiful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The tile floors were lovely. The beach was great. The restaurant had...

Breathtaking location, wonderful sea-view room, private beach, all-round smiling and professional staff, romantic restaurant overlooking the sea..should I go on? :) Every morning started with breakfast in the room because it was an experience in itself to sit on the small, quaint balcony, overlooking the sea and enjoy the continental breakfast. And the continental breakfast was no joke - I... More

I spent 4 days in this Hotel and everything was very good. Breakfast offers a lot of choices, organic, fresh... The rooms are very clean and with all the comforts.

My wife and I had 4 nights here end July 2015. The room overlooking the balcony was bliss, as was the private beach. Whilst the setting at the restaurant overlooking the sea/coastline of Amalfi was perfect, the food was expensive and of mediocre quality. There was also some noise in our room from the restaurant above with moving chairs and... More
