On arrival at this most incredible ancient arab fortress, we were received with such a warm welcome from Raymondo & Guiseppe. Although ancient, this incredible building has all the modern amenities one has come to expect with a modern luxury hotel whilst still maintaining it's original charm of an era gone by. The spectacular panoramic views of the Amalfi coast... More

The Saraceno Hotel is the place to be visiting the Amalfi coast. The people are very friendly, and helpful. Food is fabulous and the drinks are great. Shuttle into town and easy access to tours and restaurants and shopping. Take a boat trip to Cabri and go to the Blue grotto and the green grotto.

At first from the road the Saraceno does not look very impressive however that is because like most of the properties built along the Amalfi coast the main portion of the hotel is below the entrance & into the rock face. To really appreciate the building you have to look at it either from sea level or even better from... More

When our original reservation didn't work out at another hotel, we stopped here randomly, just hoping it would be decent enough to stay one night. When we checked in, got to our room and explored the grounds, we decided we were staying another 2 nights! The views from our room were breathtaking, the entire place has so much character and...

Don't be fooled by the negative reviews. We booked this hotel through Hotwire and were initially freaked out when we learned where we were staying...but boy was this terrific. Of the 5 hotels we stayed at during our honeymoon, this was in the top 2 (the other was in Positano, and cost over twice as much). Rooms are spacious, clean,... More

Poor breakfast, no fruits , lack of tasty food, low quality of accessories in the rooms, plastic all over you look, plastic hangers, plastic garbage can, unfriendly employees. Very high rate versus the quality of the service! I definitely not recommend this hotel !

We came to the Saraceno from a boring corporate hotel in Sorrento so the contrast was amazing! Not only were we greeted as if we were the only guests but we were shown to our room personally by the receptionist and, having booked a junior suite, our mouths opened as we walked into it! Not just a circular bed (which... More

We are lucky enough to stay in 4 or 5* hotels, coming to Italy for the first time, our expectations were high! The location is stunning but we feel the hotel is resting on its 5* rating for every thing else. The beach staff were abrupt, instructed us to sit where they suggested rather than where we wanted! The food... More

We really enjoyed our three day stay and wished it could have been longer. The setting is wonderful and it has a good beach which is rare round Amalfi. The place is a little quirky but in a very good way and the room we had, 202 or Pasha was a junior suite with big circular bed and a jacuzzi... More
