Situated away from Amalfi, close to Conca dei Marini, and this is, in my opinion, it's main advantage. Complete rest and relaxation away from the tourist crowds and noise of the city. And if there is a mood to have a walk and have a dinner in Amalfi, the hotel provides a free transfer to Amalfi and in return way... More

We weren't sure what to expect given the mixed reviews but we were delightfully surprised! This hotel is an impressive fortress in the cliffs outside of Amalfi. The grounds are amazing and the private beach and amenities were wonderful. Our standard room was large and the bathroom was huge and updated. The bedroom was simply furnished in keeping with theme... More

My cousins and I stayed at the Saraceno in early May. Unfortunately, it was too cold to use their wonderful looking beach and pool but we enjoyed the grounds of the hotel. The rooms were large and clean, the terrace bar was nice, the shuttle service into town was good. The only minor criticism I have of the hotel is... More

Amazing hotel. Like staying in an old fortress. Amazing location excellent staff and great value. I can say that this is the most interesting hotel I've ever been to. There are no spa or room service (don't use them anyway) but the place and the excellent maintenance make the difference.

We stayed an extra night in Amalfi and chose this hotel based on the pics and reviews. It was not what we expected and in fact was a HUGE disappointment. The place looked like it was about to go out of business. The pool was closed, there were no guests, the bedding and decor were old. If in fact it... More

This hotel rest on the side of and seems to be built in to a cliff going down to the beach on the Amalfi coast.

My fiancé and I booked this hotel for our 3 day trip to the Amalfi coast. First, the views are unreal - can't ask for more. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was a decent breakfast included. The room was decent and clean (seemingly) with nice bathrooms. However, both my fiancé and I experienced bites. We're not exactly... More
