“Wonderful views of the Mediterranean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful romantic time. The room was very nice with a large terrace overlooking the Mediterranean and the Amalfi coast. We arrived by car and appreciated the free parking available which would have been virtually impossible in Amalfi town. Heading to Amalfi either by foot or bus is easy. After our initial shock driving the coastal road we decided to drive the entire length towards Sorrento passing Positano and return via Salerno and Amalfi. Hundreds of fantastic photo opportunities which could not be possible unless one stayed several days. The restaurant at the B&B served excellent food and we had no need to search for restaurants. Great place to stay. We can definitely recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: A room with sea view is a must

We spent two nights here and found the rooms clean and comfortable. Slept very well and enjoyed the breakfast provided from the terrace. Was definitely nice sipping coffee and looking out over the Mediterranean Sea. They offered to drive us to town and explained how to use the SITA bus to get back to the B&B....it worked beautifully. Most enjoyable stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We stayed at Pesce d'Oro for one night and were very pleased with our room. It was comfortable, clean, and included a terrace that looked off into the Mediterranean. The hotel had free WiFi and the staff was very accommodating of us, especially when our plans changed at the last minute. The one thing to be aware of is that this hotel is about 3 km away from Amalfi proper, and the roads do not have sidewalks or really any kind of walking path, which makes getting to Amalfi by foot a little dangerous. However the staff was so helpful and happily chauffeured us whenever we needed, so it wasn't a problem. Just be aware that you'll probably need to depend on the hotel for getting around a bit.

The breakfast was delicious and the views couldn't be beat. I travelled with two of my girlfriends, however Amalfi just oozes romance, and I am sure this would be a great destination with a spouse.

We had an incredible time here. Loved the location! It's close enough for non-lazy people to walk to Amalfi, yet far enough to get away from the crowds. There's a bus stop across the street, too, and the staff will give you a ride to Amalfi if you ask, so you never need to use a car. People! You miss far too much using a car! One of the best experiences we had was climbing up a stairway to St. Michael's church high above the B&B and drinking lemoncello with the priest there, then we made our way to Amalfi over the course of three hours, stopping many times along the way at a fish market, a cafe, a cemetery, and just to take in the views. This is the way to travel, and Pesce d'Oro is the perfect place to stay for that! The food was excellent, the staff treated us well, and the rooms had lovely views of the sea. Nothing like sipping cappuccinos while staring out at the Med in the morning. We will definitely be back.

The signs indicate Al Pesce d'Oro is about 2kms from Amalfi township but it's more like 4km. We grabbed the bus heading for Sorrento and asked the driver to let us off here where we were put in a room with a splendid ocean view. It's a quirky hotel where it's a struggle to find someone who understands what you are trying to convey in English (a little bit like an Italian Faulty Towers), but the staff are friendly and do their best. For a three-star hotel, it is good value for money and the location is lovely. Try not to miss the last 9pm bus going up to the hotel as it's mad walking back from the town on the windy coast road, hugging the cliff everytime a car comes flying around the corner (about a 45 minute walk)!
Breakfast may be challenge for some as every morning we were given only sweet things on a plate, which included a sweet croissant, fruit and a piece of cake or pastry. Sometimes we got fresh bread to go with our selection of jams but other times just dry, crunchy toast in a packet. However, we did get an amazing freshly-squeezed orange juice and a good cappuccino each morning.
The room we stayed in was perfectly clean, if on the small side (one of our suitcases was squeezed into the wardrobe while another was on the floor), but the bed was comfortable and we had no problem sleeping.
The hotel has a good restaurant with an extensive menu and there is another lovely restaurant across the road.
All in all, when you get a good deal price-wise you have to consider that things will not be perfect. If you want perfect, stay in a five-star hotel.

Dull reception, but the room with furnished balcony (internet ordered) was splendid as expected. The view overlooking the sea was breathtaking! Dogs were welcomed without extra fees and, the free parking lot was absolutely a plus in this area.

Warning!
Even though the restaurant was good with a large a la carte menu card, they don't itemize the bill on payment. Actually, we didn't get a bill at all - just the amount. We paid 70 euros for two maincourses and a salad, wine and water, a rather high price compared to our expecteations. Our restaurant-bill was paid separately.

The room rate included a large breakfast-buffet according to the description on the internet, but surprisingly there wasn't any the next morning. Instead were offered a traditional Italian breakfast, which we always try to avoid (too much sugar). We paid for the room with our credit card and didn't discover until we were back home that the hotel had charged 100 euros more than the actual booking-price (85 euros).
