“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

This hotel was well worth our money ! ! ! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very clean (simple but ideal) and the location was perfectly romantic. We had a beautiful view from our room, overlooking the water and at night the moonlight was breath taking. Some guests have complained about the travel uphill to get to the hotel (15 minutes roughly), but at night it makes for a gorgeous walk ! ! ! And if you don't have the energy to walk up the hill, you can catch a bus ride outside the hotel that will take you into the main sqaure. Buses come regularly and the hotel has the times posted by the fron desk. You can walk down to the tiny/gorgeous beach in minutes (take the well hidden staircase down to sea level, don't pay for the fairy that you catch from the main square.) Get to the beach early - it gets packed early. You can have breakfast on the terrace and enjoy the view. Absoluetly romantic and beautiful !

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for the room with a balcony, worth it !

My wife and I carefully selected this place to celebrate our 20th anniversary. With a balcony on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, it could not have been more romantic. The room was very quaintly appointed and spotless. Valentina and Rafaella couldn't have been nicer to us. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed at the hotel in September 2011. The staff is excellent - very polite and helpful - you are treated like a king). You, in fact, feel like you are staying at your own private villa. It is quiet, relatively small and cozy. Though our room was not facing the sea, it was still a great experience - clean, nice and exactly what we needed. The only downside is the breakfast, which, if they improved it and threw in some fruit and cold cuts (which they could easily do), would make for a 5+ experience.
A very nice beach is right under the hotel. However, the hotel is on the large rock (like everything in this part of Italy). So you have to go down some 600 (or 500 steps) - if you want to climb up - beware, we are relatively young and in good shape, but we had to stop 3 times to catch our breath (and we would not recommend doing it more than once a day). Your option is to use the services of a nearby hotel, which allows you to use their elevator up and down unlimited number of times for 15 euro a day per person. You can have lunch at the beach, too. And get sunbeds with umbrellas for 15 euro a day per 2 people.
There's a boat stopping by the beach every half hour - you can go to Amalfi for 2 euro instead of climbing up the stairs.
In terms of walking to Amalfi by foot from the hotel. I was really surprised to read that it is a 15 or even 10 minute walk. Again, we are in good shape, but it is a good 20-25 minute walk - and you can't have dinner in the vicinity of Villa Maria Luigia - you'll have to look for another hotel or go down to Amalfi.
Taking a public bus, which stops every hour or so, from the hotel to Amalfi is an option, but it is about 2 euro per person per trip, which adds up.
Again, if you have arrived to Amalfi by bus - and you have heavy bags - I recommend taking a cab to the hotel (15 euro), ditto - when you leave the hotel.
Having said that, it was an excellent experience due to a wonderful beach, excellent and friendly service and nice rooms.

Room Tip: If you are mobility impaired or not fit - look for a closer hotel to Amalfi.

Loved this little hotel, the staff were so helpful and friendly.The hotel was really clean with good sized rooms and a nice sized bathroom. The views were fantastic and i would have expected to pay more than they were charging, they also had their own secure parking.Loved this little place.

We were desperate to find accommodation for one night in Amalfi, as everything was booked up. We find the Villa through the internet. Prices were reasonable for the Amalfi coast. After we had a confirmation of the price, we saw on the internet that there was an offer for the night we stayed in, and they lowered the fee as per their website info. It was clean, lovely view to the coast, breakfast was the best we had in this trip to Italy, staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay

Room Tip: ask for view to the coast rooms

This bed in breakfast is truly a hidden gem in the Amalfi Coast. The view from their balconies over the water is breathtaking! It is pristinely clean and beautiful tile throughout. The staff of Raffella, Valentina and Alfonso were so friendly and helpful. It is very reasonably priced and well exceeds in value. I highly recommend this B & B.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the water. You will be amazed by the view everyday!
