We spent 3 days at Villa Maria Luigia with a group of Italian friends and was our first time on the Costiera.
I have to say the location is perfect; just 1 km from Amalfi, with stunning sea views, a private garage for the cars and direct access to the beach through an elevator. The price per value of the vacation was excellent even though garage, elevator to the beach and beach space are services that have to be booked in advance and payed separately.
We did not book the garage, nor the elevator to the beach, nor the beach space because we had no clue of what our plans for the weekend were going to be and no idea of how crowded the beaches get on weekends, therefore once we realized that without these services it would have been a nightmare we asked the manager to book them for us on daily basis. Now here came the problem because the B&B does not have reserved slots for the elevator nor for the beach therefore even though the efforts of the management were incredible we did not manage to get to the beach on sunday; friday and saturday were fine.
It was our sole responsibility to book in advance and I do not feel that the hotel had any fault in how they took care of us and partially solved the issue but I suggest to all customers to get a booking for the elevator and the beach (not expensive at all) and if coming with the car you'd better book the garage as well.
If a suggestment to the management of the hotel can be given I would have preferred a higher price of the beach service but certainty of getting there. We spent only 15€ per person for the elevator and beach umbrella ecc when we would have easily payed twice as much but with the certainty of having a place on sunday as well.
