“A view you will never forget!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The views from this hotel are spectacular. This is a very contemporary five star hotel with an excellent staff led by a very caring Director, Fulvia Clapier. The hospitality is genuine. The rooms are spacious; the infinity pool is incredible perched on the side of a mountain. Dining for breakfast is a great way to start the day, but, even more magical in the evening. The staff is knowledgeable of everything possible to do on the coast, and can arrange semi private tours of the area including Pompeii. You will not want to leave one of the most beautiful places on earth.

We spent one night at this hotel. It was faboullous! If you are in Amalfi, stay there.
It is a magic place, the staff is very frienly. And if you arrive by car there is a possibilty of parking your car. The view, the swimming pool, the breakfast, the rooms,... Great!

My wife & I booked the Convento for 5 nights to celebrate a significant Wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed! We were greeted with great hospitality and genuine warmth. We were upgraded without asking and champagne on ice was waiting!
Our room was spacious with a great view and private balcony. Just like the pictures the Convento is smart and slick, but the staff make everything very personal, and we were looked after with real warmth. The food was excellent and service wonderful. Many pictures around the hotel capture the history of the monastery, adding to the atmosphere. This is a great base for exploring the Amalfi coast and the Hotel team are very helpful and knowledgeable in regard to places to visit.

This place is magical, if you are planning to go to Amalfi, please stay here at least for one night. I don't think my experience of Amalfi would be so good if we stayed somewhere else.

And make sure you go to Ravello.

The only issue was breakfast, it was average for such a magical place. I was expecting more of Italian local food.

We stayed here for honeymoon for a week on 6th May 2013. The hotel was a great location just 5 - 10 minutes walk into Amalfi down some steps. Our bedroom had a great view but for a 5 star hotel very small with limited storage space. Poor quality of towels in bedrooms for a 5 star hotel - one was so thin it ripped!!! Expect better quality from this hotel for the price. Our confirmation promised fruit and champagne on arrival - received the champagne but no fruit!! Fabulous views on terrace for breakfast; the pool opening time of 10 am was far too late for us who are early risers wanting to make the most of our time! I can imagine in the height of the season it would be very crowded around this area. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant for dinner preferring to walk into Amalfi for the atmosphere and choice of restaurants. We would return again for the location, staff were very pleasant, a unique quirky hotel in terms of converted monastery but not 5 star

Room Tip: If a special occasion would need to book a suite - ours was a de lux and we were not hugely impresse...

I feel that I have seen some fabulous places in my day, but this may just be the most magical place I've ever visited. It's hard to explain - the natural beauty of the Amalfi coast is stunning - but in addition, the juxtaposition of this diamond onto the setting is perfect. The atmosphere is unbeatable - contemporary and cool and friendly with no trace of pretension.

The view from our room was THE MOST ROMANTIC view I've ever seen - full yellow moon hanging brilliantly over the boats bobbing in the Mediterranean and pastel colored buildings hugging walls along the cliff they shared with the hotel. I could have stood there gazing forever. The room itself was comfortable and spectacular - the bed incredible - the bathroom generously sized. We spent each of our 3 nights there having at least one drink in the cute little bar. Dinner was great the one night we ate at the restaurant.

A convenient trip down the stairs to the area below provides an easy way to access the town and restaurants along the ocean. Staff was fantastic and friendly. Drinks prepared very well and the service absolutely top notch.

I cannot wait to go back. I really want to go again right now!!!!

Room Tip: They all seemed to have a great view. We stayed on the floor with the restaurant and bar and loved...

We were blown away by super-chic Grand Hotel Il Convento. This real-life 13th century monastery had been an important fixture in the history of Amalfi for hundreds of years and then run as a grand hotel for more than a century, until new owners and management came in and gave this historic site a bottom-to-top 21st century makeover. Now, the white-washed walls of the historic building are complimented by all-white furnishings and flax-colored linen accents, from the street level entry all the way up to the top floor dining room and right through to the cliff-hugging guest rooms. The hotel looks like it could walk down a Milan runway and certainly could serve as the backdrop for any fashion shoot!

How many hotels boast their own cloister, vine-clad arbor and functioning church? Add in the spectacular cliffside views of Amalfi from every angle and you’ll be hard pressed to want to leave.

We had a very interesting suite, consisting of three rooms (probably each originally a monk’s cell) on three levels, each separated by only a couple of steps – a living room, a bedroom and a killer bathroom with a huge white ceramic free-standing bathtub and a gigantic walk-in shower with a window looking out to the sea. As noted, the white-and-flax color scheme continued in the guest rooms. Rather than looking bland or austere, it was really quite hip – SoBe meets Amalfi.

The staff of the hotel could not be nicer or more helpful, with excellent dinner and touring suggestions. They even gave us a private tour of the hotel church (which is kept locked for preservation purposes). The hotel offers a shuttle into town on the hour, but we quickly realized that we could walk into town on the main road (not recommended according to the doorman because of traffic) or down a flight of public stairs from street level to the marina and then a mere three blocks to the center of town. The stairs were not difficult at all (in either direction) and became our preferred way to have the freedom to come and go as we pleased without having to rely on the shuttle. But for those not so inclined, it is nice that the service is offered.

But there were also some glitches, especially the Internet. There seems to be a regional problem with the speed of the Internet because of interference from the mountains that surround the Amalfi Coast. But the hotel also requires going to the front desk to get new codes and signing back in every 24 hours and if you’re in the middle of work (as I was one day) when that 24-hour mark is reached, you are thrown out, you of course lose all your work and, in my case, a very important Skype call was dropped. That issue is separate from whether the Internet is slow and the hotel really needs to improve this part of its Internet service. Additionally, on the last morning, for some reason, the hotel (or at least the guest rooms) had no hot water. We thought the front desk’s reaction to the inconvenience was just a bit indifferent, which stood in stark contrast to the attentiveness to everything else. When one is paying over 700 Euros a night, something needs to be done when you can't shave, shower or wash. I'd also note that the spa treatments were not particularly good, with a massage that I could not wait to end.

Notwithstanding those issues, in the big picture, this hotel is fantastic. We are glad that the “great” hotels in Positano were booked because otherwise we would not have had a chance to stay at this “back-up” hotel. It will never be just a “back up” again!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are sea-view but it is essential and worth the already high prices to pay extr...
