(sorry this is so long)This hotel was gorgeous, we cannot say enough about our stay and experience, I could really go on and on. My husband and I were at the Amalfi coast in July, 2013 and spent only a couple of nights at this hotel, and we were very impressed. It was a ‘splurge’ for us, would have LOVED to have stayed at this location longer. The views are spectacular, honestly breathtaking, and beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a more comfortable and accommodating place. Let’s start with our first impression of this hotel; we were met in the lower lobby by a hotel staff who took us up to the 3rd floor where the main lobby/reception is located. All the while explaining to us the history of building, this was very interesting. Before we actually checked-in, he led us out to the veranda where we were met with a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade, we sat on beautiful and comfortable furniture overlooking the everlasting view of the coast, this view is stunning. We were in awe and felt so relaxed. He then let told us that we were upgraded to a suite type room; we were so thrilled and excited! We finished checking in and he brought us up to our suite, it was absolutely GORGEOUS! We could not get enough of the view; our 3 windows faced the water. We’ve stayed at beautiful hotels before, but this place was outstanding. When you come to it by water, like we did, it looks like it’s built right into the Cliffside. The bedding and everything in the room was well appointed, way beyond our expectations. It was so clean and neat. White linens on the king bed, ahhhhhh. The bathroom had a huge tube, a separate large glassed in shower and 2 large vanities. Plush robes and slippers. We thought we won the lottery. Onto the pool; to get to the pool, you walk down arbor lined path surrounded and overflowing with flowers and at the end is an infinity pool which overlooks the sea. Just another breathtaking view. Comfortable lounge chairs. We had dinner in their restaurant that evening, delicious. Of course looking out over the sea, which made it even more wonderful. Each morning we enjoyed the breakfast. The variety of fresh meats, veggies, fruits, breads was outstanding. Their lounge areas were gorgeous with large/tall windows with white curtains hung on them that billowed when the wind blew. Honest to God, this place was magnificent. This was like no other place we’ve ever stayed. Clean and the staff was courteous and you could tell they cared for their hotel. Very easy to get to the center of town for shopping, the beach, ferry’s, taxi’s, but yet not in the hustle and bustle of a downtown area. We loved our stay and want to go back. We highly and thoroughly recommend this hotel.
