My husband and I had been dreaming of returning to Hotel Santa Caterina since our first visit in 2008 and our expectations were surpassed at our recent 5 day vacation there. It is a truly magical place and the attention to detail that the family/owner/manager demonstrates is phenomnal. The dramatic windowed elevator down the cliff to the pool is a wonderful start to the day, followed by lunch a the Risorante del Mare and dinner on the terrace. The setting is gorgeous, the rooms are truly unique and lovely and the staff makes everyone feel like a VIP. We will definitely go back!
