“Perfect Romantic Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The staff was amazing, the Bellini very fresh, the candles in the lounge lit very well and bartenders spectacular. The Romeo and Juliet Suite is a must. Pizza on the beach is great at lunch time.

Moreover, their sister property; Hotel Marina Riviera in Amalfi is a great option to mix your stay with another property

Room Tip: Get the Romeo and Juliet Suite.

My entire family (11 of us...including my 3 year old daughter) spent 10 days at Santa Caterina. It was the most memorable experience. The staff is INCREDIBLE. So attentive, so friendly, so polite...by the time we left, they felt like family to us. I was a little concerned being in such a nice hotel with a 3 year old, but they embraced her as if she were their own. The hotel itself is gorgeous. Each room is unique and tastefully decorated. Rooms are clean with maid service twice a day (bigger cleaning in the am, but towels are replaced at night with turn down service). The view is unbelievable, the pool is right next to the sea. Staff at the pool bring you cold water, olives, chips, cold wash clothes....it's truly an experience. We can't wait to go back. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are worth the extra money....

The hotel is magnificent, a most wonderful setting on the Amalfi Coast. The views are unsurpassed, the food excellent, and the entire staff were beyond helpful, genuine, kind, and always smiling from morning til evening. It made for a perfect holiday. We will definitely return to this heaven on earth!

We traveled in May to Italy and stayed in this lovely hotel. The setting is absolutely gorgeous perched cliff side above the Mediterranean. The staff was charming and friendly, particularly Simone Pepe, a concierge, who was very helpful with trip planning suggestions. Would definitely stay here again.

If you want to go first class and be treated well, this is the place to stay on the Amalfi coast. We even had a few issues with our room but all mechanical and all addressed immediately. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel itself and the rooms overall are very nice, but no nicer than a fine hotel in NYC or equivalent. What makes it actually worth (if that is actually possible) the $1200 a night is the incredibly accommodating staff (I have a number of pictures of them holding our 16 month old son). Genuinely sweet people that I would look forward to seeing again on a future trip. The Amalfi coast is not a great place for a child (especially under 2) yet they made every effort to make my family and others with small children welcome. Anything we needed, milk at all hours, crib, baby sitter, car service to Ravello, were handled promptly and professionally. The location a short (albeit treacherous) walk from town and the port was modestly inconvenient - they run a shuttle frequently but it involves being on their schedule and does not run in the evenings. Water access is fine but not remarkable - the pool, in a great location adjacent to the water, is average. Those who have not been to the coast might be disappointed that there is no beach - you jump off a dock into deep (cold) water. They have ladders that allow you to climb back up to the "dock".
Food is as expensive as you would expect, but excellent. Breakfast is included, which is nice. Drinks - will get you. My wife had a non-alcoholic drink by the pool that was $16. Some that should have been $5.
Overall a great place and experience, but you have to be back at your desk reflecting on the trip before you can truly say it is worth the price.

Room Tip: We were in room 70 - a hike from the main hotel, but with a balcony overlooking the water - honestly...
