“One of the best hotels ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We travel a fair amount and are pretty picky. This hotel is one of the best ever. Beautiful hotel, great amenities, gorgeous views, lovely and comfortable rooms. Slept like a baby. Service is great and food is delicious. All this doesn't come cheaply but is well worth it for a special occasion when you want to be pampered.

Room Tip: We were in annex which is a bit of a walk but just lovely also. Balcony with incredible view a plus.

We spent our honeymoon there. Perfect is all I can say. Fabulous location, incredible service, fantastic food... going down the lift through the cliffs made me feel like being in a James Bond movie. There is nothing to fault in this heavenly place.

We understand why T&L rated this the #1 resort! Beautiful and amazing. We stayed here on an anniversary trip in May 2013 and wish we could return tomorrow. The view from our room was unbelievable as was the view from the pool and the restaurant. The service from the staff was wonderful. Everyone knew us by name and were always pleasant and accommodating.

On the edge of amalfi and the best hotel there.amalfi is beautiful but full of tat so being way from it all was great.plus great location from which easy to visit Capri positano and ravello.the staff were fabulous,friendly and always helpful.having stayed at villa deste on Como as well I am now educated that Italian hotels have their own style w,which could be described by some as outdated by current tastes but that is to miss the point.this hotel is the essence of an Italian stay stunning viewsandold world service in an immaculately clean hotel with a nice sea edge bea,ch area.I got the impression that the customers return year after year which I would given the chance.

I've stayed here back in May/June for part of my pre-wedding trip with my husband and friends. The hotel is extremely disappointing.

We stayed at the largest suite which was 1500USD a night. Totally not worth the money. We wouldn't mind paying for 1500 USD a night if the hotel provide a 5 stars experience and service. Some hotel staffs were nice but we've encountered a few that were very rude. Our suite was large and spacious, but extremely boring with no character. We did not feel cosy at all. Bathroom was decent size but jacuzzi looked old and dirty. I found hair in the bathtub upon check in. I didn't feel comfortable to use the jacuzzi due to its questionable cleanliness. 

The Bar again lacks atmosphere and character. The quality of linens were horrible. It was hurting my skin and I am not even exaggerating. We did not have lunch/dinner at the hotel. I was quite disappointed at the quality of breakfast item and especially the quality of coffee. The food was uninspiring. We were in ITALY for God's sake!! How can you mess up the coffee!!

It's about 15 minutes walk to town, they do not offer convenient schedule for shuttle bus service. We did have a car with us but it is very difficult to find parking in town.

The view was nice, but definitely it's not the best view in amalfi coast.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and it is truly Amazing. The service is great, courteous and friendly. The rooms are large and clean. The view is breathtaking. The staff really do go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. If you are planning on staying in Amalfi, definitely stay in this hotel, it is truly an experience.

My GBF brought me for an unforgettably luxurious break here. Our arrival was unauspicious - it was all I could do to keep from vomiting all over the reception's elegant marble floor after our taxi driver's enthusiastic style of driving around the winding coastal road from Naples. The concierge took one look at my white face and upgraded us to the honeymoon suite. Never before has a honeymoon suite been less used for its intended purpose but hey. What's not to like about a free upgrade to a private suite of rooms with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples, a huge jacuzzi, and free champagne on arrival? And between us and the rest of the hotel, a pathway through a terrace of lemon trees, which in May was full of scented blossom.

The staff continued to spoil us throughout our stay and called us their favourite couple. They seemed not to mind two idiotic 25 year old Brits cantering along their marble floors making horse noises, reading 19 century novels at the breakfast table, or J's screams as he attempted a swim in the Med (apparently he usually only swims in the West Indian sea, the git). This is the sort of hotel in which you only really need to go out for dinner. Otherwise eat in so you can spend the rest of your time lounging on the private beach terrace, reading, sleeping, sunbathing, and swimming. And yes, the sea is about 6 storeys down, but there's a handy lift set into the rock which saves your legs and lungs.

Thanks, O Santa Catarina, for a perfect honeymoon.
