“Hotel Santa Caterina - Amalfi 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Vacation of a life time. The views are AMAZING!! The staff at Hotel Santa Caterina are professional! We had room service in our balcony room overlooking the Mediterranean and yachts coming in for a wedding reception. Simply the best.

Room Tip: Deluxe Balcony room has an opening window in the bath tub area allowing the fresh sea air in. Love...

This past trip was our fourth time we have stayed at the Santa Caterina and it was another amazing experience. Having stayed at Le Sirenuse and other top hotels, this is still our favorite. We always worry that it won't be as good as the last time we went, but that has never been the case. In fact, this time was one of the best times ever. The majority of the staff has been at the hotel for at least 10 years plus and get to know you by name. The service is exceptional and nothing is ever a problem. We have stayed both in the main building and the Villa Santa Caterina. The Villa Santa Caterina is located a short walk (some stairs) through a path that passes the citrus gardens. If you want to be close to the restaurants, pool and spa and don't feel like walking much, then stay in the main building. After staying in both buildings, we actually look forward to the walk through the gardens to get to our room (especially after a big dinner) and prefer the Villa section. Regardless, the views are spectacular in both so you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have great views. As mentioned above, if you don't like walking much, stay in...

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.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

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.
