“Once in a lifetime honeymoon...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

As my husband and I get ready to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary, we can't help but smile and remember the most amazing honeymoon at Santa Caterina in Amalfi.
From the warm and friendly greeting upon arrival to the special touches (dinner reservations, day trips to wineries, Capri) arranged by the wonderful staff, we were so well taken care of!
We stayed at the beautiful Santa Caterina for 13 days and enjoyed every single second of our stay. We upgraded to the Chalet Giulietta & Romeo on our last 2 nights and it was a dream come true!
The grounds were immaculately maintained and the room accommodations were divine.
The staff were absolutely amazing, especially Simone, Gigi, Lello and so many more!
We felt like an extended part of the Santa Caterina family when we left.
We are so looking forward to coming back to celebrate our 5 year anniversary! (and perhaps our 10, 15, 20, etc.)
Santa Caterina Hotel is the ultimate!

The hotel without a doubt is fitting for the title one of the world's best hotel. The view alone is breathtaking and worth the stay. Please remember that the hotel has been around for a while now and you are able to see this from the common facilities of the hotel. However with that being said, the room is spacious, the amenities is first class. Do ask for a room with a view and you won't be disappointed. The hotel interior and atmosphere is majority in white. The character of the room is that of a resort of mediterranean. The hotel is located less than 5 minutes away from the Amalfi city.

We loved the staff, the view and the feel of the hotel (although the buffet breakfast was pretty bad - watery eggs, etc). If it weren't for all of that, we would have given a Poor rating to the hotel, because it was so noisy. The maids yell at each other in the hallways and while cleaning the rooms early in the morning, the rooms have tile floors and chairs with no sound protection on their legs, the room doors have no sound protection on them and therefore are loudly slamming constantly, workers outside make a racket early in the morning, etc., etc. Noise alone, from chairs sliding around in occupied rooms above us, cut our sleep time in half and ruined our stay. And we talked with 4 other couples who experienced the same sleepless nights. Management could do so much to fix this. Forget having a peaceful, quiet stay.

After the beautiful drive up the mountains arrived to the hotel we were greeted by a friendly face who took our luggage and let us to the front desk. Everyone was friendly they let us to our room got our bags situated for us showed us how to work the whirlpool explained the complementary breakfast and how to work the TV along with the beautiful view of the ocean. We made dinner reservations here and before then we strolled down the beautiful stone path that was lit up by little lanterns and pieces of wood that were carved into the mountain. When we came back we entered the dining room which was filled with candlelight and beautiful flowers. We ate one of the best meals we have had in Italy do not even think about the price it is totally worth every cent. Even at a high and restaurant such as this the waitstaff was fun loving kind and personable. When we arrived back in our room they had set up little mats at our bedside along with slippers a little water and cups by her nightstand. We use the Jacuzzi and got into a robe and slippers while overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The room was beautifully decorated with old vintage furniture interesting books a beautiful bar and wonderful floor tiles. Even the amenities were amazing anything you want here they will give it to you, there's a spa a pool is very helpful concierge and a bar. We slept with the door open so that we could see the moon rippling along the ocean I cannot tell you how much this meant. We have been in Italy for two weeks and this by far has been one of the best stays and locations for a little rustic getaway ever. I highly recommend this hotel it has been one of the best experiences and definitely once-in-a-lifetime.

After arriving a day too early for our reservation at another Amalfi hotel, we were happy to find a room at the Santa Caterina for the night. The first day's experience so was wonderful that we did not bother to return to our original hotel and stayed the entire time at the Santa Caterina. The people, the food, the room, the view-all amazing. Without being snobby, we have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the finest hotels in the US and beyond, they were all wonderful but did not have the "feel" of the Santa Caterina. It is more than a luxury hotel, it was almost a home. This is because they thought of everything before we did and the staff made us feel so welcome. Expensive but it is only money and can never match up to the experience.

Room Tip: They have a room off the beaten path, all alone at the end of a walkway. No other room around. No on...

We had the most amazing week long honeymoon stay here in March 2013 and it will be a long time before we will forget the hotel, the place, the people and not to mention the food! You genuinely feel like a Hollywood superstar!

If only we could afford to come every year!

Stayed in the Chalet Giulietta & Romeo honeymoon suite which is worth every penny for the sun rise into the bedroom and the views of Amalfi town.

Wish we were there now!!!

Room Tip: Chalet Giulietta & Romeo is possibly one of the most amazing rooms you can rent in Italy! It'...
