“The best place I have ever stayed in all the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The rooms the pool the beach the people the view were all 100%over the top. The management did all the could to make me and my friends feel like family with all the elegance and respect you look for in an upscale hotel. NO stuffiness just pure class! Everyone who worked there greeted me by name and would do anything they could to make it the best vacation I have ever had. I can not wait to go back next year and stay twice as long.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are spectacular

Wonderful hotel well located (15 minutes walking from Amalfi centre).
They care about all details, very friendly staff and excelente maintanance
The hotel have great views of Amalfi coast and ocean, the gardens are well conserved and they have a very cool Sicilian Lemon plantation (try to go down to the pool walking inside the gardens instead using the elevator)

Room Tip: Room 45, great location and wonderful view

Is it possible that everyone is this nice? Everyone this pleasant? Accommodating? Looking out for your best interest and personal happiness? If you stay here then the answer is YES. The hotel is as beautiful as the staff are kind -- and that's a lot. The rooms are so pretty and airy. What a stay!

Room Tip: The wifi is free but horrible. I hate to say it because everything else was impeccable. But yeah, th...

Wonderful room with its own jacuzzi, overlooking the bay on the top floor. wonderful service by people who are genuinely committed to their vocation. Beautiful venue for dinner on the open terrace.They even had the most wonderful firework display whilst we were eating. ( we wonder'd why there where wooden barges being deployed on the sea all afternoon)

Some beautiful local people, as it turned out, where tying the knot in the Hotel. To top it all there was a youth orchestra competition being hosted in Amalfi Cathedral and the winners were from Bradford in west Yorkshire in the U.K, a stones throw from our home in Horsforth, North Leeds!

This is a 5 star hotel, evident from the moment you arrive. Every employee is nice and willing to help in every way possible. The hotel is in a setting that can only be described as spectacular. Right on the Amalfi coast, overlooking the Med Sea, private beach and pool, a wonderful restaurant for breakfast and dinner, and a less formal restaurant at the beach/pool for lunch. The breakfasts are a real treat - buffet style with every possible fresh food imaginable with freshly squeezed juices. Dinner was spectacular, the food, the view, the service, the menu and its diversity, all fresh food and freshly prepared to perfection - the restaurant staff are 5 star in very way. A short hotel shuttle to center of town, or a 15 minute walk to town. The hotel offers free parking. The rooms all overlook the Med Sea, with private balconies and terraces. The floor is all hand made local "ceramica" floor tile inlaid with hand painted floral and other scenes. Rooms, bathrooms, hallways etc are meticulously maintained and all painted in Venetian plaster. I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel - it is expensive and worth every penny - many of the staff have been there for decades and the hotel is family owned for what is now four generations. Splurge and stay here. And listen the recommendations of Gennaro the concierge who cannot do enough for hotel guests.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but the larger the terrace the nicer the overall experience.

As part of our private day tour along the Amalfi Coast on Jul 28, our driver Raffaele from Iacarrino Sorrento Limousine Service took us to have a brief stop at this hotel cafe to take nice photos and enjoy the view from this 5 stars hotel in the region. We would loved to stay in here in the future, the facilities of the hotel were so COOL -- swimming pool was injected with sea water, and the view was excellent -- already thinking to go back to stay there for at least a week!

Words cannot express the experience of staying in this hotel in Amalfi. I have stayed here many times and It is the absolute best. From the staff, the food, the rooms, the view, everything is impeccable. Stay here if you can splurge! You'll never forget it.

Room Tip: Ask for a full sea view.
