“Effortlessly Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We have been lucky enough to have stayed in some great hotels but none can hold a candle to the Santa Caterina. From the moment we drove into the forecourt, our every need and wish was met instantly and perfectly but without the slightest hint of entitled privilege. Every public space is beautifully decorated with gorgeous tiled floors, wide open windows and flowers everywhere with an emphasis on welcoming warmth and comfort. Our room was beyond spectacular with the most amazingingly sumptuous bathroom and a bouganvilla-covered balcony with table and chairs and a breathtaking view over the Mediterranean. Breakfast every morning was a feast with an astounding range of delicious choices, served either in the windowed dining room or the open-air terrace. Our evenings were spent at the open-air bar overlooking the sea before dinner at one of the two dining rooms. The meals in both were perfectly wonderful and the service was exemplary. The cliff-side elevator ride down to the sea-side pool is a complete treat as is the incomparable beauty of the pool, its bar and outdoor dining room. It is impossible to convey just how unbelievably beautiful all of the facilities are at this spectacular hotel, how warm, welcoming and unfussy it is and how sterling the service. We envy you your stay!

Been to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello
Positano hotels highly rated but the crowds and noise ruin it
Ravello class hotels but too far from the water
Amalfi in between and just right
This dream of a hotel is in the outskirts of Amalfi
5 stars, private owned and on the Mediterranean
Low key, high class luxury with comfort.
This is where the rich, famous and you should go when you dont want to be the rich and famous or just you for a few days.....just left alone but close enough to all the towns.....
and the rooms and views just right with beautiful Italian tile.

Stayed there June 2014 and it was amazing! The staff is very friendly. I'm a sucker for nice bath amenities which they have...Frette sheets, I could go on and on. The pool is almost sea level so you can sun bathe, dip in the pool, or jump into the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. We stayed in the villas through the lemon groves and couldn't say anything bad about the property.

We had a wonderful honeymoon at the Hotel Santa Caterina. The service, the food, the rooms, the views were all impeccable. The staff bent over backwards to be accommodating in every possible way. They made our stay incredibly special and personal. We hope to return again for our anniversary. The Ritz Carlton in Charlotte, NC where we had our wedding should take some tips from this wonderfully run hotel.

We enjoyed a wonderful experience at this hotel. Our family (2 adults, 3 kids ages 16, 14 and 10) stayed there for 4 days in April. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. They were accommodating to our family (we had adjoining rooms and shared a "lobby"). The rooms were quite spacious (even with the roll away in the kids' room), and even the bathrooms were beautiful and huge!
Although the ocean "beach" and pool was just being opened for the season. We enjoyed time there (the pool is heated) and made use of the gym (you want to work out when the treadmill faces the ocean)! The staff was spectacular, from wait staff to concierge to the housekeepers. We didn't have a car with us so we were happy to use the hotel's shuttle into Amalfi (although we also walked to and from a lot, but didn't feel comfortable doing it in the dark). We got recommendations for restaurants in Amalfi and Atrani and enjoyed a spectacular dinner one night in our hotel restaurant. The daily breakfast buffet was also unforgettable.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area!

Room Tip: We had ocean-facing rooms and the view was spectacular.
