This must rank as the best hotel we have ever stayed in. From arrival to departure the standard of service was exemplary.This is not a stuffy hotel, but it is glamourous with charm and warmth. This derives from the fact that it is independently owned and the staff here really care about the service that they provide.
We had booked a deluxe double but they had upgraded us to a suite in the Villa Rossi. which was located via a lift ride and a short walk through the terraced garden. Our room was large with a balcony containing two seating areas. The room itself contained a very large and comfortable bed, a walk in wardrobe, a very nice bathroom with his and hers sinks, a seating area and, oh yes, the room also contained a 6 foot by 6 foot jacuzzi!
We had booked half board ( as part of our package from Citalia, fantastic value) and found the quality of the food at both breakfast and dinner to be excellent. The waiting staff were all very well trained and knowledgable about the items being served. They were closely supervised by the Maitre D' who knew the standards that were required and made sure that those standards did not slip.
Tne hotel is located about 1 km outside Amalfi, you can walk into the town but this involves walking along the very busy road, it is not a walk you could call relaxing. The hotel offers a free half hourly shuttle from 8 - 12 and then 3 - 6:30, the member of staff who usually drove the shuttle was one of the doormen and like all the staff was very friendy and professional.
The hotel has a pool and sunbathing beach area, spa and small gym. These are reached via a stunning lft ride due to the lovely views. The terraced gardens within which the hotel is situated are lovely with beautiful fragrant wisteria, lemon and orange trees. It is a tranquil oasis of beauty and calm. Do not hesitate to book this hotel, you will not be disappointed and will be counting the days to your return as we are doing. Enjoy!
