This Santa Caterina is a really good place. A beautifull view, a very nice garden that takes you down to the sea ,a lift to bring you back to your room (may be 100 meters above the sea level). The room itself had a funny bathroom, and more important, opened on a small terrace on the garden and had a breathtaking view.
We were there in May, and were looking for a place that could be warmer than the average (no cold wind), and with the cliff behind us, this one was great. By the sea side, there is a nice swimming pool.We had prevailing winds from the North West, and the sea itself was calm and clean (with a small grotto to swimm in).Sea temperature was at 20C, the pool at about 25C (salt water)
With the good local weather condition, many tropical plants are at home in the hotel s garden (more than in Capri or Ravello), and you really fear far from Europe.
In addition, the staff is friendly, they will take care of your car and your boarding passes, the restaurants are good, and walking to Amalfi is not that difficult (when compared to San Pietro in Positano) .
