My wife and I have just spent a week in this hotel and enjoyed an excellent holiday, that was made the better due to the first class organisation and running of the hotel and its facilities. Upon transfer from Naples airport the hotel had a vehicle awaiting us at the bus station in Amalfi and our luggage was unloaded and conveyed to the hotel. We were booked in quickly and given our room keys, and invited to join the holiday group in the lounge at six in the evening for a welcome cocktail.
The room was not on a grand style, but contained all that was needed for a short stay, beds were comfortable and in the chilly evenings the heating came on to keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature, the en suite could have been a little larger, but it fulfilled all our requirements, was clean, and maintained to the same high standard for the period of our stay with clean towels being exchanged on demand and hot water always being readily available.
We took the half board option and the menu which was changed each evening offered a three course meal with three choices of starter, three choices for main course and two courses for desert, in seven days I never had a meal that I did not thoroughly enjoy, and the service afforded by the head waiter and his staff was absolutely first class.
Each morning a buffet breakfast was available and the choices again were excellent, with cereals, various jams, pates, cheese and ham on offer each morning together with fresh bread, croissants, yoghurts, fresh fruit, fruit juices and choices of coffee or tea offered at the table.
The small bar was staffed by a very helpful barman who was both friendly and efficient at his task of providing whatever refreshment was asked for.
My general view is that the hotel is well run, clean, comfortable and functional and is an excellent base from which to explore the area. The staff during my stay provided a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that made our holiday very special.
