“Breakfast on the Terrace - molto bene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Booked this based past reviews and did not go wrong. What a location and the views from the room (a triple with plenty of room) and the terrace are wonderful, Being 100m up the road from the town centre meant it was that bit quieter and you look back on the town. Beach towels and an access path to a private beach are provided.

Of note is the breakfast spread with individually cooked eggs to you liking, multiple breads and pastries and a selection of european honeys. Want a proper Italian coffee, they will happily make it for you. Service was always top class.

yes it costs a bit more than many hotels in the town, but it was worth ebery penny. Will be back again.

Room Tip: Book early and ask for a room with a view. Parking is not easy

Over a period of months i was watching on trip advisor both the Grand Hotel Convento (5 star) and the Marina Riviera. I chose Marina Riviera because of the opposite feel on staff and service from the Grand Hotel Convento. My philosophy is simple, if you're going to pay good money, whoever you're paying better provide the service that goes along with it. The reviews about the Convento didn't indicate that.

The Marina Riviera was fantastic. The hotel service was the best we experienced in our 4 city stay (Bellagio, Lucca, Orvieto, Amalfi). On a daily basis from top to bottom the staff was caring and friendly, from the bar to the breakfast staff, and the front desk. The front desk (Especially Lucia :) Ciao Lucia) was helpful in explaining tours, places to go etc.

I did meet and talk with the owner Giusy, i did not speak with her husband Antonio. She was so proud of the fact that Kim Kardashian stayed at her other Hotel the Caterina, she showed me all the photos. I'm glad i met her she was a very friendly woman and owner.

Our room was perfect (#53), with a balcony and jacuzzi overlooking the small bay and the beach. The room itself was wonderful, pure white vaulted ceilings, the bed facing the arched windows out to the sea! The only thing I would tell Giusy is to get the darn TV (permanently mounted at the end of the bed) out of the way of the view. The bathroom was also spectacular and fully modern, the best we experienced. The airconditioning was quiet enough. While this room was over the road, the double heavy doors blocked almost all noise. The room was cleaned spotlessly.

The breakfasts were the best we experienced in Italy, with a full range of food. Didn't need lunch after the breakfast they served. We did use the pool roof one night and it was awesome as the sun was going down. Interesting thought Affonso said it was closing down around 7:30 early for Italy, oh well no worries.

The bar was always open or someone from the front desk stepped into the breach to help.

Amalfi was a great location for half day trips to: Ravello, Positano, Pompeii etc. The ferries all stop here.

Would we stay at the Marina Riviera again? Absolutely! Probably our best Hotel Experience in Italy, after 5 different trips here. Giusy and Antonio keep it up! and keep hiring the same friendly staff! That is primo!

One more final touch by the Riviera. By email i told them it was our wedding anniversary (we were married in Italy 5 years previously in Sept). The provided us with complimentary Champagne and a certificate by the owners. A wonderful touch and we kept our certificate.

We will back.

Room Tip: A view of both the Mediterranean and the town of Amalfi from Room # 53!

We stayed at the Hotel Marina Riviera for 3 nights in early September and were impressed by the staff friendliness, their service and the quality of the rooms. The free fast wi fi was a bonus as well as the excelent restaurant Eolo in the same building.
The service at the rooftop pool was great and the room and hotel were exceptionly clean.
You could not find a better setting for evening drinks than on the terrace looking towards the setting sun with the lights of Amalfi before you.

A great hotel in a fabulous location. A 2 minute walk away from the town centre, yet positioned to provide fantastic views of the town and the bay from its windows and balconies. En-suite room was spacious with plenty of hanging and drawer space. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The roof-top sun terrace (more of those fabulous views!) and pool were strong competition for a sun-bed on the nearby beach (discount through the hotel).
Sister hotel to the five star Santa Caterina on the far side of the bay where we went for an excellent dinner one night. A free taxi to and from the Santa Caterina was provided and we were very well looked after by the staff there.
Did not find time to fit in a meal at the excellent (according to reviews) adjoining Eolo restaurant; just one of the many reasons to return before too long!

After an arduous trip from Rome we were so relieved to arrive at this beautiful hotel. The entire week was a completely rewarding experience. We were warmly greeted and welcomed with a fruit plate and bottle of champaign. Our room was everything and more than we expected. To reiterate what so many others have said, exceptional views, cleanliness, delicious breakfasts and most importantly friendly and helpful staff. The roof top pool was a welcome retreat from the warm temps. Roberta and Lucia were constant sources of information, assistance and good cheer. Alexandro, Raffaele and Raffaella were terrific. The owners of the property were very gracious and a pleasure to talk to. They must be very proud of the pleasure they bring to so many guests. In short we would highly recommend the Marina Riviera as a first class hotel.

LOCATION
Wonderful, right on the coast, superb sea and coastline views and less than 5 minutes stroll to the centre of Amalfi.
FACILITIES
Excellent. Our superior room was spacious and well equipped with minibar, aircon and lovely views from its little balcony. The en-suite bathroom was equipped to a very high standard with full-size bath, separate (roomy) shower cubicle, hair dryer etc. Plenty of high quality towels which were changed daily and super snow white crisp bedding which was also changed daily. Due to a general transport strike in Italy we had to stay an extra day and were transferred to a standard room which was only slightly smaller and had an over-bath shower. It had a lovely sea view and was also a very good room.
The roof-top solarium had a very nice pool, comfortable sunbeds with mattresses and towels. There was also a toilet/shower room next to the pool. Every afternoon a large platter of chilled fruit skewers was provided for the solarium users with the compliments of the hotel. Breakfast was extremely good, varied and plenty of it. Hot food was available - including bacon and eggs!
STAFF
The staff just made our stay so very memorable. They were helpful, pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. All had good English and were happy to talk. The standard of cleanliness and general ambience were first class.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, aircon and double glazing.

We had a fantastic 3 night stay in this hotel and were sad to leave. The location was brilliant, rooms comfortable and best of all the level of service from staff made us feel very special. We'll be back soon!

Room Tip: We had superior rooms and could not fault them.
