“Honeymoon Shining Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon from 9/30/13 to 10/5/13 and it was superb! The staff was always so quick to give us a recommendation, make a reservation or help in any way possible. Admittedly my Italian is not perfect, they were able to communicate in English and did so in a way that didn't make me feel bad.

The actual hotel was gorgeous. It was very clean and I loved the open atmosphere of the lobby and dining area. Our room was amazing, I am not sure if the hotel knew it was our honeymoon and we weren't upgraged to a suite or anything but we had a large room with a big window that gave us the perfect view of the beach/ocean/coastline. It was breathtaking to wake up to every morning and the sounds of the waves crashing as we fell asleep was a huge plus.

The staff came through and cleaned the room once a day in addition to turning down the room in the evening and leaving cute biscottis with new bottles of water.

The breakfast was great, somewhat disjointed, I think one AM I had a pasta and cheese dish with croissant and eggs but it was delicious. I believe the chef's name is Antonio and one morning when we came down to breakfast a little late, he still made us eggs! One of the waitors was particularly special (Irasimo (sp)) when we were surrdounded by 3-4 bees he came out wielding placemats to try and scare off the bees. He was so awesome and thoughtful. I still laugh when I think about him trying to get the bees away.

We also enjoyed the roof deck pool at the end of almost every day, it closes a little on the early side (6:30 PM) but the attendant, Leo was so awesome. Just a really friendly, sweet guy. We enjoyed spending an hour or so every day relaxing from whatever we did that day with a quick dip and a glass of white wine.

The location was almost perfect, set back away from the busy town but a very quick 5 minute walk to the ferrys/buses/town. The entrance to the hotel is located right on a pretty severe hairpin turn so that took some getting used to when we exited the hotel just as a tour bus was making that turn but something like this cannot be helped.

I cannot say enough about this place. We had an excellent time!

Marina Riviera is a small (35) room boutique hotel in Amalfi Italy, with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Amalfi and the mountains. You are greeted by the owner, Don Antonio and his terrific staff. A, enormous buffet breakfast is included. The rooms and baths are modern and beautifully appointed and while not overly large they are perfect. Cost came to about 500 euros per night and worth every bit. Right near some of the best restaurants in Italy, scenic squares and cobble stone alleys with terrific shopping. Everything is easy walking distance from the hotel. And if you are looking for the best tour guide try Sergio Caggia at Nerone Tours. Wonderful guides and the best service possible.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but make sure you are up high and in the wing with the elevator.

We have just returned from a marvelous two-week stay at this wonderful hotel. Perched on a hillside, the Marina Riviera has magnificent views of the Amalfi coastline. The hotel is centrally located within easy walking distance to the center of town and both ferry and bus lines. The food at the hotel was excellent and the service impeccable. The Marina Riviera is a gem. We can't wait to return!

This place was amazing... Location was perfect, staff was professional but friendly. I felt very 'at home' and comfortable here. The sun deck was very cool, over looking the coast and the marina - awesome view! The rooms were basic, but clean and big enough. A small place, you feel part of the family. The breakfast Was outstanding.

What a fantastic little hotel nudged into the cliff, the staff were very helpful and all spoke clear english, very clever renovated hotel, retaining most of the traditional features of this very old hotel, tastefully decorated combining the old with the new and from what i see all rooms have sea views. Old windows have been replaced with very large windows which effortlessly open allowing the outside in, step out onto your balcony which is large ( for italy ) some of the rooms have no or small balconies, i guess we got this room as it is the end of season. Quite pricey minibar, but the shops are only 100 mts away. The rooftop pool , bar lounge area is lovely, the water is tepid. Although its raining now, its still a mesmorising view from the comfort of my bed, love this place.
One small criticism , a bit noisy during the day when the maids are cleaning adjoining rooms , but if it wasnt raining i wouldnt be in my room......
Would definately stay here again and

Room Tip: ask for the large balcony, the restaurant in the hotel is no 2 rated out of 226 reviews for this tow...

A fun hotel to kick off our Amalfi holiday! Our room overlooked the ocean and we were able to keep the window open most of the time! Room was well appointed and modern. Really enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean and town. Very convenient to walk to town just dont get run over by a crazy Italian driver. Also take advantage of having a glass of wine in the evening on the terrace. Be prepared for a lot of stairs. The pool is on the top floor, also with incredible views and a nice bar.

This hotel was right on the coast and very close to the center of town. Views from our room terrace were amazing, looking out at the water as well as the town of Amalfi. Our room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed and couch. Bathroom was modern with a rain shower. We enjoyed having breakfast the 2nd floor terrace. The hotel offered eggs cooked to order, cappuccino/ coffee as well as a nice selection of yogurt, fruit, cheese, meat, pasta and pastries. The pool was very relaxing, staff was polite and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying at Marina Riviera while in Amalfi.

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms have a great view, some have small and some have large terraces.
