The food here is soooo good! For breakfast there is an enormous choice of italian breads and cakes to choose from, all home made and absolutely delicious. The bacon and sausage, as usual, are continental but edible, there is cheese, ham and tomatoes, etc for continental version.Several cereals plus milk or yogurt. Fruit juice is made from powder and not much choice of fresh fruit and if you are not there early the choice is limited to what is left out, but you only had to ask for what you wanted and they brought it to you, so that was brilliant. The three course evening meals were fantastic, 3 choices of starter, 3 choice of main, one dessert (but fruit or ice cream offered instead if you didn't like the dessert. All freshly cooked and absolutely gorgeous. The chef does cooking lessons and if you liked that sort of thing I imagine it would be well worth it, he can really cook. They provide pool/beach towels and both pool and beach are lovely. Rooms are rustic, but very clean and comfortable. The only down side to this hotel, and the reason I have given 4 stars is the need to use either the courtesy bus or public transport to get into Amalfi or to the beach, which was often full and one of our party got left behind on one occasion which meant they had to wait another hour to get back to the hotel. The staff are excellent, there is sometimes a problem in translation and misunderstandings did occur, but that is entirely our fault as we cannot speak Italian, at least they try very hard to assist in whatever you ask of them. All in all a really lovely holiday in an extremely beautiful part of the world.
