My husband and I recently stayed in the Villa Meridiana which is managed by the Hotel dei Cavalieri together with 2 other couples. The house has four bedrooms and is located about a half mile outside of Amalfi. This house is in need of a major renovation.... While the house itself is charming in many ways, there are also many many problems. For one thing, it is very very difficult to take a hot or even luke-warm shower!! There was rarely ANY hot water at all in the three upstairs bathrooms. Most days, the 6 of us took turns showering in the one bathroom located on the first floor. We continually asked the manager of the Hotel Cavalieri to remedy the situation.... he would tell us it was all fixed.... but that would prove to be incorrect. Furthermore, the air-conditioner was broken in one of the upstairs bedrooms for 4 out of the 7 nights we were there.... In order to cool off THAT room, we had to leave the doors to the other bedrooms (where the air was working) open..so that we could cool off the entire second floor. For $6,000.00 for the week, this seems to me to be a little ridiculous!!!!! The furniture in the sitting area is in a terrible state.... it looks like it was donated from a second hand shop.... there was nothing charming about it at all!! It should be replaced immediately!! Luckily it didn't rain at all when we were there, so there was no reason to stay in doors. I would NOT recommend this property in it's current condition.
