“BETTER THAN A DREAM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at Villa Lara in Amalfi for 5 days. We have been to other parts of Italy, but nothing has even compared to our experience in Amalfi thanks to Villa Lara.
This beautiful Villa hotel has incredible rooms which were very spaciously laid out. The Staff were outstanding and treated us like family.
The complimentary breakfast was delicious and we got to enjoy it every morning on the terrace overlooking the town and the Mediterranean.
We will stay here again without hesitation the next time we go to Italy.
We really recommend Villa Lara! You won't be disappointed.

Villa Lara is a gorgeous boutique hotel in the heart of Amalfi town. The wonderful staff, Nello and Luca, made us so welcome from the moment we arrived. They recommended beautiful restaurants, advised us on the best trips to take and arranged our transport to and from the airport. Our room was immaculate, the view amazing and we were very sad to leave.

We have just left villa Lara after a fabulous 4 day trip in his area and are very sad as we are leaving a beautiful hotel and some genuinely friendly and kind people. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with superb hospitality which continued throughout our stay . The hotel is perfectly situated in Amalfi ,quiet but within easy walking distance to the centre. It is also a good base to explore Amalfi and we were given some excellent advice on trekking in the mountains by Luca and alfonso . Nello has many good contacts and put us in touch with patrizio, a sea captain with very good experience who took us out in his boat for a trip around the coast and some nearby islands. It was a fantastic experience and very highly recommend as you will see Amalfi in a completely different light . Patrizio is very knowledgeable and explained the history of Amalfi as well as show us some really impressive coves and areas of outstanding natural beauty which you cannot experience on foot .
As a hardened traveller , I would rate this hotel very highly for it's service, cleanliness,helpful staff and excellent location .

This little hotel has a lovely position overlooking Amalfi but back from the crowded centre and is the perfect retreat. It is only a small step to a wide choice of restaurants although we were very happy with Pizzeria Il Mulino near by which does excellent seafood. The surroundings are peaceful and we had no disturbance from other rooms in the building. The view from the terrace is superb. Breakfast is not extensive but fresh cheese and salami will be sliced if you wish. The staff are very friendly and helpful and provide everything you need for a comfortable stay. They arranged a very good car transfer back to Naples airport because our flight was too early to use public transport.

Service at the Villa Lara is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I would recommend this accommodation wholeheartedly. Nello and Lucca went out of their way to make our first stay on the Amalfi coast a memorable one.

We stayed for 5 nights in Amalfi at Villa Lara and we can't be more satisfied. The hotel is located exactly in the best spot in Amalfi. 4 minutes walking distance from the main square, and with the best view of the city and the sea ( it is over the hill but it has a brand new elevator to go up and down). Rooms are extremely clean and comfortable , and the shared Lliving rooms were great too. The breakfast with cappuccino in the terrace looking at the city amazing. The best was the service with Alfonso and specially Luca taking care of every detail to make us feel at home. We recommend this hotel 150%. We will be back for sure.

It's not about the location ( though that is great).It's not about the rooms, ( though they are pretty, well-appointed, and clean). It is about the great atmosphere and personal care from Nellio, Lucca and the night-porter, in fact the whole team who really have a way of relating to people so that you don't feel like just another number. We stayed for a week from May7th and had a great time. We could have chosen one of the big, flash, sleeping factories around Amalfi but we wouldn't have got the feel of Amalfi if we had. It is wonderful to be able to amble down into the town and sample all the many restaurants and bars it has to offer with such ease. We did have a hire car as we wanted to visit Herculaneum, Phaestum, and Naples, which are all within easy day-trip distance, so we used the parking facility down the road. Though not cheap, if you take into account the reasonable prices at the Villa Lara, together it isn't bad at all. The price of parking along this coast is astronomical, mainly because it's virtually immpossible! So this combination turned out to be the
ideal one for us.
If we have the luck to return to Amalfi we wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
