My partner and another couple enjoyed 2 nights here in mid-November. Though not in the town, the hotel location was practical for most things; though the car was a necessity (free parking provided. Most charge). Only a couple of minutes drive into the closest shops and restaurants. The pizzeria, who's name I can't remember, (the Hotel will recommend it to you if you ask) was very good with a very welcoming family running it. We realized we had gone to the wrong pizzeria (that was very average) so this family spruced them up and kept them hot, while they cooked another for us. We laughed so much. Another story in itself.
The hotel staff were a delight! The first staff to offer to carry our bags in all our Italian travels, of which we have been lucky enough to have had many recently. They couldn't have been more helpful. Really made you feel special and not just another customer. I even felt we were a little demanding a couple of times but they never showed it if it bothered them.
The views of the coast from their restaurant and large balcony are spectacular! We regrettably didn't eat in their restaurant. The food we saw come out looked very good. (Set menu, 24 euros) The rooms themselves have narrow windows but you can squeeze a view in without much effort. In our room we had a very small balcony to stand on and look out. Our friends room had only a small window. Otherwise, comfortable with all you could need, though we would have liked the heating to have been on. Bit early in the season for it, but it got darned cold those nights.
The only real complaint is that the room walls were very thin and there was a fair bit of noise early in the mornings. The hairdryer in the next room sounded like a vacuum cleaner in our room at about 7.30am. The flushing toilets of the adjoining rooms were annoying and I felt I might be bothering others by using ours.
Otherwise an enjoyable stay and great value for money.
BTW, this was a great time of the year to go to the otherwise packed Amalfi coast. Can't imagine how clogged those little winding roads get in the high season. Very slow moving as it was, with virtually no traffic.
