Our stay at La Pergola began with a lovely suprise of an upgrade to a room with a private terrace complete with sunbeds. On arrival in Amalfi we were awestruck by its beauty. The only downside being the amount of steps needed to take down to secluded beaches. The transport facilities to travel around the coast were amazing. Regular bus service which was easy to negotiate. Boats from the beach were regular and complimentary.
The hotel itself is a couple of kilometres outside Amalfi town but buses stop directly outside and will have you in the centre within 5 minutes. While we have stayed in more luxurious hotels this is more than made up for by the friendliness of the hotel staff, Sara & Danni in particular could not do enough to ensure our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. The rooms are clean and functional, no complaints there, and the breakfasts were continental style with a few added extras and were lovely. The owners too were always on hand to ensure the smooth running of the hotel and even gave us a small present on departure.
The hotel has parking facilities (at a cost of 10 Euros per day) but this is worth the investment. It is on a main road so there is some noise but it really isn't too intrusive, we can't imagine the noise levels of some of the hotels in Amalfi town! Opposite the hotel on what they call the "crossroads" is a small shop/bar with a pizzeria above. The views from the terrace are simply wondrful, the food is lovely and the portions are enormous and the prices are 50% cheaper than we found anywhere else. It doesn't look much from the outside but don't be put off or miss out.
All in all a great week at a great hotel in a great place. If you enjoy your week half as much as we did you will have a great time.
