“Loved everything! Great for families.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

This small, family run, rustic inn and former monastery was the hightight of our trip. Location was ideal; on the beach, with easily accessible activities and boats to other areas of interest right out in front. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff was exceptionally warm, friendly and helpful. All staff member were like family, accomodated all of our needs, as well as those of other guests. The food at the restaurant was incredible! I would highly recommend Hotel Certosa and plan to stay there again. Its perfect for families with children.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!! We found this wonderful hotel by accident. The hotel manager Alfonso is superb, anything we needed help with no matter what time he was always there to help. The entire staff at la certosa is equally as helpful. This small family run hotel makes you feel as if your one of the family. Breakfast in the morning is excellent, especially loved the cappucino and croissants. The hotel alos has a wonderful restaurant and the food is out of this world good!!!! Best part of the hotel is that its right on the beach, with beach chairs and umbrellas for when the sun gets too hot.

My husband and I, spent 4 nights at Hotel Certosa. It is a beautiful fishing villages with around 6/7 restaurants all in walking distance. We did a couple of boat trips one to Amalfi and Positano which was wonderful (30 euros for a full day from 09:00 - 17:30) and Capri the next, if you only have chance to do one trip I would suggest Amalfi and Positano as Capri is extremely expensive and very busy, however do both if you have the time! The family at the hotel were very kind to us and we treated very well, I would recommend this hotel to families and couples. If you are looking for nightlife this is not the place as the village shuts down around 11:00 most evenings, perfect for early morning boat trips. The rooms are basic but this is to be expected in most parts of Italy, they are of course clean with comfortable beds, you won't spend anytime in it anyway once you see what is on your doorstep!

Enjoy your trip!

We arrived not really knowing what to expect but we unknowingly stumbled across a hidden gem. The hotel has everything you would need, situated on the secluded beach of Marina Del Cantone, Amazing home cooked authentic italian food made by Mama was very reasonably priced. Eat what they have in that day, there's no need to eat off from the menu! We loved the friendly service and family atmosphere, it felt like we were part of the village very quickly! As long as you relax and enjoy the pace of this small village life you'll love it! It's our 3rd trip in 12 months!

We stumbled across La Certosa on the internet. Upon arrival, we were initially concerned by the derelict first impression of the hotel. As soon as we checked in and saw the lovely beach and the idylic setting, we loved it! The hotel room iteself was sparse but totally adequate. We were perplexed why the "balcony" was a stone wall, that you had to stand up to see over to the top. The beach was quiet, we hired a boat for 40 Euros for two hours, ate at the lovely beach hut and just relaxed. We were there for four days and it was incredible. If you hire a car you're really close to Sorrento, about half an hour away - where you can island hop to Capri. A perfect location, and a little secluded gem! Please note that parking is an additional cost at £10 per day - but there is no where else to park!

We stayed at the hotel for three nights half board,which we thought will only include two courses but we find from staff that this include a full three course meal. That is exceptional for your money. We had large room with balcony with view of the mountains. Hotel is situated on a pebble beach which is ok but there is few nice walks up in to the mountain and also a walk to next beach. Three days in the week at 9 am you can get a boat to island of Capri which is absolutly amazing to visit.
Overall experience 10 out of 10.

This hotel is just a few meters away of the sea...The family Caputo is running this lovely and romantic hotel.... They prepare godious food, so typical Italian food, and prepared with a passionated spirit.And that is what you taste, and makes them so different of the others.
'Passion' is the drive in the entire family. Alfonso , Alessandro, Rosiris,Luisa, Corado are the nice people that you must learn to know. The entire family is waiting just for you and make your dreams come true!
If you're are looking for H E A V E N just go there and enjoy ! Just on the front of the hotel there is a boat waiting for you to go to Capri. No stress at all ...at a very reasonal price
Enjoy also the nice views of the sea , Mont Alto, Punta Campanella etc.
You can make also very beautiful walks to la baia di Ieranto, Mitigliano, Punta Campanella, Crapolla, Recommone, and a few kms away la passegiata degli Dei!
Don't hesitate !!
