I have thought long and hard before doing this review.
I believe Onda Verde is the perfect location for a holiday on the Amalfi coast.
We spent six nights here visiting all surrounding towns.
We had dinner at the hotel several times and the food was lovely.
Breakfast was the same each day perhaps something different in the way of hot food apart from scrambled eggs and bacon in that time would have been nice.
The thing that disappointed us was that we arrived at 930pm after travelling for more than twelve hours very tired after being delayed at naples airport as our luggage was lost. The hotel knew our situation and at no stage offered us any help with this distressing situation or even asked if our luggage had turned up. It became obvious to us that luggage being lost at naples airport is not an unusual thing. After nearly three days our luggage turned up at the hotel no one notified us and we found our bags sitting in the foyer! We would greatly have appreciated the offer of help in tracking down our luggage as we don't speak Italian and communication was extremely difficult. The other thing that occurred to us is that if this is a common thing it would have been lovely to have been offered toothbrushes and toothpaste.
I have to say the lady on the front desk was the most friendly and helpful staff member unfortunately I can't remember her name. The young male who works at the hotel could be more helpful.
Our room was spotless and had the most amazing view.
The walk down to the lovely beach directly below the hotel was easy and there are several restaurants there also.
Onda verde is a fabulous choice location wise and it was lovely to be away from the crowds of positano and Amalfi.
A little more personal care when something goes wrong when you are travelling would have been greatly appreciated when you are in a country a long way from home.
