“Fabulous Amalfi coast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

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.

This gem on the Amalfi coast is a family run hotel. The Milano family are some of the nicest hoteliers you will find. Each member of the staff goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant and memorable. They arranged transportation for us from Naples train station to the hotel. This is a must for most people as the other drivers will make youthful hair turn grey. Besides you can enjoy the views on the way to the hotel. They also arranged for our thansportation back by way of Ravello and Pompeii. With suggestions on what to see and the order in which to see them and where to have lunch we had a great last day in Italy.

The hotel itself is clean and has all the amenities you could want. The views from the rooms and the terrace will convince you that there is heaven on earth. There are water taxis below the hotel that will take you to the two tourist towns and to Capri, So if relaxing and soaking in the sun and scenery are not enough you can take excursions.

We will definetly make this a stop on our next trip. Thanks to the entire Milano family!

Room Tip: There is not a bad room in the hotel. Any one will be great.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Onda Verde for 5 days this month - after a rocky start. We received an email from the hotel telling us to call to arrange for a water taxi to meet us at the dock in Positano. When we called we were told - just take the water taxi when you arrive. It was a hassle, more expensive that originally told, and no-one could instruct us on how to reach the hotel once we arrived other than take the steep path with our heavy suitcases. What was not an auspicious beginning turned into a delightful stay at a lovely, family run hotel nestled into the side of a cliff with a heaven-made view. The spacious room (124) is well maintained, the bed very comfortable, and the view from our terrace was breathtaking. A sufficient breakfast was included in our room rate. The public bus stop is right at the hotel's parking lot making it a convenient, cost-effective location. Just don't expect the busses to be on time and be prepared to stand for the trip to Positano or Amalfi - but this is part of the experience. The staff including Francesca and Francesco were always helpful. They arranged for us to be picked up by a family-owned restaurant in Priano - La Strada where we enjoyed one of the best meals of our 2 week trip. I'm sure there are other equally beautiful hotels, but the Onda Verda is situated away from the maddening crowd, yet close enough to enjoy the entire coast. We highly recommend that you consider staying here - just arrive by car- not water taxi if you have luggage.. However, they graciously arranged for water taxis to take us to one of the other towns - a convenient alternative to the busses which allow for an incredible view of the coast,. I dream of returning!

Room Tip: No one we spoke to ad anything but glowing comments on their rooms. Sounds like they are all winners...

Hotel onda verde is a family run business. Their attention to personal detail makes all the difference in your over all experience. My family and I had the pleasure of spending 8days in Hotel onda verde. The rooms are very clean , the views of the sea from each room are exquisite. It is centrally located between Amalfi and Positano. There is not a town to walk to although there are wonderful paths to explore. Dinners were our favorite,the chief Nichol treated us like family making a special meal at our request. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting great views, good food and friendly professional service.

Room Tip: Sorry there is no pool or fitness it is not needed

This hotel was a great choice for our stay on the Amalfi..(three nights)
There was free undercover parking above the Hotel. The Onda Verde is built into the side of the mountain and the sea view from our room was beautiful.. Awesome sunrises and wonderful sunsets.
Our room was clean and spacious. The room was decorated in the style for the area..beautiful looking tiles (probably made in Praiano) and hand painted furniture. The bathroom had a large shower.
The hotel has it's own restaurant-The Breakfasts in the morning were generous. A big variety and a great spread. Their evening menu is also very good. The service was good and so was the food.
The staff on the reception were very pleasant efficient and attentive to our needs.
We loved our early morning walks...the pathway down from the hotel onto the "main" beach...the pier area where we swam in the ocean, and where we took a water taxi from...and the walks along the mountainside, all were very easy walks.
Even although we are very fussy, we loved our stay here, and will definitely visit again for a longer time.

The rooms are very nice and the one we occupied had seaview and terrace. The restaurant serves very good food with a varied menu and the breakfast was plentiful.

A few steps down you are on a pier from where you can take a nice swím.

Parking is offered free of charge which is nice as parking is a scarce commodity otherwise.

We stayed here for 6 nights. The room was always clean, the view from the balcony was breathtaking, the shower was hot and had good pressure. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were horrible - I started using decorative pillows from a couch after 2 days of bad sleep. Now few other remarks. First, women staff was more friendly than men staff. Second, breakfast was great except they do recycle baked good - cookies, pies and etc from day to day. After few days I would only try something that looked new that day. They even used powered sugar to dress up yesterday and the day before yesterday cookies one day. Their black coffee in a big pot tasted like an instant nescafe and I would not be surprised if it was nescafe, they have an espresso machine but no drip coffee maker in sight. They make you espresso, cappuccino and lattes on request. Lastly, it is in Praiano which is less touristy and thus you are stuck to be in the area around the hotel or walk to the town center, which is about 30 minutes away. We loved it since we love to walk but for other people it may be hard. Public buses are infrequent and taxis are expensive.
