Proving that 5 star hotels don't need a guy with a top hat and tails out front, we found the Tramonto d'Oro elegant, beautiful, with great service and stupendous views. We stayed five nights in a "superior" room on floor -1 (it's dug into a cliff), where the view of Positano across the water, from our balcony, was truly something else. The same amazing view from the pool deck on the roof, and from the restaurant (which merits a separate review -- excellent). Room was comfortable and like everything else, beautiful. We didn't see what the standard, view-less rooms looked like, but felt that having the view and balcony was worth the cost.
Staff was very helpful and friendly whenever we needed anything. Given their location, I was a bit hesitant that this would be one of those places that just sits on its view, but no -- they do try hard and provide an outstanding experience.
The room included breakfast, which was excellent and quite generous by local standards. Great selection of fruit, pastries, cheese, eggs, etc. The rooftop pool was great to relax in during the "siesta" time in the middle of the day (also makes the property highly visible if you're hiking the "path of the gods" from Bomerano to Nocello). Just below the hotel is a short path (10 minute walk) to the smaller of Praiano's beaches, Gavitella, which is fantastic. If like us, you're foregoing the car to explore the coast, the SITA bus stops right in front. (Hotel does offer parking to guests, and since there's virtually nowhere to park in this region, it could be useful to leave a car at the hotel and then use bus/cabs to get around the coast.)
Price was at the high end of where we usually stay, but in relative terms it's quite fair, a bargain even. We've paid more for much less.
