“Beautiful hotel + delicious food + friendly staff = perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

The garden around the hotel is incredible. Eating lunch underneath the lemon trees (which also keep the veranda cooler during the day) is a treat. The food is delicious and good value, too. A testament to the quality is the fact that the locals often have their functions in the hotel restaurant.
The rooms are very thoughtfully furnished: there will be a hook for every towel and a shelf for everything you could possibly bring. Staying in that room is like living in your own house.
The staff cannot be praised enough. They are friendly, helpful, resourceful and go out of their way to accommodate you. Whether you need tickets booked, or transport researched (the bus company goes on strike often) or if you arrive at the restaurant after the kitchen is closed, they will help you!

We got to Locanda Costa Diva on the first day of a 10 day trip to Italy. At first our driver had a hard time finding it - but there it was - just like the pictures on the internet! It was just as advertised - a small, welcoming hotel with a wonderful staff, lovely rooms and a fabulous location. The gardens and the lemon grove were beautiful. Even though it was our first day - we took the long trip down the stairs to the ocean. At first, the old people ( my husband and me) weren't sure if we would make it all the way down (and back up!). But we perservered - and it was worth trip. Imagine an incredibly, cold beautiful swim in the sea right off the incredible cliffs of the Amalfi Coast! Then, as planned we had dinner al fresco that night. Food was fabulous and staff was great. In fact, we ended up eating there both nights of our stay. Thanks to Niccola and Fillip (sp.?) for taking such great care of us at dinner and breakfast. I can't recommend this stay more highly - very reasonable and spectacularly beautiful.

Room Tip: We asked for rooms with the terrace and got them and loved thm.

We held our wedding reception here and it was everything we had hoped for. It was an easy choice to chose the Costa Diva! We come to the area every year and visited the owner a year ago to see what they could do for us. Everything we suggested they were pleased to do and offered advice on other things that we might like, for example a trio of musicians playing Neapolitan music - they were fab and got everyone dancing! We loved the whole hotel, the gardens are really nice and you walk through the lemon grove to the restaurant, which looks particularly lovely when it is lit by candles in the evenings.

We had about 75 guests and they all loved it. The restaurant is outdoors (with a veranda to keep the rain out) and looks out onto the sea and gardens below. The food was very yummy and there was lots of it! We had a buffet and drinks to begin with, followed by a pasta course, fish course (a couple of our guests do not eat fish and they were happy to provide them with an alternative meal), pudding number one and then a plate of 5 small cakes, including the wedding cake, which was yummy. We showed them a picture of what we wanted and they made a lovely cake for us, which was included in the price, along with all of the food and drink.

We were allowed to set up the restaurant exactly how we wanted it, they provided chair covers and even decorated the tables and set up the seating plan etc for us. The head water was fantastic.

The staff here were great, very welcoming and would do anything for us. They even gave us a room for our wedding night. It was a lovely room at the bottom of the gardens, with its own terrace and jacuzzi.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone! Lovely rooms, lovely gardens, great food and fantastic staff!

My husband and I stayed in the Rafaela suite for a few days. The view from our suite and hotel was beautiful. The suite is very private and away from the rest of the rooms, perfect for an anniversary. The hot tub, however, is below the room....down a long flight of stairs and no lighting. Food and service was great.

There are MANY steep and unleveled stairs, not just at the hotel but all over the coast. No handicaps here.

Room Tip: Look on website and ask specific questions!!

We spent five nights at Locanda Costa Diva and loved it!
The room was very clean (thanks to the very nice cleaning lady!) and quiet, the bed was comfortable and the view over the sea from our terrace was really fantastic...

Normally on holiday we eat at different places nearly every evening, but here we ate five evenings in their beautiful dining room. The food was always good, fresh and varied and the service was impeccable.

Il piatto speciale di pesce (con balsamico) era squisitissimo grazie al consigllio del squisito e gentillissimo papa!!!

We made beautiful walks in the environment (especially Sentiero degli Dei). We can fully recommend this address!

Excellent Services! I had kidney colic (cólica de rins) and they prepare special menu to me.
I travelled with other 20 people and they server us marvellous! The staff was kind and helpful
It is a new loading with very good facilities (family business). The rooms were clean, comfortable and it has a wonderful view to the Tyrrhenian See through each terrace/balcony.
It is situated between Positano and Amalfi cities (marvellous!), with easy transportation and only 2 hours far from Isle of Capri.
I love the view and the staff, and it has so much stairs (Of course, it is "Costiera Amalfitana!)

Our stay at Locanda Costa Diva was incredible! The hotel was quaint but the view was spectacular. The lemons that were hanging throughout the hotel were unbelievable. I have never seen scenery like that in America. The Mediterranean view took our breath away. Thank you to the amazing staff at the hotel for making this one of our best trips ever!!! We took a boat down the Amalfi Coast which was FABULOUS!!
