We had just spent three nights in Positano at Le Sirenuse so we had high expectations coming in. It is a short 40-minute drive between the two cities, and I must say it was fabulous splitting our time between the two. It was a great way to experience the Amalfi Coast. Palazzo Sasso is stunning and perfect. It was the absolute best next stop on our European adventure. We arrived to check-in early, but they had our room available. From the moment we arrived, service was exceptional. The view from this hotel is breathtaking and the hotel grounds are bright and well manicured.
We spent our days in the spa, laying by the pool, and checking out Ravello. We also loved the hotel beach club, Sasso by the Sea. It was nice to take a dip in the Mediterranean when staying up in the mountains. We also enjoyed a bottle of champagne in the rooftop jacuzzi looking down at the Mediterranean.
We had a wonderful meal at the hotel restaurant, but preferred to go into town to the more casual restaurants. Breakfast was wonderful each morning!! The hotel recommended Cumpa Cosimo in town and it was the best meal we had in Italy. We even went back another night.
You must book this hotel and see Ravello. I only have positive things to say about the two. The hotel is one of a kind that aims to pamper you. It is very laid back and romantic.
