The Palazzo Sasso is one of the finest hotels I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Words cannot describe the view or the beauty of the hotel itself. The hotel is an old palazzo perched over 1,000 feet above the sea. The grounds and hotel itself are gorgeous. It's location is ideal- a short 3 min walk to the center square yet far enough away from the daily crowds (which are small for the Amalfi Coast). The service was very good (although not as good as our stay at the Sirenuse in Positano). The private beach club is magnificent. The decor is a bit modern yet classy and respectful of tradition. The spa is wonderful. You can use the steam room and sauna for free during your stay. I could go on for days about this hotel. Really fantastic. I would highly, highly recommend.
The rooms are a bit small but comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful. The fittings and faucets were gorgeous. They provide bvlgari soap, shampoo and body wash which are not sold anywhere in the world. I would suggest stocking up while there!
We also looked at the Caruso which is another beautiful hotel. The hotels are right next to each other. The grounds of the Caruso cannot be beat. Also the food was better at the Caruso (best pizza of our vacation). The scene was a bit more traditional and quieter at the Caruso while it was lively at the Sasso. You cannot go wrong with either; however, for the price I think the Sasso is a better bet.
