We just returned from a long weekend at the Hotel Caruso for a friends wedding. Having stayed ay some of the finest hotels in the world, i think this hotel is pretty much up there with some of the best. It is very understated in virtually everything but everything comes together perfectly. The staff are attentive without being over attentive, the views are excellent, food is great, the rooms are large and tastefully decorated. Whilst this is not a modern hotel, it isn't overly stuffy but perfectly refined. There is nothing on the outside to suggest that this is a special hotel but step through the doors and walk inside and it becomes obvious.
The infinity pool is quite something but it isn't as big as the pictures would suggest but what a view from the pool. The wedding party was faultless. Ravello is a charming town away from the hustle and bustle of Amalfi and the jewel of Ravello is the Caruso. My only gripes about the hotel was that the curtains in the room were a throwback to another time as is the TV but i really am being critical. If you come to the Amalfi coast then there is only one place to stay at and thats the Caruso.
