“Can't beat the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Ravello is a getaway from the hustle/bustle touristy sections of the Amalfi Coast. It is smaller, quieter, cleaner, and has a romantic feel throughout the small city. Hotel Caruso was the perfect choice for a relaxing end to our honeymoon. It's a bit older and historic-feeling, but a clean and impeccably-landscaped property.

First - and most obvious - is the infinity pool view. We spent many hours lounging by the pool, taking in the incredible scenery. Second, the pizza at the pool "snack bar" was the best we had in Ravello - the food in general was great! Last, the room we got was amazing. It was like an entire apartment, with a private patio area and garden, lounge chairs,a big jacuzzi tub, big mini bar. Our first night the staff laid rose petals down and votive candles everywhere, creating a perfect atmosphere.

Highly recommend!

This hotel is the definition of 5 star service. Incredibly gorgeous property, spacious rooms, and delicious food and wine. This is where you must stay! The infinity pool is gorgeous, and the bar patio next to it is just divine to relax at. We were sad to leave!

There are a few magnificent hotels on the Amalfi coast, and my husband and I just spent 6 nights at the Hotel Caruso and are so glad we chose to stay there. Our room was clean and spacious with a lovely bathroom, and the setting of the hotel is truly spectacular. The food was delicious, offering both complex preparations and simple and fresh preparations. We loved being in a quiet place with the busier towns of Amalfi and Positano within reach when we felt like being there. Best of all are the people who work at the Caruso. Concierges Mauritzio and Gennaro make every wish come true. Marco and Roberta at the pool made me feel like we were staying with family (in a good way!). Yolanda, Tommaso, the gentlemen at the Belvedere and the other restaurant made our experience extra special. Even the drivers employed by the hotel were fabulous. One of the most welcoming experiences I've ever had, worth the price paid.

This is the most special hotel I have ever stayed at. Firstly, the room was enormous with beautiful high ceilings. The grounds are amazing with many layers including lemon trees and herb gardens. There can't be anywhere else in Europe with such a view. The infinity pool is glorious. It goes without saying that everything is ludicrously expensive but its all worth it. I can recommend the pool restaurant where the food is excellent. I have reviewed the main restaurant separately. The staff in the hotel are completely amazing. If you go to the pool restaurant or hotel bar you will without doubt meet Dani the high energy head waiter. By the time you leave he will be like a brother. Also you will see the excellent guest relations manager called Yolanda who is constantly walking around ensuring all is well. The most impressive thing is that apart from the first check in at no point did anyone ask our room number and every member of staff greated you by name. The Avino is the only place that comes close. Its probably more slick but does not have the same charm. I have never been so sad to leave anywhere.

Having stayed at many wonderful hotels throughout the world, we consider that his hotel, with its impeccable service, unbelievable views and fantastic infinity pool (at just the right temperature) make it, in our view, second to none. The service was impeccable but unobtrusive, the attention to detail amazing and the food absolutely mouth-watering. Everything about the hotel far surpassed our expectations and it is certainly a hotel to which we will return.

We travelled to Ravello with our daughter (14) and one gripe we had was that we could not accommodate her in our room (even in a suite) and were forced to book two rooms for the three of us which made the cost significantly more. Other hotels do not seem to have this policy. Having travelled to other hotels and restaurants in the region, the other comment we would make is that the wine list seemed to be overly inflated (the same wine costing half the price in restaurants in Positano, for example) which, when the price for staying at the hotel is not cheap, seems a little over the top. That said, it did not detract from a fabulous stay and one we are eager to repeat.

Room Tip: We opted for a view of the mountains which was cheaper than a sea view but every bit as good (you se...

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.
