“Wonderful view and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This family run hotel in the beautiful town of Ravello has been in the same family for decades and the care and love they bestow on the site, the grounds, and the guests is apparent. There is a sense of pride and professionalism. The staff are fantastic, language is not an issue and one could not fault their attention. The rooms were large; ours opened onto a deck with its own spa (we shared with other adjacent rooms) overlooking the mountains and sea. The views both over the sea and inland to the mountains are spectacular. The bathroom was large and the jacuzzi shower a real treat. Beds and pillows were first class ensuring a fine sleep, rooms were very quiet. The restaurant was excellent and the night we were there (Thursday) had live music, a fine treat. Wi-Fi is available to guests. Ravello is a lovely historic town and the Hotel Bonadies is a great place to base yourself as you explore the local sites, historic areas, and shops.

When I asked to see the menu he receptionist was very pleasant and very helpful. We had a table on the terrace with the most incredible views. The waiter was charming and he advised us on what to eat.We had the cannelloni and the gnocchi which were gorgeous. We had one filet steak with gorgonzola which was the nicest steak I have ever had. We had half a litre of house white an the one glass of the red to go with steak. When we left I said to the waiter that the red was lovely and where could I buy a bottle. He said it was their wine and you couldn't buy it. As we were leaving he called me back and gave me a bottle of the red and said to think of them when we drank it. We have eaten many meals in Italy but his was one of the best.

This is the second time in five years we have stayed at this hotel. I have graded it as excellent not on the basis of it being five star but on the qualities they deliver. Value for money, entirely run by the family, the owner, his daughters and this year his grandsons! Nothing ever seems too much trouble for example on our early departure one of the family was up making us coffee and would we like something to eat etc etc We met one couple and asked have you been here before and they said oh yes we are regulars about ten times! I think at our age now we might not be able to top this! We were there on a bed and breakfast basis but ate in the restaurant all but one night and spared no expense on food or drink at a total cost for the two of us of around 400euro. Top quality Italian Food in a stunning part of Italy long may they continue !

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool has stunning views !!

My wife and I have been travelling to Hotel Bonadies for over ten years now. We consistantly have excellent warm welcome, top class service and food to die for. They always go far beyond the call of duty to cater for us. What ever our requests every possible effort was made to make us feel relaxed. The food and drink was out of this world. Yet again an excellent stay. See you all next year.

PS. Umberto and Andrea have really followed in their Grandfathers footsteps as being very hospitable to all their guests. ourselves included.

We first visited Ravello in 2011 and experienced eating lunch in their restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed. The service is wonderful and Mr Andrea Carrano Bonadies, the owner, often assists in the hospitality and service first hand. The pool are is just unbelievable...gorgeous view and amenities...on one occasion we attended a huge party up on the rooftop. Everything was perfect from the gorgeous flowing curtains floating on the structure that was atop us to the fabulous flower arrangements and finally the long tables filled with Italian delicacies...what a gorgeous location for a wedding or any other party you might wish to host in Ravello...Later we moved to Ravello for nearly a year and continued our visits to this fabulous and historical hotel!

Our first visit to Italy was fantastic thanks to the Hotel Bonadies. The accommodations met our needs, the food gave us a perfect introduction to Italian cuisine but more importantly the staff demonstrated the spirit of the Italian people. Everyone was helpful, courtesy and went out of their way to ensure all of our needs were met. Add to all this the amazing view from our room and one cannot help but recognize the true value in this hotel on the Amalfi Coast!!
