My husband and I recently stayed at the Scarpariello. The location and views can't be beat. The sea is litterally at your doorstep. It is in a muxh quieter location than Positano or Amafi, but is within easy access of restaurants if you are willing to stroll. The staff was great--really really friendly and accomodating. Dominic is a true gem...he and Paul both can offer super recommendations on things to do, places to see and eat. As other reviewers have noted, the rooms are adaquate--ours was very large, with ample hot water, a fridge, all the basic ammenities. The bed was not the most comfortable, the linens ok, the furniture so-so--this is not a five star luxury hotel but that is reflected in the price. But we felt more than comfortable and honestly didnt spend that much time indoors. The grounds are lovely and you can choose to swim in the pool or the sea. The breakfast was basic but tasty. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. And to those complaining about all the stairs...its the Amalfi Coast. What did you expect?? You'll leave with a better tush than when you arrived.
