We stayed here for a few days in early september and were very impressed. The setting of the hotel is incredible, with the various elements sitting organically within the steep coastal location. The nautical theme to the architectural detailing and interior decoration is carried through well and views from bedrooms are such that you feel like you are out on a boat at sea. There are a wide variety of balconies and terraces to sit on and it is all very relaxing. The rooms are large and comfortable. There is a high ratio of staff to guests and they are very helpful (particular thanks to the blokes who drove us into town in the shuttle bus). Breakfast was excellent. We did not have dinner at the hotel as we wanted to have some variety (Pizza a Metro, in Vico Equense, is incredible value and well worth heading to). We were given complimentary access to the spa, which was great (I would recommend making this access as standard for hotel customers in the future). The outdoor gym was a novel feature and all together there is enough to keep you occupied in the hotel for several days. We checked out on time, but some other guests we spoke to who asked about leaving later were told this would not be possible (i.e. don't necessarily believe the text on the Mr and Mrs Smith website about late check outs). Not cheap, but highly recommended.
