This is a lovely hotel with the most accommodating staff. We spoke no Italian and got along fine. Every staff member we came into contact with was extremely friendly and helpful. The bathroom had beautiful tile work (pictures don’t do it justice!). Although the rooms were fairly plain looking, each day we returned to a spotlessly clean room. We loved sitting out on our room balcony in the evenings overlooking the charming town. The view from the veranda off the top floor was unbelievably beautiful with pretty much a 360 degree view of Minori.
We were full board guests so our accommodations included breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant provided a daily buffet breakfast that included hot items as well as cereals, breads, pastries, fruit, coffee and juices. The dinners at the restaurant were delicious, so much so that we never felt the need to go find dinner anywhere else the whole week we were there although there were several restaurants within walking distance. The food provided was abundant as we left over-stuffed every evening. The service in the restaurant was fabulous, absolutely the best ever. Each night a cooking demonstration was done showing us how they made a particular item on the dessert menu, and on our last night they presented us with all the recipes they'd demonstrated while we were there! Adding a bottle of wine to dinner ran 10-14 Euros and they would put your room number on it and save it for the next night if you didn't finish it.
The desk staff was so helpful in telling us about available tours and even made the arrangements for us by calling the various tour companies. We got picked up within a block of the hotel by the tour buses. This hotel location is centrally located for seeing all parts of the Amalfi Coast with tours to Naples, Mt Vesuvius, Pompei, Ercolano/Herculaneum, Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello, etc. They even offered an all day tour to Rome that left early in the morning and returned about 10:30 PM.
From the hotel it was a short walk to the beach with all its sidewalk cafes, and pretty much a park setting with fountains, trees and benches. The townspeople hung out there every evening with their families and dogs.
Charming is the best one word description I have of this hotel, this town, and the atmosphere. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and definitely plan on returning.
