“Generally excellent but a few key flaws”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

I found this to be a very beautiful and comfortable hotel. However when the bathroom has no toiletries and the hairdrier automatically switches off after a couple of minutes due to overheating this is not acceptable. In addition no ironing is allowed in rooms and guests must pay a huge fee to have clothes ironed by someone else. I live in Italy and have travelled extensively in Italy and Sicily and have never had any problem using an iron from the Hotel!!!!

The restaurant, although rather expensive is very good and I cannot fault the food or service. However it is rare to be asked if you want coffee after a meal and I discovered this is available in the bar if required but only by talking to the excellent barman Stefano.

This hotel could be 5 star but a little less complacency is required by the owners, who might gain a lot from listening to staff with experience beyond this hotel! In general I would recommend it. I also agree with comments on noise between floors, I slept very badly on Christmas eve owing to noise from above and in the adjoining room.

Room Tip: Sea views are wonderful

This hotel has the restaurant in the top floor above the bedrooms, so you never can rest in your room before midnight and after 6 am you will be wake up with the noise that comes from the restaurant with the employers arranging the tables and chairs.

They use no carpets and they promote the use of ceramics ground, which is terrible to propagate the noise across the floors. So you are always listening the women with their high heels and tables and chairs dragging on the floor.

In my last night, on Friday, it was 12:30 pm and there were still customers in the restaurant making a lot of noise and also the employers arranging the room. I had to go to the hotel’s reception to ask to stop that noise and just after they sent people away.

So, if you do not like to rest this is your perfect hotel. If you want to lay in your bed early you will be accompanied by the noise of the dinner and if you like to lay later you will be waked up by the noise of the breakfast.

Room Tip: It is not possible. You will have noise everywhere

I just don't know enough complimentary words to say about this hotel and the very helpful and friendly staff: especially so was Ana at reception. The spectacular setting of the hotel looking out into the mediterrean, the rooms deliciously comfortable and beautifully decorated including twinkleing "stars" in the ceiling and highly figured ceramic tile floors, the bath exotically right out of a Roman villa,the dazzleing dining room and well prepared meals together with imcomparable service, the bar and the terrace extratradinary in every sense....and did I mention the smashingly beautiful ceramic tile floors through-out or the marvelous ceramic jardinaras at every turn. All that is just the beginning. You must see for yourself to believe.

Room Tip: Reception will do a good job of that.

In all this hotel you can feel chic. Here the chic look of the hotel, great breakfast, private beach with a lift. Everything is very good. But the visitors realize that the peak of its posh hotel has already lived. I wish the hotel and staff to maintain that level as long as possible. The hotel is good point of start for Amalfi coast trip. Or good point of finish.

The furnishings were in need of an update, but it was clean and that is what counts to me. I do think some of the rooms have been updated.
The main problem was our room opened up to cargo ships. View wasn't WOW. Since we were not planning on being in the room during the day we were not to concerned. However, guess when they load those barges...at night. So when we were settling down for a nights sleep the noise would also start. We were on a tour, if we were on our own we would have ask for a room on the side of the sea. The staff was friendly, the location is great. We would walk into Vietri Sup Mare and have dinner on our free nights. The town square is right up the incline and all the locals go there in the evening and visit. Little shops line the street, Mom and Pop grocery stores and pottery shops etc.....I loved Vietri. I would stay at Lloyds again, just not on the cargo ship side.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room that does not open up to the ship yards.

Its geographical position provides a wonderful view of Salerno. The room was large, well furnished, with two balconies and very comfortable. Free parking and internet conection. Big bathroom. Breakfast was very good. We were treated with hospitality. There are a lot of external spaces to enjoy the sea view.
