All previous reviews have stated that Claudio and his family are wonderful people, and we couldn’t agree more. For instance, I told him we were planning to leave our car in a costly parking garage in Amalfi when we were going to Capri for three days, and he wouldn’t hear of it, instead he told us to leave the car at his place and he would drive us to the ferry. This was of course both very kind and most convenient for us.
That being said, we do feel a need to warn against staying at this B&B, because it is not maintained properly. Someone (probably Claudio) did a LOT of work her many decades ago, but since then little has been done. Mold is growing between the shower tiles, the bed spread is old and dirty, the toilet seat is loose, the garden seems left to itself, the beach area equipment is old and worn.
In the evening while going to bed we couldn’t find a remote for the air conditioner, so we kept the doors open and shutters closed instead. This was a big mistake, as the about 70 mosquito stings on both my wife and myself can witness. One of those plug-in mosquito repellents were in the room, but no spare blue tablets, and we suspect the maid had forgotten to change it, so we just kept using an old one, with little or no effect it would turn out. We later learned new ones are blue and turn white when they need to be changed; ours were never blue. At breakfast Claudio showed my wife how to relieve the itching by rubbing sea-salt on the stings. This actually worked for a while, but she still looked like she suffered from some kind of serious disease, with red swollen dots all over her (she reacts very strongly and instantly to mosquito stings, whereas mine showed up – and started itching – only several days later) Late the following evening they got us the remote for the air conditioner that should have been there from the start. It had flat batteries, so still no air conditioner and we ended up sleeping with the doors closed.
With a bit of work and attention to detail B&B da Claudio could become a dream place to stay, but as it is now we would have to advise against staying here. It is sad, because the family is so nice, and the place is so wonderful in itself; it deserves being looked after.
