“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

It's very hard to describe this beautiful hotel to truly justify its elegance! If you are looking for a warm and peaceful retreat set in a magical location then it's a must!

Yes it's on the top end of most people's budget but you get what you pay for and this hotel is no exception. We stayed in the Superior double room with sea view and although some would say its on the small side we found it cosy and delightful. The bathroom was lovely with huge tub that looked over fab views of the sea and cliffs. The rooms come with all the mod cons, no adapters needed as uk,us and eu sockets are fixed and an I phone speaker charger! Beautiful bath salts and fresh lavender in your wardrobes, beds turned down with freshly made cookies and fresh water each night all make for wonderful finishing touches even the box of local pasta was a lovely good bye!

The staff are so friendly and accommodating and the free on demand shuttle into Almalfi is great as I wouldn't recommend walking on the bendy roads!

We treated ourselves to the couples spa day which was just the best, we were pampered from head to toe. A lovely light lunch was brought down to us to enjoy which in its self was great the asparagus soup was so tasty and the veal salad was the best! This was all on the private terrace, this was a day we will never forget.

Although the monastero is very big it is very quite with only 20 rooms we felt like the only people there yet it was full, I guess. This is another reason why it's so special.

We will defiantly visit the Santa Rosa again!

Wow what a place! Hotel is new, yet you feel the history of the Monastary. Layout was done with exquisite taste. The service was exceptional. The views were incredible. Food was excellent. Spa is great and free to use. Pool is one of a kind amazing, and best part is that there are barely any other people present. This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in and I'm a very picky traveler. It's worth every penny and more.
We originally wanted to stay in Positano, but I'm soo glad we did not. I had headaches after visiting Positano..way too crowded to enjoy! This location is perfect. Qiuet, private. It's in between all the towns you would want to visit, such as Amalfi, Ravello, Positano. Driving takes time where ever you go because there is only one road to all the towns and it's very narrow.
I highly recommend renting a boat for all day up until late evening to visit Capri. The concierge at the hotel arranged it for us. We were brought to town of Amalfi where the boat was waiting. On the way, the skipper took us to different swimming spots, grottos and my favorite restaurant/beach club La Conca Del Sogno, which is only reachable by boat.

Room Tip: standard rooms run a little small but are still comfortable

very nice hotel but far away from the sea and it is difficult to reach the cities of the coast amalfitana.i gardens of the hotel are beautiful, the rooms are not very large for the price paid.The restaurant only has gourmet choices, some more traditional alternatives would have been nice.Not enough information in room about hotel facilities. Room small for the price.

Dear Sir/Madam,

We wish to thank you for your review and for your suggestions concerning the restaurant menu. These will surely help us to meet more so our Guests preferred choices. With reference to the size of the rooms it must be said that the Monastero Santa Rosa is, as the name suggests, a 17th century monastery converted into a hotel. The interior spaces reflect the original architecture and rooms have been restored from which would have been the Nun’s cells. Furthermore during the booking process measures of the rooms are posted on our website as well as on all the various sales channels.
Monastero Santa Rosa is a 10 minute drive from the center of Amalfi and its beaches, due to guests requirements, we have now extended our free shuttle service from 8am to 12pm.
We hope in our reply we demonstrate that it is our intention to continuously improve our services and that guest satisfaction is our priority.

We thank you once again for your valued comments and can assure that these will be taken into consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Pompeo Amendola
Front Office Manager

If God had the time and money this is what he'd do. Spa is all brand new and smells amazing. All around a pretty special experience and unlike any chain luxury hotel - so much better. View you'll never forget.

Room Tip: All are unique from what ive seen (asked manager for a tour) but Citrus room will blow you away

Its taken a while to write our review since our incredible and life-changing visit to this unbelievable and stunning hotel back in June. When I booked our stay I didn't know at the time that the hotel hadn't even opened then. But 2 weeks before our visit, the doors opened to welcome Prince Albert. We were equally welcomed as royalty, from the moment of arrival to our first introduction to our stunning room/suite. Guess what romance was in the air and it was only 4 hours later where I was compelled to propose to my beautiful lady. The infectious romance of our mangers Bellinis, to the fireworks which erupted following the historic boat race, the waiter offering my lady a pashmina when the temperature dipped whilst eating our dinner, the size of the decanter into which our wine was lovingly introduced by the sommelier - the insistence of the poolside staff that we shouldn't move our own sunbed (more like a very comfortable shaded double bed), as they would do our every bidding. The chef will very soon be awarded at least one but probably three Michelin stars.....shall I go on? What an amazing start to our life's adventure together. We will be returning of course. Thank you to all of the amazing staff for making every second so unforgettable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude, Monastero Santa Rosa allows guests to determine the tone of their stay, whether they're looking to disappear for an intimate getaway or gather with the group and make new acquaintances. It's hard to imagine that the generous grounds, filled with four levels of gardens, lush landscaping, plentiful lounge chairs, and canopied daybeds, serve just 20 rooms and suites. Where most boutique properties might only offer in-room massages, Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa to rival any major city spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium. Guests are welcome to feel a part of the scene at the library and bar. Engage in a game of chess or cards or read while sipping a martini in the modern cocktail area. Relax down by the pool or discover the resort's secret gardens, quiet sun decks, and indoor relaxation areas. Get the best of both worlds by making your stay as energizing or relaxed as you wish, by selecting different spaces to suit your mood at any time. ... more   less
