“Presenting the AMAZING & FABULOUS Pino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

Honestly, this one of the best stays ever. Pino is just the most amazing host and I couldn't agree more that it's simply the best stay I've ever had. It was definitely like being in paradise with the views in the morning being stunning sea views and the location just perfectly situated between Amalfi & Positano.

Pino's food was fabulous with the fresh seafood best to none (oh the octopus) and pasta/lasagne spot on. The tomatoes on the first day were so good, really what you expected of Italy. Avoid the risotto though, not so good. I would also recommend that the sachets of olive oil and vinegar be replaced with bottles, a bit tacky.

The room was good and basic, no frills but works. The shower was a bit small and lots of gizmos to keep your entertained. TV had lots of channels you wouldn't watch, many didn't work.

Overall, this is the best stay I've ever had and would highly recommend. I would definitely return and I miss Pino to this day - Pino is the sort of guy who should be in hospitality for all the right reasons. Right on Pino Fantastico :)

Room Tip: Make sure you get the sea view - I think most are.

Nuestra estadia de 3 noches en Fico d’ India ha sido excelente. Todo muy bien.El comedor restaurant donde se desayuna es espectacular, y el desayuno italiano muy bueno. Como lo indican todos los que han estado en este Albergo, todo estaba muy prolijo y muy limpio. El lugar es muy bello, las vistas muy hermosas.
La Costa Malfitana muy recommendable e imperdible, los caminos muy panoramicos, a cada curva un Nuevo panorama del mar o de la Montana, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, todas maravillosas.
Pino es el anfitrion perfecto, muy amable y colaborador. Nos hizo sentir como en casa. Gracias Pino, ci vediamo la prossima volta. Recomendamos sinceramente este lugar.

Pino and his family are the loveliest people and the best hosts I've ever experienced. The hotel, with basic but comfortable amenities were paired with stunning views, like being in Paradise.

Breakfasts were pastries, yoghurt, coffee, fruit and I highly recommend eating dinner there. Pino's father is the chef and cooks up beautiful, stunning seafood and pasta dishes.

I will not consider staying anywhere else if I was in the Amalfi area.

And definitely have a car.

Its difficult to add to what all the reviews have said about this hotel, it deserves its reputation simply for the service - they really go the extra mile. One guest there asked where the bus-stop
was for Amalfi about 20 minutes away, he didn't just tell them where it was he took them all the way to their destination in his own car but this was the sort of thing they did several times every day. Whatever they could do to help they would.......
This is apart from the location and the views, the photos don't do justice to the breathtaking landscape. You can watch fishing boats, millionaires yachts, tankers, cruise ships and more travelling across the bay, or take a walk down to the bottom of the fjord where there are a few fishermans cottages and a little beach where you can swim, though its quite a climb back up the steps.
All the guests seemed so content and everybody ate at the hotel nearly every night in the restaurant. As my brother said you could easily spend a month relaxing there and taking little day trips to the many little towns and villages - including Amalfi and Positano, or some of the many breathtaking walks or boat trips to the islands of Capri or Ischia.

We spent 3 wonderful nights here, ate all 3 dinners at the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed every dinner! Thank you Pino, for the most friendly service. A genuine host who wants to make sure that his guests enjoy their Amalfi coast vacation, Pino provided valuable tips to discover the region, and always offered to drive us to the bus stop, even though it's just a 10 minute uphill walk that is no issue for active hikers.

Our spacious double room had a wonderful seaview and a balcony. Breakfast (fresh sliced fruits, joghurt, pastries, beyond usual breakfast items one gets in Italy) is served in the restaurant that has an amazing view of the sea.

All dishes we ordered for the dinners were very yummy - clams in white wine sauce with spaghetti, grilled prawns, grilled fish, home-made gnocchi, octopus, beef steak, mixed fried fish.... rounded up with a very deliciously fragrant home-made limoncello on the house.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Holidays Fico d'India was born in 2005. The beauty of the home, which was inherited from the owners grandparents, was the starting point for the new design, keeping one objective in mind: to maintain intact the Mediterranean atmosphere that has always characterized the coast while recuperating antic traditions of the Campagne region. The care of the gardens, rich with exotic plants, lemon and orange trees, shows the love that the new owners have for their property. The choice of names was not difficult. "Fico d'India" or the prickly pear cactus is a plant that characterizes the Amalfi Coast and most all of Furore. Holidays Fico d'India is positioned overhanging the Sea, along the Walloon named " Vottara " that joins the sea at " Fiordo di Furore " , just 6 km from Amalfi center and 14 km from Positano. Holidays Fico d'India permits its guests to enjoy the double image of the coast, one side is characterized with the perfumes and sounds of the wild, rocky surroundings, the other side is the tradition of the warm and friendly hospitality. ... more   less
