We recently returned from 4 days on the Amalfi Coast staying at Hotel Fico d'India. After a nightmare getting out of Napoli airport we climbed up over the mountain to the absolutely breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast. Winding our way down the hillside the turn off to the hotel is clearly signposted and you are going so slow on those crazy roads you wouldn't miss it. When we arrived we sat in the sun and had an amazing espresso which was only the start. The room was massive and clean with two lovely terrace doors. But the highlight was definitely the restaurant. We never and I mean never eat at hotels, we also like to explore but the food was SO good, Pino is the perfect host and recommends the loveliest food. We ate there all 4 nights and one lunchtime!!! We had a few lunches out and the quality and attention was not the same as Pino's, he spoils you! The complimentary Limoncello and the angel cake are delicious. All of the other guests ate dinner there also. On the topic of food the breakfast is also lovely, these massive freshly baked croissants filled with chocolate..they feel so decadent to eat for breakfast but when in Rome...!
The driving does take a long time to get used to, but I think it is the best way to get around. The Sita buses seemed very frequent (we frequently met them on tight bends!) and well used by everyone. I would recommend Posiatano, which is a beautiful town just park out of the town on the coastal road and walk back in. It's generally easy to park if you are willing to pay €3 or so an hour.
Thank you SO much Pino and family for an amazing stay, you have spoilt us but you made the holiday perfect! We would recommend Fico'India a thousand times!!!
