Travelers' Choice
The Superior four-star Hotel is a romantic villa "fin de siecle" made up of 49 rooms, whose restoration is constantly in balance between the respect for the past and the influence of contemporary style.A unique and authentic place made ​​of beautiful old trees and surrounded by green surfaces, that admires the spectacular Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.On one hand, the common areas, characterized by an unmistakable style and a wonderful elegance, which completely respect the important classical style of the structure; on the other hand, the rooms, a continuous alternation of contemporary and classical Design.A Hotel, on its own, marked by a deeply individual style where the care for details, quality and hospitality represents the common denominator.The ceramics of Amalfi Coast hand-painted with an exclusive design, the antique furniture and tapestries characterize the lobby, the bar and the restaurant situated on the ground floor of the hotel; so quiet places, that make possible living in a private and protected dimension... Where each detail becomes a pleasure to be relished. The huge glass windows in Liberty Style divide the building from the secular park: an explosion of flowers and colours, a wide open-air sitting-room completely equipped with chaise-longue, easy-chairs and gazebos; an unforgettable atmosphere beyond every expectation.Around the park full of flowers, the outside Fitness Corner represents an opportunity to keep oneself fit in an uncontaminated and healthy environment; the wellness swimming-pool with geysers, the sun beds, the large solarium represent an occasion of certain and pleasant relax. From here just a step to get to the Pool Bar for an aperitif, and another for sipping a vintage wine at the outside restaurant Il Gazebo & Le Terrazze in the middle of the citrus grove.Here the Chef suggests a refined, precious Mediterranean and International cuisine, a perfect balance among tastes, smells and colours.Excellent services like a Mercedes shuttle bus to the city centre or the close beaches, the free parking, the opportunity to rent a yacht or book private excursions and much more... Will make your stay unforgettable.

The staff were very helpful and the hotel was fabulous - comfortable and well appointed. The grounds were beautiful, the pool was lovely and the breakfast was delicious! I highly recommend starting at least a couple of days so you can enjoy both the area and the amenities of the hotel itself.

Hotel's Favorite
I'm a senior executive in my mid 50s and travel a LOT. That means I have the opportunity to stay in some of the nicest hotels in the world and often arriving by company private plane. I say this to give some points of comparison when i say that this hotel provided one of the nices holiday vacation experiences we've ever had as a family. The customer service, food and hotel grounds were superb. we stayed in 2019, before the Pandemic but the memory has stayed fresh. Frankly I've waited to do this review as I wanted to do it 'well'. We were there in June and our arrival would coincide with my wife's birthday. Knowing that I wanted some flowers for her, I contacted the hotel to see if they could provide flowers. They immediately responded with some recommendations of local companies and given my poor Italian, they offered to negotiate and arrange for something beautful. When given the price, I was somewhat hesitant (as it seemed low) but they assured me that it would be lovely. You can see that it WAS a wonderful bouquet. We very much enjoyed the grounds (at some point it must have been an ancient citrus orchard) and the great food. After our first meal, we decided to take the majority of our meals at the hotels (in hindsight, I wish we had dined there more) At short notice we decided to hire a guide and hike to the high mountains behind the hotel. Having no time to arrange for food, I asked whether they might have packed lunches available. They did not have any 'menu' but immediately offered to have 'something' put together for us for the morning at breakfast. Breakfast arrived and we were presented with BEAUTIFUL boxed lunches of sandwiches, chips, snacks and bottles of water. They even were thoughtful enough to provide a box for the guide! As a third and final example of this hotels efforts to go above and beyond, the catering manager approached me and asked to confirm my wife's actual birthday and whether I would mind if he brought a little 'cake' out when we dined that evening.....Sure!! I was expecting a cupcake and a candle and instead we were presented with a most amazing confection; handmade in the kitchen with ingredients and dessert pieces my wife had expressed a preference for to the wait staff on previous evenings. My wife was in LOVE :-) I am very hesitant to recommend ANY hotel, or it's staff but in this case........ This isn't a hotel with staff. This felt like an exquisite HOME and time spent with FAMILY Go enjoy it!!!

The location of this hotel feels off the beaten track as a tourist but very accessible to Pompeii and Castellammare di Stabia by car. Great that the parking is free too but reception like to keep your keys behind there. Reception staff are very happy and helpful. Nice to be shown to your room personally. The grounds of the hotel are stunning so it’s obvious why people get married here. Lovely pool but there was no one to give us towels one hour before closing. Breakfast views are stunning! I could have sat there all morning, so I was gutted we had to rush for our flight. The older (English speaking) waiter in there was very helpful and got my coffee pot and hot soya speedily. Like that they have a selection of milks, fruits, cold cuts, sweets and scrambled eggs (despite saying continental breakfast only for the buffet). The pancakes were funny they looked like cut out cakes! The room was nice and clean. Eco slippers were a nice touch and bathroom with Etro toiletries. The bath foam (shower gel)had not been filled so my partner requested that. Also there was no coffee sachets in the room and the creamers were dusty so had to ask reception for them to be filled. Another annoying thing is they have no irons/ironing boards instead they have an ironing service which is available 7am-7pm which we missed. The dinner restaurant Donn’Eugenia was a mixed experience so I have reviewed separately. Overall the stay was good, just some details overlooked.

We stayed in this beautiful hotel for four nights to celebrate a family wedding, and we were truly sorry to say goodbye and leave. From our first impression of arriving at the hotel to the very last moment, we felt that this was a very special place. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and a credit to the team of gardeners; our room was spacious with a beautiful view and was kept spotlessly clean by our chambermaid (very sorry that we didn’t know her name); Reception staff were so very helpful at all times responding with a smile and patience at our every request, so thank you Achille, Erminia and those whose names we didn’t get; Silvano is a national treasure, always smiling and attentive and we bless him for picking us up so late at night one time – still with a smile; Gennaro, Milena and the hospitality/catering team do an amazing job (I wish I could name them all) – the wedding meal was just incredible not just for the food itself which was superb (and, sadly, we didn’t get to meet the very skilled and talented chefs!) but also cooking specially for the baby who was seated at our table! The decorations and flowers all around were just magnificent and created the most picturesque setting. Nothing could have been bettered, all the guests agreed. Francesco, you looked after us all wonderfully and when you said nothing was too much trouble, we know you meant it, and thank you. We would like to hope that we will return before too long and spend time once again at La Medusa.

Would highly recommend this hotel. Everyone very helpful and could not do enough for you. Anything you needed they would accommodate. Silvano the shuttle bus driver took us anywhere and even helped get us to the best local fish restaurant. We had the most amazing holiday.

We stayed at La Medusa for 6 nights recently and had a wonderful experience. In particular we found the staff to all be particularly friendly and helpful. The food and drink service was amazing and delicious and they hosted a beautiful dinner for us and the other guests over the Italian Ferragosto holiday. The gardens and hotel were absolutely beautiful.

Had a wonderful two days at the Medusa with my family. A well deserved rest after 12 days touring Italy. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The hotel has a wonderful relaxed feel. The pool area was very lovely and no stress about getting sunloungers like we had experienced elsewhere. The staff were conscientious and polite at all times. We stayed half board. The only slight negative I had about this was in the restaurant (which is lovely) we were given menus. If I hadn’t mentioned we were half board we could have ended up with a hefty bill. The menus were whisked away and alternative menu provided. We did feel abit like second rate citizens to be honest. On the second night the same happened. In addition to this despite giving the half board menu with four courses (traditional in Italy) you should only choose three. This was not explained to us in advance and was a little awkward. My daughter and I had a treatment in the Spa which was nice but not really worth the price tag. The lady that runs the spa was a little abrupt and only gave the treatment she wanted to give, not the one you wanted. If staying again, I wouldn’t bother with the Spa. It’s a shame that use of the spa is not available free of charge to guests. You have to pay €38 each to use the facilities.

After being in Italy multiple times this is by far my favourite hotel I have stayed in, on the first arrival the reception staff were exceptionally helpful & friendly, my sister has a dairy allergy and from the moment we checked in she was catered to the highest level, with a non-dairy replacement for every meal. Antonio is a fantastic Mixologist and general bar tender that not only served fantastic drinks but also put a smile on my whole family's faces. All the staff at this hotel are extremely helpful and caring. The restaurant manager, Genarro was honestly a delight, perfectly recommending wine for every meal that was not only beautiful but at a reasonable price. On our final night, Genarro had the Chefs make me the most amazing amatriciana and my sister a fantastic arrabiata (both dishes were not on the menu). To Summarise this hotel is truly beautiful and I cannot recommend it higher, Furthermore, I will make sure to return.

From the moment you arrive you will feel impressed by the amazing entrance to the detail in the architecture and welcome. When you get out of the car you are welcomed immediately by Silvano. Herminia at check in will explain and help with any details. When you go to breakfast and dinner you will be seated by Genarro who is in charge of all the staff at dinner and breakfast. The bar man Antonio makes the best drinks ever, obviously the Aperol is a must but the Moscow mule was awesome. The towels, sheets the all around service is more than any 5 star hotel we have been to. The grounds the pool the spa is unbelievable, a must stay off the Amalfi Coast.
