Don’t get me wrong; this is a very nice hotel, just not my cup of tea. It’s old school, but well maintained and done in a style that mostly remind me of the clubhouse at a golf club in Florida. But if that is your thing then this is probably heaven. The cool factor though is non-excising. Check-in was odd,... More

Dear HKexpat88, Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad to know you liked our hotel, even if its style was not really up to your taste. Cala di Volpe is world-renowned for the design created in 1962 by Jacques Couëlle: a perfect fusion between landscape and architecture that perfectly represents Costa Smeralda’s iconic style.

You'd think that if you shell out a lot of money per night you must be in for a treat. Wrong! Not here at least. My wife and I are in our early 30s and we checked into the hotel by someone who seemed to despise his job. The concierge is pretty pathetic and they do not want to assist.... More

Traveled with friends on a 10 day Amalfi coast vacation. This was the first stop and a great hotel to start our vacation. Beautiful grounds and attentive staff. Our rooms were very nice and spacious.

We loved our stay at the hotel. The staff at reception were great and went out of their way to allow us a late check out.

We only spent two nights at Cala di Volpe before being transfered to another SPG property. Check-in process was a bit chaotic. A cramped desk, the check-in attendant that handles us starts talking to someone else and then leaves to be replaced by another employee.

We had dinner at this hotel and was very disappointed in the service. All of the wait staff were disorganized, but the food eventually arrived and was impressive.
