The views make the place, breathtaking! The old style hotel is very nice. Would be 5 star review if not for the rather stuffy, annoyed staff. Private beach is quite nice. Walk up to the little fishing village for a relaxing authentic feel of real, warm Italian people.

We had just left a horrible hotel south of Solerno "Hotel Olimpico" and raced up the Amalfi coast looking for anything. We pulled up to Hotel Cetus and had the good fortune to get a room. It was a lovely jr. suite with a large terrace hanging over the sea. Built into the rocks, the views from our room, reception... More

This is probably the most beautiful hotel we've ever stayed in! Absolutely marvelous views from every room, incredible secluded private beach, best free breakfast ever with many local specialties including my favorite freshly baked sfogliatelle! Dinner was also very good and fairly priced. The decor was all in very good taste, utilizing the local styles and colorful ceramics. I just... More

The room so clean and bright, loved the ceramic tiles. As per the review previously, the restaurant a bit pricey. However, the breakfast was very good. The staff very friendly. I forgot the name of the young woman who enabled me to send an email to a family member as I did not have any devices with me. True, the... More

Spent a night here and loved the ocean view from the hotel. The room was quite spacious with two single beds and plenty of room for two luggage to spread out. The room although not fancy looks clean with Mediterranean style tiled floor. Amenities are specially made for the hotel and consists of shower caps, shower gel, shampoo and soap.... More

Hotel was very basic, internet was horrible but the view was beautiful. We had a lovely terrace that looked over the water but it was blocked by a large tree. Breakfast was nice each morning. There wasn't a shower curtain which was odd. The hotel was nothing special (except the view) but not awful.
