“Beautiful hotel, gardens and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

My husband and I are just back from a week at this lovely hotel where we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed a week at the Santa Caterina and a week at the Palazzo Sasso in Ravello. The Santa Caterina is a lovely hotel with beautiful views of the coast and the town of Amalfi. The hotel's gardens are just lovely and very popular for weddings! The staff are just great, very friendly, and the breakfast buffet was very good. It is only a 10 minute walk to Amalfi which is a super, vibrant town with plenty of restaurants and shops. Boat trips to various places can be booked in Amalfi. I would thoroughly recommend the Santa Caterina and the Palazzo Sasso (i placed a review of this hotel too).

Hotel Santa Caterina is an incredibly charming and romantic hotel located on the top of a cliff, with a view of the Mediterranean.

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from town, which means that you get a bit more privacy, compared to the hotels in town.

The hotel does not have its own beach, but don’t worry, because they have made their very own “platform” over the cliffs, which you can get directly to by taking the hotel elevator. From the platform, you can swim in their salt water pool or swim directly into the ocean. Obviously, there is also a lunch restaurant in connection with the platform as well as a fitness centre, so you have everything you need within reach.

They only minor drawback of the hotel is their spa facilities, which are rather limited, with very small changing rooms, even though the treatments are just fine. However, this minor drawback is not enough to reduce the overall grade, as the view, atmosphere, experience, food and service are almost magical.

The hotel restaurant is not a Michelin star restaurant, but the food and service still deserves 5 stars, so all in all, I can highly recommend Hotel Santa Caterina.

There are more expensive hotels on the Amalfi coast that are also 5-star hotels, but with regard to ”value for money”, Hotel Santa Caterina is the place to stay.

Mt wife and our youngest son (16) had one of the most delightful weeks as guests here. Also one of the most expensive at 1,000 euros a day but it was such heaven, would go again at the drop of a hat. The Lovely food, the fantastic views, the walk down through the lemon grove hanging on the cliff face, the snorkeling, the pampering, what heaven. Joy.

I personally love Amalfi Coast and have been in many places and hotels there. Santa Caterina Hotel represent the best choice to live the glamour of the coast and pampering of a 5*L hotel, yet preserving the cordiality and friendliness of the local people. The property itself is simply amazing, nestled in the rocks just on the sea, therefore there are wonderful views and having breakfast or a drink at night in the terrace is an experience itself. I had a standard room with a lateral sea view but could enjoy a great panorama anyway, from a very well maintained balcony. The room wasn't exactly big, but was very clean, well furnished, following the local style that gives the property its own personality. Service has been impeccable, just once I asked for some magazines but they weren't able to deliver them on time. I could pardon them very easily though after being given a whole bag full of lemons as a gift ;)

A fantastic 7 days at Santa Caterina. super staff, great service. Definitely one for the bucket list if you haven't done it yet. My only negative would be the the prices in the main Restaraunt. Better food available around town at half the price.
Will definitely go back to HSC but will not fall into the trap of eating there.

Room Tip: Room 19 was with a magnificent view, just outstanding.

We are packing our bags and just getting ready to leave this paradise. My wife and I travel and vacation extensively, mostly in Asia, but at least one trip a year to Europe and we can not say enough good things about the Santa Catarina. The property is stunning, on the water of the Amalfi Coast. You can jump in the Sea from your poolside lounge chair (which are always availailable, even when the hotel is full. But the greatest part of the hotel is the amazing staff. Probably the nicest staff of any hotel we have ever stayed in. The rooms are typical of this area. We had a lovely suite with a full view of the Mediterranean. We had tried to book a hotel on Capri, but they were all booked as was this hotel, but at the last minute something opened. I doubt we would ever stay in Capri after a visit here. We are already looking forward to coming next year, same time!!!

Room Tip: get a balcony!
