The Hotel Santa Caterina was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The service, spa, restaurants, room accommodations, actual location of the hotel- everything was just superb. I've traveled to several countries in Europe and this is the only place I would return to in an instant!

Room Tip: The villa is especially nice with a private patio- quiet and relaxing!

The Amalfi Coast is stunning to start with and then bolt a 5 star hotel to the cliff and the result is that every view is like a postcard. The hotel is just outside of town so guests feel like they are in a more isolated resort rather than surrounded by tourists. The hotel is spread between a number of buildings across the cliff face that are connected by outdoor walkways. It can be a bit of a walk to some of the more distant rooms but we didn't mind the isolation.

Service is top notch. A terrific breakfast buffet is included and the waiters will gladly let you fill your plates but then intercept you to carry it back to your table for you. They don't take no for an answer. My wife and I had a contest to see who could bolt back to our table without a waiters assistance. We were rarely successful.

This hotel is anything but cheap but of all the pricey places we stayed during our two weeks in Italy, this was the one place where there was no doubt the money was well spent.

What a treat. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, everyone at Hotel Santa Catarina was wonderful. In fact, they were terrific even before we arrived. In preparing for our trip, I emailed the hotel on multiple occasions, asking for their help with everything from restaurant recommendations to making arangements for a car service to pick us up in Naples and drive us to the hotel.

Once we were there, they helped us arrange for a private boat tour which was wonderful and included a stop for lunch at a place you can only get to by boat (not included in the price btw). In addition, they have a shuttle that goes to town, which is great because the cost of a taxi is 10 Euro. As an example of their level of service, even though the shuttle doesn't operate after 6:30 pm. when we asked for a taxi to bring us to town for dinner, they had the shuttle take us.

The hotel itself is gorgeous and immaculate. Our room was always spotless. The main lobby area is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We found ourselves hanging out there more than at other hotels because it was so inviting and relaxing. The grounds are beautiful and there is always someone tending to them.

The food was very good. We had breakfast every day, two lunches and one dinner. Highly recommend the folded pizza (calzone) with sauteed endive. Delicious!

I can't say enough about this hotel, which is really nice for a change. Every single person on their staff was genuinely nice, many knowing our name after the first day or so. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth every penny.

This was by far the best hotel experience of our 2 week europe trip. The staff was fabulous and eager to help us in any which way possible. Not to mention the room was excellent and view from the common areas of the hotel is just fantastic. Food was wonderful, especially the breakfast - they had a lot of variety as compared to other hotels around italy. Highly recommended!
