We stayed 4 nights in Sep '13, and were unfortunately a bit let down.
Upon check in, the hotel manager was lovely and welcoming and told us to ask her if we had any questions at all as she was happy to help.
The next day I had some questions about Amalfi etc, so I asked a few questions. From then on, it sort of seemed like we were interuppting or annoying to the staff everytime we asked something. One afternoon we asked for a couple of cappuccinos, which was apprehensively done with a little huff and puff.
Also, upon check in, we were advised our room was just outside the main building as this was the room given to agent bookings (made through a travel agency). The room had a view of a neighbouring roof top, the WiFi didn't work as we had to sit at our doorstep and it is directly underneath the breakfast room, meaning you're woken up every morning by chair being dragged across the ground. Breakfast was okay but very basic.
The worst part, was the bed. Two singles pushed together, but somehow the middle of the 'double' bed seemed to sag inward. The result - epic back pains in the morning.
The good parts - very close to the port, beach and main town square. Nice, charming coastal property. Nice view from breakfast balcony.
