The absolutely stunning Amalfi coast has incredible view after view along it's mountainous coastal road, however in my opinion there is none better than the experience of relaxing in the superb beautiful location of the Grand Excelsior above Amalfi, and just gazing down on that delightful, simply beautiful harbour and town that gives it's name to the region.
The hotel is situated about a 15 minute bus ride up the mountain from Amalfi towards the equally delightful village of Pogerola. Again with breathtaking scenes on every corner. Arriving for the first time at the Excelsior a guest may be dissapointed with the approach as you are really going in by the back door! However enter the reception, walk across the marble floor to the terrace and you cannot fail to be moved by that view, I promise.
The hotel has a sense of ageing grandeur, perhaps a bit 70's bling, but charm and character to delight. The many terraces and gardens provide so many places for relaxing, and excellent staff always on hand to assist in unpretensious fashion, I cannot help believe that this must be the very best located hotel in this area, at any price!
