My wife and I visited Amalfi, with friends, in the first week of September 2013 and had a wonderful time here.
The first impression was that it was designed in the sixties, but this somehow added to the charm of the place. I could imagine Roger Moore standing at the bar, wearing a linen suit, with a martini in one hand and pistol in the other.
All the staff are lovely, with a special mention for head waiter Anthony (or more likely Antonio).
The rooms all appear to be facing the sea and the view from the balconies come under the breathtaking category.
The food is excellent, as is eating it on a veranda above Amalfi!
Because the hotel is on a hill above Amalfi the hotel lays on a regular shuttle to and from the town - which sticks to its timetable superbly. This bus is always full, but we always managed to get on it.
We'd definitely return.
Make sure you visit Capri when you're there!
