We spent a week here as part of a package holiday and found that the upper rooms - with the magnificent views - were allocated to guests staying only for a few days. We had a room on the ground floor, overlooking the gardens with a glimpse of the sea through trees. Although clean and comfortable, the room was adequate if a little tired. Food was reasonably good but portions were very small and if you wanted to upgrade to a la carte, your pre-paid for table d' hote meal was not offset. Breakfast was good if you stuck to the bread, pastries and t-bags. Coffee and juice was from a machine and disgusting. Because of the position of the hotel, there was no sun in the pool area after 3pm which was very disappointing. The staff were incredibly efficient and friendly. Antonio, the maître d' greeted everyone by name and was on duty from breakfast until last serving of dinner. The deck-chairs around the pool, added to the old fashioned ambiance of the hotel and the view from the terraces - a different one for breakfast and dinner not to mention the bar area were breathtaking - but I'm afraid the view wouldn't temp me back to this hotel. Amalfi is beautiful and if I returned, it would be to a hotel in, not above the town, where we could venture out in the evening without having to pay for a taxi.
