We stayed in this lovely hotel in early June 2009 and had a wonderful experience. The couple who own and manage it are young, elegant, intelligent, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are modern & clean, the views stunning. The common areas are elegant and modern in the best of Italian tradition. Things to consider are that (like most places on Amalfi Coast) one has to navigate stairs to get to the hotel from the road and that parking is on the street. Staff helps with suitcases. For those willing to descend (and later climb) more stairs, there is a lovely private beach for a swim or a daring skinny dip. Along the way down to the water, there is a small sauna with a view and even some rec machines. As mentioned elsewhere, breakfast is very good. Owner Christina accommodated our wish to have dinner brought in from a local restaurant which was served under moonlight in the garden section where breakfast is also served. It was magical. Having had the good fortune of a fair bit of international travel to attractive destinations, we spent a good deal of time looking for the right place to celebrate a round birthday and couldn't have found a better place to stay. If tranquility and charm are what you are looking for in a central location on the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast, you found the right place.
