We chose Hotel la Badia as our base on a Riviera Travel week long tour of the area. We knew we would have a packed itinerary which would leave us little time in the hotel. We paid for, and were given, a room with a magnificent view across the Bay of Naples, flanked by the local hills and opposite Vesuvius. It was everchanging and a delight to wake up to in the morning and to look at, with illuminated cruise ships nearby, in the evening. The room was spotless and well looked after every day. It was a bit smaller than we are used to (many of them were monks' cells from when it was an abbey) but it did not detract from the key issues of sleeping and showering (etc) in the good sized bathroom (without a bath, which we seldom use even at home). The staff were all friendly, helpful and entertaining, especially Antonio, the maitre d', and his restaurant staff. The food was generally good and plentiful and the staff were happy to offer alternatives on the occasion when some of the group did not enjoy their choice. Vegetarian and wheat/gluten free options were available at every meal without fuss. Short and acceptable wine list and a bar for post-prandial drinks (only limoncello for us, but it was so good!), as well as tea and coffee when needed during the day. I would happily return to la Badia and recommend it.
