La Medusa Hotel & BoutiqueSpa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We made our reservations September 2012 almost as the last moment on the internet. We were staying in Revello, above Almalfi and wanted to be closer to Pompei .... well the hotel in Revello acted like why would we want to go to Castellammare di Stabia... so we were a bit anxious... we drove down a road that did not look that appealing, until we saw the hotel, La Medusa It was beautiful, we were greeted like long lost relatives ( or better!).

The manger just could not do enough for us... we stayed 3 nights and ate dinner there each night. We had excellent food and great service....the gardens were a delight, we could sit out there and have lunch or cocktails....

The only thing I would have a negative comment would be the charge for using the pool towels...

We were just a short ride to see the ruins at Herculaneun which were FAb and there are a few sites within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel offered free car service to the train and we did take the train to Pompei, no hassel and fun.

I highly recommend this hotel.

If you're looking to stay in the Pompeii/Napoli area this hotel is a real find. First, be warned. It isn't cheap. But if you want a taste of paradise for a few days, this is for you.
From the welcome when you first step into the lobby to the handshakes at departure, the staff are entirely focused on making your stay a relaxing and pleasant experience. The hotel is grand and charming in equal measure, the rooms were pleasant and clean if a little small but the real treat is waiting outside. The hotel sits in its own garden paradise, a lemon grove complete with hammock, lazy sofas and chairs which provide a perfect location for drinks or just to relax. Lunch is served in a covered restaurant in the grounds, and the large (and very deep...!) pool is located there too. After a day in the pool, the garden was lit up at night by candlelight, making for a perfect romantic haven.
Negatives (and it is difficult to find many): dinner was eye wateringly expensive and the restaurant a bit too formal, which didn't fit in with the relaxed atmosphere of the rest of the hotel. The area is definitely not one for the holiday snaps either, just like many of the towns near to Napoli. But this is the sort of hotel where you won't want to step out for the evening.
For couples looking for a romantic break,or just for a night of luxury for the family near Napoli, this place will be hard to beat.

We were staying here in mid-September and everything was like in paradise:-).There certainly is a rule that the best service comes from the heart and you can see that at every step of your stay ....and when you combine it with a beautiful garden and swimming pool you will get a real paradise. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a little privacy, romance and friendly people. (Especially Francesco and his staff) They very willingly even prepared a cake to celebrate the birthday of my beloved one:-) Thank you:-)

It was good that we had a car because in the surroundings there is much to see.

As we are in the 21st century and the Internet is a necessity, so unfortunately still a large part of Italy continues to use fees or restrictions, unlike the rest of Europe .....but this little thing certainly did not spoil the joy of the whole stay.... (We did not pay but the Internet connection was interrupted after one hour....)

Thank you very much for a lovely stay:-)

We stayed at this hotel just for one night before visiting Pompeii. We received a very warm welcome, and had a relatively small but very comfortable room. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed excellent, professional service and some delicious food and wine. Definitely recommended.

A complete hidden treasure, amazing staff, gorgeous views, delicious food and a small paradise at night. After taking a wrong turn or two I found myself greeted by warm and friendly staff who immediately made me feel at home. A last minute massage request granted, guide booked for Pompeii and an upgraded room! Nothing bad to say other than two nights there would have been better than one!

Make no mistake La Medusa Grand Hotel is paradise. We recently stayed here on our honeymoon, we only wish we could have stayed longer. Please be advised I used a sat nav to find the hotel, the sat nav takes you to the end of the street outside a restaurant called IL Gambero, don't panic the hotel is about 400m further along Via Passeggiata Archeologica on the right. We turned thought the huge white gates and drove up the beautiful driveway to a fountain at the end, to be greeted by Francesco the hotel manager a true gentleman. With a frendily smile he welcomed us into the hotel, after a quick and painless checkin we left our bags. We had arrived early so our room was not quite ready, so Francesco took us fo a tour of the hotel, gardens and pool. It is an truly amazing place, he left us to grab a cool lemon ice drink (made with local lemons from Gragnano) and relax in the gardens. Within 15 minutes one of the hotel staff came and found us to say our room was ready, we were shown to our room. We opened the door to find our bags in the room, we walked into a large air conditioned room with a terrace overlooking the front gardens and fountain. We unpacked and relaxed. We returned downstairs, obtained a free wifi code and Francesco informed us there was a wedding today in their function room (on the 4th floor) but not to worry, but tomorrow we should check out the view from the terrace on the top floor.

We spent the next 5 days site seeing from this location and relaxing around the pool, all of Francesco's staff were so friendly and helpful. They even photocopy the front pages of american and english news papers everyday for hotel guests to take. The restaurant food was fantastic and the service was 1st class, as was the breakfast 'a veritable feast'. Francesco is a font of local knowledge, with advice on the local area from restaurants to tourist attractions.

We would like to say we were not affected by the wedding party at all, we would like to thank Francesco and all of his staff for making our stay so special. We will definatley return to La Medusa and would recommend it to anyone looking for paradise in Southern Italy.

Grazie Mille

The Superior four-star Hotel is a romantic villa "fin de siecle" made up of 49 rooms, whose restoration is constantly in balance between the respect for the past and the influence of contemporary style.A unique and authentic place made ​​of beautiful old trees and surrounded by green surfaces, that admires the spectacular Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.On one hand, the common areas, characterized by an unmistakable style and a wonderful elegance, which completely respect the important classical style of the structure; on the other hand, the rooms, a continuous alternation of contemporary and classical Design.A Hotel, on its own, marked by a deeply individual style where the care for details, quality and hospitality represents the common denominator.The ceramics of Amalfi Coast hand-painted with an exclusive design, the antique furniture and tapestries characterize the lobby, the bar and the restaurant situated on the ground floor of the hotel; so quiet places, that make possible living in a private and protected dimension... Where each detail becomes a pleasure to be relished. The huge glass windows in Liberty Style divide the building from the secular park: an explosion of flowers and colours, a wide open-air sitting-room completely equipped with chaise-longue, easy-chairs and gazebos; an unforgettable atmosphere beyond every expectation.Around the park full of flowers, the outside Fitness Corner represents an opportunity to keep oneself fit in an uncontaminated and healthy environment; the wellness swimming-pool with geysers, the sun beds, the large solarium represent an occasion of certain and pleasant relax. From here just a step to get to the Pool Bar for an aperitif, and another for sipping a vintage wine at the outside restaurant Il Gazebo & Le Terrazze in the middle of the citrus grove.Here the Chef suggests a refined, precious Mediterranean and International cuisine, a perfect balance among tastes, smells and colours.Excellent services like a Mercedes shuttle bus to the city centre or the close beaches, the free parking, the opportunity to rent a yacht or book private excursions and much more... Will make your stay unforgettable. ... more   less
