We had a great stay at Onda Verde! It's a little out of the way (Praiano),but in a good way! We're SO glad we didn't stay in Positano, which to us was a real tourist trap and very crowded. Onda Verde was the perfect place to spend a relaxing 6 days on the Amalfi Coast. We had a beautiful room with lovely tiled floors, and a balcony that overlooked the water and up the cliffs. The hotel has a gorgeous patio with comfortable lounge chairs overlooking the sea--a perfect spot for relaxing with a good book. We were there in early October--the weather was sunny and warm, and it was not very crowded. Good breakfasts with lots of choices (including scrambled eggs, bacon or ham most days--contrary to the reviewer who says their breakfasts were "basic"). In nice weather you can dine outdoors on the veranda with breathtaking views. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We tried to have dinner in a variety of restaurants, so we only ate at Onda Verde once for dinner and once for lunch. It was good, not great, but no matter........it was still a wonderful place to stay, and we would definitely go back. By the way, the hotel looks EXACTLY like the photos on the web site--pretty special!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 104--especially nice room with a balcony and a gorgeous view! Just a heads up tha...

A group of 11 of us stayed here for a week.My husband and I had booked a double room with a sea view. Our room was lovely with a reasonable sized bathroom, good storage and hanging space for clothes and a comfortable bed. We also had a balcony with 2 deck chairs. We were a bit disappointed that we were on the side of the hotel and mainly looked at the cliffs and the ocean views were from our balcony. We were even more disappointed when we saw our friend's rooms and realized they were all larger and faced the water. We believed we had requested the same rooms as them months prior to coming. However we did find our room comfortable although the shower and screen in the bath were awkward to get into. The room also did not have a safe. Our package included breakfast and dinner every day. Meals were eaten on the terrace overlooking the water which was lovely. Breakfast was basic with only a few choices except for the beautiful pastries. It was possible to get cooked meals but you had to pay for them. The meals at night were 3 courses with a choice of 3 dishes for entree and main and a surprise dessert. The standard of the food was very good and there were only a couple of dishes that were not as tasty as the others.They also catered for a vegetarian gluten intolerant lady in our group. Our waiter Pepe was fantastic - always smiling and helpful. It was possible to do a cooking lesson with the chef Nikola. This was fantastic and he taught us how to make pasta, fillings for pasta and different ways to cook it and sauces for it. He was so patient and friendly and even helped organize some handlines for a couple of men in the group to do some fishing off the rocks below.
Also as part of the package there were day trips to Capri and Pompei these were both great although the Pompei trip did not include entry fees to Pompei or Vesuvius and you were expected to pay for lunch at the stop the bus took you to so this added about 70 euro to the day. A part of the package we did enjoy was the private transfer from Naples to the hotel in S class Mercedes. Not only were they very comfortable but allowed a lovely trip on the coast road.
Overall I could recommend this hotel and one of their packages to anyone wanting to experience fully the Amalfi coast.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing the front of the hotel as they seemed larger and had great views.

"Superior Room" was lovely with spectacular sea view and small terrace.Spotlessly clean.Excellent breakfasts and good wholesome dinners.Safe sea swimming 2 minutes below Hotel and a number of restaurants in easy walking distance.Praino is an ideal base for the Costiera Amalfitana and frequent buses leave from the "fermata" outside the hotel and boat trips/water taxis depart from just below hotel at Marina de Praia.We really enjoyed returning to the tranquility of the Onda Verde after a day out visiting the much busier Positano or Amalfi.The thing that really made our stay special however was the outstanding friendliness of La Famiglia Milano and our waiter Pepe.Grazie mille,Paul and Pam.

We decided on a 1st Amalfi coast trip to spend 3 days Positano, take water taxi to Amalfi (3 nights also) before moving to the mid point Praiano for a final 2 nights.
It worked well but on a return visit we would make it revolve around Praiano - the best location on the coast. Onda Verde has an excellent location - it is not a long walk to the centre of Praiano 20 mins (and all downhill on the way back!).
This was one of the finest hotels I have stayed in, and although we did not want a car - the SITA buses (stop outside) are fine, i noted the parking was free.
Cuisine was excellent and the whole hotel had a very sociable feel and made many new friends sitting on the sun terrace a 90 second walk from the water.
I would have one small criticism only - that the service charge of 15% preapplied to the food bill is slightly excessive but negoitable i am sure.
We do not do any tours as we felt that Herculaneum or Pompeii are best visited on arrival day or the day after if you arrived Naples in the evening, or maybe on departure day with a driver.
With an evening arrival you can either debunk to Naples or go to Sorrento (75 mins on the excellent Curreri Viaggi coach shuttle 10Euros) and then use the Circumvesuviana train next morning to go to Herculaneum or Pompeii which both have left luggage facilities or alternatively leave luggage at Sorrento hotel for a few hours.
Can't wait to go back - thank you Milano family.

Have just returned from Italy finishing off with a week at Onde Verde. It is far more fabulous than in the pictures!! Rooms have been updated and are beautifully clean with views to die for! Location is fantastic, wonderful to be able to escape from the crowds. Thank you to Giuseppe for picking figs from his Mother's tree for my breakfast and to the chef for showing me how to make real Ravioli - a fair trade was to get him to taste Vegemite! We have left behind friends, and brought home wonderful memories.

Room Tip: Handy to have a car

My first three days in Italy I stayed at Hotel Onda Verde. I am so glad I chose the smaller town of Praiano over Positano or Amalfi. The area is beyond belief gorgeous and I spent hours just looking at the views. The hotel is wonderful and restaurant is excellent. I walked to town, about 20 minutes, but there is also a small beach next to the hotel and several other bars and restaurants within a short walk. My single room was small but comfortable and the views from my shared balcony made it impossible to stay indoors. I will return here and would recomend this hotel for all travelers. It has easy access to the other Amalfi towns without the large amounts of tourist.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with seaview and a private balcony
