“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Casa Angelina's location is pretty unbeatable - there is a low house in between the hotel and the cliff drop but this doesn't spoil the view of the coastline. The hotel is modern and as other reviewers have pointed out very white (there are even 'paint men' who patrol the building in case a smudge appears on a wall!) The pool is relatively small but thankfully this is one of those hotels where the clientele don't feel the need to 'claim' sun loungers by leaving their books to sun bathe (I'm always tempted to cover the books in sun screen in case they start to burn). So there was always space for everyone.

We had a 'romantic room' facing the sea and a room with a terrace. Some of the rooms were facing the side which might be a little disappointing, so if your budget stretches I'd going for a sea view.

Rooms aren't huge but modern and spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed. Nice bathroom. If I had to split hairs, the balcony room didn't have a coffee machine - waiting for room service meant a slightly grumpy start to the day, being a caffeine-addict. Room service was, however, very quick.

The restaurant on the top floor was fabulous, though be warned it is quite expensive (as are a lot of the high end restaurants in the area). We ate on the pool terrace when we wanted something more casual and also at the great restaurant virtually opposite the entrance to the hotel (ask for a terrace table).

Stair warning: stairs up to the village - maybe 60-70. Stairs down to the beach - 200. Feels like 2000. Well I guess that was our exercise for the week! The stairs wind so it's not as bad as it sounds.

The shuttle into Positano was a nice service and we hired a hotel boat to Capri. Really recommend you do this as it was a beautiful trip along the coast. Our captain (Rocko?) was great - unobtrusive but attentive and ensured we didn't go flying when we transferred from the boat to the beach club boat in Capri. Lunch at Il Riccio - fantastic seafood. The tables are in the shade so easy to avoid the sun. Arriving by boat is fun, but you do need to climb onto land and up some slightly slippy stairs.

The staff were superb - attentive without hovering, nothing too much trouble, friendly and helpful. A big thank you to the team for a wonderful stay.

We enjoyed relaxing in the hotel so much we didn't see as much of the coast as we planned. So there's our excuse to go back!

Room Tip: Try for a room where you get to see the sunset if your budget allows.

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Casa Angelina. The hotel is stunning and in a breathtaking location. Unlike other reviewers, we found the staff extremely helpful and accommodating. We got to know a number of them and they were always warm and solicitous. There are some drawbacks - the internet is slow and the soundproofing is not good. The pool is small but I think that is likely to be true of all the hotels in this area as the hotels and pools are built into the cliffs. While we were there everyone managed to find a spot to sit and the staff went to great lengths to make that happen. Overall, this was a truly unique experience because of the modern beauty of the hotel in its stunning setting and the quality of service that the staff provided. I would highly recommend it as a very special hotel to stay at.

Just returning back from a wonderful three days in Casa Angelina. Words can barely describe how great this place is... It is a pity that there are not 6/5 ratings to give them one. The service excellence starts from the moment that you arrive at the reception and it continues throughout the experience. For once EVERY suggestion made by a hotel's "concierge" has been right on spot without any drawback. Side note: there is no real "concierge" in this place because ALL staff members are knowledgeable about almost all aspects of the overall experience. Well done Casa Angelina... We shall return!:-)

The hotel itself is beautiful. In a fantastic location, and so white and pristine. The array of Murano glasses incredible.

Plus points.
Breakfast - the most amazing food and choices and quality I have ever had.
Staff - friendly and polite and attentive.
location - amazing views
Food - in general the food was amazing
Extras - order a drink and you get a meal of extras of olives, crisps, nuts etc. lovely sorbets during the day.
Shuttle to Positano

minus points;
Third floor room - hear people walking in the restaurant until late at night and vey early in the morning. Bad sound proofing.
Wifi - is so slow it takes an age to download a mail, and you cat watch anything on your computer.
TV - only English channels are BBC World, and Sky News, and strangely Japanese news !!
No Movies or any lifestyle programs. Better to learn German !

Overall a lovely place, but a few adjustments could make it outstanding.

We had a fabulous meal at Casa Angelina.The food was excellent and the views ,just perfect.Very quiet and you felt as if you were a world away.The waitress was rushing us and we felt hurried as she was going off her shift for the afternoon.Very cold and not welcoming at all.The service needs to be improved dramatically.

Room Tip: We only had lunch at the restaurant.

This hotel has some fantastic attributes - the setting, the refurbishment - and the beach bar is great - really enjoyed going there - and using this as a base to take trips to Capri and Positano. The shuttle bus into Positano is also a real plus.

Other reviewers have commented on the service - which is impersonal and a bit sterile - the staff seem to be afraid of striking up anything approaching a personal relationship with a guest - very odd - and this gives it a private school or health clinic feel.

It's also true the hotel has some great assets in terms of space and rooms - which seem pemanently empty.

This is by no means a cheap hotel - so I would look around carefully - but at the right price and knowing what to expect - this would not be a bad place - this side of the coast much better than the other side / Sorrento.

Room Tip: We had a relaxing sea view room - rather small with a balcony - it was ok.

We have spend four nights in early July in this great hotel. I only have praise for the place and all the staff without exception. The rooms have a beautiful view and probably one of the cleanest I have stayed in . The breakfast is generous and the waiters are so pleasant. I had dinner in the hotel and I would certainly recommend it highly. Over and above , the hotel lobby is decorated by fantastic works of art that you will certainly enjoy.
