We spent two nights in Amalfi prior and the reason for booking te next two nights at alfonso a mare was because of the quiet location in between positano and Amalfi.
With a small beach just seconds away from the room. You really don't need anything else. The bus picks you up on top of a very steep driveway and will take you both directions to Amalfi or Sorrento and positano. We walked to praiano to see what was there and to be honest don't waste your time because its just a Main Street and the restaurant opposite the hotel is beautiful (petit bare mare). Catch the bus to positano if you want it's beautiful.
You can walk around the cliff face to a few more restaurants that have the best view. And it's good to watch the boats come in as the small dock is just outside the hotel.
I'm only 20 years old so it's for young people looking to relax before we head to Ibiza .
The best thing is that it's a family owned business and the rooms are immaculate and spacious, bed very comfy and good water pressure from the shower, rooms have aircon as well.
Only down side is that it was time to leave :(
If you get the bus to the hotel make sure you get off just before praiano.
