Hotel Locanda Costa Diva
Ranked #5 of 20 Hotels in Praiano
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Locanda Costa Diva is simply the best restaurant on Amalfi coast, the atmosphere is really warm and friendly, the food amazingly good and fresh and the view from the terrace...breathtaking. One of my best dining experience by far!

Stayed here in mid-September on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed.
Its location is stunning, perched on the cliff with far-ranging views over the famous coast. Set among terraced gardens shaded by lemon trees, the dining area open to the elements gives you spectacular views while you eat. We dined there every evening and the food was delicious. The inclusive breakfast was simple with a range of fruit, pastries and cereal and the atmosphere laid back and relaxing.
Our room with its balcony overlooking the sea was small but very clean.
The staff at this family run hotel were friendly, efficient and worked very hard. Parking is at a premium on this coast and we appreciated the private car park and the artful way they managed to
valet park everyone's car. We still don't know how they did it!
Praiano is well situated mid-way between Positano and Amalfi but much quieter with a lovely little swimming cove just 5 minutes walk down hill from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony with a sea view.

This is the second time we have stayed here and can recommend this hotel - simple, clean with fantastic views and lovely food. Staff couldn't be more helpful.

Good breakfast and easy access to the local beach. This would be a great location for a wedding!

We arrived here on foot, having walked from Amalfi over the mountain and having got lost several times! Tired and foot sore and very relieved to find our hotel. We got a wonderful welcome, room with gorgeous view and own terrace. The hotel is beautiful with lovely gardens spilling down the hillside towards the sea. Very well maintained and full of flowers lemons etc. The restaurant looks out over the gardens and the sea and we enjoyed a delicious supper watching the sun go down. The hotel provides a calm and relaxed atmosphere very different to our visits to Amalfi and Positano teeming with tourists and is highly recommended as a base. We set off from here to walk to Positano via the sentieri degli Dei. This is a wonderful walk, very well signed although the initial climb as always around here is long and steep.

Stayed three nights in mid September. The hotel is very informal, and spills down the side of the hill near the small beach of La Praia. We booked a superior room ("Rafaella") which was our our cabin on the edge of the cliff, with stunning views of the ocean and the surroundings. Sleeping with the balcony doors open all night was just awesome, with the sunrise visible from bed! We were surrounded by olive and lemon trees and pomegranate bushes. All very lovely, all very typical of the area.

The Amalfi Coast is, obviously, very hilly, so expect lots of steps to go anywhere. The hotel has lots of steps - many from our very quiet, isolated cabin up to the restaurant area and then up to the exits on to the Via Roma, the main road. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and will carry your luggage up and down, which is a great thing. The breakfasts included with the room rate are very good, and the restaurant is generally good (but not inexpensive.)

Getting there can be a challenge. We used the SITA bus from Sorrento. You need to ask for Praiano Stop 9 (main entrance) or Stop 10 (Restaurant entrance), which are stops after the more central area of Praiano and after the Chiesa di S. Gennaro if you are coming from Sorrento and Positano. The SITA buses are usually very, very full by the time they get to Praiano from either the Positano or the Amalfi direction, so expect to stand for most of your trips on these buses, if you can actually get on them. This can be a real hassle, so make sure you have time in hand when attempting to make transfers. Leave early!!! Taxis are available, but are pretty expensive.

You can catch the local bus from Praiano to Positano instead, if you are exploring, and then take a ferry from Positano to Amalfi and beyond. We found this to be much less of a hassle than the SITA bus, and really quite inexpensive, plus you get an awesome experience and stunning views. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, all those we tried were really good. The little beach at La Praia is very lovely, and the walks by the sea at the bottom of the cliffs very pleasant indeed. Don't miss a visit to the art studio of Paulo Sandulli in the Tower at the bottom of the cliff!

We have to thank Faith from amalfivacations.com for suggesting the Costa Diva and we can see why she did. There are occasions when you wish everyone you know could have shared and this was one. My wife, who is very fussy said it just might have been the cleanest room she's ever stayed in. The views were wonderful and the food was perfection, but the real surprise was that the price was very reasonable considering the gourmet meals. A wonderful meal for the two of us including wine was only around 60 euros. Here in New Hampshire (never mind Boston) we've spent more than twice that many times. Thank you, thank you, and what wonderful service!
