We booked Villa Fraulo for the last part of our honeymoon around the Amalfi coast. It was a lovely way to finish on a high point.
The Hotel is recently finished and immaculately decorated with some style. Our room was clean and generously sized with a sea view and balcony, despite being on one of the lower floors. The outside terrace was a particularly nice place to while away a day in the sunshine with amazing views and the pool, while not heated, is a very neat use of a small space.
The staff were unfailingly helpful, printing off car hire vouchers on request and in particular Mauricio in the bar was a wealth of information about life in the area and the places nearby.
We did not eat in the restaurant because it seemed very expensive. The breakfast was good, especially the coffee. They made a very fine job of our laundry, but charged 25 euros which seemed alot for one small load!
Overall it's one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in and well worth splashing out on.
A word about Ravello- it really is as nice as the hype. It is a beautiful place, there seems to be a breathtaking view around every corner, the steps and cobbles of the streets are not too crowded and it manages not to feel too touristy. The gardens at Villa Cimbrone are especially well worth a visit.
