“First Class Hotel”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We were very satisfied with our experience with the hotel. We had a partial seaview room that was beautiful, but was somewhat small, especially the lack of closet space. The rainshower and large bathtub were outstanding though. We took the shuttle to the Sasso Beach which is about a 20 minute ride away, but was very relaxing with outstanding service. The walk to the main square is about 5 minutes with a decent number of shops for a small town. The service is outstanding.

Room Tip: Worth the extra money to stay here.

This part of the amalfi coast is utterly enchanting, and Palazzo Sasso is stunning. If money is no object then treat yourself to a stay at Palazzo Sasso. This is one of the few top class hotels that I would recommend for families. The staff were very obliging and there is enough to keep all ages entertained,

we went for 3 nights with my 3 year old daughter, everything was truely wonderful except for the ladies that work in the spa.....they tutted every time & were very annoyed when i went to take my daughter to the spa loo which was the closest to the pool. they dont understand that when little ones have to go they have to go fast and i couldnt get her up 3 flights of stairs just to the loo. We were very aware that our daughter was a little bit louder than the average guest sleeping and reading by the pool and tried to keep her as quiet as possible but the spa ladies came out and told us off about 3 times. The pool staff who were great and bent over backwards to be sweet to my daughter told me to ignore them and said it always happens. So if you go with children - stay away from the scary spa ladies !

This hotel is stunning! The views are simply breathtaking! The service is impeccable!
Palazzo Sasso is just a stone throw away from the town hall and main area of Ravello. The entrance is off a narrow cobbled street. As soon as you enter the hotel you are greeted by the staff and nothing is too much trouble. The food here is exquisite and the dining areas are fantastic. You will not want to leave..

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view.

Palazzo Sasso is STUNNING! My fiance and I recently stayed there and I honestly cannot say enough about this hotel. A few highlights:
-The VIEW... WOW! It's truly breathtaking. I wish I could eat breakfast on a patio overlooking Ravello every morning! So special!!!
-The location... 5 minutes walk from the town square in Ravello, 40 minutes drive to Naples airport, 20 minutes to Amalfi. It's remote, yet centrally located.
-The service.... From coordinating dinner reservations (which we had to change last minute) to having our car waiting out front whenever we needed it, the hotel staff/concierge could not have been more helpful.
-Sasso by the sea- Lounging by the water, taking a dip in the sea, drinking iced tea, sunbathing, grilled sea bass, the colors, the service, the weather.... all perfect!

Palazzo Sasso is really heaven on earth. I loved every second of it and hope to visit again soon. I HIGHLY recommend staying/dining/visiting.

Again the Best Hotel in the world!
The STAFF MAKE THE PLACE!
Antonio, Madalegna, Jacquline, Vittorio, Gerado and all the rest!!!!!!!!

The name will change next year to Palazzo Avino but as long as new management keep the staff in place i will return again and again!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are the best!

We stayed at Palazzo Sasso in July 2012 and were very happy with our little holiday there. The view is truly spectacular and dinner at the hotel was very memorable. The chef is very creative and often surprised us with new delicious combinations. Before dinner we had some drinks and I can only recommend the Bellini. It's the best Bellini I have tasted so far, very fresh and fruity. The reception area and lobby are beautiful and the staff were friendly, however sometimes a little pretentious. The room we stayed in was ok. It was rather small and the decor was not as warm and comfortable as I would have liked. We did have a view however, so that made up for it.
