“Perfection”
Reviewed August 27, 2007

This hotel experience was one of the best I have ever had. It was magical. Tips? Call the hotel and get the inclusive rate, which gets you breakfast (in bed if you wish) and a lunch or dinner (the hotel restaurant is fancy and worth it. We had two 300.00 meals included in the rated room, nice!) We had first attempted to stay at the Plazzo Sasso, but it was booked. The PS is ten steps from the Caruso and we had a drink there and realized the Caruso was much more what we wanted...elegance. The town of Ravello is sweet and small. We caught a music in the part... Branford Marsales over looking the cliffs and the mountains. We drove to Positano it was too too curvey of a drive (beleive me) I would pay for the ferry from Amalfi. We did the hotel boat tour (free!) it was so worth it. Spend the afternoon in Amalfi and have lunch at De Gemma.

Stayed August 2007

My husband and I spent the first 4 nights of our honeymoon here. It was magical, the service was exceptional, the junior suite comfortable and romantic with rose petals in the bath and champagne on ice when we arrived. Our patio included a couch and 2 lounge chairs (on grass) and a dining table overlooking the Sea! What a view. The food was excellent. And the infinity pool, an amazingly grand view of the Mediterranean and mountains. It was a little piece of heaven. Can't wait to return. Expensive, yes, but worth every cent.

This is one of the most spectacular luxury hotels that I have visited. I was there with my father and my 9 yr old son. The pool is stunning . The rooms are stunning. The food is terrific. The entire staff is as close to perfection as one can get. It is a place for a romantic trip, but it also is great for a family trip too.

My wife and I stayed at the Caruso for 3 nights in June. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Our room was great, the staff was very attentive, the food was delicious, and the hotel's grounds, especially te pool, were drop dead goregous. Can't wait to go back!

Recently returned from the hotel caruso in ravello- the hotel is beautiful with great views - the pool is on the edge of the mountain with beautiful gardens- everyone was very helpful and friendly- great buffet breakfast- the town is quiet and charming- the room was large with a nice bathroom- just make sure when you book that you ask for a room with a water view- while we were next to a nice garden it was across the street from the main hotel- for the price of the room expected to be facing the water- it was a great hotel to relax at- eat in town at trattoria cumpa cosimo- mamma cooks a great meal there - the hotel restaurant has great views and service- food was good but not amazing for the price- would love to go back but will make sure to get a water view..

We stayed two nights in the Hotel Caruso in May of 2007 and were impressed with the beauty and quality of the facility, the rooms and the gardens. However, we were disappointed with a few of the restaurant staff and the chef. The food was OK, but not great. Breakfast was buffet, but at times the wait staff hung around and chatted among themselves while clearing tables. Dinner service was haphazard and they appeared to be understaffed.
We had a wonderful room. Unfortunately, it was next to the piano lounge. They amplify the singer and you could hear him through the walls. They could probably solve this problem by not having the pianist sing,or by not having him amplified, or they could do what Orient Express does at their Playa del Carmen hotel, have the Piano Bar in a separate structure.

My husband had a massage and he said it was like being petted. His general reaction was - creepy.

All of these things can be easily fixed and hopefully OE will see to it. I would be delighted to return if I read that things have changed.

This is a great place for honeymooners with no experience of better establishments.

  • Liked — Incredible location and interiors
  • Disliked — Restaurant staff, room noise. Avoid room 101
