Very nice family hotel. Staff was very pleasant, especially at the restaurant. The room was basic but clean and beautiful. We had a sea view from our room. The food is generally very good.

We stayed at the Bonadies at the end of our honeymoon and in comparison with the other two 4-star hotels we had stayed in earlier, it was awful. Our room was tiny - one chair, a bed and a desk were literally all you could fit in there - and right by the road. Although there wasn't much traffic at night, it was hard to relax with scooters whizzing by and people stopping for a chat right outside the window! The air conditioning unit was very noisy and kept clicking through the night. To cap it all, there was a shelf which had presumably had a TV on it, but was now rendered pointless by the wall-mounted screen above it; however, due to the lack of space in the room, my wife had to put her case on the floor below the shelf and kept hitting her head on it every time she got up!
The hotel facilities were pretty much non-existent - there is a pool which only gets the sunlight in the morning and is then cold for the rest of the day, and there was no lounge or communal area indoors to speak of.
However, the worst part for us was the food. The evening meals were bland and swimming in oil, and there was very little variety on the menu. Despite being on half board, we had to eat elsewhere on our last two nights as we couldn't face another meal at the hotel. Breakfast was also somewhat lacking, and there were rarely any staff around to offer drinks etc.
Although most of the staff were friendly, and the hotel is well positioned for the main town centre just down the road, we would definitely not stay there again. The area is lovely, the views are beautiful, but we felt very let down and were actually glad to come home - a very disappointing end to what had been a lovely honeymoon.

We had a wonderful time at the hotel. service impecable, rooms cleaned, beds and towels changed daily. Really friendly staff, food lovely. Views out of this world!
The only reason we did not give 5 was the furniture is a little outdated and worn.
, otherwise could not fault. We will go back!

Once again my wife and myself and two friends return to Ravello, our third visit in as many years... Congatulations to all at the Hotel Bonadies....Rooms as usual very clean... and a sea view to die for.... Meals in the restaurant Belle Vista sul Mare were as usual excellent... service top class even though the hotel hosted a wedding on the saturday.... Well done to Andrea Carrano and all the staff at the Hotel Bonadies... We will return....Richard Singleton. Hertfordshire. England.

We spent one night at this intimate and charming hotel. One of my favorite moments of our two week family trip to Italy was seeing the smile on my wife's face when she walked out of our room and onto our patio. We could have spent two days on that peaceful patio.

The rooms themselves were fine, though not luxurious.

The breakfast was delicious, with a wide array of offerings served in a lovely room.

The front desk was very welcoming and helpful.

I hope someday to return to this hotel and spend more time at this lovely hilltop town.

Another great time at the Bonadies. Excellent food in their restaurant - lovely mountain and sea views while you are eating. (cannot understand another reviewer saying the restaurant is downstairs and dark ) . Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would go back again any time.
