“Stunning location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

I stayed at La Ginestra with my family for one night recently on our trip along the Amalfi coast. Despite a slightly arduous drive along tortuous mountain roads to get there, it was well worth it. Beautiful sunny and peaceful location high up in the mountains with stunning views down to both the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated, both leading out on to a large shared balcony with sunloungers and chairs with a stunning view down the valley to the sea. We chose to stay in for dinner - 15 euros each for a simple but extremely tasty 3 course meal using home-grown organic produce. That also includes a bottle of local wine and a shot of limoncello/finocchietto.
The only negative was that we booked it under our mistaken impression that it would be a good base for visiting Positano, only 1.7km away according to the map. Unfortunately, there is no road down that face of the mountain, and you infact have to take a 30km route. It seems quite a few others also made this mistake!
All in all a completely lovely place to stay, in an incredibly beautiful location with friendly and hospitable staff who clearly put a lot of work into the place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2004

We stayed at La Ginestra, Vico Equense, in October 2004. We chose it as it was the last place on our stay and we thought it would be fairly handy for the autostrada and the trip back to Naples airport. Getting to Vico Equense was no problem, but then began a tortuous 10km drive into the mountains to La Ginestra, which actually sits 680 metres above Positano. However, the trip was worthwhile, as the views are breath taking, both of the bay of Naples and the Amalfi coast. Our room was fairly average, spacious, clean, with en-suite facilities and a shared balcony. La Ginestra is isolated so don't stay here if you are looking for nightlife. The tariff is half-board, which you'll need as you will not find much in the way of restaurants nearby. The welcome was very friendly and staff were very helpful. Stay here if you like walking; we walked to Positano down the old mule tracks, which took about two hours each way. Cost for two of us was 89 Euros per night for bed, breakfast and evening meal. And by the way, the trip to the airport took one and a half hours including traffic jams, etc.
