Stayed 8 nights and had a superior room.
We booked a superior view and it was well worth it. We had a view of the pool and ocean and had a private ‘L’ shape balcony. The hotel is very nice, well tended, and with friendly staff. The breakfast was great and the best we had in all our stays in Italy.
The clothes line on the balcony allowed us to do our laundry in our room which was a great plus.
A car is more than a practically as the hotel is far from the beaten track. But the free shuttle offered by the hotel certainly accommodates day trip as it can bring you to the train station or dock to catch a boat to Capri, Positano or Amalfi. I certainly would recommend taking a ferryboat or jet boat to those locations as the view of the Coast is breathtaking.
We had a misunderstanding with the hotel as we thought we had book for an extra night. Because we had not checked out and were on an excursion, they packed our room and left our belongings in the open in the reception area. We were quite shocked when we saw our personal effects and were told that we had to leave the hotel as they could not accommodate us because they were fully booked that night. The owner was kind enough to find us a room in another hotel and drive us there. I think we would have appreciated if our effects had been in a storage room and not right in the middle of the reception where everybody could see it. All in all our wonderful week ended in a dog’s breakfast. That is why I gave it a very good instead of excellent.
