We booked this hotel through secret escapes and were really looking forward to spending our honeymoon at the hotel. We had seen a couple of 'average reviews' that had been left on this site but when we arrived at the hotel we were not disappointed! (personally I think the people who left those reviews are 'very picky' travellers who just spend their time picking out all the bad bits and moaning)
We felt like we were in a private, exclusive hotel - only 22 rooms, but they were not all full at the same time and it felt like there were only half a dozen couples staying in the hotel which was really nice.
Its only 10 minutes from the train station as we travelled by train, the hotel booked us a taxi and when you arrive the hotel looks exclusive. The reception is relaxing colours, marble floors, spacious and inviting.
We found all the staff very helpful, they helped us book a car, gave us directions and generally were very helpful and friendly at all times.
Hotel had a free shuttle to the beach, sister hotel (beautiful spa) and the town several times a day but they will also pick you up or drop you off outside the timetable if you ask.
We stayed in a sea view delux room and it was lovely, we had a balcony and yes there are some conifer trees the other side of the road in front of the hotel blocking some of the views but you can still see the sea and to be honest we didn't spend hardly anytime sitting at our balcony, as we were exploring the amalfi coast by boat which give you all the views you could ask for.
The pool and sunbed area is GORGEOUS - Breath taking views of the coast and mountains which is where we spent our time when at the hotel. Lovely pool surrounded by pretty flowers one side, was always clean and tidy.
Food - breakfast was the same food each day however they had a good selection and something for everyone, such as meats, cheeses, fruit, yoghurts, cereal, scrambled egg, bacon and croissants. Nice small eating area inside hotel with a few tables or you could sit outside in the sun - we never felt crowded by other people dining. We ate dinner and lunch a few times in the hotel and the food was lovely.
Our room was cleaned everyday including hovering, mopping the floors, they even tidied our shoes and things so the room looked tidy when we come back from breakfast. Clean towels everyday and they replaced any complimentary shampoo, body soap etc. that you used everyday.
We would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be going again. If you are looking for an exclusive hotel that is not full with loads of guests and has a beautiful scenery with easy access all the local towns and amalfi coast then this is the hotel for you!
