We spent 6 fabulous days on the most etraordinary location of the amalfi coast. What else need to be said?
Lots of Tripadvisor writers complain about this and that. Question of standards! Yes , by American standard, the hotel rates poor. Weak internet, average service, no gym, and so on. But by Italian standards, it rates perfect!
The rocky beach is a gem, the staff there friendly. And there is a delicious little restaurant, which doesn't belong to the hotel, serving marvellously fresh seafood. Ask the guys at the beach to call for the little boats to will bring you to the nearby harbour, a jewel called conca dei marini, where you can have lunch or diner in the most unique setting, right on the sea.
For me it was paradise.
For the american lady who spent her day complaining to the concierge about the slow internet and the impossibility of getting 4 keys for her room, it seemed hell.
Just a question of standards!
