“Best hotel of our trip...or ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2011

My husband and I loved staying here. It was hard to get to, but VERY worth it. Excellent service, amazing views, very friendly/helpful staff, great food - a fantastic deal for the price as well. I almost hesitate to write about it as we'd like to keep the secret to ourself in case we come back.
The family that ran the place was very helpful - giving us directions, driving us to and from the beach/nearby Amalfi. They even let us pay them for a drive to Pompeii. The only thing I would advise is to double-check what you agree on if you don't speak Italian. They speak some English, but we found that there were a few miscommunications because of language.
In any case, a great place, we still talk about it being the best hotel we've ever stayed at/best meals we ever had, etc.!

warm welcome, lovely hosts, helpfull with directions and reccomendations, breakfast of fresh italian coffee and crossiants on the terrace overlooking the amazing coast line with the warm amalfi sun each morning i will never forget. Rooms very spacious and clean, we had a balcony overlooking the fuorde, would have liked to stay another week! Oh and the tabacchi up the hill a few hundred meters made the best cappuccinos, well worth a stop :)

After arriving by car (our own right-hand drive) an experience in itself ! .we got the most homely welcome from Pino & Ilaria . The room was just fantastic so quaint and what a view looking out onto the med . The surrounding area of the Amali coast was just as stunning with magnificent views around every turn . Before we set of on a drive each day we would always get advice of were to go and when we went to capri, Pino drove us to and from the cove where we got the boat (be prepared to get wet). Even though we were there for 8 nights never did we get a repeat menu in the evening, the food was outstanding with great service from jonny . Yes a wonderful trip

We had an amazing two week holiday in Amalfi coast and stay in Locand Ripa delle Janare. We stayed there first week together with my husband and his parents and second week with group of friends and everyone enjoyed the stay very much.
It's a beautiful reasonably priced B&B in Furore, a walking distance from Fjordo Furore, where the is a very beautiful small beach with very nice beach restaurant. The hotel owner, Pino and Ilaria are wonderful and they take very good care of us. They also have a very good restaurant, where Pino cooks excellent food. We ate there several nights. There are also very nice wine yards close by with excellent wines. If you have a car, Furore is a good spot to stay and visit Sorrento, Napoli, Capri and the beautiful cities of Amalfi coast. With an extra fee you are able to use the swimming pool of the five star hotel which is located 500m down the hill, we didn't try it though because the beach at Furore was so nice (and cheapest sun chairs as well as best food compared to any beaches close by). We had an amazing holiday in Italy!

We stayed for a week but wish it was more. The hotel owners and staff are really lovely and can't do enough for you. Our room had a balcony with a fantastic view overlooking the fjord, if your scared of heights, don't look down!! The room was lovely and very clean, with fresh linen every day. The breakfast was served on the terrace, as was the eveing meal. We ate here every night as the food was so good. We were glad the hotel did not have a swimming pool or we would never have stirred out and then we would have missed the beauty of the area. We parked the car up for the week and travelled on public transport all the time, once you see the roads you will understand why, but the buses are so good and a day ticket will take you anywhere,there is so much to see. You have a bit of a hike up the hill to the bus stop, but I would recommend that you buy a few bus tickets at a time (you only validate them on the day you use them), this will save you a bus stop as the bar that sells them is a little further up the hill!The cruise to Carpri was beautiful and a must, just be prepared for the crowds. Naples was an experience, if you go by boat make sure you get the early one as the later you leave it the less time you have there. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone who wants peace and quiet, good food, good company, lovely views and great owners and staff. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Pino and Illaria run this charming bed and breakfast and make every moment spent there an absolute pleasure. They are personable and kind and willing to help their guests with everything from finding a place to eat (though I recommend staying at the Janare because the food is outstanding!), driving guests to Amalfi for a day trip, making delicious coffee in the morning and everything else in between. The rooms are beautiful, with gorgeous Italian tiles and large bathrooms. Each room overlooks the sea and the lemon trees that grow in the gardens of the b&b. The breakfast is simple but tasty and the menu for each evening is carefully chosen and prepared by Pino and his sous chef. The prices are very reasonable considering the quality and flavour of the food you get. A meal for two with lots of wine will cost around 30 Euros. But what really makes this place special is the family that runs it. Illaria and Pino are the sweetest people and when you are a guest at their b&b you feel more like family than a visitor. I would recommend that anyone going to the Amalfi Coast stay at Locanda Ripa delle Janare and I know that, like me, you won't want to leave!

This B & B (with optional, delicious, very reasonably-priced dinner) is located overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Pino and Illaria - the couple who run the establishment - made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make us comfortable throughout our stay. The guests were of various nationalities and ages, and it was possible to maintain privacy, or mix and mingle - whatever we chose. The rooms all have a sea view, private bathrooms and are kept immaculately clean. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and we left after 6 nights wishing that we could stay much longer. We are determined to return one day.
