Pino is the best host possible. He and his family make you as if you are part of their family. His father is in the kitchen and every meal was splendid. The room had a fabulous view of the sea and the upgrade to the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom was perfect. Parking was on site with a security gate. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.
The owner Pino is a wonderful man, who couldn't do enough to help. His father is the cook and the food was absolutely fabulous.
Magnificent scenery; comfortable accommodation; most friendly, informative and helpful owner / manager.
Friendly staff, great views and excellent food.
beautiful setting, lovely people the internet was out when we were there no lift [though it was only 2 flights of stairs, with suitcases, that's not pleasant]
We stayed there for 4 nights. Nice setting, amazing views from the terrace. The restaurant is superb, and the staff very friendly and handy. Breakfast was nice too. Location is good even without a car, although it is not very convenient if you want to visit Positano. Bus to Amalfi right at the door. We loved our stay there and would definitely stay there again.
In spite of the visit being off-season, the hotel was accommodating and helpful regarding any of the things we requested. The sea-view room was bright and spacious. English is spoken, helpful to those whose Italian is not great. The reviews of the hotel seem to fairly represent the property. I'm not sure the restaurant was up to the standard expected. Some of the seafood seemed to be previously frozen but not indicated as such on the menu. The dishes inluded way too much oil, way beyond even what is anticipated at a "greasy spoon" restaurant. The light fish filet with bread crumbs was a soggy mess.
The breakfast was good.We had to change our reservation from 3 nights to one night.The approach of the hotel staff was good. The hotel is located in the mountain and not suitable for the visit of Amalfi and Positano.Nothing to do there.Just a view of a good sea.That's all.
amazing view of the sea, great staff (we had to switch our booking after we arrived and the staff was understanding, let us use their computer, and suggested other hotels on the coast), tour buses come right to your door...excellent price for the Amalfi coast It was more isolated than I bargained for, as you can't walk easily to anything! If you want to simply relax on site and take bus tours of the coast this is perfect...the dinner was a little expensive, taste was just ok although presentation was excellent.
The artistic decor, the fantastic view and the individual privacy. It was very scary getting to it - 480 ft directly above sea level - via hairpin bends.
This was a one night stay to meet up with friends before travelling further south. The restaurant was really good, staff friendly. The room was ok with a sea view and small terrace. The complementary pack of lemon biscuits was a nice touch.
good service, beautiful view, wonderful dinners
overvew room. not comfortable hotel
The hotel has a great location, and the free parking is a plus in this area. that is about it!!! They even charge your to use the internet, what first class, or like you rate it 5 star charges a guest to use the internet in 2010. You rated this hotel 5 stars, it is not!!! Maybe the location, but not facilities or amenities of a 5 star hotel. It does not even have a real blow dryer. you cannot use any electrical converters in the bathroom, and there are no mirrors in the bedroom. It has a small tv, real old, from a museum, the safe has a key, old fashion key, not electronic like a real safe, and it is inside the refrigerator, which means, every time you want to use the safe, you have to open the small refrigerator, which does not work when you leave the room, since you need to insert a key for the electricity to work inside the room. no robes, slippers, plastic cups... no proper hangers for your clothes. I would not recommend this hotel. Maybe as a 2 or 3 star
Everything, especially the view.
different Radio doesnt work in the room. NZ$500 per night should be 5 star but not. All Italian TV. Only BBC in english. Sky do have english programs. Small 15 inch TV 50 ft away from viewing??NO Tea or Coffe/milk/ electric jug facilities like in 99% of hotels/motles in NZ. Not value for money. No service. Only if you ask for it. At the pool/ would you like another or food or is everything o'k. Only stay for one night just for the look.
Everything was so perfect!!!! We would visit again!! No, everything was so well organized!!
good beach , good service , location near Amalfi , good shatale , good food air condiation , and slow / small elevaetors
The hotel staff, especially the reception staff were very helpful and expalined the whole layout etc of the hotel on arrival. To get a full picture of the hotel you have to view this from the sea which is breathtaking Location is isolated & the nearest main centre was a cab drive away. Courtesy buses were provided but times to & from hotel were limlited to early morings or early evening. The resturant staff & breakfast staff were not very helpful or freindly. In the evening we took a meal at the resturant. Once seated I noticed a smashed glass under the table, but the staff just shrugged their shoulders.
Great accomidations. I was looking for comfort and a great view after touring Italy for two weeks. A place to relax. I found through research most hotels offer one or the other not both. Saraceno offered great views from the rooms up on the hill as well as great beach location. Food was good, bar open late till 12 midnight. If your looking for peach and quite this is the place. The cabs are expensive in Amalfi. Look into hotel shuttle. It is accomidating to use.
the hotel is beautiful, staff and service outstanding
the castle looks so dramatic, particulary looking back up from the beach. I didnt expect the lovely gardens and pots of flowers on the balconies which really added to it. it was over our budget so we only stayed 1 night in partial seaview, but laying in bed I could see the ocean, and the stars. I would reccomend it even if its a bit out of your price range just stay one day its worth it!
Rooms were lovely and the staff were attentive and efficient. A bit pricey, especially drinks.
Very clean, nice and comfortable room and staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast at this hotel and service great. Great central location in Positano, near to city bus and coastal buses. Good value for the money. No.
It was an excellent location, and we loved the view overlooking the town and the street action below. The staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was just fine.
The staff were very helpful. The hotel was ideally located close to the beach.
We loved our private terrace with views of the village of Positano and the ocean. We liked being in the middle if the bustle of daily life. Our short walk to the town center and beach was appreciated. Enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace. Staff at Savoia were very friendly and helpful. Small shower stall.
Perfect view, perfect staff, perfect beach, perfect breakfast.
the staff, the bed, the view and the location for the cost the room was to small, no room to put your luggage or sit comfortable.
The view was amazing - but this was after we paid an up charge to get a view with a balcony. The Sea View that was booked originally - you had to really stand on something to see it.
The hotel was spacious and restful. There were many guests staying but it was never at all crowded. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. It is beautifully located and the flowers and plants are a major contribution to peace and enjoyment. Delicious, unhurried breakfasts on the terrace overlooking Amalfi town were memorable. We thought that the all white decor with little furniture and no colour was severe.
Absolutely everything! Staff were fantastic, food in the restaurant amazing. Buffet breakfast fantastic, especially sitting out on the terrace overlooking the spectacular view. They went above and beyond our expectations, highly recommend staying here!
the building itself is gorgeous and so is the view!
Loved the location and the view of the beach No
The location offers stunning views of Positano. The hotel staff were very welcoming and efficient and the room, although slightly dated, was very comfortable and quiet at night. We used a car which was collected and dropped off at the hotel for us whenever we needed it. We didn't eat an evening meal in the hotel but the breakfasts were delicious! All in all a very relaxing stay. make sure you don't get a room next to the lift!
One of the best hotels we have stayed in and our holiday was an absolute pleasure Nothing
Location and View, restaurant
Excellent customer service.
Friendleness of the staff of shuttle bus service the shuttle bus times could have been a bit more frequent
OUr view from the balcony was amazing!! The pool staff was not very friendly. All the other staff were superb.
It was a beautiful hotel tucked away in the cliffs of Positano. The views were magnificant I didn't like that we had to leave! :)
Hotel Staff excellent except the pool attendant he had an attitude problem.Food and service excellent. The beds very uncomfortable
The location and views are outstanding Food in restaurant is mediocre. The "King SIze" bed in the junior suite is, in fact, two single beds moved together - not the same thing at all.
Everything - we visited the hotel to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary & were not disappointed. The scenery & location was perfect. The hotel staff were fantastic throughout our stay ; the local food & wine were excellent. The best endorsement for the hotel is to say that we intend to return next year ; am looking forward to it already. Nothing ; however beware if you do not like climbing stairs as there are quite a few throughout the hotel.
It was one of the most interesting hotel set ups I have had. The hotel was built into a cliff so there was beautiful views throughout. The staff could have had more "life"
Location of the hotel is wonderful. It is like a dream. The only problem is the mosquitoes or small bugs that bite. Hotel management should leave some repellent in the room before any client request.
great location, wonderful views of sunsets
Fabulously located right on the cliff overlooking the Amalfi coastline yet far enough removed from the crowds to feel as if it your very own piece of heaven. Staff were very friendly, especially the barman and the restaurant staff. The terrace overlooking the bay was the perfect place for sundowners! Particularly liked being able to swim off their beach and sunbathing platform. We had excellent meals here, the pasta with seafood baked in foil was the best ever! Food was not overly expensive as some other reviewers had mentioned. Lifts that transported you down through the rock from the hotel to the beach below have to be experienced! I felt very safe even though I really don't like heights as the lifts were modern and enclosed. A minor gripe, because the place and the people were so lovely.....Soft mattress toppers and soft pillows would go a long way towards a more comfortable sleep! Our room had a balcony from where we could hear the sea on the rocks below as we drifted off. A softer bed would have been bliss!
A beautiful location, conveniently situated between Amalfi and Positano with a service-minded staff. Good restaurant and nice public spaces. Not suitable for wheelchair access.
The view, the pool and the friendly staff
The view and vistas were great The comfort of the bed was awful. We stayed in room 152 and the bed was hard and sagged in the middle. It is hard to understand how a hotel as eloquent and upscale as this has beds that should be in a hotel for half the price. Upgrade your beds.
Fine kinds from number, restaurant and a terrace both very attentive and benevolent personnel No
The location was exceptional. I loved being on the edge of the cliff. The ability to go down to the pool and/or swim in the Mediterranean sea was so exciting. We had probably the nicest room, end with the largest balcony it was perfect. We had rented a car and the signage from either direction was the best. The entrance (at the road level ) was unimpressive. But I don't think you can change that because the whole excitement of the hotel is the location on the cliffside. The distance into the main part of town was easily walkable and fun, although there was a shuttle service we didn't use it. Getting to the town of Almafi is not ideal if you need to use the ferry or bus (especially if its not high season). We had to take a taxi ride to Salerno for 100 euros in time to catch the train to Rome to make it to the airport in time. However we had time to take the ferry from Salerno to Almafi for 6 Euros each for 35 minutes, which was ideal and fun. (no worries about driving the coastline road.
The view from our room and all over the hotel was incredible. We loved being very close to Amalfi (10 min walk) but not directly in town. The staff was very nice and attentive and knowledgeable. The pool decks built into the cliff were an amazing place to hang out for the day. The bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world but it was fine and made up for by the rest of the hotel
great location, views, pool / ocean area. parking a huge plus. restaurant well run. i would definetly stay here again.
We loved the fantastic ocean view. It was no luxury hotel by any means but nice & comfortable.
The attentive staff, location and facilities. N/A
The views are some of the best we have ever seen from a hotel balcony anywhere in the world. The location is stunning
Hotel staff is very friendly and polite. We can see seaview from room.
The staff and service was nice. I liked the pool alot. The price for any hotel in Europe is very expensive for what you receive in the USA. I was surprised they did not have any pugs to convert US powered electronics to Italian (all other hotels we stayed at did). The walk from the hotel to Amalfi proper although not that far could be harzardous due to limited side walks on the windy street plus walk through the traffic tunnel. Needs shuttle servic
Fantastic location, having superb views over Amalfi and its harbour. Good sunbathing facilities and access to swimming in its sea water pool or the sea. Good views from bedrooms as well as public rooms. Good variety in its restaurant. The staff were extaordinarily helpful and professional The standard rooms only have small balconies, some of which are enclosed. Neither your site or that of the hotel indicate this difference between standard and superior rooms.
There was a pool and access to the sea. Location. Timings of mini-bus shuttle service into town were not useful.eg.drop off for lunch but no pick up later.
View, large rooms, great service The mildew on the walls and in bathroom
The location was amazing. Every view from every angle was beautiful. The dinning room staff was also great. The hotel staff (outside of the dinning room) couldn't have been less helpful or less knowledgeable. They could have also used a 24 hour menu.
Loved the hotel & especially enjoyed the private terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean. Hard to find such a good breakfast in Italy. Bus stop located in front of the hotel.
Staff were great. Very helpful. We had a very large terrace with probably one of the best views in the world. Cannot think of anything.
Service from the staff,pleasant,cheerful and very helpful
The views Their arrangements regarding parking
The staff recommended several great restaurants, and also helped set up driver to take us to Pompei. The scenery was magnificent.
Staff was helpful and kind, especially for Italians. Arranged car to transfer us to/from Naples train station. Location was a little high up in the town. It made the trek to/from city center and the beach quite long and arduous. Still, easier to access than other hotels.
Rooms were as they were depicted; clean and fresh. Staff were very helpful in recommending excellent restaurants and taxi service made the evenings out so enjoyable as we could both enjoy wine with our meals. In room Internet was not working which meant we had to go to the lobby for access. This was a disappointment.
hotel staff and location
We absolutely loved the view...it was wonderful to have when you wake of a morning! A man at Reception was not pleasant upon arrival (he was not wearing a name badge) and it did not make us feel welcome which was unfortunate being our honeymoon. As a travel agent I was quite disappointed.
This Hotel was really beautiful : nice furnitures, typiacally italian. The terrasse for the breafast was great with the view on Amalfi and the sea
Helpful staff Very basic accomodation for the cost
The location was excellent. Seaside and right in town for conveniences. Traveling with my 85 year old mother and she uses a wheelchair. This hotel was very accommodating for her. Nothing
excellent location and facilities. quiet, comfortable, spacious and convenient. Helpful staff no complaints at all
Convenience to public transportation in a town full of steps. Lovely breakfast room with view and helpful in suggesting smaller, less touristy restaurants. Although on a busy street facing the harbor, my room was quiet at night, which was a bonus. I would go back.
It is close to the beach and in the middle of town. The room had sea view, and the price was reasonable. New doors to the balcony kept the sun and noise outside, the room was totally dark at night so we slept very well. Breakfast at a beautiful terrace.
friendly helpfull staff
I stayed in one of superior double rooms. It was spacious and had beautiful view and a jacuzzi. Breakfast was fair, and I liked cappucino.
Location was great - the breakfast area overlooked Amalfi beach and the hotel was so close to the bus and ferry terminals. The room was spotlessly clean and staff were very friendly.
Helpful staff. Good breakfast. Great location. Even though the hotel faces a busy street, when you close the french doors and shutters, it is very quiet.
The ambiance and decor are delightful - this place has a lot of character, and it's location is onvenient for Minori (though the attractions of this small village are limited mainly to its location). Parking is very difficult and the hotel's parking garage is very expensive and rather inconvenient to use. Our room was charming but extremely small and not very well laid-out. The toilet facilities were rather inconvenient. Under the circumstances, I think it represents rather limited value for money;
Staff helpful, room clean, good location in minori. Had to pay 20 euros per day to park the car. Wouldn't go half board next time as dinner was nothing special.
View from room, Friendly and helpful staff, Good food, For this area a larger than normal swimming pool and sun terrace Little infrastructure in village
- great view from breakfast area. - nice location - parking available - breakfast had fresh orange juice - Staff were super rude, very abrassive. Asked to maintain passports pretending they were immigration or something. - rooms are tiny, and view are obstructed. They said room with a view, but in reality it was facing a wall... had to stick your head off a balcony to catch a glimpse - flies on food. - overpriced.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The view from our terrace of the ocean and Positano was absolutely beautiful. I would go back again. The price of the room for 3 was more than I wanted to spend. I stayed in Rome and Florence in comparable 4 star hotels that were 100 Euros less.
Feasible car parking (but we were in low season). Excellent view from balcony.
The level of service is excellent Some reception staff not very well informed about local information such as bus timetables and whether tickets can be bought on the bus or not, and opening times of major attractions. Other reception staff were very well informed.
A charming and friendly hotel - not 'grand' or 'international' but just right. It felt like we were staying in Italy on the Amalfi Coast rather than in an anonymous chain hotel which could be anywhere. Fantastic views over towards Capri and along the Amalfi coastline from the dining rooms and the bedrooms overlooking the sea. Spending time at the Tramonto D'Oro was a seriously enjoyable experience. The swimming pool was not yet full of water and therefore not usable, but that was probably just because it was still a bit early in the season. It did not affect us but it might have affected a family with kids.
Very relaxing its probably best to go through the week rather than on the weekends. They have a lot of wedding recepitions and general parties on the weekend, but during the week is is much calmer
An excellent hotel, well positioned on the Amalfi Coast. Fabulous view and sunrise/sunsets. Romantic area and an excellent Restaurant. The Service was first Class and the staff and owners really care about their clients. Would certainly return and tell others about it ! Loved everything, but wi-fi would be good. Having said that, there is an internet cafe 200metres down the road. A poster on the hotel reception indicating the same, showing opening hours etc.
We loved the family feel of the hotel and were very impressed to see Grandma still had an important role interacting with the guests....excellent food!!
Fantastic hotel run by a family who really cares about their guests. Magnificant outlook from dining room. We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this hotel and will recommend to our friends.
It takes a long drive along a winding road to reach this hotel, but you are rewarded with a gorgeous view from the top floors (restaurant, swimming pool, some of the rooms) on the coast line towards Positano. Rooms are clean, well equipped, not very large. Staff is friendly and correct. Parking is always a challenge in a spot like this, but hotel staff will be neatly shuffling around cars for you. The restaurant offers a wide range of the usual Italian dishes, decent food, but not spectacular. If you stay longer and are looking for a dinner alternative we can highly recommend the Hosteria "il Pino", some 400 metres down the main road. No free Wifi
The extremely pleasant and multilingual staff worked tirelessly to ensure our stay a positive experience. Our room was spotlessly clean each day, the size and condition of the room surprisingly good, and the large balconies overlooking the Mediterranean were incredible. Due to availability at the end of the season, they upgraded us to the mini-suite at no charge. This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. nothing.
Cleanliness No Wi Fi Internet access
The staff was helpful and friendly, location excellent, only 5 minutes from the free beach (approximately 150 steps). Our room had sea view (it was a superior room) which was beautiful, very much worth the price we paid. Breakfast was excellent, not just sweet things, but fresh vegetables and fruits, and bread.
The staaf was very kind' The rooms are big and comfortable, The view marvelousץ
The free parking was very nice since it is difficult to park in the area.The local bus was easy to use to visit nearby towns. The hotel was very quiet at night and the rooms spotless. The views from the rooms were spectacular.I definitely would go back. The only down side was the hotel didn't have a restaurant for dinner. But the hotel staff was very helpful in suggesting local restaurants. They even came to pick us up and brought us back to the hotel after dinner free of charge.
Great views from the rooms and parking is worth its weight in gold in this area, being in between the "main" hubs in the area Positano and Amalfi was a bit more relaxed and well positioned to visit either.
View Location a bit far from activity
The view from our room was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed sitting on our own terrace and watching the boats as well as the Amalfi Coast. Also, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. No, we thought it was a very good value for the money.
relaxe and look around in the area No
Loved the room and the location, tho a bit out of the way, i liked that about it. Had own private beach so didn't have to go to public beach which was always way crowded. Loved the terraces and the views. A lovely place and recommend to all. Would have been nice to have a small refrigerator in the room due to it being out of the way. It would have helped to have some snacks since the hotel did not have full time restuarant.
the ambience of the hotel was magical and the staff were friendly helpful and so hospitable. the view from the bedroom was stunning. and the terrace off th ebedroom was a lovely spot to sit and relax at
Location with fantastic view, excellent place for relax. Nothing!
Beautiful spot on the Amalfi Coast, and a good choice if you want to be able to walk to town/breach/restaurants/etc.
Great hotel with wonderful views. Staff were very helpful. Also, hotel offers free boat trips, great bonus. Bathrooms are very small and showers are too tiny.
The view, the terrace, the cocktails and dinner, the manager and hostess, the breakfast. The staff was helpful. Was nicely furnished. The matress and the pillow.
The view from our room was fantastic, the buffet breakfast was also quite impressive there was a lot to choose from. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel did not offer a shuttle service down to beach. Bringing luggage down to the ferry was also quite difficult so we had to pay a porter to do it. This should really be included in the price of the accomodation.
The hotel was extremely clean and well looked after. Not luxury but very professionally run and very neat and tidy. All staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. A very good atmosphere and a real pleasure to stay in.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were very polite and friendly. They made us feel very welcome. There was a very pleasant atmosphere in the hotel.
I liked the location and the hotel staff.The owners were wonderful and very helpful. It was noisy.
This was the second time we have stayed at the hotel and being a family-run business it has the ideal mix of friendliness, helpfulness and peace that one wishes for in this ideal location.` We found our bedroom rather noisy as it was situated below the kitchens. We asked to change the room but as the hotel was fully booked it was not possible. Whilst slightly annoying to be woken at 6am it did not deter us from enjoying our holiday.
The staff were outstanding, helpful and very pleasant. They made our stay most pleasurable. Our view was a little crowded out by a large terrace interfering with our vista.
thismust be one of the best hotels italy... an experience!
Wonderful Hotel Santa Catarina! We stayed 5 years ago on our honeymoon and this time it was just as wonderful Fantastic staff, fabulous views - pure luxury. Just one complaint the drinks were horrendously expensive!
Impeccable service. courteous, professional and helpful staff; nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is beautifully located with fabulous views and you can park in front!! Noisy and uneven heating (I suppose it works better as air conditioning)
The location The staff is not very helpful, some times slightly arrogant
Beautiful location, lovely old fashioned luxury hotel with amazing views. Great staff, large room and big bathroom. Very much worth the money.
The staff was incredible No complaints
everything. beautiful, great staff, wonderful food, and those views! no
The views were amazing, the rooms were spacious and the pool area made the holiday, being able to jump right into the sea from the platform was great. Was very expensive for the area, we checked out other places and felt like they would have been better value for the money.
Hotel practically built-in to the rock, has several splendid terraces over viewing gorgeous Amalfi coast. Booking of sea view room is highly recommended. Good and various breakfast, friendly staff, very convenient deep water swimming area. Nothing to complain.
Excellent location in Amalfi - close to amenities, restaurants, boats and buses. Staff particularly helpful. A comfortable hotel. We would definitely go back and met a number of 'returners' which speaks volumes! Breakfasts could have been more exciting, but were ample. One suggestion - useful to have chairs on the balconies of rooms?
close proximity to the centre of town and bus terminus. View from our balcony and window over the small harbour. Menu changed every night. No
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the view from the hotel over the marina was soothing and the town center was a 5 min walk along the prominade.
Very cental. Easy access to boats for tours.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Advice regarding day trips etc. was freely given and time was taken to help with our queries. The night staff were excellent and a credit to the hotel. While the hotel was clean and I do appreciate that it is in an expensive area, it is relatively old fashioned and overall the value for money was not very good. In recessionary times I feeel that there is a need for all hotels to look at these matters and reduce prices. The Amalfi coast hotels are not immune to this fact.
location was good,sea wiev balconies perfect. breakfast was poor,old fashion rooms but clean.Don't go there in November because all restaurants closed.
The location was fantastic and the room was large. The staff at the reception desk were very helpful. The breakfast buffet had the same things every day. Some variety would be nice.
The ambience of the hotel is really homely and unique. The bed was more comfortable than bed at home. The view from terrace at Breakfast (which was hearty) was awesome. The free internet was appreciated. No complaints, everything was great. Maybe just provide a more detailed map to guests.
Nice view of the ocean and Amalfi coast. It was a bit difficult to find the location by car. continental breakfast was only average.
This is a very nice 3 star hotel, situated in a 5 star location! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place. Only one gripe! The breakfast, although a variety was offered, it never differed in the week we stayed. I can get very bored of ham & cheese, cerals and bread rolls.
Relaxed and spent some time exploring the Amalfi Coast. We alternated between relaxing at the hotel and taking day trips to nearby points of interest. No complaints.
Excellent. Thank you Casa Angelina.
An incredible location, amazingly helpful staff and a totally relaxed environment. The all white interior can feel a little bit sterile. The food was good but not exceptional.
Service at the pool needs improving, especially given the fact the hotel was fully booked: not enough chairs, towels were usually unavailable and tables were left to clear up until end of day.
The staff of the hotel were exceptionally and, I think, genuinely friendly. This was crucial in creating a very comforting and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel restaurant was top-notch. A sumptuous menu combined with very good wines and excellent service provided a dining experience of very high quality. The staff at reception was a bit short on knowledge of activities and related information. This was exacerbated by the dogged presumption that all guests are first-time visitors to the Amalfi Coast. As someone who has previously visited the Coast on multiple occasions, though not Praiano where the hotel is situated, this was rather frustrating. Staff would be better to (1) listen and be attentive, and (2) assume that guests at such a hotel are seasoned travellers.
The whole experience was a highlight of a month long trip! The position, the view, the design, the staff (they really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and their attention to detail was exceptional), the service, the food, the semi-private beach all made it a very special place! Also the hotel very kindly upgraded us at check-in which enhanced the experience further. Pillows - no down/feather pillows were available
Hotel, service, views, food, amazing! rooms pretty small and lacking privacy but rest of hotel amazing
the view is absolutly amazing and i like the minimalist style of the hotel
The staff were amazing!
Everything. food was good. Staff great and very friendly. Nice relaxed atmostphere and the beach is fab. Balcony chairs could've been a bit more comfortable and the speration between balconies higher to give more privacy.
