Magnificent scenery; comfortable accommodation; most friendly, informative and helpful owner / manager.
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.
Friendly staff, great views and excellent food.
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.
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]
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.
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.
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.
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.
good service, beautiful view, wonderful dinners
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.
the building itself is gorgeous and so is the view!
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.
Perfect view, perfect staff, perfect beach, perfect breakfast.
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 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.
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.
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.
The staff were very helpful. The hotel was ideally located close to the beach.
Rooms were lovely and the staff were attentive and efficient. A bit pricey, especially drinks.
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 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!
the hotel is beautiful, staff and service outstanding
Everything, especially the view.
Everything was so perfect!!!! We would visit again!! No, everything was so well organized!!
Beautiful hotel in a breathtaking setting. Fulfilled my bucket list item of staying in a castle as this was built to replicate a fortress. Staff was friendly and service was great. Staying at a hotel with a private beach is worth it in Amalfi! Lots of ants- but expected at a beach hotel
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.
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
good beach , good service , location near Amalfi , good shatale , good food air condiation , and slow / small elevaetors
overvew room. not comfortable hotel
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 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.
Friendly helpful staff. Great views, quiet location. Beautifully kept. Lovely breakfast/restaurant area.Good value for money. If driving yourself the roads in can be a challenge.
Lovely staff, everyone spoke english very well. Although young, the dining room staff were very polished and polite. They gave us some super tips that really added to our pleasure.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good food. Free parking. Bus from right outside the door. We were on the first floor facing the street, so there was some noise from traffic.
The staff are very kind, helpful and pleasant to deal with.
the view and location
We got a room with a huge terrasse and amazing view. Very kind stuff, always attentive, even though in low season. Breakfast quite rich in comparison to other hotels in the area. Room decoration charming. Location between Amalfi and Positano is very good and the parking offered just outside the hotel is very handy. Definitely recommendable.
hotel and staff were faultless i would recommend this hotel
Great family run hotel, staff really cares about their guests, great hotel with very good fixed price dinner for guests, menu changes daily.
The staff was excellent !! Margherita, the owner could not have been nicer. Our room was terrific. What a view !! The food was very good and the location for what we were looking for was great The hill leading up to the hotel is very steep if you have to walk it. How-ever, there is a shuttle service available most of the time.
Hotel staff helpful, attentive, informative,offered on more than one occasion to take us places in the hotel transport with no charge which was beyond the call of duty..Delightful friendly people. We only had dinner one night, the first night, we understand they had a new chef. The food was poor and small portions.They would be well advised to monitor this situation as other guests thought the same and this will lead ultimately to affecting their guest reviews if it does not improve.
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.
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
The views are some of the best we have ever seen from a hotel balcony anywhere in the world. The location is stunning
The attentive staff, location and facilities. N/A
We loved the fantastic ocean view. It was no luxury hotel by any means but nice & comfortable.
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
View, large rooms, great service The mildew on the walls and in bathroom
great location, views, pool / ocean area. parking a huge plus. restaurant well run. i would definetly stay here again.
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.
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.
Hotel staff is very friendly and polite. We can see seaview from room.
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"
The view, the pool and the friendly staff
Fine kinds from number, restaurant and a terrace both very attentive and benevolent personnel No
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.
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.
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.
great location, wonderful views of sunsets
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.
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!
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.
Loved the location and the view of the beach No
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! :)
Friendleness of the staff of shuttle bus service the shuttle bus times could have been a bit more frequent
One of the best hotels we have stayed in and our holiday was an absolute pleasure Nothing
Location and View, restaurant
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!
Excellent customer service.
OUr view from the balcony was amazing!! The pool staff was not very friendly. All the other staff were superb.
Hotel Staff excellent except the pool attendant he had an attitude problem.Food and service excellent. The beds very uncomfortable
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.
The view from our balcony! The beds were uncomfortable, but would still go back there again!
Service from the staff,pleasant,cheerful and very helpful
hotel staff and location
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.
The staff recommended several great restaurants, and also helped set up driver to take us to Pompei. The scenery was magnificent.
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.
The location was nice. Good view from the balcony. The concierge was unfriendly. The concierge seemed upset since we did not use their driver for our travels in Positano. The bathroom toilet and sink were so close you could not sit straight on the toilet.The remote control for the TV only controlled the cable box and not the TV. The rooms were not cleaned very well each day. They never replenished our rooms with clean glasses or removed the used glasses and the floor was not cleaned daily.
Location provided a convenient walk to the town center. Staff was very helpful! Rooms were clean and spacious, but nothing special other than the view. Wifi service was unreliable
great little hotel charming, clean little hotel in an Art filled environment. Centrally located, and helpful staff. Wonderful time there. We will be back.
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.
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.
Positano and the Positea Hotel are hidden gems along the Italian Coast. What a lovely place to spend a few romantic days & evenings taking in the sights, the people of the food of this lovely fishing village upon the rocky coast of Italy. Twin beds pushed together was a little bit of a turn-off, but they were comfortable and we made do.
Loved the balcony and views!! Very comfortable rooms as well.
Fabulous view, clean and tidy rooms, very friendly and helpfull staff Room was not soundproof, heard plumbing and people in other rooms
The hotel has a wonderful staff (family run) and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
The views from the room were amazing. The balcony's were also a great surprise. They were very stingy about towels. They argued with us when we asked for another towel for the room (even though they gave us 1 less towel than the number number of people booked in the room.)
conveniently situated-- friendly helpful staff--
The staff were really helpful. Breakfast was basic but had a great view. Was 10 minute walk to get to Positano and you could catch the bus back up. Great location.
Room and terrace with sea view were exactly as described to us on the website Wish it had a restaurant for evening dining
This is a wonderful easy-going hotel. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast good. The walk to the beach is 10 min and not too steep up-hill back. The room was big enough and the view from the room and breakfast balcony was absolutely lovely! The on-site car parking made it very easy.
The terrace. The location.
The balcony to the room was fabulous - enabling us to thoroughly enjoy the view
thismust be one of the best hotels italy... an experience!
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 staff was incredible No complaints
Beautiful location, lovely old fashioned luxury hotel with amazing views. Great staff, large room and big bathroom. Very much worth the money.
The location The staff is not very helpful, some times slightly arrogant
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
- 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Feasible car parking (but we were in low season). Excellent view from balcony.
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
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 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 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.
Beautiful spot on the Amalfi Coast, and a good choice if you want to be able to walk to town/breach/restaurants/etc.
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
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.
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.
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 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.
Location with fantastic view, excellent place for relax. Nothing!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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 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.
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
Very cental. Easy access to boats for tours.
