          Fantastic location, wonderful views, nice room, good service.

          It's located somewhat far from the town of Amalfi, but the spectacular views made up for this.

          The view

          Lack of transport to and from the town centre. It wouldn't be too much to ask to have a shuttle bus every 30 mins at night.

          • Average rating
            9.6
        • Group of friends

          the only thing good about our whole experience was the shuttle into Amalfi, except even then it only ran till 10:45 am and then not again until 15:30 and last one from town at 18:45. The Sita buis was very convenient and didn't cost too much so that was helpful, but no thanks to the Hotel. The pool and lobby area and view were great,but not much advantage to us since we wanted to be in town. not stuck out at the hotel.

          The rooms were not very nice and we didn't feel taken care of... (see complaints).. but if there is no place for complaints then here it is: the toilet and bidet both were not bolted to the floor and the sink tap sqirted a strem of water directly at you because the faucet was in bad repair. The room was not a "Superior Double Room with Sea View". It was a mediocre room at best, with sea view..

          Fabulous view.

          I found out only after I got there that unless you had booked a dinner plan, you could not eat dinner until 8:30pm. This was very inconvenient as there were no other places in the area to eat.

          The view, the view, the view! The large terrace alone is reason to stay at this hotel. Also, because of its location up in the mountain, the hotel accommodated for this - free daily shuttle bus service to and from the city centre (and the beach), and restaurants, internet available at the hotel.

          Excellent hotel located on the mountain side providing magnificent views over the amalfi coast. Amalfi town is reached in 10 minutes by the hotel shuttle service (free) or by SITA bus (2.4 € one way). The Hotel has a private beach (costs 10 € to visit) - the beach is very nice, but it's recommended to wear shoes/sandals in the water because the pebbles can be uncomfortable when bare-footed.

          The view from the balcony. Pool size

          - Mouldy smell in the corridors. - No Safety box in the room. - Old towels. - Dry bakery goods at breakfast buffet.

          Outstanding views, lots of excellent public areas and really liked the 70's retro feel, (appreciate this may not be to everyone's taste but we thought the dated style gave the hotel character).

          All the staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us/ The food was excellent and always very tasty, the prices were more than reasonable considering its location and I would recommend it to any couple or family. I would definately return to this hotel. 5 Stars!!!

          The only dampner was that one night I wanted to have evening meal in the hotel and we had to wait until 2030 hrs to be fed, I was starving by this point and so almost went elsewhere when the hotel accomodated me with bar snacks that were not on the evening schedule. Very lovely waitering staff!!!!

          The view was the best part of the whole hotel. Very nice pool and good food at the lunchrestaurant. Nice to have a bus shuttle to the beach/town.

          This hotel seemed to be a charter hotel for uk and German people so it could be very crowded sometimes. We didn't try the dinner restaurant, we didn't like the fixed menu.

          Excellent location. Great big room with balcony. The kitch decor of the hotel. The various terraces to have a drink. The private beach (we thought it was going to be a hassle, but it's very easy to take the shuttle and go there - and it's definitely worth it). Staff was nice. Great breakfast on the terrace looking over the bay.

          The only point, which, however is very important to us for this type of establishment, is that the pool is not up to standard. It was dirty (film of grease on the edges), smelt too much of chlorine. We have seen much better pool than this in lower level establishments. This was a disappointment.
