I cant fault it

Posted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: everything.
Cons: a really minor point, there could be tea and coffee facility in our room
Location: the whole coastline is amazing and there are many beaches to enjoy. we went on a boat trip to Capri which was a great day out. lovely food also.
This is a beautiful hotel with wonderful staff and facilities. It was our honeymoon and we were made to feel so special by the ladies at reception. Melania, Anna and Flavia were incredibly helpful and we are certain we will be going back. Giuseppe and Lello provided us with transfers and information and advice and they were both very charming. Iwona and Luigi were outstanding at the bar and with food service. The breakfast offers everything you could wish for.

Not a 5 star hotel

Posted Jul 25, 2015
A unglamorous entrance to the hotel. The staff are nice but their communication skills were very disappointing. On a number of occasions when we asked for something they got it wrong or we just waited for a long time. The hotel is really more like a 4 star in our opinion as the facilities our not that brilliant.

Amazing hotel with great service

Posted May 24, 2015
Most amazing hotel. I have travelled to many different places but this hotel is by far the best. It's authentic boutique feel makes you enjoy your stay so much more. The staff made our stay so enjoyable we didn't want to leave. They were superb from the moment we got there until we had to leave. If you're looking for a great relaxing holiday with amazing food (hotel chef is the best) then look no further. I have recommended this to everyone i have spoken to already!

The Hotel is Amazing, the most Beautiful Place!!

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: Everthing! The Food is lovely, the Staff are lovely, the Venue is lovely, the views are Amazing, the hotel is very very clean! It's Very Romantic!
Cons: During our stay we could not fault the Hotel at all.
Location: Maiori is Beautiful & not very touristy, ideal for Honeymoons/Romantic breaks. Nice amount of shops & Restaurants, food is lovely.Try the Lemon walk!
The Hotel, the Staff, the location, the food was just Amazing. We could not have picked a better place for our Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived to the sad moment we had to leave we we looked after through and through. The Hotel's location gives it some of the BEST views in Amalfi. Our room was awesome and cleaned at least once if not twice a day. The staff make this Hotel complete, they were friendly, more than helpful and made us feel so Welcome to Beautiful Maiori. All of the Staff could not do enough for us, probably the most helpful Hotel Stall ever! We strongly urge anyone viewing this Hotel to book it, as veteran reviewers our selves, trust us it's perfect.

Fantastic location and service... but those steps!

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: 1) The position 2) The service and attentive staff 3) The ambience 4) The breakfasts - superb
Cons: 1) Bedroom light switching was slightly mysterious, probably advanced, but maybe too advanced for me 2) Hand held shower 3) Difficult to find
Location: Maiori is well placed to visit the coast (Amalfi Positano) but the coast road is not for the timid driver. Pompei's a must but take an organised tour
The hotel is cut into the side of a high cliff among terraces of lemon trees and is approached by it's own funicular. It has several terraced cactus gardens and an "infinity" pool overlooking the bay. Standing on the terrace or on your balcony the views are unsurpassed. We had a very pleasant stay in the Botanico for my wife's special birthday and the staff couldn't do enough for us. It has an intimate, comfortable feel and breakfast on the terrace was an experience to be remembered. Our room had two French windows leading on to each side of the large wrap around balcony. Hot water is always instantly available and towels and bedding were frequently changed. The staff are obliging and helpful and every whim is attended to, sometimes before you're aware of it yourself. However, I would not recommend it for anyone with a disability or limited mobility, as above the funicular there are a further 74 steps before you reach reception. Thank goodness for the willing help with suitcases. I guess that's the price to pay for the views. The food is excellent, although the main restaurant is expensive. Food is also available on the terrace or in the hotels own pizza restaurant.

super mais!...il faut monter à pied en partie

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: la situation et la vue , les jardins suspendus, le personnel, le petit déjeuner...
Cons: le bruit, mais je ne sais pas comment l'améliorer? surtout les soirées privées de l'hôtel pour lesquelles nous n'étions pas informés.
Location: Quelques immeubles classe Vue extraordinaire!
Excellente vue panoramique de la cote amalfitaine, on perçoit presque 3 grands villages du haut de l'hôtel,. C'est le seul 5 étoiles de Maiori. Bizarrement il s'agit presque d'une maison d'hôtes (de luxe) que d'un vrai hôtel! mais cela a son charme. Le grand point négatif est le fait que cet hôtel organise des mariages tout au long de la semaine (très très bruyants, puisque les toilettes pour les invités ne sont pas loin des chambres et feu d'artifices à chaque noce) donc très bruyant! Le personnel est très sympa, attention fausse impression qu'ils parlent Français, cela aboutit parfois à de désagréables malentendus au restaurant! Clientèle essentiellement Américaine. Ah! le petit déjeuner est extra et gargantuesque. Excellente impression malgré tout.

3 night stay

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Good clean room with large balcony and truly brilliant views over the Amalfi coast. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Signposting to the entrance. Hotel is at top of a hill with no road up. You need to go in thru' road to another hotel and take llift/funicular up
Location: Just off coast road through Maiori. Local twon is nice as a base. Trips by cab to nearby, Amamfi, Ravello etc are expensive but worthwhile
Very happy with the hotel, staff and location. Exceptional views and quality of room and service. Nice swimming pool. Only negative is trouble finding it. Hotel Botanico is halfway up a cliff with no road up. You need to go in through a road to another hotel (Pietra Di Luna) round the back of it and then take llift/funicular up to a further set of steps to get to reception. Havingsaid that any trouble finding it pales into insignifigance when compared to all the positives. I highly recommend this hotel
