Brilliant rooms with breathtaking views.
Posted Jan 2, 2013
Pros: The view and the room was amazing.
This hotel is awesome. It's a little bit off the beaten track, but it was just perfect for what I was looking for. I had my own little rent car and wanted to see many sites north, south and west of the area. The staff are friendly and the food is good. We intended to stay for 2 nights but ended up with 5. Breakfast is great, don't miss an espresso by their awe inspiring coffee machine.

Not what you see in the picture

I was entrice by the pictures. But was disappointed by the view from my room. I have room a sea view room. What I got was a container port view room. In fact, I have booked 4 rooms all of the rooms have port views, and whole night was the trucks noice going in and out. If I was to book this hotel again I would make sure, I am getting a whole seaview room. Plus, there is a road construction which make getting in to this hotel very difficult. The service from the Staffs is very good and helpful.
Lloyds Baia Saturday Night - AVOID
Posted Jan 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
I was one of a group of 4 women returning from a cruise docked in Salerno, so this location seemed perfect for a one night stayover. We also were ecstatic to find that this village is the Mecca for those who love Italian Ceramics, and we spent all day Saturday shopping in the 100s of small shops close to the hotel. The hotel is a little dated, but really lovely with the tiled floors, nice bathrooms, small balconies overlooking the bay. A continental type breakfast is included. All was well until 12 midnight. Evidently during the summer, each Saturday night is DISCO night and I can tell you it was AWFUL. The music BLASTS from midnight until 5:30 am. Because the temperature was about 90 and the AC was turned off (by management) we had opened the window to try to get a breeze, but had to close it because of the noise (barely helped). Makes for a terrible night's sleep, I can tell you, and even though our room was many levels above the beach, the sound was incredibly loud. The hotel staff were kind of "well, that is what it is", and I am sure that all of their guests must complain. This event is actually put on by the hotel. Even though I had read about this in many other reviews nothing can really prepare you for the bombardment of noise during the time when most people want to sleep. So I give this place a THUMBS DOWN if you are there on a Saturday during the summer. Otherwise, it would be nice, particularly if you like good values on Italian Ceramics.

Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The location was great and the private beach was perfect.Rooms were clean and comfortable with own balconey. The food in the resteraunt was excellent. We had a few issues, on arrival we were informed that there was charges to use the private beach and they felt we should know this. This should be on the website as it was the prviate beach that swung our decision. The management did come to an arrangement with us after we argued the point. We were informed for both the beach and resteraunt that we did not need to reserve a place but on arrival to both places told the table/ areas with a view were reserved. After discussion to staff both were deat with. We had long waits for food at the resteraunt and one night over an hour and we had still not got a starter having enquired twice if there was a problem. We left and spoke with reception. Staff and management were very apologetic and went above and beyond to compensate for the inconvenience.Overall experience was good and would go back to this hotel

I spent 34days in Italy and this was the best stay of my visit by far. The hotel is beautiful, the staff english is not 100% but good enough to get by; the breakfast is very good, and the location is amazing. You do not need t stay right in Amalfi as this place has an amazing private beach and is located close to a small village. The village has very friendly people and very nice shops and restaurants. I wish that someday I can go back.

Location: Great near Vietri and bus routes
Our rooms were spacious and overlooked the sea with a nice verandah which we enjoyed. The foyer was grand.The breakfast room was great with many choices. It was diasppointing that we had to pay additional money to go to the beach each day it should have been included in the hotel rate. The hotel itself and especially the carpets in the corridors where very dirty. The other disappointment was the fact that they had music from the beach on the week-end till early in the morning. This loud music made it impossible to sleep at night as our room was facing the beach. Weshould have been told about this.

A perfect stay if...

This Hotel has a nice style and was perfectly located for our needs: beautiful views, convieniently short walks to Vietri sul Mare and short rides to Salerno. It can be a perfect stay if you make sure that you do not have a room directly below any of the ballrooms (which are on level -1). The sound insulation of the hotel is not good, you are pretty much guaranteed to not sleep if there is a party (which is the case frequently). The rest, room size and quality, breakfast etc. was o.k.

Good, but lacking in the details

We just spent 9 nights at the Lloyds Baia Hotel in Vietri sul Mare. The hotel hangs onto a cliff overlooking the sea, and has its own private beach and elevator to the beach. We got a larger than normal room with a king bed and a cot since there were three of us. The room was nicely finished and the beds were comfortable. There were a couple of downsides. First off, the hanging shower in the tub leaked like mad at the connection, and more importantly, the plastic holder for the shower head was half broken off, which made it difficult to keep the shower head up in the shower position. The other issue was with the phone. The "message" light was always on and there was no way to turn it off. We asked for wake-up calls several days, but never received them, although the Front Desk said that they called and no one answered. On the Tuesday of our stay I asked the Front Desk to fix the shower and phone, and they said that they would, but no one ever came during our stay. The other downside of the hotel is that the Front Desk staff were often nearly rude with us, perhaps because they spoke little English. The breakfasts were the usual for tourist hotels in the region - acceptable but uninspired. It appeared that most of the guests were Italians who were there to use the beach. There were surprisingly few other non-Italian guests. The hotel is a few minute walk to Vietri and a 10 minute bus ride to Salerno. Overall, the hotel wasn't bad, but it could have been better.

I personally wouldnt visit this hotel for a beach holiday or for a long time. We had been on the Amalfi coast for a week and spent the night there before catching the train from Salerno. Staff helpful, great breakfast which was included.Room great. Nice views one way over the coast, our room was over the port which I didn't mind.It was quiet. Beautiful terrace. Pool empty and in need of alot of work. It was a nice place to stay. It is a 500m walk from Vierti Sul mare.
