Definitely NOT 4-Star - Really a B and BPosted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: Our room was clean
Cons: Improvements needed: A proper breakfast, working air-conditioning, windows in all rooms, proper recognition this is a B & B - reduce the price!
Location: The location is between Salerno and Sorrento. Very narrow roads. The buses pass by every half hour. Amalfi is nice. Ravello is beautiful.
We were offered a room with no window. After complaining that we couldn't sleep in this hot box without air-conditioning (not working) we were offered a better room. But no way is this a 4 star hotel. It is just about a B and B. The breakfast consisted of coffee (I had to ask specially for tea) and sweet biscuits and cakes. There were some sweet cereals but no eggs, bacon or anything else - just very sweet, cheap, 'cakes' and fruity biscuits. There was a basket of hard rolls presumably from the night before. In order to sunbathe you will have to walk down a very long flight of steps to a piece of concrete with a row of sunbeds laid out (and of course there is then the seemingly even longer trek back up again!). Unfortunately it seems to be an Italian past-time to lay on these from morning till night and talk VERY LOUDLY on the phone - one call after another.... after the seventh call on the trot I gave up and we went out. Going out is another hazardous experience. We hired a car and worried the whole time about being driven into. The roads are narrow and wind around the coast. The Italians drive like maniacs - the bus drivers are some of the worst. Be warned - hire a very thin car! And one more thing ... in typical Italian style the owner rips you off at the end by charging one day extra tax - the day you leave! - with a big smile on his face.

Lovely hotel, great staff, good restaurant.Posted Sep 5, 2013
We stayed 5 nights at Locanda del Fiordo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, the sun decks were great. There was a very nice place to swim with a beautiful inlet/mini-fjord. The staff were helpful at arranging for us to get a scooter for a few days, since it is a 15 minute walk to Praiano (or further to Amalfi). There are other restaurants within walking distance, but the roads can be dangerous to walk on at night, although the drivers seem very cautious. The buses come by often during the day to go to Positano or Amalfi (and beyond). My only criticism of the room was the bathroom was cramped with the bidet, I would have rather had the extra space. In general a great place to stay, especially if you have a car or rent a scooter.

superb locationPosted Aug 16, 2013
Cons: let it stay like this
Location: must do-swim at the beach near the hotel-fiordo del furore-10 minutes walk
we stayed 3 days only at the locanda del fiordo but we plan to go more Every room has beautiful scenery and the private beach at the bottom was outstanding One should mention also the warm hospitality of sinyor Luigi and his family as well as the staff Being between positano and amalfi-ravello one could travel easily which is important as the winding roads cause dizziness after 10 kms. The breakfast was satisfactory and we had a lunch and a dinner also at the locanda -- again very good (never ate anything bad in italy) lets not forget the handy car park of the hotel and the internet connection everywhere-even at the beach downstairs

Wonderful Place with amazing views!!Posted Apr 12, 2013
Pros: Hearing the waves crashing on the rocks below at night while going to sleep!
Location: Midpoint on the Amalfi Coast
We were very pleased with this hotel. When booking online sight unseen you never know what to expect. You know that the pictures posted are showing the best side of the property. The pictures of this hotel don't do it justice!! I chose this hotel because it was about halfway down the Amalfi Coast and figured we could drive half one day and half the next. My Son is in the US Navy stationed in Naples so is used to driving over there and was able to drive us along the Amalfi Coast. We had a quad room and had plenty of room. We had a sliding door that opened up to the ocean below crashing onto the rocks. What a great sound to put us to sleep! The view was amazing! Breakfast the next morning was delicious on a patio with the most amazing views! The staff was helpful and spoke enough english that we all were able to understand each other. As American's you have to remember that European hotels are not as large and spacious as US hotels. Once you accept that you'll realize you're trip will be much more enjoyable! Remember, you're only in your room to sleep, you're in Europe, go see the sights!!

la locanda del fiordoPosted Sep 29, 2012
Pros: the peaceful ambience.
This hotel is clean and well looked after, the solarium decks are excellent, with a jacuzzi on one area. What really makes it outstanding though is the location, absolutely beautiful, and i would recomend the hotel on the strength of this alone.

Perfect for usPosted May 30, 2011
This quiet and romantic villa was just what we were looking for. Off the beaten path but bus stop is literally at villa entrance. Restaurant on site is amazing as well as several more withing walking distance. Owner, Luigi goes out of his way to accomadate any and all needs. The view is spectacular as it looks over the sea with brilliant blue waters beneath you. Bus tickets as well as private transport is available. Positano and Amalfi are just a few minutes bus ride away if you are interested in nightlife or other activities. As with many Italian accomodations, bathrooms are small but adequate. The bed is extremely firm and room is relatively small but very clean. We would highly recommend!
