고성에서 하루 지내는 느낌Posted Aug 16, 2015
내부 시설 호텔 서비스는 대박 좋네요. 방에서 보는 풍경도 더할나위 없음. 대중교통으로 가기는 어려워 보입니다. 아말피 해변까지는 셔틀이 다니는데 굳이 이용할 필요 없을듯 프라이빗 비치와 호텔 수영장이 더 나아요.

Beautiful grounds and wonderful front desk, but...Posted Aug 8, 2015
Pros: The view
Cons: Working air conditioning, possibly a small area to purchase water or sodas that is accessible
Location: There's nothing "nearby" except a wonderful restaurant (better food and cheaper)up the road about 100 yards. use the shuttle cabs are 25 euro
We spent the first part of our honeymoon at the Il Saraceno, and were disappointed. The front desk staff was amazing, and assisted us with whatever we needed. Also, the shuttle driver was very friendly and helpful. However some of the other staff were not so friendly. The bar was supposed to be open but whenever we went there just for coffee or even water(very expensive to buy in the hotel and you cannot store bottles in the fridge) they were less than receptive to assist us. The air conditioning did not work, and that was a huge problem. The minute we arrived our room was around 82 degrees. We, along with several othe guests complained, and were told it was supposed to be fixed and there were no other rooms to move to. For hotel situated on the beautiful coast, and with receiving the morning and afternoon sun(without shade) taking a nap in the room was not an option. Also th cleaning staff, who were very thorough, did not adhere to the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door... Which was unsettling. So despite the wonderful desk, and the location we would not stay here again. There are other more modern hotels closer to town than the Il Saraceno, that have working air conditioning.

The view, the view, and the viewPosted Jul 17, 2015
Pros: The view.
Cons: The availability of food, and the condition of the beach area and rooms on the lower levels.
Location: We did nothing but relax at the hotel.
Built into the mountain in the 1960s, it seems like an outdated hotel with few facilities. There are hours every day when you cannot get anything to eat except a snack at the beach or the pool (and there were times when you actually could not get anything to eat during the day). On arrival, my wife and I were given a room in the basement, which had a basement mold/mildew smell, and a plastic coated bedspread. We rejected the room, and thankfully because we book our stay through Expedia, we were given a room two stories higher (there are 5 stories of rooms), and this new room was acceptable (but not anything to write home about). The beach chaises and grounds are not particularly appealing. However, in spite of all these negatives, the views are amazing, the desk clerk was so amazing that we gave him a tip (which we think was generous), most of the wait staff was very nice, the food was good, and we enjoyed our stay. P.S. Driving along the Amalfi coast ia an indescribable experience that anyone likely will either love or hate.

アマルフィを感じることができるホテルPosted Jul 12, 2015
Cons: WiFiが部屋からでは全く通じず、バーに行かないと繋がらないこと 公共バスがあるからいいものの、シャトルのアマルフィからの送迎はもう少し遅い時間まであると良かった
部屋がオーシャンビューでプライベートビーチもついており、想像していたアマルフィを満喫できました。 オーシャンビューのオープンテラスで取る夕食はまた格別でした。 市内からも車で10分くらいの距離ですが、シャトルと公共バスが通っているので不便は感じず、むしろ市内から少し離れプライベート感を味わえたことが良かったです。

Views, Views, Views!Posted Jun 8, 2015
Pros: Grounds and views.
Cons: Meal options could be improved. Rooms were noisy, We had to change rooms because there was an event going on above us, and it was noisy.
Location: Location was not that great. Very difficult getting around.
This area is amazing, once you get past the fear of going off the cliff in your taxi before you get there! Breathtaking views everywhere! Hotel was amazing! Every turn was another picture taking opportunity. Location was a little troubling. I felt trapped. The only real option was to take a shuttle to Amalfi, but they only ran 6 or 7 times a day on the hour. So going to Amalfi by shuttle would mean catching the last shuttle at 8pm to get back. There are always taxi's but we did not feel that adventurous. Restaurant was nice, elegant but it was the same menu for the entire time of our stay. There was a restaurant that you could get to from the beach via a boat taxi which seemed nice. Pool was ok, Beach was nice. A little tricky walking in the pebble sand, but the water was beautiful.

Prima hotel mooie ligging maar ontbijt geen *****Posted Jun 4, 2015
Ontbijt mag uitgebreider voor deze catagorie!! Als je € 3 voor een gekookt eitje extra moet betalen is dat eigenlijk raar voor dit soort luxe hotels.

Nuit à deux sur la côte amalfitainePosted Jun 3, 2015
Superbe hôtel sur la côte, suffisamment éloigné d'Amalfi pour être au calme et avoir une vue superbe.
