Schönes Hotel im Burgstil mit traumhaftem BlickPosted Oct 14, 2015
Pros: Die Lage, das Zimmer und der Strand
Cons: Das Frühstück entspricht eigentlich nicht einem Grand Hotel. Keine Spezialitäten, wie Büffelmozarella, Prosciutto Crudo oder Cotto!
Location: Lage ca. 5 km vor Amalfi, Morgens und Abends stündlich einen Busshuttle nach Amalfi, Schiffsausflüge nach Capri, etc., schöne Wanderrouten
Zwei wöchiger Aufenthalt im Hotel zur Entspannung und als Startpunkt für Tagesausflüge an der "Costa Amalfitana". Das Hotel ist spektakulär als Burg in den Felshang gebaut mit Fahrstuhl zum Pool und zum Strand. Die Frühstücksterasse liefert eine phantastische Nah- und Fernsicht über die Amalfiküste und Bucht von Salerno.

직원들 친절한지는 잘 모르겠어요Posted Oct 10, 2015
직원들이 별로 친절하진 않았어요. 몇몇 직원이 무뚝뚝하고 뭐 물어보면 말 끊으면서 단답형으로 대답하는데 기분 나빴습니다. 아말피에서만 셔틀 다니긴하는데 시간대가 한정적이어서 렌트하지 않으면 불편해요. 해변에서 수영하려고 예약했는데 시타버스가 안와서 결국 못했네요. 시설은 나쁘지 않았어요. 조식은 뭐 5성급 호텔치고 그다지..그냥 평범했습니다.

Great view but in need of renovationPosted Oct 10, 2015
This hotel is advertised as a 5 star facility but in my opinion is more like a lower 4 star hotel. The hotel was built 45 years ago and is dire need of renovation. The beds, towels, soaps, shampoo, furniture and everything else in the hotel are really cheap and of lower quality. The view from the hotel is fantastic but its location is not convenient. The hotel is approximately 2 miles from Amalfi and you will need to use the hotel shuttle for transportation to Amalfi and your return to the hotel (taxis are really expensive). The shuttle service is limited and you will need to plan your day ahead. On the positive side, the hotel staff was really nice and helpful.

Very small room, rundown furnishings, rude staffPosted Oct 4, 2015
Lovely view of ocean, but room was worse than a 3 star. Waiters were very cold and ignored our requests. The bartender and shuttle driver were very kind. Overall we were extremely disappointed with our tiny room and will not return .

Comfortable hotel, amazing views, lovely beachPosted Oct 4, 2015
Pros: the views, the beach, most of the staff, very clean, striking hotel, shuttle bus and driver, lovely taverna at bottom of beach Cons: drinks and food in hotel too expensive (this is amalfi in general too), taxis are also a rip off from Amalfi so you feel cut off if no shuttle available, esp. after 8pm. We would have eaten/stayed at hotel more if price of food and drink were more reasonable 3/4 weddings in 12 days, but didn't really affect our stay Would only stay again or recommend if we had our own transport, for shorter stay or Beach break, overall enjoyed ourselves though!

Not a 5 star hotelPosted Sep 29, 2015
Pros: The views and giovanni and maid service
Cons: need to bring food and drink prices in line with local restaraunts and not up to 50% dearer a more welcoming greeting with a smile.
Location: Amalfi is a lovely town with lots of lovely value restaraunts A beautiful cathedral and marina
The only thing 5 star about this hotel are its prices the rooms are spacious but dated and need a coat of paint and furniture updated.the beach is all stones so you need your shoes but the view is beautiful and we found the beach staff helpful. There is no customer care at this hotel no pampering the customer which you would expect at a 5 star hotel and the staff struggle to raise a smile apart from giovanni the shuttle bus driver who welcomes you and greets you everytime he sees you with a big smile. The worst issue was at breakfast time again no smiles and you can wait up to 20 minutes for your tea and coffee and then that turns up luke warm and the bacon and eggs were cold on most mornings because know one could be bothered to fill the underneath with hot water.we ended up sticking to jam on toast. What a shame because the hotel is in a good spot 10 min shuttle drive to amalfi although you will be ripped off by the cab drivers for 25 euros for a 4 km journey and be prepared to share your cab but both parties be charged the full price for the journey. A special mention to the maid service who were fantastic changing our towels twice a day and turning our beds down at night a nice touch. Make sure you visit bar Baglio a 2 min walk from the hotel where prices are a lot cheaper and the service is excellent the family owned bar cannot do enough for you. Il saraceno could learn a lot from bar Baglio.

Very disappointingPosted Sep 26, 2015
Medieval type dark hotel in need of a serious overhaul. Bed uncomfortable. A/C noisy . General lack of atmosphere. Website photos not a true reflection.

Posizione straordinariaPosted Aug 30, 2015
Pros: Vista , posizione , parcheggio . spiaggia privata.Buono il ristorante la sera
Cons: Colazione ridicola transfer ridicoli per frequenza e orari,spiaggia mal gestita.Alla fine i vantaggi sono quasi annullati dalle carenze organizzative
Location: La Costiera si conferma posto di grande bellezza, sopraffatto dalla folla e dal traffico e da servizi insufficienti
con una posizione invidiabile sulla costa e una spiaggia privata , l'hotel offre un'attrattiva di alto livello

Great views from the hotel over the seaPosted Aug 29, 2015
Pros: The location and views were fabulous.
Cons: The set menu in the restaurant was rather bland
Location: The hotel provided a shuttle bus to Amalfi from where you can take boats to Capri and other locations. The Pansa cake shop in Amalfi is worth a visit.
The hotel is in a beautiful location, but it won't suit everyone. The hotel is on the cliff face with lots of steps and two separate lifts are needed to go from top to bottom; not good if you're infirm, elderly, claustrophobic, or have very young kids. As thankfully we don't into any of these categories we had a nice time. My wife did find the lift to the beach a challenge as it is cut deep into the rock face! Our best meal was at the Trattoria Da Ciccio Cielo which is about a quarter of a mile from the hotel towards Amalfi and worth a visit, but it's best to book.
