Less than we expected for the price
Posted Aug 30, 2014
Nice hotel overall. But less than we expected for the money we paid. The hotel is located on the seaside and very close to the sightseeings of Amalfi, but too close to the road so that you can hear the trafic noise. The hotel beach is good: clean, well-equiped, with the glass lift to the beach with fantastic sea views from the lift, but on the beach there is no place to swim for a person that is not a good swimmer (very deep at once, stairs to the water, water-waves ). The hotel has a swimming pool on the beach with water from the sea, but again it is very shallow in one part (for children) and it is very deep in the other part (at once, not gradually). They have a nice restaurant with a fantastic view, but the tables are very inconvenient (no space for the legs). The waiters are well trained and try to do their best, but their actions are sometimes not considered for the convenience of the customers, they are also sometimes tounching the food and glasses with their sleeves. Overall, the stuff is very responsive and friendly, but a little bit "wild", e.g. it took ages to explain how we want our bed to be made (housekeepers does not understand even basic English). But we have to acknowledge that once we managed to explain what we want, they made our bed properly all other days). The breakfast was fine, but they served just Twinnings tea (tea bags, no loose leaf tea). The restaurant recommended by the reception as a fantastic one was very average (average food, bad service).
