Amalfi Coast + Santa Maria Villa = Stunning

Posted Jun 16, 2016 on Hotels
So the Santa Maria was in a great spot. Not too close to Amalfi - to be bothered by traffic and city noise - and the views were fantastic. Cute, quaint little room that was just enough for two people on their Honeymoon. The ONLY major draw back -- the amount of stairs. Not just to get from street level to the lobby, but even to the hot tub / sauna / coast line. Probably just a nature of the location, but definitely took us by surprise. MAKE CERTAIN you can handle walking and alot of stairs. If you can, this place was great. The service / staff were great and informative. Also, two little restaurants were right up the street so didn't have to venture too far to get a good meal. Ah... and forgot to mention, yes, the stairs were intense but there was a "bell hop" who grabbed our bags and brought them down and up when we arrived and when we left (he even parked our rental car in a safe spot too!). TIP THAT MAN. They say don't tip in Italy, but he handled two 50lb+ bags on 75+ steps like they were grocery bags. Awesome.

Had a brilliant time staying at this hotel, about 2 miles outside of the centre of Amalfi. Luisa, the hotel manager, was great and gave us great tips on places to go, where to eat, bus times etc - she really made a difference in our stay. The hotel itself is in a great location, a bus stop right outside and Amalfi well within walking distance. Not suitable for the immobile as there are many stairs to climb. Would definitely stay again

Pros: The breakfast is great, one of the best that I've ever had. Accommodations are fine also. There is a "private beach" and many perks, jaccuzzi.
Cons: The only thing I would warn is to people with locomotion problems that there is a long and steep stair to reach the house.
Location: Amalfi is a paradise with zillions of places and thinks to do. You can take a ferry and visit Capri for a day or drive around to Positano, etc.
The hotel is in fact a country house. You feel like home and the staff is incredible friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet and charming place and very close to Amalfi as well look no more. I think it would be perfect for a honeymoon. Rent a small car better convertible and you are close to incredible locations and other small cities like Positano, Ravello, etc.

Great hotel but location a little remote

Posted Sep 13, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel is far from amalfi. If you stay here I definitely recommend a car. We parked along the side of the road. There are many steps down to the hotel so if you have difficulty with steps I wouldn't advise staying here. There was a porter who brought our bags down when we checked in and carried everything up when we left. We could not have done without him. Our room was extremely small but it was clean. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful we walked down to the little deck and had a swim. The water is crystal clear. Again many steps down to the water!! The views are breathtaking. Breakfast was ok croissants and coffee, cheese, fruit etc. Hotel staff was nice. I probably wouldn't stay here again because of its location but if you want somewhere quiet and relaxing this is it.

Very helpful staff, newly renovated, amazing views

Amazing views, great staff, clean newly renovated rooms. The location is about a 20 minute walk to Amalfi. There is also easy bus and taxi service available. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. They serve a great breakfast with a large variety of foods. Very happy with our stay.

Schönes Hotel mit Privatstrand

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Sehr gutes Frühstück und wirklich sehr nettes Personal.
Location: Ca. 5 km von Amalfi entfernt; Zum Baden traumhaft; Für Kinder gänzlich ungeeignet.
Wir waren 4 Nächte dort und es war einfach nur schön! Zimmer und Badezimmer sind für die kurze Zeit schon sehr abgewohnt und könnten ein paar kleine Erneuerungen gebrauchen, aber darüber haben wir hinweggesehen.

Il paradiso!!!

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Tutto, anche gli scalini, che inizialmente spaventano, poi si dimenticano! E fare le scale per scendere al mare, o salire, diventa un piacere
Cons: Dovrebbe solo essere specificato che la sistemazione non è consigliata per famiglie e persone anziane.
Una villa sospesa sul mare, panorama unico, spiaggetta (in realtà una piattaforma) privata, tranquillità e relax, un posto fantastico dove di sicuro torneremo!

Nice boutique villa

Posted Jun 4, 2014 on Hotels
This is a secluded guest house with beautiful and scenic surroundings and access to a private beach. Access is via a long staircase great for exercising but not suited for everybody. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The staff are friendly and attentive during the day but non existent after 6pm if you need anything. Breakfast was a delight. Town centre was around 35 mins along the coast or 10 mins by bus from right outside the guest house. Overall a nice place to stay.
