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.
