Magnificent hotel with breathtaking views.
Posted Aug 24, 2016
Magnificent hotel with breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea/Amalfi coast. Everything was high quality and clean. We stayed only two nights at this hotel (we wanted four) in August, 2016, but it was booked up, so we had to move to another hotel near Amalfi for two nights. The room had a small balcony with a great view of the coast. It was decorated in a very modern, minimalist style and had a firm, comfortable bed. The hotel’s public areas (the large terrace, lobby and breakfast area) had absolutely magnificent views of the water and were decorated tastefully with lots of Italian glass. Breakfast buffet was good (fresh squeezed orange juice, pastries, and cold cuts.) Three good-quality restaurants are located beneath the hotel on the rocky beach area (you take an elevator down to a walkway and walk about 200 steps down to a beach). During the daytime we walked uphill (steep 30-45 minutes uphill, lots of steps, with great views of the coast) to the very small town of Conca dei Marini to have lunch. We used public transportation (bus) to reach this hotel, and unfortunately I would not recommend staying here without a car, as the options for restaurants and snacks and things to do are very limited by foot.
