How to Get There
This hotel is a bit off The beaten path away from town so it makes it hard to leave to dine out or sightsee. That being said it’s a wedding factory so prepare for the pool to be closed the dining room to be closed Etc. while you’re paying top dollar to stay at the resort but yet you’re not able to use the facilities. I had an unfortunate fall on a ramp that they had just mopped. I twisted my ankle pretty bad and actually ended up having some surgery when I return to the United States. I went to the front desk and asked for some ice and told them what it happened and asked to see a manager. They told me I would have to go to the restaurant to get the ice. It was not easy to walk but I went to the restaurant to get the ice and spoke to the maid that was mopping in another area and she ate knowledge that she had mopped there and was very helpful. I spoke to her supervisor who is also quite nice. I went back to the front desk to ask for manager and was told that the fall was not their responsibility because there was a sign posted by the elevator same slippery which was not even visible to me at the time. The manager was not there but the front office manager Mr. VERGAT I came out and told me they were not responsible for anything because there was a sign. I told him the sign was not there when it happened and he told me the only way I could get a copy of my fall as I know they have cameras there was to go to the police station and request it. They did not offer any sort of help to make me more comfortable. They could not of been ruder. The The next day my ankle and knee and leg were completely black and blue and swollen. I could not even get a shoe on. I spoke to the manager again and he told me he would do something to compensate me but of course I never heard from him again . Because there wedding each night of our stay we ate in a very small room from a small over priced menu with horrific food and terrible service....two of the nights the bar was not even open. This was not a Inespensive hotel. The room was ok and comfortable but not what you would expect. We had a little area out side in front of room but the grounds were dead. I should have known things would not be nice when we met some locals from the ferry who asked why we had picked there to stay. I wrote the hotel several times as well as e mail after I got home with no response. One of my worst travel experiences ever. I do not recommend this hotel at all.
I had an Amazing stay.....the view of the Amalfi coast from the pool is awesome. Breakfast was also good & the hotel has a private beach too for people who want to spend some time at the beach with peace.
5 Star hotel that is not close to anything. Great breakfast, and amenities. If you don't have a car expect to pay 35 Euros each way for trips to civilization. The closest town is 5 minutes away by shuttle and isn't walkable except by the ablest. Great views by rooms on the side facing the bay.
Wonderful place. Spacious room, friendly staff. Food was 4 out of 5. Great views sitting outside. We loved having a cocktail at night overlooking the bay. The only thingI did not like was the elevators were confusing to different patts of the hotel....I have a bad back and you had to walk to the pool area...great burgers by the way!
We have stayed one night after traveling the Amalfi great road .
The Deluxe room with sea view was a big and comfortable room, with amazing view from the balcony (especially the sunrise),
Front desk team service was good and polite, breakfast was ok, various choices.
Free parking is also a benefit.
Outdoor pool was closed due to off season, the indoor pool is part of the SPA and cost additional 25 Euro per person.
Relaxing place in the area
