This was our final stop for 2 nights after our visit to Sorrento and Capri for my fianc?????s 50th birthday. As soon as we arrived we were accompanied into reception and luggage taken by the porter to be sent to our room. Check in was easy and staff were welcoming. We were shown to our room and were then treated to some fresh strawberries and chocolate. We also had 2 complimentary bellinis, I would recommend them! We had the sea view room (40) and if you can upgrade to this room I strongly recommend it. The view is amazing. There is a shuttle bus that takes you into Amalfi until midnight. We used this facility often and it???s definitely a benefit as you are away from the hustle and bustle of the town but can visit any any time during the day. Breakfast was continental buffet or hot food made to order. The bar area was lit by candles at night and was very pretty. We treated ourselves to full body massages at the spa on our last day, pre booking is recommended. Andreina de risi was an amazing masseuse. We asked for a medium strength massage with lemon oils to loosen our tired muscles from walking. If you are looking to unwind, I would definitely recommend it! We also visited the main restaurant for our last meal and we were definitely not disappointed. With a pianist in the corner of the restaurant creating a romantic and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. We had the chateaubriand and was not disappointed. The room was cleaned a couple of times throughout the day and slippers and water on the side of the bed left by the maids at night. We never got to use the pool area as we didn???t have the best of weathers but we did take some pictures and can see it being a great place to relax in the heat. If you are considering a luxurious stay in Amalfi, this is the hotel to be. Thank you Santa Caterina.

We arrived by car at the impressive front of the hotel in the late afternoon having driven from Naples, climbed Vesuvius and explored Pompeii. The attentive door staff arranged a parking space for the car and escorted or luggage to the reception where we were warmly welcomed to the hotel and checked in to an impressive room with a spectacular patio including views looking 180?? out to sea and over the dramatically sloping hotel grounds. We settled in to the room with complimentary tasty treats. As we were spending two nights in this amazing hotel, we unpacked and absorbed the luxurious surroundings including an impressive ensuite bathroom. We booked our dinner at the hotel Michelin starred restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and explored the hotel gardens leading down to the pool area and direct access to the sea. The evening dinner was a real treat and the sommelier suggested the perfect Prosecco to accompany the gastronomic extravaganza. In the morning we took an early swim before breakfast in both the Mediterranean and the hotel pool. Breakfast was in the form of a well presented buffet with some special dishes including eggs done to taste ordered from the attentive waiters. Due to Covid we had to wear face masks when leaving the table to peruse the buffet but that is what you would expect in these times. From the hotel we walked the 7 miles to Ravello with beautiful views form the Cimbrone Gardens. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in... bliss.
