This hotel is a converted monastery (despite the name "Convento") build into the cliffs of Amalfi. Very Ian Schrager-esque in that it is all white simplicity to help you concentrate on the beauty of the surroundings. The public rooms are decorated all white with huge white chandeliers throughout the property. There are bougainvilla covered patios, one of which they set for breakfast. The hotel is on a cliff but you can walk into town in about 5 minutes using stairs. We think the only reason we didn't gain that much weight on this trip is because we also used the stairs back up after dinner in town! Our guestroom had a sitting area, a bedroom (with balcony) with full view of the coast and a bathroom I wanted to take home with me. There is an ancient church on site but it is locked. They will show it to you if you ask (see photos). The staff was incredible, they just couldn't do enough for you. The only issue I had was the internet which you needed a code for every 24 hours (very tedious) and was slow. We heard that this is a problem along the coast but this is an issue the hotel should address. Other than that I give this hotel an A+ and if I ever reincarnate as a monk, I hope it is here.
