We stayed at the Santa Caterina while getting ready for our wedding in Atrani. We also had our wedding dinner at the hotel. We stayed in the Il Torrino Suite.

While the weather was not the most cooperative (end of May - 2013), the hotel and staff were amazing. Everyone went out of their way to make this a special experience for us. I can't say enough about everyone at the hotel from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.

The pool by the sea is wonderful. The poolside restaurant had amazing food. I would highly recommend their pizza.

The views and gardens are stunning.

This is truly paradise.

This is a most picturesque hotel situated in Amalfi on the Amalfi coast. The service is outstanding and the staff are exceptional.

I recently spent a week here celebrating my 50th birthday and I could not have asked for a more beautiful place to stay.

Amalfi is a georgeous Italian town and there are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and sites to see.

Highly recommended and would definately return.

A really top hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Hanging on the cliff with fabulous views over the Mediterranean from all public area and most bedrooms. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Food was very good indeed especially the breakfast.
Obviously the best rooms to have are those with sea views but there is a cost implication.

A useful free shuttle to the town centre was well used by us.

We arrived at the Hotel Santa Caterina with much anticipation after a 15 hour transatlantic trip and a four hour drive in a rental car from Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport. We were exhausted and we were greeted by two friendly and helpful Bellman/car attendants who escorted us to the reception desk. We had reserved a deluxe seafront room with a balcony and were escorted by the front desk clerk (hate to call him a clerk… he was more than that) to room 27 which did not disappoint. The view from the oversized balcony was breathtaking. The room had a large, comfortable king-size bed looking out onto a balcony with a table and two chaise chairs, a flat screen TV, seating area , and a large bathroom with a whirlpool bath and shower.

Having traveled almost 24 hours we decided to freshen up and have an early light dinner in the hotel restaurant. In a word, it was a throwback to years past with impeccable service along with wonderful food. The captain who took our order suggested a few dishes that my wife and I tried that were just great. I should mention that the restaurant overlooks Amalfi Harbor and provided a fabulous view at sunset. In the morning there is a wonderful buffet breakfast (with an omelet station) in the dining room and on the adjacent patio. The patio is open for dinner, as weather permits, and we enjoyed dining there another evening.

While we did not make use of the swimming pool along the water below, it looked absolutely appetizing and if we come again we will be sure to enjoy the area as well as the restaurant which was not opened up yet for the season when we arrived. We did enjoy the lobby bar after a long day for drinks that were great along with fine service. Since this was our first extended stay in Amalfi, we did make use of the concierge service and Gennaro, in particular, was most helpful in arranging for restaurant reservations and giving us sightseeing suggestions.

While the hotel was outstanding in all respects, I always find that you can separate an exceptional hotel from the great ones by how they handle problems. We had a problem with an unknown odor in our bathroom that affected my wife who has allergies. Within minutes of reporting this problem we were offered a room next door (that happened to be a mini suite) and bellmen were sent to help us move our belongings. That room, room 28, had a hallway entrance along with a living room and bedroom and was located on the southeast corner with views of the harbor and the sea. The bottom line is that we love the hotel, hope to go back and will certainly recommend it to anyone that asks. We just wish we had more than four nights to stay and enjoy Amalfi, the hotel and its old world service.

Room Tip: If you think you want to sit out on your own balcony, some rooms have larger ones... and you should...

My family and I stayed at this magnificant hotel last August. The location is perfect. On the water with a beautiful pool (which you take an elevator built into a mountain to access). Ten minutes to the center of Amalfi and not far from Positano and other great places. Lobby is beautiful and service excellent. Rooms were very well appointed and the breakfast which was inluded was super. Eggs to order, fresh cheeses and breads, fig and lemon jams from their own trees. This is truly one of the most spectacular places my family has ever stayed at. Restaurant was spectacular for dinner and you cannot go wrong here.

Room Tip: Try to be away from the main house where it is a little more quiet.

We arrived at this most beautiful hotel close to 10PM and the very friendly staff at the hotel encouraged us to go immediately to the dining room for dinner before it closed around 10:30. We were in travel clothes (including running shoes) but they welcomed us warmly as we were and didn't make us feel out of place. The meals at the hotel were absolutely delicious and portions quite abundant - as we found throughout Sicily and Southern Italy. When we went to our gorgeous room overlooking the Sea with a balcony, we discovered why we were encouraged to not freshen up/change clothes before dinner. It was quite a walk to get to our room!! We took an elevator down a few floors, then the fun began! Walking and more flights of stairs down, more walking and finally into our section of rooms and then up another flight of stairs. But when we made it to our room, it was gorgeous. Beautifully appointed and totally picturesque with balcony opening onto the Sea and the bathroom also had a large glass window open to the Sea. (We did see some rooms right off the elevator, so if stairs are a problem, they do have a few rooms you could request.)

Getting to the pool was another adventure - flights of stairs up and down - and then taking the elevator that went along side the cliff (beautiful if you wanted to look out) to another dining/party area where you found a few more flights of stairs to the gorgeous pool area that looked right out onto the Sea.

The staff at the Front Desk couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The Dining Room Maitre'D, Pino, was most attentive as was the rest of the restaurant staff (morning and night). The housekeepers were always friendly if we should meet them in the halls - and anything we needed came immediately to our room. They offered a shuttle service to "town" during certain times, but we also ended up walking a few times. It's a good thing the restaurant at the hotel was so good because it wasn't easy going to town just for dinner after a long day out and about. A few nights we ate "snacks" at the bar outside the restaurant area and enjoyed that as well.

We stayed at this beautiful hotel for six nights and loved our experience in Amalfi and the surrounding areas. (We took the boat from Amalfi to Positano one day and to Capri another day - and took a day tour of the Amalfi Coast which was beautiful.)

Room Tip: If you can't easily walk the stairs, ask for a room near the elevator. And of course, ask for a...
