We've just returned from our honeymoon in at The Grand Excelsior Hotel. The location and views were incredible, with a regular reliable shuttle bus to take you to the beach, and into Amalfi.
The hotel was fantastic, from our arrival at 11.30pm we were greated with a smile and a tasty plate of mozzarella salad and bread. There was always a warm welcome from Antonio and his team for the delicious evening meals of pasta, fresh fish and local vegetables and yummy deserts, alongside lovely local wines.
By day we relaxed by the pool and took in the surroundings, watching the boats and listening to the chuch bells, took the bus (and on one occassion walked the 800 steps!) into Amalfi and pottered around the ceramic shops and patesseries. We also took the boat over to Positano, and the coach to Pompeii and Vesuvius. We spent the majority of our evenings in the hotel bar, which always had a great atmosphere, and on our last evening a local band played.
I don't understand people commenting that the hotel needs 'updating'. It's a wonderful Italian hotel. We had a large room with lovely floor tiles, which had a large balcony (with a table, two chairs and three deckchair recliners!) which had beautiful views of the coast and sea.
We've come home relaxed, happy, and looking forward to a future vist to the Excelsior!More
