Hotel views are great and food and food service was average. The "best" 2 story rooms were horrible as very small, shower was clogged, tub wouldn't hold water and AC made terrible noises. When we asked the first day for another room, they couldn't believe it and said they would ask manager the next AM. When we asked another person the next morning, they said we had the best room and couldn't believe we slept with AC on?! We were so unhappy after no sleep our first night, that we moved hotels and they couldn't believe it, gave us dirty looks and also gave no refund as we booked 4 nights and only stayed 1 night!

We stayed at the Excelsior Grand Hotel as part of a package holiday booked through Tempo Holidays. Considering the age of the hotel it is in great condition overall. Had a 1970's James Bond feel to it! The views from our room or anywhere around the hotel were fantastic and we could not fault the staff or the food. The breakfast was better than other places we had stayed in. The Hotel offers a bus down to Amalfi and the private beach throughout the day. We did not go to the private beach as it was 10 euros each, but we found the pool area was pool area was lovely and the snack bar offers a great variety of food and drinks. Unfortunately we only spent two nights there but it would be a great place if you wanted to base yourself somewhere for a few days to either explore the area or do nothing but relax and enjoy the views. Wifi was only available in the lobby and lounge areas or by the pool.

The Excelsior Grand Hotel in Amalfi exceeded all our expectations. The large comfortable rooms with elegant and generous sized bathrooms were comfortably furnished. The location is extraordinary. Perched on the hills overlooking Amalfi, the hotel is a real treat. Despite the many interesting things to see and do in the area, we couldn't resist taking one whole day to sit by the pool overlooking the magnificent seacoast. The Staff bent over backwards to be accommodating, especially the maître d' in the restaurant who, by the second day, knew everybody in our party and greeted us like old friends. Speaking of the restaurant, the breakfast was superb and very generous. We ate two dinners at the hotel and both were delicious, though I would be careful with the fish dishes, which did contain many bones. To get to the hotel, there was a shuttle bus leaving precisely on a published schedule. Otherwise, one had to take a taxi. Hotel provided beach umbrellas and cabanas free of charge, although we did not take advantage of this. There is a large and friendly bar, and ends we were there during the soccer games it was fun to meet there and watch the fans go crazy. All rooms seemed to have terraces with great views. I recommend the grand Excelsior Hotel in Amalfi.

I would definitely recommend this hotel when staying in the Amalfi area. Hotel provides a shuttle to the city centre and their private beach. Rooms are small but clean and the view is truly breath taking!! The breakfast is a little lacking and the coffee was not very good but overall acceptable. Pool area is very nice and the snack bar offers a great lunch variety..Private beach is a must at this hotel. I would definitely go back!!

It's a worry-free experience. We are seniors and having someone look for you at the airport with a drive to the hotel and back to the airport by experienced bus drivers knowing every inch of those cliffs is outstanding. The hotel provides buses all day to and from Amalfi which takes about 10-15 minutes. It's a place to meet people from around the world and from Amalfi. The staff get to know what you like, how long your going to be there, where you like to sit in the dining rooms, answer any questions about where to go and who to see to get there and do it in English. We could walk around lemon trees on the cliff, see tiny gardens growing basil outside our room balcony. We could wake up to a rooster crow or an donkey somewhere, we could not see them. We walked from the hotel one day down the 1000-1500 steps(we didn't count them but others have) steps down the cliff to Amalfi for another adventure. Saw a goat herd coming down the mountain. The 50 year old hotel is bright, clean, pretty, comfy, organized, and overlooked the sea and cliffs. The halls need some replacements, paint etc. but I wasn't living there, we just needed a safe and clean place to eat and sleep and friendly people to deal with and we got that in spades. We stayed there for a week and took tours from there. Such a wonderful part of the world to discover!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have access to the sea view but you want a sea view.
