My husband and I love coming to the Amalfi Coast for our anniversary since we came here on our honeymoon. I am so glad we found Villa Felice because they really made this trip memorable. The awesome customer service began the minute we pulled in. Madeline helped us with our bags up the stairs to our room and offered us a wonderful welcome. When we saw our room, we were impressed. We choose the deluxe room when booking and we are SO GLAD we did. It was very big, clean, and beautifully decorated. It had a huge flat screen tv and a mini bar. The best part of the whole room though is the terrace. It is IMMENSE. It has two tables, big lounge chairs and many places to sit and relax. Absolutely break taking views on Amalfi and the coast. They even brought us up breakfast everyday so we could take advantage of the sun and scenery. I also loved the bathroom which had the traditional amalfi style tiles and an awesome window in the shower you could open and look out at the sea.
We didn't plan on eating at the hotel originally, but were tired the first night and thought "what the heck". We were blown away by the food and the romantic setting the staff created for us. We ate dinner the rest of our time there, it was that good. The menu is fixed though and based on sea food, but if my picky Italian husband will eat every bite that is saying something (especially since he usually doesn't like seafood).
The other great part was the 24 hour rides to and from Amalfi offered by the staff. While we enjoyed the walk down from the hotel to town (there is a pedestrian only path that has a lot of stairs but really cool views of lemon groves, the sea and houses and is about 3km to amalfi) the way back up may be difficult for a lot of people. The few times we did call for a ride they were there to get us within minutes and bring us back to the hotel.
Honestly, I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. I am American but have lived in Italy for five years so I know what to expect from European hotels (small, overpriced, aging, unfriendly at times) but Villa Felice and the staff exceeded even my most "American" expectations. We are very happy that we have found a place we will enjoy coming to every year!
