This is a really great hotel... rooms for the most part overlook the cliffs and ocean - absolutely gorgeous views... I thought the hotel was pretty high up until we hired a van to get to the Amalfi Coast... we could go much higher I found out... ;-) The hotel is not next to the water and not really within walking distance of the town or waterfront, but there are plenty of ways to get where you want to go, so shouldn't be a show stopper unless you want to be right in town... also the roads are so tight I would recommend walking many places except in the town itself which is like many European towns very walkable in the shopping districts.
Anyway the food was pretty good - we had a party of 9 and breakfast and dinner was included... the service great... kudos to Salvatore and Luigi who made both the breakfast and dinner experience a pleasure!!
The rooms were very nicely appointed and regular beds were appreciated after the extra firm (hard) twins pushed together we had in Rome... the pool area was very nice, not crowded at all, so very usable... but the dining and bar areas were a highlight... we sat at the bar and out on the patio with bar service overlooking the cliffs - I had one of the best dirty martini's I've ever had... I thought the bar staff was excellent as well...
The only thing that I thought detracted from the hotel at all was the atmosphere... almost seemed like it was just opening and had not been fully decorated... hard to describe... not a real negative, just thought it was a little unusual that the lobby was not more appointed - pictures and accents... really nothing to worry - the service and facility was excellent!!
I would stay at this hotel again.
