We have just returned from a truly wonderful time at Botanico San Lazzaro. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the hotel who combine to provide exceptional service from the moment of arrival to departure. We arrived late at night in our hire car and got slightly lost. When we phoned for assistance, the owner came to find us in person and escorted us to the hotel where we took the wonderful new funicular lift up the hill while the porters took care of car and luggage and we went up to the bar where we were greeted with welcome prosecco. Andrea the owner gives a super personal touch. We were then shown to our room - lovely bed, bathroom, decor, and best of all, a private garden balcony with outdoor shower.
The views in the morning, across the bay towards Ravello, Minori and Amalfi are unbelievably beautiful, as is the breakfast one is treated to each morning on the terrace. Dinner was equally superb and all this delivered with great character, particularly from the charming maitre-d Vittorio.
The private beach is great and we found the town had lots of good, affordable restaurants and the cocktails at Matinee were really great. We thought the town was a great base to explore the other more famous places nearby and we did this almost exclusively by bus and boat, including to Capri. It was very easy and the car was probably not needed especially as it can be quite frightening! But, it was good to have it for the trip to Pompeii en route to the airport.
We couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. You will not be disappointed!

All rooms and suites are furnished with taste and charm with majolica tiles from Vietri sul mare and hand decorated furniture, masterpiece of Tuscan craftsmen. ... more less
