good value for money restaurant, but the hotel is too expensive. + extra 15 euro/day parking.
When we arrived our room was overbooked; so the first night we had to spend in another hotel in another town. Old furniture in the room, +/- functioning airco. Some days the breakfast buffet was almost empty... when arriving a bit later.
...but excellent location.

Cost expensive for a Pensione, A/C kind of worked. Food VERY expensive. Parking not included.
Still worth a visit.

This was the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel, the first time was fantastic and this time it was even better. The hotel is warm, friendly and full of character, the exterior retains a true rustic charm while the inside is simple, practical and very clean. Alfonso and his family are magnificent hosts, providing an attentive but never interferring service, always on hand to help & advise and very trustworthy - thank you for everything. What can I say about the food? Absolutely wonderful!!!! From the fresh fish coming off the local fisherman's boat (about 10metres from the hotel front), local wine to the homemade pasta and cakes, all simply delicious and great value for money - try the chocolate souffle and almond ice cream. It is a rarity to find such a great combination of accommodation, service, location, friendliness and food and we will be returning again & again & again

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are large with a great view, but with the hotel being on the beach all rooms were gre...

We stayed here in late May 2006 and had a fantastic room, very clean, quiet, and at the same time a very lively place. The food was excellent, try their tomato salad it is excellent.
Don;t let the exterior appearance fool you, this is a first rate hotel!
Alfonso let us use his dial up connection at that time to check the internet.

Hotel La Certosa was the highlight of the Masa Lubrense area which is a 10 minute boat ride to Positano, 35 minute boat ride to Capri,etc. Location is amazing as it is right off the water and everything you can schedule is right there in front of the hotel. We found this hotel after we checked into a horrifying "supposed" resort down the road. This place is truly a hidden gem and I could not be happier that we found it. Alfonso the hotel manager is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, not only was he accommodating 24/7 but his lovely family from the brothers, to the cousins, to his wife and children along with his mother and father, whom happen to be amazing cooks!!! The atmosphere of this hotel was warm and fun and loving. Now, I dont want to be biased or anything but their restaurant has the best food now Ill tell you why. You go to Italy expecting to get great homemade Italian food and at La Certosa you are getting great family homemade Italian food. I mean its like tasting heaven, no matter what dish you choose. As you can tell, I loved this place and I plan on coming back. They know how to treat their guests well.

This small, family run, rustic inn and former monastery was the hightight of our trip. Location was ideal; on the beach, with easily accessible activities and boats to other areas of interest right out in front. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff was exceptionally warm, friendly and helpful. All staff member were like family, accomodated all of our needs, as well as those of other guests. The food at the restaurant was incredible! I would highly recommend Hotel Certosa and plan to stay there again. Its perfect for families with children.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!! We found this wonderful hotel by accident. The hotel manager Alfonso is superb, anything we needed help with no matter what time he was always there to help. The entire staff at la certosa is equally as helpful. This small family run hotel makes you feel as if your one of the family. Breakfast in the morning is excellent, especially loved the cappucino and croissants. The hotel alos has a wonderful restaurant and the food is out of this world good!!!! Best part of the hotel is that its right on the beach, with beach chairs and umbrellas for when the sun gets too hot.
