My husband and I arrived at Hotel Pellegrino after a long and exhausting journey from Rome. We booked this hotel based on all of the positive reviews other travelers gave, and all of the praise was absolutely true. When we arrived, our hosts made us feel so welcome. Our room was wonderful and spacious, and the view of the Amalfi Coast from our balcony was spectacular! We were invited to enjoy a welcome drink (aka an entire bottle of wine!) on the 3rd floor when we were settled into our room.
The food here was among the very best we had in all 11 days we were in Italy. Seafood was a big thing in this part of Italy, and since we are from the middle of the United States, fresh seafood is always a delicious treat. Luigi does seafood extremely well, and the Swordfish, octopus salad, and oysters were among our favorites. The cakes and crostata that are prepared daily....TO DIE FOR! Even breakfast, which is not a typical Italian meal, and consisted of Nutella and bread when in Rome, was executed to perfection. We were brought wonderful fresh squeezed juice, fresh fruit, bread, homemade fruit spreads, yogurt, made-to-order cappicino and espresso, and if that isn't enough, "bacon and eggs" if you wanted them. My husband and I loved the way that Luigi prepared scrambled eggs with proscuitto, bruschetta, aged cheese, and olives so much we have been recreating and eating it for breakfast since being home in the States.
Nothing is too much to ask of the Pellegrinos when it comes to getting around and suggestions for meals and activities. One day, we asked how to get to the beach, and Luigi noticed we did not have any beach towels. He found some extra towels for us and then drove us to the area where you begin the gorgeous hike down to the beach. He even offered to come and pick us up when we were finished there.
No place we have been has ever been so wonderful for the price. We want to come back to the Amalfi Coast with our families, and if we do, we will not hesitate to stay here again. The Pellegrinos will truly treat you like family when you stay with them. That is such a wonderful feeling when you are in a strange new place and are far from your own family.
