We stayed here for 8 nights while on our honeymoon and we had such a lovely time. Our room was huge, beautifully furnished, comfortable and immaculately clean. I think the bathroom had recently been re-done because it was all new. We were lucky enough to have our own private terrace with sun beds and it looked over the coastline and ocean. Such a wonderful view! It was amazing to sit out here in the evening before dinner with a glass of prosecco and watch the sunset over the water. I think most of the rooms had small balconies and ocean views. We felt like we were staying in an Italian villa! Even though the hotel was booked out, it didn't feel crowded or busy at all - it was lovely and peaceful and quiet, perfect for relaxing.
The staff were also wonderful - they were so friendly and helpful! Breakfast was between 8-10:30 (good for a sleep in!) and consisted of a nice spread of fruit, pasties, bread, cereals, tea/coffee/juice, yoghurt etc, and the lovely girls Concetta and Luisa made us espressos every day. Sitting on the terrace enjoying a lovely little italian breakfast and the amazing view was just bliss! One of the highlights of the hotel was the private swimming spot down the stairs - totally worth the climb down, it was the perfect spot to relax by the water and have a swim in the beautiful ocean!
Praiano is a really lovely area and we're so glad we stayed here. There are some really nice restaurants and shops in the area which are definitely worth visiting. The hotel also organised a boat trip to Capri for us and that was a really lovely day out - would definitely recommend this. Another nice beach is just a short walk from the hotel and we spent another day hanging out there. There is a bar here but no restaurant, but they drive you to their sister restaurant which I also highly recommend - really lovely food!
I'd highly recommend staying at Hotel Torre Saracena in Praiano as it's such a pretty little spot away from all the tourists in Positano and Amalfi (there is a bus stop right outside the hotel which goes to both these towns). I have to say that this was one of our favourite hotel stays. Really can't recommend this hotel more highly - we definitely want to come back!
