Spent three nights here in mid-August and would highly recommend a stay here. Our visit to Italy included 8 nights on the Amalfi Coast, 3 here at Hotel Onda Verde, 5 at La Fenice in Positano, then ended with 2 nights in Rome.
Felt the price was a bit of a splurge, compared to the other hotels we stayed at during our trip, but the service was nice, breakfasts were great and you are paying for a great location. I had gone back and forth from other hotels to stay at in Praiano and so glad we choose this one. It is quite a walk to the city center of Praiano, I think we did it in about 20-25 minutes. Not much to the city, but it is a nice departure from the busier towns. I thought about choosing a hotel right in Praiano, but others I wanted to stay at which were small B&B's with water access, were booked. Glad I did not stay in the center at the other hotels, as I loved the location of Hotel Onda Verde and water access. But if water access is not important, location of Praiano is very nice.
We had a deluxe room with balcony overlooking the beach/cliff/ocean, it was an incredible view to wake up to each morning, so worth it for that. It was an Italian holiday when we arrived, so it was busy with locals, which was neat to experience. I choose it due to it's location on the water. Although you have to travel down some stairs to get to the water, we did not feel that was a detraction. We spent our first day laying out on the sun-deck. If those were not available, you could easily rent a chair at the Pirata Restaurant below for 7.5Euro a day. We never did that though. If you want a front row at the restaurant, reserve your chairs a day or two before.
We walked to all the restaurants each night. We ate at the hotel once, it was good, but not our best. The employee who checked us in gave us complimentary proseccos went we sat down, nice treat. But our regular server, seemed to be having a rough night, so that put a damper on our first evening. But we took it in stride and just enjoyed the view from the restaurant. Other two nights we walked to the beach where there are three great restaurants, within an incredible location in the cove of the beach.
The hotel had excellent service, from check-in to check-out. They are genuinely nice and accommodating. They helped us with little excursions we planned and held our luggage for us on our last day when we had a boat-trip planned. The rooms are very nice, love the hand painted tiles. Included a room-safe, small minibar, hairdryer, and TV which we never watched :) Beds are a bit firm, but still got a good nights rest each night. The breakfasts were great. Lots of fruit, pastries, great coffee, juices, eggs and bacon/sausage each morning.
Would definitely recommend a stay here if water access is important and if you want a spectacular view, along with great service.
