This hotel is probably the hotel with the best view on the Amalfi Coast. It is between Praiano and Positaro, some 15 minutes walk to Praiano and 30 minutes walk to Positaro. If you don't have a car then this is not the best place to stay since public transport (bus) is available but is not running very frequently (at best 2 times an hour). Bus stop is in front of the hotel. There are enough parking places available, at least in May (hotel was not full) and they are easy to access.
The hotel itself is good with friendly staff. Restaurant is good, but expensive. A cappucino in the lobby is Eur 5. The pool is great and also the facilities near the sea are very good. The sunbeds were new and comfortable.They were still painting the facilities in early May when we stayed there. Also, I do not understand why the daily cleaning of the pool is done in the middle of the morning for an hour. This should be done early in the morning before the guest arrive.
The room for 4p was spacious and clean but we had problems with the wifi in the room. It should work, but we didn't get it to work. Wifi in the lobby, near the pool and at the beach was working.
The shower had a cloughed drain and although staff reacted instantly to our notifications, it was not resolved.
All in all a nice hotel, and the location is such that you forget the little things that are not perfect.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Grand Hotel Tritone in Praiano, located in the heart of the Amalfi Coast. The hotel offers guests 60 rooms with frontal sea view. Rooms, Junior Suites and Suites have all comfort and service of a top hotel. The ambient is bright and comfortable. The interior design shows traditional materials like the famous ceramic of Vietri. Equipped with all the comfort , like high speed wifi (free of charge). The Amalfi Coast, with its lovely emerald colored water, is full of rocks , caves and hidden bays. This magic scenery, guests can enjoy from the private beach below the hotel, which is reachable by elevators. In this peaceful place, exclusively reserved for the clients, it is possible to have lunch, sitting at tables facing the sea. The "Beach Restaurant Ninò" is much appreciated by clients, as it allows to enjoy traditional local and carefully prepared dishes and fresh fruit in high quality. For active clients or trekking lovers, the private beach can be reached by an unbelievable stairway, unbelievable because many architects did not trust in realizing it, but- thanks to the tenacity of the founder Giuseppe Gagliano- was built. Who instead likes to dip in the swimming pool has just the problem to choose the right one, as the hotel has two, both seawater pools. Th bigger one, with hydro-massage, is faced to the sea, surrounded by the amazing colors of the mediterranian nature. The second one, smaller sized and located at the beach level, offers clients an alternative to the sea, especially when there are days with a strong breeze. The different terraces of the reception area invite clients to have an aperitif, enjoying the amazing sunset with incredible views to Positano and the island of Capri. After the aperitif clients can enjoy dinner in our restaurant "La Cala delle Lampare" with its beautiful terrace, overlooking the sea, and can visit the wine cellar "Canticalana", where top quality wines are waiting to be tasted. Every year, the Grand Hotel Tritone continues the tradition of genuine hospitality, welcoming visitors from all over the world. ... more less
