Initially we had made this over enthusiastic plan to spend two nights each in different towns on the Amalfi coast but after getting to Tramonto we realized how easy it was to go to every town for a day trip and how nice it was to have a base to come back to. Long story short we ended up only going to stay in Ravello for two nights (which is a must do) and then headed back to Tramonto for the remaining time that we were there.
All the towns on the coast are gorgeous, so its hard to go wrong. We liked Praiano because it was small and by day 2 you got to know the locals, chat with them and feel like you just want to stay there. Its less touristy which made it great. The bus right outside Tramonto makes it extremely convenient to get to Positano in 10 mins. We went to Positano for a day trip and dinner and to Music on the Rocks but were happy to get back to Tramonto.
About the hotel- you cannot go wrong with Tramonto. Its a family run hotel , the lady who owns it I think Mama Esposito (cant remember) is such a sweetheart. She personally came to drop us out and to tell our cab guy to drive us safely. We loved her and also the rest of the family and staff that works there. The rooms themselves face the water with gorgeous views all around. You can hear the church bells , its a very relaxing,beautiful place which makes you feel like you belong there. The breakfast was good with quite a few options. We did not eat at the hotel as we would be in other towns for dinner or this very amazing restaurant in Praiano where we ate twice called Hosteria Il Pino- go to it. It was very reasonably priced and excellent food.
We were deciding between Casa Angelina and Tramonto initially and are so glad that we went with Tramonto as its better value for money. Also, checked out a bunch of places in Positano but couldnt stand the thought of being in a crowded place when we could be in the cute charming town of Praiano. Also do not miss Ravello while on the coast, it is gorgeous specially in the evenings when its not crowded.
