I had a lovely peaceful stay at Villa Fraulo. However there were a few disappointing things. Make sure you get a room high up in the hotel. We had a superior deluxe sea view room - which was lovely inside - however right next to a busy road - which was very loud and woke me up at 7am every morning. The view however, was magnificent - really special. The rooms were cleaned well daily and the cleaners were very nice and friendly. Buffet Breakfast was good, but not the best - could have done with replenishing as some of the food looked a bit stale. The sun lounging area was nice - lovely loungers and a great view - although the pool could have done with cleaning and heating. It was freezing and had a little mould at the bottom. The staff were lovely - always chatting and helping us with routes to visit other places in the area.
We were so relaxed we ended up eating at the hotel one day and not venturing out - the food was good. We hired a car for our stay - and the roads are so thin to get into the hotel it was a struggle to not scratch the car! The staff will help you get it in if you aren't the best or most confident driver. It is €25 a day to park in the hotel, which is quite expensive but there isn't
a way around it. Despite this the hotel was lovely and a treat in Ravello.
