We spent our last night of an Italy vacation at Villa Cimbrone. After 3 days in Rome and two on Capri, Ravello was a welcome quiet spot. Arrival at the hotel involves a walk from the town square, but luggage is picked up by a golf cart, so the walk wasn't unpleasant and some of the views were spectacular.
The property itself is exactly what we expected. It is NOT a shiny, modern hotel. It is an old building with a ton of character, but those expecting the same level of amenities as a Ritz or Waldorf Astoria may be disappointed. But if you're looking for something different and luxurious in it's simplicity this is a great place. The gardens are beautiful and the view from the Infinity Terrace is nothing less than breathtaking.
Our room was comfortable, though a bathtub wold have been nice instead of just a shower. The view from the room was incredible though and the bed was very comfortable. Everyone we met, from checkin, to the bars, to the pool to the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The pool is a highlight of the property and dinner at the restaurant was one of the best meals I've ever experienced.
The only real 'bad' experience was the huge centipede in the shower, but a rolled up magazine soon convinced it to be less alive, so all was well.
We wont hesitate to stay at Villa Cimbrone when we are on the Amalfi Coast again.
