The Palazzo Sasso bookmarks that are distributed with the basket of novels poolside state their ethos is 'stress factor zero', and they are quite right. All the staff are superb and there is a very relaxed atmosphere - nothing is any trouble. Standards are of the highest order whether it be breakfast or the turn-down service. We visited Sasso-by-the-Sea twice during our stay, it is a pretty special place - the residents' own private villa on the Med with loungers, restaurant, snorkelling gear and shuttle bus. Of course, the place is expensive but then so is Italy and in particular the Amalfi Coast. At PS you really feel like you're getting what you pay for as it exudes exclusivity and quality of service. The hotel also go the extra mile, in our case we were given a bottles of wine and Limoncello during our stay. We found these in our room with fruit and biscuits left on other days. Our visit lasted a week and was a perfect start to our annual holiday. the only downside is that the next five star hotel (in Capri) was nowhere near up to the experience of Sasso. We travel a lot with work staying at top hotels and this place is right up there with the very best. And the view is pretty incredible too.
