The Caruso an exceptional property in a part of the world where breathtaking surroundings are the norm. Given that there are only 50 rooms, the grounds are enormous and are graciously planted with beautiful gardens. Magnificent vistas greet you at every corner in a completely renovated facility. Contrary to some reviewers, we found the staff helpful, almost to the point of officious, and very capable.

Reviewers are right to point out that the Caruso is expensive. But that must be taken in the context of the cost of maintaing something of this scale with such exceptional staffing on a seasonal basis. We felt as if we received fair value.

We got upgraded to a suite with a private garden and a bathroom that stretched out over 3-levels - our room was bigger than most NYC Apartments.

The view was stunning, the heated pool terrific, and the service - from the housekeepers to the breakfast waiters to the front desk staff - was ridiculously good.

The hotel is centrally located, and a quick walk to several restaurants and attractions in Ravello. Be sure to sign up for Mamma Agata's cooking school during one of your days if you like to eat - it's an outstanding experience.

I can't praise this hotel enough. Really!

My husband and I had our wedding reception here and it was better than anything I could ever have hoped for. The food...incredible. Breakfast was excellent. The waiters were all lovely and attentive..but in a discreet way...they didn't hover over you.

The hotel grounds are idyllic. The pool...wow. I love this place so much I was crying at reception not wanting to leave. And I really wish we hadn't left because we went onto a below par 5 star hotel in Capri afterwards. I rue the day!

I think we had originally booked a junior suite and were very lucky to be offered an upgrade. We had a beautiful private little garden terrace overlooking the coastline. I can't wait to go back..

The staff were incredible too. This is true luxury hotel. Ravello itself is so very pretty and again, magical.

I love!

Room Tip: we were in room 52...wonderful

This was our second trip to Hotel Caruso - this time to join friends for a fabulous birthday celebration. What a wonderful time we had - whether it was lounging at the pool, enjoying room service, or simply wandering through Ravello. Cooking lessons with executive chef Mimmo at the pool (with wine of course) was a wonderful experience. The view from the infinity pool must be the best in Italy and the Bellini's are a must. Attending the piono recital in Ravello was a special treat. The staff were amazingly attentive and accommodating.

Our Daughter and new son-in-law held their wedding reception at the Hotel Caruso at the begining of June and what an experience! It is the most stunning hotel with 'out-of-this-world' views.The staff were wonderful,they were very attentive and excellent at their jobs.They made every effort to make the wedding something to remember and all I can say is that they certainly managed it! Everything was wonderful,food excellent and dancing by the pool ended the day perfectly!A big thank-you to everyone at the Caruso.

My family and I have just spent 7nights T the caruso, the rooms were very clean with fantastic views. The staffs are very attentive but not too much. The front desk staff are always ready to help and assist make your stay perfect. The restaurants at both the pool and main building are very good, nothing phases them. Yes it's expensive, but you do get what you pay for. The Caruso has a feeling of being a guest in a private villa, not a tourist hotel. We look forward to returning soon.
