This hotel is situated at the top of the mountain, about a 15 minute drive from Amalfi. I went with my wife and stayed here for our honeymoon. They upgraded us for free to the room at the highest point of the hotel with our own roof terrace. The staff were extremely polite and were some of the nicest people we encountered on our trip. The pool is amazing and pictures we have taken are as if they are out of a magazine. The views from the hotel are outstanding.
They also offered free shuttle buses to Amalfi and Positano and back which was very good, as parking otherwise there is difficult. Also they offer a free boat trip along the coast which we stopped off for some swimming in the sea and free beer on the boat. You cna pay extra for your own boat trips to Capri and other places.
The food is over priced but its handy as you dont have to go far and can have it next to the pool.
The walk to the square is good and there are restaurants and bars there and is a short walk.
Amazing hotel in an amazing place. Would highly recommend if affordability is not an issue.
