We arrived at hotel Rufolo and were delighted with our room. Very clean and we'll appointed, take your own hair dryer though as one provided cut out every 30 seconds. We paid extra for one of the refurbished rooms overlooking the Villa Rufolo on the first floor. Very large room, light and airy with large bathroom with separate shower cubical, balcony is small but will accommodate 2 chairs and a small fixed table, sun in the morning. Breakfast was buffet style, inside or on the terrace, mainly continental with boiled eggs and a small quantity of scrambled egg. Breakfast suited us but if you fancy a knife and fork breakfast you will not get it a Hotel Rufolo. Staff were very friendly and efficient but only knowing us by out room number not name. Management were polite and always said good morning/good night but never made conversation or enquired if we were having a good holiday or happy with our stay. Restaurant was a beautiful room with terrace for warmer evenings, we dined once there. Our table was booked for 8.30, arriving 15 minutes early we thought we would have a drink before dinner. We were immediately escorted to our table and given menu's, within one hour we had eaten our starter and main course, main course being tuna which was cooked through and not pink so was dry. The pool is in a perfect spot, sun all day although no umbrellas for shade if you should require, sunbeds are good and towels are provided, drinks can be ordered and brought to you. We used the pool and were very disappointed when every day it appeared that the majority of people using it were not guests of the hotel. It must have been school holiday time in Ravello as children would arrive mid morning and play. We have no problem with children but when you pay over £320 per night for a hotel with a private pool you expect a private pool for guests.
Pros: wonderful location, beautiful room, nice breakfast especially on the terrace, very clean, lovely lounge/bar for morning coffee or afternoon tea if weather not warm enough to sit outside.
Cons: no personal touch especially by management, pool used by others apart from guests in school holidays, restaurant lacks atmosphere and personal touch.
