I think the attitude of the hosts can make or break a B&B - here, our hosts were extremely nice and helpful.
We received a local delicacy (a type of pastry) with our breakfast, apart from a croissant, and were also asked if we would like some bread, ham, or cheese.
I asked for tea in the evening for a sore throat and got a whole potful, with lemons and a lovely tea-set.
Our room had its own terrace.
The location is a bit out of the way, about 7-8kms from the main Amalfi road. I imagine that in summer, when Amalfi towns are swamped, it is a welcome getaway. Because you are high up, the views are great; also, the "fjord" is nearby.
It was a bit chilly (in March) and the AC took a while to heat up the place, and there is no heating in the bathroom itself; but we were comfortable.
Parking is simple and free.
