Arriving at Hotel La Conca Azzurra is indeed like stepping into another world. The hotel sits like a haven from the outside world, perched on the rocks with stunning Mediterranean views and a unique ambience and decor.
Just 4 km from the town of Amalfi, you will find this hotel, built completely into the rocks below the coastal road and above the famous caves - Emerald Grotto. However, there is no road noise at all as it is completely isolated. You have to enter into the hotel to appreciate its original essence and charm.
The artistic owner Salvatore Criscuolo has embellished the hotel and its decor with his charasmatic personality, and takes great care to make his guests feel comfortable. La Conca Azzurra has a small reception, a living room / lounge with a balcony and views, and a selection of the very special local handicrafts for sale from the local craftsmen and women.
The hotel has a fairly large restaurant for residents and also outside guests. You can dine inside or outside on the open terrace with stunning views. Salvatore is quite a hedonist, which is apparent when you see his selection of wines that he is more than happy to describe.
Another special feature of this charming hotel is the small private beach nestled below in between the rocks. This can be reached via many stairs leading from the hotel (open between June & September). There is a also a bar service and parking at the hotel. There is no access for children under 12 years old.
There are a total of 18 rooms, divided into three types, all of which are charmingly decorated and have a bathroom with a shower or bathtub, hairdryer, TV, telephone, mini-bar, safety deposit box, air conditioning and a private furnished balcony with direct sea views. Standard rooms have a limited sea view - either from the side or through the beautiful olive trees. Junior suites have a small sitting area and suites have an extra bedroom.
