This really is a special spot without being overcrowded and commercial. You will find more peace here than you will in Amalfi town just 3 km away, but be near enough to visit by bus when you want. The beach below the hotel is very inviting and is a mix of sand, rocks and pebbles in an incredibly scenic setting.
The centre of town and the small beach below can be reached on foot via some stairs, and the trip down - and back up - is definitely worth the effort. The town is one of the most photographed on the Amalfi Coast, and it acts as a cover photo on almost all guidebooks for the area, and you can take a swim from the small beach. But it doesn't mean that it attracts many tourists - far from it. It has instead attracted scores of celebrities over the years, several of which still spend their summers right here. They include the Fiat-Agnelli Family, Emanuele Filiberto and princely family of Monaco, whose children have been baptized in the small local church.
The building originally dates from 1967 but it was converted to a hotel in 1988 by the Esposito family - Prudente is still responsible for the daily management along with the very friendly and service minded staff. There is parking on the roof, a lift, a reception, a restaurant and breakfast room with a large terrace. At the nearby beach there are a few restaurants with cosy terraces. There are no problems with traffic noise, because of the hotel's location.
There are a total of 29 rooms which are all nicely but simply decorated in pastel colours that harmonize well with the surroundings. All rooms have a telephone, satellite TV, internet connection, a safety deposit box, air conditioning, a balcony or a terrace and a bathroom with shower or bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries.
Standard Rooms have partial sea views.
Superior Rooms have direct ocean views.
