A Magical and Romantic Place to Stay!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 18, 2011

We recently stayed at the Santa Caterina Hotel in Amalfi, Italy and simply put, there are not enough superlatives to describe the experience. The staff took service to a level that we found to be unparalleled. The hotel is a family owned business and the employees act as though they are part of that family. It was common to find personnel who had worked there 15, 20, 30 and more years. The hotel restaurant featured dinners that made us look forward to returning the next evening for another culinary feast. If something was not on the menu, they were very amenable to preparing a meal to our wishes. For example, a day in advance, we requested tiramisu for dessert the next evening, and they were happy to grant my request. It was the best tiramisu we’ve ever had! Bruno, who played the piano during dinner, made two of our nights in the hotel restaurant absolutely unforgettable, as he played American and Italian songs with great talent and interpretation. The waiters also made every meal a special event and were friendly without interfering into the private feel of the dinner.

The hotel décor was elegant, and the painted ceramic tiles in the lobby were breath-taking. Lemon trees were blossoming during our stay, and their fragrance added to the ambiance. The rooms are clean and well decorated. The suite in which we stayed the final four nights was private, modern, and a welcome retreat from our busy lives. The large square Jacuzzi tub built into the floor of the suite was amazing.

Two additional comments for prospective guests – if you miss the hotel shuttle service, the 1 km cab ride from Amalfi to the hotel is 10 Euros. Secondly, bring your clothes pressed or bring clothes that travel well, because we were told the hotel cannot provide an iron due to an Italian fire code. To have two shirts and one pair of pants ironed costs 28 Euros.

Finally, because our wedding took place in the hotel garden, we must add that the hotel staff truly went the extra mile in ensuring that every detail of our wedding plan was executed to perfection. It was an amazing, magical stay at the Hotel Santa Catarina! We look forward to going back someday.

What a beautiful place

We started our honeymoon out at the Santa Caterina for 6 days......what a beautiful place. Everything was absolutely wonderful including the friendly staff. You were addressed by your names every morning. The food was amazing at the restaurant. The views from the room were breathtaking. We are were happy that we chose Italy for our honeymoon. There really was not one thing that we could complain about it. Complete Paradise. Hope to go back eventually.

Simply "Paradise"

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Hotel Santa Caterina is, simply put, Paradise! As an international tour operator I have had the opportunity to stay in many of the top 5-star hotels and resorts throughout the world. Never before have I experienced such beautiful surroundings (the Amalfi coastline, wow!) or such attentive and knowledgeable staff! From the minute we arrived for our 3 night stay celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary, to the moment when we returned 5 days later to pick up our rental car, which the hotel so kindly allowed us to leave there while we spent 4 nights on Capri, the entire staff were wonderful and oh so friendly – the door porter, the shuttle van drivers, the wait staff, the bartender, the front desk staff, and Franco, the best concierge anywhere!

The décor is lovely, bright, many antiques throughout and beautiful floral arrangements daily. With so many hotels throughout Europe going the ultra-modern high-tech décor route, this was a welcome respite. The gardens are lovely and require a stroll. The location is great as you are just minutes from Amalfi town, about a 20 minute drive to Positano, a little more to Ravello, yet as it is located on the outskirts of town you avoid the crowds of tourists, thus a very relaxing stay.

Actually, the first room they put me in was old, dark, dinky and shabby. Very disappointing. Since I arrived late (the drive by the way was hair-raising) I decided to crash and deal with it later. I had read in a reputable guidebook that that hotel had partly undergone renovation so I told the front desk and demanded a newly refurbished room. They gave me a beautiful room with a private terrace, superb views, a raised bath/jacuzzi so I can look out into the ocean while bathing. Nice indeed!

Unique Quality: The new rooms had a mixture of moden appointments, new and antique furniture. Very tastefully done. Great views even from the restaurant. There is an elevator that takes the guests to the rocks below for swimming, snorkelling or sun worshipping.
