Editorial review:

This beautiful hotel is built into the side of a cliff and overlooks the Mediterranean. There's an incredible outdoor glass elevator that takes guests to the seawater pool. The food and service were praised by guests. It's charming and graceful, but some feel that the rooms aren't as nice as they could be.

Overview

Hotel Santa Caterina of Amalfi is a special place to experience the finest of Italian hospitality and lasting sensations of wellbeing. It is a member of the Leading Small Hotels of the World.

The elegant Hotel Santa Caterina, a superb, privately owned retreat in a stunning location, is stylish and luxurious with service to match.

All guest rooms have air conditioning, telephone, refrigerator, hair dryer, satellite television, and a private terrace. The suites are the most striking of all, each fully equipped with a Jacuzzi and hand-painted ceramic tiles. Classic Italian interiors, quintessentially Mediterranean architecture and the style of the villas of Amalfi: all of Hotel Santa Caterina's rooms are spacious and filled with light, with floors in antique hand painted majolica, marble bathrooms with brass fixtures, and balconies with view over the sea of Amalfi or the garden.

The restaurant, bar, and lounge all offer breathtaking views over the water.

                        Everything about this hotel makes you feel special. The service is amazing - friendly, efficient, personal, anticipating your every need. Yes it is pricey, but then so is everything on the Amalfi coast. A 3* hotel here costs about the same as a 5* elsewhere, so in relative terms the Sta Caterina isn't that outrageous. If you can afford it, then don't bother looking elsewhere. The hotel is not so grand or imposing from the outside, but inside is elegant, and the beautiful terraced gardens are a joy to wander around. Two tips: (1) it is worth paying extra for a room with a sea view - the facilities will be a bit better, and it will be well away from the road (which is not a major problem, but it is there); and (2) if flying in to Naples airport, ask the hotel to arrange transfers for you. It costs Eur120 each way, which seems a lot, but is actually the going rate if you were to arrange it yourself, and if the hotel does it then you can rely on things going like clockwork. Like everything else.

                        The hotel staff were fantastic at all levels. The food was very good. And the location near the town of Amalfi affords you the opportunity to walk into town which is not always the case on the Amalfi coast with its winding roads and long distances between towns.

                        LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION and the access to the sea/pool area - absolutely unbeatable and worth the money. You feel like you've stepped into another world. Breakfast buffet was also excellent. It's a little bit of a hike to and from the town of Amalfi but not too far away and the hotel has a shuttle for certain times of day. Also a great fitness center (with sea views to boot) which is rare in many Italian hotels.

                        Not all staff lived up to standards - service and attitude at the pool area could have been better in my opinion - you always had to hunt down the staff to order drinks. Also, should have provided free water at the pool area, esp in the hot summer months.

                        Extremely friendly and helpful staff, beautiful location. The junior suite had a marvellous view

                        a Hotel in this category should not extra charge guests for use of the sauna.
