Positive Reviews

The personal touch.

The hotel is five star but, being family-owned, many feel the service, while undoubtedly professional, has a more personal, friendly feel than most similarly rated premises. Staff will quickly remember your favourite drink or seats of choice and deal with any minor issues swiftly.

Breathtaking grounds and views.

Santa Caterina is consistently rated as the best hotel on the Amalfi coast and, from the second you arrive, you will see why. The grounds are immaculately kept; with bougainvillea, olive groves and fruit orchards and sloping terraces down to the sea, white-washed walls contrast with the crystal blue sea and the views of the Mediterranean are, to most guests at least, unparalleled.

Exclusive beach club.

Frequently labelled the hotels best feature, the beach club is exclusive for guest use. Staff are on hand to supply you with everything you may need; from umbrellas, loungers and towels to snacks and cocktails. Access is easy thanks to two glass elevators to the beach and ladders into the sea.

Negative Reviews

High-end price bracket.

Santa Caterina is certainly not a budget option and, for most, the price is comparable to the quality, service and beauty of the hotel. Others, however, have found the restaurant and drinks in the bar to be prohibitively expensive.

Inconvenient shuttle service.

There is a useful shuttle service from the hotel into Amalfi. You may find, however, that the timings of this service don't match your plans; out of operation for several hours in the middle of the day and finishing late afternoon, some guests opt to find their own way back.

Additional fees.

On another price-related note, previous guests have been surprised that, considering the cost of accommodation, guests who choose to visit the spa facilities are charged for the privilege.
