We stayed here in May as a center point to view nearby towns. I'll start of by saying the hotel is beautifully clean and the staff are very welcoming. Our room was just beautiful we had the superior room 108 and is was lovely, although there is a dog next door which does do a bit of barking which I had no patience for when I wanted to sit on the balcony and relax. The pool is on the roof top and is very clean but very very cold. If you like a proper full English breakfast then this one is not for you, the sausages are tiny little hotdogs, bacon was tiny, scrambled egg was a little runny for my liking and the mushrooms were just a no to me. They did have options of cakes and cereals along with fruit and yogurt. Water bottles are cheaper in the local village than in the room (you get charged for everything in the minibar). There is a shuttle bus provided by the hotel that when arranged can take you to Vietri, we walked there in the daylight and only took 10 minutes, come out of the hotel and turn left and walk over the bridge. I might add that this is not safe for children to do as Italians please themselves on the road. You can also get taken to the sister hotel up the hill where we dined for one night and spent a day in the spa which is lovely. Vietri has a couple or nice restaurants but they close through the day and reopen at half 7 in the evening. Pompei is a 30 minute train journey (train station is up the stairs from fame zero in Vietri) which you can buy train tickets for 3 euros a person from the ceramic shop in vietri - there's a sign out side the shop. Pompei is 15 euros each to get in but is amazing. St Andrews cathedral is well worth the trip to Amalfi. You can get to Amalfi from Salerno by ferry for 8 euros each or bus if your'e a fighter. Salerno is great for shopping and is 15 minutes from Vietri, The buses are fine if you like to push and shove your way through crowds to ensure you get on even if you already have a ticket. The beach if you can call it that is a 30 minute walk down through Vietri. We struggled to find a variety of food in Vietri choices are generally pizza, small quite boring portions of pasta, tiny and I mean tiny steaks and seafood which even as a lover of seafood I didn't go near for the whole week oh and lots of ice cream. We were a bit miffed at how rude the Italians were in not just this area of Vietri but Amalfi and Salerno to, this could be down to the lack of English they speak. We were looking at this place as a choice of a wedding venue but it wasn't for us. Again the hotel is spotless and the staff were friendly, this area just wasn't for us.
