0.72km from Torre dei NormanniOur tour package assigned us to this hotel for 3 nights. Again, we were thankful for this because this hotel was located across the street from the beach, and walking distance to numerous beach front restaurants and the ferry's to take you to the other places to visit like Positano and Salerno. We discovered that it is best to tour by ferry as you get to see more than when you are in a coach. The ferry is very efficient and timely. We were at the hotel from October 4 -7, so of course the water at the beach was too cold for us to swim. There were some brave people swimming though. The hotel charges 15 euros at this time of the year for two beach chairs and an umbrella for the day. However, a good tip is to walk down the strip and you could find a beach front restaurant that charges less. We found one that charged 7 euros for the day, so we took our towels from the hotel - it is provided in the room for the beach, and spent a day at the beach without going in for a swim. It was very relaxing. The restaurant brought food and drinks to you if you wanted that. It is called Lido la Bussola, and one important note is that their washroom is clean and you do not have to pay to use it. Our breakfast and dinner was included in our package and thankfully the food at this hotel was very good. Our server Geraldo was so welcoming and helpful. All the servers should follow his lead because he was the best one there. Always a smile and a welcome. The female servers were very friendly and welcoming too. A few negative notes - we asked for a late check out as we were not being picked up until late in the day. We were told repeatedly that they had new guests checking in the next day and could not allow us to remain in our room past 11:00 am. We happened to be in the lobby for most of the day and not one new guest checked in, so blatant lying is not customer friendly. Maybe this is a thing with boutique hotels they did not provide boxed tissues, and only provided one tiny bar of soap per day - which is insufficient if you are having two or more showers per day. we had to keep calling down for supplies for the room which was a total inconvenience. Despite all of this we will revisit this hotel because of its location and its delicious food. The staff who cleaned our room was very good, despite the language barrier we managed to communicate. She was great - kept our room very clean. We were in room 303 -which gives a view of the beach as well as the shopping area.
