Stayed for a week in this cliff top fabulous hotel overlooking the Bay of Amalfi with Sea views from every room, restaurant and pool.
The hotel is very clean with an Art Deco feel and staff are very helpful at all times.
10 mins by bus to Amalfi centre, or 40 mins walk. 30 mins bus to Positano.
The pool also overlooks the bay and is served by a small bar and snacks.
Clean pool towels daily. Free WiFi and air conditioned. Chose of four starters and main courses each night with local fish, pasta and meat dishes. Cocktails by Bonaventura finish the evening. Well done team, Hope to see you again.
After days of searching for the ideal hotel for our four day, first ever visit to the Amalfi Coast, finally settled on this 50 year old property at the edge of a cliff with a fantastic view of the sea overlooking towards Sicilly. I had almost booked a similar hotel in Amalfi Town overlooking the marina there but changed it to the Belvedere at the last moment as that hotel did not offer free car parking as the Belvedere. I wanted my rented Mercedes in a secure place.
My wife was at first was very disappointed to the point of being angry for selecting this hotel as she had vision Ed the hotel will be in Positano or a small town on the coast unlike the Belvedere which had nothing by its sides. She refused to get down from the car. I persuaded her to come and see it and after staying for a night we may rebook in a hotel of her choice. Upon entering the reception lobby we were greeted by cheerful reception staff. After checking into our room seeing with the balcony overlooking the sea, my wife relented her anger and slowly accepted it as a wonderful place to be in.
The room was big with a good sized balcony and the bathroom was also nice. We enjoyed our four nights there. The dinner choice everyday was expansive and must say was very delicious. The Maitre d was an excellent person. The swimming pool, set on the edge of a lower cliff is one of the largest in the area and has a fantastic view of the sea to the south.
However their were some minor deficient issues that needs the management's attention. The room locker needs to be a preper one instead of the miniscule one tucked inside the refrigerator. The cable TV system should be more user friendly then the complicated system. The breakfast could have had some variety every few days. The hotel could consider installing electronic doors in tandem with modern times. However all told and done, the Belvedere is a lovely place to stay in the Amalfi Coast.
Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights.
The view from our room was absolutely stunning (see photos).
The hotel is an older hotel - but is well maintained and has a retro feeling to it.
Free parking and breakfast were convenient as well as the bus stop across the street.
We also used the shuttle service to go to amalfi (4 Euro pp).
I would like to commemorate the staff at the hotel and especially Fernando at the front desk. During our stay and in the middle of the night, my wife felt ill and I went to the reception to get her some tea and water. Fernando went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable for the rest of the night. This really made a difference for us.
My husband and I come for the quiet, elegant “days of yore” vibe, especially the stately rooms with magnificent views, long corridors and (most of all) the great old school bartender. Take some time to look at all the amateur watercolors and oil paintings along the back wall of the bar—so many iconic images of Amalfi were shaped by various travelers. They make a nice counterpoint to many of the tourism textiles and ceramics that you see in all the shops. Don’t have an agenda when you check in just relax. Rooms are immaculate, and cleaning staff has never let their standards down. Dining room-prepare to be underwhelmed. HOWEVER, quality dining experiences on Amalfi coast are scarce and VERY overpriced, unfortunately hotels dining room is neither the worst nor the most expensive in the area. A minor ambience suggestion: get rid of the commercial pop radio station music piped in during dinner time, it cheapens the feel of the place. NOTE: Room 103, what the hotel defines as a “suite” was a whopping 343 USD/per night. Seriously? Owners need to take a closer look at their competition because this is not a suite. Not worth the price. Have stayed in some of their other rooms with balcony that are a much better proposition.
