Description
Hotel Smeraldo is a pearl in the hearth of Amalfi Drive. The hotel opened in 1957 in Praiano, at the time, an old fishing village. From its panoramic terraces, in addition to gazing upon the splendour of ...More Li Galli islands, guests can also admire the enchanting view of Positano as well as captivating Capri with its Faraglioni.All rooms overlook the sea and are served by a lift and have private bathroom, heating and air-conditioning system, telephone, TV and terrace.The Hotel also has a parking lot with an automatic gate, where you can safely park your car. An excellent restaurant, specializing in local dishes, overlooks the bay of Positano and Capri.The garden, lobby, bar lounge, and staircase to the beach are all enjoyable and convenient attributes of the Hotel.But it is the warmth and kindness of the owners that make this the perfect vacation spot both during the relaxing winter season as well as the lively summer season.
