This is a great hotel in a beautiful location. The view from every room is incredible. The food is very good. The location is convenient to Cetara, just a short walk away. I stayed only one night, but I wish I could have stayed much, much longer.

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful hotel for 5 nights in early October. Our room was bright and comfy with beautiful ceramic blue and yellow patterned tiles on the floor and a wonderful king-sized bed with a gauzy canopy overhead. Our room balcony overlooked the sea from which we watched gorgeous sunsets over the peninsula. The bar... More

Had a lovely stay here for 5 nights. Staff were brilliant and could not have been more helpful from reception all the way to house keeping. Special mention here for Carmina in the La Carrube bar - fantastic cocktails and the most welcoming host you could imagine. I would recommend popping up to the bar just for that. Room was... More

We spent a few days here as part of our friend's wedding celebration which was a complete success. Dinner at the Falabella terrace was wonderful. The staff was helpful though most of them only spoke Italian. The negative parts were that our room was super noisy and if you like taking showers, prepare to be disappointed.

This is a fantastic hotel on the Amalfi Coast. A real 'get away from it all' hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean and offer the most amazing views. The private beach is lovely and the breakfast was good. The hotel has parking which is essential if you have hired a car. We ate in the restaurant which was good... More

We stayed at Hotel Cetus for 4 days and enjoyed it. Wonderful private beach, stunning view, wonderful breakfast and kind staff. The parking was easy and free. Amalfi is a 30 minutes drive and Positano is almost one hour. If I think of a negative, the bathroom is a little bit small and wifi is not working in the rooms... More

The views make the place, breathtaking! The old style hotel is very nice. Would be 5 star review if not for the rather stuffy, annoyed staff. Private beach is quite nice. Walk up to the little fishing village for a relaxing authentic feel of real, warm Italian people.

We had just left a horrible hotel south of Solerno "Hotel Olimpico" and raced up the Amalfi coast looking for anything. We pulled up to Hotel Cetus and had the good fortune to get a room. It was a lovely jr. suite with a large terrace hanging over the sea. Built into the rocks, the views from our room, reception... More
