Travel Blogs from Amalfi
The Arrivals Hall at Naples Airport was quietening down after a busy day receiving thousands of visitors to the Italian Riviera. I paced up and down in front of the Information Desk as people passed by and then disappeared into the distant shadows of the main hall. I went outside to ask the local taxi drivers for a price to take Suzi and I to …
... I was back in elementary school and they had signed up to be our chaperones for the day. They explored even more ruins by finally making it to Pompeii on Saturday. I unfortunately couldn’t make it with them on this trip as I was battling a cold all week and desperately needed some time to sleep. I was very impressed with their abilities to get on the train, purchase the tickets, and discover a whole town of ruins ...
... is spectacular. I sat in the front set of the bus and could see over the cliff edges when the bus got too close to the edge. The driver had to negotiate lots of other buses, trucks, cars and narrow roads on the drive to Amalfi. I clapped the driver when we got off the bus. The ride was better than a Dreamworld ride. We were worried about contacting the people we were to meet at the air bnb accommodation. However the fellow was there waiting for us when the bus arrived. ...
... goodnight, we took the cushions below, and covered the top-side bed with plastic. A very quick Grand Mariner, and we said good night.... Bon Nuit.... POSITANO Positano is a village and comune on the Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana), in Campania, Italy, mainly in an enclave in the hills leading down to the coast. It was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, and prospered during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, the town ...
... We stopped into a little deli for some snacks, and saw they sold a Litre beer in a can!! Of course Lachie had to try it so we bought one and shared it on the walk back which was epic - it was a like drinking out of a can of peaches. We then made our way down to the beach near our place again, down the 476 stairs to the beach. It had been raining on and off during the day so we tried our chances and hired a kayak for an hour. Kayaking was hilarious!! Lachie had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Miramalfi Hotel
Have just come home from a magical stay at Miramalfi October 2004. The hotel location and panoramic views are TO DIE FOR. If you can fault this hotel, you are too fussy. We had meals in the fabulous glass walled restaurant listening to the 3 Tenors. Atmosphere plus! You get breakfast and a 4 course supurb dinner included in the rate per night. It is exceptional value. The wait staff were all very accomodating and went out of their way to look after us. The pool is just gorgeous carved into the cliffs and the ocean diving platform is equally impressive. Amalfi is the best location on the coast and the town has the best essence of Italy. Try the local cheeses too - Bellissimo! Don't stay at Positano - catch the ferry and day trip. You'll love every bit of Amalfi! It's amazing.
We spent a wonderful week at the Miramalfi in July this year. Could not fault the hotel - perfect location and we particularly enjoyed the food! The staff were wonderful, especially in the restaurant and bar. So friendly, so welcoming and we'll definitely be back!
Let me premise this by saying that I absolutely agonized over choosing this hotel. I had no idea what town to stay in and then what hotel!?! I was very torn between staying in Amalfi or Positano, I even debated the little towns in between but decided against because they are not really towns and don't have a variety of restaurants, shops, etc. I am very satisfied with having stayed here.
Perfect location, professional and friendly staff, exceptional value.
My husband and I spent 2 nights in this hotel in our latest vacation, mostly based on the reviews i saw from this web site. The view and breakfast were good, however the room didn't meet our expectations. We got a superior room, with jacuzzi!, but know the jacuzzi you would hope for.... decor was boring and room lacked of little details such as conditioner or body lotion, details you can expect from a hotel that charged me 120 Euros per person! and is about 1 1/2 mile from town. I guess I got a little spoiled after spending couple of nights at The Vesuvio (best hotel in Naples) La Residenza (Capri), Park Hotel Miramar (Ischia) or Albergo Miramara (Positano)were I paid less, got beautiful rooms and all them with ammenities ranging from sleepers and vanity kits to free excursion boat. Miramalfi is more of a 3 star hotel.
Stayed at the Miramalfi at the end of May and it certainly contributed to a wonderful week in Amalfi -The rooms were immaculate - as if they had just been freshly decorated and the decor was simple and charming. The views from the balcony were stunning and waking up to the waves crashing on the rocks below was beautiful. The staff were very efficient and friendly and the food in the restaurant was very good (and very filling!). Breakfast on the terrace, looking out onto Amalfi bay was certainly a special experience. Another high point is the swimming pool, carved into the rock. There are lots of different secluded levels containing sun loungers, all looking out to a view of the bay and gradually descending to diving off points into the clear, green sea water. It takes about 10 minutes to walk into the centre of Amalfi. I would definately recommend a stay at the Miramalfi to anyone that is looking for a relaxing and special holiday.
Exceeded our expectations!
My husband and I and my brother and his wife stayed at the Miramalfi off-season for two nightsduring late March, 2003. We had a marvelous time on the Amalfi Coast and loved Hotel Miramalfi!Our rooms were spacious, immaculate, had modern tiled bathrooms and the views from ourprivate balconies were awesome. We appreciated the convenient parking and also the excellent complementary breakfasts. The staff was veryhelpful and I especially want to thank Mr. Manciero,who we never met, for his prompt replies to our E-mail inquiries. I would like to add that we are senior citizens and highly recommend this hotel for our age group. The hotel's website is miramalfi
Great views, great food, great service.
Fantastic views - especially at night with a full moon. My wife and I are in our late 20s and loved this place. Its a bit less extravagant than the Santa Caterina (stayed there last year), but for the traveler who wants a great room at a great price, with the same views and luxury you would expect from a four star, this is the place. The formality was less than that of the Caterina as well, so if you visit for the fun of it, and not the glitz, you'll feel right at home. My suggestion, if you plan to visit Italy more than once, would be to stay here when your young, stay at the Santa Caterina in your 30's - 80's.
