    Il Saraceno Grand Hotel We loved our stay at the Il Saraceno Grand Hotel. I went with my husband and aged parents. I did a lot of research into hotels in the area and this one really provided the facilities (pool/sea/room balcony) I wanted for a much better price (comparable was more than triple the price!). The staff were fantastic, room very nice, all very clean, beds comfortable. The decor was not uber modern, so if that's what you're looking for this hotel is not for you. The pool was great and the sea crystal clear. All was accessible by lift, but still involved steps, so if you have trouble walking or with arthritis, it could be a problem. My only criticism would be that the food was on the whole quite uninspiring - the hotel could make much more out of its restaurant and terrace area, perhaps serving dinner on the terrace. And the menu became tedious after one week's stay - there were no daily specials, which is understandable considering most of the guests did not use the restaurant - so a bit of a catch 22. Also, at the beach the only lunch options were cheese and ham toastie/cheese and tomato foccacia/tuna foccacia. Again, after a week this became annoying. So please marvellous people at the Saraceno, improve your food! Would definitely go again, however, despite this. Service was always prompt, even at breakfast. Breakfast definitely the best meal of the day - different fresh fruit every morning and a wide choice of breads/cereals etc and hot food. Amazing views and every room with a sea view.

    Il Saraceno Grand Hotel This 5 star property has a beautiful pool and separate beach. Our stay was wonderful! The room was a bit dated but the property is one of the best in the Amalfi area. The restaurant was good. The hotel is a few miles from the town of Amalfi but they have a shuttle bus service for free. We will come back!

    Il Saraceno Grand Hotel Excellent in most respects. Being out of season, some of the services could have been improved, but we understood the shortage of staff. Beautiful facility with great rooms, views and location.
