We stayed at the Hotel Bacco for three nights to chill out after four manic days running around Rome being tourists and seeing the sights. We could not have made a better choice!
The hotel is set in a glorious spot, high in the hills of the Amalfi coast with the most spectacular views over the sea and surrounding countryside. There is ample room to sit outside on the terraces including a delightful patio area underneath part of the hotel's own vineyard.
The rooms are spacious, well equipped and are cleaned every day to a high standard. If I had to criticize anything (and I am being VERY picky here), there was a slight smell in the bathroom. That said, give the amount of rain that fell in fairly short periods of time while we were there, the drainage system can well be forgiven for struggling to cope a little!
The real winner here is the service though. Without exception, every member of staff was polite, helpful and not just willing, but genuinely keen to share any information that they felt would make our stay enjoyable. The restaurant is excellent (especially if you like fish / seafood), and once I had notified them of my dietary requirement (I am coeliac), I did not have to mention it again for the entire duration of our stay and was presented with more gluten-free stuff than I could possibly eat! (Try the 'home brew' red wine, I would have brought a case home if i'd had the luggage space!)

Although the weather wasn't too good when we were there, this didn't detract from the spectacular views from this hotel, both in the restaurant and terrace and also from the balcony in our room. The hotel staff were all very friendly and willing to please while the rooms were kept spotlessly clean. The shower in the bathroom was probably the best we've had in a hotel anywhere. We stayed with a group of friends and it seems that all of the rooms are different but all with the best views. Would definitely stay here again!

We spent 6 days exploring the Amalfi coast, easily, as this hotel is a short walk to the buses and ferries.Antonella was extremely helpful with everything from phone calls to private transfers. The room was good and the breakfast was varied with great coffee.

A delightful 4 day night break in a smallish family run (?) hotel away from the usual tourist traps on the Amalfi Coast. The owners/ staff could not do more to accomodate us. Friendly, helpful and smiling always! Well situated to explore the coast wtih good bus/ boat connections and excellent dining in house and nearby.
The design and decor hark back to a previous age of chic and elegance, which although possibly dating the hotel also gave it a wonderful atmosphere. Immaculately clean and well maintained.
Dinner on the upper terrace with spectacular views west along the coast to Capri made for a wonderful occaision and the balcony of our room allowed a similar "sip and take in the view" experience.

We had a wonderful week in fabulous autumn sunshine at Villa San Michele: we loved our large, airy room with a great private terrace directly over the sea. The hotel is built into the cliff below the coast road (no traffic noise), with stupendous views from every room and in every direction, but is not one for people with poor mobility - there are about 350 steps (no lift) from the entrance, down through pretty gardens past the 12 bedrooms, to a super bathing platform with steps into the sea. Owner family and their staff all warm, friendly and helpful - great home-cooked food in the restaurant. You are about 5 minutes walk along quite a busy road from Atrani, nice little village, and another 10 minutes to Amalfi, touristy but very attractive, and starting point for lovely boat trips. Glorious Ravello is a tough but beautiful climb uphill, or buses stop directly outside the hotel. Highly recommended - hope to return one day!
