Lots has been written about this hotel. It is all correct. The hotel had arranged for our pick up at Amalfi harbour at 03.00am after we left a party in Capri still at full swing, and we were whisked straight up to the Rosa Suite which is split on 22 levels and overlooks the beautiful blue sea. Nothing was missing, and the staff had even laid out a late night supper of Italian delicacies to welcome us. We only spent 2 nights and lazed by the pool most of the time, but we were definitely looked after as well as anywhere in the world. We ate at the lovely restaurant and watched the full moon reflect in the water far below. All-in-all it is an old world version of the Burj Al Arab (and without the gold and glitz) and definitely a place we will return to one day.
My niece and I had a wonderful experience at locanda they made us feel right at home as soon as we got out from our bus. The staff was very kind and helpful I will gladly recommend this hotel friends and family members overall experience perfect.

"Fabulous View, Great Base to Explore Amalfi Coast"
We found this hotel/B&B to be perfect for our needs. Irma upgraded us to a double room with private terrace which had a gorgeous view. Furore and this hotel is well up the mountain from the coast road and so it is like being perched on the side of a mountain with a bird's eye view of the coast and sea below. Our hostess, Irma was absolutely amazing. The day before our arrival, she had suffered a serious burn to her face in the kitchen. An injury that would have had most owners closing their resort, but Irma kept right on, smiling through the pain and working tirelessly to provide an excellent stay for us. Her breakfast was delicious with her homemade breads and jams. She is so kind about offering travel advice about what to see and helping to organize restaurant reservations etc. We were most impressed with her as a hostess and as a wonderful person.
The room is spacious, with a bar fridge, TV and very comfortable bed and a walkout to our own private and secluded terrace, the view from which is breathtaking!
It is a small hotel and so very quiet with only a few other guests. There is free parking a short distance away, but it is a bit of a climb to get to it. Also, there are steps down from the road making it difficult to get your luggage in and there are steps from the room to the breakfast and reception area, which would be challenging for some, but that is not unusual in Amalfi, which seems to be nothing but steps.
All in all, a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderfully peaceful place to stay away from the hassle of Amalfi. We had a car but chose not to drive as the road is rather challenging and the bus stops right outside. It was a great spot for exploring the coast and mountains - we also went to Capri from here.
The staff could not be more friendly or helpful - booking trips for us and sorting out problems with rental car. They even brought our washing in for us when we were late back!
Our room was delightful and had a huge balcony with a lovely view. Breakfast in the garden was charming each morning. The décor in the whole place is lovely and everything is spotless.
This is a great place to stay and highly recommended.

Pocket Guide: Amalfi Coast Fiordo di Furore Hotels
This stunning inlet, a narrow beach on the Tyrrhenian surrounded by high cliff walls, is said to have been a hiding place for bandits in times gone by. The picturesque buildings from the old village seem to climb up the rock face in the traditional style of the Amalfi coast, and there is a small museum in the old paper mill. A path leads visitors to the colorful village of Furore above.
