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!)

We greatly enjoyed our stay here, the owner was very accommodating, spectacular views of the ocean from the room, the room was very nice with a balcony overlooking the sea, breakfast was fantastic on the patio with a cappuccino and amazing croissants, and a very peaceful environment. The only drawback was that it is about a 30 min bus ride into Amalfi on the SITA buses which was further than we had anticipated. Getting there by bus was also a bit of a chore. Definitely e-mail them before you go to get directions or bus schedules. If you don't mind the bus ride then there are no drawbacks. If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful place to stay on the Amalfi coast this is a great choice.

A gorgeous family run farm where the owners , Nicolo and Mikela went out of their way to make us feel at home. They made sure every need was met and special mention needs to be made of Rosario, the local taxi driver, whom Nicolo arranged to have as our private driver. No way were we tackling those roads in a hire car. Rosario was a wealth of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble for him. Antonio, the waiter was outstanding too. Breathtaking views and amazing food with homegrown delicacies at incredibly reasonable rates. Nicolo and Mikela you made our last few days in Italy memorable and special. Hope to make it back to your little piece of heaven again one day.

A very simple B&B which we could not fault.
Its a perfect half-way to explore the whole area from Sorrento to Salerno, and perfectly situated between Amalfi to the east and Positano to the west. Irma, our 'landlady' could not have been more helpful. Breakfasts were a delight on the terrace every morning (sure, we had the right weather for it), home made pastries and marmalades were the highlight. Our room was clean and spacious, with ensuite and roof terrace with stunning view over the ocean - great if you want private sunbathing. But there is so much to see in the coastal towns nearby there was little time to sunbathe, and Irma was so helpful with directions, best places, where to get the great value all-day bus tickets, etc.
Its VERY steep in the whole area, dont be put off by the difficulty of manoevring a car, its the same anywhere here!

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.
