Fodor's Review

When Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton wanted to escape, they headed here and little wonder. Owned by the Gargano family for generations, this quietly elegant, supremely comfortable, and very cherished hotel has long been one of the treasures of the coast. Indeed, many guests have been coming here since great-grandmother's day. Just outside Amalfi proper, giving it a grand vista of the town, the Santa Caterina takes full advantage of its hillside location. There are vast, terraced gardens and orchards overlooking the sea, and down by the water is a luscious seawater-pool area, complete with an idyllic thatched-roof, open-air café. The lobby is charmingly coved, while decor is unobtrusively traditional, with Belle Epoque accents. The luckiest guests are allowed to book the hotel's extraordinary, 19th-century hunting-box chalet, set at water's edge at the far end of the hotel's romantic orchards.
