Hotel Marina Riviera Review

Once the site of fishermen's cottages—these structures are that close to the sea—this hotel graces a coastal promontory in Amalfi town itself. The heavily trafficked seaside road in front might seem like a deal killer, but because the Marina Riviera is on a bend, traffic is never fast, and therefore not noisy. By the time you ascend to the hotel's second floor, you might even imagine that you've escaped into a cocoon, one that's decorated with antique furniture, 18th-century ceramics, and vintage photos. And you'll feel right at home, thanks to the Gargano family, who greet you in the welcoming coved-ceiling reception area. Owner Antonio prides himself on his buffet-style breakfast (note the sugar sachets, adorned with photos of Antonio carrying the 1960 Olympic torch!). Each guest room is different, with ceramic fittings in the bathrooms. A thalasso pool and steam bath has recently been opened on the fourth-floor solarium.
