Advice on Amalfi Coast hotels (and yes I have researched)

Jump to last reply

Ok...first off, I know everyone always refers people to the numerous postings already but I'm really struggling with a balancing price (less important), view and luxury. We are set on Positano and Capri (two nights each). I think La Minerva looks like a great option but Positano is where I'm stumped.

Poseidon and Punta Regina look nice at a reasonable price but I have to say the rooms look pretty tired and worn and in my opinion the greatest view in the world doesn't offset a dumpy room.

Palazzo Murat looks like a nice garden but seems like the views may be lacking.

I tend to like saying in the top hotel (love the Savoy in Florence and the St. Regis in Rome) but Le Sirenuse just does not seem worth the price differential (especially given that it sounds like the lower level rooms aren't worth it). Some say just go to Le Sirenuse for drinks but I don't want to show up there for a drink and then e bummed about heading back to my second rate hotel.

Appreciate any thoughts between the balance of view, location, luxury and price (and if he rooms seem as tired as they appear in the pics). Thanks
