Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Marina Riviera

Via Pantaleone Comite 19, Amalfi, Campania, 84011, Italy

This hotel graces a coastal promontory, once the site of fisherman's cottages, in Amalfi town itself, so many of the rooms and the breakfast terrace have dreamy views. 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 too fast. 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. Each guest room is different, with ceramic fittings in the bathrooms. A thalasso pool and steam bath has recently been opened on the third-floor solarium.
