Reviews for Palazzo Avino
It's hard to explain in words just how wonderful Pallazo Avino is. When you arrive you are greeted by a bell boy who takes your bags while you take a stroll down to the hotel entrance, you are greeted with the most unbelievable view. It is quite literally breathtaking. We arrived around lunchtime and our room wasn't ready so they showed us to the terrace where we had a drink. It was so nice and relaxing, you literally feel like you are in the clouds because you are so high up overlooking the mountains and the sea, it's incredible. Our room was lovely, a bit smaller than what we are usually used to so we couldn't 'unpack', We stayed in a king room-mountain side, it had everything we needed and every little luxury you could think of. The maids tidied and cleaned it every single time we left which was lovely! Beds are so comfy, bath is amazing, towels are fluffy and the hairdryer actually works. The staff are beyond lovely at the hotel, it felt like being part of a family. Everyday they greet you with a smile and have a little chat with you. The grounds around the hotel are exquisite, the flowers and waterfalls are gorgeous and the pool is BEAUTIFUL. I really enjoyed reading my book, it's so peaceful. They also have an outside gym which I used every morning. I highly recommend their beach club, they run a free shuttle from the hotel. The staff at the beach club were some of the best in Italy. So attentive even though they are running up and down the steps all the time, nothing is to much trouble. It was my favourite beach club to visit during our long stay across the Amalfi coast. The food is the best I have had in Italy, the courgette linguine was my FAVOURITE, in fact I hope they send me the recipe because I would love to be able to make this at home! The drinks and the snacks are top notch, I loved sitting on the terrace everyday and relaxing with my husband. We had dinner at Rosellinis and did the tasting menu with wine paring which I highly recommend it was amazing. I wish we had eaten there twice because the menu had so much choice! Other restaurants within Ravello that I recommend are Mimi Pizza, it does the BEST pizza and also Vittoria for the best Gnocchi you will ever have! All in all I cannot wait to return to beautiful Ravello and the pink palace! Thank you Palazzo Avino for making our stay the best and helping us make some lasting memories x

We spent 13 days in Italy. Our son was celebrating a bday and this spot was to start our relaxation portion before we ended in Rome. From the moment you walk in you will be blown away. The views are spectacular, the staff is friendly and attentive and there is nothing you don't ask for that they find a way to arrange for you including arranging a car pickup at the train station for the next hotel your are travelling too. We stayed in the infinito Suite which admittedly was pricey but was money well spent to celebrate a big occassion. Rent a boat and spend a day on the sea, was the number one highlight of all family members for our stay in Italy. This place does it right, think Pretty Woman - and the scenery and the town of Ravello will just blow you away. Close enough to Positano etc but far enough to relax. On the Amex Platinum list of Top Hotels, many on the list I disagree with, this is one that belongs at the top for Italy.

Lovely property to relax and enjoy Ravello. August was very busy and we felt there were not enough chairs at pool or terrace bar to accommodate guests but they did what they could to accommodate. Next time I would come June or Sept

My husband and I stayed at the Palazzo Avino for 4 nights at the beginning of April. Because of the language barrier, I had great difficulty getting our bording passes printed for our return trip home. Not only did Antonio step in and take care of it all himself, he also helped me get my suitcase that had ripped in transit fixed by his maintainance staff. Top notch service with a smile, very efficient and accommodating. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Our second visit and such a treat to return to this beautiful hotel in this magical town. The staff is so welcoming , helpful, and eager to please. Emanuela was an excellent correspondent. Antonio is always happy to give great cultural advice (we heard a wonderful jazz concert). Jacqueline made our transportation arrangements so easy for us and Valentina came through with our train tickets, In fact, all of the reception staff is terrific (as are the porters, housekeeping and kitchen staff). Our room was attractive with a partial view of the sea. Lovely linens and soaps. Nice bathroom. We were treated to a delicious bottle of proseco which was a nice surprise. Public spaces are beautiful. Breakfast is the best- gorgeous local cheeses, meats, salmon and other smoked fish, great bread , pastries, fruit... Then there is the beach club which is glorious. Great sun beds and the sea and the scenery are superb. Lunch is delicious and staff is again, very lovely. What a pleasure to return to such a special place. Ravello and Palazzo Avino are unique and wonderful.
