Reviews for Palazzo Avino
If the Amalfi coast is not on your bucket list, it definitely needs to be!!! You have plenty of villages to stay at such as the most popular like Positano and Amalfi, but they can be quite hectic. To avoid the bustle you can stay in the quiet beautiful mid evil village of Ravello, it definitely is a must see destination. Just a short drive from Amalfi thru gorgeous terraced gardens, it is here that you will get some of the most amazing views of the Amalfi coast. Here I stayed at the Palazzo Avino formerly known as the Palazzo Sasso, which got its name from the prominent Sasso family who settled here in 1710. It was formerly a 12th century villa and converted into a hotel in 1997. They offer 10 suites and 33 rooms all decorated with handmade tiles by Vietri and antique furnishings all rooms offer amazing views. They have a spa, pool and a workout center, you can enjoy all while taking in the amazing scenery. They even offer a beach club just a short 15 minute shuttle drive, which offers some of the best pizzas! So come and enjoy this amazing 5 star luxury hotel, you wonâ€™t regret it!

Ravello is such a cool town...out of the fray in Amalfi and other coastal cities. This hotel has fabulous views, great staff, awesome restaurant and pool, spa- you name it. Voted top honeymoon hotel in years past.

A true pink palace in the sky! From the moment you arrive down the small side street in sleep Ravello, and walk through the green door of Palazzo Avino you definitely know you have arrived. The stunning view directly out into the sea, high above in the cliffs of Ravello is truly something you will not forget! We were greeted by the wonderful staff who told us the room was not quite finished but showed us out onto the patio for lunch while they took care of checking us in. We even got to enjoy the spa (which was very nice) and use our credit for massages right after lunch. The front desk staff is wonderful, often giving recommendations when asked and accommodating every need you might have during your stay. We opted for a few excursions and activities while we stayed, each one was better then the next. Our room (301) was stunning, expansive and very private. We had a private balcony overlooking the adjacent garden and sea views as far as the eye could see. It felt as if we were in a castle! The king bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and beautifully updated. The maid service took great care of us while we were there as well. While you can simply enjoy the property, gardens, pool and solarium, we opted to utilize the STUNNING private beach club off premises just a 20 minute shuttle away each day we stayed. I suggest you book your times well in advance as they only allow a certain amount of people to be there at once, which is actually a great thing. There are no crowds, obnoxious music, just the peaceful sound of the water which was great for swimming. Marilena and the rest of the staff there waited on us each day as we were set up, delivered drinks, bringing our bags up and down, given drinks, lunch etc. The wood burning pizza oven at the beach club was our favorite as well as the vongole pasta (still dreaming about it). We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast spread every day, the staff made sure everything was perfect. Our last night we opted to have a casual yet romantic dinner at Terrazza Belvedere instead of the Michelin starred Rossellinis but honestly both are amazing. Gianluca and the bar staff at the martini bar also took great care of us for evening cocktails as well as nightcaps while we listened to the live piano player. You can stroll into town from here, just a short and peaceful walk down into the main square. There are plenty of apertiv bars, restaurants/trattoria's (we enjoyed Vittoria!), as well as small shops and gelateria's All in all this was THE PERFECT first stop on our honeymoon before heading over to the Il San Pietro in Positano (both hotels know and respect each other greatly). You will not find a better place to stay in Ravello. While we didn't stay at the adjacent Belmond Hotel Caruso (which is also beautiful), we did have drinks there, and in our opinion we thought the Palazzo Avino was more updated, younger crowd and intimate. To all the staff, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for treating us like family, we can only hope to return one day to see you all again! Sincerely, The Alfieris

I hate to give a review so less people will know of this great hotel. This is a wonderful hotel with a fabulous location and a great staff. Antonio and his front desk staff are like family. They can never do enough for you. The dining staff is also great. Love to eat on the terrace and breakfast is always the best way to start a day here. Also, do not miss the beach club for an relaxing afternoon!

This hotel in our view has to be one of the best hotels in the world. The rooms are not large, but the view makes up for that. The staff are brilliant, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble for them, they bend over backwards to please. The food in the hotel is second to none and competitively priced Can't wait to go back.
