Concierge.com's insider take:

At the less fashionable eastern edge of the Amalfi Coast, set back from the sea on the leafy slopes above the ceramics town of Vietri sul Mare, this comfortably contemporary mini-resort has a few trump cards to make up for not being in Positano or Amalfi. One is the seclusion of the setting, another is ease of access: Vietri's proximity to the A1 freeway means that you save at least 30 minutes on journey times to Pompeii, Naples airport, and Rome compared to the western resort towns. Then there's the service: While the language skills of some of the staff could be improved, they are unfailingly courteous and helpful. Done out in a clean contemporary style without being coldly minimalist, the 22 rooms and suites all have terraces (some sea-facing, others with a park view) and—a nice touch—complimentary minibars. Spa staff can provide in-room treatments (there's also a single massage room), and the creative southern Italian in-house restaurant, though not cheap, is well worth an evening. One thing to bear in mind is that although there's an hourly shuttle service down to Vietri (five minutes away), you'll have a better experience in this out-of-the-way spot if you have your own wheels—unless of course you're just planning to chill out poolside.—Lee Marshall
