Hotels in Cilento Coast

What began in the 1930’s as a single house rented by future hotel mogul Carlino Cinque is now a bougainvillea-covered, 16-room hotel just 200 steps (albeit vertical) from Positano.

This stylish setting on the Gulf of Naples can be a bit of a scene, which is exactly what makes the centrally located—yet oh-so-tranquil—Capri Tiberio Palace a welcome addition.

In an area known for tradition, this cliffside hotel in Praiano displays a surprising amount of modern design.

Perched on the promontory at the edge of town for the best views over the rooftops and up the coastline, this gorgeous old cloister was reportedly founded in 1222 by St. Francis himself.

Intimate property—just 30 rooms—on one of the most peaceful stretches of the Italian island. 



This 11th-century palace perched 1,056 feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea on a limestone bluff, was once favored by celebrities (Jackie Kennedy, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart). There’s also a heated infinity pool, private gardens, and two restaurants.

Stay just outside the village at the Hotel Capo La Gala, a stone-studded cliffside lodge. The hotel has a nautical theme: porthole windows and hurricane lamps in the lobby, blue-and-white guest rooms accented with miniature model boats.

Art-filled Mediterranean hotel in Anacapri with the 10,800-square-foot Capri Beauty Farm, one of Italy's best spas.

Room to Book: Couples enjoy the Deluxe Seaside rooms, while families may prefer a Double Deluxe Pool and Garden Deluxe, with views of Monte Solaro.

In the middle of town, just up the street from tony Le Sirenuse but at one-fifth the price for a sea-view room, the California is the Amalfi Coast’s best budget find.

One mile outside town seems to be just far enough from Positano’s crowds to attract a constellation of stars (George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Franco Zeffirelli) to the coast’s most famous cliff-top hideaway, which spills down the sides of a rocky promontory, its terraced rooms discreetly hidden am

Nearly every room at this mannered villa tucked into the winding backstreets of Ravello has views over the verdant Dragone Valley descending from the mountains down to the sea.

The Prince of Belmonte's hotel (and primary residence) attracts a posh clientele, many of whom address the Prince of Belmonte as “Angelo”.

Three adjoining 19th-century buildings on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, owned and operated by the same family since 1834 and still containing many original furnishings.

Named after a white cat giving birth to three kittens in a lemon grove just south of Capri’s central piazzetta in the mid 19th-century, this small boutique hotel was built on those grounds by the Esposito family.
