Amazing view on ocean - unbeatable! We booked a superior room with a jacuzzi on the private balcony. The hotel is family-run and the owner still works with a ledger, and not a computer system, so he gave our room away (claimed it was Expedia's or some other agencies fault) and we had a tiny room with partial ocean view....

The staff (Petra and Pasquale)were very welcoming. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel. Me and my wife will...

The Smeraldo was a great hotel. Run by a family made it so comfortable. The room was spacious and very clean. We had a balcony overlooking over to Positano. Location was perfect for getting yourself around to Positano, Amalfi, or Sorrento. Of course we were right next door to Chiesa Di San Gennaro, which is a gorgeous little church, it...

If you want to travel all around the amalfi coast, this hotel is very well located in the center between sorrento and ravello. Much closer to amalfi and positano. Has a nice view, well attended by the owners, and very important, has parking!.

The hotel was perfect. We had an amazing view from our balcony of Positano. They had our table set and ready for a delicious breakfast and amazing cappuccino each morning. The bust stops right outside the hotel which makes it very easy to travel to the other Amalfi Coast towns, The restaurant was divine. At first we were worried because...

Although this hotel is not really that pricey, it was a lot better than I expected it to be. I got the sea view room and breakfast was included (8 AM - 10 PM). The breakfast included hardboiled eggs, pastries, cereal, juice, etc. The rooms were very clean and had a very unique scent about it (a good scent) -...

The hotel, as such, did not really disappoint. The restaurant terrace and some rooms do give a very nice view of the bay and of Positano. The rooms are spacious, the bedding is comfortable. Unreliable wifi and bad soundproofing (thin walls and tiled floors) are drawbacks, though. We tried the restaurant on the first night of our stay : the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Smeraldo is a pearl in the hearth of Amalfi Drive. The hotel opened in 1957 in Praiano, at the time, an old fishing village. From its panoramic terraces, in addition to gazing upon the splendour of Li Galli islands, guests can also admire the enchanting view of Positano as well as captivating Capri with its Faraglioni.All rooms overlook the sea and are served by a lift and have private bathroom, heating and air-conditioning system, telephone, TV and terrace.The Hotel also has a parking lot with an automatic gate, where you can safely park your car. An excellent restaurant, specializing in local dishes, overlooks the bay of Positano and Capri.The garden, lobby, bar lounge, and staircase to the beach are all enjoyable and convenient attributes of the Hotel.But it is the warmth and kindness of the owners that make this the perfect vacation spot both during the relaxing winter season as well as the lively summer season. ... more   less
