My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Caruso around a wedding we attended in Ravello at nearby Villa Cimbrone. ||Our room was beautiful! We were in a Junior Suite and were very impressed by the terrace, beautifully-framed views, and the massive bathroom with marble tub and shower. Our welcome amenities were wonderfully personalized. The design was modern and comfortable, but still had a strong sense of place with the bucolic terrace, arched ceilings and artwork. I would highly recommend this hotel for a honeymoon or anniversary stay — it was easily a room we could have spent all day in.||We knew when we booked the hotel that the pool is generally considered one of the most beautiful hotel pools in the world, and it did not disappoint! The views of the sea and the town of Ravello were gorgeous, and the pool was massive and rarely had anyone using it (though plenty of folks lounging around it). The complimentary smoothies were a nice touch, and all of our pool cocktails were highly enjoyable. The surrounding gardens provide plenty of space for relaxing and taking in the 360 degree views of town. There was also a nearby outdoor gym that had excellent equipment and was a joy to use (because of...you guess it...the stunning views).||We didn’t have much time to delve into the food and beverage experience on property unfortunately. We had a couple of tasty room service meals, and frequented the open air bar which had superb cocktails and bar snacks. The casual food we had at the bar was pretty forgettable (esp. compared to the excellent options at Le Sirenuse), but our lunch at the pool restaurant was amazing. Fresh prawns and a massive lobster, which was the centerpiece of a seafood pasta that was plated tableside, made for a truly memorable dining experience especially when combined with the unforgettable setting.||Service was excellent across the board! We had a great check-in and tour with Rosie who also managed to make our send off particularly special. We also had efficient and friendly bellman and transportation service throughout the stay. We had some language-barrier issues at the boutique, but otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised by how much fluent English was spoken on property. The folks at the pool were really hustling as it was windy during our stay so umbrellas were constantly being set up and taken down — they did an excellent job. The housekeeping team also outdid themselves with some wonderful surprises to celebrate our anniversary during turndown.||There were a lot of great activity options, including complimentary transportation down to the hotel’s private beach and boat tours. We unfortunately didn’t have much time to experience any of these offerings, though my wife did a private pizza-making class on property with a friend, and they had a terrific experience (and brought two delicious pizzas to the bar afterwards). She also spent time in the spa and spoke highly of the staff and facilities. We went for a stroll in the immaculate gardens one afternoon and can't imagine how much work it must be to maintain them (though definitely worth it from a guest experience perspective)!||All told, I think that Belmond Hotel Caruso is easily the best hotel in this part of the Amalfi Coast, and one of the absolute 2-3 best in the region. Your decision to stay there has much more to do with the type of stay you want (e.g. mountaintop vs. on the water location; in the middle of a sceney town like Positano, or a more relaxed environment like Ravello) than the experience the hotel provides which will almost certainly exceed your expectations. For us, the proximity to our wedding at Villa Cimbrone and stunning rooms and pool made it an easy decision to stay, and we look forward to returning soon!

I absolutely LOVE Hotel Caruso. My husband and I first stayed there 12 years ago and had been dreaming of it ever since. When we were planning our trip to Italy for last summer we knew that we wanted to go back. Ravello itself is absolutely breathtaking! The town is incredibly walkable and there are so many cute shops and greats restaurants to check out. The pool at Caruso is a huge infinity edge overlooking the Amalfi Coast and is absolutely insane! Basically the view from any spot in this hotel is beautiful, including the open air gym. In terms of dining, we ate at the Caruso Grill upon arrival, the Ristorante Belvedere for dinner on our first night and breakfast at the hotel each morning. All of the food was delicious and breakfast was so good that it's the one to which I compare all other hotel breakfasts. The service at the hotel is also above and beyond and I strongly recommend you make this a destination for your next Italian vacation.
