"The staff makes this hotel!"
The staff of the hotel were simply amazing. They addressed every question we had and made sure our stay was top notch. Even in advance of our arrival, Annamaria assisted us with arranging transport from Rome and when my flight was delayed, the staff stayed until my 1AM arrival without complaint. The hotel is charming and has beautiful views. Loved it!

"stunning location.. friendly and helpful staff.."
When you read this one listed the things that let it down. I probably sound harsh but that is just because it's 5 star and that comes with a higher expectation. It was still a fabulous stay and the staff were very accommodating. so here goes. Amazing location. Service was awesome on the whole but on the odd occasion was not so great (restaurant on first night although they were brilliant on the next occasion). The maid was brilliant all week... So cheery and helpful. The hotel very kindly arranged or transfers and these worked very smoothly. I had one luxury transfer and one taxi... It was another twenty euros for the luxury transfer but it was worth it. Restaurant was good. Breakfast was fantastic but bizarrely never had a big enough milk jug. But staff were great. We booked a restaurant for us and took us there in the hotel's covered trike and that was brilliant. The bathroom was a little poky and was inadequately lit. The room was also dark -very frustrating when looking for things. The beach club was closed on a couple of occasions without warning in the hotel. It also wasn't in keeping with the rest of the hotel. I don't think it belongs to the hotel and is a little shabby in comparison to some of the other beach clubs. On the whole it was brilliant though.

An amazing view of an amazing location ...the hotel was all we'd hoped it would be. The hand shower over the bath could have been better situated (it was at waist height and in the way) but otherwise, everything was great, including the food, service and pool area.

This is a beautiful hotel with wonderful staff and facilities. It was our honeymoon and we were made to feel so special by the ladies at reception. Melania, Anna and Flavia were incredibly helpful and we are certain we will be going back. Giuseppe and Lello provided us with transfers and information and advice and they were both very charming. Iwona and Luigi were outstanding at the bar and with food service. The breakfast offers everything you could wish for.

"Not a 5 star hotel"
A unglamorous entrance to the hotel. The staff are nice but their communication skills were very disappointing. On a number of occasions when we asked for something they got it wrong or we just waited for a long time. The hotel is really more like a 4 star in our opinion as the facilities our not that brilliant.

"6 Days of Heaven in Maiori"
My mother and I spent a wonderful 6 days at Hotel Botanico earlier this month. It was our first time in Italy, and it went far beyond any high expectations we had. Maiori, the town, is a lovely balance of tourism and locality, with great locally made cheese and freshly caught seafood readily on the menu. The hotel itself was located in its own quiet area on the cliffside, but conveniently less than 5 minutes walk to both the main street and the beach. The views offered by Hotel Botanico were beyond stunning, from almost every point including from the room. The hotel itself was quirkily designed and had everything we needed - and the terraced botanical garden by the side of the hotel was fantastic and we enjoyed strolling through it every day after breakfast. The staff were so friendly and willing to do their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We have fallen completely in love with both the Amalfi Coast and the hotel, and will definitely visit again!

Most amazing hotel. I have travelled to many different places but this hotel is by far the best. It's authentic boutique feel makes you enjoy your stay so much more. The staff made our stay so enjoyable we didn't want to leave. They were superb from the moment we got there until we had to leave. If you're looking for a great relaxing holiday with amazing food (hotel chef is the best) then look no further. I have recommended this to everyone i have spoken to already!

"The Hotel is Amazing, the most Beautiful Place!!"
The Hotel, the Staff, the location, the food was just Amazing. We could not have picked a better place for our Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived to the sad moment we had to leave we we looked after through and through. The Hotel's location gives it some of the BEST views in Amalfi. Our room was awesome and cleaned at least once if not twice a day. The staff make this Hotel complete, they were friendly, more than helpful and made us feel so Welcome to Beautiful Maiori. All of the Staff could not do enough for us, probably the most helpful Hotel Stall ever! We strongly urge anyone viewing this Hotel to book it, as veteran reviewers our selves, trust us it's perfect.

"Fantastic location and service... but those steps!"
The hotel is cut into the side of a high cliff among terraces of lemon trees and is approached by it's own funicular. It has several terraced cactus gardens and an "infinity" pool overlooking the bay. Standing on the terrace or on your balcony the views are unsurpassed. We had a very pleasant stay in the Botanico for my wife's special birthday and the staff couldn't do enough for us. It has an intimate, comfortable feel and breakfast on the terrace was an experience to be remembered. Our room had two French windows leading on to each side of the large wrap around balcony. Hot water is always instantly available and towels and bedding were frequently changed. The staff are obliging and helpful and every whim is attended to, sometimes before you're aware of it yourself. However, I would not recommend it for anyone with a disability or limited mobility, as above the funicular there are a further 74 steps before you reach reception. Thank goodness for the willing help with suitcases. I guess that's the price to pay for the views. The food is excellent, although the main restaurant is expensive. Food is also available on the terrace or in the hotels own pizza restaurant.

"3 night stay"
Very happy with the hotel, staff and location. Exceptional views and quality of room and service. Nice swimming pool. Only negative is trouble finding it. Hotel Botanico is halfway up a cliff with no road up. You need to go in through a road to another hotel (Pietra Di Luna) round the back of it and then take llift/funicular up to a further set of steps to get to reception. Havingsaid that any trouble finding it pales into insignifigance when compared to all the positives. I highly recommend this hotel

"super mais!...il faut monter à pied en partie"
Excellente vue panoramique de la cote amalfitaine, on perçoit presque 3 grands villages du haut de l'hôtel,. C'est le seul 5 étoiles de Maiori. Bizarrement il s'agit presque d'une maison d'hôtes (de luxe) que d'un vrai hôtel! mais cela a son charme. Le grand point négatif est le fait que cet hôtel organise des mariages tout au long de la semaine (très très bruyants, puisque les toilettes pour les invités ne sont pas loin des chambres et feu d'artifices à chaque noce) donc très bruyant! Le personnel est très sympa, attention fausse impression qu'ils parlent Français, cela aboutit parfois à de désagréables malentendus au restaurant! Clientèle essentiellement Américaine. Ah! le petit déjeuner est extra et gargantuesque. Excellente impression malgré tout.

01/06/16 nicnz2711
Everything here was fantastic. The staff made this an unforgettable stay that I would highly recommend to anyone. It is a climb , lift part way but what on Amalfi with views isn't and trust me when you sit up there with your drink in hand (try a mojhito!) it will be well worth it. The staff made me feel like part of the family and the breakfast is amazing - it stretched for miles and everything you could thing of was there and was fresh. Restaurant meals didn't have a lot of variety but I was there the last week of the season so this may have been the reason - food was still good though. I did side drips to Amalfi, Positano, Capri, Pompeii & Mt Vesuvius. My advice check your bus and Ferry timetables what you are told is not always right. A big Grazie to all at the Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro.

"Perfect family run boutique hotel"
10/23/15 janeduess Dusseldorf, Germany
We had a wonderful weeks family holiday in this boutique family owned hotel. Fantastic Setting high up on the hill, wonderful food, breakfast included on the terrace overlooking Ravello and the bay. In fact breakfast was also a highlight with a super choice of international and local food all freshl made at the grill on the terrace. We loved the fact that the hotel was not too big but offered us everything we needed. It is owned by one of the oldest families in Maiori who have other hotels in the town. If you are looking for something airbrushed which is absolutely perfect and indistinguishable from hotels in other towns this is not it. If you are looking for a low-key (not hyper) personalised hotel with high standards and very friendly helpful service but also some quirks this is it. We loved the pool and also the amazing terraced cactus gardens. We chose Maori because if you have children the beach here is great and we were not disappointed. Maiori itself is not picturesque like Amalfi but does have character if you are open to it and being at the end of the valley gets a breeze in the evenings. It also has the sun until late in the day. Easy with the car to make lots of trips or as an alternative with the bus and takes less time to get to pompeii/versuv etc. than many other locations. Our room was not huge but had great furnishings and we were happy with it.Also had our own private garden with outdoor shower. Could have had a bit more storage but not a big point

"Beautiful view, breakfast on the balcony was wonderful."
10/14/15 wardnuts Draper, Utah
Stayed 4 nights at the end of August. The staff was very good, very helpful and professional. The breakfast on the balcony was fantastic each morning, looked forward to starting the day with that beautiful view. Most things about this Hotel are FANTASTIC. I would stay again. AC was working well, something that is not always good on the Amalfi coast. Stairs are just part of living in this part of the world, they had elevators and a funicolare, but stairs are unavoidable. Recommendations for restaurants were excellent, you just cant be in a hurry. Things that were not great...our room had a loft with the bedroom upstairs, not great for middle-aged man with prostate issues, navigating staircase for my ritual "pee break" in the middle of the night was not awesome. I believe other rooms were not this way. Hot tub was not at temperature. Overall great place.

"Beautiful hotel, best location in Maiori"
10/04/15 smgriffiths1 Herefordshire, United Kingdom
We stayed at this lovely hotel for four nights at the end of September into October and were not disappointed. We had a fantastic time, the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious, giving us a chance to try the local cuisine. Gorgeous cold meats and pies, stuffed peppers and aubergines, all very fresh. The cake selection was also marvellous, and varied daily. You could also order a traditional egg and bacon if you wished. The lift experience to get to the hotel was fabulous and added to the ambience of the stay, you felt as if you were travelling in style. Great outdoor pool area for sunbathing and swimming, extremely clean fresh water into the pool, with drinks and food being served at the poolside. It is a very individual hotel, extremely well run and we loved it. Maiori was a proper working Italian seaside town and lots of locals were going about their daily business which added to our experience of the Amalfi coast. We visited a wonderful bakery in the main street and there were some lovely restaurants and bars to visit, which were very reasonably priced. The town felt very safe with children playing on the large sea front, riding bikes and generally enjoying themselves with their friends. A great place to base yourself for exploring the Amalfi coast, would especially recommend a visit to Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, all very pretty in different ways.

"Wow location"
09/30/15 Matthew W
Fabulous location with outstanding views. Stayed for a few nights late September. Deluxe sea view room with terrace overall was quite comfortable although very bijou especially the bathroom! Distinct lack of places to put things and no drawers or shelves in wardrobe. Decor is very good, and a pleasant place to stay but would give the restaurant a miss as attention to detail and expertise in the kitchen is lacking. Would not rate as good value for money, you are paying for the stupendous views. Staff very nice and helpful.

"Fantastic week at HBSL!"
09/23/15 strathtravellers Strathroy, Ontario
We stayed at HBSL in early September and had a fantastic holiday! The view from the hotel is absolutely breathtaking and the location in the quaint town of Maiori is perfect. It's very easy to take the SITA bus to the neighbouring towns and it was great to return to the peaceful town of Maiori in the evening for dinner. The staff at the hotel are very courteous, work very hard and go out of their way to please the guests. Our room was on the second floor with a large bedroom area, large shower and bathroom and a lovely grass area outside with a table, two loungers and an outside shower. The hotel did control the A/C but we asked to have it on and requested a temperature and it was done. The hotel was very quiet and was the perfect spot for a romantic, relaxing vacation. The hotel pool is crystal clear and has a beautiful view of the town below. We ate lunch at the restaurant twice and we enjoyed delicious food and an amazing view of the coast! We counted 120 steps from the lift to our room but we like to walk and exercise so this was perfect for us to work off the wonderful food and wine! We loved this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a dream vacation on the Amalfi Coast of Italy.

My new husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon and wow we both wish it could have been longer. The wow factor started with the lift up, welcome drink, fabulous reception, amazing breath taking views, friendly staff and lovely room. A nice touch was the towels were changed when the bed was turned down - everything was just right. The gardens are amazing set into the terrace - anyone travelling the Amalfi Coast and wanting that bit extra must stay here. The restaurant was also great we had lunch when we arrived, dinner on the second night and breakfast both mornings absolutely no complaints.

"2nd Stop of Our Honeymoon !"
09/14/15 Matia_Xo Mississauga, Canada
I am going to start off by saying this won't be a lengthy review. We are still travelling but I really wanted to post something now while it's fresh in my mind! We are travelling Italy and Greece for our Honeymoon. We are 28 and 29 years old. This hotel was the 2nd stop of our trip. I am definitely the more picky one out of the two of us. I like new, trendy, bright and fresh hotels and I like to be in the heart of all the action! I won't go on about my first impression because I was tired and we had a long ride from Rome to the hotel... It was hard to find which was a bit frustrating. Finally we found the hotel entrance and it is located behind Pietra Di Luna Hotel. 1. The Views: unbeatable.... Hands down the best in Maiori which is part of Amalfi. You wake up to a beautiful view, you have breakfast to a beautiful view. You will NOT be disappointed. 2. The Room: Our room was big, and clean. But as mentioned earlier I like new, fresh, bright and trendy hotels. The washroom was fine, but very small and the shower almost too small for my husband who is average size. The floors get really slippery when wet and I learned the hard way so please be carful. The products, robe, slippers etc are all great too. I did not see a blow dryer but maybe if you ask the front desk they will provide one. The lighting in the washroom and the bathroom are far to dim for me. You only get good lighting in the room during the day with the curtains open. 3. Food: we only ate breakfast here and it was fine. I would say the typical hotel food at the Italian hotels. They did have good soy milk which was great and all the servers were very nice! 4. Convenience: if you don't like stairs or walking or can't use stairs then this place would not be suited for you. If you want the view, you have to put in the work! The small bottom lobby at the base of the hotel has a small elevator to go up one floor or you can take the stairs. Once upstairs you walk out some doors to a "lift" or I call it... Sideways elevator. This is the only way to get up to the hotel. BUT it doesn't take you all the way up. Once at the top of the lift you still have quite a few stairs to climb. It is well worth it but definitely something people should be aware of. To me this doesn't effect my rating or view of the hotel whatsoever because Amalfi is all lots of stairs... Stairs.. Stairs and lots of walking. If you want that spectacular view then you have to go up higher in the mountains/ hills! 4. Service and Staff: always smiling, friendly and helpful. Everyone works so hard and is always there for you. You guys are great and we will miss you! 5. Hotels Grounds: everything is constantly being cleaned or groomed outside. Pool is lovely with a killer view and also very clean. Many areas to just get away and watch the sunset and unwind. The hotel definitely isn't over crowded or too busy. Hotel Botanico is great! Great people, views, etc. you can't go wrong here and it was definitely a nice honeymoon spot and a great place to relax after Rome!
