"Quiet family run hotel"
The hotel was perfect. It is outside the bustle of the larger cities and the views are amazing. The food at the restaurant is some of the best I had in Italy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful serene views of the Amalfi Coast"
This hotel is very beautiful and perfect if you are looking for somewhere quiet to relax and enjoy some breathtaking scenery. The grounds for the hotel are overflowing with lemon trees, and flowers, and luscious scents of spring in bloom. Think of a natural flower garden cascading down the rocks down to the turquoise sea, and that is what you will find […] here. It is a quaint hotel, where they take care of their guests well-and seem to know there whereabouts. I felt like they looked after us. One night we came home late, and a path was lit to our room. That could have been very strategically placed motion sensors, but regardless-I certainly appreciated it. One thing to keep in mind that staying on the coast like this, will cost a small price every day if you happen to leave your room. There are multiple stairs, but the beautiful garden along the path should be enough to let you ignore the burning in your leg muscles. The menu is gourmet, and they seem to put a lot of care into the food that they serve. They keep your room immaculate. I could have sworn that every time we came back to our room, due to the smell, it must have been cleaned within 5 minutes. You never know if you will be safe in another country, but I definitely felt safe. I even noticed that the car parked right next to us had their ipad on their seat with the window down. That eased the fears I had about theft in Italy. The owner and his father are wonderful and cheerful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Costa Diva was paradise. Breath taking views, incredible staff, delicious food, and so much more. Filipo and Nicolla were so accommodating, you couldn't have asked for better service. Close to the bus stop, so easy to make daily trips up and down the coast. A perfect location to visit the entire Amalfi Coast. Hope to go back again very soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Praiano, Italy"
hotel is clean, have to walk down about 500 steps and then back up another 50 to room. "Window" was one window in the door. Room teeny tiny but clean. Right on "cliffs" overlooking Meditaranean but had to open door to look at view or go outside. Shower barely big enough for 1 person (if you weigh over 200 lbs you'd never fit into shower). Restaurant […] is cute but "different". Basically it's outside -it's under a cliff overhang with clear plastic walls to keep out weather (which was fine when we were there in early October). Free breakfast was fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean and comfortable and well located for accessing Marina di Praia beach. Staff were fairly quiet and we didn't interact with them much. Great views from the terrace and very peaceful. Amenities were basic but we did not require anything more. Location is further from the centre of town (15 minute walk) but there are plenty of restaurants […] nearby and the Marina di Praia side of town is lovely and welcoming and quiet with good restaurants.

I was tired and drained when I arrived, after three days at this little paradise I was energised and happy. I cannot thank you enough and hope to come back soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
Firstly, faultless service, excellent food, and rooms were kept very clean throughout our stay. Their website suggests they can arrange tours for you when really they seemed limited to arranging a private taxi for you which could get very expensive very quickly - you can instead arrange group tours in nearby Amalfi though so this is a very minor criticism. […] The location within Praiano is great - right next to the bus stop and on the coast which means there are excellent balcony views. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel in the heart of the Amalfi coastline."
The staff at the hotel were friendly and couldn't do enough for my husband and I. The hotel was centrally situated on the Amalfi coast and has breathtaking views over lomon trees and the ocean. The colours, the aromas, the sights.... Magnificent,Genuine Expedia guest review
Superb hotel in a location looking straight out to sea. Staff and everyone were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My son and I have just come back after spending five nights at Costa Diva. It is a beautiful and very special place. The views from the gardens and the restaurant are stunning. We dined in the hotel three times and the food was delicious. We found the staff in the hotel very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and very clean and quiet, even […] when there was a wedding party in the hotel.. Praiano is quite a small, quiet place which suited us fine. It is easy to walk to the beach at Marina di Praio and the SITA bus stop is just outside the hotel if you want to explore other places along the coast. We loved our time at Costa Diva and hope to return soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Five star staff and restaurant"
All of the hotels in the Praiano/Amalfi coast area enjoy wonderful views over the coast however Locanda Costa Diva has something pretty special. The staff (Fillipo, Antonio, the restaurant staff, the housekeeping staff). We stayed in a Superior Room which had a jacuzzi bath with a view over the Amalfi coast - very pleasant after the long drive from […] Rome. The staff looked after us and the food was delicious.

"No better view on the Amalfi Coast"
The hotel, although somewhat aged in the decoration of rooms, offers a very welcoming family-like atmosphere and an absolute stunning view of the water. The restaurant also offers very good mediterranean cuisine at a very reasonable rate. If one wants stunning views, a natural setting, and can do without the standard of a top-western chain hotel, this […] is the place to book. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic setting, and the service and cleanliness of the hotel cannot be faulted. Got used to the buses and the many steps that come with the area...does wonders for your legs however! Would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone interested in using this a a base to explore the Amalfi coastGenuine Expedia guest review
"Vacanza di 5 giorni"
Ho scelto questo hotel per una breve vacanza a maggio su suggerimento di un amico. Hotel non di lusso ma dove gli ospiti stanno veramente bene. Camere dotate di tutto quello che serve, estremamente pulite e silenziose. Vista mozzafiato da ogni punto della struttura. Giardini lussureggianti tenuti perfettamente. Relax massimo. Buono il ristorante. Personale […] eccezionale: professionale, gentile ed efficiente. Consigliatissimo! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Für Kurzurlaub akzeptabel"
Das Hotel liegt unterhalb der vielbefahrenen Küstenstraße. Die Lage ist aussichtsreich und ruhig. Allerdings sind die vielen Treppenstufen, die nach unten zu bewältigen sind, recht mühsam. Die Zimmer sind einfach aber ausreichend ausgestattet. Das Personal ist freundlich und bemüht.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Circondato da una limonaia sospesa sul mare"
Camere semplici ma funzionali e pulite. Gestione familiare con personale davvero molto cordiale. Le camere hanno terrazzi panoramici e sono circondate da uno spettacolare parco con limonaia... un piccolo paradiso sospeso sul mare.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ein Paradies auf Erden"
Zum zweiten Mal hatten wir in zwei Jahren diese Unterkunft gewählt. Wir haben dort alles, was wir für einen aktiven Urlaub mit Genußaspekt brauchen. Super Ausgangslage für Wanderungen, Ausflüge und Kultur. Bereits am Morgen genießt man einen herrlichen Ausblick auf das Meer von der Zimmerterasse aus. Ein umfangreiches Frühstück, was man in traumhafter […] Atmosphäre unter Zitronenbäumen einnehmen kann, stärkt einen für die Erlebnisse des Tages. Das Hotel hat ein eigenes Restaurant mit hervorragender regionaler Küche (Fisch, hausgemachte Pasta usw.) und super zuvorkommendem Service. Hier wird die Leidenschaft eines echten Familienbetriebes deutlich. Wir waren bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal da. Vielen Dank der ganzen Familie Milo. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in guter Lage"
Top Lage am Meer, nette Mitarbeiter, ein Frühstück das man getrost vergessen kann ohne Auswahl und Variation, ein Zimmer so klein dass sich weder im Bad 2 Personen aufhalten können noch im Zimmer ein Koffer aufgeklappt werden kann. Allgemeiner Komfort ist absolut nicht vorhanden, die Aussicht ist phantastisch, Parken höchst schwierig und von der Strasse […] zum Zimmer waren es 104 Stufen! Viel Spass mit dem Koffer! Darüber hinaus ist es im Restaurant teuer und die Karte spärlich. Wir würden nicht mehr buchen, auch wenn der Preis für diese Küste ok ist. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Cordialità, servizio e cortesia fanno di Locanda Costa Diva un posto indimenticabile. Per non parlare poi della cucina: davvero squisita. La vista dalla nostra camera era da lasciare senza fiato.

"A superb hotel on the Amalfi Coast"
We had a very nice room with a balcony and our own sun beds. The hotel restaurant was really wonderful; a very nice breakfast and superb dinners with fresh fish every day.

"Selten schönes Hotel unter Zitronenbäumen!"
Dieses Hotel ist ein kleiner Schatz! Klein nur deshalb, weil es nur wenige Zimmer hat, aber sehr viel wunderschönen Garten mit herrlichen Blumen und Zitronenbäumen. Unser Zimmer hatte einen Balkon direkt über dem Meer, ein sehr geräumiges Bad und ausreichend Platz für Koffer und Kleider. Das Team besteht aus einer großen Familie, die sehr herzlich und […] freundlich ist. Das Frühstück war reichhaltig und gut.

"Bien, mais mieux est possible."
L'endroit est très charmant et nous avons été bien accueillis à notre arrivée, même si le sourire est un peu commercial.... Nous avons toutefois trouvé un peu salées certaines notes de restauration dont seul le montant total nous était communiqué, sans facture, en insistant pour être payé en espèce quand nous tendions notre carte bancaire... Le petit […] déjeuner était assez moyen (bons croissants), mais en fin de saison, l'hôtel est assez peu fréquenté... ceci explique peut-être cela. Dommage cependant de devoir demander une orange le matin alors qu'elles sont facilement disponibles. Il ne faudrait finalement pas grand chose pour que l'expérience soit tout à fait satisfaisante, mais le diable n'est-il pas dans les détails ? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Vista maravilhosa, mas longe da cidade de Positano"
Gostei do local, pois a vista eh paradisiaca. O local onde se encontra esta Pousada não eh na cidade de Positano, mas sim de Praiano (ha 16km de Positano e ha 9Km de Amalfi. Em Praiano nao ha centrinho, apenas uma igreja (Sao Giovanni), onde tudo acontece desde missa ate venda beneficiente. A praia fica a 50 metros do hotel, eh perto, mas o acesso eh […] atraves de escadaria e rampa, pois nao ha acesso direto do hotel. Pessoas com restrição de escadas nao deve nem pensar em ficar em tal lugar, onde TUDO depende de escadas. Fora isso, valeu a pena cada minuto, pois a paisagem eh impar, ou seja, deslumbrante. Otimo para mergulho (mar calmo e visibilidade alta). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Urlaub im Paradies"
Die Wahl der Locanda Costa Diva als Urlaubsdomizil war ein Volltreffer in jeder Hinsicht: wunderbare Lage, herrliche Aussicht , liebevolles Arrangement der Zimmer, Gärten und Restaurants. Umfangreiches Frühstück unter Zitronenbäumen mit Blick auf das tiefblaue Meer: Cappuccino, Saft, täglich frischer Obstsalat, Joghurt, Müsli, Brot, Salami, Schinken, […] Käse, Eier, Speck, Tomaten, Cornettos, Marmeladen, Honig und vielen kleinen typisch italienischen Süßigkeiten. Das absolute Highlight aber ist das Abendessen unter einer Pergola mit Meerblick im hauseigenen Restaurant. Die abwechslungsreiche Speisekarte lässt keine Wünsche offen (täglich frischer Fisch, hausgemachte Pasta, Dolci, aus hauseigenen Zitronen hergestellter Limoncello u.v.m.). Getoppt wird das Angebot durch die absolut hervorragenden Tages-Empfehlungen von Nicola. Sein Service ist umwerfend, man merkt die Leidenschaft, mit der er die regionale Küche erklärt und spürt, dass ihm das Wohl jedes einzelnen Gastes am Herzen liegt. Seine guten Englisch-Kenntnisse erleichtern die Kommunikation. Das Haus ist ein Familienbetrieb. Man merkt das große Engagement und die Herzlichkeit jedes Einzelnen und kann sich rundum wohl fühlen. Hauseigenen Parkplatz, der fast rund um die Uhr betreut ist, ist vorhanden. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber, haben alle Balkon oder Terrasse mit Meerblick. Handtuchwechsel täglich, Wechsel Bettwäsche zwei bis drei mal pro Woche. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic Experience! HIGHLY recommended!"
It was a bit of a gamble when we selected this hotel, also because there were no recomendations of the hotel. that is why i write the first one. Its an amazing place. it lies directly on the seecoast which gives amazing views! it has several terraces some covered with lemon trees growing under which you can walk through. very nice! we had the junior […] suite which is the room furthest from the road and other rooms. a lot of stairs but closer to the sea you can't come. only minus was that the bed was very hard. otherwise Very friendly staff and very good service. Based on my experience i would put this hotel in the 4 star category. The restaurant is also very good. the beach is only 10min. walk from the hotel. would book this place again!

"Second visit twice as wonderful as first!"
09/29/14 scarlattismuse South Carolina
I first visited Locanda Costa Diva two years ago and wrote a glowing review at that time. This month's week-long visit was even better and included a fabulous cooking class with the chef of Costa Diva's restaurant (rated #1 by Trip Advisor). Every member of the staff, from the owners to the waiters and chambermaid, provided us with the highest level of cheerful professionalism. Please keep in mind that every hotel on the Amalfi Coast will have a significant number of stairs as the terrain is absolutely vertical. For this same reason, there is a gorgeous view from every balcony outside each room.
"This is everything your heart desires"
09/22/14 garyvera Rancho Santa Margarita, California
The moment we drove into the convenient parking lot(believe me on the tight amalfi coast this is a godsend) we were greeted by Antonio who immediately set us at ease. Our room was darling the views as everyone on this site attests are nothing short of paradise. The owner and his family were kind and gracious. Can not say enough good things about the food. Other than the fact that you feel obligated to leave and see the rest of the coastline there is no good reason to leave. The food was fabulous and reasonably priced. It felt like you were having dinner with your Italian relatives who want nothing more than for you to enjoy and relish in the flavors the rich coast had to offer. this place checks all the boxes. very rarely does my imagination meet reality..this time it did..simply put magical....Our Love to you Catarina and family!!!

My wife and I spent eleven days in Costa Diva for our anniversary. It was a dream come true. The views were incredible, the welcoming staff was warm, and the food was exceptional. We'd return in a heartbeat.
"Lovely Hotel with Beautiful Views"
09/15/14 travelfamily01 North Vernon, Indiana
We spent 3 nights here and would highly recommend it. Our balcony had incredible views of the ocean and the coastline. Our son had the single just up the stairs from us - and he had his own small balcony as well. I believe we were there a week before the ferries started running. So things were very quiet although the weather was perfect. We walked about 10 minutes down to Praiano where there was a small beach and you could watch the local fishermen going out. Dinner was very good and we enjoyed eating among the lemon trees looking out over the ocean. Breakfast was OK - but there really isn't a place to grab a cappucino anywhere else. Wifi didn't really carry to the room. But you can use it in the lobby area.
09/14/14 Riikka77 Helsinki, Finland
Wow! This was an amazing place! Enjoyed every moment of our stay! Spent 4 nights in this hotel, which is located in the slope so it means all the rooms have a view on the sea. All rooms are also individual and are located a bit separately from each other. Every room has it's own balcony and some even a small patio in addition. Our room was also very nice, and the bathroom was fully covered with colourful tiles. Cool! Hotel also serves dinner and has a big restaurant with a long patio again with a view on the sea. And a big garden in many levels, full of lemon trees. Location is a small village but you can easily take a bus or taxi if you don't have your own car. Hotel offers a free parking but if you rent a car, remember to take a small one! Roads are so narrow! Village has few restaurants and a beach. Staff (family-owned business) was very friendly and they made their very best that everybody enjoys their stay. I recommend this place and hope to come back! :)
"Best hotel ever!"
09/10/14 Philip T London, United Kingdom
The minute I walked into Locanda Costa I feel in love...dramatic but true. The location is mind blowing, the staff outstanding and friendly and the rooms clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We only ate in the restaurant for lunch once, but the food was fantastic. I often find that hotel food can be exceptionally hit and miss, this time round it was a massive hit! The most impressive aspect of our stay was when the time came to leave. The hotel is around an hour and a half from Naples which meant my partner and I had to get a taxi at 6:30am. We forgot to let the hotel know this and were not able to check out in the conventional way as reception does not open until 7am. We left the keys in a plant pot (safety first) and ran to grab our cab. Emailed on route to the airport to apologise and received a swift response to thank us for staying and to advise that normal payment for the room and our meal would be taken. I've been places where you would be charged extra and made to feel like a complete fool, Locanda's approach was refreshing and immediately alleviated our stress levels. We our planning our return in 2015, unfortunately 2015 won't come soon enough. Don't hesitate, book this hotel today, you won't be disappointed.
"A Gorgeous and Gracious Amalfi Coast Retreat"
09/09/14 doreende New York City, New York
We enjoyed being in Praiano, located between Positano and Amalfi on the coast, because it was far enough from the crowds but close enough to explore every location along the coast. But by far the best part of our Praiano experience was being at Costa Diva. The views are breathtaking-- from the rooms' lovely porches, from the terraced gardens, and from the restaurant where we dined under beautiful lemon trees every day. Our room, done in beautiful Italian tile as are the porches, was well-appointed and comfortable. The food was wonderful-- from the daily caught fish to the home-made pasta. The staff were unerringly gracious, friendly, helpful and welcoming people. We loved taking the cliff walk "Via Terramare" to the beach each morning, then exploring the coastal towns later in the day. We ate dinner at Costa Diva frequently -- because it was so good, and so lovely there. We'd love to go back!
"A Small Corner of Paradise"
08/31/14 Luciano S
Excellent location for traveling up and down the entire Costiera Amalfitana. For those of you who feel they are skilled enough to drive the SS163, I would definitely recommend renting a car. This wonderful little hotel, not only has a parking, fairly hard to find on the coast, but also a parking valet, Antonio, that is there non-stop between 10:00-23:00 (10am-11pm) every day. He is very approachable and full of solicitude, like everybody else in the place. The family owning and operating the hotel and restaurant mean to make everybody feel at home and do an excellent job at it. The views from every unit are spectacular. The accommodations are non-pretentious but very comfortable. I wish we had more time to really take advantage of the premises, but we have done our share of site-seeing all over the coast. The prices are very competitive and, at the same time, you get the best of what you're paying.
"Authentic Amalfi Coast hideaway"
08/21/14 BenUSA105 Beverly, Massachusetts
First off, when you're on the Amalfi Coast, everything is "wow!" Pleasant surprises are everywhere and Locanda Costa Diva is no exception. As soon as you walk down the steps, you realize you're at the real deal - family staff, stucco walls, ornate tiling, lemon trees, and manicured gardens. Welcome to the Amalfi Coast, minus the foreign crowds and touristy glitz. Costa Diva impresses you with the feel of authenticity. It's where the Italians from Rome and Milan choose to vacation; it's where the locals come for dinner. And to that end, this is still the best place we ate during our entire stay in Italy. The fish is day-caught fresh and the pasta homemade. So, if you want to avoid the overwhelming crowds of Almafi town and Positano, stay in Priaino's Locanda Costa Diva.
"lovely room with verandah"
08/13/14 Therese L Brisbane, Australia
Good property with great service and lovely views. Not sure it deserves its no 2 rating as found menu a bit boring after a few days. Probably 3days is a good no to stay as it is difficult getting places on bus during July and august.
