10/10 Exceptional

We had an amazing time here. It’s such a gorgeous hotel, the rooms are lovely and comfortable and the view is unbelievable, words won’t do it justice. All the staff were so warm, approachable and really helpful. Yes the steps down to Amalfi are fairly intense (worth it for the view on the way down, a serious workout for your calves on the way up) but manageable if you’re prepared/don’t have mobility issues. I’d stay here again in an instant. All staff were also really easy to communicate with before our stay, arranging airport transfers for us which was so helpful.

8/10 Very Good

I loved this place, because from there you can appreciate the entire Amalfi’s panorama and the serene, quite, natural sounds in the mornings, and evenings; excellent way to start and finish each day. And the local pizzeria San Giovanni couple minutes walking distance from hotel excellent ambiance, service and best pizza I ever tasted! Also the personal, friendly treat of Lina (the manager of the hotel) very attentive and helpful!

The staff were so kind and helpful! The facility itself is obviously quite new and in excellent condition. Room was outstanding - Incredible view and very large deck. They had a thermal pool/hot tub that needed to have fresh water.

8/10 Very Good

It's beautiful here and the staff is very nice, but we found the location inconvenient. Public transportation doesn't really seem to reach Pontone, where Palazzo San Giovanni is located, so it's either expensive taxi or LOTS of walking (if you don't have or rent a car). We love being active, but found it exhausting to trek up and down to Amalfi and Ravello in one day from this hotel. The streets aren't always pedestrian-friendly either. I wish I had done more research into the location of this hotel when considering options. The room was decent, but for the price, we thought they could have provided hand soap and a more comfortable bed with multiple pillows. The shower area was also super slippery in a way that seemed potentially hazardous. Our favorite part of the room was the balcony overlooking a view of the cliffs.

This stay was a highlight on our 1 week trip around Naples, Ischia, and the Amalfi. Lina, our host, welcomed us the morning before our arrival with a call explaining how to get to the remote area of Pontone. Throughout the day, she provided us with helpful information on which bus to take and at what time. We were traveling during off-season so busses were harder to come by. When we arrived, Lina greeted us at the front and showed us into our beautiful room that was decorated with expresso candies! The room was gorgeous and the view was unbeatable. The next day Lina prepared a delicious breakfast for us and even made us coffee and an omelet! As we were leaving, the rain picked up and she offered to give me her umbrella for walking down to the bus station. My friend and I already want to bring our families to this place. The palazzo is unbeatable and the host is so kind. Don't pass this place up!! Thank you Lina for such an incredible experience!

We were there in October, and Amalfi, Capri, etc., were still drowning in other tourists. If you want peace and quiet and relief from day times spent in the crowds, San Giovanni is a lovely place to be. It's as beautiful as the photos on the web site with wonderful views down the terraced ravine to Amalfi and the sea. It's new, rooms are spacious, airy and well thought out for whatever needs you might have. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and go out of their way to help. Breakfast buffet is extensive and there's parking for an extra fee in a place that otherwise would be very difficult to park.
