We felt very welcomed by the family owners
Loved the location, the restaurant in the hotel has a great view of the Med Sea, good food and nice service. They took good care of our rental car when parking it for us. The wifi was very good. We felt very welcomed by the family owners of the hotel. We hope to be back soon.

Great hotel!
Great alternative to Positano, but the town is quiet. It's a hike down to the beach/water, but worth it. The hotel itself was lovely -- best shower in all of Italy! The beds/AC not as comfortable as others, but still great. Breakfast was good, and the view was unbelievable. Definitely spring for the balcony/patio.

O.K. for the money but lacking in a few areas!
Visited here with family and wanted a room 'with a view' which we did get! Location is great with a fabulous beach bar, One Fire, and another half way down, called Cafe Mirante. Both were highlights of the trip! WiFi was non existent in rooms and only available in upstairs restaurant. TV had only three terrible channels. The owner kicked us out of the restaurant at midnight because he was closing up, which sucked as we still wanted to check our emails. There was no other comfortable place to sit while doing this and no comfortable place to hang out either if you just wanted to relax at hotel. The public area was a bit run down and nobody went there which is a pity because it's overlooking a glorious view. There was no wifi there either. This hotel was O.K for the money and ability to have three in a room which is hard to find at at decent price in this area. Praiano is a great location. Owners seemed a bit tired and stressed as well. Restaurant was only O.K. There's a better choice across the street at La Strada, which is wonderful! Hotel was clean and rooms were fine. There was parking available which was good, although down the street. I'd give this hotel a 6 out of 10.

Relaxing and Beautiful Praiano
We enjoyed our time at Hotel Smeraldo. We went on our honeymoon and it was a nice relaxing place to enjoy the scenery and some nice local spots. The hotel itself is quiet and the surrounding area is charming. The woman at the front desk (who seemed to do everything, and do it well, was helpful with arranging taxis for us to local places as well as trips to nearby ravello for the evening). The view from the restaurant is gorgeous and should not be missed (food was good, too)!
