A nice little hotel in a beautiful spot overlooking the Amalfi Coast. {3 stars}

La Perla is a lovely little hotel in a gorgeous location right on the coast. The views were incredible!

It's a little tricky to find as it's just above the coast road on the outskirts of Praiano in the direction of Amalfi (it's directly opposite the easy-to-find Onda Verde Hotel). The hotel consisted of a ground floor with reception, a lounge, and the breakfast area. The rooms were on the two floors above this, and there was a roof terrace with great views of the coast. There is no elevator, but with only two floors it wasn't really a problem.

Our room (a deluxe room) was on the second floor. It was larger than average and had a comfortable bed and nice furniture (table & chairs, bedside tables) and a large wardrobe. The bath was also fairly large with a full tub with shower. Water pressure was OK and there was plenty of hot water. We also had a minibar, TV, and phone though we didn't use them. What really made this place, though, was the private balcony overlooking the Amalfi Coast. We spent our evenings sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine - what a way to live!

The public areas are very well appointed and the breakfast area has great views over the sea. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the typical continental breakfast with a few meats and cheeses. Coffee was good and they weren't stingy about refills like some hotels can be. There's a very limited menu (by advance notice only) for dinner, but there are at least two good restaurants within walking distance - right on the water below the coast road - where we had some excellent seafood.

One slight downside of this hotel is that it's not really within walking distance from the town of Praiano (at least not within OUR walking distance!). There is a SITA bus stop right in front of the hotel, though, so it was easy to get around by bus. There is also free parking, some on the steep driveway leading up to the hotel and more in a secured parking area right on the main road.

We paid 120 per night for a deluxe room in mid-September. For this room in this location, we thought it was a great bargain. Highly recommended!
