We arrived at the hotel much later than anticipated, well after midnight and were delighted to find that the staff had waited up to welcome us and show us our room.
Cold food had also been left there. This excellent level of service was consistent throughout our stay, from reception to the restaurant and is a strong positive for the hotel.
We were travelling on a half board arrangement and on the first night were worried that the specific menu might provide too limited a choice. However when we asked, we were told that we could choose from the a la carte menu if desired and pay extra. In actual fact the half board menu changed each night and was excellent for the rest of our stay and was complemented by a strong choice of wines.The lemon flavoured olive oil is fantastic and can be bought in the hotel shop.
Stunning Location- out of a movie set
This small hotel & restaurant are perched on a cliff. Our room had spectacular views, particular care had been made to the décor. The staff from management to service were very polite and friendly. Location on a cliff means the access to the levels of garden and a swimming -sunbathing area were quite steep. No beach area. We ate in the restaurant where the staff were delightful. Sal , Rafaelle and Marianna were especially kind. No English breakfast here but the set evening menu for £25 euros was prefecto.You could choose also from a more extensive menu. Local wine and vegetables. Full bar areas were not open yet so socialising was difficult would have liked the chance to talk to other guests. Other smaller villages had restaurants but advise a taxi journey.
Great hotel, fantastic location - a place to go

We stayed at La Conca Azzura for 3 days in the end of May. The hotel is built into a cliff approx 200 feet above sea level, so you need to go down from the road level (ground floor) to -1 for the reception and further down to the rooms. Our junior suite had a terrace approx 15x15 feet with an incredible sea view. All terraces are separated by ivy (natural and artificial) for privacy, so you can't see your neighbors. The room was large, sparkling clean and had a brand new spa-grade body shower. The bed was a little hard, to be fair.
While all staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, I'd like to specifically recognize Stefania and Carmen for excellent customer service that exceeded our expectations.
The restaurant is located on an open terrace right above the water - with same breathtaking views, needless to say. We had dinner there twice, it was good. While breakfast is somewhat limited, it offers enough for any taste.
We first arrived at midnight in the dark so to our amazement in the morning were met with the most incredible view from the balcony. The room had everything we needed and was cleaned everyday.
Breakfast was a good selection of fruits, cereals, yoghurts, meats, cheeses etc. We had dinner at the hotel a few nights, both set menu and a la carte which was always fresh and delicious. The set menu changes each evening depending on what has been caught during the day. Conca dei marini does have some restaurants so it's worth asking the hotel which ones do shuttle taxis and see if they can book you a table there as the buses don't run late and the normal taxis are very expensive.
The buses were fine although not always on time if you are wanting to get to amalfi for the ferry to Capri for example (although they may have more in the busier summer).
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel purely for the view itself!
