A belated letter to thank you for looking after my family and me so well
when we stayed with you in October – you made everything work very
smoothly. We found your hotel via the internet and were much assured by
the comments in your guestbook. To future readers I would like to
confirm that Hotel Onda Verde is every bit as good as the comments
indicate. I have never before stayed at a hotel where you arrive on the
roof and descend six storeys through the rock to Reception! The hotel is
very imaginatively constructed and fits well into the cliff face.
The tours you organised for us all were very enjoyable – Vesuvius and
Pompeii especially – and the children very much enjoyed the Sea Taxi to
Amalfi. The rooms were comfortable and the view from the balcony
delightful. The food too was excellent and memorable.
Thank you again. We'll be back one day!
Tim and Melanie Neill

surprize to find that coming to the end of our stay we did not want to
leave!! Sophia a beautiful lady and Gennaro in the mornings with his
smiling face were wonderful hosts, not to mention Angela and Casmiro and
his family !! We made friends from all over the world and could not find
fault with this little hotel and could rate amongst the best in the
region ! Food was yummy and my husband is still trying to lose the
weight he put on a month later !
We were amazed at how hard the family worked to keep this little place
on the move and everytime we walked into reception there was some1 to
greet us with a smiling face and eager to help if necessary, it didn't
matter if it was 7 in the morning or 11 at night! we cannot wait to
visit our friends again at Hotel Onda Verde.

Our family group of 17 has just returned from five glorious days at the
lovely Hotel Onda Verde. The cheerful and patient reception by Sophia
put us at ease from the beginning. We took 7 of their doubles and one
triple, can you imagine dealing with the arrival of so many all at once,
each person tired from a long drive and anxious to settle in. But with
great grace and humor, Sophia managed to do the job and we immediately
fell in love with this sweet family run hotel. I had been corresponding
with Casmiro for over a year, and it was so nice to finally meet him and
his sister Sophia.
The rooms were immaculate, and well appointed, with balconies or
terraces with drop dead views to the sea and the dramatic cliff
formations all around.
I assumed the responsibility for choosing a Hotel for this family trip
and was very anxious that it be a good choice. The minute we arrived at
the reception, my anxiety disappeared. The hotel Onda Verde was all I
had hoped for and so much more. GREAT DECISION!
The dining room is beautiful, overlooking the sea, fresh flowers on each
table, freshly prepared dinners of pasta, seafood, soups, etc,. The
talented chefs were visible behind the counter and we enjoyed their
flair. Each morning, while sitting overlooking this gorgeous scene of
sea, sky and mountain, sipping a second cup of cafe, we would watch the
delivery of the fresh produce and fish to the kitchen. Breakfast and
dinner could also be enjoyed from tables set up just outside the dining
room, with the most amazing views all around.
What to say of the capable waiter Gennaro? Handling the dining room with
grace, patience and subtle humor, he became a friend quickly, and we
will miss being around him.
Breakfast included rolls, cheese, ham, all the usual cereals and yogurt,
some wonderful pastries and even cakes. Also for a reasonable charge you
could, and my husband did, order off a menu of eggs, omletts etc.
The lift so amazingly worked into the cliffs was a big help as many in
our group are up in years, it takes you from the street level to any
level of the hotel and to the dining room as well. We were able to
easily access our cars, (5 of them!) from the street level parking area
for trips to beautiful Ravello and Amalfi. Sophia could magically get us
water taxi rides at a moments notice, with the landing stage a stroll
away on a gently inclined pavement.
One of the ancestors of our family was born in Positano, and Cosimiro
went way out of his way to set up a contact for us with the present day
members of this family. We are in debt to him for this favor. Behind a
rather quiet demeaner, Miro proved to be a helpful and concerned
As we had a flight out of Naples at 11 Am, the hotel served us an early
breakfast, skipping none of the graciousness we had come to appreciate
all week. Nice touch. Check out went quickly and efficiently. Internet
access for a small fee is available.
We absolutely loved this hotel. It suited the needs of group, provided a
relaxing atmosphere to just sit and gaze out over the beauty of the
vistas, fed our hungers for all things gracious and we were well treated
by ALL the staff. Would we return? In a heartbeat!

Commento_:__ = Today it all seems like a dream that we spent 7 nights in
September at Hotel Onda Verde! To re-live our time there I often come
back to your website, look at the photos and listen to the music. I also
took numerous photos during our stay and every shot is better than the
next. Our friends and family cannot believe the breathtaking views! We
thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the trips to Capri, Vesuvius and Pompeii.
Although it may not be for everyone, I would certainly recommend the 7
night package to anyone who wants to relax, have clean & convenient
accomodations, have a filling breakfast with fresh-baked pastries every
morning, an incredible & delicious dinner (followed by Casimiro's
delicious limoncello) in the evening, easy access to the bus, swimming,
exploring, unforgettable views, and a most memorable vacation! Our
compliments and thanks to the entire Milano family, Adriana, Gennaro and
staff--We look forward to returning someday and bringing friends with us.

We are writing to tell you how much we enjoyed our week in the Hotel
Onda Verde. The fantastic view, the delicious food, our beautiful room
and the wonderful service from Miro, Sofia and Gennaro made it a very
memorable time. We and our friends, the Holstes, made a firm commitment
to return someday. Meanwhile, we will recommend the hotel to our friends
who are planning trips to Italy.
Your web site is very good, and talking with the other guests, it was
the main way people found out about your hotel. Best of luck in the
future with your plans to make the hotel even better.

We have just read the comments from your International visitors and
agree with them wholeheartedly, that your Hotel is the perfect place to
enjoy the Almalfi Coast.
Sophia and yourself Miro are wonderful hosts and agree with everyone
else, that Gennaro, the wonderful waiter was one of the best waiters we
have encountered on our two month trip in Europe.
Everyone is raving about your meals, we agree, each day when we filled
in our menu for that night (we chose half board which is the way to go)
we would be wondering with anticipation of the dinner to come that
evening as your food is of exceptional high quality and very generous in
size, they were great.
We have just got back to Australia but just felt we should let you know
how pleased we were with our stay.
There was a mixup with our room for a couple of nights, but you made us
feel so comfortable and cared about our feelings and inconvenience was
kept to a minimum and we appreciated that.
Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

my daughter and I treasure that peaceful and relaxing time. The
accommodations, food, and service were wonderful, and we took advantage
of your tour arrangements to see Amalfi, Pompeii, and Vesuvius.
For those who are concerned about room-size, you'll be delighted with
the large rooms overlooking the bay. The furnishings are attractive, and
the housekeeping is spotless.
Finally, the food is marvelous. We had arranged for half-board, and
enjoyed a generous breakfast and delicious dinner.
I plan to come to Onda Verde again, in the near future, and have already
recommended it to my friends.
Thank you for a wonderful break in our travels!

It's been over a month since our delightful stay at the Onda Verde. In
our original emails you assured us of "your best care and attention" at
all times. It's refreshing to have promises come true. Your spectacular
property, your quality service, the memorable food; all these are
reasons enough to stay with the Milano family at the Onda Verde. The
biggest asset is the family atmosphere at the Onda Verde. We truly were
treated like family, our every request was granted. I can't believe that
Fodor's, Frommer's, or Karen Brown travel have not yet discovered the
Onda Verde. This is their loss. I have recommended your hotel to many
since my return. I still dream about the pasta with lobster sauce. The
full moon over the Amalfi Coast on the 24th of April was even more
romantic than we imagined. Thanks again, our best wishes to the entire
Onda verde staff. We hope to see you in the future.
