It is certainly the jewel missing on the Amalfi coast, thanks to its arches in typical Mediterranean style, the botanical garden, the exotic garden and all modern facilities, such as bars. All rooms and suites are furnished with taste and charm with majolica tiles from Vietri sul mare and hand decorated furniture, masterpiece of Tuscan craftsmen.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at Botanico for five nights in June, and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is stunning, with breathtaking views, friendly and welcoming staff and beautiful, comfortable rooms.

All of the staff work super hard and I really must mention the porters, who gladly lugged our heavy suitcases up c.100 steps in 30+ degree heat!

It’s not strictly on the beachfront, as it’s high up and accessed via a funicular plus approx 100 steps so I’d not recommend it for accessibility however, in my opinion the steps are worth it for the spectacular views across the Amalfi coast.

It’s true that the hotel is in need of a little maintenance such as repairing the wooden decking around the pool area and the door to our bathroom in our room didn’t close. However, I’ve already booked to return later in the year so safe to say the views, service, food and overall experience more than makes up for this!

The grounds are beautiful, with the famous cactus garden and so much jasmine, which smells amazing.

The breakfast which was included with the room was amazing, an extensive buffet of fresh fruits, cereal, cheese, ham, bread, smoked salmon, and no less than 15 or so cooked dishes including eggs. roasted vegetables, local dishes etc.
Overall, the food at Botanico is amazing. The freshly made pizzas are great value and the lobster pasta was delicious!

For me, Hotel Botanico is a true slice of paradise and I’m already counting down to my next visit 💚🤍❤️

Arrived to Antonio at the bottom of the funicular who helped with the bags (thankfully) smiling and chatting all the way. Check-in went (relatively - more later) smoothly with Dominio giving us a tour of the hotel and gardens with welcome drink in hand. Now to the rooms, we had booked the premium suite, however on checking in we learned that there had been a storm the previous night (the debris around the place attested to this being the case with workmen busy trying to fix everything). Unfortunately our room had suffered some water damage and was not available. The team at HBSL could not have been more apologetic and spent the next 5 days doing everything in their power to make up for it, the rooms we were given were more than adequate with private balconies on 2 sides and perfect sea views. We were afforded free drinks, meals and even a massage to compensate for our inconvenience.
The food and local wine is excellent, would highly recommend the pizza terrace for lunch.
The views are truly spectacular and a walk around the cactus gardens is worth the effort.
Would definitely return.

What a great find on the Amalfi Coast. Lovely family owned boutique hotel with fabulous views and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the small environment with many amenities. It was peaceful and just what we were looking for. Views all day long and into the evening are stunning. As a bonus, they also own their own beach club, so you have access to the beach with chairs and umbrellas, changing rooms and nice beach cafe/bar to relax and enjoy. Rooms are good size, furnishings a bit more antique style but well done with bed comfortable. Bathrooms can be a bit tight but small price to pay for the great terraces and space your room has over the sea.

Maiori where this is located is the perfect town to stay in on the coast. They have the largest beach and MUCH less busy than the more well known cities. There is a great inexpensive ferry service you can take to all the various other cities and get a great view of the coast and have side trips without driving.

Very disappointing. Dropped off by taxi at small unmanned reception office at the back of an empty block of flats amongst the rubbish bins. Quite intimidating. No indication of what to do next other than a notice in Italian only. After about 10 mins a staff member 'found' us and escorted to the main entrance via circular staircase of 25 steps , a funicular ride and a further 75 steps. A good start!!
Our 'upgraded' room was on the uppermost floor of the hotel. Amazing view from the balcony. The rather hard bed was on a mezzanine floor above the main part of the room. A rather steep and narrow stair case provided access to the bathroom downstairs!! We chose to keep the bathroom light on all night to provide a little safety when using toilet at night .
Very fancy bathroom had nowhere to put sponge bags or toothbrushes etc. and a big jacuzzi bath. NO shower.
Air conditioning settings could not be changed in room only by reception.
TV had no foreign language channels. We would have expected in a 5 star hotel to have been able to watch BBC world news, CNN and have available at least another 6 languages.
Breakfast was poor. Luke warm scrabbled eggs. Limited cheese/ham/bread and pastries. No toast. Some fruit and about 10 plates of cold cooked vegetables that looked like they had been there all night.
We have had a better room/breakfast combinations in a Premier Inn.
We had 2 very poor and expensive evening meals. Service was poor.
One evening we returned to the hotel to find that the funicular was out of action. We were pointed to a gate and left to find our own way up 200 steps in the dark and wet. Steps that were somewhat uneven and in some places with poor guard rails. The very least we should have been provided with an escort.
We didn't use the pool but it was small and looked in poor condition.
Interior decor and furnishings were old and very tired. Small lounge area was only inside space to sit and read/chat.
Reception and junior waiting on staff tried very hard to please.

I travel often and have never had an experience like this with a hotel. I booked a stay here through Expedia two months prior to our visit. Just a week and a half before our trip, Expedia emailed me that this hotel could no longer accommodate us and was cancelling our reservation. “No rooms left.” Meanwhile, I could see on all hotel booking sites that they had plenty of the same room I booked for sale for much more money than I originally booked ours.
When I called Expedia, they said there was nothing they could do so I spent lots of long-distance dollars trying to get a hold of the hotel. When I finally did get a hold of someone, they told me that they were overbooked. I let them know that I had proof and pictures that they were trying to take my room away and sell it for more money online (600 more) and this was not good practice. After spending $80 on the phone to Italy, we came to an agreement that we would only stay for three of the original 6 nights and they would upgrade us to a better room with a free bottle of wine.
Once at the hotel, the room was a downgrade and there’s no bottle of wine. Even though we had already paid Expedia for the room, the hotel upon check out claimed they never received the money. I’ve dealt with Expedia many times and had never had a hotel claim this. We had to pay the hotel again even though we had already paid through Expedia. The manager assured us that he would have Expedia refund the original amount but he never did. Now still a month later, I am trying to get a refund through Expedia and of course the hotel will not get back to them to confirm any of this and so they are not issuing a refund.
I stayed at this hotel one time prior to this incident and had an OK stay. I thought it would be a nice place to return to. I am sad I am now writing my first bad review of a property to warn others not to fall into whatever trap they are setting there. My advice is Hotel Art Marmorata- this is where we rebooked our other nights and my family loved it.

Unfortunately our visit to the Amalfi coast was awful because of the torrential rain and thunderstorms. The staff at the hotel were very nice, the man who met us at the lift was really nice! And the two gentlemen on reception were very helpful. However the hotel is way past it's best, might have been a 5 star in the 90s but is falling apart now. The room was average at best and the breakfast was shocking, not sure what the food was, it looked like meatballs and there was a dish of aubergines in tomato sauce. We phoned reception and asked the lady if they had an umbrella which she informed us they did have one, we went down to collect it and within 5 mins they didn't have it anymore. Luckily BA cancelled our flights so we booked onto the next available flights home and cut our stay short by three days.

This was my 2nd time visiting this hotel because we had such a great experience the first time. We were as equally impressed this stay. The entire hotel staff is so helpful, professional, and friendly. Domenico, the GM, greeted us and took us on tour of the gardens and to the top of the lemon orchard. He also arranged for a water taxi, private shuttle and helped with other special accommodations-we had a group of 15 people and 8 rooms. And how about Antonio carrying 30 bags and helping with other requests. The entire staff was incredible. And the view can’t be beat-one of the best views on the Amalfi Coast and in the world! Highly recommend it and we will be back!

I visited this amazing hotel last week and was amazed by the way we were treated from the moment we checked in, until the moment we checked out.
Whilst checking in, we were informed that we had been chosen to receive a complimentary DOUBLE upgrade, from a normal room, to a 2 story suite on the top floor. That alone was enough to tell me that we were going to really enjoy the stay.
The staff we always so friendly and accommodating, I enjoyed the fact that it was a close knit group of staff, seeing them at breakfast, around the hotel during the day, and again in the evening.
All in all, I couldn't recommend this hotel any more and have already told all my friends and family about it.
Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making it such a memorable stay!

If you looking for relaxing day by the pool this is the place where to be .
First of all this beautiful hotel is only one of few hotels that allowed you to join their pool without staying at the hotel .
We enjoyed our day to the maximum with breathtaking views.
Will also recommend to have a lunch in their restaurant. It was delicious. Food is fresh and traditional.Compliments to the chef! You will really get what you pay for. The service especially our waiters Ilenia and Maurizio were very attentive & friendly.
Highly recommend to spend day by the pool or even having lunch or dinner over there .
Thank you to all the team for taking care of us and making our day memorable!

My husband and I arrived late for a week's stay and were greeted by a staff member who carried our bags up. We felt very welcome even though it was late. We were shown to our room and the temperature was perfect with a/c. The bed was very comfortable and we also had a beautiful terrace overlooking the coast. Francesco, the Hotel Manager gave us a very warm welcome before breakfast and told us all we needed to know about the hotel and facilities. Yeni and Angela served us for breakfast most mornings and were extremely friendly and nothing was a problem. The pool area is breathtaking with views of the sea and terraces. Our room was cleaned twice a day. What more can I say! This was holiday we will never forget.

The hotel is located high on a hill. A lift takes you about 80% of the way but there is a number of steps to walk the rest of the way to the hotel building. Same to get to and from pool area. There are lifts inside the hotel itself.
