- A characteristic, family-run hotel in a prime position in Conca dei Marini
- Magnificent views of the Mediterranean from the restaurant terrace
The characteristic Hotel La Conca Azzurra sits on one of the famous Amalfi Drive bends in an enviable position directly above the sea near the Emerald Grotto.
Taking advantage of its superb panoramic position on a coastal cliffside, each of the 17 spacious guest rooms has a balcony or panoramic veranda with wonderful views over the sea and as far out as Capri. Fresh interiors are comprised of cool whitewashed walls and tiled floors, and rooms are decorated with local Vietri ceramics.
The hotel's restaurant is well known for its excellent regional seafood dishes that can be perfectly complemented by one of the bottles from the extensive wine collection of the owner’s cantina. Even the olive oil for this restaurant is produced from the old olive groves that surround the house.
Before dinner, take advantage of the magnificent views of the Mediterranean from the leafy restaurant terrace, where you can sit back with a refreshing drink and watch the sun set over the few remaining fishing boats. On the tranquil rocky beach, reached via a number of steps and a path, lies a private bathing platform for hotel guests.
Signor Salvatore Criscuolo, whose family originally converted their home into this boutique hotel, has created a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The hotel’s warm hospitality dates back to the 19th century, when the Grand Tour travellers passing by in carriages would stop off for refreshments. There is a painting displayed in the hotel depicting this very scene and, even today, those passing by may stop for a drink.
Due to its location, Citalia recommends car hire for visiting and exploring the nearby areas of Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and Praiano.
The hotel has 17 rooms (official rating 4 star) Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum stay 3 nights.

About the location
Conca dei Marini is a tiny fishing village commune with just a handful of amenities, yet there is a quaint rural charm here that can’t be found in many other places along the Amalfi Coast. Relatively untouched by tourism, Conca dei Marini is perhaps best known for being the home of the hidden Grotto dello Smeraldo – a remarkable karst cave that rivals the Blue Grotto found in nearby Capri. Journey inside and the cave will divulge its secret feature – an inner chamber where visitors can witness a dazzling reflection of bright emerald light as the sunlight is dramatically refracted. Elsewhere in this cliffside village you can find a smattering of authentic restaurants, often with mesmerising sea views, as well as a sleepy marina that perfectly encapsulates the charm of the Italian coastline. Better still, Conca dei Marini is just a short drive from Amalfi and Furore, making it easy to explore these stunning towns during your getaway.
The hotel is 1 hour 30 minutes from Naples airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

This place is like the jewel in the crown of the Amalfi Coast! Me and my wife were driving up the coast from Sant Agata through Positano and headed to Amalfi and we couldn???t pick the right place to stop for lunch, until we saw La Conca Azzurra.
The restaurant and the entire facility are stunningly beautiful with a great team and a great owner, who showed pride of ownership and took great care of us from the moment we arrived (he even helped us find free parking in front of the restaurant) to the moment we left. The food was incredible and the price are very competitive for the quality and attention to detail they offer.
We were seated at the most beautiful balcony - overlooking the coast and the sea underneath. We had a great time and keep ordering food, because we did not want to leave this amazing place. Looking forward to go there again before leaving the coast this week! It adds great beauty in the experience!
I would like to say thanks to Chiara and her team who took great care of us, while we stayed there.
