" You and your agency are to be thanked profusely for the choice of Casa Angelina on the Amalfi Coast. The facility is absolutely beautiful. The staff couldn't be more helpful or friendlier. Our room and amazing terrace were exactly as advertised. Truthfully, if we were going to return I might take the very expensive suite which is huge and has a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate stall shower. The breakfasts are terrific. The dinners are very good and there are other restaurants in close proximity that are local, good - good pizza etc. My wife had a sore leg, and on a Sunday morning, one of the staff went to the local pharmacy and got her a hot water bottle. All in all it was a great trip to a great place and we thank you very much."
