We recently returned from a second trip to Italy; this was the first time
on the Amalfi Coast and also our first (but certainly not our last) visit to the Onda
Verde. What a wonderful hotel and what wonderful and friendly hosts. We were
in a room with a balcony and a panoramic view of the sea.
We slept with the balcony doors open (although there was air conditioning which we did not need) and awakened every morning to the sound of the sea and the rising of the sun. The elevator that takes you from the roadside parking lot to the lobby (at floor -6 (no kidding)) is a welcome addition
since the Amalfi Coast has NO level surfaces and all hotels are built into the rocky hillsides (ask others with hotels without an elevator, as we did, and the response is "by week's end we were very tired climbing all of those stairs every day"). My thanks to Milano and his sister Sophia (and Gennaro our waiter and general all around helper) for a wonderful week and we look forward to seeing them again on our next trip to Italy. We had a ball and the hotel is wonderful! And a final note to Milano; we hope that your new daughter (Maria) and her mom are doing well; we know with parents like you she will have a wonderful life. Our best!

My family and I stayed at Hotel Onda Verde in June, 2002, and had a
wonderful time exploring the whole Amalfi Coast from there! Great location, great staff,
beautiful part of Italy. I would recommend the hotel to anyone without hesitation. In
fact, I would be happy to talk to anyone that wants more detail - call me at +1 415 613
8873 and I'll answer any questions I can.
As beautiful as these photos are on this website, the reality is better. And the incredible views shown are not from the most expensive room in the hotel - the view is the same from every room.

Thank you to you and Gennaro and all the staff at the Onda Verde for
making our holiday in Praiano so fantastic. Jamie and I had a brilliant two weeks
with you - thank you especially for sending us to Ravello and Capri they were so stunning
and our walk to the Fjord was brilliant fun too.Your hotel is fabulous and we
thoroughly enjoyed our dinners - every night was a superb culinary experience, especially
your fish dishes. We will definitely be revisiting you in the future.

This was our 4th visit to Italy, but our first visit to the Amalfi
Coast. Your hotel is a treasure! Everything was wonderful -- the view was
spectacular, you are wonderful hosts, and the restaurant's specialties were
delicious. We were only there for 3 nights and we want to come back to stay
longer! We tell all of our friends about your hotel. Thank you for making this
part of our vacation so lovely.

I used the Hotel Onda Verde as my travel base from April 26 to May 3,
2002. With its central location between Amalfi and Positano, it is perhaps one of the most
delightful hotels along the entire Amalfi coast. It provides magnificent views, it is
amazingly quiet, it is very clean, the staff is very friendly and most helpful, and the
food is excellent (both breakfasts and dinners). My room was perfect, both in its location
and the excellent, queen-size bed it provided.
My sincere thanks go to Mr. and Mrs. Milano, to Miro and Hillevi Milano, to Sofia (Miro's sister), to Gennaro, and to the chef in the kitchen. They were all extremely helpful and kind to me and made my stay most memorable. I highly recommend this family-operated establishment to anybody who wants to visit the Amalfi coast.

We spent three wonderful days at the Onda Verde, which were the very best
of our extended vacation throughout Italy. The owners could not have been more
gracious or helpful. The view was incredible and the rooms were comfortable and
spotless. The location, between Positano and Amalfi, is perfect, since it is easy to
visit the other towns, but wonderful to return to Praiano which offers peaceful and quiet
surrondings that the other towns on the Amalfi coast do not. We were able to sleep with
our balcony doors open to the wonderful sounds of the sea at night. Truly a magical

I hope this reaches you. We wanted to thank you all for a wonderful
stay at your hotel last month. Although the weather was cooler than usual for that
time of year, our stay couldn't have been better. We loved the views, the food, the
staff and the entire region. We have
told everybody we know how lovely Italy and, more specifically, Amalfi, is. Thank you again for your hospitality and for making our visit somemorable. Yours,

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful
days on the Amalfi Coast at this very friendly and accomodating establishment.
Everything during our stay was perfect. The manager was very accomodating booking an
excursion to Capri, giving us driving directions to Ravello and coordinating wonderful
dinners for us each evening. Our stay at the Hotel Onda Verde was the most pleasant
and relaxing part of a three week trip to Italy. We recommend this establishment to
all our friends and will be returning again this year. Be certain to have dinner at
the hotel, the food is marvelous and rivals the best cusine anywhere in Italy.

Thank you to all the staff at Onda
Verde for such a wonderful holiday. Your website is one of the most beautiful and
informative sites that I have visited, but it is nothing compared to the real thing! We
travelled right along the Amalfi coast, but never once saw anywhere with such a lovely
location. Onda Verde is ideally placed whether you want to explore the region, (which you
made very easy for us), or just to chill out and relax. The way that the rooms are set in
pairs up the cliff, free from traffic noise, ensures total peace and privacy. And those
breathtaking views.... I can't wait to come back.
