My boyfriend and I were here for three days of our stay. Our room was called La Pesca (the peach) and we had a villa with a terrace overview of the entire hazelnut grove. It was breathtaking and quiet. We would relax each morning with the beautiful view of the mountains surrounding us. The breakfast each morning was small but we did go to the restaurant for dinner which was really good. They had a really good hazelnut semifreddo for dessert. The rooms were really clean and the staff was very friendly. They had a pool but it was still a bit too cold. We didn't want to leave. The Wifi wasn't working but it was nice to power down a bit while we were there to relax and enjoy the scenery. There are signs around the nearby towns to direct you to the hotel which is really good and its located about a half hour from Salerno and about an hour and forty minutes from Sorrento. We would love to come back someday.

If you have a car, you will want to book this resort. We found ourselves there as part of a "discount package" vacation and were leery as we wound through the back country roads and past buildings that looked partially abandoned. When we found the gate to Villa Rizzo, we collectively exhaled as we drove up the tree-lined, gravel path to the quaint reception area. The Villa was once a working hazelnut farm and trees are still everywhere. The grounds are meticulously kept as are the rooms. The rooms are well appointed and the bed that initially seemed too low was actually very comfortable. One day we had trouble getting hot water and we were told that we are on solar heat, but they quickly corrected the problem. The pool and spa were very inviting but due to the cold climate at the time of our visit, we did not use the pool and had no time to arrange spa treatments. The breakfast that was included was a generous buffet and the kitchen and staff were happy to provide cooked eggs in addition. We had dinner in the dining room one night and were very happy with the quality of the food and presentation. I would like to take away one star for the fact that wifi was not working but in fact, our stay was so delightful and the staff so pleasant that they truly deserve a 5 star rating. This hidden gem would be an affordable place to headquarter your visit to the Amalfi coast area. Relatively close to Salerno, you can drive down the coast, take the ferry to Capri or drive down the autostrada to Naples easily. We look forward to returning if we find ourselves in this part of the world again.

The Villa Rizzo should be rated a five star in all aspects. I think the distance from Salerno may affect the rating as the villa is at least 15 miles from Salerno , out in the countryside and driving through some small villages and winding roads. It didn't bother us as we enjoyed the real feel of life in the Italian countryside. The peace and quiet and the views from your balcony are amazing. The service is five star as is the menu. We did not schedule any spa treatments but other guests did and they remarked how wonderful they were. If you have a car while in Italy, make it a point to stay here. The drive is worth it. One other note--the wifi here was not working the days we stayed and it was wonderful to really enjoy the escape from electronics.

Room tip: A room in the white Villa

Wonderful resort! The rooms were very comfortable, clean, and spacious. I had no part in the planning of the wedding, but I can definitely say at the wedding planner was wonderful. The setting was absolutely gorgeous!! This resort is also close to a town you can walk to (about 20 min walk). We went for beers and sandwiches. The store was a little difficult to find because when we went, no one could be found in the town at all. But when we did find it it was delicious!

3 day stay during the first week in July. Was a bit hesitant to book due to location but the photos of the pool sealed the deal. Pool was great, food at the restaurant was very good and affordable while the breakfast buffet had limited options until we discovered that they serve eggs to order, that is not advertised. Spa treatment was wonderful and relaxing. The rooms were clean and housekeeping was very good. The common areas and landscaping needed some attention and would recommend that hotel develop some activities to encourage clients to stay at the hotel like cooking classes, wine and/or olive oil tasting, yoga or tours of the vineyard. Overall, the staff made our stay enjoyable away from the hectic Amalfi coast during high season and Salerno was enjoyable.

Room tip: Wifi was terrible in the rooms and common areas
