“Beautiful room, fantastic view, great food, most amiable service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

We spent 3 wonderful nights here, ate all 3 dinners at the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed every dinner! Thank you Pino, for the most friendly service. A genuine host who wants to make sure that his guests enjoy their Amalfi coast vacation, Pino provided valuable tips to discover the region, and always offered to drive us to the bus stop, even though it's just a 10 minute uphill walk that is no issue for active hikers.

Our spacious double room had a wonderful seaview and a balcony. Breakfast (fresh sliced fruits, joghurt, pastries, beyond usual breakfast items one gets in Italy) is served in the restaurant that has an amazing view of the sea.

All dishes we ordered for the dinners were very yummy - clams in white wine sauce with spaghetti, grilled prawns, grilled fish, home-made gnocchi, octopus, beef steak, mixed fried fish.... rounded up with a very deliciously fragrant home-made limoncello on the house.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and loved it. Pino and his team (family) made our stay really special. The food was excellent, rooms comfy and view spectacular! A car helps as a way off the main Amalfi Road but you do need strong nerves to drive.

Pino has got to be one of the best hosts you are ever likely to find. He is charming and laid back but really cares about his guests and does everything he can to ensure you have a good stay. Our friends were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary on our second day and when Pino discovered this he laid on a few very nice surprises.

Various members of Pino’s extended family work in or around the hotel, including the delightful Antonia, who looks after the restaurant at breakfast and dinner.

The hotel is right up in the hills near the hamlet of Furore. It’s very quiet at night and driving to it along the narrow twisting roads is challenging, whichever direction you approach from. There is a regular SITA bus from Amalfi (an experience in itself) but be aware that the last bus is at about 9pm from mid-September. We got caught out by the change in timetable but Pino very kindly came to the rescue and picked us up, something he seems always happy to do if you’re stuck or need to be somewhere at a particular time.

Our favourite places were Amalfi itself and Ravello in the hills behind it. The walk back down hundreds of steps from Ravello to Amalfi is fairly easy and very scenic – took us less than an hour starting from the steps near the entrance to Villa Cimbrone. Food and drink in the main square of Amalfi was quite expensive. We found a good place called Snack Bar La Piazzetta in the small square just behind the main one, where there is also a small supermarket. The bruschetta at La Piazzetta was very good and prices were more reasonable with no cover charge. A small, glass fronted bar (can’t remember the name) just before the tourist information centre was a good place for a beer with the locals. If you prefer natural features to tourist ones the Arco Naturale on Capri is quite dramatic, as is Herculaneum, which is much smaller and more “doable” in a few hours than the much larger Pompeii.

All in all Fico D’India is a wonderful oasis of calm at the end of a busy day on the Amalfi coast and has made us realize how much more pleasant it is to stay in a small, well-run family place than a large impersonal chain hotel.

Grazie mille Pino, Antonia and all the staff at Fico d'India.

We just spent 4 wonderful days in Furore, on the Amalfi Coast at Fico d'India. I could not be more pleased! Pino, the owner is wonderfully helpful, charming, and cannot do enough for his guests. He picked us up from the ferry stop when we arrived in Amalfi, and drove us to his most beautiful hotel in Furore, high in the mountains, overlooking the sea. The bedrooms were emaculate and with a breathtaking sea view, as were the dining area and the patio. The food in his dining room/restaurant is excellent, plentiful, well-priced and delicious! It is well-known in the area and often locals arrive for dinner.
Pino organized our sightseeing days to ensure we made the most of our time and he made sure to tell us about the sights we should not miss. Furthermore, everyday he drove us ( 30 minutes or so) to either catch the bus or the ferry to where we had to go on our day trips, and picked us up to bring us back to the hotel, regardless of the time we arrived. He printed out maps, schedules for us, and even mailed somethings left behind in the room to our following destination.
Pino and his hotel are a rare find: he truly cares for his guests and goes out of his way to be helpful and to make sure their stay is the best.
Our time with Pino was one of the best on our recent 2 week Italy trip and I wouldn't hestitate to return; in fact I can't wait! I highly recommend Fico d'India to anyone travelling the Amalfi Coast.
Ciao Pino y mille grazie! Claire

Room Tip: All rooms are equally fine with sea views.

My wife and I are Americans who lived in London for 20 months, during which we traveled extensively throughout Europe, staying in 55 different cities in 26 countries. We stayed at the Prickly Pear for just 2 nights on a trip through Italy, and of all the places we visited this was our favorite hotel.

The views over the ocean and cliffs of the Amalfi coast were unparalleled. One day for breakfast we were served a lemon-filled pastry that to this day we still hope to taste again. And best of all, the owners were fabulous. Furore is a little bit difficult to get to, and due to a late bus from Sorrento to Amalfi we missed the last bus to the hotel. We ended up paying 50 euro for a cab, and upon arrival were told that if we'd have only called, they would have come and picked us up for free! The next morning, when we realized that we'd need to wait nearly an hour for the first bus to Amalfi, one of the guys offered to take us into town immediately, also for no charge.

To be honest there are probably more beautiful places to visit around Europe and even Italy, but if you're coming to the Amalfi coast this is the place to stay without a doubt. We will definitely be back!!
