The Amalfi coast thrills children. They will squeal at the hairpin bends of the corniche road, the scary heights of the cliffs and the tempting blue seas below. They’ll feel like they are in a James Bond film. They will, however, probably be a little bored by the gorgeous architecture and ravishing churches of many of the towns or by the romantic sunsets seen from bougainvillea-draped terraces. What they will want are beaches, boat rides, swimming pools, ice creams and trips to eerie-looking caves and caverns. All of these things can be found, if you choose your accommodation carefully and seek out the best family hotels on the Amalfi coast..
There are hotels, for example, that are within easy walking distance of Positano’s or Maiori’s beaches or the ice cream shops of Amalfi. Base yourself close to Praiano and Conca dei Marini and it’s handy for a boat trip to Grotto Smeralda. And all the family will want to try the fabulous pastry shops of Maiori.
It’s never easy keeping everyone happy on holiday but if you use our guide to the best hotels for families on the Amalfi coast you are halfway there. Nothing here for you?

A handsome Positano townhouse with enchanting bedrooms and one apartment. Freshly decorated in whites and blues, pretty ceramic wall lights, painted bedheads and private balconies. Excellent breakfasts on the terrace. A cool sanctuary to start the day in before heading to the beach.
A gem perched above the town with breathtaking views. The apartments are a great choice for families or groups. The bedrooms have warm terracotta floors, antique furniture and attractive bathrooms. The glassed-in terrace for breakfast is magical. The beach is a 210 step climb down.
Fabulous 17th century townhouse in Positano with spectacular views. Bougainvillea strewn terraces, an infinity swimming pool, and dreamy rooms and suites with private terraces overlooking the sea. Very romantic, very centrally placed.
Beautiful former convent set in the rock face just above the town of Amalfi. Fabulous views of the town and sea from the terraces and the swimming pool. Chic rooms and suites with vaulted ceilings and neutral hues. Spa, restaurant and bar. Stylish minimalism at its best.
A luxurious retreat in a stunning location. Beautiful rooms in whites and creams with splashes of colour and private balconies. Fabulous restaurants, private beach (reached by a glass lift through the cliff face) and luscious gardens with citrus groves. A tranquil and romantic spot.
