We stayed at the Caravella all four. The appartment is very close to the beach - but the beach has no sand and only stones ! We where asked to move apppartment after one night....very strange and a new experience. The kitchen equipment was so poor that it was not åossible to cook a real meal. There was not one... More

This is a late review, as we stayed here in May last year (2013). We were traveling as a family of 4 with 2 young children and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. Having young children it was a perfect location bring right on the beach!! We had a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment and my girls loved... More

We came late to the airport and had confirmed pick up from the hotel, but no one met us at the airport, and they tried to blame it on me and my boyfriend. They promised to pay for the taxi we had to take, but they did not. No one was there to meet us when we arrived at 11pm.... More

We stayed here one night in January 2014 after hiking the Path of the Gods. It was a great place for us. We went off season so much was closed but it was very fun to stay right on the beach and explore Positano from this good location. We'd definitely return.

Wow, what a beautiful location and great rooms---the location couldn't be better! This is not a hotel in the classic sense, but I liked it even better because it had character. You walk to the rear of the building to find the person in charge of showing you your room. She doesn't speak much English, but she makes up for... More

The hotel was located in a beautiful place right on the water. Rosa the manager was very helpful and a very nice woman. The beach cost 15 euros to access but she had her own little space that she let us use. Although it's a little difficult to get to, I would recommend this hotel.

Very pricey for what you get. Nice room but aircon needed at night due to very early deliveries to restaurant nearby. Great balcony for people watching. Use the ferry to arrive and depart, it's a very long trek up a steep hill to the bus stop

The Bed had blood stains, no internet is provided, and its not secure. No Safety Deposit, They don't clean daily, its Horrible... Do NOT book it. Go... More

I loved this place Our daughter got married in Positano and this was perfect meeting place for our guests. It is right on the beach with a beautiful view,especially in the morning. The tile floor was impressive, We got more then we expected knowing that this is an appartment. I highly rcommend it if your looking for a residence
