Cannot beat the location, right on the beach. Breathtaking views, not sure if you can find a place closer to the water. Hotel was clean, staff was very nice. Positano is a beautiful town, and if you want to stay somewhere closest to the beach/water, this is your place.

We were greeted by Rosa, the owner, who is a lovely italian boss lady with no english. Hard to communicate with her so brush up on your italian. Wifi is VERY expensive, i suggest to eat at the restaurant next door, use the wifi there, and continue using it up in your room (password changes every day)- best italian food... More

It seems like this Hotel is playing games in providing deceiving information about the available rooms. We had the same experience as described in the previous reviews. We paid for the room on booking.com, with very clear description and pictures of the room provided. What we got was a completely different story. On the booking website the "double room with...

Things got off to a rough start as there was a huge mix up about our room. I booked the apartment and was taken up way too many stairs to a tiny cubbyhole. Tried as I could to explain that was incorrect, I actually left as there was no way I was going to not get what I paid for.... More

We paid WAY too much to stay here, but it was the very definition of last minute. After a debacle with another hotel, we booked La Caravella online at 5:30 pm and checked in by 7:00 pm. (it was all that was left in Positano?!) What we got was an amazing little apartment directly on the main beach in Positano.... More

Eva R, Direttore generale at La Caravella Positano, responded to this review

Dear guests, We are very sorry to read these complaints. We want to clarify some points: "La Caravella" is not a Hotel but is a Residence. The apartments and the rooms are on the beach in the center of Positano, nothing is more central than La Caravella. The kitchen of the apartments and rooms are complete with all accessories. We...

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

The apartment is spacious consisting of a sitting area with sofa/ small kitchenette with stove top, sink & fridge. ( no microwave ) Kitchen table & TV in this area. Bathroom is sufficient... More
