This is one of my favourite hotels. If you have seen the movie, Under The Tuscan Sun, you will recognise it. Fantastic views of the ocean and the Duomo in the village. Breakfast consisted of pastries, fruits and a selection of coffee and tea all of which was delivered to our suite every morning for us to enjoy whilst admiring... More

I had never been to Positano before so although I had read about the town being built into the side of a mountain, I did not realise that all the shops and restaurants are either up the road or down the road - that being said the Alcione Residence is in a good location because it is about a 15...

The view from this hotel is absolutely amazing! The room has lots of distinctive qualities, which makes your stay very unique and enjoyable. We spent many hours on the balcony drinking wine and taking in the view! The lady who runs the hotels is super helpful and always pointed us in the right direction. The breakfast, which was included in... More

We stayed here for 3 nights after after visting Rome and was really looking forward to this accomodation which really let us down considering the price we paid. We felt we were visiting Nonna's house back home. It was extremely dated and had no real feel about it. It felt cold and uninviting. The only saving grace was that the... More

The whole process from enquiry to booking to staying was painless thanks to the wonderful people at Alcione. The wonderful room staff who delivered breakfast with a smile each day (the three girls that we meet were amazing dedicated / friendly employees - anyone would love to have them on staff) and who also kept the place absolutely spotless. And... More

This is the most wonderful Hotel to stay in when in Positano. Fernanda, her family and Staff made our 5 night stay an absolute pleasure. We had a wonderful, extremely large/spacious apartment overlooking the ocean which was fully self contained and had a huge bathroom with a fabulous shower cubicle - containing 3 separate showers - one of them was...

The Residence Alcione deserves all the great reviews. We recently stayed for 5 days: first in the aparment Sirena 1 on the 3rd floor which is the one with the huge terrace. It was awesome & so private. Then we stayed in Sirena 3, which was also great, with a smaller balcony, but the same great view. Almost all of... More

The first thing to remember in Positano is location, location, location. Lots of stairs, lots of struggling with suitcases. Residence Alcione is right on the main road in Positano. Simply walk out your door to grab a taxi and much easier coming and going. If you have difficulty walking, Positano is not the best city to visit. This hotel does... More

Loved this place - and would definitely return. We stayed in the room - Li Gali 2. It is was extremely spacious, including room for a couch, coffee table, plenty of storage and still room to move around. There was plenty of natural light during the day, which makes such a difference to a room in my opinion. It felt... More
