Only had one night here so my review will be limited. But really enjoyed my brief stay, the location and the staff. This hotel has all the charm of the Amalfi Coast. You are walking distance to everything.

We did not stay at the hotel, but had dinner here twice during the 5 days we stayed in Positano. The food was great, the service was knowledgable and helpful and most importantly, the view was stunning! Get there early so you can see the sunset. Most italians eat late so you have no problems getting in if you go... More

Positano is amazing to begin with! Most precious gem of Italy! This hotel is amazing. It is literally next door to famous Sirenuse, so your view is identical. We stayed at the suite with extra room for kids, 1 and half baths, amazing balcony, fresh orchids in the room, tastefully appointed furnishings. The place is dreamy. This is a gem... More

Beautifully situated with fantastic views! All staff members were very accommodating. The room was outstanding. We had a junior suite room with ocean side view. It was heaven. Breakfast was included which was very good!

We stayed for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff, especially Carmela, were extremely helpful and friendly. She changed our type of room at check-in to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, set up a car service to Pompeii and also Naples train station, and also set up some reservations. She did it all with... More

We stayed for 5 days and it was more than we ever imagined. Junior suite is very spacious and we absolutely loved the balcony jacuzzi. The view is breathtaking! The receptionists are very nice and always very helpful. Short walk down to the shops and beach. Breakfast was good, we miss the capuchino with the unforgettable view of Positano.

We came here in off peak season and were so happy with the quite environment. The hotel is very well located, just a few minutes walk from the beach and the main streets. The receptionists were very helpful. There is a parking garage in the same street, so you only have to walk 1 minute to your car. The rooms... More

The hotel was in a great location. Our room was beautiful with a balcony that afforded a spectacular view of Positano. It was extremely large in comparison to most European hotels. Great jacuzzi tub in the bathroom.The terrace dining area was a great setting allowing terrific views of the beach below. Breakfast was varied and very, very good. The staff... More
