Just got back from a 7 night stay at the Villa Franca as a mother/daughter trip, and while the views of the hotel are absolutely breathtaking, the hotel is not 5 stars and needs serious improvement. Let's start with the good: -Views: hotel sits above Positano and the scenery is stunning. 360 views of the ocean/mountains/town -Pool: on the roof.... More

Pros: 1) Great views from our balcony, from the restaurant, from the pool. 2) Great brunch and dinner staff. 3) Great food. Cons: 1) No shuttle during the day so you are forced to stay in the hotel or pay $20 cab fee. 2) Bathroom was old, had mildew on the sides, no extra items in bathroom - just basics.... More

Our shuttle bus service is free of charge and runs during morning, afternoon and evening. During the afternoon it starts at 5 p.m. The price of our drinks is the same that all the other bars here in Positano do, and it is not compulsory to drink in our hotel. Moreover, if you booked online for one person but you... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and it was really fantastic. Gorgeous views, great service and beautiful room. Highly recommend going to the restaurant as it was the best meal we had on our whole trip. Something that needs attention however if the wifi. It was absolutely terrible and became very frustrating whist trying to communicate for business. At this... More

The worst hotel a family can stay in unlike any other hotel each one of the staff has a policy of his own! Very weard treatment! They greet you as you arrive by mentioning all the expenses! They waste your time in meaningless conversations if your booking was done through a website ours was through expedia which stated it's a... More

We are sorry but we don't agree with anything. Most of our clients leave the hotel a lot after the check out time using our complimentary room to have a shower or get change and leaving their luggage in our deposit. Moreover the extras has to be paid in every hotel of the world. Kind regards More

Full review to come, once we check out. This place runs a classic bait and switch scam. The owner clearly tries to prey on minorities to strong-arm guests into accepting the reality of the (falsely advertised) situation, once they check in. Zero stars. Also, the concierge told us they have the highest rated restaurant in Positano, but they are rated... More

Happy to not have accepted the extortion from a not real client. This client spent less than 24 hours in our hotel pretending what he didn't pay. This is a wrong example of Tripadvisor. We were expecting this comment. Best regards. More

We stayed at the Villa Franca for 3 nights in a standard room with a side view. Overall, the hotel was a very lovely one. While not a 5 star, you will not be disappointed. The room was nice and spacious and featured the lovely mosaic tile from the Amalfi Coast area. The daily breakfast was quite tasty and included... More

A trendy style hotel in a good location with awesome views. The breakfast buffet was really good with a great variety of delicious food. The rooms were trendy but far too cluttered for such a small space. In actual fact the entire hotel was over designed in terms of looking cluttered with too much furniture. The pool location was great... More

We stayed at the Villa Franca for 5 nights recently - 2 spent in a Superior room and 3 spent in a Standard room (we booked late so were lucky just to get a spot in the hotel). Overall we were very pleased. While it's certainly not a high-tough 5-star resort, it provided us with an excellent experience. THE GOOD:... More

Villa Franca is a five star hotel in Positano, Italy. It is perched high on the hill overlooking the ocean and the view can only be described a spectacular. The decor in the lobby and dining areas is luxurious but comfortable. The hotel rooms have different grades and we had paid for an uninterrupted sea view at around 475 Euro... More
