We stayed 5 night at Villa Franca and couldn't recommend it more highly. The views are superb and the room we had was perfect! The rooftop pool was a major positive and the service was excellent - nothing was too much trouble (restaurant bookings, organising cars etc)

Stayed just a night to get away from the apartment we rented....but it was luxurious and a little more expensive than the apartment. We didn't cook in the apartment and this would have been a much better choice. Great pool area but the friendliest and most accommodating staff.

I loved our experience at Villa Franca - all of it: the property, the staff, the food, the walk and the VIEWS! I had wanted to stay here since I heard about it a few years ago from a travel agent endorsed by Conde Nast Magazine, and it definitely lived up to my expectations! Although I had reserved a panorama... More

I would strongly recommend you do NOT stay in this hotel, Villa Franca. We were booked to stay in this hotel in Positano for 4 nights from 6th Aug but ONLY stayed 2 nights despite being charged for the 4 full nights (4 nts x €250)!! Here's what happened.. On arrival, we did not receive a welcome never mind a... More

Although at the top of the village and some 900 or so steps to the beach, the location of this hotel provides the best views in Positano. We were in the separate building, just up from the main hotel, with all rooms overlooking the town and sea. The room quality was superb, including bathrobes, slippers and a jacuzzi bath. This...

A friend and I had booked two, expensive, ocean view rooms months in advance. We were booked for 10 days. When we arrived there was only one room with a narrow, but beautiful, view. The room was small, cramped, and directly above the dining room. Concerned about the noise, I was assured that the hotel stopped serving dinner at 11PM.... More

I really fell in love with this hotel. Its right at the top of the hill and you get an amazing view of Positano. The rooms are very cute, with a rustic feel to them, make sure to get a room with a balcony facing the beach, the view from up there is breathtaking. The beds are comfortable and the... More

As soon as you walk into the hotel you see the spectacular view. The restaurant/bar is entirely glass so you see a perfect view of Positano. We had a room over looking the water. You pay extra for the view but why would you come to Positano and not wake up to the beauty of it. You must have a... More
