Small resort hotel that was very nice, but quiet in the offseason. High up the hillside, so nice views from the room and nicely appointed lobby with a bar. Place would probably be very different in the summer. Did not eat at the restaurant, but served a very good buffet. Room was small, but very nice, with a small terrace... More

This hotel exceeded all of our expectations. There are so many great things to say that this review will not even do it justice. The staff are welcoming and accommodating. We had a wonderful and fairly large room with a view of the water and the city. It is situated on the top of the hill that provides amazing views... More

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our honeymoon. Nothing more romantic and Italian than hotel villa Franca Positano. Lovely hotel, food, views, service. Would definitely recommend. 5*

i stayed at this beautiful boutique hotel in November with my partner. The hotel is set high up on the hillside in Positano meaning it benefits from the most stunning 360 degree views. Our room was beautiful, gorgeous drapes framed the floor to ceiling patio doors which opened out onto a good sized balcony with an amazing see view. Although... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. The view from the room was fantastic over looking the town, sea and mountains. The room (28) was very nice, clean and airy if not a little small, pleased we paid for a up-grade. The bathroom was again a little small but the shower was the best my friend had ever... More

A truly gorgeous property - whether the cliffside restaurant, 360 degree rooftop pool, or the balcony views from the room. Helpful and engaging staff that take pride in the hotel and their ability to enhance your stay in their town. The van picks up and drops off in Downtown Positano should you not want to make the walk (or climb... More

Rooms with terraces facing the water have the best views and are fairly spacious for Italy. Nice amenities including robes, mini fridge. Although hotel is a long walk down to central area, there is a shuttle that operates on the half hour starting in the afternoon that takes you at least half way down. Breakfast is included and is very... More

Had a wonderful stay. Beautiful view, polite and helpful staff! Would recommend to everyone! Staff would recommend places to see and restaurants; hotel was clean and had beautiful flower arrangements. Truly enjoyed our evening cocktail with the talented bar tender! I am very disappointed in myself that I cannot recall his name, he was great!

The two hotel managers began to argue with me on checkout, when I responded to their question of how we enjoyed our stay. I reply by explaining that the air conditioning hadn't worked for three days, after I had made four visits to the front desk and three phone calls during our three day stay. Second, after a ten hour... More

The views here from the top of Positano's "bowl" will take your breath away, but so will the dreamy beds and well-appointed rooms, and the rooftop swimming pool, bar and outdoor dining. The glossy white and blue tile everywhere makes it more appealing. This is Top-of-the-World Positano. Stunning. Romantic day and night. That also means there will be abundant stairs... More
