I was very nervous when I booked the hotel. However, after going through all the comments and reviewer's pictures, I gave it a try. I was thrilled when I arrived, The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. The rooms were bright and clean. The breakfast was great. They were so accommodative with our gluten intolerances and brought in gluten... More

We have been long time customers. We stayed at and loved the Villa Franca over a dozen tmes over the past 30 years. We met Franca years ago, and fondly remember Mario (her brother) whose warmth and charm is greatly missed following his passing a year or so ago. Many of the staff we've known over the years no longer... More

Booked our trip late, so the only room available was in the secondary building. We loved the place. Beautiful room and view with wonderful service. It is a major walk to the beach, but everyplace is.. .that's Positano!!!!

Stayed at this hotel on our second stop in Italy Positano. The hotel itself is situated up the hill from the tourist area of Positano down by the water. When I say up the hill it is literally a walk up 1/2 a mile up a hill or approximately 600 steps. The hotel does provide a limited shuttle in the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip through Italy. It was a great way to end our time in Italy since it was so relaxing. The hotel itself is quite nice. The staff speak English and were friendly enough. The breakfast was great and worth getting out of bed for in the... More

I thought I had better write, as some of the previous reviews are so inaccurate. A number of points are worth making. If you have small children don't go to Positano, Think a little more carefully about what children like and go somewhere else instead. Do your research!! If you want o get drunk, make lots of noise and irritate... More

This hotel has an amazing views. Upon arriving, they helped us bring our bags to our room. We had a bottle of Prosecco compliments of management for our wedding anniversary. That was a nice touch. The room was small with a partial sea view and a walkout balcony, we did not use it. We ate 3 nights out of our... More
