From the moment we arrived for our honeymoon we were struck with terrible service from the owner Maryse. She was so rude & we were treated as if we were staying for free & she was having us stay as a favour, not as paying customers. To top this off, the room was infected with insects, ants all over the... More

Just magnificent in terms of location, view, hygiene and most importantly an exceptional customer service. Maryse, the owner is simply adorable and friendly. We had a great room overlooking the sea. If u r still energetic, u will enjoy the place even more as u will have to go up the stairs (100 steps) to reach the residence... That would... More

What a beautiful spot located away from all the hustle and bustle of central Positano! Yes it was a little hard to find however we were a little unprepared and just followed a rough map and sure enough we came across a sign leading us down the stairs. We arrived by bus so thank god we had back packs as... More

My wife and I stayed at Residence La Dolce Vita for 4 nights and loved our stay. The hotel is perfectly located just above Fornillo beach with several small restaurants/bars. There is a walking path to the other beach and main part of town. It is very quiet at night and all you hear is the sound of the ocean.... More

It has very difficult acces , if you plan to go make sure you hire a porter to bring the luggage. The place is clean and has direct ocean view. The parking place that is recommended is also... More

My wife and I were celebrating our first year of marriage in Italy; rounding out our stay in Positano. She chose our accommodations with the following parameters in mind: a view of the ocean and no more than 5 mins walking distance from the beach. La Dolce Vita satisfied both. The room was spotless with a recently updated interior /... More
