This is more of a B&B than a hotel, and the position is excellent which was the main reason for booking it (I have been to Positano before and love Fornillo beach). The problem we encountered was in the extremely poor communication prior to our visit. Several months before, I had emailed the hotel twice to try to book directly,... More

Fantastic little hotel right on Fornillo beach, only a short walk from the centre. Clean, spacious rooms with a wonderful sea view. The staff is super friendly and Maryse is such a lovely lady! I will definitely stay here next time I go to Positano.

Located at the north beach, away from the highly populated tourist area, but close enough with a beautiful 10 minute winding path walk along the waters edge/cliff. Nothing fancy, but great view, clean, and spacious. Take the water taxi in !!! you won't have to climb that many steps - it is much easier than taking the bus. In fact... More

I would highly recommend this hotel for friendly couples for a very romantic holiday. We used the taxi service from the airport that was arranged through the hotel's very lovely owner Maryse by email before we arrived. Our driver was Nino and he was fantastic, pointing out points of interest along the way from Naples to Positano. We also booked... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in June. We decided to book after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor. Access to the house is down a huge amount of stairs and for this reason we would not reccomend the accommodation for families with young children. Older guests would need to be very fit. The owners were delightul and... More

Amazing holiday location on the beach so close you can hear the waves that send you into a deep sleep. Wonderful views from all the rooms available. From the start of our holiday the owner Maryse and husband made us feel very welcome. We traveled down the stairs which only take you 10mins it's easier traveling down the stairs than... More

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Maryse (the owner) was wonderful and went out of her way to accommodate us! The room we had had a beautiful balcony with beach view and was great to wake up to every morning. It was a two minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk into town. It was also... More

Combines perfect mix of quiet seclusion overlooking private beach, yet just minutes from main centre by lovely cliff side walk. A small hotel of only 4 rooms I think, I had it to myself for most of the week. The owners live there, and were most hospitable and friendly, even giving me an apartment with larger balcony due to a... More

This is an excellent place to stay on the Amalfi cost. Run by a very nice, friendly couple, each room has a balcony with an amazing view. The rooms are clean and tidy and each room a little different. Right next to the beach and approx. 10 mins to the main part of town. We would recommend this to everybody!

I recently took a girl trip to Italy with two of my friends and my stay here was the best part of my trip. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable for three people and the views were spectacular. We arrived by ferry and the B&B was just a short walk from the beach. Unfortunately, we took the long way... More
