My 2 girlfriends and I started our journey in London and then Paris. By far this was the largest room, however, it felt like a dungeon at times. The lighting was poor in both the bathroom and dining area. The room overlooked the roof & beyond that boasted a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. Although it had a big... More

My wife and 7 month old daughter stayed here for a week. It was a great experience! The owners were helpful and were very accommodating with our 7 month old daughter providing a crib and ensuring we had enough space in our room for her. The views were magnificent from our balcony! You are 113 steps from fornillo beach which... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at La Dolce Vita in Positano and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or to recommend it to others. Maryse was a charming host and we really enjoyed chatting with her every morning over breakfast. She recommended local restaurants and was sweet enough to assist with reservations when needed. Location- perfect location right... More

We have just returned from 6 nights at La Dolce Vita and had a really lovely time. It was fantastic accomodation - very clean, with beautiful sea views and a spacious terrace. A genuine thank you to the owners Vincento and Maryse for being so warm and friendly throughout our stay, always willing to answer any questions or deal with... More

I made a booking with a hotel la Dolce Vita ( Positano / Italy) from 7th - 11th August his summer for me and my two children. Whilst I was in Rome ( three / four days before arrival in Positano) I rang the hotel to speak to the manageress to confirm the booking. I gave her my name and... More

Really unfortunate experience. I had high hopes for this place. My girlfriend and I had a really really nice vacation, and this was the only speed-bump on the way. Don't get me wrong, the view was amazing. Positano is an amazing little town. You're paying for the town, not really the room. The room was expensive and it was not... More

This is definitely a gem and I would recommend to friends. Our room was spacious, clean, had a private balcony and looked out to Fornillo beach. The location is perfect if you are looking to go to the beach and relax in Positano. The staff were friendly and helpful. Access to the residence from the port and town centre is... More

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
