My wife and I stayed at La Dolce Vita as part of a larger Italian vacation. Positano was the first of 4 cities that we stayed in. While there are a lot of steps to get to La Dolce Vita, thats just part of Positano. Plus, when we parked, the parking employee called down and one of the owners came... More

We arrived in Positano after travelling from Ravello on two buses via Amalfi but then had to get a taxi to find the hotel. However, as it turned out you can't get 'near' to the hotel by car as there are 198 steps to go down from the road to the beach where the hotel is located. But don't let... More

If you've decided to holiday in Positano and you accept that you need to climb a lot of steps to move around the town, then today is your lucky day! You have just clicked onto the most beautiful little hotel in Positano. After reading all of the positive reviews about this hotel before we booked it I was thinking "This... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon for 4 nights. Yes, it is a bit tricky to get your luggage to the hotel, you need to travel over many many steps. But, that's Positano! Every hotel requires travelling over multiple steps :) My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to a superior room for... More

My husband and I were very excited to stay at La Dolce Vita after reading wonderful reviews. We were celebrating our honeymoon and I had emailed with Maryse about this. She was absolutely wonderful over email and seemed excited to make an extra special stay for us for our honeymoon. However, about 2 weeks before we left for italy, I... More

My husband and I stayed here last April. Location is good although a lot of steps involved but then its in Positano. We had a lovely room with a balcony and sea view. For breakfast we usually had croissants, fresh fruits, cheese, yoghurt and Vincenzo's capuccino. About 10 min. walk to the main beach Spiaggia Grande. Some of the hotels... More

I´ve been here last August with my daughter for a weekend and just loved it!! The owners are very nice, it´s close to the beach and there´s a very nice pathway over the sea to take you to Positano. The room was big, comfortable and the breakfast was nice too. I definitely reccomend it!

La Dolce Vita was an amazing place to stay! From the delicious cappuccinos in the morning, made by Vincenzo, to the stunning views of the sea - this place was a dream come true. The rooms are incredibly spacious with lovely new bathrooms, decorated with blue ceramic tile. The showers have nice hot water and excellent water pressure. Breakfast is... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at la dolce vita. Our room was beautiful with a large balcony looking out to the sea. The owners were very friendly and helpful, giving tips on activities and restaurants that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. We would definitely recommend staying here to explore beautiful positano. There are quite a few... More

My husband son and I spent a delightful night and wonderful conversation over breakfast at La Dolce Vita thanks to Maryse and Vincenzo (who makes a great cappuccino l might add)! Regret that we only stayed one night. Most comfortable stay we've enjoyed so far! Fitness center? Those stairs will have your glutes tightened up in no time!! No swimming... More
