We originally were planning on staying directly in Amalfi however by luck/ fluke ended up staying at this hotel in Positano. Wow! The hotel is perfect for the stay. Amazing and friendly service, very clean, a great location as you can get around to all the other sites very easily. Great view and this was our best experience out of... More

This was our first time on the Amalfi coast and we had booked the hotel (and the location) through a travel agent based largely on what we had seen and read of it on Trip Advisor. Expectations were high but we were not disappointed. This is a small family-owned and family-run hotel which offers spectacular views of Positano and the... More

This little Hotel is in a great location for everything up or down the hill. It's very clean our room was serviced every day, with clean towels daily. In fact the girls put all my toiletries, perfumes, on display it was lovely to get back to the room & it all look wonderful. The lady in the afternoon who made... More

I can't say enough good things about this place - the front desk was fabulous and helped us plan our daily itinerary; the location was great - easy to find and not far from the bus stop; the room was unique and thoughtfully decorated as well was being very comfortable and clean; but the best part was the breakfast which...

Can't say enough about this hotel. Room was a good size with a balcony and spectacular views. In the center of things and yet not affected by the noise that accompanies hotels closer to the marina. A short walk down the hill to shops and the marina and a short walk up the hill to some great restaurants and hotels... More

Five night stay. Midway up up the hill (cliff maybe), close to main shopping and attractions (waterfront). Can go down or up the street for restaurants and stores, for equally good selection. Hotel room was comfortable and clean with great view of town and sea from very large balcony. Good breakfast buffet with choice of coffee's. Friendly staff. Able to... More

the patio was wonderful, we could sit there a gaze at the ocean, it was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of seating areas. The only thing I can say is the second shift receptionist was extremely unfriendly and possibly down right rude. Otherwise our stay was fabulous and in a perfect location

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is perfectly located, near to shops and a short walk down to the beach. The internal Positano bus stop is just a short walk away, as for the SITA bus to travel along the Amalfi coast. The room was large (we had booked a deluxe double) and had a... More

Front desk people were a bit unfriendly and seemed disinterested. Rooms are nice with balcony and table and chairs. location is also good. breakfast is not great, but they do fruit, brioches, etc. and have coffee, cappuccinos, juice. would stay here again, but the front desk needs to improve customer service for sure. oh, and my parents room- the shower...

This is a long review, but I hope you find it helpful. I would give 2.5 if I could. In March 2014 I made reservations for my sister and I at Royal Prisco, after carefully researching hotels in Positano. I'm puzzled by the TripAdvisor reviews of Royal Prisco because my experience is so different from the others. The description of... More
