The location looks a bit out of town on a map but in reality it was a 10 or 15 minute walk to get to Positano. We had a rental car and never had trouble finding a parking spot right in front of the hotel. The owner is fantastic and goes out of his way to be accommodating. He is... More

We stayed for four days in la maliosa during our honeymoon. We've been here once before for one day when we were staying in Napoli and someone tipped us to go see Positano. Back then we had little time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and decided this year to go back to the Amalf coast for our Honeymoon. There are... More

We stayed at La Maliosa for three nights and we wish we could've stayed longer! It's full of beautiful flowers, breathtaking views, and a peaceful atmosphere. Our rooms were clean and air-conditioned and we had a patio area with a few lounge chairs and a table to enjoy the view. Wi-Fi was a little spotty inside but if we were... More

It's true - Felix is a most eccentric man, but if you love to laugh and are easy going, you will find him beyond ridiculous and hilarious. The property, the accommodations, the location, perfection. We looked for ways to intentionally miss our flight home in order to stay in Positano longer. We both walked into town and took the windy... More

La Maliosa is like a little Oasis of relaxation. When you walk down the stairs into the wonderful garden you don't feel as if you are entering a B&B, it feels almost like coming home. I stayed in La Maliosa for two weeks, had a spacious room, good state, bathroom as well. All was very clean and there was air... More

We had a center room in this delightful B&B just outside the center of Positano and our view was stupendous. Felix and his staff of two lovely women are very helpful, do up a pretty good breakfast and are very nice to boot. The rooms only have large queen (almost king) beds, but they can't be made into two singles,... More

We booked at the last minute so accomodation was scarce! Our room was basic but comfortable with a small terrace. Lovely view onto the ocean & not a far walk into town & down to a lovely quiter beach, bagni d' Arienzo. Our room was right next to the breakfast serving area so was incredibly noisy from 7am Did not... More

Truly breathtaking views and impeccable grounds. Nice breakfast. I agree with the negative reviews concerning the owner. He is creepy and unfriendly. He told us he would have us a cab but when we arrived there was no cab and he was not to be found. His 2 staff members do what they can to be helpful but he is... More

Sleazy owner. Pursued me relentlessly despite me making it very clear that I was not at all interested. I felt very unsafe. So much so that I decided to leave and check into the B & B next door. Such unprofessional behaviour. As a solo female traveller, I should not have to expect this sort of behaviour.
