I had been looking forward to this hotel as have heard such great things about it from many people. In most ways it was truly excellent, including the personal welcome from all staff, the beautiful decor and furnishings, the position close to the beach and shops, the lovely breakfast overlooking the bay of Positano, the wonderful gym and spa area, the range of activities on offer for guests and so much more.
To begin with we were accommodated in a very small room which barely fitted our suitcases and had a limited sea view when we had asked for a sea view room. It was too small to spend any time in the room. We were moved to a bigger room for our last two nights with a wonderful view. When you book make sure to check the room dimensions and what kind of sea view you will have.
The swimming pool was a little small and being swimmers we like to do some laps. This was tricky as people tend to stand in the pool. Anyway take the chance to go and swim in the sea. It is truly refreshing and beautiful there.
The free yoga class offered was not great and consisted of the instructor saying one word for each pose - eg. dog, fish etc. It was hard to see her so if new to yoga would be pretty pointless.
The massage I had was outstanding and the steam room and various saunas were excellent. The cold plunge pool should be icy cold if possible.
Breakfast was great. As some others have commented the restaurant and teas/coffees etc are very expensive. The restaurant is very good - try the degustation and enjoy the lovely musicians. And then go out and experience some of the local restaurants.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and we met some lovely people.
