The hotel is perched on the cliff above Positano village. The views are fantastic and our rooms were pleasant enough, although fairly basic. The hotel is a warren of rooms and terraces which we found fun but some would be irritated by it. The staff seemed pleasant and helpful enough until they realised that there were better tippers staying at the hotel than our (English) family! The waiters had happy smiley (give us a tip) faces until the Americans arrived, then all of a sudden it was impossible to get the waiter to even acknowldege that we were there never mind give us any service.
One real bonus is that the hotel has its own (though tiny and rocky) beach, and these seem to be VERY scarce along this bit of coast.
One real downside is how difficult it is to get in to the town and back. We thought one mini bus every 1/2 hour ought to be fine until we discovered how many other guests were queuing up to get on it. We very nearly witnessed a punch up at the bus stop on the way back from town as everyone pushed and shoved their wives in front of them so as to be able to get one of the very limited number of spaces available. Well, after waiting 1/2 hour for the mini bus in the first place no one wanted to have to wait another 1/2 hour and then still risk not being able to get on it. Remember - only the English know how to queue!
