This was our favorite hotel on our 2 week Spain/Italy Trip.
Getting there: We flew into Naples and then took a bus from outside the Naples airport to Sorrento, then switched buses at the Sorrento stop. Ask the bus driver to drop you off in front of the hotel instead of the main Positano bus stop (it is a 30-40 minute walk from the main bus stop).
Location: 5-10 minutes to two different black sand beaches much more secluded and quiet than the main Positano beach. 30-40 minutes walking to the center of Positano/Positano's main beach.
Our rooms were great- beautiful views of the Mediterranean and Positano coast. Clean and big too!
We ate dinner twice in the hotel restaurant which is so gorgeous with flowers everywhere. Very romantic. The food was great and reasonably priced. We were even serenaded one night by Giovanni's sister and friend.
And of course- the best part of the entire experience was Giovanni and his family. They really made us feel at home. This is a family run business- Giovanni is the waiter and owner, his sister is the chef and housekeeper, and their nephew is the bus boy. Felt like we got to see a glimpse of real Italian family life. Giovanni was nice enough to drop us in town and helped with anything we needed.
Will definately be coming back.
