We stayed five nights in late September on the third floor (would have liked to seen and possibly stayed on the fourth floor which seems to have a larger porch in front of each room). Our room was very comfortable, bright and airy, with a nice bathroom and a small balcony and patio (just enought for two chairs and a small table) with panoramic, really fantastic, 200 degree views over the town, harbor, Mediterranean sea and mountains behind the town. The breakfast/dining room has the same views and a friendly and attentive wait staff. The receptionists looked a bit tired but were highly knowlegeable and unfailingly helpful with all of our requests.
One thing that I would like to see on their website is a better map and description showing where the hotel is located and how to get there the first time. The hotel is on a set of (public) staircases rising from the closest road that have to be climbed and it is not immediately apparent, the first time you come down road, just where the hotel is. The local bus stop is at the large Grotto on the right (a very distinctive feature that cannot be missed). There is walkway just past the Grotto on the right, from which you take an immediate right and climb several flights of stairs to the hotel (looking for hotel signs at each turn). If you call in advance or speak to the attendant at the parking lot more or less across the street with the Conca D'oro sign (Fratelli Martinelli?), they will send a porter down to bring your bags up the stairs (really essential with a large bag).
While in Positano, we did the Walk of the Gods, which is highly recommended. Also recommended is the walk from Faro to the Grotta Azzura on Capri. If you are going to visit Amalfi and/or Ravello, we highly recommend taking the sea taxi as the buses fill up with standing room only on twisty, windy roads for what is nearly an hour-long trip from Positano to Amalfi.
