“A piece of Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Villa Gabrisa for our one year anniversary and we loved this place. Although it's a little out of town from the main drop point you can take a bus for 1.40 euros and it's a 10 minute ride to the hotel. Once at the hotel you will be blown away. Hands down one of the best views of positano! It's amazing because each room has a balcony (terrace if you stay in the deluxe rooms) that face positano and it's amazing sea/land views. We were able to upgrade our 2nd night and it was totally worth it- everything was much bigger and more spacious not to say that a standard room is not spacious itself but the terrace and jacuzzi were nice touches. Each room had positanos charm with modern finishes. Hotel was just a walk/steps away from the beach and downtown (easier to walk down than back up to the hotel- would recommend the bus) What made the hotel complete was not only the location but the service provided. The staff was very welcoming and helpful in finding places to go/see/eat. They would make reservations for us without hesitation. Everything was top notch at this place and we were so happy we followed other reviewers and coming here. We also ate at the restaurant and would say that the food and view are too gorgeous to pass up. Breakfast is free every morning and there's no better way to start the day or your trip here at Villa Gabrisa! You won't be disappointed!

We just returned from spending two weeks in this beautiful hotel. I can't say anything bad about Hotel Villa Gabrisa. This is a family run hotel that has extremely high standards for every part of the hotel and restaurant. The location is perfect, on a road so no need to hike your luggage up the many stairs of Positano. Every room and the outdoor dining area have fantastic views. The rooms are beautifully decorated, well maintained and very clean. The Rispoli family went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful time, they even arranged a cooking class in their kitchen, recommended tours, arranged transportation, explained the bus system and answered all of our questions. The hotel and wine bar, da Gabrisa did not disappoint. Food was excellent, service was great. They have a wonderful wine selection and the staff is very knowledgeable in making recommendations. We wholeheartedly recommend Hotel Villa Gabrisa.

Its a nice spot way up high that gives you a fantastic view if Positano below . Nice eating spots are only a few steps away . You will get plenty of exercise coming up from the bottom as you are at least 100 plus stairs or most of the way up the hill this is an advantage when your eating as well as you do in Italy. We got the only room available when we booked which was a suite , a super large room with a front view over the town and the sea , higher priced than the other rooms but a wonderful view

We were lucky enough to snag a room here for one night in June. We were passing through and had dinner at the lovely restaurant overlooking Positano. A very romantic location. We were taken aback by the exceptionally good service, which we had not been used to in Italy (service is very hit and miss in Italy I find). The food was top notch, fresh and flavourful, yet not over the top expensive. We enjoyed our dinner so much we asked our waitress if the hotel had a room (even though we already had a room at another hotel in Sorrento). We were delighted to find out that they had one room left and could accommodate us. One of the best decisions of our entire trip, as we woke up to one of the most spectacular views one can get in Positano. The owner was super-friendly, accommodating and knew exactly the right balance of socializing and letting us have our time alone also. As many of the reviews have noted, this place really is heaven on earth. A GEM!!!

We can't wait to come back here.

Room Tip: Any room is good. If you can afford it - splurge for the suite:) Well worth it, especially with the...

We had 3 days in one of the suites at Villa Gabrisi. The rooms were beautifully decorated and had everything you could need. The deck had a million dollar view towards the 3 Sirens. Robin the ex pat (41 years) Kiwi owner couldn't have been more helpful.

Beautiful location, pretty hotel, run by friendly, helpful family. Extremely clean. Stayed for 7 nights half board. Had most meals outside overlooking beautiful bay, very romantic! Food excellent, both breakfasts and dinners exceptionally good. Really enjoyable experience, would highly recommend it.

We were in Italy in May. Remained very happy with the stay in this hotel. Good and clear rooms, friendly personnel, very tasty food in restaurant. A perfect place to stay in Positano. I would recommend Villa Gabrisa to any friend.
