Stunning views as everyone else has said although it depends on your room. If you're in the 'cheaper' rooms downstairs, room 40 and under are ok otherwise your view is partially obscured by an old house in front. We had room 40 and it was huge, spotless and nicely decorated with a great jacuzzi (actually worth using unlike some). The staff wereostly lovely as opposed to some comments on here especially the woman at reception that was pleasant and helpful (but yes, what is with the señora that sits and watches over everyone eating breakfast?).
Nice surprises were a free bottle of limoncello, free beach towels and a good varied breakfast with more amazing views.
Only bad points were the patchy wifi that would sometimes work in our room and sometimes not (but is fine in the foyer - and what is up with this infuriating Italian username and password ticket system? You will find you are logged out so often you'll know the password by heart). Also, the hall noise permeates the rooms as do neighbors footfalls from above and beside you (very annoying) - worst if some selfish person walks around on the tiles in heels. So sleeping with earplugs is on the agenda if you're noise sensitive.
Would I recommend this hotel? Yes on almost all counts bar price - AU$900 for three nights? I know Positano is ridiculously expensive but I could stay in Sydney in 5 stars for that!
