I would highly recommend this hotel for friendly couples for a very romantic holiday. We used the taxi service from the airport that was arranged through the hotel's very lovely owner Maryse by email before we arrived. Our driver was Nino and he was fantastic, pointing out points of interest along the way from Naples to Positano. We also booked him on our last day to go back to the airport and he was on time, no problem. Once you walk down all of those stairs to the hotel, and walk into your room and look out either from your terrace, balcony or huge window, you will be entranced and amazed at the beauty of the area. I too would not recommend this hotel (or Positano in general!) for people with young children or the elderly or less able. There are stairs everywhere and you need to be very able. My legs were certainly feeling it and found myself out of breath. It's better for couples who are able to walk easily. Our room was immaculate with a huge comfy bed, and a new bathroom. I loved the tiles and how simply pretty it all looked. Our terrace was amazing. We left the doors open so we could listen to the waves throughout the night. We also left them open when we went out with no problems. Plenty of lovely clean towels and beach towels were provided. You will need to take your own hairdryer. Breakfast was welcoming and gorgeous with fresh fruit that melted in your mouth, apricot-filled croissants, cheese, rolls, spreads, yoghurts, cereal, coffee, and juices etc.. on offer. Even the plates and cups were so pretty! Our room was cleaned each day. We visited the bar/restaurant below called Ferdinandos bar A LOT. We even hired the sun beds all day on the beach from this bar. They are the nicest, most welcoming & fun people! Their food and drink were the most reasonably priced (Positano is expensive!) and also the best. The coastal walk from Fornillo beach into the Positano town and main beach was incredibly romantic especially when dimly lit at night. The views will take your breath away! Thank you, Maryse for an absolutely wonderful stay! We hope to return one day!
