We have been coming to this family run hotel for many years and it feels almost like a second home. We love it and so has every one we have brought here. There is no better place to wake up and step onto the verandah or terrace and gasp at the view; no better place to sit at your table in the restaurant and marvel at the sun on Priano or the moon reflecting on the bay; no better place for lunch or a drink than in the beach bar down the steps and no better place for people watching than the beach. The hotel was built in the 1950s and the original rooms on the first floor are still the nicest in my opinion. They are simple and well proportioned and you can lay in bed and see and hear the sea. The family and staff are kind and helpful, work very hard and care about service. If you are looking for high priced ostentatious luxury this is not for you, but if you want a laid back, relaxing holiday in a gorgeous spot right on the beach with real people you will love it. The beach is pebble so take shoes to go into the water for swimming. The loungers and parasols can be hired for 7 euros each and are laid out in ranks, which is not to everyones taste but nice for reading, sunbathing and people watching. The price includes showers and changing facilities but with your room a few seconds away you may not need these.
If you are not hiring a car (scary) get a taxi from the airport as public transport takes all day and is tiring. Travelling to Naples, to Pompeii or other sites is difficult or time consuming without a car, but can be done. You can enjoy boat trips to Amalfi, Salerno, Capri and Sorrento or take the local bus to Montepertuso and Nocelle for wonderful walks and restaurants. Positano itself is a gentle walk along the coast path, it is very touristy and expensive, but beautiful and unique.
To reach this hotel, which is only accessible on foot or by boat you will need to take advice from the hotel, and it is not suitable for people with limited mobility. As ever, people have varying expectations and it may not be for you, but, to us it is heaven.
