We stayed in another expensive hotel fthe first d=few days we were on the Amalfi coast. Then we changed to a more cost efficient hotel. This fot the bill and was the only hotel that had availability. We were nervous at first but all for nothing. Although this is a residence, not really a hotel. there is no lobby, no... More

This hotel is beachfront. The pictures for their website and on trip advisor do not make it clear that this hotel is beachfront Positano, its the only one. Every other hotel is a steep climb upstairs. Yes, the climbing hotels have spectacular views, but the stairs in Positano are stairmaster grade, straight up pretty much up. This is really not...

To be really honest the place is average but what really makes it special is ROSSA. She made us fall in love with this place and can call it home! It's located in the center of the town and everything is walking distance. It's direct on the beach with many water activities including the port where you can visit Capri... More

I chose this place because of its location right on the beach. I didn't want to deal with climbing up and down the stairs to the hotel when we were in Positano only for 2 days. I had read some of the reviews here and was prepared on arrival with reservation information, apartment name and rate. We arrived one hour... More

All in all, this was a great place to stay as it was on the beach with a balcony over looking the sea. Every morning enjoying a coffee and every evening sipping a glass of wine while taking in the beach / sea. Most resorts you can't stay this close to the beach. The restaurant next door gave 10% discount... More

Looked forward to a great beach front experience and spent extra for a generous (30sqm) triple room/apartment with a town view. Instead got a small room with a trundle bed, looking straight into a rock. No flexibility, either from the hosts or from booking.com, luckily only here for two nights.

I booked to stay at La Caravella w/ a 3rd party booking, and chose the options to pay at the hotel. But I also chose the option to cancel within reason for extra per night (just in case). June 22, 2016 I reserved for September 14th thru September 18, 2016. It was almost $500.00 USD per night! I had the... More

Location was great ...glad I didn't have to go up the hill every day. The manager is tough but just need to break the ice with her and she was very helpful, in fact got lots of discounts for us. Rooms are small but very clean and everything worked.

I don't get why it's a thousand Aussie dollars a night for something way less than would be deemed a two bedroom apartment . The second room is curtained off - no window . The kitchen is a joke I don't get why they don't tend to the garden in particular the weeds Good location but that can only take... More

An agent booked this for us, sight unseen, and that was a big mistake. Room was not at all what was shown on Internet and in print marketing materials. Rooms were very small, rundown furniture and not very clean. Service was bad. Bathroom smelled like septic tank. The only positive was location and other deficiencies don't make up for that....
