I recently stayed at Covo with a friend of mine. We were absolutely blown away by the view when we entered our room. Photos do not do it justice! Every room at Covo looks onto the beach due to the structure of the building so you do not need to request or pay extra $ for this luxury. Covo is in the heart of positano right on the beach where all the action is. I have stayed at hotels on the beach before and they have been extremely noisy however this was different. The doors keep all of the noise out and due to where Covo is situated and noise doesn’t seem to reach the rooms. This hotel is perfect for those not wanting to climb 10000 stairs just to reach your hotel. The location is so central to everywhere... the beach, the restraunts, the shops. The buffet breakfast which is included in the rate is AMAZING! The waiters are so attentive, and the amount of food is honestly endless. Not to mention the views that surround you whether your at breakfast, dinner, or in the lobby (literally every table has a view of the ocean). Staying at Covo made my stay that much better in beautiful Positano. I found that many Airbnb’s and hotels were very overpriced for the value you are receiving and I realized that paying that little bit extra money was the best decision I made. The value for money at Covo is beyond great. The mini bar fridge and snacks are free, and are replaced everyday, the pool offers the most amazing views of the ocean, buildings beyond, and port. You also save $20 euros on a beach chair that you must pay in order to access the beach. Every single staff member I encountered at Covo was unbelievably lovely, constantly smiling, and greeting you as you pass by, and doing everything possible to make your stay great. We had so many spot on reccomendations for things like boat trips and dinners - our favourite restraunts were those recommended by Covo. I can not fault my experience here one bit and would definetly say the value for money in such an expensive town like positano, is well well worth it at Covo!

We were on our honeymoon and got upgraded to a gorgeous room on a lower floor with a very spacious balcony and stunning views. We loved the service and the bartenders in the lobby and the pool. Highly recommend the limoncello spritz! The pool is gorgeous and there were enough chairs in the shade for us to lay for an afternoon. The hotel is also right next to the ferry, making it so easy to take a day trip to Capri or Amalfi. The only issue we had in our room were the ants, that I see many people complain about. We found them in our bathroom only at first but unfortunately found them in our bed by the end of the trip.

We were in shoulder season of May, meaning lower price and more manageable numbers of visitors. Unseasonably cold weather cut back time in water (pool/sea) but the location cannot be bet. It is in a million photos for good reason.

Overall the hotel is very nice. The big decision in Positano is whether to stay up high or further down. Covo is kind of an oasis amid the bedlam of the beachfront. That said, some people might prefer a nice hotel up above, although I heard that some of those hotels have traffic noise issues for some rooms. The staff is very dedicated. I had the impression that management keeps them on a tight leash. Location is great if you will be boating and using the docks. The beach is quite a surprise: the views of the water are great, the views of the mountains and the houses in the mountain are great. The actual beach is nothing-jam packed and pebbly. It is not the hamptons, florida or wherever. You lie on your narrow chair for which you pay say 20 euros packed among everyone else. Stick with the pool. I don't know if there is such a thing as sandy beaches in Italy. Food in restaurant was good. The pool is beautiful-note that they kick you out at 7 pm. A jacuzzi in the room is a waste. The breakfast is very good; the staff is very attentive. The hike from bomarino to nocelle is long and rewarding. I recommend not renting a car to see the Amalfi coast. The roads are unreal. Boats to Capri and other destinations are convenient. Yes this hotel is very expensive, but value is an individual judgment. The location is great, but again it's very crowded by the beach. BTW, we did not use the porters. I'd rather save my money and lug my own suitcases for 5-10 minutes each way. BTW, i know some writers complain about noise from garbage disposal. We never heard that.
