Great hotel with a spectacular view. We had a superior room which was actually a mini suite with a balcony view, chaise lounge, etc. Only 2 flaws... The mattresses and pillows were not the best and the gentleman who was the daytime receptionist was not extremely friendly or helpful. A fake smile and disinterest. Otherwise great room and conveniently located.

Overall was a great experience! My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, the service and the room were great. Really ideal location close to shops and food, without having to walk a million stairs or climb steep hills to get the beach. Beautiful view as well from our room, only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the fact... More

Stayed a week in Positano and stayed in two different hotels. The first one had a amazing view so we where a little bot disappointed when we got the room at the "bottom" as looking over a white roof. Especially since we traveled with a baby and stayed many hours in the room. Positano is expensive and this is not... More

We stayed for 4 nights with our 8 year old daughter. The location is perfect. Close to shopping, restaurants and the main walk way down the beach and markets. The staff were very nice and friendly. Happy to help with any questions or requests we had. The last night of our stay was a massive party in Positano with fireworks... More

I will never again stay at that place. We paid expensive for a room with jacuzzi, when I tried to use it, It was not working. They sent the cleaning lady to fix it, she couldn't of course, nobody else came. The lady at the front desk is really rude! She didn't show us anything, she has such an attitude,... More

We only stayed one night in this room and it was perfect. The terrace is HUGE and includes two tables, a hot tub and a few lounge chairs. We checked in at 2pm and didn't leave again until check out. Room service was a 4/5, but the views, hot tub and professionalism of the staff was unbelievable. I would recommend... More

We had perhaps the best room in Positano here which we will dream about for years to come. We booked a Junior Suite and were given an absolutely incredible room with an even more incredible balcony complete with private hot tub and like 4 different sitting areas with an unmatched view and vantage point over Positano. The room itself was... More

Stayed here for two nights while traveling throughout Italy. The hotel was great with pristine views of the water, clean and comfortable rooms and wonderful ambiance. We came earlier than our check-in time and were asked to come back when the room was ready. The staff held on to our bags while we explored. Once we got into the room... More
