My husband and I can't say enough about this wonderful hotel. We were always greeted with smiles from the courteous and informative staff at the concierge desk (particularly Margherita) as well as the lovely housekeeping staff. All of our private transfers were arranged through the hotel and were punctual and impeccable. The included breakfast has a wonderful variety of hot... More

I have always wanted to visit Positano. It lived up to expectation. We booked here 6months early (need to do that for a room in high season) and in an expensive town, we felt it was good value for money. Right next door to the number 1 hotel (Le Sirenuse) at a fraction of the cost. It also meant we... More

Overpriced saying it mildly If you like strawberries with your muscles then this is the place for you. If you ask for blue fillet steak and get it medium and the arrogant owner argues with you then this is the place for you. If you want to pay 4 times over the odds for terrible food, yes this is the... More

We dined at the restaurant L'Ancora of this hotel. The view was fantastic and the food was nice though abit pricey. We ordered the seafood risotto and grilled fish with lemon dressing. Both were great!! But the fish was served half portion and some parts of the skin came with scales. The risotto cost €22 and half fish cost €22.... More

The restaurant above the hotel is fantastic! We stopped in along our walk and had the most delicious meal with a spectacular view. The spaghetti with tomato sauce was so simple and fresh, made with olive oil and fresh tomatoes. Hard to think of having it any other way now! Ravioli and Sea bass were delicious as well. Thanks!

We stayed here for 2 nights and we couldn't have picked a more perfect location! The other advantage is that you have access to the facilities of the sister hotel which has an amazing pool overlooking Positano. We stayed in room 214 which had a lovely view and was very clean. Thank you to Margherita & the nice staff at... More

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.
