I can't help but smile when I think back of our time at La Fenice-it was divine! We had already spent 4 nights in the thick of Positano and had 2 nights at La Fenice. La Fenice is like staying with family- the Mandara family are welcoming and so hospitable, their property is highly maintained and immaculate. Highlights of La... More

OK, LF isn't for everyone, for one thing there are a lot of steps. However, if you are searching for that one unusual, "romantic" and impossibly perfect hideaway on the Amalfi, well, this is it. Oh, and you don't mind waking up with a cat snuggled up next to you. So, blue skies, azure sea, great breakfast fabulouse view, rustic... More

Wow what a find. La Fenice is owed and run by Costantino, Angela, Julio, Jackamo and staff and they cannot do enough to help you in any which way. The room are spacious and cleaned everyday and our view was nothing short of spectacular from our private balcony. Breakfast is served on a slightly lower terrace which was a delicious... More

La Fenice styles itself as a B&B, but it's way and beyond that. Helpful, amusing and cant-do-enough-for-you attitude in perhaps what must be one of the best locations (by which I mean slightly away from the hordes) in Positano. A private beach, pool, lunch al fresco, breakfast terraces and simple, but comfortable, rooms retaining a relaxed and perfectly unsophisticated experience.... More

Small (14 rooms spread over 5-6 levels up the cliff face) family run property. Great views opening directly to the sea, fantastic balconies (check, not all rooms have sea views), with the balcony doors open bed looks straight out to a magnificent vista. Family members all keen to interact, all (mum, dad and the two boys) great characters, adding to... More

Oh wow, I don't even know where to begin with this place. It was our favourite spot that we stayed during our travels through Italy. It's so incredible. The staff are so helpful and warm, the rooms are spacious, comfortable, and each have their own gorgeous view of the Mediterranean from their private balcony. The breakfasts in the morning were...

I've stayed at La Fenice for three years now, in May/June. I absolutely love that place - and the Mandara family. They are so delightful and courteous. I bring small tour groups from the US, and we stay at La Fenice. It's an amazing place built into the cliffs (as everything is on the Amalfi Coast). They have a variety... More

We where staying in the apartment of La Fenice just outside Positano. The location was kind of a hassle (internal bus stops at the apartment only 4 times per day). And the many steps from downtown Positano to the apartment where fun as an exercise, but not so much with full bags of groceries. That said: the apartment itself was... More

La Fenice really needs to be seen to be believed. My family and I were lucky enough to spend a week in this spectacular property. Constantino, his wife Angela, and their sons Guilio and Giacomo were the consummate hosts and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was enjoyable. They helped us design our days out,...
