3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This review will sound harsh but as my profile indicates, my ratings are based upon expectations given where I'm visiting and the purpose of my stay. When paying 1,300 EUR a night (Junior Suite Deluxe Sea View), I expect excellent service and attention to detail. I stayed at the Hotel Villa Franc on the 15th to 17th of September with... More

Let's start off by saying that this is an absolutely wonderful hotel. You couldn't go wrong staying here in Positano. The pool (while small) has a wonderful view of the town, and the shuttle is quite helpful when you don't feel like trekking down 600+ stairs to the beach. The staff was warm and friendly (for Italian standards) and you... More

Villa Franca capped the end of a two week vacation for us and it proved to be the highlight of the trip. The staff are warm, attentive and go above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable and pleasant. If you need anything, they're happy to assist. The food and drink in the pool bar, breakfast buffet and restaurant... More

I have frequented Villa Franca many times over the past 15 years. It is by far my favorite location. The location is amazing- those views never get old. The views from the pool topside are breathtaking, the pool water refreshing. The rooms are lovely, it was a nice surprise to see several extras included this year. I prefer the Annex... More

We recently spent 3 nights here at this hotel. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly, given a complimentary glass of champagne and shown around the property and to our room. The front desk lady was very nice, as were the doormen. We were starving after traveling so we went straight up to the rooftop bar for lunch since they... More

We recently spent three nights at this lovely hotel. The ambiance was wonderful, only to be exceeded by the service of the exceptional staff. I must give extra thanks to Allessandro, who was especially charming, helpful, and generous to us. The hotel is 600 steps up from the beach, which we considered to be great exercise, but we often opted... More

Everything about this hotel is first-class. The decor is gorgeous and compliments the surroundings so perfectly, the room was beautiful, the bathroom luxurious and the rooftop pool and views are simply unreal. The breakfast was great and the hotel bar was a lovely place to relax with one of their many delicious cocktails. The staff was so kind, helpful and... More

To start off, I had very high expectations of this 5-star top rated hotel in Positano. My husband and I visited Positano on our honeymoon and stayed at a total of 3 hotels during our stay due to visiting during busy season. After having an amazing stay at a hotel near the beach we arrived at villa franca which we... More

Stayed here for a week with my wife - warm and professional staff, great food and superb décor. Would highly recommend HVF, it has a fantastic location and whilst the walk to the main square/beach can be a strain on the calves on the ascent, there is a shuttle bus service provided by the hotel, albeit not between 11am and...

Not sure why there were negative reviews about the staff...our experience couldn't have been different. From check-in to check-out the staff could not have been more friendly, attentive and accommodating. The General Manager, Restaurant Manager and all the facility staff were great. Our room was beautiful, the bedding was first class, the bathroom was large and really well equipped. The... More
