She was so rude & we were treated as if we were staying for free & she was having us stay as a favour, not as paying customers. To top this off, the room was infected with insects, ants all over the... More

What a beautiful spot located away from all the hustle and bustle of central Positano! Yes it was a little hard to find however we were a little unprepared and just followed a rough map and sure enough we came across a sign leading us down the stairs.

My wife and I stayed at Residence La Dolce Vita for 4 nights and loved our stay. The hotel is perfectly located just above Fornillo beach with several small restaurants/bars. There is a walking path to the other beach and main part of town. It is very quiet at night and all you hear is the sound of the ocean.... More
