My friend and I spent two nights in August in I Giardini dei Sensi. We loved the fact of being outside Positano, so quiet ,but at the same time relatively close, walking is about 2 km. If you go by taxi to Positano is 15 € , don´t pay more , it is a fixed price( a lyer taxi driver made us pay 20 € saying that it was night fee, we didn´t know that it was just 5 minutes ride!). Or you can go by local bus, around 2 € /person. Just down the appartments you have a quiet beach with a nice bar as well to eat. Or if you walk 15 minutes left direction to Malfi you find another beach just down the hotel San Pietro, long stairs down but worth it, a great beach restaurant, Da Adolfo.
The rooms in I Giardini dei Sensi are decorated with a lot of taste, and you have a kitchen, refrigerator, dishes, silverware.. so we recommend you to buy drinks and food in a grocery store and enjoy it in your room, you have a little private terrace outside, or you can eat it in the top terrace with spectacular views.
Think as well that if you want their porter to carry up your suitcases to the room ( advisable because there are a lot of steep steps) , ask first how much is the service because , our experience in Positano was that one day they tell you one price and the next day it is another price, so you can not trust them too much. We didn´t like that.
Roberto, the owner is very friendly but he rounds the prices of the extra services as he feels like, so a wonderful place to stay, but careful with prices.
