I stayed in Rifugio degli Dei along with my wife, during 3 days, last week of October.
Many things have been said regarding the stairs, and they are an issue if you are not in the mood for walking and climbing a lot. But, to be honest, walking and climbing is an everyday activity in Positano and surrounding towns. The whole Amalfi Coast has been literally bult vertically, so steps and long stairs are the most common thing in the region. Be prepared for a lot of exercise.
But...every effort has its reward. The views from the room, the breakfast courtyard and the private terrace are outrageous. The service given by the Fusco family is unbeatable, the cakes, jams and other sweets home-made by the family mother are out of this world.
The room itself is comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. You have everything you need, even if you want to cook your own dinner.
The nights are very silent, appart form the birds, you can't hear a thing.
And when you get up and open the room window, the view is breathtaking.
The B&B is not located in Positano itself, but approximately 1 km away, in Arienzo, you can reach Positano centre easily by foot, or you can take the local bus, which stops exactly in front of the entrance stairs.
There's a beach just crossing the street (going down several steps, of course!).
To sum up, I strongly recommend the place, though not to old or poorly exercised people.
