The location of the hotel is unrivalled with spectacular views of Positano and for this reason alone we would definitely return. Whilst it is a couple of miles (not a safe walk) from the centre of Positano, this is not an issue due to the regular and efficient courtesy bus. We found the hotel very good and all of the staff were friendly and helpful (particularly, when I required a doctor during our stay). The rooms are not really 5 star standard with quite basic decor and furnishings and bathroom fittings in need of updating. That said, we found the beds comfortable and the room was very clean and well attended. The food in the restaurant was excellent but unfortunately the menu did not change during our five day stay and by day four we were tired of this and elected to eat in town at additional expense. On the downside the pool area is cramped and a little gaudy. The funicular to the beach side terrace is good fun and the terrace itself is beautiful and spacious but beware of eating at the terrace cafe as the prices are extortionate and the food poor - £25 for a Caesar Salad which consisted of lettuce, stale bread and dressing only! Overall, these minor imperfections did not spoil our stay and there are far more positives than negatives about the hotel. For the view alone you would not be disappointed.
