We didn't stay in a hotel room but instead rented a villa on the hotel's facility that is actually owned by a private individual, but you get to enjoy all the hotel amenities. Much cheaper than the hotel rooms and more space. We spent last week there for our 25th anniversary and I'm so glad we did. Our villa (Villa Ines) was very clean, nicely appointed and had 2 bedrooms. The master had plenty of space, great built-in wardrobes and best of all had its own balcony with the most stunning views you could ask for. There is also a 2nd balcony accessed from the living room. The 2nd bedroom has no windows but is comfortable with a queen size bed. You can only rent it through this web site http://www.summerinitaly.com/eng/rent/property0453!italy_.htm. The hotel is just on the edge of the town so it's a good walk if you're inclined, which we were. We actually enjoyed being a bit away from the town center as it forced us to experience all of it, and there's no better way than by foot. We used the bus service to return on a couple of nights. The hotel's breakfast buffet is very expensive, about 30 euro each, and lacks any protein choices. Mainly pastries, cheeeses, breads, fruits, cereals, etc. But what they had was very good - fresh and great tasting. We did it just once, but had the best view of Positano and the coast while dining outside. Better deal is to go into town at any number of café-style restaurants and get an omelet for 10 euro each. Was nice to have parking onsite for our rental car . . . but you do have to pay 25 euro/day for the privilege, but it's not any better in the town. Just know it's the price of visiting the area. Was great to be able to take the car in and out whenever we needed to. Our villa had only one bathroom and it was small. The shower stall is very small, so if you're a really large person you may struggle fitting in. Was just the two of us, but if you had other guests I can see the bathroom situation being a real challenge. Was nice to have a kitchen with fridge as we bought fruits daily for snacking at the villa. Speaking of which, some of the best and cheapest fruits in town are at the daily fruit stand just outside the hotel. We spent all our time in town and sightseeing the neighboring towns along the coast, so we only used the villa/hotel facility to sleep in. But it was great waking up each day to that view. Just puts you in a great mood to start each day. Having experienced the town thoroughly now, we'd stay here again when we go back one day in the not-too-distant future.
