After reading a couple of the reviews I was a little worried about staying slightly out of town but our stay at Le Agavi Hotel in Positano was much more than expected. Firstly Positano itself, what a magnificent venue for a week to relax and take in the views, soak up the sun, eat great food and mix with some really friendly people. An absolute must destination on your "to do" list. Our room at the hotel was simple yet in old world charm. Yeah sure it could be updated but you know what - this is Positano and personally wouldn't change it. Views were picture postcard breathtaking from our balcony so a couple of nights we just bought some cheese, salami and wine and soaked up the view - beautiful. Beds, comfy, shower fine however you do need to climb into the bath. Breakfast is basic but plentiful - cereals, breads, yoghurts and bacon and scrambled eggs - what else do you want? Oh and the cappucinos were great and on tap. Agree with some of the other comments re the hotel restaurant. Seemed a bit pricey to me and why wouldn't you just go into town and try the awesome food (relatively inexpensive) restaurants? The inclinator down to the private beach makes life very easy and the beach (while not really a beach, but a newly created balcony with a wharf to jump into the cool mediterranean) is beautiful. We got addicted to Campari Spritz all over Italy so that was the order of the day down there. Overall service was fantastic and the team really look after us. The shuttle into Postiano takes around 5 minutes and goes pretty much every hour - too easy. Would highly recommend this hotel and when we return this will be where we stay. Oh, by the way do the "Discover Positano" walking tour with Christina (see separate post) on your second day - awesome.
