“Loved Le Agavi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This hotel was perfect for us for our honeymoon. Each room has it's own balcony facing the sea which is a huge bonus. It is not in the center of town but the shuttle that takes you into town all day and night is just fine. Because it's not in the center of town the veiws are absolutely beautiful. The staff was outstanding here, and the fact that it has a pool AND it's own beach really makes it special in Positano. Others have said the beds are hard, yes but that's not a big deal for the service, views, and fantastic ammenities you get at this hotel.

My room was a suite, so we loved the private terrace with a view to Positano and the sea.
The breakfast is good but not five star.
The hotel parking is excellent as long as it is difficult to find a free parking in Positano.
The minivan service from Hotel-Positano-Hotel is really a good extra.
The hotel is good but not a "real" five stars. I think that there are another five star hotels that you should think about it.

We are regulars at this hotel - an annual visit every September for a long weekend.

Great location and friendly staff. Food at the private beach excellent and a great setting.

Breakfast could do with more variety for the buffet. The bar and terrace benefitted from an excellent, friendly waiter but could do with better lighting and the option of food to encourage more guests to use it - the views are the best in Positano and it could be much busier.

We will be back next year!

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra to ensure you get a room with a decent sized balcony - the views make it wo...

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Le Agavi. The views were fantastic from both our spacious private terrace and the public areas of the hotel. We did not use the beach or pool, though they looked nice enough. The free breakfast was plenty for us and the shuttle into town was easy to use. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only reason I did not give a 5 was because I expected more from the room for the price paid. It was fairly spacious, though a bit boring and the beds were a little hard. Overall I definitely recommend this hotel!

Positive:
fantastic views, nice private beach + beach restaurant, quick room service

Negative:
During our stay of 5 days we changed rooms 2 times (all of them categorized "suites"). In the first room offered to us (#111) it was impossible to stand up straight beside the bed (I am only 189 cm tall), the sleeping area was squeezed under the park deck. We accepted room #403 as an alternative which was better, but had a "locked in" sleeping area with only a very tiny window and a small terrace, where a wall blocked the sea view when lounging.We decided to ask for an alternative next day and got room #114 which tempted us because of a very spacious terrace. However,we found the next morning that the terrace was unusable because of heavy constant noise from the a/c of the the main building.
Changed rooms again and finally got room # 502 which was ok.

I think the general problem with the LE AGAVI is 1.that they have a fairly large share of rooms with heavy setbacks and 2. very obviously tried to squeeze suites into building space that would have otherwise been perfect for a spacious normal room and terrace

Room Tip: Our strong advice if you want to go there: due to a/c noise DON'T accept a room on the upper lev...

This hotel is wonderful! The views and service are amazing. There are some little things one could nitpick here and there, but I would return without a doubt. Le Agavi is great!! Breakfast is very nice, private beach and bar are great, shuttle service to the city center with friendly drivers was wonderful.

We stayed at Le Agavi for 4 nights in September. Staff were helpful, hotel was clean but the decor in rooms is lacking imagination. It looks like rooms one would find in Thailand's Pattaya Beach! No complaints about the views nor the location as it was worth overlooking the mediterranean and positano of an evening. Had we stayed in the Positano town itself, we may not have seen such a night time fantasy of the town coming to light after dark! Also, we thought it may have been too busy in Positano and noise levels may be more extreme in busy times. We opted for views, quiet location and a shuttle that runs ever hour and is efficient. Our one and only complaint is the beds are tooooo hard and the pillows are not much better. This would be the ONLY reason we would consider another hotel when next visiting Positano.
