“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I almost dont want to write this review for the fear of that this place will be sold out for years to come. Its really an amazing property, with great people, that truly care about the quality of your stay.

We spent 11 days at this property and loved every minute of it. The hotel is located very close to the beach and since Positano has a lot of steps, being close to the beach, without the burden of climbing, was very important to us. The only draw back about being close to the beach is that it tends to get somewhat loud at night and in the morning (no sleeping with the windows open). But hearing the bustle of Positano is part of the experience and one can always close the windows. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is professional and very accommodating.

We cant wait to be back. Thank you La Tartana.

My wife and I spent one fantastic week in May 2012 at Villa La Tartana. The spotless room had a great view of the aqua blue Mediterranean. The Villa is located within easy walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. We used the Villa to sight see in Positano and the surrounding areas of Sorrento, Amalfi, Capri, Pompeii and Paestum. The staff, Carmela, Alessia, Fabrizio, at the Villa were always friendly and willing to offer suggestions of what to see and do. We have recommended the Villa to our friends. One suggestion, take small pieces of luggage that will be easy to handle on the cobblestone walkways and stairs.

Room Tip: We stayed in the corner room on the second floor with great views of the beach and sea.

Would stay here again if I ever revisited Positano. It's small, cute and the rooms are very spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. Location is fantastic as you are steps away from the beach - no need to walk up and down all day. Also every close to great food, the club Music on the Rocks and lots of little shops.

This small hotel was exactly what we were looking for. In the heart of Positano, Villa La Tartana is a very short walk through charming streets to the beach. It was clean and the customer service was fantastic. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely boutique hotel!! From our check-in with sweet Camilla, to our seaside room, everything was perfect. Positano is a predominately pedestrian town. We parked our car once, and did not see it again for 3 days. The Villa La Tartana is a short walk from the closest garage, and your luggage is transported by porters in a small electric cart. When we entered our charming room, we faced the water, a magnificent old church, and one of the most amazing views that I have ever seen. Our room was well appointed, with lots of storage space, a flat screen TV, and plenty of light. There is wi-fi in the lobby if you are interested. The hotel is a half-block walk (downhill) to the beach, and the street, leading to the hotel, is lined with lovely stores and restaurants. The staff was so kind and helpful, and recommended some outstanding restaurants (Bucco de Bacco and Cafe de Positano). They also provide a nice continental breakfast in the morning. I HIGHLY recommend this charming hotel in the magical town of Positano!!

We are just checking out of this lovely little villa in positano. It has been wonderful. We stayed in room 26. It has magical views of the beach and town and the best part is no steps from here to main square! The staff have been very accommodating. On our first night there was an error in our booking and they had no rooms, but the staff just found us a bed in the hotel next door! When we did finally get here the next day, they had arranged transfer of our luggage and when they opened the French doors to show us the view we thought we had died and gone to heaven. Highly recommend.

We stayed in June 2012 and had a double seaview room number 26, which is just as you come up the stairs on first level.

As we walked in the room it was just incredible, the views are amazing and the room was spotless, everything looked perfect. There was a closet to hang you clothes and plenty of drawers to put things away. Bathroom was a bit on the small side but that seems to be common in Italy but we managed fine with the space we had.

Air conditioner worked fantastic and was on when we got in the room so it was nice and cool, the balcony was great had a small round table and 2 chairs and 2 lounge chairs to relax in.

Breakfast was good but mainly croissants and bread rolls, french toast and lots of spreads to go with it but we ended up buying some cereal and fruit just to change it up. Coffee was made to order and was great.

Check in and check out were quick and simple,Carmella was great and all staff were very friendly.
Positano is an amazing place and you would be hard pressed to find a more suitable accommodation, it is situated close to the beach and everything is easy to get to from the ferry dock to shops and restaurants, if we were to return I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd level has amazing views. Our friends had room 28 and their bathroom was slightly larger a...
