“Perfect position”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My friend and I stayed at Villa La Tartana for 7 days in September. Our room was lovely and clean and fresh, balcony is small but enough room for 2 to sit and just enjoy the beautiful view. The staff were exceptional, very friendly, very knowledgable and very helpful. The breakfast area was also very clean and had a wonderful view. The position of Villa La Tartana is perfect, 2 minutes walk to the beach, the shops start literally from the front door and ferries and buses just a short distance away. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Close to everything you need - beach, shops, transport.

I cannot say enough about our stay at Villa La Tartana, it made our stay amazing. The view from our balcony takes in the most beautiful view of the water. It is small and personal, Alessia and all of the staff went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. I would go back again and again!!!

I enjoyed four wonderful days at Villa La Tartana. Lovely helpful staff, spotlessly clean and spacious room, beautiful view whilst eating breakfast or enjoying a coffee. Tartana is very central to the main hub of Positano. They also recommended excellent places to go and also a restaurant that sent transport to and from Tartana. Highly recommended, would stay again.

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.
