I stayed at B&B Mamma Rosa for 3 nights in Sept. 2012 and have nothing but great compliments. At first I was worried that the location was a bit too far off from the town center- Mamma Rosa is located in Montepertuso, which is technically like a town next to Positano's main center. However upon arrival and seeing the magnificent view from our room I actually felt a bubble of affection for my boyfriend who made the reservations for this place :-) The 200 steps leading to Mamma Rosa was definitely worth it! (If you're travelling by car, I would advise bringing an overnight bag to carry the stuff you immediately need, and leave the rest in the car)

The host, Melania, was very kind,helpful, and also very good at English. She introduced us to a great restaurant nearby named Il Ritrovo, whose octopus appetizer was so good we went there twice in 3 days. The B&B is very cozy and makes one feel at home, rather than a hostel. The bathroom although not ensuite, is right across the hall from our room and was also very clean with plenty of hot water, which I find important. Melanie only takes two groups of guests at a time (there are 2 rooms & 2 bathrooms), so you can enjoy a quiet stay.

It was simply the best choice for seeing Positano and other nearby towns like Amalfi, Ravello, etc. The town center can be easily arrived by the town bus- for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere I highly recommend Mamma Rosa.

When I arrived at the Montepertuso, Melania, Who are the owner of the B&B Mamma Rosa, greeted with warm heart. Say in one word, Mamma Rosa is not a commercial place, but a true italian place. Every facility in room and bathroom was arranged for the family member. In my point of view, when Melania decorates the house, she does not take into consideration for the tourist in terms of ROI(Return of Investment). She tried to let us know the beauty of italian sculpture, furniture and pottery. B&B Mamma Rosa has good view point to see the positano sea, and near the house there is great restarant , il ritrovo (?) which is famous for the fresh sea food with reasonable price. One thing you need to aware is that you need to climb the 230 steps to reach her house. So you'd better carry not too much of luggage. Thank you

Melania was so kind, helpful and sweet. The room was so nice, bright, clean and big. That unique view and balcony won´t let you wanna leave the room..you can feel the sea and its peace. The private bathroom was beautiful. The breakfast was delicious. Melania is in every detail so the whole place is amazing and with so much style! Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of staying at Mamma Rosa's for 5 nights. The room is beautiful and the views we woke up to every morning were amazing. I really appreciated how clean and spaceous the accommodations were. It was a real treat after travelling through Italy for a month. Breakfast was lovely and you can really tell that Melania is proud of her business. On the down side, it is a difficult climb up to the B and B. There are over 200 steps. I was not bothered by this, but my Mother did find it challenging. Luckily, we got help carrying our luggage up and down. I would stay here again, but if you do have any problems with mobility, be forewarned that it could be an issue.

The room was light, bright and just right for Positano. The view was brilliant and we very much enjoyed sitting on the small balcony in the late afternoon sunshine and having a cold drink. The room came with its own private bathroom and a central kitchen and breakfast room in which Melania provided an excellent European breakfast each morning. We enjoyed sharing our travel adventures with her other guests (she has 2 rooms for rent) Located above the village of Montepurtuso it is a 20 minute ride by bus from central Positano up into the hills behind the town. To our surprise we found that Montepurtuso has some of the best restaurants that were filled each night with the tourists from Positano coming up the mountain.



The BNB is surrounded by tiered farming land where the land owners grow grapes, tomatoes, beans and zucchini.



Melania and Roberto were just fabulous hosts, Melania helped us with our luggage on arrival and when after some very nasty weather on our last day when our ferry was cancelled arranged for us to go with Roberto in his car to Sorrento which saved us from being thoroughly drenched - thanks Roberto!. She also recommended some great local restaurants in Montepurtuso where we ate some very memorable meals.



In short, great host, great location and highly recommended!
