“Paradise in Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2010

Positano has to be one of the prettiest resorts along the Amalfi Coast, and its beauty is more than skin deep. Similarly Albergo Punta Regina must surely be the best hotel in Positano. From the moment we arrived by car, we were taken into the welcoming ambiance of this hotel. Our car was parked for us in the spacious garage and our luggage brought to the room. The hotel is exquisite in its taste and spaciousness. The front door glides open automatically and we were presented with a very large and very classy reception area with silver candelabra and deep white sofas. Rather than ostentatious, these touches of class contributed to the feeling that were had entered into an oasis of peace and tranquility.
I had booked our room quite late - no more than a couple of months prior to our arrival. I had wanted a terrace, but there were none available. We booked a superior deluxe room on the third floor with a balcony. I was certainly not disappointed. It was really immense and so beautifully appointed in calming white and magnolia, with touches of green. The bathroom was not overly large, but again so beautiful and well designed. Everywhere there were gorgeous tiles typical of this area of Italy. The balcony had a table and 2 chairs and a perfect view of the town below and the sea, as well as being surrounded with colourful Mediterranean flowering plants.
On the 4th floor there is a panoramic terrace. When we arrived and had unpacked and freshened up, we went upstairs where in the evening cocktails are served. It is a really beautiful terrace overflowing with tropical plants and flowers (as was our balcony and all the terraces below). In the morning breakfast is served here too, and what a scrumptious breakfast this is. Fresh seasonal fruit, Italian savoury and sweet pastries, cereals, eggs, sausages, and the list goes on. Choose between a variety of excellent coffees (cappuccino, americano, latte, espresso lungo) and teas.
As for the location, the hotel is mid-way up the main street in Positano, so about 15 to 20 minutes walk down to the main square and the beach, depending upon your level of fitness (My mum is 81 with a pacemaker and a heart condition and had no problem). There are so many beaches to choose from. Our favourite was the Scogliera which is on the rocks at the end of the large main beach, and Il Fornillo which can be reached by 2 lifts from the Hotel Vittoria, close to Punta Regina. We loved walking up and down the main street looking at the many fashionista shops, buying some gorgeous and unique pieces of clothing manufactured in Positano, which specializes in linen. (Avoid the cheap imitations manufactured in India for 10 Euros). We felt that this was a great way to work off all those calories we consumed in the great restaurants in Positano - Next 2, Il Capitano, La Gavitella, Palazzo di Mulini and Il San Pietro. Boats and buses were the way we mostly got around, but at the end of the day there was nothing better to return to Punta Regina and our glass of Berlucchi on the panoramic terrace.
OK - so far so good - perfect rooms, views, location, breakfasts, cocktails. Despite all that, what really makes this hotel paradise are the lovely people who are dedicated to making their guests feel so very welcome and ensure that their stay is simply perfect. We stayed for 14 nights, which is my way of having a complete rest, after a long hard year.
I could have cried when we left as it felt as if we were leaving our best friends behind - Giuseppina and Francesca on the front desk, and Gianluigi, Francesco and Alessandro who made our breakfasts and cocktails so enjoyable. The best kept secret is the mine of information Gianluigi is on what to do, where to go and how to get there. He is a walking, talking and very charming tourist guide, who can recommend the most intimate beaches or a hike up the Trail of the Gods – telling you which bus to take and drawing you a map. The ladies on the front desk were fabulous at getting us prime tables at the best restaurants, often with a pick-up service. These lovely people at Punta Regina seem to know everyone, and are meticulous in ensuring we received the best treatment everywhere we went. I don’t think it does them justice to call them staff – they so obviously love their work, and enjoy their guests. And if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of Gianluigi’s elegant wife and his cute children Nicolo (4) and Luca (8 months).
Enough said – we intend to return next year.

My wife and myself stayed last week for 6 days .Room was very spacious , very clean and a nice garden balcony .But the real "jem" was the very warm friendly and very efficient staff. Nothing was too much for them to organise, everything from a beach reservation to a fantastic meal in the mountain village Montepertuso.So many thanks to Giuseppina,Frauasce,Alessantro,Gianluigi and Fraucesco for making our stay such a pleasure .I would have no doubts at all in recommending this very fine hotel.

We stayed at Punta Regina for 7 days on our honeymoon. The Hotel is perfect in every aspect! The rooms are very spacious. Our room, 33, had a large closet in the entry, a room with a dresser and plenty of room for suitcases which did not clutter or block traffic, a queen size comfortable bed, a full sofa and TV and a full bathroom with a balcony with a Jacuzzi tub! Plenty of room! The staff makes you feel like family from the moment you step into the lobby. Francesca and Guisseppina run the show and are GREAT! John Luiggi and Francesco are always available to assist in any way. I will never stay any other place when we return to Positano. Best Restraunt was "Next 2" and on Tuesday nights eat at "La Tagliatta" up the hill above Positano (Lotsa fun with singing and dancing).

Nice hotel. Very clean. This hotel prides itself on cleanliness. In fact, the staff was in our room three times a day to clean (while we were out). It was a little weird at first but that's typical of the small hotels in that area. The owners take pride in their hotel.

Nice breakfast on a great rooftop terrace. Incredible views.

The highlight for us was a staffer named GianLuigi. He was super helpful and kind, making us feel very welcome.

The only downside to the hotel was our view/terrace. It was our honeymoon, which we specified, and we were given a room with a view of the street - no actual balcony or view. We told the owner this who said she could upgrade us for a $45 Euro fee per night. We turned it down since it would have added $200 Euros to our cost. I found this a little bit of a turnoff. Honeymoons are special and the hotel wasn't full. What's the big deal upgrading a guest in those circumstances?

Overall, Positano is a beautiful location for the scenery. It was a tad too commercial/snobby for our length of stay. We were there five days. Keep it to three, max. There are a ton of boutiques for shopping, which I do not enjoy doing. Take a boat tour to Capri (which is even more commercial). Getting around via ferry is easy.

My husband and I, along with my brother and his wife stayed here for 4 nights, April 30-May4, 2010. From the moment we walked inside, I knew everything would be fine. Giuseppina gave us a very warm welcome. Our rooms were beautiful We were in Rm 315 and 322, both with terraces with great views. Jon Luigi gave us great tips while we sipped home made mint tea on the terrace overlooking the bay. Breakfast was fabulous and the staff bent over backwards to insure we had good tips for restaurants and day trips. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

This charming hotel provided me the "Positano" experience I had always hoped for. The staff were professional, very helpful and friendly, making my stay incredibly easy and enjoyable. Despite being a solo traveller, the romance and beauty of the amazing views from my terrace were not lost on me - simply stunning! The spacious room was extremely comfortable, clean and quiet. Overall a wonderful place to stay in Positano - can't wait to return to Punta Regina!

We have just returned from Positano having stayed at Punta Regina. We could not fault it. Its a small hotel and the staff are wonderful. Our room had a wonderful terrace overlooking the bay. Breakfast on the roof terrace was amazing. Jean-Luigi, Giusappina and Francesa could not have been more attentive. Great location as some wonderful restaurants on your doorsteps.
