“Book this Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

My partner and I stayed at the Royal Prisco hotel for my birthday. We booked after reading other reviews posted here and so happy we did. The hotel was in a great location, taking only 10 min to walk down to the beachfront. We stayed in room 2 and had an amazing view of Positano from our balcony. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff were also very helpful, making us breakfast at 5.30am as we had to checkout early.

My wife and I stayed at Royal Prisco for our honeymoon. Our first impression was not great because the decor -- all fake green marble and fake terracotta -- is a pretty kitsch and looks tacky. Other than the price, which is due to the location in overpriced Positano, the decor was really our only complaint.

We choose one of the deluxe rooms that have better views and a larger balcony and this balcony was the highlight of the place. Every evening, after a hard day at the beach, we'd sit looking out over the town and sea, drinking the very affordable Prosecco provided in the mini bar. The room was also pretty large, with a small side room with a sofa.

Michaelangelo, who runs the place, is a real character, and is very helpful with booking restaurants etc. He got us great tables everywhere we wanted to eat and made several other calls on our behalf. Breakfast is good and large, but a little chaotic. The dining room is tiny and Michaelangelo and his sister are sometimes overwhelmed.

If you're set on Positano and don't want to spend 300+ Euros for a room, then Royal Prisco is a good choice. But consider staying elsewhere on the coast where your hotel dollars will go further.

Just back from lovely holiday in beautiful Positano. The Royal Prisco is really excellent and bats above its weight on all fronts.
We enjoyed it so much we're already looking at booking it next year.

Room Tip: Second floor sea views fantastic!

We stayed in Positano for 4 nights and used it as a base for exploring the Amalfi Coast. We also did a day trip to Pompei and Mt Vesuvius. We loved coming back to the Royal Prisco. We had a balcony with a sea view and the surrounding area which was beautiful. It was great having our own space to have lunch or a glass of wine with some privacy. It is probably a five minute walk into the main part of the town (depending on how many shops you go into) so we enjoyed being a bit away from the crowds. We were extremely happy with the help we received from the owners and other staff.They were very flexible. They always made sure we had some breakfast even when we had an early start. They also passed on faxes and information about our transfers as we were being picked up from outside the hotel. We felt welcome and well looked after throughout our stay. I couldn't believe the marble stair case. I thought I had entered a 5 star hotel. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Someone recommended this hotel to us and I would be happy to recommend it to others as we really enjoyed our time here.

Who would have thought you could get such a big and nice room in expensive Positano for such an after all moderate price. But standards are obviously very high in Positano, regardless. The Royal Prisco may be getting a little bit worn around the edges, but it is a beautiful place.
