We booked the Margherita well in advance of our honeymoon in Italy. I had emailed to say it was our honeymoon, and received excellent communication from Suela regarding the 'special' room she had reserved for us at no extra cost. We had already stayed 3 nights in Rome and 5 nights in Tuscany, and we arrived here late and exhausted after a 14-hour travel day, to be staying for six nights in total. We were welcomed with a cold beer on the house and shown to our room. The room was fantastic - private sun terrace with a spectacular view and a jacuzzi 'wet room' with ambiance lighting. The pool was only a few paces away too. As it was late and we were exhausted and hot, I took a brief shower, which only stayed hot for a minute or two before turning cold. I thought no more about it as we went for dinner on the rooftop terrace.
We spent several mornings bathing on our terrace which was superb as we could nip in the pool any time we got too hot.
Suela has a fantastic presence in the hotel and is full of good and useful advice. And the free bus down to town and the beach is a great service.
The view is superb, the staff are nice and breakfast has a very good selection, with eggs cooked to order.
Now the tiny disappointments.....as mentioned, the shower didn't stay hot for long....as we had another shower in the 'wet room' I attempted to use this, but it was broken. The jacuzzi bath also produced cold-ish water, so we only went in it once. On the third morning, I did bring these issues up with the front desk and a plumber spent some time in the room sorting the broken shower, however the water was still cool!
Another small thing - although the food on the rooftop terrace is good and convenient, it is a tad overpriced and service is quite slow.
On our last night, we were able to bring in pizzas from a local takeaway (which was very nice of Suela to let us do, she even got us a candle!) and we ate them on our terrace with a beer from the bar which was a lovely end to our stay here.
Overall, a nice hotel in a good location for both Positano and Amalfi.
