We had a very nice stay in the hotel from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the lovely receptionist was also our bell woman and helped us with all our needs. Nice personality and gave us good info about the local area. When walking into our room (30) the windows open out to a balcony with the most amazing view, romantic and awe inspiring. Not many places in the world can compete with that view of the sea and the town. All the mod-cons such as excellent wifi and air con (although I have to say the aircon wasn't working in the room at the time), Sky TV (although very limited with the channels). Good size bath and rain shower, Bidet.
November is the beginning of the quiet season, so the town and the hotel is very quiet, very limited service when it came to food and drink, the bar was open and served by the receptionist. The restaurant was closed for the winter months so you will need to eat out. The is a nice breakfast buffet which was included in the price.
This Hotel is at the top of the hill and you can catch a local bus which will take you down to the town ( you have to walk a little way more from the bus stop to get to the beach). You can also walk down an abundance of stairs but walking back up is not for the faint hearted, the same bus will take you back up. You can get a discounted ticket for the bus from the local shops or you can just buy a ticket on the bus, its a couple of euro's, so it won't break the bank either way.
We debated about renting a villa higher up the town but, decided to go with the Covo. Boy, are we glad we did! The Covo has the best location in Positano for getting around combined with an amazing view. The hotel is classically Mediterranean and the food is excellent (best pizza we had in Italy).
