We stayed at the Eden Roc one week before they closed for the season but you would never have known it. The service was simply AMAZING. All of the staff from the front desk to housekeeping was delighted to serve you. The breakfast server, Tony, was great. Every day he made you feel like you were at home and remembered your beverage preferences for each day. My wife and I were staying for our anniversary and Tony already knew who we were and our occasion on our first morning. He even provided us a special tart each morning to help us celebrate. Grazie Tony! Our stay at the Eden Roc was sent over the top by our OUTSTANDING evening server Carlo. Carlo delivered our room service the first night and set up a lovely candle light dinner on our patio for us. The next day we were surprised to find that Carlo was our server in the restaurant as well. We did not stop talking about Carlo for our entire trip. His service was impeccable but what really set him apart was his intentional effort to get to know us and help to ensure that our vacation was perfect. We asked him questions about the local busses and sights and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. We never had the opportunity to meet the chef but the food at every meal was unparalleled. It became the bar by which we measured all our other meals in Rome, Florence, and Venice and we never found its equal! It is because of this memorable service and the beauty of the property that we will make every effort to return!
We stayed here 2 nights during off season for our honeymoon. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a large terrace overlooking Positano - it was amazing!!!! Room was clean and comfortable, it wasn't very big though and a ceiling fan would have been nice as room got a little stuffy. Shower was tight but had great water pressure. The only thing that didn't work out for us as planned was the room rate we purchased from expedia included a "breakfast buffet". Once at the hotel they charged us 12 Euro per person per day for breakfast as expedia did not have the correct specifics on our room reservation requirements. This wasn't the first mistake expedia made either; the other hotel we booked a "balcony garden room" only to arrive and find that these rooms do not exist at the hotel. The hotel staff was nice and explained that sometimes there is a translation error from Italian to English, I get it but I also want to get what I expect I am paying for...
Lovely hotel with beautiful view and a balcony to sit on. Local bus stop right outside the door. Only a few streets walk up to the top for SITA bus. Breakfast was lovely sitting outside overlooking the coastline. Would highly recommend this hotel. My daughter had her 13th birthday while visiting and surprised her with a beautiful chocolate cake.
We stayed at the adjacent villa for three nights in early October. It really is gem of a place, a small heaven of yours secluded right at the heart of Positano's busy walkway to the beach.
The villa has two separate bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large living room, kitchen, a third bathroom with a washing machine, and a walk-in closet. It was plenty of space for two couples and my twelve-year old daughter. The main bedroom on the garden side has a jakuzzi as well.
Once you open the gate, the size of the well-manicured garden makes you go wow. The view is amazing. One one side, you have the dome of the church and the bell tower. On the other sides, you have the breath-taking views of Positano hills. You cannot imagine how many people tried to sneak into the garden for a photo opportunity every time we opened the gate to the street.
Hotel staff was friendly and made some good recommendations about places to eat, visit etc.
Two small issues to note. First there were a lot of ants, coming from the garden. Second, bathrooms had a heavy smell so we had to leave the windows open even during the day.
Overall I would certainly recommend this place especially if you are travelling with the family.

Each apartment comes with a beautiful view and the communal area has some of the best. The place itself is super easy to find (a huge plus in Positano) with much of what you'll need a short walk away. The biggest plus about this place is the staff, especially Dario - he was incredibly helpful during our stay! Thanks heaps!! If one thing could be improved - stronger wifi so it can reach the rooms. Currently only available in the communal areas but with that great view you don't mind.

Very nice rooms with a great balcony. The food was great and the service was usually with a smile. Extensive wine list. The location was great, very close to the city centre and beach, however the higher up the hill you stay, the better the view.
