"Absolutely Superb - wish we could've stayed longer"
Finding the Hotel wasn't easy on a very twisty and narrow cliff hugging road. Your car is parked on the road tight against the cliff and your luggage, thankfully, goes up the cliff in a hoist. The only downside is there is a fairly steep climb up the 120 odd steps to the hotel. However once we'd arrived it was well worth the effort. Our room was on the upper terrace with a communal balcony overlooking the Amalfi Coast - a view to die for. (Directly outside of the room the balcony was sectioned off to give you some privacy). The hotel is run by the family who are incredibly welcoming and can't do enough for you. We arrived about 1930 and were told they served dinner every second night and we could join them if we wanted to. The menu was a set menu, no meat, about 7 courses with most of the produce coming from the terraces around the hotel. There were 8 other guests and we all sat together round the one table - what a brilliant night we had and what a way to learn about the area. The family recommended a restaurant for the second night. A car was sent to pick us up and brought us back afterwards - the meal was fantastic. Next night another "shared" meal with 14 round the table - we provided a bottle of malt just to round off another perfect night. Breakfast on the lower terrace overlooking the coast was quite stunning. A "must visit" for anyone visiting the Amalfi Coast. This is one place we would definitely recommend to everyone and hope for a return visit. Thanks
The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a small but clean room with a great view and tiny balcony. Delicious breakfast buffet. Great restaurants down the block and can walk down to the beach and shopping.
"Perfect location. Close to all attractions - beach"
Spent 6 days there. First day used limo car with driver (Euro40-00/hr x 7 hrs) to visit Pompei, Ravello and Amalfi coast. Second day hired a 18ft power boat from beach kiosk to tour Capri and Amalfi coast by sea (Euro280-00 for whole day - all costs). Third day shopped around Positano - recommend Idillio for men and ladies summer clothes. Fourth day lay around on beautiful beach - crystal clear water. Fifth day - same as fourth day. Sixth day - beach in morning and long walk in afternoon - fantastic. All amenities brilliant - if any nit pick, Wi-Fi could be better but was sufficient to keep in touch with business in Australia.

We were extremely pleased with everything about this hotel. The managers (Giuseppina and Francesca?) were warm, gracious and welcoming throughout our stay. The room was nicely decorated, clean and surprisingly large. The breakfast, on the veranda includes great view of Positano, and was delightful. Definitely recommended.
Stayed just for two nights but will stay longer next time. Had room on 3rd floor in attic but was a lovely room with balcony. Staff we're extremely helpful and friendly. They have their own restaurant and food was lovely. Amazing eating breakfast, lunch or dinner outside hotel with views over Positano. Bit of a walk from beach but the walk down is worth it for taking photos and you can catch local bus back up if don't want to walk, stop right outside hotel.
Yes there are stairs to reach the hotel but its well worth it once you arrival to the view. Maryse was so welcoming and have us a beer for our efforts!! She even upgraded our room which was lovely to a bigger suite with a balcony. Breakfast was enjoyable on the terrace and it was a short 1 min walk to the beach or 5 mins round to the main town of positano. Very enjoyable and relaxing stay!! Thanks maryse
