The first impression when you arrive is the spectacular view from Arienza down to the beach and across the bay of Positano. It is located about a 25 minute walk into Positano or you can catch the bus which takes about 10 minutes, the bus stop is located 50m from Maliosa and they run every hour cost 1.80euros. Upon arrival, and due to our tiredness, and lack of knowledge of the local buses, we had a taxi from Positano, it was 20 euros for 10 minutes, taxis are very expensive.
We were greeted by Felice, yes a character, but a host who will do anything for you. We didnt have any issues with him at all. During our 3 night break here, many of the locals knew him and all said how amusing he can be. By some of the unique and expressive garden furniture, you can tell that Felice has an interesting sense of dry humour, you will either love him or you wont; we did.
Our room was 8, close to the breakfast terrace which from 7.30 -9.30 can be noisy. The room is typically Italian, it has everything you would need and is immaculately clean. Free Wi-Fi, air con, large and comfy bed, good shower and en suite. However the main positive was the view lying in bed and looking at the uninterrupted view of the sea, yes this was "The Sea View". I cannot comment on the other rooms.
Breakfast was cold buffet, with bread, toast, eggs, preserves, cereals and fruit. A very good selection.
Felice organised our first night meal at La Taverne Lione, go there, it will not disappoint.
