On our Amalfi Coast trip we went to Positano for a day and decided to have lunch in the best possible spot for watching the sea. Very beautiful setting both indoor and outdoor. perfect service and delightful meal. Great wine list from local growers. All in all a super lunch.

Amazing stay in room 48! The front desk was amazing - Marco coordinated a private boat ride that far exceeded our expectations! The accommodations were amazing and the breakfast was perfect! Bellisimo! We will be back to explore the other areas along the coast we missed.

This was our third visit to this lovely hotel, and it was amazing as always! The location is the best, and the views are simply beautiful from our balcony, and from the restaurant terrace. Everyone on the staff is always so helpful and friendly, and they go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The food was exceptional as always! I just really can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is simply the best, and we will always stay there on our future visits to Positano. We look forward to returning!

Very nice and clean space, but also very small. The staff, the view and the breakfast all deserve 5 stars, however the bed was not comfortable how most of the reviewers said. I was looking forward for this hotel because everyone said in their reviews that the beds are comfy. We stayed in room 24 and our bed was hard as rock. The room was cool every time we came to the room and it was absolutely perfect, because outside was really really hot and humid. That was a big plus for this hotel. We were surprised that the room was not equipped with phone chargers/ USB chargers for US travelers. They should look into it. At 500 euro a night they could get some phone chargers. Overall it was ok, Positano is beautiful. I would visit again but definitely not in August. It was way too hot and humid.

Room Tip: Don’t rent a car if you are from the States. You won’t be able to drive here. Is very scary....
