First a lesson learned - I had asked how close the bus stop was to the hotel and was told it very close, about 200 metres. What I had assumed was that there was only one bus stop in Positano - there isn't so we ended up getting out at the second stop which is about as far away down... More

Our stay here was full of great views. From every well decorated area including the pool, the view of the ocean and town were spectacular. It is within walking distance of Positano, but thankfully they also have a shuttle! The rooms were lovely, clean and well appointed. Enjoy!!

We were assigned a room that is not located in the main building of the hotel but in an annex that it has. Our room had a balcony and therefore, we had beautiful view of... More

We traveled September 22 - 28. This hotel is EVERYTHING it looks in the pictures (and more). From check in to check out we could not have asked for more.
