Don't get me wrong, this is an outstanding property both visually and because of its amenities and location but...there certainly are a few drawbacks. The staff with one exception was great. We had more than one encounter with a shockingly surly middle aged woman who ruled the front desk. Most requests (standard questions about touring/ transportation etc.) elicited a response that made you want to either shrink away or pull her across the desk WWF style. Anyhow, we chalked it up to tenure and then steered well clear of needing her "services". As for everyone else.. charming, friendly, and delightful. One of the Bartenders (a gentleman) even made us a CD of the exceptional music he was playing one night at the Champagne Bar. All of the Staff we spoke with were friendly and happily offered their tips about the area. We found a charming driver through the Hotel (Positano Car Service/"Michael") and he took us everywhere we wanted to go, helped us select restaurants in Naples etc. as well as shared his knowledge and love of the area. The --Hotel--food is wonderful and the Breakfast choices were abundant. The Breakfast Terrace which becomes the Dinner Terrace adjacent to the lemon tree and candle decked Dining Room provided an outstanding view of the coast. At night this same vantage point twinkled with the village below and the Dining Room filled with I don't know how many hundreds of candles took my breath away. The Pool is gorgeous and very recognizable but a little tight at full occupancy. The rooms are pretty but small as are the fairly standard bathrooms. The Hotel is in a great location although having to return there after a meal especially dinner near the water is a rough uphill trek. It's a must see must do but on all other trips to Positano we have stayed elsewhere and found wonderful experiences, much better appointed and larger rooms, and at a signifcantly lower price. Even though the view is killer and we enjoyed our time there I think once is enough...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Sirenuse is a charming family owned hotel located in the heart of Positano. Opened in 1951 by the Sersale family who converted their summer house into a hotel with 12 rooms. The hotel has grown since then with the acquisitions of two neighboring houses to 59 rooms and suites. Le Sirenuse today is still run and managed by the Sersale family who ensure the same atmosphere of warmth and intimacy remain, while breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the village of Positano make this an unforgettable place to spend a holiday. ... more less
