Positano was the first of four cities to visit in Italy for our recent Honeymoon. Beautiful location. The hotel's main entrance is at the top and the rest of the property is built below along the mountainside with access to their private beach. Getting to the beach is an experience with the tram that leads you halfway down and then an elevator built inside the mountain! The rooms are a bit dated but charming and clean. The overall decor of the place is an old world style. As you walk through the property along winding walkways, you can stop and look over to see the lower levels and the beautiful coast. It's breathtaking at every angle. We stayed for 5 nights and had two different rooms after we upgraded. Nothing was wrong with our first room, except our patio was a bit small. Our upgraded room had a much larger bathroom, patio, and closet/dressing room. The beds did seem quite firm but I happen to like it that way so no complaints about that. The breakfast buffet was nice. Who could resist eating breakfast every morning outdoors overlooking the entire side of the mountain and rest of Positano?? We had dinner at the restaurant one night. It was a little more pricy than in town, but the food was great and service excellent - and again sitting on the restaurant's balcony with nighttime views. Overall, ALL of the staff we interacted with were excellent. We spoke often with two people at the front desk. One was a young girl with dark curly hair (cannot remember her name) and the other was a man named Emidio. Both of them were very helpful and friendly. The hotel provided hourly shuttle service into town making it very convenient to get there and back. Out of the four hotels we stayed at across our trip through Italy, Le Agavi was the best. We look forward to coming back!
