Rosita and Romeo are exceptional. They are truly the kindest people I have ever met at a hotel. They will make your hotel stay memorable, enjoyable and unforgettable. Their service is what makes this hotel stand out from many others. We had room #212 and it was basic, had simple furnishings, was clean, big balcony and an amazing view. This hotel does not claim to be luxury and it definitely isn't. But you may have higher expectations of the rooms based off of the reviews like I did! I think satisfaction also depends on which room you stay in. I peeked into a few of the rooms during our stay and some are tiny and others much nicer even though the price differential is minimal. Our room was not available all 6 nights and we stayed in the Annex our first night. I was not satisfied with that room at all - and if I had to stay in that type of room for 6 nights I probably would have checked out early. I would not recommend the Annex if that was the only room available for your stay.
Rosita uses Pepe's Scooter exclusively for rentals. The first day we had an AMAZING day touring the coast. It was honestly one of the best days of my life - it was so fun and beautiful. Unfortunately, we got into an accident the second day when we lost control of the bike on a one way, hair pin turn in Ravello from a divet in the road. We crashed into a wall and were both thrown off of the bike. We walked away with a few scratches and bruises but were alive thank god! We broke the front light and dented the fender. We assumed we would have to pay the insurance deductible. The owner was not sure "how it works" and would let us know the next day. Kind of scary if you are running a business. The next day he handed us a piece of paper that his wife typed up, not an actual estimate from a mechanic and told us the charge was over $1000 US to replace the light and fender. We were shocked at the price, paid $850 and figured we would discuss with Rosita as well as American Express. I have the AMEX Platinum card and apparently they do not insure Italy car rentals or scooters in general! Good to know! Rosita was appalled that Pepe charged us so much based off of all the business she gives his store exclusively and she told us not to pay. She called him, he said he would suspend the charge (which of course he didn't). Here we are back in the states and there is nothing anyone can do now, including Rosita. Accidents do happen, make sure you have insurance or that the business you are renting from does - otherwise you will be paying a lot of money.
Obviously, above is not a reflection of Rosita and her hotel. And I am not one to complain about my personal travel problems but I think the situation above is worth mentioning in a forum such as this since it was a vendor that Albergo Miramare uses. Enjoy Positano, it rates as one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited.
