“Outstanding view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

A great place to stay with stunning view from our terraced room! Friendly, helpful staff; lovely vaulted ceiling room. Price included breakfast on our terrace each morning. Restaurants and shopping all around. No parking on premises, but parking garage attendants work with hotel guests.

Room Tip: Terraced room with ocean view. No elevator but wasn't a real problem for us.

As said by other reviews, the intimate hotel has amazing views, great service, and comes at a great discount to other options in Positano. As first time visitors, we couldn't have been more pleased with the choice. Room 36 was perfect for us with a king bed (sometimes a rarity in Europe) as well as an amazing terrace. Breakfast was a treat at the time we designated every morning. As others said, our bathroom was small--but for us just fine and functional. If important to you ask them for their rooms that have a larger bath. Location was perfectly central to an easy walk down to the beach and docks for boat rides around the coast as well as close to the bus stop.

Linda is a superstar! All of the hosts at the front desk were terrific but Linda went above and beyond with plans for dinner, sightseeing and drivers. She is enthusiastic, loves her town, and truly wants to know how your experience was so she can stay current and ensure you are having the trip of a lifetime. Her reservations made our views fantastic every night.

Highlights we'd recommend--full reviews separately:
--Boat to Amalfi and Sorrento
--Private Day Tours--very flexible to your itinerary (For us: Frantoio Gargiulo olive oil, Cantina del Vesuvio for wine tasting and lunch, and Ravello for a relaxing tour)
--Café Positano--Amazing terrace views and great food
--Chez Black--Saw Denzel Washington at lunch--one of his frequent spots at the beach
--Le Tre Sorelle--Great food and service also at the beach
--Il Ritrovo--Quaint small and atop the hills above Positano. Non tourist real small town.
--Buca di Bacco cooking class--great fun and actually great teaching--tips and tricks that work.

Room Tip: Views are amazing from the terrace--request a higher floor.

Villa Rosa is situated in a perfect spot in Positano, directly opposite Le Sireneuse Hotel (which is four times the price). We stayed for four nights and could not fault it. Our room was on the top floor (room 32) and it was fabulous with a huge terrace with a stunning view. Breakfast was a highlight, served on our gorgeous sunny terrace at a time of our choosing. The reception staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful with restaurant reservations etc. Positano is a very expensive spot, but Villa Rosa definitely represented good value for money.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor if possible to ensure unbroken view of the bay.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Rosa for an 8 day getaway. The hotel was extremely accommodating with arrangements to get from the airport, book a dinner reservation, find a spa, directions to the Footpath of the Gods, etc. Its extremely clean, the breakfast was timely and delicious as it was served to our door/balcony every morning. My only complaints were that the air conditioning was never fixed. We asked for it to be serviced, which I believe it was...but was never actually fixed. The nights were relatively comfortable so we honestly didn't mind much. If it had been hotter this would have been a bigger deal. Positano is such a magical place and so is Villa Rosa!

Room Tip: ALL rooms have balconies, but some are better than others.

We stayed at Villa Rosa for 6 days in June and had an amazing time in Positano.
The staff at Villa Rosa were the best. Always helpful with information, where to go what restaurants to go to. Maria recommended a tour to Pompeii and it was a fun trip.

The room was amazing with see front views and a breakfast on the balcony was so relaxing.

We will return as its close to everything and with an amazing view and excellent staff.
Thanks again Maria for all your help,

Room Tip: Get a sea view room

A fantastic hotel with friendly staff and wonderful sea views from your terrace. The rooms are spacious and very clean with that limoncello colour scheme that blends with the whole Amalfi Coast vibe. We had 5 wonderful days here and would recommend it to anyone. I did a good review of the hotel last year but somehow only gave it 2 stars in error so this is my attaempt to correct that; sorry Villa Rosa!!

Villa Rosa far exceeded my expectations. We had the family apartment on the top floor (room 39) and we loved it. The location is outstanding, and the view breathtaking. The apartment is made up of a large master bedroom and an alcove bedroom that is quite separate to the main bedroom plus 2 bathrooms and a huge terrace. It was perfect for our needs.
Each morning I watched the sun rise while sitting on our wonderful terrace marvelling at the amazing view.
Breakfast was served on the balcony each morning. Juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cereal and a basket of baked goods. We ordered a fruit bowl on our first morning which actually lasted us three days, it was so large. The breakfast was simple but it was so nice to have a relaxed breakfast enjoying the view.
The staff at Villa Rosa were always available at the front desk and extremely friendly and helpful.
To put it simply, we loved Positano and Villa Rosa and wish we were still there.

Room Tip: The apartment, room 39, on the 4th floor is wonderful for a family of 4.
