We stayed at Villa dei Fisici in June, and we had a wonderful time. The Villa is situated up a hill, but Franco met us at the bottom to take up our bags for us. The walk was about 5 minutes uphill, but it wasn't super steep. Once we arrived at the Villa, check-in was fast and easy. Franco showed us to our rooms, which had a lovely terrace right outside. The view from the Villa was absolutely stunning. Being higher above the town really gives you an amazing view, so in my opinion the walk up the hill was definitely worth it. The rooms were extremely clean and a good size.
Franco was absolutely amazing! Between making the most amazing breakfasts (each day there was a different delicious treat), to giving out great restaurant recommendations and reservations, to making sure we had everything we needed to enjoy a lovely dinner by the pool, I don't know when the man sleeps! He even came out with some limoncello for us after dinner. He made sure that we had an amazing experience and will return again next time we're in Positano.
I'm not sure what others were referring to when they said that the property was run down--I didn't notice that. However, I did notice the amazing views and fabulous service :)
