“Perfect, just perfect for Positano!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 days in Positano & were lucky enough to spend them all at the La Rosa Dei Venti.
Now if you don't like steps & walking then really don't go to Positano - I can't believe that some reviewers on web-sites complain about the steps for a town that is literally built on the side of a cliff - what do they expect, elevators? (it's like going to the North Pole & saying "Yeah it's nice, but really there is just too much snow")
This is a beautiful B&B run by a family- it isn't a Hotel, so don't expect all the "Bells & Whistles" that you get with one. What you get are lovely rooms - we stayed in the Grecale, which has fantastic sea views from the balcony. If you can have this room then believe me you won't be disappointed. There is a lovely large bed, a great bathroom with shower, SKY TV, a fridge & coffee making facilities. We didn't meet Mario, but both Alexandro & Vicenzo on the desk were very helpful & friendly - just ask them if you need anything & they will do their best to help. (Alexandro met us when the taxi dropped us off & carried one of our cases down the steps & did the same back up to a waiting taxi when we left...nothing was too much trouble.)
As many people have already mentioned, breakfast is served in your room - you leave a card on your door handle at night indicating what you would like from the options available & the time you would like it. Don't expect "100 options" though - this isn't a massive hotel complex & it's worth remembering that Italians do not eat a large breakfast, it is traditionally only a coffee & croissant. (So if you want Omelettes an English fry-up, or cheese/ham/beans with toast then you should look elsewhere!!)
The Rosa Dei Venti is perfectly placed for restaurants - just turn left from the door & there are many leading down into the town - Il Capitano is opposite the Pharmacy and is well worth a visit for the lovely food & views from the terrace - it is also a bit away from the busy road. Turning right from the door will lead you down the many many steps to Forniillo beach. This is the quieter of the main ones and €8 each a day will get you a sun lounger, a parasol & the use of the shower/toilet facilities etc. The guys at "Ferdinandos" are very friendly - these are the Aussie Green/Gold loungers - and their bar serves the best Panini's in town...in fact in any town!! (If you don't fancy the steps back up afterwards then follow the path around the beach - past Lo Guarracino which is another restaurant well worth a visit - and this will take you back through Positano town & the walk won't seem so tiring....it is, but it just won't seem it! Alternatively Ferdinandos do offer a little water taxi service back to the main beach area - but this is cheating really!)
In the main pedestrian part of town look out for La Zagara - the cakes are really something else, must try one..
Positano is a beautiful place to visit - although Sorrento is perhaps the better option for a longer stay. Having said that there are always boat trips & walks to keep you occupied.and fit. You will never get tired of the views & Italian people are just so friendly.
Would we return to Positano...oh yes definitely. And where would we stay?....without doubt La Rosa Dei Venti - every moment we spent there was perfecto!!

Room Tip: Ask for the Grecale - can't fail to love this one, beautiful sea view from the balcony

I stayed here with my partner in the room "Tramontana" for two nights. We arrived early and were immediately greeted by an extremely professional, friendly and helpful receptionist - Vincenzo. He helped us find the parking - EUR 20 per day - very near to the hotel. The room balcony has beautiful views overlooking the sea (Spiagga del Fornillo direction). The rooms were very spacious - with a sofa - and very comfortable, clean. You have to fill out a card for breakfast and it always arrived on time to eat on the room balcony - the food very tasty. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Tramontana was excellent.

We stayed here for three nights during a 4 week trip to Italy. It was Paradise found- ocean views, impeccable service, great location, beautiful rooms and lovely staff.

The beach is a short (albeit steep) walk away, the town is 5 minutes walk downhill. There is a stop for the internal Positano bus near the property, but it is really not necessary if you are of average agility.

This is a family fun business and the love and care for the property was felt during every aspect of our stay. The breakfast served each morning on the balcony was a highlight, our room was kept beautifully clean; the guys at reception were always willing to help with a smile, for anything we desired.

We made use of the boat offered by La Rosa Dei Venti- and it was the best holiday experience we've ever had. Stefano took us cruising on the coast from Amalfi to Capri, stopping for swimming and eating along the way. He brought Champagne, fresh fruit and biscuits and he was lovely company. The cost of this was great value for money compared to other quotes we received around Positano.

We will definitely come back and stay at this hotel- it was a 5 star experience.

Room Tip: Choose a full sea view room.

We stayed 3 nights of a 15 night trip all over Italy. It was our favorite place we stayed.
The Staff was VERY nice. The location was quiet, 2 blocks of walking only path from the main street (away from car noise). On the way to the local's beach. The free breakfast was GREAT, you placed your order on a card and hung it on your doorknob at night and in the morning the staff brought exactly what you ordered to the room at the time you requested.
Breakfast on the Balcony overlooking the Med every morning was wonderful. The shower was big and hot w/ good water pressure. The bed was king sized and comfortable. The mini bar was cheap! WE ordered the local wine for 10 Euros per bottle to our room. The only slight issue was that the wifi was often un-stable.

we will stay here again for our next anniversary!

Nice B&B, 10min walking distance fron the center of Positano, offering nice views and places to eat around the corner. Spacious room, in-room breakfast which can be enjoyed on the small balcony. Very quiet.

We chose this Hotel for our Honeymoon - and it was perfect. Mario arranged for a car to collect us from Naples Airport and we were then met on arrival with help to carry bags. The room was spotless - and kept that way.The breakfasts on the balcony - so romantic.Walking down to Positano from the Hotel was beautiful; if you visit Furnillo beach then climb the steps back to the Hotel - there are 400. Situated in a quiet part of the town,near good restauarants;very helpful owners. Fantastic.

The B&B is an historical building offering large rooms with very high ceiling, most of them with a wonderful terrace with an unbelievable view on the sea. Beds are confortable and toilettes are large and functional.

Breakfast is served in the room (as they do not have a space dedicated to breakfast) which helps building up on the romantic atmosphere of the place.

The B&B is located very close to a couple of parkings outside and up from the center of Positano that you can reach with an easy and relaxed walk down. To come back you can either slowly walk up-hill for 15-20 minutes, or use the navette available from the center.

Owners are really friendly and nice and they provide useful tips for visiting the region.

If you want to visit this superb region, you should defenitily consider La Rosa dei Venti!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view on the sea - most of them have it
