All the pictures you see of hotel Posa Posa become your reality upon check-in, no risk of the photos you see being a disappointing let down as can easily be the case when looking and booking online.
The staff spoke English very well and were all very friendly. We booked a quad room with balcony that had a great view over Positano to the sea. The room was very clean with a large bathroom. It was tastefully decorated, quiet, and airconditioned. It was also roomy considering we had four adults in it. There is also a lift.
There was free wireless internet but not in the room, you had to go to one of the common areas.
Breakfast was included in our room price and was a buffet style with cereal, bread/pastries, cheeses, cold meats, yogurts, juices and fresh fruit. The coffee however was not as good as you can get at a local bar. Overall though, an excellent breakfast.
The hotel is located up the hill but not at the very top. Walking to the shopping and beach area takes about 20-25 minutes; but it is all downhill and an interesting walk through residential areas and little alleyways etc. The walk back takes longer as it is uphill however stopping to take photos and admiring the view helps break up the journey.
There are plenty of restaurants only a couple of minutes walk down the hill; all great food and service. We also one night at the terrace restauant at the hotel; the food was good, but a little expensive compared to eating at a one of the local restaurants. However the view is magnificent and you don't really get as clear view from the street restaurants.
The hotel also arranged our car transfer from Naples plus our tour to Capri, all very easy with no problems at all.
