When we booked this B&B we were given the name Positanobb - which actually means Positano B&B and was not the B7B's name. Nowhere on our booking did we have the name Villa Palumbo so it added a bit of confusion when asking locals for help finding it but with the map, address and friendly locals we found it eventually.
But don't let that put you off.
When we arrived the gentleman (sorry forgot his name now its been a few months...) was charmingly friendly with his broken english. They we cleaning up the place in time for the high season but that did not affect our stay in the slightest we didn't even notice the handyman apart from a polite buongiorno in the morning on our way out.
We had 2 rooms, both had private balconies where we were served breakfast every morning looking out over the mountains of Positano. A perfect way to start the day! So relaxing and protected from the morning sun. One room was much larger than the other but the samller one was still ample for our needs - maybe not if you like to spend all day in your room but you're in Positano! Go out and enjoy it!!!
There is a bus that stops just out the front of the villa that does a circuit down to the centre of town / the bench every half hour and runs until about midnight so be careful not to get stuck down on the beach if you dont want to walk back up the hill. The walk is fine if you like walking and maybe a good chance to sober up?! Not so good if your not overly mobile or tired!
We were given plenty of towels to take to the bench when asked as well as storing our luggage for us on our last day there.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again when we go back to Positano and recommend it - only issues we had are usual problems when travelling with a group / family!
