My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Bougainville for our wedding in Positano, Italy. The hotel was recommended by a co-worker who has been in Positano over 20 times and it is where he always stays, for good reason. First, the location is without question the best in Positano. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Many of the other hotels in town are higher up the mountain and require a bus or taxi ride (or a long and grueling mountain hike) down near the beach where all of the shops and restaurants are located. But the Bougainville puts you right where you want to be.
The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and they all spoke good English. It was our first time in Positano and the staff always had a great restaurant or activity recommendation at hand. Also, being that we were getting married, my wife and I needed extra attention and the staff was always willing to help. Marella, the hotel manager and daughter of the hotel's owner, went as far as to help us arrange our wedding dinner for 15 quests at a beautiful restaurant right down on the beach. Marella made us an appointment with the owner of the restaurant to design the menu and accompanied my wife and I to the meeting to make an introduction and help translate.
The hotel itself has been recently renovated and it is modern and very clean. The rooms are clean, large for European standards and have great showers. We had a room with a balcony and amazing see views.
Finally, the rooms are very reasonably priced and a great value. My wife and I plan on returning to Positano often and when we do, we will be staying at the Bougainville.
