My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Onda Verde for 5 days this month - after a rocky start. We received an email from the hotel telling us to call to arrange for a water taxi to meet us at the dock in Positano. When we called we were told - just take the water taxi when you arrive. It was a hassle, more expensive that originally told, and no-one could instruct us on how to reach the hotel once we arrived other than take the steep path with our heavy suitcases. What was not an auspicious beginning turned into a delightful stay at a lovely, family run hotel nestled into the side of a cliff with a heaven-made view. The spacious room (124) is well maintained, the bed very comfortable, and the view from our terrace was breathtaking. A sufficient breakfast was included in our room rate. The public bus stop is right at the hotel's parking lot making it a convenient, cost-effective location. Just don't expect the busses to be on time and be prepared to stand for the trip to Positano or Amalfi - but this is part of the experience. The staff including Francesca and Francesco were always helpful. They arranged for us to be picked up by a family-owned restaurant in Priano - La Strada where we enjoyed one of the best meals of our 2 week trip. I'm sure there are other equally beautiful hotels, but the Onda Verda is situated away from the maddening crowd, yet close enough to enjoy the entire coast. We highly recommend that you consider staying here - just arrive by car- not water taxi if you have luggage.. However, they graciously arranged for water taxis to take us to one of the other towns - a convenient alternative to the busses which allow for an incredible view of the coast,. I dream of returning!
