It was a good location on the beach and central to the core of Positano. What I didn't like was they were not very nice about our late arrival and it's very hard to find at midnight down many side walks and about 60 steep stairs with luggage and no help or guidance. They said it was to late. At the very least, some one should have met us and walked with us so we would have gone the correct way with the price that we paid.

Incredibly outdated and overpriced. Towels were hard and old, bathroom was gross, very noisy and congested, thin walls. We could literally hear everything, including the people in the next room having sex. Honestly, was not a fan of Positano in general, but if you're going to stay there, go up the hill and do not stay in this location. It is a total tourist trap and not worth the money.

The location of the hotel on the beach was exceptional. The room was spacious and luxurious. The gelato stand right outside the hotel was most appreciated , and the proximity to a lot of great restaurants was an added plus. Also it’s location gives you direct access to ferry service to Capri . I highly recommend this hotel. Be aware that you will have to walk to it, as there is no road to drive to it, but there is a porter service for your luggage

The location and views are splendid. The room s are a bit tired but totally acceptable. Avoid rooms with adjoining room doors as the walls keep the rooms quiet but the thin doors make you feel like the conversations in the next room are in your room. The restaurant Covo is exceptional and the staff is superb. The best feature is the pool with spectacular views and a great staff and poolside restaurant. I believe this hotel has the best location of any hotels in Positano. It would be the only place I would want to stay there.

Walking uphill was a unexpected challenge however the hotel arranged to have the baggage scooter pick up my husband for 10 Euro! The hotel’s location right on the water was superb. Rooms were lovely with balconies. Ask for “water view!”
