Positano when it rains
We came from our vacation on Capri and spent the night. It poured down rain so hard but we managed to order room service and stay in. It was still a beautiful trip.

Great views, great room, wonderful time
A beautiful hotel in a wonderful location with great views of Positano from both the hotel room and the restaurant. The room had a lovely balcony were we lounged in the sun and the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub that was equally relaxing. Since the hotel is built on the hillside, the room access was not amenable to anybody in a wheelchair. There might be other rooms that are but when the elevator let us out we still had to go down a short flight of stairs and the up another to get to the room. The bellboy took care of all the luggage so that wasn;t an issue and the hotel has arrangements with a parking garage so all we had to do was pull up to the hotel and they took care of the rest (at a cost of 50 Euro/night). The food in the restaurant was good but there were other places nearby that had great food. OVerall, it was a very good stay with a wonderful staff.
