    The room was lovely but we very terribly disappointed that they actually do not have a jacuzzi available for guests except in only 2 suites. Misleading advertising......see below.

    We were very disappointed about how the hotel is represented on Booked.net. The description says "This hotel in Positano is on a cliff facing the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Big Beach is only 1700 ft from this property where each room comes with a jacuzzi, and a balcony." And shows a picture of an outdoor jacuzzi on a balcony. According to this description we would have a balcony with a jacuzzi...right? Wrong, only 2 suites get to have a jacuzzi on the balcony, which none of the other guests can use. Instead our room had a jacuzzi bathtub! The advertising and description is very misleading and we had been looking forward to a hot-tub jacuzzi as pictured and we very disappointed. No suites were available to upgrade too.

    The location was good. The view over the water and aspects of Positano was sensational. Our room was very spacious and well appointed, including bath robes and double sinks in the bathroom. The pillows were the best we have found in all the hotels we have stayed at. Breakfast was mostly good.

    The safe was not fixed to the wall and could be carried around. The safe also had 'flat batteries' and we could not access it when we needed to. This was an issue as we were told that there wasn't a staff member available to fix the problem. This wasn't professional and the poor attitude and lack of assistance when we needed help made us feel very unsafe. The problem was fixed at a later time but this incident left us with unpleasant memories of an other wise lovely hotel. The lack of staff at this hotel was disappointing and needs to be improved.

    The location is the best in Positano with great sea views from all rooms. No bar or dining except breakfast but this is not a disadvantage as most guests will wish to explore Positano.

    Wi - Fi is only available in the reception area.

    Great staff...friendly, super accommodating ! Location is great and there is parking...very important in this area.

    Our room was beautiful......the hair blower was very bad.....could have used another table or dresser and a mirror in the bedroom area.

    Fabulous big room in a Jr Suite, with unbelievable view from the deck. Jacuzzi on the deck tops out at about 90 degrees. That could have been a bit warmer. But the staff, the service and the view make up

    The location was very good. The staff very warm and friendly. The view from the room and I would suggest the majority of other rooms first class. The rooms are a very good size, lots of space which is good for Italy.

    Not a case of didn't like but to secure internet connection meant a trip up to the reception area for internet connection. But once at reception the staff always were very friendly and helpful for whatever the guest request was for

    A very nice hotel an easy walk down from Sponda bus stop. Very helpful staff assisting us with a restaurant booking in Rome by phone. We had a quite spacious room with a large terrace with a fantastic view over Positano & the ocean. Good breakfast.

    We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded so we had an amazing view & lovely big balcony. The location was ideal & the car parking facilities were an added bonus.

    The view from the room was absolutely amazing you really get what you pay for! If you have a car the parking is excellent as it can be a bit tricky in positano. If you come by ferry and have luggage I would recommend hiring the luggage service to take your bag up for you as there are quite a few stairs but once your at the hotel absolutely breathtaking! I read a review prior to leaving about having a room on the lower level you may not get a view but you do as we did and it was uninterrupted!
