    The staff was very pleasant and the views were very nice.

    The beds were extremely uncomfortable. Very little hotel amenities, or at least no communication about what they were - no games for a rainy day, coffee maker in the room, etc... Finding the parking lot was challenging and getting from the lot to the actual hotel is difficult (2 elevators down plus 70 steps and through another hotel to get there). There were ants in the bathroom. While there were doors opening up to the sea, would have been nice to have a ceiling fan as the room felt stuffy.

    Was worth paying extra for the sea-view room with balcony - especially as you have to pay to sunbathe on the beach, so may as well sunbathe on your own balcony.

    Because we were not happy with this hotel, we changed our booking and left after 2 nights (instead of the planned 4). The supposed advantage of this hotel is that it is near the beach. Although what we did not realise was that it is a public beach which you have to pay 7 euros per person for per day (no discount for hotel guests). It is a very narrow and busy beach of grey shingle with garish sunbeds packed tightly together - very noisy from the beach bars. Also it means there is no access to the hotel by road. Although there is a lift, there is still quite a lot of walking down narrow stairs (not pleasant with heavy luggage in hot weather) - also quite a walk from the marina. We ate in the restaurant - food was average and staff very rude.

    Awesome location for beach and walks to town! Staff was friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was excellent with a beautiful view and great service. We will be back to Positano and Pupetto!

    The staff was very attentive. During the complimentary breakfast offered each morning, the staff would greet each guest and then brought out your coffee request very rapidly. They were always smiling and helpful - gave us a map upon arrival which helped us navigate around town, showed us where the nearby lift was to get into the more central part of Positano and had the most amazing pizza (as well as some of the best food in the area)! We stopped at various cities in Italy during our trip, including the "best" pizza place in Naples - pizza's birthplace -- and it did not hold a candle to the delicious margherita we enjoyed at Pupetto. It was so good, my husband and I tried three different pies. Beach views from the room were also great!

    The only thing we thought could use some improvement was the shampoo - it was provided in plastic packets, and served as both the soap and shampoo. We would have preferred to use a dispenser as the little tubes were sometimes hard to squeeze the shampoo out, but this is very minor. The hotel was great on all other and the most important counts, had an excellent staff and facilities, unbeatable location and felt very authentic - we noticed a lot of locals perusing the restaurant, another stamp of approval when traveling. Would recommend to all!

    There were nice views of the hotel and it was close to the beach. However, the town was further away than the website made out.

    I would not recomend that people stay at the hotel if they have a car. We got a "puncture" while the car was in the car park and had to pay €70 for repair. It is very far from the hotel and we had to carry all our bags down from the car to the hotel with 2 elderly parents. The porter on the way back up cost €8 (not high on the service side of the business)

    The beach and the view and the food

    This review has far more than only four questions.

    The hotel is lovely, with helpul staff, good food and wonderful location, situated on the seaside. 5 minutes walk to the center.

    There is no vehicle access to the hotel, which can complicate someone's life. For us it was great experience with healthly lifestyle, walking, enjoying the surroundings and amazing views.

    Beautiful location and restaurant overlooking sea. Excellent g0od-sized room with terrace, friendly staff

    A bit isolated, so short walk to town in dark along coastal path at night.

    We were able to relax, the hotel as advertised is in the quoted area of Positano. For three star hotel, service and accommodation was adequate.

    More should be explained to visitors to p ositano in general and this hotel in particular about the difficulties with access and baggage handling. Hotels should explain more clearly where visitors should ask to be dropped off and how to get the baggage to the hotel. When we knew how, our departure was much easier than our arrival

    The dining area and the helpful staff there

    My television didn't work for the first 2 days. The sink in the bathroom needed attention. There was no information sheet about the hotel or its facitlities in the bedroom. For the money I paid I thought that a refrigerator in my room would have been the norm.

    A beautiful location directly at the beach. The coffee bar in the restaurant always prepared to make an excellent cup of espresso. Nice staff in the restaurant and in the hotel.

    Staff were lovely & helpful.

    The room looked tired & a bit shabby. The main room light didn't work, nor did the fan in the bathroom which wasn't fixed despite us requesting this. They have double glazing on the main door to the balcony yet not sealed below the window next to it so double glazing pointless. It was just an ok mid level hotel but w good location on beach.
