This place has many problems, starting from booking, very unstable owners. you wan't know till the end if you have a place to satay or not. even after our cancellation they were trying to request money from our credit card.so they are many other place in Positano with good operation and nice view.

We had a sea view apartment and it was perfect as the beach was only 1 minute away! Amazing view, comfortable although quite old style decoration but clean! Wifi charge was a bit unexpected and I think should be complementary. Rosa was helpful though. Only thing is that you cannot access the hotel by car so when you have a...

This hotel/apt is a SCAM!!!! Do NOT book here!! They overbook on purpose! A few days prior to your check in, I received an automated email stating my credit card was declined. (I believe that is their way of getting out of a reservation which I had booked many months prior). Multiple emails and phone calls were made to secure...

Had a reservation for a two bedroom apartment. When we showed up they informed us they not only did not have our room but there were zero rooms for us! They did not help us find another location so we drove 3.5 hours to the Rome airport to sleep and catch our flight the next afternoon instead of where we...

This was our second visit to La Caravella. The first was a fantastic experience, but this time I ran into the issue so many others have spoken of. I chose to reserve the three bedroom for the terrace and privacy and paid well for it, but when I arrived was put into a one bedroom and loft with a curtain...

Although it somewhat worked out. When we arrived, they did not have a room. We had a reservation confirmation, so they came up with a room and the next day moved us to a larger room. We were charged an exorbitant rate, which was only on Expedia, feeling desperate for a place to stay. This is not a hotel. It...

In all my trips, this is for sure the WORST accommodation ever. We had 3 rooms booked but to our surprise, they only provided 2 and said take it or leave it!!! The staff is rude sorry VERY rude and they hang up the phone on you after mumbling in Italian. Really don't come here at all.

This hotel is beachfront. The pictures for their website and on trip advisor do not make it clear that this hotel is beachfront Positano, its the only one. Every other hotel is a steep climb upstairs. Yes, the climbing hotels have spectacular views, but the stairs in Positano are stairmaster grade, straight up pretty much up. This is really not...
