This hotel has to be one of the best places to stay in Positano! From the view to the staff to the pool, everything is exceptional. We had a difficult time finding the hotel because we didn't have GPS. I would suggest getting good directions from the SITA Bus Stop before getting there if you don't have electronic navigation.

Our long day in Italy began early after arriving from Houston, so we were looking forward to the Villa dei Fisici for some much needed rest! We were greeted instantly by Franco, the manager of the property, our bags... More

My husband and I decided to splurge on this hotel because we heard everything was expensive in Positano. When we arrived we were not aware we would have to walk up a gigantic hill (no cars can access this hill) to get there, with that said the staff had sent someone down to grab our luggage which made the walk...

We got two rooms for 3 nights and the total price was $2,300... a bit expensive for an old hotel. The place needs to be renovated. The view is great and the location was beautiful. Unfortunately you do need to walk up an enormous hill in order to get to this place. It is not easy to get to!!! Pool... More

We have rented the whole villa for our wedding celebration for a couple of days in September 2013. The Villa is really gorgeous and big. Open terrace is very nice and with great view to Positano!
