They often say it's the people that make the place, and villa flavio is no exception to this. The hotel staff make you feel right at home in positano, in a quiet villa located within a stones throw from the beach. After a long day soaking up the rays on the beach or after a lemoncello or two at a beach side restaurant its location is unbeatable. Our stay there was amazing, with the rooms and facilities superb. Thanks Maria for such a wonderful time.

The location is perfect, the rooms are great, the service fantastic. We stayed with our teenage daughters, we had a ocean view studio and they had a standard studio with no view but large room with small kitchen and bathroom. The setting is perfect with the church next door so we saw lots of weddings in the Piazza in the front of church. Also the private garden and courtyard for the hotel is lovely. Maria gave us some great tips, one of which is the restaurant at Montepertuso where all the produce cooked is grown on the property. We had so much food. When you arrive at Positano, it may be worth getting a porter to take to your bags as there are 2 flights of stairs as well as the stairs in the hotel, (no lift but its only 3 levels high). Porters are 5 euro per bag. Will be back for sure

Room Tip: Ocean views are fantastic.

We stayed here for 7 nights. We had apartment #15 with sea views. Christian, the owner, and Maria are really helpful, nice people and speak excellent English. The room was a delight - clean, airy, sunny and with great views from the balcony. All the things the other reviews rave about! In room Wi-fi internet - wasn't free but very reasonably priced.

We felt we had struck lucky when we got there, having never been to Positano before, as the location was as good as it got. Anywhere further up the hill is going to be hard work getting back to if you go down to the centre of the village and the beach (and you will!). The Villa's location is in the heart of the village in the pedestrian only area.

Our recommendation is to use the porter service (5 Euro a case/bag) because you are going to have to take your bags down 150 metres otherwise - and ours were heavy! We also wouldn't hesitate to recommend getting a car to pick you up if you are doing anything other than driving there yourself (and we absolutely don't recommend driving there - parking alone will cost you a fortune). Positano otherwise requires multiple changes of transport just to get there. Having got there the hard way, we came back the easy way using the car and the porters and it was a breeze. Christian or Maria will arrange the car and porter. Car was 95 Euro to Naples station. We loved staying at Villa Flavio Gioia!
