Stayed here with my friend and sister for two nights - wish we had stayed longer! The staff is incredibly friendly. We arrived a little before the official check-in time but our room was ready. I wouldn't say Florida Residence is "no frills," but it's also not super fancy...but unless a really nice room is what you're after, this place is absolutely perfect for a Positano stay.
We had a balcony (shared with a friendly couple in the room next door) that was perfect for relaxing mid-day and enjoying a glass of wine at night. The breakfast is a full spread - cereal, fruit, eggs, meats, espresso etc. Reliable wi-fi, too.
Do note that it's a trek up to the residence from the main beach! Lots of stairs, so you're guaranteed to be winded coming back. But, we knew that up front - wasn't a surprise. Just be warned if you don't want to go up and down so many stairs. Wasn't a problem for us at all.
Loved Positano so I definitely plan on returning - and would definitely stay at Florida Residence again.
