Historical Traveler Reviews Villa La Tartana Positano
Incredible family-runned hotel
First, my wife and I researched for two months on hotels for our trip to Italy for the end weeks of July 2004 and all I can say is that it surely paid off. Ths is a great family-runned hotel, thirty or so steps away from the beach whose staff makes sure that your stay is the most pleasant possible. Continental breakfast is served at your requested time in your room and on your balcony overlooking the beautiful seaview. Very clean and quaint, this 3 star hotel is absolutely worth the price quality ratio. The pictures on their website are accurate. Considering its location and comfort, this is a little jewel not to be missed. (Other hotels we recommend that we stayed are: Palladium in Rome, Adler Cavalieri in Florence, Ai Mori D'Oriente in Venice and La Minerva in Capri).
Quaint, Picturesque and Friendly
We stayed at La Tartana the last week of our honeymoon. It's a family owned B + B and it certainly is well worth it. Very affordable: make sure you get a sea view. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the town and sea every morning was heavenly. The staff was friendly and helpful, Carmella helping us out lots! Very close to restaurants and shopping. It is not too far up, as Positano is nothing BUT hills and stairs.
Our family of 4 spent 3 weeks in Italy from May 15/04 ranging from Rome, Tuscany, the lake area and Venice and Villa La Tartana tops them all. Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious for all 4 of us, with a balcony overlooking a portion of the sea and walk area with stores. The continental breakfast was delicious, delivered to your room at the requested time each morning. The staff was pleasant and helpful. One night we had a fuse blow in our room killing the power to outlets only and upon our departure our bill was reduced for "all" the nights rather than just the one night we experienced the problem. It is close to the beach, close to restaurants, the little shops are steps away, an internet cafe was available closeby. Positano is a wonderful place to experience the Amalfie Coast and Villa La Tartana is a great affordable place to do it. It comes with high recommendation from our family.
You must stay!!
I would highly recommend this small hotel to anyone. We stayed here for four days while on our honeymoon. The hotel is located only steps from the beach. The staff is very friendly and the hotel was clean and comfortable. We slept to the sound of the ocean all night long.
GREAT PLACE GREAT SERVICE
wonderful staff, great position, clean, safe rooms. Nothing was to much trouble.
Highly recommended hotel and city
This hotel was outstanding. The staff was very friendly and very helpful with all of our questions. Our room was magnificent with two balconies that each looked out to the sea. The bathroom was large and the air conditioning worked beautifully.
The hotel is located about 100m from the ocean and was a two minute walk to the water. It's also centrally located to walk to all of the numerous local shops in the area.
If you stay at this hotel, you MUST have them make reservations at Cafe Positano for you. The owner of the hotel also owns the restaurant. We were treated to the single best meal of our two week trip around southern Italy. The service, the free drinks, the private balcony for two, the food, the atmosphere, the view of the entire city lit up at night looking out to the ocean, everything. It was sensational.
Absolutely LOVE this place
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The employees are wonderful and SO helpful. The rooms are just beautiful with the hand-painted tiles. What a gem!
Great value for $$
We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 2 days and loved it. The rooms were new, clean with a great location and near the beach area. Rooms are immaculate, breakfast delicious and A/C to boot. All within walking distance. The pictures on their website don't do it justice at all (and these pictures are nice). The Caldiero family members are so accomodating and friendly, we would return anytime. Go to restaurant Il Guaricino...family run restaurant with a view to die for....and do park your car at Madara Garage...and tell them you are with La Tartana, your rate goes from 35 euros to 20 euros per day...better yet, don't take a car.
Loved the Villa La Tartana
We loved the Villa La Tartana in Positano. Excellent position, not too many steps, and lovely friendly service. Our room was huge, air conditioning was very effective, and bathroom very spacious. We were there June 2003, and found everything about the hotel great. It is a small, family run hotel, and that is one of the main attractions. Breakfast served in room, and view from room was partial sea view. Loved it!!!
Positano B&B La Tartana
We found La Tartana via a reference from the management at (the full) Villa Rosa (review on this site), and have to inform anyone interested that La Tartana was a very nice hotel (about 16 rooms in all). For $125 per night during September (high season), La Tartana provided us with an excellent view of the Mediterranean, a very clean room with CNN/BBC, and an excellent breakfast every morning on our private deck. The only downside was the many flights of stairs leading from the small pathways of Positano near the beach, up to reception, and then up 4 1/2 flights of stairs to our room.
The service was really our only complaint (a little cold), but it certainly wasn't enough to interfere with our enjoyment of this hotel.

Começamos o dia com um belo café da manhã no hotel! O garção que nos atendeu era muito simpático e tentávamos conversar em italiano. Ele nos ensinava a pronúncia correta de lugares que iríamos visitar e eu lhe ensinava como assassinar a língua italiana...

Our last day in Positano, our last real day of holiday!
So, we slept in, had a late breakfast, chatted to the South Africans staying at our B&B and decided to head to the beach as it was a perfect summer day!
On our way out Nonna and daughter were sitting in the sun room and called me over to come and relax with them. It was very funny as Phil decided he would stand with the grandson who was working at the Reception desk, all in ...
... had to resist buying ! We then wove our way back down the gorge to the beach again and stopped at La Pergola for a beer. This is a very pretty beach front aka touristy bar/ Ristorante, that was completely covered in Bouganvillea ( not yet flowering). There we stayed for an early dinner after which we climbed back up to our room for the ...
With a lazy day planned maybe wandering down to the beach or staying in the pool (weather permitting) and generally not doing a great deal.
This evening we have booked into Trip Advisors number 1 restaurant for this area La Tagliata
which is a very strange restaurant with no menu !
We have been told we will be stuffed and not to eat much dinner !
... all of which were still too crowded to even find a parking space. We stopped in Positano, about two-thirds of the way out on on the peninsula to visit the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta. This church has a 13th century Byzantine altar, that features a "Black Madonna". We stopped for lunch on the way back up to our car.
By early afternoon the temperatures were quite hot (in the upper 80s), so we skipped taking a hike in the nature reserve ...
