    Historical Traveler Reviews Villa La Tartana Positano

    Incredible family-runned hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful!!!

    from

    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!!

    from

    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

    from

    wonderful staff, great position, clean, safe rooms. Nothing was to much trouble.

    Highly recommended hotel and city

    from

    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

    from

    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 $$

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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...
    Era o primeiro lugar que deixávamos para trás, e foi a primeira e dolorosa despedida de um …

    ... sure why - but did notice that the soil was oh so rich and dark down the meter deep trenches.

    Our evening ended (as they mostly do!) with a superb meal - just across the road from our hotel (did we tell you that we were staying at the Hotel California? well, welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place, we're livin' it up at the Hotel California etc.....apologies to the Eagles!). And what a great moonset it was this evening ...

    ... bus. Angelo told me the bus service is actually better than last year; they have been fighting for more busses.

    When we got off the bus it was time once again for the 220 steps up to Mamma Rosa’s. It’s really not a big deal though because when you stop to rest, you get to look at the amazing view.

    We were relaxing on our balcony when we discovered a boys’ soccer game about to start on the field below us. We were to get our Italian ...

    ... found a sheltered spot behind some rocks. Millly and Lachy were the first in, I slowly followed, and it was cold.The sun was shining though. We all braved the cold and were very pleased we did. Ro decided not swim in his undies although he was in the water for a brief time but needed to capture the events on camera. Josh eventually went in also. Now we did have to strip to put our clothes back on and use our shirts as towels but it was all worth ...

Dinner was in the hotel and we were reminded how good it was :( Since dinner was quick, we headed out into the town centre for a stroll and grabbed a few gifts before calling it a night! Tomorrow, it's meant to be sunny so let's hope so! If it's is Capri is the ...
