Travel Blogs from Positano
I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
After yesterday's dramas and combined with the alcohol consumption, both of us didn't sleep that well but we must put that behind us for the sake of this trip otherwise we might as well go home!! Enjoyed our first breakfast in Sorrento overlooking the beautiful coastline and with Mt Vesuvius in the background. With advice from our wonderful hotel owner he helped us organise our next few days in Sorrento. Plans for today is to visit Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii. Before we take ...
... Arrived at Nocello after 3 hours where we made the good decision to catch the bus down to Positano rather than climb down the 1,700 steps to a beach 15 minutes from Positano. The bus trip was another experience of a spectacular views and a 2 way road really only suitable for one way. Bus drivers exceptional and deserve a gold medal. Weather was kind to us, not too hot or humid, slight breeze made the walk bearable. On our return we walked down to the beach along the path where ...
... below the B&B. It's a tiny little cove but it's perfect. I much prefer this compared to the packed public beaches, lined with chairs and umbrellas and thousands of bodies...The downside here is the beach is large pebbles, making walking in or out of the water not terribly graceful, although the local italians seem to have it worked out, but perhaps their feet are more hardened than mine as we are on the tail end of their summer.
... had a lot more character. We were picked up by our captain and we all enjoyed a lazy nap on the padded deck, whilst being thrown around by the rough sea. Dinner by the waterfront and many memories, tears and discussions. Paul, we drank, we ate, we cheer'sed,, we even sang. 4 months and every breath, every step, is with you and for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eden Roc Positano
The Eden Rock in Positano was heavenly!
From the beatiful view from our balcony, to the sumptuous room, to the staff that went above and beyond, the Positano Eden Rock was more than we could ask for. Because it was off season, we got a terrific rate, but it would be worth the full price any time of year. Although the hotel was further from the shopping and restuarant areas than some of the other hotels, they have a nice walkway from the hotel and it's a pleasant 5-10 minute walk.If you are staying on the Amalfi Coast, my recommendation is to make the Eden Rock in Positano your home base. Amalfi, Ravello, Sorrento, and Capri are all a short drive or boat trip away.
We stayed at the Eden Roc for 3 nights in October 2003 and had a wonderful experience. Overall the service was about the best we had in Italy, from the welcoming and helpful front-desk staff to the accomodating and playful personalities of the wait staff. They arranged transportation for us from Naples, and also arranged day trips for us on the Amalfi Coast with a private driver. We had a beautiful junior suite with tiled floors, ample room, lovely and simple decor, and a huge bathroom with two sinks and a jacuzzi tub. The view from our large balcony was exquisite - overlooking the ocean with a postcard view of Positano. As we were there in October we didn't use the pool facilities, but the view from up there, as well as from the top-floor breakfast room, was lovely. Breakfasts were very good, as was the dinner we had in the hotel's restaurant. The hotel is on a somewhat busy street so you did tend to hear some street noise if you're on a lower floor, and the tiled floors did cause some amplified noise from the hallways, but overall the rooms were an oasis and you can't beat the picturesque setting. We also enjoyed the location of the hotel - easy and convenient walking distance down to the center of town, but just far enough from the more touristy center/beach area. The hotel is also in a perfect location to take the city buses to other cities on the coast as the bus stop is only steps from the hotel. Overall our stay at the Eden Roc was a relaxing and enjoyable treat.
Eden Roc suites
Beautifully kept up, owners present, fabulous staff, great food, great views - may be a bit high up for some, pool is small, set up not perfect for kids, but very child friendly
I recently stayed at this pretty hotel (September) We were with a small group and this family run hotel has done everything right. It has been beautifully renovated with all the most modern conveniences. We all had deluxe sea view rooms with balcony (definitely worth spending the extra money if you are spending several days). The food in the restaurant was excellent and breakfast each morning was lovely and the service good.
My one main complaint, as is true in so many hotel rooms in Europe, the lighting in the bathrooms was bright everywhere but where it counts and that was over the vanities where we women have to apply our make-up.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Our stay at the Eden Roc was extremely pleasant. The hotel is located in the middle of Positano, approximately a ten minute walk from the beach and a five minute walk from the beginning of the prime shopping area. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. We stayed in a junior suite, which had a nice Jacuzzi and a large open terrace. The terrace had panoramic views of the bay and the rest of the city of Positano (the nighttime views were especially impressive). The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hotel's rooftop restaurant served excellent local fare and featured entertaining music at night. I highly recommend having dinner in the rooftop restaurant, it is a very romantic experience. The only major drawback of the hotel was the rooftop pool, which was very small. Nonetheless, we had a great stay at the Eden Roc and really appreciated the attentive, largely English speaking staff.
Watch out for August!
A comfortable hotel in this compact resort. Make sure you are on the 2nd floor or above. Suites are a better investment than superior rooms - jacuzzis, more space and better views. Staff English is excellent (some native speakers). Food is first class. We were there in August and the rooftop garden provided a great view of the fireworks display on the annual festival evening. But August is also the peak Italian holiday month and the crowds and the heat and humidity made our stay a little uncomfortable, as well as more expensive. Watch out for the singer in the restaurant - so loud as to make conversation impossible.
And that coast road! Take your travel pills.
Positano, our favorite place in the world
Positano is our favorite place in the world. The Eden Roc Hotel is exquisite & the location fabulous for a outstanding vacation amongst the warm & friendly Italians........We are constantly recommending Positano to our friends!!!!
Expected more for my money
The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are very nice and very big for European standards. But, the hotel is located on a busy road and the view from the first floor rooms is not unobstructed. I was a little disappointed, considering how much we paid a night. That being said, the view from the 6th floor - where the pool is and where you have breakfast - is outstanding!
The staff is very friendly, helpful and speaks excellent English. Would recommend this hotel if you can afford to stay in the rooms on the upper floors.
If you want a charming, picturesque hotel in positano, the Eden Roc is that and more!The staff goes out of their way to accommodate the needs of every guest. Every room has a beautiful sea view and the meal served in their elegant restaurant was the best we had in positano. We can't wait to return!
Oh so pretty
The hotel is pretty the food is great the staff are wonderful what more could you want.
It very relaxing and has to be the most inspiring place i have ever been. The hotel has beautiful views over the scenic Amalfi coastline.
If your going to Italy and want an image that will stay in your mind forever of Italy go to the Eden Roc Hotel Positano. Though don't tell to many people about!
