Historical Traveler Reviews Le Agavi Hotel Positano
Beautiful pllace for a honeymoon
We stayed at LeAgavi hotel for our honeymoon in August 2004. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble.
The views from the hotel were magnificent, the weather perfect an absolutely beautiful honeymoon.
The head barman was a delight.
We have booked again for this year to celebrate our anniversary.
The only downside was the free bus service into Positano which sometimes was very full and we had to wait for another to be sent down to us, but of course one could find a bar and enjoy the atmosphere of Positano itself whilst waiting for the bus to arrive!
Love Le Agavi
This hotel is amazing. The views are fabulous and the staff is magnificent. They go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. We would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Positano or the Amalfi Coast.
Most Americans expect too much travelling to Europe and are sadly let down. This hotel is by far the best European hotel that we have stayed in. It may not have the amenities of the 5 star hotels in Paris, but the service makes up for everything that it may lack. The staff are so down to earth and friendly, that you truly feel welcome and comfortable in your home away from home.
The beds are the only thing that we would complain about, as they are very hard, but even that is ok once you step out onto your terrace for the breathtaking view of the sea and town.
What a view!
We stayed here for five nights in late September '04. We were pleasantly suprised. The hotel was amazing. The views were like nothing we had ever seen! Our balcony was bigger than our room. The service was superb, the room was clean, the breakfast was the best we had during our 2 week trip in Italy!. The 5 star rating doesn't compare to a 5 star hotel in the US, but we didn't have any complaints!
Mostly Very Good
We spent 4 days here at the end of our 12 day Italy trip. The hotel is not right in town, but that is OK as they have a good shuttle system (and free). We found the view from the hotel and our room to be stunning. The service we received was very good. Only the head person at the front desk was uppity - everyone else serviced us in a very nice and classy manner. As 5 stars go, it was a bit weak - the Sirenuse was MUCH better, but MUCH more expensive as well. But it certainly was a strong 4 star status. The tram down part of the mountain side was great, the elevator then on down to the beach was very convenient. The private beach and deck (and bar/restaurant) was not fancy but was nice to be off a public beach. The head waiter seemed to push the fresh fish of the day each day, but we had good meals with great views. The facility was neat clean and charming. Positano is simply gorgeous. We considered the Poisedan, Posa Posa and Villa Franca but were very happy that we chose Le Agavi. It met our expecations!
Not happy whatsoever.
From start to finish, we were very disappointed with this hotel. We had been to Sorrento for a week and Capri for 3 nights and this was supposed to be the highlight. On arrival we did not receive much of a welcome, as if we were a nuisance and brought to our room. The room was extremely disappointing. It was spacious but that was about it. The curtains were dirty, there was a stain on the bed cover. The tv was about 20 years old. The furniture was very ordinary. There was no information on things to do in the hotel or in the town. We also had ants. The breakfast was a joke compared to our hotel in Sorrento, the Ambasciatori. There was never a clean table to sit at for breakfast. The decking area was nice but the water was always filthy with sanitary towels floating everywhere. The restaurant down there was a complete rip off. Lunch there was more expensive than eating out at night in Positano. The shuttle bus was a joke as well. It never had enough space coming back from town and people often had to wait for another bus to be sent. The barman was very nice though. We spent over Eu 12000 in 2 weeks as we were on honeymoon, yet we personally felt we were not good enough for them. We are irish and as a nationality we don't complain to often, but when we do there definitely is a reason for it. We met another irish couple there who stayed there for 2 weeks. We only found out on the bus to the airport that they were very disappointed as well and had left a stinker of a letter.
5 star prices, 2 star hotel.
Le Agavi, a first-class hotel
I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone seeking to stay in the Positano/Amalfi Coast area. The rooms are clean and spacious, and most have terraces overlooking what can only be called one of the most gorgeous seascapes on earth. What's more, the cuisine at the hotel restaurant rivals any five-star restaurant in the US (and in my humble opinion, surpasses the restaurants in Rome). In addition to a pool, there's even a private beach. The hotel staff is also quite friendly and courteous. I would jump at the chance to stay here again!
Love Le Agavi Hotel
Le Agavi Hotel was absolutely beautiful. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The views are breathtaking, the food is delicious and the vibe is good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Positano and I plan to stay here when I go back.
Staying at Le Agavi in Positano was the perfect way to end our two weeks in Italy. The views from the hotel are fabulous. The staff was so friendly, the service in the restaurant was fantastic, and the tram up and down the cliff was charming.
Fabulous view, very welcoming service
We spent 5 gorgeous days in this hotel last October. We had a lovely room with a big bathroom with an enormous window overlooking the sea and Positano. The staff is very friendly. We are certainly planning to go back.
Breathtaking view for quiet days
The hotel is very quiet and the guests normaly come without children. Our room was small and had no possibility for sitting when the balcony was too cold. The bathroom was very small and not as we had ecspected for this price. The view off all rooms especialy the restaurant is breathtaking. The sevice ist very good, there goes a shuttle-bus every hour to Positano. We enjoyed our holidays and will come back next year in this hotel, although some more possibilities like fitness-room or inside pool would be nice.

... stairs and massive locks (turn the key four times to deadlock the door!!).
We locate the Funicular nearby and ascend the mountain to explore shops, streets and, eventually, Fort Elmo, beside which we choose a mountain-top courtyard restaurant with amazing views across the city and the bay and settle in for a fine dinner. Then the funicular (a different one) back to our home at 187 Corso Vittorio Emanuel.
... heard - traffic signals were just a suggestion and the traffic was crazy with no real lanes. We have found in this whole area that the way people get around is on a moped or in a super tiny car - gas is around $10/gallon (2 euro/liter). We were cautious with our belongings, but found the people there to be nothing but helpful. (this has been true all over Italy for us so far) After lunch, we headed to the Archeological Museum, which houses most of the mosaics ...
... emotionally and physically.
I leaf the hotel around 10 a.m. and beet the other tourists to the shops. I enjoyed about 3 hours of time by myself venturing around. Today it really hit me that I was in Italy. As I walked around I spent time reflecting on my time thus far and all that I have been able to see and experience these past two weeks.
Knowing I wanted a relaxing day I chose ...
... bar whose name I cannot for the life of me remember, not for intoxication but more because I am not sure that Italian's wish for their street or building signs to be read. All of the street signs and building details in the area I am staying at are either too small to be read by a naked eye or they are covered by layers of graffiti. So we stopped so everyone could get a drink and then make their way to the plaza. It was a rather large group of Italian's ...
... he carries the camera and I didn't think to get a picture of Len with the group of students. The train soon came, it was a nice modern one. We all sat in the Canadian car and chatted our way into Naples. Here we all parted our ways. We went out to find a hotel, checking several along the way. Wow, they are expensive here. We finally settled on the San George, clean and a bit off the main drag. We thought Athens dirty with garbage on the street and lots ...
