TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bougainville Positano
The hotel is comfortable and had a great balcony overlooking the town and the ocean. The hotel is just outside the pedestrian only section of Positano making it very convenient to walk down into the town but the drawback to the location is the exhaust from all the vehicles travelling up to the upper reaches of town and beyond. If you arrive, as we did, via ferry, the hike to the hotel with bags is quite steep and tiring.
The room was spacious and had good WiFi. The breakfast was OK not overwhelming but served in a nice breakfast room.
Staff were very friendly and helpful when needed.

... Mediterranean, I was here and I should enjoy it. And I have to say it wasn't as cold as the Adriatic Sea around Croatia, but the Adriatic is so much clearer.
Swim time done, dried odd, got changed and I had great timing because Pepe had just bought out his home made Limoncello. He had made 50 litres and we gave him some serious help reducing the quantity. It was a really good one.
Lots of chatter and fun on the way home, getting in about 5.45pm.

Sometime during the day, we stopped at the Hotel Palazzo for a drink in the beautiful gardens. Bob ordered a beer (just for a change !) - and when it arrived, he was disappointed that it tasted "thin"....then he realised that the waiter had given him a non-alcoholic beer. Oh well, he said, guess it's a beer ...
... train was not near as comfortable and it smelled of toilet the whole way but at least it wasn’t crowded so I didn’t have to lift the suitcases up.
When the ticket man came to check our tickets he told me I had only had one ticket on my reservation. I had wondered about this ticket before because only Mel’s name was on it but I had another one like it previously and there was no issue. He ended up saying it was okay and didn’t charge me but he ...
... the City of Sorrento around 6:30 and were sitting at our favorite night spot - The Village Caffè - well before 8:00. We're not quite sure why, but we were again treated like royalty. (Maybe it was our friend Luca - who seemed to know everyone. Perhaps the staff just took pity on the two foreigners who obviously were camped out in the outdoor lounge, nursing their drinks and taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi.) Whatever the case, we were treated ...
... it and it was entertaining to see some passengers not! The weather was intermittant but stopped by the time we reached the town of Positano. There are various towns all the way to Amalfi but we wanted to spend time in Sorrento so cut this part to the most scenic town.
Positano is set against the cliff with some even higher ones behind it, has loads of history and wonderful blue water. Its a bit touristy and very expensive - $4 euro for ...
