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.

Nat, Isla and I went swimming in the ocean at Positano and the ...
... touristy streets, filled with shops and restaurants. Our goal is the bus station to get our tickets and find out when we need to take the bus back. This accomplished, we find a place to eat that is overlooking the town and harbor. We can not believe that we are really here! We have the best bruschetta ever at this tiny bar and the service is wonderful. We are in heaven!! Now the adventure really begins! We head to the bus stop and seem to be ...
... the shop, she was confronted by 3 very large American speaking Italians, all speaking like Tony from the TV show "Sopranos".......Jan wondered if the shop owner was late on his rent or "mafiosa fee" ?????!!!! And perhaps she was being a bit dramatic in her thinking........this is southern Italy, and we all know that Mafiosa is confined to just the island of Sicily - si ??!!! Another thing that we have noticed while being here in Italy is the ...
... it was an adventure, fun and very exhilarating. Whereas the older crowd looked scarred with fear and one or two got sick, I bet few of them were praying that they would reach safely. The boat continued dancing to the wild stormy waves till we finally arrived safely at the marina where all the crew from the marina were waiting for us to land and they literally hurled us out of the boat. I could see the relief on the passengers; well I am here to tell the tale ...
