    Hotel Villa Franca, Positano
    Beautiful Modern Hotel Above Positano.
    The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The service was great, The roof top pool is gorgeous and the restaurant was delicious!! It is truly a very modern and beautiful locale. One warning, it is on top of the mountain, 614 steps, so if you would like to be able to walk to town, it takes so beautiful effort. They also have a car schedule that will help if you don't want to walk. Overall, I loved the hotel.

    Very Good8.0
    Very nice but relatively pricey
    The staff was very pleasant and helpful but the prices for drinks at the pool ($36 euro for a double screwdriver) and dinner in their restaurant were a bit exorbitant. Also the rooftop pool was to small to accommodate many guests. The bar and restaurant down the street were less then half for similar beverages and meals.

    Outstanding 5 star experience
    The hotel was beautiful. Rooms were clean and well appointed (We had a Classic Room for my children and a Deluxe for my wife and I). Views of the town and ocean were outstanding. The rooms were small but well done. Bathrooms were all in marble with tub and shower combinations and recently remodeled. Only one sink and compact but once again well done. The staff really made every day outstanding. They really cared about making sure your stay was exceptional. Breakfast was wonderful and the rooftop pool and restaurant a delight.

    Hotel Villa Franca, Positano
    We loved our time in Positano and loved staying at Villa Franca. The service was sensational and the location gave the most amazing views of the ocean. There are many stairs to navigate but between the shuttle, the road and the stairs we found getting home not Too big of an issue. The hotel was spectacular. We will definitely go back

    Best in the World
    I have stayed in many luxury hotels throughout the world and Hotel Villa Franca is hands down the best in the world. The entire staff go above and beyond to meet the needs of their guests from the concierge to housekeeping and the valets. Positano is breathtaking beautiful on its own, staying at HVF will make your visit unforgettable. We can't wait to come back! Grazie mille!! :-)
