Villa Principe Giovanni, Positano
We love our stay in Hotel Principe Giovanni and will book this hotel again next time when we visit Positano. Friendly staff and great service. The quality of food and the view from the restaurant are both 5 stars!

Great stay in a lovely hotel
We had a lovely time at Conca d'Oro and Villa Giovanni. The view from the hotel is amazing and the sun deck stunning. I would probably book a regular room in the actual hotel next time, even though the villa rooms were grand, the view was not as good. It's in a great area close to everything, the service is perfect, food great and we would stay again. Unfortunately, their internet is not great and it's good to keep in mind the hotel looses the sun around 16.00.

Nice view, good room, average experience
The hotel is not known as it is advertised, you need to check in at a sister hotel, similarly there is no bag service from the port so it costs €10 per bag to and from hotel unless you want to carry your babe up 500 steps or so to the hotel.. The staff were pleasant, although the Italian idea of customer service differs somewhat when it comes to flexibility. Although the photos show what appears as a reasonable size pool, pool lounges are included on the list of amenity, and it comes up as having a pool on the filter - this is misleading as it is at best a small jacuzzi -and located at the sister hotel - breakfast is ok but you must pay for anything egg based; otherwise food experience pretty average at hotel - wifi was very average to non existent - staff were helpful with organising dinner bookings and bike hire. It is on the outskirts of Positano so if you want to be in town...,
