L'Ancora, Positano
Love this hotel! The location is perfect. Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants, but not too close so you are not right in the crowds. The rooms are huge and well appointed. The staff is fantastic and very welcoming. We really feel like we lucked out in finding this hotel.

Very Good8.0
This is why you come to Positano
Hotel L'Ancora was a great choice for us. We wanted to splurge on a hotel to ensure that we would get the postcard view that Positano is known for and for that they did not disappoint. The room we had had a great terrace overlooking the view and beach you could hear the waves, a large bathroom with a jacuzzi soaking tub (no stand up shower) and a very comfortable bed (two full size beds pushed together). The only reason I would say I didn't enjoy this hotel was because of an interaction we had with concierge. We called down to ask for a taxi to take us to a nearby town and were given an outrageous. I assumed that was for a private driver so I asked again for a local taxi, nothing extravagant and he said that that's all they can get. So besides the need to upsell, and the lack of a stand up shower in our room, this hotel is great. Breakfast which is included was great. They have a new outside patio overlooking that awesome view. They also have an "American" breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes) with the usual pastries and espresso. It was also centrally located, close enough to the beach, plenty of shops, restaurants and drink options. No swimming pool (you can go to the sister hotel) but the beach is a 5 min walk away. There were also lots of tiny flies everywhere--not sure if that's an issue for the hotel or just because we left a window open!

would come back!
I was very pleased by this hotel and felt relieved I chose it for our magical stay in Positano. I travelled with my husband and 3yo son. We got a superior double room with an amazing postcard view. I loved waking up and stepping out everyday and enjoying the view. My son loved the jacuzzi and took some epic bubble baths. The location is perfect. High enough to see the spectacular overview of water and stacked buildings but low enough it wasn't a far walk to the beach with toddler in tow. There's a pharmacy and grocert nearby and pretty much close to the center area. The hotel is beautiful and modern. Very clean and customer service is helpful. The only thing was that the WiFi was down our first day there but it was back up the next day & being in this magical place it was all good!

Amazing views from a great hotel
Well kept hotel above the main beach of Positano, with amazing views, close to the center of town. Jr Suite had a great deck and hot tub. Parking is 20 euros per night, and you need cash. Hotel is a little further up the street than indicated on Google maps.

The hotel manager was not letting us in the room since we did not carry our US Passports. Some of us had our passports, but our kids did not. They has Ohio Govt issued Driver's License. He was very belligerent and not coorporative at all. We drove for 7 hours to get to Positano, and finally, he let us in the room. He Never cracked a smile !!!
