The views from the terrace and balconies were fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful (great family!). Monica provided excellent restaurant suggestions. Our group was 3 couples traveling together so the adjoining terraces were a perfect place to hang out. Be prepared for many, many steps but that is part of Positano's charm.

I am a budget traveler. My theory is that if I keep my costs down, I can go on more adventures. That being said, the hotels I stay in are usually nice, basic clean places in good locations. What a surprise Hotel Il Gabbiano was! Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea! It was wonderful and just added so...

The staff were really nice and helped us a lot. Positano is a small place but picturesque. Our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the harbour with fantastic views. The balcony was big with a table and chairs - so nice to relax in the evening. There is a local service bus which does a circuit of Positano but...

We absolutely LOVED this hotel! I am very big on cleanliness and this hotel was well groomed. We requested a higher floor so that we could have a spectacular view and we got JUST that. Waking up in the morning and sitting our balcony was breathtaking of the tranquility of the calming waters filled with boats. We ventured to the...

We had 3 nights here. When we arrived the fridge in our room was not working but was replaced promptly, would think that these things are checked for working order prior to guests arriving. The internet was terrible hardly working at all. The breakfast was not the best & the water for tea was never hot. The room overlooked the...

This is an unpretentious, small family hotel with good access to a private beach with facilities. The hotel staff are friendly and happy to help at all times. The highlight is the food which is freshly prepared and ample yet modestly priced. In addition, it sits at the quieter end of Sottomarina away from the noise of the centre. They...

This is a small hotel with good sea view. Rooms are quite small but has a terrace and good sea view. Breakfast was basic but acceptable. Have to walk down to the sea and pub area. But personally I prefer this location.

Great views from the hotel and a nice place to relax and enjoy peaceful views. The staff are warm and friendly. Plus breakfast included everyday. The internal drinks and snacks are very affordable as well.

We booked with Air Transat vacations. We were supposed to stay at another hotel but unfortunately got changed to Il Gabbiano. The reception was not very welcoming. There was a mixup with vouchers and we didn't get them emailed to us. Lady at reception was not very helpful. She was annoyed. Our room was ok but had no privacy on...
