La dolce vita is just three or flights over the Fornillo beach, but 25 sets of stairs away from the parking place. It has very difficult acces , if you plan to go make sure you hire a porter to bring the luggage. The place is clean and has direct ocean view. The parking place that is recommended is also...

My wife and I were celebrating our first year of marriage in Italy; rounding out our stay in Positano. She chose our accommodations with the following parameters in mind: a view of the ocean and no more than 5 mins walking distance from the beach. La Dolce Vita satisfied both. The room was spotless with a recently updated interior /...

Thanks to Maryse for her warm hospitality, care & attention. We enjoyed our stay at "La Dolce Vita"… a wonderful relaxing week thanks to spacious comfortable accommodation together with the added bonus of a beautiful "terassa" overlooking a panoramic sea view not excluding the soothing rhythm of waves gushing to the shore…absolute heaven! Here on the terrace we received a...

We loved this place, the room was spotless, the bathroom was big and brand new with a view of the sea. The balcony was beautiful with the most gorgeous sea view. The perfect place to have breakfast in the mornings. We could hear the sound of the waves crashing on the beach as we lay in bed. It was great....

This was the most expensive hotel of our trip and also the most unprofessional service. We were originally supposed to be put in the main building (located very close to the beach) with access to WIFI. When we arrived, they put us in a room about 100 steps up from the main building with no access to Internet and ants...

Trying to make sense of the discrepancies in the reviews before we came, I was perplexed. After my experience, I can make sense of it. The first night we were put in a bottom room, despite having clearly booked a top room with balcony. The first room was awful. It smelt of damp due to the building being old. When...

Where to begin? Location in Fornillo is lovely and wonderful view without the docking of the ferry boats every 15 minutes at the main beach. Nice restaurants. One of the closest hotels to the beach and a little walk or free ferry to the main beach with shopping and more eating. The free ferry makes it extra charming. Ferdinando's Eggplant...

Stayed here with my grown son in October for 4 nights in a twin room. View was magnificent from our room. Beds comfortable, room nicely appointed but not over done. Good bathroom, breakfast was good with a cappuccino each morning. Loved the fact that it is situated in Fornillo which is just around the point from the main beach. Hang...

Pros: Clean rooms, lovely sea views Cons: Unbelievably bad access (though this is Positano not the hotels fault but DO YOUR RESEARCH! 300 steps to the beach sounds like nothing when you read it on your ipad from the comfort of your sofa) There are many better positioned hotels - Savoia, Pupetto etc Hosts are cold and abrupt. May have...
