My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at Hotel La Bougainville in Positano from August 3rd to August 8th. It is located right in the centre of Positano and is close to the beach and all stores and restaurants. The hotel itself is not that big, but for the price we paid, and the amount of time we...

Hotel is very well located, in the center, 2-3 min walk to the beach and port. Amazing landscape out of the window. Nice service and friendly staff always willing to help. Rooms with sea view are great, standard size, clean. It's good value for money especially if you prefer active tourism and don't spend all day in the hotel. Breakfast...

This place was in the perfect spot - easy walk to the beach, atms, shops, restaurants. Our room didn't have a view but it was clean and spacious and my friends and i were very happy with it. Marella and the team were very helpful and easy going - they provided towels for the beach every day, which was handy....
