We have just spent four nights there and were amazed at the views and the facilities. They have beautiful views and a lovely breakfast with a gorgeous pool and their own private Beach - incredible. Quite a few steps but apart from that is was wonderful

PROS: B&B is owned and managed by a very nice family. Also, the staff is very friendly. Most rooms have large balcony with stunning views. The breakfast is delicious with fresh fruits. The facility has private pool and beach. You may walk to Positano in 5 minutes. CONS: Wifi is on only in breakfast area, no wifi in the rooms....

Lovely hotel walking distance from Positano. Decoration is old and bedding is sub par. But the view is fantastic and the location is perfect. Very good service and nice breakfast. Be prepared to climb stairs up and down the cliff. All in all great value for money.

Waking up at La Fenice in Positano is proof that you've made a least a few good choices in life. La Fenice feels like an Italian verison of Downton Abbey - glamorous views, generously-sized homey rooms and the best breakfast view you will ever ever have. The family is friendly, engaging and possess a wealth of knowledge about the area...

My only regret is that we did not stay more than 3 nights. La Fenice is family run, Constantino, Angela, Jacomo, Julio run a wonderful B&B overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. Some rooms are built into the cliifs, with terraces overlooking an incredible view, Be warned that there are many steps going up to the road, down to the private...

Should you be visiting Positano, this is definitely a great place to stay. As with many places in this area, there are A LOT of stairs, so be prepared, but the staff are incredibly friendly, and the owners make a lot of effort to get to know you on a personal level. Depending on the room you get, you may...

La Fenice is unique! Nestled into the cliff face on the side of Positano this place has beautiful views from most rooms of the water and coastline of Amalfi. Run by the Mandara family who make you feel part of their family, so you are immediately at ease. Constantino and sons Giulio and Giacomo make sure you are comfortable, and...

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks at La Fenice, in a small villa below the road, between the beautiful pool and private beach. We lived a simple life, eating fresh figs and homemade fig jam for breakfast, homegrown tomatoes for lunch and dining t the local recommended tavernas at night. We sat on our terrace at dawn and dusk bedazzled...

My wife and I stayed 5 days. The family was pleasant & helpful. The boys haul your luggage up several flights of stairs for you so you can make it up the trek. ( I warn you now they have a lot of steps to climb). This hotel is in desperate need of renovations. The beds are old, uncomfortable and...
