First, Positano is beautiful, and I'd recommend the town to anyone. Second, La Bougainville is amazing. The staff all speak great English and are very friend. The breakfast is delicious. Our view was amazing. I really can't say enough good things about this place. I'd recommend it 100 times over.

This was our favorite place when we visited Italy. Positano is a beautiful part of the world. The view from our room (#20) was fantastic. we overlooked the city and water. It was wonderful to come home after swimming or exploring and have a glass of wine on our deck and enjoy the view. The hotel itself is very clean...

The room was clean and a good size but it was very plain. The small window and view of rocks ( which I knew about prior to booking) made the room a...

This place originally caught my eye because of it's name. After a bit of exploration on their website, I was more impressed and booked our stay. It is a very lovely hotel.

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...
