Such mixed feelings I will put it into a pros/cons list:
-Hospitality is unbeatable, Gilda and her husband may be the nicest people on the planet. We were running late for our ferry to Capri with no taxis available and Gilda’s husband personally drove us and weren’t charged for this.
-laundry done at minimal cost
-views are beautiful
-room was very clean
-breakfast avail for 5 euro pp
-Rosa, who is intermittently on the property is very hospitable and helpful with recommendations/reservations. However she is not always around
-pvt small balcony with great views
-ability to walk to Arienzo beach (though it’s 250 steps each way)
-bed was not that comfortable
-AC is noisy
-If Rosa is not around, no one at the property speaks English which can be difficult as a tourist
-property is located in Arienzo beach which is a treck to Positano however location right next to the bus stop helps.
Overall Gildas has everything you need but no bells and whistles which makes sense given the very reasonable price. If you have time to plan things on your own, don’t need concierge and don’t mind the 20-30 Minute walk to town along positano’s winding/hilly roads, it’s a very good place to stay. If you have a bit less time in the area and comfort is a priority it may make more sense staying in town to avoid excess walking and crowded buses.
