“A great place in a great town”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

A beautiful family run B&B with a great view of Positano and the ocean. Celeste, Francesca and the rest of their family keep the place immaculate. They were also very helpful with suggestions for restaurants. One night we were waiting outside the Residence to be picked up to go to a mountain top restaurant. Celeste waited with us for almost 1/2 hour to make sure we would get our ride. Truly above and beyond the call of duty and a great example of how they care about thier guests. Our private bathroom was across the hall but this did not cause any inconveneince at all. We travelled with our Brother and Sister-in-law and the large adjoining balcony was great for having a glass of wine and some nibbles after a day of touring. The balcony was also a great way to make new friends in the next room.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the higher elevation as these have a better view of the ocean. Romms 4, 5, and 6 w...

Getting to Positano is an adventure in itself and it was such a treat to stay in this guest house. I had researched a bit but they aren't really well connected to the web etc. so it took some work to find a contact email for this jewel. It is celeste.dileva@tiscali.it -- And they respond very promptly. I was able to book ahead and pay when we arrived. The location and price is unbeatable and the view... I just was in heaven. The rooms are simple, but come with a fantastically large balcony that has this amazing view of the Mediterranean and a great Mosque and the famous hill. We were steps away from one of the cute main alleyways that lead to the beach that had an amazing little patisserie that we tried one of everything it seemed and a little grocery store right there too.. so we would just take things back to our peaceful little balcony or to the beach/rocks for an amazingly romantic dinner on our budget! Loved this place!

Room Tip: ask for a balcony ( i think they all have one)

After a long day of travels (roughly 18 hours) we were tired and frusterated. We finally got to La Tavolozza at 8pm at night. We were greeted with a warm welcome and wisked into our room to relax. After the long travel all I wanted to do was to relax and be taken care of, and we got just that and so much more.

You will FALL IN LOVE with the staff and the charm of this hotel. When we got to our room we were amazed at how large it was. Our room was a two room suite with balcony. After our luggage was taken to our room the curtains were drawn and the view was literally breath taking. There is a mini fridge in the room which was great to chill water and of course wine :).

In the morning you can add breakfast for only around 5 Euros per day (depending on what you get). We got appricott filled coissants, cappacinos and some pound cake. All you have to do is let the staff know what time you want it delivered and everything is taken care of.

The location of this hotel is the best in town. Its a short walk down the hill to the beach and shopping. If you are looking for views this is the place to be. Yes you will have to walk up the hill to get back to the hotel but its honestly not that bad (you'll be walking off all the pasta you are most likely eating any way). Its about half way up the hill- which is where you want to be to get the views.

There was an internet cafe at the bottom of the hill by the beach. This is the only place to get internet and all you have to do is buy a coffee or something and you get a free half hour. DO NOT eat at the internet cafe...its horrible. A coffee only place.

There is also a place at the beach to rent umbrellas and chairs. They charge 12.50 Euros but in no time you can get it down to 10 euros for all day use.

All in all if you are looking for great views, amazing staff and to relax and be taken care of, this is the place to go!

This was our last stop on a two week Italy vacation, starting in Tuscany, then Rome, then Positano. This was BY FAR our favorite place. The owners of this hotel speak some English, so it's fairly easy to communicate. The room we got (#7), was an apartment style, with a hallway, bathroom, kitchen, and spacious bedroom. It had a small balcony with table and chairs that had a view of the ocean on your left, and a view of Positano to your right. The owners said this room didn't have as great of a view as the others, but we were still so happy with the whole thing! It was a few steps away from the stairway that leads you down into the heart of Positano, which was perfect since we knew others who stayed at hotels with much farther walks. It was also just down the street from the Sponda bus stop so we could easily get in and out of Positano. The bed was comfortable, and overall, we were THRILLED. Definitely will be back again!

We stayed in Positano for four nights in early September and our stay at La Tavolozza was fantastic.

This small family run business is definitely one of the best value places to stay. It's in a great location - only a short way up the hill but still had amazing views. It's also an easy walk to some good restaurants, bars and deli's if you didn't want to walk right down to the water front.

Our room had a huge balcony with a fantastic view of the water. Although breakfast isn't included in the price it was available, good value and served whenever you like on your balcony.

The room itself was pretty spacious (especially since you spent most of your time on the balcony) and the bathroom was a good size and included a bath.

The staff were all super friendly, warm, welcoming and more than happy to help with recommendations for places to visit and eat. They also spoke great English.

There is an information centre located 5 mins from the residence who provided lots of useful information about transport and were happy to book our return bus trip to Rome as the site was in Italian.

I did a cooking class on my last day in Positano at the deli located nearby. Unfortunately it was probably the worst class I've done - I essentially paid for the privilege of being their kitchen hand for the day. The class wasn't structured at all and the staff didn't speak much English so asking questions was difficult. I basically helped them prepare the food they sold at the deli. This was just the name of a place I was given amongst many others by the lovely ladies and not an indication of the great advice they gave as they had no experience of the course, only knew that they ran them. I chose this place on my own accord but wanted to note it so they could advise against it for other visitors :-)

We hope to go back to Positano and would definitely stay here again. It's a little gem in what can be a very expensive part of Italy to visit.

Thanks for a great time ladies!
