Fabulous Boutique Hotel
We revisited Villa Franca after our first fabulous very short experience and stayed for 10 days of fantastic views, beautiful Positano restaurants, wonderful staff and outstanding in-house food surpassed by their superb breakfast options and breathtaking breakfast room views.
Beautiful view of Positano
This hotel is unique of itself located on the cliffside. The hotel is a combination where the old world meets modern amenities. The views from the hotel are picturesque and the bar and rooftop pool is absolutely fantastic. However, with so many excellent places to dine, I would not recommend their in house restaurant on the roof top. Although it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a drink at night, the food was not worth the price. We ordered steak (dying for some real protein after weeks of travel) it was cold upon serving and they provided a butter knife to cut it🤔. We asked for something sharper to cut the steak and they seemed puzzled by the request - we did the best without embarrassing ourselves. Breakfast was served at the lobby level restaurant with beautiful views of Positano’s town and sea. The service is excellent but a bit confusing on day 1. At first glance, it appears to be self-service but they quickly inform you to sit - although some things you can get on your own and other items you have to ask for 🤔. Breakfast was awesome overall with mimosas. As I mentioned, the property is on the hillside and quite a climb down (lots of stairs) and a workout coming back to the hotel. They do offer transportation on a golf cart, but we enjoyed our walks/workout. I should mention the hotel has a Annex building next door, so be aware which property or room your booking. The Annex has newer rooms. We stayed at main hotel and loved its. Upon our departure, they gave us a special gift to remember the hotel. We love this hotel. This is our second vacation to Positano and this property.
Vacation with friends
We had the most wonderful time at Villa Franca in Positano. When we arrived Antonio greeted us and showed us the hotel. Antonio was helpful when we checked about perhaps changing our rooms to have better views. That did happen and it made our stay that much more beautiful. The hotel is very modern and “chic”. The buffet breakfast is outstanding and our two cups of capichinno made us feel as if we were really in Italy. The last night of our stay we ate at their hotel. Although it was very expensive, the meal, the atmosphere and service is something that will stay with us for a very long time. The hotel and Positano is just a wonderful place to vacation.
This hotel is incredible. We got an upgraded room. The views are breathtaking and the staff is amazing. The restaurant li galli - and the experience it offers - is out of this world. No better place for our honeymoon.
Very disappointed staying here. The rooms are tiny! I didn’t even have space to lay my luggage out. It’s definitely overpriced, you are just paying for the view( which is not the prettiest color your looking at the other side), the room I would say it’s worth maybe 1/3 of what we paid. I would much rather pay a little more and just stay at Le Sirenuse. Which has a much better view and it’s not that much more expensive. I was so mad I didn’t even want to take photos of the room.
