Three of us stayed in the studio room at the end of the B&B and we're completely stunned by the beauty of this place. After braving the winding stairs and trying not to break our necks ogling the views around every corner, we were delighted to find our hotel nestled in a wonderful, blooming garden on the edge of a cliff. The staff were the most friendly and helpful I've ever encountered in Italy. Breakfast on the roof terrace was like a fantasy each morning. We greatly value quiet, nature and peaceful times with happy folks- so Nocelle felt like it was made just for us. If you're looking for a sensational view, in a quiet out of the way place- look no further. However, if you need to be in the thick of the beach crowd and tourist scene- stay closer to Positano, but definitely find time to come up the mountain and visit.
Hote Le Agavi was an amazing experience - -stunningly located on several level of a hillside overlooking the bay of Positano. It is a short drive into the main part of town (free shuttle service provided), and being just outside of the thick of things is a real treat. You feel is as you are part of a quiet retreat just moments away from a fun resort town. The hotel has a private beach (accessible via their own funicular); and the breakfast buffet is amazing. The staff is extremely helpful -- they speak excellent English; they gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants (and made the reservations for us), and guided through the process of buing ticket for a commuter boat to the town of Amalfi. This place is a dream within the dream that is the Amalfi Coast!
Miramare is a very beautiful hotel to stay. You are warmly welcomed by such lovely ladies on arrival. The position is so perfect. My room had a terrace overlooking the ocean which was just breathtaking. The cleanliness and service of the rooms were above and beyond. Also the breakfast room and service here was also so good.
My only issue was my calf muscles were so sore climbing the stairs to get there so many times!!! So if that is my only complaint I would have to say overall Miramere was an absolute pleasure. I would definitely come back.

The hotel is in a great location make sure you plan ahead though as you cannot reach the hotel by car. There is some cobblestone walk ways. They do have porters if planned in advance.
I was disappointed in my room. It was a good size for Italy but the bed was so hard I could not get comfortable. There were no windows just french doors with shutters on the outside which is the only way to lock the door so if your door is locked the room is dark. There were no comfortable chairs in the room.
I know people who have stayed here and loved it I think it is a matter of where your room is.

Perched on the top of the forward mountain in Positano (splitting the two halves of the city), the view from the pool, dining patio, and breakfast room is unbelievable. Rooms have breathtaking views from their own balconies, too. Spectacular restaurant on-site.
Rooms/doorways are far from "soundproof" and we heard hallway activities early in the morning. Jacuzzi tub didn't work in the room, and there is a wide spectrum of knowledge and helpfulness amongst the small front desk/concierge staff. Wireless was inconsistent, went out each time there was an afternoon storm.
Still, the hotel was incredible, and we would definitely go back to Positano and Villa Franca.
A desirably picturesque tourist haunt, Moorish-style houses cling to Positano’s steep hillsides. It’s a pleasant walk down to the small grey beach and fishing harbour via narrow, flower-decked alleyways and steps, but the return journey takes some effort (luckily there’s a bus). A domed church is Positano’s main landmark. The town celebrates the Feast of the Assumption on 15th August by re-enacting a famous victory against the Saracens.
