Le Agavi Hotel Review
Hotel Le Agavi Positano Review – What You Need To Know:
If you’re looking for a more private, 5-star Positano getaway then the Le Agavi Hotel Positano is worth considering. It’s located outside the main town of Positano on the main street.
This hotel is quite special – built right into the cliffs and cascading down to it’s own private beach for guests to enjoy!
This 5-star hotel’s main entrance is at the top, near the road, with the rest of the rooms built below it, cascading down the mountain towards the beach. All of the rooms have their own terraces and stunning views of Positano, the coast and the water.
The rooms themselves are built so that their balconies don’t line up exactly on top of each other. This gives you a bit more privacy and also makes for an interesting view from up higher in the hotel. It also means you may need a couple of different elevators to get to your room – which might be confusing until you get the hang of it.
The hotel is located just outside of Positano – about a 15-minute drive from the center town of Positano itself. Le Agavi provides a free shuttle to take you into town that runs about every hour.
You can also take a taxi (just make sure to agree on a price up front because it should usually only cost you 10 Euros – not 20 Euros as some people have been charged!)
Another great thing about this hotel?
You get a stunning private pool with waterfall and jacuzzi where you can relax with a drink or a snack and soak up the incredible views of the Amalfi coast and the town. There’s of course the private beach too – which can be great especially on holidays (when the main beach of the Spiaggio Grande tends to be overrun).
The rooms at this hotel are spacious and clean. The decorating is typical old world style and fairly basic. But what you’re really paying for are the million-dollar views of the cliffs, the water and the Amalfi coast. You may never even want to leave your balcony, the views are really that incredible!
There is private parking on site, which makes it convenient if you’re driving yourself. There is no reservation needed for parking – however there is a small daily charge, even if you’ve booked a stay at the hotel.
Wifi is available in the rooms and common areas for a surcharge as well.
A traditional Italian buffet breakfast is included with your stay and includes the standard favorites like eggs, fruit, croissant, ham, yogurts, pastries, cold cereals and coffee/cappuccino.
Other amenities include what you’d expect for a 5 star hotel including airport shuttle (fee), room service, 24-hour front desk, currency exchange, tour desk, laundry, dry cleaning, meeting-banquet facilities, business center, fax/photocopying, and bridal suite.
There are also 3 bars and 2 restaurants where you can get a variety of fresh seafood, Italian favorites or just a great cappuccino.
The staff can help you with anything you need including local tours, boat times, things to do, places to shop and eat. They can also arrange a shuttle/car from the airport or rail station for you as well as any wedding/bridal needs you have.
Le Agavi is a stunning hotel with a unique luxury twist. It’s not every day you can say that you stayed at a hotel carved into the cliffs of the Amalfi coast!
The views from the rooms are breathtaking. And the private beach and pool offer a luxurious-style getaway from the tourists and shopping craziness of Positano town.
If you’re looking to stay in the heart of Positano, then this is not your hotel since it’s outside the main town portion. But if you’re looking for a 5 star retreat that gives you the celebrity treatment, this hotel is well worth considering!
