This tiny unpretentious hotel on the outskirts of Positano beckons with bougainvillea-laden views, castaway cottages, and a turquoise seawater pool—all perched over a private beach. Thanks to the wonderful family of owner, Constantino Mandara, you'll feel right at home in a few minutes—because this is their home. Guest rooms with coved ceilings, whitewashed walls, and native folk art are simple havens of tranquillity and comfort. Some are in a house above the
road (a bit noisy if trucks rumble by, but this rarely happens at night); others are in adorable cottages close to the sea. Very steep, arbor-covered walkways zigzag across the hill, linking these little acres of heaven.

We stayed here 3 nights after a week in Positano and would like to come back with other family members and stay longer. The cove & beach are beautiful, rooms by the salt-water pool are ideal for families, a great place to relax, it's a shorter, easier walk to the center of town than most places in town, and La Fenice is family owned and very friendly. A great place. -Don Williams
