Visiting Positano With The Children: The View From Hotel Eden Roc

What a crazy month I’ve had. I’ve been traveling a lot – sometimes with and sometimes without the children. This last trip was BY FAR the absolute best I’ve experienced yet. My entire family went to Italy! We spent most of our time in Positano (the Amalfi Coast). Our hotel of choice was the ‘Hotel Eden Roc‘. There are many, many cities to choose from while visiting the Amalfi coast – but I am TELLING YOU TO CHOOSE Positano. While Amalfi, Ravello and Praiano are beautiful cities of their own, Positano has the most to offer.

More on that in a bit – this one is just about the Hotel Eden Roc.

The staff speaks English – all of them. Every person you interact with is personable, friendly, and attentive. I did not see an employee walking around without a smile – not ONCE. It was such a wonderful atmosphere to return to each night.

The rooms were REALLY NICE. We had a junior suite because we brought along our children. There was a half wall divider between our two rooms. This was our space.

And this was our children’s space. Two twin beds with a television and the balcony. Bathroom was really large as well – though I didn’t photograph it because I was completely blind-sighted by… the view.

Watch this quick video. The attendent opened the doors, walked us outside and then pulled back so we could take it all in. It was magic. It was breathtaking. It was probably the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I put my camera down, took a step forward and just looked in silence. It was everything I had hoped Positano would be.

There are two dozen hotels to choose from, but if I were to return to Positano, I would choose the Hotel Eden Roc because I KNOW that they can promise me this again.

We were in Positano in March – so the pool was out of the question for us. However, we had lunch on the deck and really enjoyed being up there.

Of course our first meal was… PASTA! In my glory.

Each meal was handled in a different room which was nice. Lunch was always out on the deck.

Over the next few days, I will be posting lots and lots of information about traveling to Italy with the children. If you’ve ever wanted vacation with the kids but were afraid to do it – I will show you how easy it really was.

* this trip was sponsored by Sea Cuisine. I was on a mission to find the best seafood dishes that Italy had to offer. Over the next two weeks, I will do several write ups on Italian cuisine on their website. Be sure to check often!

  5. I wish I could get a paid trip to Italy to test seafood dishes and then blog about it! Some of my German relatives visited Positano a few years ago and they loved it. Why didn’t I go when I had the chance and was still living in Europe? It looks lovely!

  6. Wow! Love the view – Amalfi Coast is truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. Crazy amazing! So excited you got to do this trip with your family. xo

    I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE GOING TO POSITANO SHOULD STAY IN HOTEL EDEN ROC .. IT IS BY FAR THE CLEANEST, PRETTIEST, THE BEST FOOD AND THE OWNERS AND WORKERS ARE THE NICEST VERY GENUINE AND WONDERFUL. WE LOVED IT SO MUCH WE WANT TO GO BACK. THANK YOU TO ALL THE WAITERS FOR TAKING GREAT CARE OF OUR NEEDS … BACI.
