Uninvited guests

Pros: Staff was polite and the breakfast was good. View was excellent and the room was pretty clean for a European hotel. Bed was very comfortable.
Cons: Internet speed, try to get rid of the ants, scrub the grout in the bathroom tile, get the air conditioner to stop running when we were out of the room
Location: Positano is a beautiful place, lots of shops and a nice beach with OK swimming. LOTS of restaurants that are above expectation. Bring walking shoes!
First, let me start by saying that overall the stay was a pleasant experience. That being said there were good and bad parts. The good; the room was comfortable and reasonably clean. Bed was surprisingly comfortable considering we were in Europe and all amenities were there minus a coffee maker and bottled water both of which would have been nice. Internet worked albeit slowly (as in turtle slow) but that is normal for that region. The staff were very helpful and polite in all cases even when receiving bad news as listed below. Now for the bad; Ants, marching everywhere. If you have never been to Positano then you are probably unaware that everywhere in that town they are ever present. Every place I have ever stayed they have an ongoing battle with ants and are usually either stalemate or loosing. This place is loosing. Noise! this room (number 25) in this hotel is noisy. Every evening until midnight they serve dinner directly above this room which ruins any thoughts of romance with the balcony open. At about 7-7:30 in the morning the staff would rearrange the furniture in this dining area. That translated to noise through the ceiling that was an effective wake up call. Bring earplugs if you want to sleep past 7:30 if you are in this room. Additionally the noise in the hallway is deafening. The air conditioner was filthy when we checked in and was promptly cleaned when we complained but this kind of thing should not be something we need to complain about.
