Eleonora picked-up us from the train, & the apartment is in the hills, a good 10 minutes by car, without traffic, to the Town Center, so not able to come and go as you would like.
The view from the apartment pictured on Airbnb, is nice, open the doors to the terrace & there is a strong smell of urine, the smell is worse with hot weather. Eleonora has 10-20 cats, a dog and two rabbits.
The house has other apartments attached, 1 to the left, and 1 above, Eleonora and her family & father live. Evenings at our apartment, could hear walking & people talking from the apartment above, and continued past 10:00pm & 11:00pm.
The bedroom with the view, smelled of cooking from the attached apartments, into the evenings, and when time to go to sleep, at 10:00pm &11:00pm. Not pleasant.
Eleonora repeatedly told us not to buy tickets at the Port, that her dad Alberto would take care of us, he is a tour guide, over 20 yrs, & a boss, people working for him. We understood that Alberto had discounted, or complimentary boat tickets for Capri. We did buy at the Port One-tickets to Capri at full price, 2 adults 2 kids for Euro $57.60. Eleanor and Albert said to join Alberto’s tour group on Capri, which we did, & neither Elenora or Alberto, her father told us his tour did not include the Blue Grotto.
Alberto took his tour group to a restaurant on Capri & Alberto said he would give us a “Special Price”. The bill for lunch was $61.00 Euro, & my husband & I were surprised, for 2 adults/2 kids. Not offered a kids menu. My husband took the bill to Alberto and asked why the bill was $61.00 Euro’s & asked what is the Special Price is? Alberto said that the $61 Euro is the Special Price. The restaurant and tourists ALL get this “Special Price”. Alberto was not honest & misled our family.
Alberto said to meet him at 5:30pm at the boat dock & he will take care of our boat tickets from Capri to Sorrento. We met Alberto at the boat on Capri and Alberto gave us tickets for the boat to Sorrento. At the apartment, Alberto took the $68.00 Euro from us, which is the full price for the boat tickets. We did not realize until after we left Sorrento that the $68 Euro was for 4 Adults! Alberto made a lot of Euro’s off our family. Why would Eleanor and Alberto tell us NOT to buy the boat tickets at the Port, and pay the full price of $68 Euro to Alberto for the boat tickets??? Eleanora and Alberto we not honest or trust worthy & took advantage of our family with both the boat tickets and the “Special Price” of the lunch. With this, and the issues with the apartment, we would not stay with Eleanor or her father again. From Positano can visit Capri.
