Le Agavi Hotel, Positano

It's a long time since we did this tour but I am almost 100 percent sure this is the hotel where it's the luck of the draw on rooms. We happened to get a huge room with two bathrooms, one of which you could sit on the loo right in front of a full length window and look at the view. We still talk about that room, years later! Other people's rooms were varied. Tauck clearly uses this hotel for the spectacular views and good staff, so clearly it is what I call Tauck standard. Italian hotels are often small family run hotels and that is all part of the charm. For those views I think it is acceptable for the rooms to have a certain charm. As long as they are clean and comfortable, a smaller room would have pleased us just as well, rather than a charmless large hotel in a less spectacular location. I am sure Tauck balances this experience with 'better' hotels on the remainder of the tour, but I only remember the one in Capri as clearly. I strongly feel that unless anyone has taken maybe 10 varied tours with Tauck, it is hard to know what Tauck Stamdard in hotels is all about.
