This location was simply perfect. Walking distance to everything, gorgeous views and clean rooms with comfortable beds (albeit a bit noisy from other rooms). I totally agree that breakfast was boring and a waste of a gorgeous view. The daily scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and potatoes and a carb-fest of pastries were not up to the standard of the hotel.... More

Don't be afraid to drive to Positano! We rented a car and drove from Rome. Once you get out of Rome it's very simple. Only 2 different highways that are very smooth and easy to navigate. Just call the hotel to see which parking lot to use once you arrive. We parked in a lot slightly up the hill. It... More

This has the potential to be a great hotel but there is no passion for excellence here. Because they have such a great location they are somewhat complacent. We struggled the whole time with lack of Internet. The breakfast was the same every day and after 6 nights that's boring. We paid a lot of money per night and admittedly... More

First I may say, 2 weeks before the trip..they bumped us from staying all 4 nights..they needed the room for another guest our last night. Didn't exactly leave a wonderful taste in my mouth for this hotel. It did work out beautifully because we went to Ravello and that was wonderful...that's another review. The hotel was lovely..my room was not... More

Every time we leave this hotel we want to go back again. Had several different rooms and each had a different view and the room was traditional to modern and can't decide which we liked the best. Very clean, housekeeping service is better than more expensive hotels we stayed at. They replace everything at once and you don't even know... More

Still the best location in Positano. The Hotel is classically beautiful and because of its location the best access to the beaches, water taxis and most importantly an easy walk home down the steps after Dinner or daytime exploring. This is my 6th visit to the Hotel and I'd still recommend it. We had a few issues that worked out... More

We were given an upgrade to a wonderful suite that has it's own hot tub. The room was beautiful, renovated, and extremely clean. The staff were extremely friendly and always ensured our stay was going well. The pool is beautiful and has a wonderful view of the sea. The breakfast was extremely delicious! Loved it!

Like the last reviewer I'm also currently at the Covo and don't believe a word of what they've posted! I actually think I know who they are - they shouldn't stay in 5 star resorts in the Amalfi Coast perhaps Disneyland would be more appropriate? The hotel is stunning, the staff are incredibly attentive and our room is amazing with... More

The Covo Dei Saraceni is a beautiful boutique hotel located right on the water in Positano. As we opened the door to our room we looked out through the balcony window and saw the beautiful Amalfi Coast and all the boats in the Sea. Our spacious room with a balcony exceeded our expectations in every way. Opening the balcony doors... More

Currently staying at the Covo Dei Sarencia (typing this from the lobby) and looking to find an alternative hotel to spend the rest of my stay at. Rooms haven't been renovated in several years, that's not the issue. Our room was filthy, covered in hair. We had to have maid service come 3 separate times before it was even adequate.... More
