The absolute gem of Positano with the perfect location. Right by the pier for quick excursions to nearby towns. All restaurants and shops are a few steps away. Beautiful rooms with Italian designer toiletries by Etro. Our room had a magnificent terrace overlooking the beach. Rooms are spotless. The 5th floor pool is gorgeous. A true 5 Star hotel.

This hotel was the last stop on a two week vacation in Italy, and it was the perfect way to end our vacation! We were able to relax, sit by the pool, or on our balcony and enjoy a drink while taking in the amazing view! The hotel staff was fantastic and the rooms were very clean and well kept.... More

This was our second time at this hotel in four years. Pros: best location in town, great pool and poolside restaurant, next to the dock for quick excursions to Capri and other towns on the coast, gelato cafe on site, and most rooms have excellent views. I think the service was better this time around as all of the staff... More

In real estate the saying goes "Location, Location, Location" well this hotel truly is in the best location of Positano. One of the few hotels right on the beach, one of the few hotels with it's own pool, and one of the few hotels conveniently located next to the pier, shopping, groceries, duomo and everything else you could possible want...

Let me start by saying that I have stayed in Positano 5 times over the past 6 years and I had always wanted to stay at Covo dei Saraceni once I saw it! I have stayed at the two high end hotels in the area and loved them both, but THIS hotel is a real gem - it is the... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights on our honeymoon. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They made dinner reservations for us and helped us navigate our way through Positano. The location of the hotel is wonderful as your'e a close walk to everything. The views are also incredible. The pool area, while on the smaller side... More

Absolutely loved this hotel, it's charming as are the people who staff it. Our room was fabulous but the view was simply and utterly stunning. The place isn't at all pretentious, it's comfortable from the pool to the restaurant, which by the way, is excellent. We didn't have to battle with the stairs and no request was too much trouble....

My husband and I stayed at Covo Dei Saraceni for five days during our honeymoon, and we could not have had a better experience. The staff were like family- even when we requested a 3:00 AM snack from room service after two flights, a train and a car ride to get to Positano. We had a Junior Suite with a... More

This hotel is in a great location, it is right on the water. It appeared to be the closest hotel to the water, which is great because it was not a 15 min hike from the beach back to the room. While it is true that you have to walk from the top of the hill down to the hotel,... More
