My husband and I stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon, it was outstanding! It certainly was not cheap, but I could die happy relaxing on the rooftop salt water pool at the hotel. The entire facade of Positano is to your left, you see the beach below, cliffs and Praiano in the distance and the open ocean... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Got dropped off by ferry right out front. Didn't need to tug all our luggage up the steep Positano cliffside. Excellent location near shops, restaurants, beach, and ferry. Great breakfast. Wonderful staff. Room and shower were very small, but they did the job. Bed can be a little more comfortable. Amazing experience in Positano. Would... More

My husband and I just returned from a 30 day trip to Europe that included 5 nights at Covo Dei Saracini. We reserved a standard ocean view room hoping for an upgrade since it was near the end of their season and the price was quite fair for a 5 star property. There was no upgrade (unless we wanted to...

this hotel is as close to the water as you can get. the views are fantastic: looking out the balcony, to the right is the ocean & to the left is the rest of Positano - you basically get a view of the entire town, from the bottom up - similar to all the photos & paintings you see of... More

We booked last minute for a 3 night stay on our Honeymoon. The price was very reasonable which is why we chose this place. The service was great. We checked in and were given first class service all the way to our room including champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. The hotel made us 2 dinner reservations while we were there.... More

We had lunch at Covo Dei Saraceni's outdoor restaurant on our day trip to Positano. We travelled by ferry from Piazza Concordia in Salerno via Amalfi (12€ p.p. one way), a comfortable and scenic ride. The vegetarian pizza was hot and fresh, the draught beer cold and fresh lemon drink refreshing. We had the Sorbetto Limone (inside of the large... More

Contacted hotel in February thru their web site, requesting a 2 night stay in July. I received an email reply, indicating that they did not have availability for one of the dates I requested. I replied that unfortunately the alternate date would not work with our schedule. I returned home from a two week trip Europe, to find a letter... More

We stayed here for a weeks honeymoon and it was simply sublime! We had booked a junior suite with private terrace with a premium sea view. We were on floor 3, which we later found out was the refurbished floor that was decorated in an über chic style. We were overjoyed with the design and space and the room was... More

Initially the walk from the parking lot to the premises seems a bit long, but later I realized this is an old town, and if I want to get to the beach this will be the only way. They certainly have everything figured out right to the detail. The porter has been there waiting for our luggage. We just walk... More
