After running around Rome, Naples and the seashore of Positano, it was a pleasant surprise to find the Poseidon…truly a retreat in the mountains with the most amazing views of Positano. The beach area was great, but being up high, we found even better. And the cafes and restaurants on top were wonderful…. We had excursions each day and came... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Poseidon! The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. The location is perfect- steps away from town and about a 10 minute walk from the beach. The views are beyond amazing. I would definitely return!!

We arrived at Poseidon after an early flight and were invited to breakfast on the terrace until our room was ready - what an introduction! The views are incredible, the terrace is shaded and gorgeous, overlooking the main town and adjacent to the pool, and the breakfast buffet is worth setting your alarm for if you tend to sleep late....

WOW. I've visited a lot of places in the world, but Positano takes the cake - what a beautiful town. Hotel Poseidon is a fantastic place to experience it. Our room had a private balcony with a view to die for. The staff were friendly and accommodating for all our needs - from restaurant bookings to getting some pants tailored.... More

We found this Bar one evening, it was stunning. The service was fantastic. We had a table with the most beautiful views in Italy. The pool twinkled under the moonlight and Positano looked stunning. Best prosecco in town! Snacks served with drinks were amazing. We made friends with Lillianna who taught us so much about the area - she was... More

I was traveling around Italy during a week long vacation. While I enjoyed the group I was traveling with, after long hours from a stressful job, all I wanted to do was unpack and settle in a place for a while. On a whim I booked Hotel Poseidon the night before my stay begin knowing pretty much nothing about the... More

Positano is probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. This hotel was in a great location and was a fabulous hotel overall! A quick 5 minute walk down stairs to Spiaggia Grande, which is such a beautiful beach! Ensure you take your towels down as well as $12.50 Euro for umbrella. The food down by the... More

Hotel is nice -- classic like many hotels in Positano. Do not expect "modern" rooms or furnishings. Bathrooms are dated as well. The views are excellent, the front desk staff is exceptional and friendly, and the pool and rooftop lounge is very nice. Breakfast is included and is basic but nice. WiFi works well.

Hotel Poseidon was a romantic gem located in the most beautiful place on earth. The rooms were simplistic and beautiful, but the balcony was the best part- that view was spectacular! The staff were so friendly and we can credit them for our dining selections. This stay added to our wonderful honeymoon experience in the Amalfi coast.
