This hotel is a gem of gems. The grounds and public areas are straight out of a movie of another era. Everything is so well maintained and beautiful. The breakfast buffet is endless with selections, served on the terrace overlooking the sea. We had a wonderful dinner one night as well. The rooms face the water and are very comfortable.... More

We stayed at the Poseidon on our honeymoon and returned in August 2013 for our tenth wedding anniversary. It's still a beautiful hotel and the views were as stunning as we had remembered. This time we were able to afford a bigger room which was lovely with a great bathroom. I was slightly disappointed that despite telling the hotel we... More

This hotel is very well situated. It is in the middle of the hill, close to the shops and restaurant and the lower part of Positano where the church is. This is an old villa and has a quirky layout which added to its charm. We had to go upstairs, down a hallway lined with rooms and then out onto... More

What a fantastic Hotel to stay..Loved our room above the pool terrace...Great breakfasts on the terrace and the Hotel is just in the middle so the walk back from town up the main road was fine...the little beach around to the left from the main beach an extra bonus

We traveled to Sicily and Italy in September. Being a guest at the Poseidon was truly a pleasure! The warmth of the staff, the delicious food (we ate many meals there) and the location were truly a perfect fit for us. The rooms are so comfortable, the views are magnificent they almost don't look real. Samur, the most wonderful man... More

We stayed at Hotel Poseidon for our 3rd anniversary July 2013. This was our second time being in Positano since we were married there in 2010, but did not know about this hidden jewel. We booked last second and were lucky to get a room at the very top of the Hotel with a massive terrace and incredible breathtaking views.... More

I read a LOT of reviews of this hotel before booking, both on Hotels.com and Trip Advisor, and I was still a bit nervous when we arrived. What was I going to find?

We had a few friends recommend the Hotel Poseidon and we weren't disappointed. The service at the hotel was fantastic and the rooms were very clean. We recommend getting a seaside view as you will spend hours on your terrace drinking wine, eating cheese and enjoying the spectacular views of Positano. All I can say that,we will be going back...

Hotel is situated half way up the hill overlooking Positano and the bay. One of the only hotels with pool. The pool deck and restaurant/ bar located side by side was so relaxing. I highly recommend this hotel versus staying on the beach. You get to enjoy the view of Positano everyday. The rooms were big and bright. We had... More
