Just got back from our first in time in Positano and in Italy and we could not have picked a more PERFECT hotel. From the minute you arrive at this boutique hotel, you feel welcome.

This hotel is located about half way up the hill, so there is lots of walking - it is 255 stairs down to the beach. But it is not as far up as other hotels, so whilst the walk back up the hill is a bit of a climb, it's not as bad as for some. If you are too... More

When the staff treats you like family, you know you are going to have a great stay. We were welcomed by Margarita at the from desk and she made us feel as if we were coming home. This family owned and operated hotel has a warm European feel. Exactly what we were looking for for our honeymoon and our first... More

We have just spent 5 nights at the Poseidon and enjoyed every minute. Lovely location with fabulous views - romantic in the evenings. Good food always - breakfasts were excellent with so much choice, lunches very tasty and dinners were good too. Drinks always came served with nice nibbles. Comfortable room with character - we did in fact change room... More

We stayed here for two nights this past August (2014). Our room was small with a double bed but had a nice view of the Positano hillside and Mediterranean. The biggest showstopper was the "attack of the ants" that occured shortly after we get settled. Management explained that they couldn't change us to another room since the hotel was completely...

What a great find by chance. A traditional & beautiful run family hotel. In a fabulous location, where you can easily walk down the steps or road to the beach or just around a corner to a great restaurant. All staff are very friendly and do everything to ensure you have a terrific holiday. Only improvement would be to their... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights with our young baby. The hotel was lovely, really clean and the view over the town at breakfast is stunning. The staff were so lovely and helpful with us having a baby. They had set up a cot for us in our room before we arrived and stored our pushchair for us... More
