My wife and I recently stayed at the Hotel Poseidon on our honeymoon, and I was extremely pleased with the service and staff. We were there for 5 nights. Upon our arrival the staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating. We were given a tour of the hotel and then brought to our rooms. The hotel itself has a certain "old... More

Positano is a busy little town set into the hillside with a single track road running through it with upmarket boutique shops and a range of restaurants. The road is filled all day with nose to tail crawling traffic making walking around a challenge at times. You have to be constantly aware of vehicles. The town is picturesque, colourful, and...

We could not have been happier with Hotel Poseidon! Being that this was our honeymoon, we wanted to find the perfect room in Positano. After an enormous amount of research, we narrowed our search to the Wow Room at Hotel Poseidon and the honeymoon suite at Villa Fiorentino. We went back and forth on the two - Poseidon seemed to...

This hotel was very good! The location is excellent as its a 5 minute walk to the beach and has a great view. The breakfast is awesome and delicious, the hotel has a nice pool and good service. The rooms could use an upgrade but not in bad condition at all.

This was our first time in Italy and in the Amalfi Coast. August is a very busy time in Positano because of not only the tourists, but Italians come and vacation here. We chose this hotel because they had two of our 'must have' requirements, a pool and an amazing view of the sea and town, while not being too... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon in July, and could not fault the place or staff! Our room was one of their balcony rooms, called a 'Funny room'. It was clean and exactly what we had looked for. It is well located for trips into the town and the pool area is perfect. We ate here on a couple of... More

My visits to this gem of a hotel span 35 years. The unfortunate necessity of business - getting known by many - does not diminish my desire to keep this little secret to myself. The only change in 35 years has been in the family who created it. Like us all, they have grown older and been added to (now... More

We booked two rooms in July and one of these had such an atrocious sewer smell we were obliged to double up in one room. The room we did occupy had a non-flushing toilet and despite repeated calls to the front desk and promises for a serviceman we accumulated two days of waste and no serviceman ever appeared. The following... More

This property is spectacular. The family that owns and operates the Poseidon hotel in breathtaking Positano possess a rare gift for details and unsurpassed hospitality. From the moment you arrive you feel like royalty and throughout our stay our every need was attended to no matter the significance of the request. The rooms are beautiful with an eclectic collection of... More
