I can't say enough about how lovely our stay was at this hotel. My son got married in Positano in June 2014. We had the reception here and stayed here. The food was perfect and they worked with us to make sure everyone was happy. It was outside on the patio and the atmosphere was just so amazing. The service... More

We have visited the Hotel Poseidon on five occassions over the past 14 years and it has lost none of its charm and beauty. From the welcome at reception to the wonderful service in the bar and restaurant this is an outstanding hotel. Then there is its position, sitting halfway up the side of the town it has a breathtaking... More

We stayed at The Poseidon for 3 nights while traveling with friends. I like to call this our shabby chic hotel. It is charming, romantic, and comfortable. Our room was large with a beautiful balcony and the most breathtaking views. The staff at the front desk was very good. They were all very helpful anytime of day or night. Location... More

We spent 3 nights here, our friends staying in the room next door actually, and I have to say that the moment we stepped out onto the balcony of our room, it literally took our breath away. The views are incredible, the hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the location was perfect for walking around to shop or going... More

This is a charming hotel. We stayed with our kids in adjoining rooms (interconnecting doors) with a lovely view of Positano and the beach. The rooms are on the smaller side and not particularly updated; however, they are very clean and have a vintage charm. Each room had a nice patio with a chase lounge, table and chairs. The pool...

We spent four nights at the Hotel Poseidon in May of 2014 and had an excellent experience. The accommodations and service were outstanding. All staff were extremely helpful and gracious. The hotel is owned and operated by a wonderful family. The location of the facility and the views from the hotel are incredible. If and when we visit Positano again,... More

All the staff was wonderful and... More

If you've never been to Positano, it truly is a marvel. Great spot. My wife and I really enjoyed Hotel Poseidon. The major Pros: very nice pool terrace overlooking the city and water; terrific buffet breakfast; the welcoming and accommodating staff. Biggest Cons: oof...getting there...once inside Positano you're on a one-way, windy road with scooters constantly passing you; the hotel... More

The staff were very helpful and courteous, the view was fantastic and we really liked the restaurant and the live music. The location was great, too. Not to mention the elevator, reportedly the oldest in Positano and still working great ! but there are also stairs if you prefer.

We wanted were a romantic getaway after a hectic few months and this was the perfect spot for us. The hotel is family owned and the staff is attentive to every detail. The family's personal touch is evident throughout the property. You spot it as soon as you lay eyes on the vintage Volkswagen bug parked outside the entrance. (Guests... More
