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

It was last part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. Since we walked in to hotel, the front desk greeted us with such a pleasant smile, showed us everything and took us up to our room. Location is really nice and has a gorgeous view. We stayed for 6 nights and our experience was nothing but amazing. Delicious breakfast every... More

Situated in one of the most beautiful towns in the world, on the slopes halfway up the hillside, this hotel goes the extra distance to make your visit perfect. The swimming pool is brilliant after a hot day trip to Amalfi, Capri or Sorrento. Sipyour Aperol Spritzer on the terrace and gaze down at the amazing view of the town,... More

The Hotel Poseidon offers not only a spectacular view of Positano, but provides guests with the most gracious staff one could imagine. Every staff member beginning with Antonio at the front desk who upgraded us to a suite (because of our horrendous flight to Rome) and including Beba (an absolute sweetheart), Luca, Giancarlo, and all others provides us with exemplary...

Special mention for Beba the waitress, very attentive, and didn't mind my bad Italian when ordering. We had a piano player with lady singer on... More

This must be one the most romantic hotels to stay with superb views. The terrace is a beautiful place to have dinner and breakfast or a drink by the pool. The hotel is quiet with no noisy guests. We stay at The Poseidon a few years ago, however I will never forget the skill of the chef de patisserie who... More
