Returning to the Hotel Poseidon with my family was a wonderful birthday present! Though we could only stay 4 nights this time instead of 7, the relaxing ambiance of each day at Poseidon made it seem marvelously longer. Understated elegance, courtly service to meet your every need, pleasantly and unobtrusively. A room with a balcony is a must. The breakfast... More

Stayed here in July all the good things said about this hotel are 100% true a wonderful place. Would just like to mention how caring & compassionate all the staff are, Margherita in particular. Unfortunately whilst staying at the Poseidon my wife's father was stuck down with a critically serious illness back in the UK, and we had to return... More

My wife and I stayed here in May while we were in Positano to get married. The staff were outstanding and made a spectacular effort to make sure we had a great time - we were even allowed to borrow their white classic VW Beetle to use as our wedding car. The hotel is lovely, with a fantastic terrace for... More

The place to stay in Positano if you want a hotel instead of a cute B and B. The Poseidon has the best pool area in Positano, with stylish furnishings giving it a Moroccan feel at night. The views are sublime over the coast below and the staff are very helpful. This is more stylish than Buca di Bacco, and... More

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
