Our stay at hotel Poseidon was average I would say. There were some amazing things and there were some not so amazing things. Firstly, the service is outstanding. The people at the pool and the front desk are extremely courteous and gracious, and they are always trying to help if they can. The location and view from the pool area... More

I've stayed at the Poseiden 2x over a time span 30 years - and Both experiences were pleasant and memorable. You stay at the Poseiden for ONRPE Reason only, and that is for the panoramic Positano views of steep hillsides & the Mediterranean. Best hotel view point in Positano, in my opinion. Get a 4th floor room with the loooog... More

We have stayed twice at this hotel,with a sea view, lovely balcony and had breakfast on the terrace each morning. It is very special with great views and lovely food. The staff were very accommodating and we had a magical stay. The pool looked lovely but we didn't venture in as it was early in the season. A great choice... More

We booked this hotel months in advance and it has lived up to our expectations. Very helpful staff helped us organise local excursions. Our room had an amazing outlook over the Mediterranean Sea. European showers took a bit of getting used to. Local guide, Frank, was very knowledgeable and the impromptu Saturday afternoon cooking exhibition he organised at the hotel... More

We loved our time at Hotel Poseidon. It is a historical hotel and every detail of the place seems almost like a nod to Positano history, style and lifestyle. We enjoyed our room on the fourth floor and loved the amazing pool terrace and bar. It was so chic without trying too hard. The staff was amazing and we will... More

Having never previously visited Positano before, I did not understand the "cons" of staying in hotel that is "up" the hill. It is a hike. I mean a HIKE to get from the center of town or the beach up to this hotel. A bus takes forever. And a taxi is prohibitively expensive. So, if you have any ambulatory issues,... More

Pillows are awful. Reminds me of my grandmas place 50 years ago in the village. Forget the TV. You can't even see it without binoculars Shower leaked every... More

While in the Amalfi Coast for four nights, we had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Poseidon. Mostly this was a really pleasant experience with only a few drawbacks. The pros: The public areas of the hotel were well-maintained and featured an eclectic mix of antiques and tchotchke. They offered nearly nightly entertainment right at the hotel and had... More
