I have stayed in some of the most amazing hotels, but HSP was one of the most incredible. It was the cleanest hotel I have ever seen - the tile floors were buffed to a shine every morning and night. The restaurant and bar have incredible views. It was spacious and quiet - the hotel was rather full (as evidenced... More

The title of this post does not come close to describing Il San Pietro. We have been going to this paradise holiday home away from home for 9 years and each time it gets better. This hotel and its location and staff that pamper you and know and remember your fussy preferences are the best in the world and the... More

Words do not begin to describe the natural beauty of this hotel. Built into a cliff, it offers breathtaking views of the sea, Positano and the surrounding area. The private beach is unique and incredible. The service is true five star European elegance. The staff is attentive and friendly. A beautiful and one of a kind resort. If given the... More

I recently stayed at San Pietro during my wedding and honeymoon in Positano. My husband and I are avid travelers and this was by far, the most incredible place we have ever been. From the service, to the food, to the ambiance, every detail was top notch. A special thank you to Andrea and Vito for their extra attention. This... More

Jane S perfectly sums up this charming and understated hotel where the return of so many guests year after year bears witness to its charms and superior levels of service. From the time you arrive to the time you leave, nothing is too much trouble to organise or arrange and its the small subtle touches which make all the difference.... More

My husband and I have had the good fortune of staying at many top hotels throughout the world but this was our first time at Il San Pietro di Positano. This hotel was one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful place we've ever stayed. The hotel sits atop a cliff overlooking the water near to the town... More

Thank you Ordonez87 for your review and for giving us a chance to explain that many rules at Il San Pietro have been developed over the years upon guests’ needs and requests. We agree with you that many people are elegant in shorts or short-sleeved shirts but that doesn’t mean elegance to others. As many other rules at the hotel,... More

We have been to this hotel several times and hands down it is our favorite hotel in the world. The location is amazing and the hotel itself is breathtaking. The first time we went there we never left the property. The food is wonderful and the staff are delightful. Very romantic.

I've stayed at this hotel before and always enjoy it. We are very seasoned travelers and only like the best. Without a doubt this,in my opinion, is the best hotel in the world. Perfect views, perfect service and great rooms. There simply is nothing more they should do except not change!!
