This was our first visit and we could tell why many of those who were staying there seem to have come back year after year. The views over the bay are magnificent and the service is truly superb with nothing seeming to be too much trouble. The food is also very special and our last night having dinner on the... More

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!!

The nicest hotel I have ever stayed at. Top notch luxury. Simply breath taking! Evening wine on the patio was a great way to start an evening out in Positano. I look forward to my next vacation there. I will stay nowhere else. Till then, I will just have to dream of it.

Once a getaway for the rich and famous, today San Pietro is packed with mostly American tourists. But she's still got her mojo, and she still boasts privacy and comfort and the most spectacular view in all the Amalfi. Which is why you will want to make San Pietro your base --because even in late May and June, Positano and... More

Five minutes from the town of Positano this hotel offers you access to the sea. The pool, beach, spa and restaurants are all fantastic. The rooms are very large and have see views. The staff and service are excellent. The hotel offers a complimentary boat tour everyday but one which is also terrific. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area.

Thank you for your “amazing” review, Nancy S. We agree with you: the 2-hour cruise is a great experience our guests deserve. So no surprise if it is offered complimentary. More

My husband and I stayed at Il San Pietro in May this year after a few days in Rome. We pulled up to the hotel car park and the taxi driver said 'welcome to paradise'. We walked down the stairs, into the beautiful foyer and were immediately welcomed as if we were staying at the home of old friends. Our... More

We actually discovered this gem for just a few hours while cruising the cost on the way to Amalfi. A one hour stop at this hotel ended up in a full day of exceptional relaxation and appreciation of the unique settings. Comfort, view, food, service are a few words to summarize the overall experience

Every time a new list of best hotels comes out, I look to see if this one is on it. It hasn't been in years, but that is because new luxury hotels are being built all the time, and many people want to go only to new places. Well they are truly missing something wonderful. Il San Pietro should always... More
