This hotel is amazing. Driving by this hotel, you would never know it was there. When you reach the property, you are escorted to an elevator which takes you DOWN the cliff side to the lobby for check in. Everything is lush and amazing 180 degree views of the Mediterranean off the cliff side. There is a rooftop pool but... More

We stayed end of September 2015. An awesome place. Set high in the cliffs overlooking Positano. Very similar hotel to the Chèvre D'Or in Eze. Food is excellent, rooms are beautiful, service 1st class. Parking and free shuttle into town and back available anytime, just call the reception. We usually took lunch at the beach. ( not really a beach... More

We spent the third leg of our honeymoon here and wished we were there longer! It is by far the most breathtaking hotel on the Amalfi Coast, and other guests commented that it's their favorite hotel in the world! After spending three nights in the "sunset room," we must agree. From the man made beach at the bottom of the... More

This hotel is breathtaking! We pulled into a small parking lot where we were greeted immediately by attentive staff. We walked down a beautiful walkway to an elevator in the hillside which took us down to the lobby. Our rooms overlooked the water and were spacious, luxurious and clean. It truly is one of the most beautiful hotels we have... More

This is now our favorite place and hotel in the world. Words cannot describe how fabulous our experience was at the beautiful San Pietro di Positano. We went on a couple of excursions, but were always happiest when we came "home" to the hotel. The staff was warm and personable. The hotel incredibly beautiful. The property magical.

Staying a while at the San Pietro in Positano almost qualifies as a bucket list item - yes, it is that special. Perched off of the Amalfi Coast road with picturesque views of the Mediterranean and Positano, it nestles into the cliff side in subdued charm. Decor is Med white with bright ceramics and fine furnishings. Excellent dining options at... More

We used to travel to San Pietro regularly, however this year was the first when we only came for dinner, as we arrived on a yacht and it just reminded us how fabulous the lifestyle there is.
