WOW where do I start – the San Pietro in my opinion is up there with the best. The hotel sits perfectly on the edge cliff face and reminds me of something you would expect to see out of a James Bond movie. The hotel oozes so much elegance and class – my wife and I absolutely loved our 5... More

Simply breathless. This Hotel is carved in the rocks. The view is simply amazing. There is also a direct access from the sea. The only problem we had had is the room....water was dripping in the ceiling light , impossible to sleep and also dangerous . Asked to change the room but apparently impossible as the hotel was fully booked.... More

With its amazing position, enormous rooms, perfect service and great facilities Il San Pietro is possibly the best hotel in Italy . A member of Relais Chateaux , this magical property has the most iconic terrace in the Amalfi Coast overlooking the sea and Positano itself from the distance . Why 5 stars???? This hotel provides one of the best... More

The Hotel Il San Pietro di Positano has got to be one of the finest hotels in the world. The view from every room is exceptional, the restaurants are incredible. If you are unable to stay here (there are only 62 rooms) definitely take the time to get dressed up and come here for a glass of prosecco at the... More

In the last 10 years, we have stayed here more than 10 times. This is simply the best Hotel in Italy, service is perfect, Food great, room's outstanding, and the views are to die for. If you are rich or just want to be treated that way, this is the place to go. We will be back soon.

If you have stayed there then you know what I am talking about and if you are planning your first trip to Positano then this should save you the time and hassle to find the best place to stay. Il San Pietro can not be beat, the location is superb, only 3 mins away from town (they provide free transportation)... More

Incredible hotel. Daily complimentary boat ride for swimming in the sea. The hotel has its own gardens and the food is more than fresh and delicious. Incredible views from every room in the hotel. Service was impeccable. We went for a birthday and seemingly every staff member knew when we mentioned our room number. We were given Champagne and cakes... More

What a great pleasure to have chosen the best place to stay in Positano I visited the hotel with my sister and a close friend. We stayed for 3 nights. It was our first time in the Amalfi Coast. I feel fortunate to have discovered this destination which is a real jewelry. The Hotel location is simply fascinating, with the... More

Stayed for a week in early October, 2014. The "season" ends here in late October and the hotel closes, but the last few weeks are usually very, very nice. Less crowded, often ( but not always) better weather, and generally very peaceful. What they sell here is luxury,wrapped up in tasteful elegance, all in a comfortable resort style. The service...
