This was our second time at ISP. The first time was perfect so wasn't sure this time they could keep up with that level of perfection. They did. The service was perfect in every occasion, from the parking upstairs to reception to breakfast and beach. This year we were on honeymoon and when they knew it (when i made the... More

We spent one night in the hotel after our week boat trip along the coast. It is our third time in Il San Pietro and I believe that the hotel is the best in the region with exceptional service and fantastic views. Michelin star restaurant their is very testy with a lot of fantasy from the chief.

Our stay at San Pietro was truly spectacular. We worked with our travel agent (Four Hundred) to confirm dates that worked perfect with our itinerary. This hotel is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful in the world. We found the daily boat trip (complimentary) to be extraordinary. The staff and management are true hosts and are the epitome...

This is the best property in Positano. Absolutely stunning views, excellent service and 10 minutes from Positano. The property has it's own grotto to swim in, a boat available to charter and a pool on the upper floors. Built into the cliff-side with a lift that runs through the rock to a private beach and Oceanside dinning

I've been to the il San Pietro every Summer the past three years and never once did it disappoint! It is very rare for a hotel with such a unique location and consistently rated the best hotel in Amalfi coast if not the world and not becoming complacent. It just keeps on improving in every aspect and is superbly maintained... More

We have just returned from our annual Southern Italian pilgrimmage which included our 12th stay at Il San Pietro - we go every other year. From the moment of arrival on a cliff top with glorious views, burgeoning bougainvillea and manicured gardens to the languid elegance of the lounge and reception, and your ooooh!! as you enter your room or...

This was our third stay at the San Pietro. This time we brought our family. The hotel is very sophisticated but comfortable, warm and welcoming at the same time. In this regard it strikes a perfect balance. The views are spectacular. The hotel itself is beautiful and personal, public rooms, dining room, terraces, beach area, pool area and rooms, all... More

This was our third stay at Il San Pietro in 6 years. This is a wonderful property with amazing staff, fantastic facilities and the views which are second to none. Everything is taken care off... almost before you ask. Staff is genuinely friendly and tries really hard to accommodate each and every request. We always stay in a De Luxe... More

I stayed here for my honeymoon. The overall theme of great views and service are spot-on. Our room had a nice little terrace and a large bathroom with views outside. The breakfast in the morning was great and coupled with the view made the experience amazing. Everything about the hotel makes you feel like you're staying in an old school,... More

Tremendous location, service and hospitality. The Hotel does not come cheap nor is one for those you want everything brand new. The charm of the place is its style which is old school Italian. Anything you want or need is provided by high quality staff. Being out of Positano is a huge bonus in the busy months. One complaint. We... More
