Very disappointed. Booked a standard room after seeing the nice photos on the hotel website. However, they gave us a room with a blocked view. All we could see from the window was the stairs of the next hotel!!!! The lady who showed us the room was not helpful. After walking around the hotel, we found that there are only... More

Stayed here with my husband and loved it. You get what you pay for and the service is great. We enjoyed the pool area and direct stairs to the beach. Definitely hire a porter to bring up your luggage for 8 Euro/bag as it is a walk from the beach if you arrive by boat. The TravelMar boat from Salerno... More

We have just stayed for 4 nights and we would definitely recommend this hotel. The views from the terraces are beautiful. The hotel is very well situated and an easy walk down to the centre and well placed for easy access to public transport for Amalfi/Sorrento etc. The hotel is well maintained and the staff very helpful. They made restaurant... More

Let me say something in advance: Positano is definitely a must for all Amalfi-Coast-Travelers, BUT please be aware that Positano is really attracting lots of tourists! Furthermore, the weather in Positano can get even hotter than in Amalfi, due to the location in a dry bay. We stayed at the Marincanto for only one night before leaving to Sorrento and... More

Myself and my partner were booked into this hotel as we were travelling on business for a wedding. The room was very clean! The scenery was breath taking and the buffet at breakfast certainly had a lot of variety. The hotel had nice entertainment and on our last night ,we'd enjoyed a live piano performance and treated ourselves to a... More

We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite upon arrival. The views from our private balcony were probably the best views in Positano, which overlook the entire town and ocean The hotel is about a 5 min walk into town, but being away from the "action" makes this hotel more unique, since the hotel is able to provide the guests...

My wife and I can't say enough about this hotel and its happy and helpful staff. In our opinion Positano is the gem of the Amalfi Coast and Marincanto is the gem of Positano. We stayed 5 nights in a spectacular room in the Villa to the left of the main building (looking towards the water)....beautiful garden patio overlooking the... More

The hotel was situated in a great location. Just a few minutes walk from the bus stations and town center. We had the superior double room, it came along with a balcony and the view was fantastic. There were also a lot of choices for breakfast in the morning, which was wonderful. I regret to say that our experience with... More

Spent 5 days at the Marincanto with our 2 kids aged 10 & 12. We fell in love with Positano and the Marincanto was a big reason why. The location is fabulous with abundant sea views. 5 minute walk down to the beach only adds to the appeal in my opinion. Infinity pool was a nice way to end the... More
