Our family of four including two teens (14 and 17) spend 3 nights in this lovely hotel. The location is perfect, clinging to the idyllic hillside in lovely Positano. The staff are fantastic at all levels, from the email communication with Antonella prior to arrival to the front desk staff (Enza is fantastic!), wait staff and housekeeping. They do an... More

Wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else, 3 properties down from the more expensive La Sirenuse and probably as good or better view. We booked a junior suite room 224 that has the most amazing view of the coastline. Can't thank the staff enough for such a wonderful stay. -Immediately when we got there our bags were taken to our...

This is a first class hotel, beautifully appointed, with excellent service from the helpful staff - every request was met with pleasant assistance. The hotel is well located in Positano with amazing views of the town and the bay. We had Room 208 Special Junior Suite which was very spacious with balcony and large Jacuzzi overlooking the bay. The breakfast... More

This small hotel is fresh with gorgeous white and blue tiles, a breathtaking view of the sea, and has a glorious patio for al fresco dining covered in pink blooming florals and lemon trees. The steep stairway down to the private beach is worth the trip down (and hike back up!). This was by far one of the most picturesque... More

My husband and I stayed in a Superior Double Room for 3 nights earlier this month and we loved the Marincanto! The room was a good size and we had an amazing unobstructed view of Positano and the sea. There were ALOT of stairs to get to and from our room, but it was totally worth it for the view... More

My wife and I were recommended to stay at this hotel from friends. We spent the past four days here. The rooms were spacious and always clean with a great view of the ocean/ positano landscape. The service was amazing. All the hotel employees were extremely attentive , helpful and knowledgeable especially Gianni and Enza. The restaurant at this hotel... More

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

Dear Guest After reading your review we were absolutely astonished and surprised. Since the hotel opened we did not have any guests from Thailand who stayed in a standard room but what really confused us is that it's really impossible to say (just read hundreds of reviews from other guests) that only the top 2 floors of the whole hotel...

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
