You really cant go wrong here. The rooms are beautiful, it seems that almost all of them have a view of the sea. The pool is awesome and overlooks the bay, there are stairs going down to the beach so that you can swim in the Sea, even without renting a spot at the beach. You can walk into town,... More

There are many positives about this property but a few negatives . First the positives . 1. The location is outstanding . Not that high up from the beach and close to town as well. We went to the beach several times. Even though it is rocky , to swim in that heavenly blue azure water was heavenly . The... More

We recently stayed at Hotel Marincanto for 10 nights for our honeymoon and we were blown away by the service from beginning to end. Massimo and Salvatore were great drivers for the hotel and provided impeccable service. Massimo was on time at the Naples Train Station to provide a great ride to the hotel. Massimo was extremely friendly and professional... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Marincanto for 4 nights during our honeymoon. Our flight to Naples was delayed by 4 hours, so we were a bit worried about what would happen with our car transfer that we had arranged via the hotel, but when we got there the driver, Massimo, was ready for us and we left...

I’ve seen Positano described with an infinitive number of adjectives – my favorite Paradise. Hotel Marincanto views capture all the stunning beauty of Positano. It’s easy to find yourself day dreaming while enjoying a breakfast on the terrace or an afternoon swim in the infinity pool. Marincanto is ideally located just above the beach and town, providing quick access to... More

One of the most wonderful views from any hotel I have ever stayed in. Infinity pool overlooking the Amalfi Coast. Although furnishings in the rooms not the most luxuriuous I have ever encountered, it did not matter with the view out the window and from out lovely patio. Incredible value for the experience. Staff was helpful and friendly. Parking (... More

Positano was the highlight of our honeymoon in Italy. The Hotel Marincanto is an amazing property on the cliff and very easy to access by car (paid parking). No hassle of having to carry your luggage down steps! The infinity swimming pool takes the prize of the best we saw in the trip, not only because of the view but... More

This hotel experience is the best ever. The staff & their level of service is amazing, the views breathtaking & the proximity to shops is convenient. The cleanliness is impeccable. We dined in the hotel restaurant on 2 nights & the food rated very well against other establishments in the area. If you want a great holiday in Positano then... More

Hotel Marincanto has the feel of being in a glamorous 50s or 60s movie. We had a huge room, with sofa, round table & chairs with balcony and amazing views. The bathroom (with spa) also had a wonderful view of the sea. It is a little tired in parts now- the bathroom spa could definately be replaced. Some of the... More

When I was reviewing hotels in Positano I found that there was not a great price difference between Hotel Marincanto and other hotels (3 & 4 star) further up the hill. The nightly rate was still higher than what we would normally pay however the location and amenities make it all worth it! Wow!! The hotel is beautiful, the staff... More
