We had the most amazing time at Hotel Marincanto. My fiancee and I decided to get married in Positano (we live in Chicago) and spent a lot of time researching the best hotels, view of the city, availability for our guests, food, etc. They were so accommodating to us. They always answered our emails within 48 hours and we had... More

Rarely have we ever stayed for one week in one spot in Italy, but we made the right decision here as the place to park after two weeks of Rome and a cruise and to celebrate a significant anniversary. A view beyond words, a staff of pros - the front desk, Gianni poolside, the breakfast crew - great location -... More

Hotel location and views are beautiful. The infinity pool offers stunning views. The drawbacks are the charge to use the chairs on their private beach and the wifi doesn't really work. The chair charge was something ridiculous like 12 euro a person. Aside from that, we were there on our honeymoon and it was the perfect hotel for us. The... More

My husband and I had stayed at Hotel Marincanto last August for our honeymoon. The hotel is situated in a perfect location, right off the most scenic strip of pavement called Cristoforo Colombo. It was definitely busy season during that time because I felt as though the staff, while helpful (when you asked a specific question), did not seem overly... More

We stayed at Hotel Marincanto for a few days of R&R following two weeks of tour after tour in Italy. The hotel is located on a cliff with extraordinary views of the Amalfi coast..The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our rooms were clean and sufficient. The food was very good and the breakfast was terrific. The only real drawback... More

This hotel is simply stunning in every way. Gorgeous rooms, amazing views, excellent pool area and wonderful service. It has a private little "beach" area down a steep flight of steps (which are common throughout Positano, so no issues there). The restaurant was OK, but ran out of a few dishes the night we ate there (it was not full).... More

We traveled with our year old and 12 year old and stayed in a Junior Suite for 3 with an extra roll-away bed. There was plenty of space, a balcony, and a large bathroom. The views were gorgeous. The hotel is lovely, clean, and has a very helpful staff. We'd definitely stay there again. Our room was on the 2nd... More

This place was absolutely beautiful. The staff are friendly and polite. The pool was amazing and the views are stunning. Everything the website displays is legit. The wifi however was terrible, but who needs it when in paradise. When it was raining the hotel restaurant ran out of tables - they do not have enough. You need to book during... More

We are visiting in Sept/Oct of 2016 and after alot of investigating I chose the Hotel Marincanto after all of the positive Tripadvisor reviews. We'll be traveling with another couple to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and from the moment I reached out to them they have been amazing. They immediately emailed me back each time answering all of my... More

We stayed 5 nights and while we loved the beach, the location and the people, a lot of small touches were missing. The wifi sucks and you will eventually give up all hope of ever getting more than two or three minutes of connectivity at a time. The spa tub didn't work. The shower didn't seal. By 10 most of...
