3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is located just up the road from the famous Hotel Sirenuse and has spectacular views over the sea and from some rooms also over Positano. The rooms are located in 3 or 4 different buildings which all seem to have a sea view. Our room was simple with a balcony overlooking the sea. The furniture and amenities were... More

A very well decorated hotel that is in a prime spot in Positano. Breathtaking views of the sea which are spectacular to look at as you eat breakfast. Noting comments on other reviews, we actually found the room decor fine. Yes, there is a charge to use the loungers on the beach and a charge to park your car, but... More

This hotel is located above the bay and is five star in every way, beginning with the staff. From the front desk to the dining staff and "Johnny" who manages the pool area, you will be very satisfied. The view is just what you would expect on the Amalfi coast. Positano is not an area for those looking for lots... More

The hotel is way overpriced - we had a suit and everything was old, service and attention to detail non-existent. Go to Casa Angelina instead where we stayed the first half of our stay- a million times better!!! After paying €500 a night, they charge you €12 for beach access per day, €28 for parking and at breakfast they run... More

My husband and I just returned from spending four nights at Hotel Marincanto. We have very mixed reviews of this hotel. As other reviewers have said, you cannot beat the location, the views and the beautiful grounds. We found the staff to be warm, friendly and very helpful. Antonella was exceedingly gracious in helping us with arrangements for taxis, porter... More

This hotel was in a great location and the staff proved to be very helpful with booking/confirming reservations for restaurants and day trips. The pool guy, Johnny, was our favorite- he is awesome!! Breakfast spread was the best of our trip in Italy. Our room had a partial sea view and it was plenty. We didn't spend much time in... More

I may be a little bias, as I chose the Marincanto for my wedding venue :) The Marincanto is simply the best in Positano all around. Breathtaking views, beautiful hotel grounds, classy rooms, delicious food and terrific staff. I cannot thank Antonella and the entire staff enough for such a beautiful and hassle-free wedding. We've been to Positano multiple times... More

We had an ocean front superior triple room and the view was amazing! Room was large, bright, clean and just as advertised. Air conditioning was good and bathroom was very large and clean. The pool and deck are an amazing add on that make this hotel extra special, especially when it is 37 degrees as it was during our stay... More

Charming and romantic, this hotel more than met our expectations. The views are spectacular whether it's from the room, the terrace or the infinity pool. The staff were some of the friendliest and most helpful hotel staff I have encountered, going out of their way to ensure that we had the perfect stay. The infinity pool was a great place... More
