My wife and I have been fortunate to visit many hotels around the world over the years from budget to five star. Over the course of these stays I've never encountered a hotel manager who has a policy of not talking with his/her guests. The Hotel Marincanto is the first we have experienced this. Let me start by saying we... More

Marincanto is a very beautiful hotel in Positano that has everything going for it! It has an incredible view, access to transportation and the beach (which is unusual and special)! There's a beautiful pool and several terraces. The best thing Hotel Marincanto has going for it - is Enza! She's gorgeous, helpful, sweet, focused, and productive! Every hotel needs an... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and will definitely go back - prime location, service, and facilities. Staff are approachable, remember who you are, yet don't 'step on your toes'. A very relaxing setting, close to the beach and restaurants, yet removed from the 'touristy' section of Positano. It was recommended to us and we will be recommending to everyone... More

This hotel has a lot of plus points but there are some issues. Firstly we had booked 2 rooms for ourselves and my parents. We received an email the day before to say there was an issue with our booking and we'd have to share a family room on the first night. The plus side being we could then keep... More

Stayed here in July with friends and just loved the hotel. The views and layout of the hotel was exceptional and the service was top notch! Was close enough to town that it was convenient, but off the beaten path enough that it was a nice oasis from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Would definitely stay there again if... More

Beautifull location, hulpfull staff, rather small parking, however not. An issue parking responsible makes the cars fit all, but reservation required. Food is Very Nice if not. used to italian Food. Center is at walking distance, however best to be in basic shape, some climbing required. Fantastic view from restaurant, majority of the rooms, sundeck and pool.

We had a really nice stay at the very nicely situated Marincanto in beautiful Positano. The hotel has a great location right on the cliff above the beach (a big walk down stairs to get down the cliff, but that's all the hotels here). The beach has chairs for rental (outside company) but the hotel has plenty of beautiful terraces... More

This hotel is in the perfect location- stunning views of Positano - easy access to the beach using the hotels private stairs and only a 5 minute walk into the town along the road above. The breakfast terrace is very pretty and a great place to enjoy your coffee whilst watching the boats roll by. The infinity pool also has... More

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
