Beautiful hotel and absolutely amazing staff! My husband and I stayed there for the first 3 days of our honeymoon and it was our favorite spot of the trip. The views of the Amalfi coast were incredible and the hotel was very charming. Had a nice breakfast and cappuccinos ready for us every morning. I have to say the staff... More

In terms if value, we found... More

Spent three nights at the Hotel Marincanto in September. I’m a little torn in writing this review – we loved our stay in Positano and that was absolutely due in part to the Marincanto, but the hotel also has its flaws. On the positive side, the location of the hotel is second-to-none. Magnificent sweeping views of the coast and the... More

Stayed just one night and got a suite and was not disappointed. The rooms are spacious and the infinity pool wonderful. We had lunch at the hotel and the views are spectacular. The best kept secret was the lounge area away from the pool and overlooking the ocean. Not a soul out there after 8:00 so we had the place... More

We recently stayed at the Il Marincanto in Positano. The hotel is at the top end of Positano with an easy 5 min walk to the core of positano. The hotel is built into a cliff side with amazing sea views. We stayed in room 210 with a perfect sea view. The only disadvantage of this room is it sits... More

This hotel was fantastic with the most beautiful views. It has a great location (walking distance from the center of town). Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool has a beautiful view as well and the service from the pool staff great. Great deals out of season. We will return for sure.

We stayed 4 days at the Marincanto after a 2 week cruise in the Mediterranean. What a great choice! When we checked in, we were upgraded to the main bedroom of "the villa" - which was fantastic! We had a nice big veranda outside with amazing 180 degree views along the coastline and the town of Positano. We had morning... More

This was one of our favorite hotels during our 10 day trip to Italy. The view is so beautiful. We had "take-away" dinner on our balcony 2 of the 3 nights we were in Positano, It was too beautiful to leave. We loved winding down at the pool each day, enjoyed great company and John took good care of us... More
