What an amazing hotel. We were upgraded to villa 1 upon arrival and were delighted to find the huge balcony and sweeping view of positano. It was so much more than we expected and it was a highlight of our 4 week trip to Europe. The staff are more friendly, helpful and happy than I have ever witnessed and made... More

My wife and I stayed here in September 2013 for our honeymoon and we recently viewed photos remembering our great, romantic honeymoon. The staff are wonderful and answered all of our questions before arriving. I can't say enough about the service. From the front desk, luggage assistance, servers at dinner. The staff really cares about their guests and it shows.... More

We stayed at Hotel Marincanto last year for a week, it was fantastic. The only thing I would have liked was a cooked breakfast. The guys at reception were fantastic and once you explained to them what you were looking for they found it for you, I wish I could remember the name of the young women we dealt with,... More

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

This hotel situating in the best part of positano and positano is the best part of Amalfi coast. If you are looking for unobstructed fantastic costal view, you will find it here ( left and right) For the three nights we stay, every day has a wedding. That validates how good this hotel is. 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
