Pros - View of Positano was great, room was big and clean, breakfast was a decent spread, property is well furnished. Hotel staff were polite, well informed and made great recommendations for dinners. Cons - it's a 20 mins walk uphill if you arrive with luggage by boat but most hotels are located on the hilltop anyway. There is direct... More

This may be one of my favorite hotels in the world because it is so beautiful. Be sure to ask for assistance with your luggage upon arrival and departure as they are happy to assist with the stairs. Breakfast was traditional European style on a beautiful veranda overlooking the ocean. Free Wifi in rooms was a great added feature. Staff... More

A very nice Hotel with spectacular views from your room balcony. A very attentive and courteous staff. Excellent choice to view the Amalfi coast. The hotel is very conveniently located to get around the city. The breakfast is also very good with a lot of choices. We would go back without any hesitation.

I just got back from a 1-week holiday in Positano to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday, and we were so lucky to have been able to enjoy this milestone at the Hotel Marincanto. From the moment one drives into the hotel driveway, one is captivated by the stunning postcard-perfect classic view of Positano. With the sea dropping down below and... More

The hotel was incredible. The staff and service are incredibly friendly and helpful. Conveniently across the street from the bus stop. Worth noting that the beach is very close, but it takes 200-something very steep steps to get down to it.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Marincanto for 3 nights during an 11 day trip to Italy celebrating our 25th anniversary. We were very pleased with our stay here. We were upgraded to the Villa and had a beautiful room on the lower level with a large, gorgeous patio with amazing views of the Mediterranean. The room was spotless... More

Whilst this hotel is certainly not 5 star in terms of rooms, fittings and furnishing - it makes up for it by pure location and spectacular views. We stayed for 4 nights in September and had a room overlooking the terrace and sea for the first night and then a room (the one pictured on their website) overlooking the beach... More

We chose Marincanto hotel based on reviews in Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is situated on the cliff with beautiful views to the sea and town. Pay attention when you book your room some of the rooms offer only partial views but that is stated beforehand and reflected in the room's price. The rooms are spacious and... More

Went to the Amalfi Coast for my 50th birthday and we stayed at the Marincanto Hotel for 5 nights. The premier service began the moment we arrived. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our room had a gorgeous balcony and view of the ocean - not to mention iconic scene of the hills of Positano.... More

This hotel is absolutely perfect! We would stay there again in a heartbeat! The location is drop dead gorgeous and close to the center of town, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Also the breakfast was delicious.
