This Hotel has so much going for it from the Location, Great Rooms through to the Pool Attendant - Ganni but it's the little things that really pull it back like the worst internet connection ever and the poor dinner service in the Restaurant we encountered compared to the great service they offer for breakfast.

We've just returned from a 2 day stay at Hotel Marincanto and were so pleased. The decor, airiness and design evoked just what a seaside property should look like. Our room was spacious with stunning white tiles and a memorable view of the sea and houses up the hills of Positano. From our first contact with the hotel, we were... More

Our stay at the Marincanto was memorable. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. We were delighted with our room and the wonderful views from the balcony. The breakfast buffet was excellent and dinner on the terrace in the warm evening should not be missed. The Marincanto's location is exceptional, overlooking the town and the sea, with... More

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful days here in Positano. Our room was beautiful and had a balcony with patio furniture overlooking the sea and with a superb view of Positano. The staff were superb, friendly and so helpful. This really is 5star accommodation and a treat to stay in such surroundings, with great attention to detail. The buffet... More

The stay we had at the Marincanto Hotel was so wonderful. Breakfast buffet was included and seriously good! The ladies Lisa and Rita made our stay so sweet! The rooms are quiet and the bed comfortable. We found it very romantic which all of Positano is! Be sure to go to Three Sisters resturant while there, down at the beach.

The hotel Marincanto is a short walk up the hill from the boat landing. You can give your luggage to a service which will deliver it to the hotel. Our room had a king sized four poster bed with the bath in an alcove which gives one the feeling of extending out over the sea. It goes without saying the... More
