We stayed three nights in Positano and before booking a room at Hotel Marincanto, I did my research on places to stay and Hotel Marincanto appeared to be a great fit for us. We were not disappointed. I booked our stay well in advance and booked a junior suite with a view of the city and the sea. When we... More

My husband Gordon and I recently got back from an amazing trip to Positano. We stayed at the lovely Marincanto and after looking at a number of hotels in the area felt that we had made the perfect choice! We loved everything about the hotel. Our room was tastefully decorated, spacious and clean . There was a generous sized bathroom... More

My husband and I got married at the church in Positano and chose to stay in a Junior Suite (#227) at Hotel Marincanto. We couldn't have had a more perfect stay! I had emailed the hotel several times before we arrived and everyone was quick to answer my questions. We had a beautiful, light and airy junior suite with a... More

Positano is one of the most beautiful places I have seen and the terraces at Marincanto have picture-perfect views. The staff is extremely friendly and the hotel has several very handy benefits - parking (Amalfi coast is notoriously difficult as streets are very narrow) as well as direct access to the beach! The hotel also has a large sun deck... More

My partner and I just spent 2 weeks at Hotel Marincanto May 2014. This was probably our 14th time we have spent our vacation in Positano and at this hotel. This year we brought 2 friends with us to share the experience. The staff treats everyone like they are special! The staff has remained the same for more years than... More

WOW! That sums up our 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. This hotel has the most beautiful view and is in the greatest location in Positano. The staff went out of their way every minute to ensure our stay was the best. Thank you to everyone at the hotel for their expertise in the area. Our room was 97 steps... More

We loved Hotel Marincanto and would certainly go back. Stayed at hotel for three days. Had a problem with our pick up from Naples and was very upset. We were so happy when we were greeted by Enza and given an upgrade and Prosecco and strawberries which we were able to enjoy and relax on our deck overlooking the ocean.... More

This was our fourth stay in Marincanto, we have been coming to Positano for 13 years but now would not stay anywhere else. From the time you arrive everyone is so friendly and helpful. Our room this year, 205 , had only a shower over the bath, but once we asked Enza to changed , she moved us the following... More

We booked this hotel for a week and also had our wedding here. I had been in contact with Antonella for about a year previously as she was helping me organise it. Upon arrival we were upgraded and given prosecco so we went out and enjoyed the views which are breathtaking. All of the staff here are lovely and genuinely... More

We stayed in Hotel Marincanto for three nights two weeks ago and must rank it as one of the best hotels in which we have said. To begin with we were upgraded to suite #254 that had a balcony that afforded us the best view of the sea and the town. After walking all day we could soak in the... More
