The hotel is well situated with great views and garden areas to relax, a large selection of foods in the breakfast buffet and the waitress who sets it up every morning was exceptional.THe only downside was severe...

While staying at Hotel Marincanto on our honeymoon, my wife and I kept remarking how perfect the hotel was. We stayed there for a week and loved every minute of it. The hotel has a great location with stunning views of the town and beach. They also provide an incredible breakfast each morning that you can enjoy on their beautiful... More

My husband and I were a little worried that 5 nights in Positano would be too long, but we were so wrong! We enjoyed every minute there and could not have picked a better hotel for our honeymoon. Between the breathtaking views and the humming of the sea outside our windows, just being in our room was an amazing experience.... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 days of our honeymoon. We booked a junior suite but there was a mix-up with the bookings and we were put into a superior room for our first night. The staff were so apologetic about this but they needn't have been - both rooms were beautiful with fantastic views! The... More

This hotel was just what we were looking for in a our 4 day stay in Positano. Its situated at the top of the hill so it s removed from the crowds of the lower beach. Its easy to get from the hotel to the beach (a few hundred stairs take you down) and its worth being up that high... More

We spent 5 days at this hotel on our honeymoon. It was perfect. We stayed in Room 211, with a jacuzzi with a water view and a private balcony. We were kind of annoyed that the bed was two twins beds not queen size, especially since I specifically asked before we booked the room, but we weren't so put off... More

My partner and I spent 4 lovely nights at Marincanto and loved it! The views from our balcony were fantastic and from the terrace at breakfast. It was just a short down hill walk into the main shops area or down the stairs to the beach. We found the reception staff to be very friendly and helpful, they made reccomendations... More

Of my 6 nights on the Amalfi coast, I did my first 2 in Positano at Hotel Maricanto. Again, based on the TA reviews and the photos I saw. We were lucky enough to have picture postcard PERFECT weather so the view from our room was unsurpassed. Actually, I could not believe the size of our terrace. It was literally... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights on a friend's recommendation and it was amazing. Beautiful hotel, amazing service and views....terrace area for breakfast and drinks is breathtaking. It's somewhat high up but that's Positano - any closer to the center of town would be too crowded - this is the perfect distance up. Would recommend this hotel... More

We spent the last two nights of our honeymoon in Italy at this hotel and I am sorry we did. We spent twelve days in Italy in September of 2009 for our honeymoon.
