My husband and I had our wedding on the sun deck at the Marincanto and it was fantastic. What a view! Monica and the rest of the staff were amazing in securing every detail to make our wedding day spectacular. From my first contact with the hotel when I began my research until we checked out, we received efficient, professional... More

This was my second visit to the Marincanto and it was even more wonderful than before! The staff are all so very helpful and kind. The rooms are perfect and the views are to die for!!! A perfect position on the cliff for the most beautiful view in all of Positano!!

All great hotels succeed in four key ways: Guest comfort, service, location and unexpected extras. Hotel Marincanto performed beautifully in all four during our recent stay. The location, overlooking the sea, is exceptional...an easy walk (downhill) to the best shopping. Our room had an incredible seaview as did just about every room (all quite elegant). Breakfast (included in the rate)... More

Positano is such a magical place....in my opinion it's mesmerizing, relaxing effect on the psyche definitely has an effect on all the rave reviews of hotels on this site. That being said what truly separates the good hotels from the great ones are integrity and customer service....terms severely lacking in the manner of business conducted by Hotel Marincanto. For inexplicable... More

We had room 213. It had a beautiful view. It only had a shower so I wouldn't book this room again. The air conditioning worked great. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good with a wonderful view. It was 240 Euros in Sept. 2007.

My husband and I stayed at the Il Maricanto Hotel in positano for a week in a half in June 2007. The hotel was nice, but the 260 stairs to the beach was not! If you book a room splurge for one of the suites. Our bathtub was huge and overlooked the water. It made it a more romantic atmosphere.... More

I think that the standard rooms all have the same views so maybe I... More

There is NOT ONE bad thing to say about this awesome hotel. I would live here if I could!! There is apparently an old section and a new section to this hotel and I have stayed in both. I loved both. I loved this hotel so much that I went to stay there in July, and then returned again in... More

I have been using TripAdvisor for all my trip research and it has really been spot on! The Marincanto was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! It is in the best area of the beach and is much less crowded. Every turn of the many stairs is more beautiful than the next. The staff went out of their way to help and make us... More
