We stayed at the Hotel Marincanto for one week at the beginning of July. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly like to return. We booked a “Special Junior Suite” direct with the hotel which was beautiful. The view from the balcony and Jacuzzi bath was very special indeed. The room was large with tasteful furnishings, although no dressing... More

We just returned from eight nights at Hotel Marincanto, and had a great visit. We stayed in room 203 which is right above the breakfast terrace and has an excellent view. The hotel is on the ocean side of the road and is below street level, so traffic noise is never a problem. Plus, while the hotel is an easy... More

Service was tremendous from check in to check out. The room exceeded our expectations. We expected a decent room with sea views and ended up with a 3 bay suite , 2 balconies and incredible views of the town, beach and sea. The morning breakfast buffet is more than enough to start your day. We rented a car and had... More

An hour bus ride from Sorrento, Positano is one of my favorites! It was a really pretty ride along the coast but the windiest road I have ever seen and the bus drivers drive a little crazy hahaha. The hotel was maybe a minute walk from the bus stop so that was pretty awesome. We got to the front desk... More

I had the great pleasure of staying at this delightful hotel for a week in May 09. It is perfectly positioned in breathtakingly beautiful Positano, with fabulous views of the sea,of Li Galli Archipelago & of Positano itself. It is in a tranquil location, yet is within comfortable walking distance of the bustling centre & the beaches. I cannot fault... More

We had 7 nights of our honeymoon at hotel marincanto and loved every minute. The staff were all extremely helpful, the rooms spacious and spotlessly clean and the setting is just amazing. Loved having our breakfast on the terrace- could have spent hours at breakfast- there was so much choice. The terrace with the loungers was great for relaxing on... More

Don't get me wrong, this was a decent hotel and we would stay there again but I was expecting more. It definitely was not 4 star quality. You are paying for the location and the views which are incredible. The rooms were clean but forgettable. The bathrooms were outdated. We did have a fantastic view from our balcony. It does... More
