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

We stayed at the Marincanto for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon, we had a Junior Suite (209) which was fabulous - it had a jacuzzi with views out to the sea, the views were stunning, I cant think of enough good things to say!! 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

Everything that had to do with this hotel's front desk/customer service was ridiculously bad. And I'm not just saying this as an American at a European hotel. We spent 3 months travelling Europe and stayed at hotels of various star ratings. This hotel calls itself a four-star and sometimes a five-star and we never experienced such half-hearted service anywhere else.... More

This was not our first trip to Positano, but was our first staying here. I just loved the hotel! The large, white tile lobby floor, the riot of colorful bougainvillea, and mosaic walkways - all overlooking that amazing, blue Mediterranean Sea. Our room was large, cool and comfortable. Great shower, a little small (as they all are) but lots of... More
