My wife and I stayed here during our vacation in June. We stayed in a superior room, which includes a small terrace balcony with a table and two chairs and two small lounge chairs. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is right on the main beach in Positano as in you walk down bout 20 stairs and you... More

We had a fabulous time in Positano. We were treated very well by the staff with help with great restaurant reservations, directions, and maps for hiking routes. The breakfast was very nice, with a beautiful view. Our room was pretty simple but nice; lovely terrace with an awesome view. You do have to walk a ways to and from the... More

Great! Awesome! Perfect! Cannot fault this extremely good hotel in a great location. The large bedrooms are restful, calm, clean and well appointed. From our room on the third floor we had a wonderful view of the town of Positano built on the steeply sided cove. The beach was only a few steps away from the hotel. Positano is quite... More

I've stayed at three different hotels in Positano and Hotel Buca di Bacco is my favorite. We had the same terrace room as shown on the picture and it is definitely worth the upgrade. Prices are very fair for a hotel of this quality and position. You overlook the main beach and all the activities below. It is low enough... More

We stayed on the third floor so we had a great view of the sea, the beach, and the ferry landing. The room was large by European standards with a balcony. Lovely. It's not the most up to date hotel, but clean and well maintained. The marvelous location near the beach and restaurants is a big plus. Very friendly and... More

This hotel was recommended by friends and we did have a great view with a big balcony. The thing that let this hotel down slightly was the reception staff. We asked about the tourist bus and they knew very little about it and didn't have a brochure. We asked them to book a few restaurants for us but we never... More

Hotel is brilliantly located at the bottom of the hill. Surrounded by restaurants, bars and shops. Also really close for ferry's and the like. We stayed in one of the lovely rooms overlooking the water which was truly fantastic to wake up every morning to. I suggest booking a room overlooking the ocean. The staff are extremely accommodating and always... More

Let me start with the not so great.. We stayed in room 20 which was disappointing to me .. View was obstructed by roof and obstacles on top of roof in front of our balcony.. Yes we had a view but not a clear unobstructed view as seen in pictures when you book your room ...I booked a classic room... More

My first time in Italy and was very happy to know that I was not but a couple of sets of stairs from the beach. The breakfast provided each day was plentiful and included options for everyone...scrambled eggs, fruit, toast, a variety of cooked breakfast meats along with anti pasta options. Pastries, yogurt, cereals hot or cold...you name it they... More

The staff was professional and courteous (they helped arrange a private boat trip to and around Capri), the room was clean with a phenomenal view (don't believe the reviews that say you need a balcony, we had a regular room and it has full doors that open onto a little ledge that offers an amazing view). The shower was to... More
