The perfect location in Positano, right at the beach, within walking distance (and a few steps) of the main spots. We got a room with sea view from the balcony and there was space enough for us. It was simple, nice and confortable, but bed, pillows and sheets could be better. Finally, the staff was very friendly, especially Roberta and... More

One of the worst features that made the hotel untenable was the smell. The entire hotel smelled of mold. My wife and I complained to the hotel management verbally numerous times and their reply was that it was the fragrant spray that they used. We did not believe this as it smelled like mold to us and our friends who... More

A DUMP OF FALSITY: It must have been hard to find something to complain, for example a simple question about the smell of mold should have been: why it is not noticed in the previous 770 Reviews? Maybe all the Reviewers got a cold? The same is for the rest of the remaining lying complains. It is clear that we... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in the summer of 2014. Since it's the high season for European vacations, I think this gave us a unique perspective on the service of this hotel. It's easy to be attentive when the hotel is empty but it's not so easy when it's 100% full for a whole month. As... More

My sister and I stayed at Buca di Bacco for 4 nights in August 2014. It is the best location in Positano since it is right off the beach and near the town's small port (to facilitate day trips to other towns on the Amalfi coast and Capri). The rooms are extremely nice and every detail has been thought of.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Honeymoon trip around Italy. We arrived by local Ferry from Sorrento and being laden with luggage were relieved to see the hotel is only 2 minutes walk from the port and located right at the bottom of the cliff side town. As soon as you walk into the reception the... More

Two days of paradise, highlighted by the most wonderful location in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, where the staff caters to your every whim, the food is divine and the comfort of our room made me wish for more time in bed. The view of the sea can't be beat. Enjoyed wonderful pizzas, gelato, seafood and salads on property.... More

My husband left his glasses at a restaurant in Capri. The staff made several calls to the restaurant and arranged for them to send them by ferry to the hotel. Then they fed ex'd them to us, free of charge. Couldn't have been more professional or helpful. Beautiful views from sea view rooms.

3rd visit to this hotel, and once again we loved it. It is in a great location, so close to the water, and numerous restaurants right at your doorstep. Mind you, the bulk of our five night stay we ate at their restaurant, not just for the handy 10% off, or the delicious food, but for the wonderful staff, Francesca... More

We absolutely loved this hotel! We had a beautiful room with an amazing view of the water. The breakfast was wonderful, especially sitting on the terrace overlooking the sea! We wish we had stayed longer!
