Now....this review comes slightly more than a year after we stayed (sept 13) but we remembered well enough to make a review. Best location right in front of beach, near great restaurants and doing a cooking class in their hotel restaurant is a must. The best thing you can do in positano is hire a motor boat (they call them... More

Booked this hotel last spring and stayed in August. The location is great as well as the service. I believe I was in either room 11 or 12 but it had a nice balcony overlooking the ocean. The breakfast was great and the fresh squeezed OJ was a nice touch.

We had a lovely stay at hotel Buca di Bacco during our honeymoon. Conveniently located right on the beach in Positano, we had an incredible semi-private terrace and sea view. Our room was spacious and very clean. We had just a couple minor hiccups in the room-busted TV and safe-which we were able to have fixed. We utilized the laundry... More

This hotel was perfectly located right in the middle of Positano with direct access to the beach. We had a sea view room with a very tiny balcony that was perfect!! It had a couple chairs and a table. The room itself was great (awesome water pressure and big tub) very comfortable bed. Wow!! I so miss this place. The... More

The Hotel Buca di Bacco provided us with the most comfortable, clean and well-serviced accommodation we could have hoped for. The staff were so friendly and attentive - going out of their way to provide us with everything we needed. On our final day, we had to leave very early in the morning and we were even provided with a... More

Visited this hotel with my family and children during the summer and It was a lovely experience. The location is excellent as it is right in the middle of the town of Positano where all the shops and restaurants are. It is also a few steps (yes literally ) a few steps away from the beach. The service was great.... More

Stayed 5 days in September. Difficult to find if its your first time in Positano, as it was for us, but once there, its difficult to imagine a more convenient place to stay, a more beautiful setting, a more comfortable room and the incredible service. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Although I have nothing to compare it to, I... More

My wife selected this hotel based on reviews and she hit the jackpot. We planned to visit this hotel 2 years ago but were unsuccesful. This time we communicated with the hotel staff beforehand and they were very helpful. They did everything for our safe arrival. They sent us a driver named Mimi who made our day upon our arrival...

Hotel Buca di Bacco was the best choice we made when planning our honeymoon. From the location, to the views, to the gorgeous room, to the incredibly friendly staff - the stage was set for the honeymoon of our dreams. When we first arrived, we were a bit jet-lagged on top of being tired from our wedding, but the warm... More

We did a 3 night stay in October at the end or the season and couldn't have been happier. I don't give this high of rating very often because there are special places like this. The place has a great history but the rooms are totally up to date and lovely. Best bathroom/shower ever in Italy - amazing water pressure!... More
