This hotel is located right at the beach front. It is the best choice if you plan to travel by boat to neighboring areas (Capri, Amalfi, and Sorrento) whilst being based in Positano. We couldn’t have asked for more. We absolutely loved the hotel. The staff was always happy to assist you with a smile. The breakfast was plentiful for... More

Post card view, perfect location, lovely, welcoming and helpful staff. Breakfast on the terrace each morning and talking with sweet and friendly Chantal, beverage (and soccer game) with Matt the evening we arrived. Three nights at Buca di Bacco was quite a way to start a three-week vacation in Italy! We highly recommend it, and to use it as a... More

We chose this hotel because it was not high on the hill and beach level. But little did we know that in Positano everything is on a hill. You either have to go up or go down. As beautiful as the place is it is also very exhausting. This Hotel was simply beautiful. The Italian tile all through the hotel... More

I did extensive research for my first trip to Italy, and when I saw the pictures of Buca di Bacco, I knew I just had to stay there even though it was late in the season, and we didn't have much time in our trip. Best decision I ever made! It was like stepping into a postcard! The service was... More

We stayed in a beautiful executive room with a terrace & sea view. It was a large colorful room with a king bed & a full view of the water. We didn't have great weather so whenever the sun was out we sat on the terrace. Breakfast was good (although too much cake). The waitstaff was friendly and the view... More

We love, love, loved our stay here. The staff was extremely helpful not to mention the ocean view breakfast every morning. My husband and I were contemplating on which hotel to choose since we had never been to Positano before, and once we arrived we were so glad to have chosen Buca di Bacco. They are located within 5 min... More

This was a beautiful hotel with a stunning view and only steps from the beach! My husband and I loved our stay here and will absolutely be coming back. The customer service was amazing and something we really appreciated. We also had dinner multiple times at the restaurant as the food was delicious.

Where do I begin? We had a beautiful room with a balcony / terrace, overlooking the beach, with a stunning view. The room was beautifully decorated, with the very best amenities. The service was second to none! They also had an amazing breakfast buffet overlooking the beach!

Great location & great staff. Once you get over the not so grand entrance the rest of the hotel is amazing. Wait until you see the breakfast area & the spread of food. Great place for honeymooners. Thanks Buca di Bacco.
