The ultimate location overlooking Positano's main beach. Friendly management who welcomed us looking through the hotel and the interior design is chic southern Italian. A great place to base yourself while enjoying the delights of Positano.

Extra nice staff. The hotel itself is dated like all the other hotels in the city and I found Positano to be a bit depressing, but the staff and their attentiveness made up for any shortcomings there. The food was simple but amazingly delicious. Roberta is the best asset of he hotel.

We stayed June 18-21 and had 3 rooms (we have four kids.) The views from the rooms were incredible and the staff was extremely friendly. For example, each morning for breakfast after the first day, they remembered our drinks from the initial morning...just wonderful service. The location is perfect. In fact, one day we chartered a private boat tour that... More

I recently stayed there and was very pleased with the service I received. The staff was amazing- every request was noted, granted and responded to. The front desk staff was wonderful and friendly. The breakfast was more than amazing with homemade items, cheeses, meats and more. It will surely not disappoint.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days at the beginning of our honeymoon and everything was wonderful. It's right on the beach, and the view from our balcony was amazing. The room was very clean and we had no issues at all. The best part about the hotel was the staff, everyone was friendly, helpful and very charming.... More

We stayed July 2nd-5tth and had two rooms next door to one another (one for the kids). The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and inviting. The terraces made for lovely views and a nice place for a snack or glass of wine. The location is perfect. It could only have been made better if there... More

Loved, loved, loved Hotel Buca di Bacco. Could not believe the beautiful sea view from the balcony and the quality of the room for the price. Located right on the beach and in the heart of all activity. Lie on the beach, take a boat ride, have an amazing dinner or just relax with an appetizer and cocktail as you... More

We stayed here July 9th-12th and loved our room. Request Room #43 if you have the chance. The terrace looking out over the sea is breath taking. It is close to everything in Positano, all the shopping, restaurants, beach and boating. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good. Location is perfect, rooms are great and staff is very... More

Friends recommended this hotel and we chose it instead of a hotel our trip consultant recommend mid-way up the mountain. We were very glad that we were at the bottom in the middle of everything ... shopping, restaurants, boating, beach, nightlife. If we were in the middle of the mountain and had to walk up or down for all of... More
