We are a 60 year-old couple traveling independently in Italy for the first time. Our 3 week trip was arranged by a travel agent. We requested standard double rooms in smaller, interesting hotel. The hotels knew we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. This hotel is a wonderful find. And find is the operative word if you are driving. You... More

This year we had room 34 with a great terrace with THAT view.As usual the room was spotless(where do they find their staff?) and Francesco remembered us from our previous visits.We had to make some train booking for friends and Laura could not have...

When you get to Positano, you only need to know how to say three things: Hotel Bucca di Bacco, Francesco ( the Manager), and Arturo (the restaurant maistro). It's like being on the front row and backstage at the same time. Walking out on your terrace and being able to talk to your children on the beach? 360 degrees of... More

Just returned from my Honeymoon and everything about the Buca was PERFECT!!! The location is ideal, right near the beach - you are high enough up that don't hear the people below, but close enough to hear the ocean. Our room was great - spacious with a wonderful terrace - incredible views!!! The absolute best part of the Buca is... More

A real little hot spot in Positano, we stayed there for 10 nights on our honeymoon, and overall, it really was a wonderful place. Great food, service, views and the hotel itself is spotless. Breakfasts were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for their friendly and accommodating staff. Positano is very hilly, so it’s superbly located just steps from the... More

Having just returned from a 10 night stay at the Buca di Bacco I can say that it is a truly gorgeous place to stay. From the first moment we walked through the front door to the final walk out on the last day we were treated extremely well. The staff were always on hand to help out and always... More

A travel agent booked us a room at the Hotel Buca de Bacco as it seemed the whole of Positano was booked out at the end of June so we arrived on the Amalfi Coast with no preconceived ideas. We knew it was steep but our drive from Salerno to Positano still amazed us as the car travelled around impossible... More

We stayed in Positano for two nights and this hotel was truely wonderful and a mere stones throw from the beach. Our room had a private terrace overlooking the sea and had all the facilities you'd want (with a nice big bathroom) and great air conditioning (important for the hot weather). The service around the hotel was great and we... More
