Buca di Bacco charms on so many levels its hard to know where to begin. First, there's the location - right on the small Marina of Positano. Then there's the incredibly warm and welcoming staff. There's the light, airy warm feeling of the hotel, and the perfectly appointed hotel rooms where you feel you are the first to stay there.... More

We stayed at the Buca di Bacco upon our first trip to Positano, and loved/highly recommend the hotel for its perfect location within the heart of the city's activity. True, the hotel is small walk from the nearest roadside square in the town, but don't let that deter you one bit. Once you've arrived you'll see that Buca is literally... More

We recently stayed at Buca di Bacco for 4 nights with our 2 adult children. We were celebrating my daughter's college graduation. WHAT A PLACE! My husband and I had a beachfront room (#12) which was enormous with a huge bathroom and terrace. The place was beautifully decorated and the most spacious room we've ever had anywhere in Europe.

I suppose you pay for the location. The views are stunning right from the balcony. And you are on the beach in minutes. The waves even put you to sleep! And the staff, super friendly. But... the price is silly. Certainly for the room I received which was a no frills old-ish room. However, Positano is a tourist spot and... More

Buca Di Bacco is everything the reviews say it to be. Perfect location on the beach with a quick walk (though uphill) to everything you want to see. The rooms are large with great terraces overlooking a beautiful sea. SkyTV with English was a great perk, esepcially since our weather was terrible during our stay and my wife and I... More

Well what a treat. Superb (and I mean SUPERB) views over the beach. All you could hear was the sea lapping at the shore and the birds chirping in the trees as you sat back in the hotel provided deckchair and supped a glass of something cold and dry and relaxed. The room was bright and airy and the breakfast... More

Perfect service,rooms,and location. Someone should have warned us that the terrace for the bar and Breakfast room(only four small tables outside, on a balcony ) was closed! these things cannot be helped but breakfast inside every morning was not part of the dream!

An absolutely gorgeous hotel in the HEART of Positano. One of only 2 or 3 hotels that are directly on the beach, which is a big plus for beach access, obviously, but also because, unlike most landscapes, in Positano the best views are from the bottom up. My favorite things about this hotel are (in no particular order): 1. The... More

if ever there were a hotel that exceeded all its positive advance notices, this is it. It is as good as everyone says and then some.

Wonderful, friendly staff. Large room. Beautiful view. On 3rd floor, all you can hear is the ocean. Full breakfast, bacon/eggs/fruit/pastries/cheeses. Great cappuccino. Clean, bright, cheery. Good restaurant. Perfect location. Book with venere, have dinner at Max's and have a great trip.
