I travelled to Positano in May 2007 after seeing it in the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun' and had a dream to travel there and sit by the beach take in the views and drink Limoncello. My travel agent booked me into Hotel Bucca di Bacco for some serious indulgence. I was picked up by a personel chauffer at Naples... More

a perfect gem on the beautiful Amalfi coast. Great location, terrific service - a hotel with real personality. Francesco is Positano's biggest asset next to its natural beauty! A wonderful base from which to explore the coast. Wonderful breakfust, fabulous views, spotless rooms. Perfect for families or that special romantic getaway. Great value in a very expensive area!

We had the most wonderful stay at Buca di Bacco. The service was fantastic and our room was spacious with an incredible view. The hotel is just below the famed Syraneuse so the view is really top notch. Our room had the cathedral to the right and the Spaggio Grande to the left. The front desk made reservations for us,...

The hotel sits right on the town's main beach which is a plus and a minus. We were in the heart of it all, but we missed the view of the harbor from the mountain side hotels. We really loved this hotel because the staff was so wonderful. The manager was enthusiastic and helpful. The waiters and the bartender were... More

Beautiful, clean, wonderful service. After the hustle and bustle of Rome it was a wonderful end to our holiday. We were very happy with the hotel restaurant. They give a 10% reduction to hotel guests. The food and service were excellent and a good value. We were very pleased with the decision to stay in Positano. We had stayed in... More

BUCA DI BACCO, Our home away from home in Positano. We arrived there for a week's stay on October 21st 2006. This was the 2nd time we visited the Amalfi coast and without hesitation booked Buca. Our first trip was in October of 2003. We knew what to expect and were never disappointed. We had the corner balcony room #11... More

This hotel was the last on our 4 week European Trip and by far the best. To wake up to such a superb view and breakfast every morning - there was no better way to start your day. Eggs and coffee made specially for you as you like them and at no extra charge..and you can't go pass the Hot... More

I'm glad I stayed out of season in Positano because I get the impression it would be crowded in the Summer. The hotel is down near the beach which is ideal for lots of restaurants and shops but beware if you have a heavy suitcase because you will struggle to get there (the town is mainly pedestrianised little alleys)! Most... More

Stayed at the Buca in September for a friend's wedding. It is a totally unspoilt, traditional family hotel. Beautifully and individually appointed, it is a refreshing change from the plastic palaces offered by the chains. The whole place set the tone for a fabulous weekend and I would recommend the breakfast (try the strawberry tart), lunch in the restaurant and... More
