“An Oustanding Hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We have visited the Hotel Poseidon on five occassions over the past 14 years and it has lost none of its charm and beauty. From the welcome at reception to the wonderful service in the bar and restaurant this is an outstanding hotel. Then there is its position, sitting halfway up the side of the town it has a breathtaking view overlooking the town of Positano and the brilliant blue sea. Relaxing on the beautiful terrace you have the best view in Positano. The owners and the staff take great care to ensure that you have the most enjoyable stay possible. With excellent food in the restaurant and a delicious breakfast this is the ideal hotel for relaxing or as a base for visiting the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and Capri. We look forward to returning soon.

We stayed at The Poseidon for 3 nights while traveling with friends. I like to call this our shabby chic hotel. It is charming, romantic, and comfortable. Our room was large with a beautiful balcony and the most breathtaking views. The staff at the front desk was very good. They were all very helpful anytime of day or night. Location was perfect for us.The pool area was the place to be for drinks and snacks. Breakfast was also served pool side. Beautiful flowers and plants were everywhere you turned. Just lovely. The location was good for shopping and dining. Anywhere you stay in Positano requires walking, so we did get a good work out! I would return to this hotel again.

Room Tip: Great deli across the street with everything you need for a picnic, snack or balcony party!

We spent 3 nights here, our friends staying in the room next door actually, and I have to say that the moment we stepped out onto the balcony of our room, it literally took our breath away. The views are incredible, the hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the location was perfect for walking around to shop or going down the 300+ stairs to the pier for an excursion to one of the many areas accessible by boat. The hotel staff was so friendly and helpful, especially with dinner reservations which are key at most of the restaurants around. The bougainvillea that surrounds the white exterior of the hotel, as well as all through Positano, is such a vibrant beautiful purple and sitting on the terrace of the hotel was so relaxing, as well as beautiful. If ever we are lucky enough to visit the Amalfi Coast again, I would not hesitate to return here and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the area.

This is a charming hotel. We stayed with our kids in adjoining rooms (interconnecting doors) with a lovely view of Positano and the beach. The rooms are on the smaller side and not particularly updated; however, they are very clean and have a vintage charm. Each room had a nice patio with a chase lounge, table and chairs. The pool area is great for quiet relaxing. The restaurant for dinner is very underrated - it was one of the better meals we had in Italy. The breakfasts are very nice and served on their patio with a great panoramic view. The hotel staff was very helpful with requests. Also, we drove there as a finish to our Italian road trip and parking was easily handled by the hotel. The photo is the view from our room at day break. We will stay there again (but perhaps without the kids).

We spent four nights at the Hotel Poseidon in May of 2014 and had an excellent experience. The accommodations and service were outstanding. All staff were extremely helpful and gracious. The hotel is owned and operated by a wonderful family. The location of the facility and the views from the hotel are incredible. If and when we visit Positano again, we will definitely stay at the Hotel Poseidon.

We spent our honeymoon here in 2015 and we just came back for our 9th anniversary

We found the Poseidon as wonderful as we left it nine years ago except that this time we were even blessed with meeting the owner, a marvelous lady with such a caring approach and down to earth personality.

All the staff was wonderful and so positive, people appear to have found the dream job and it does reflect onto their attitude, such a great work environment for them.

Great hospitality, great care, great food but most of all, great positive attitude from every angle.

We will come back here, definitely, and we hope to find no changes at all to this very well preserved, paradise on earth.

If you've never been to Positano, it truly is a marvel. Great spot. My wife and I really enjoyed Hotel Poseidon. The major Pros: very nice pool terrace overlooking the city and water; terrific buffet breakfast; the welcoming and accommodating staff. Biggest Cons: oof...getting there...once inside Positano you're on a one-way, windy road with scooters constantly passing you; the hotel is in need of a major refurbishing...our room furniture and furnishings were surprisingly dingy for the price. Note: by all means, enjoy the beach, but wear Crocs or the equivalent. It's all rocks and pebbles.
