“Heaven on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We spent my 40th birthday here last week. Upon arrival we were thrilled to be upgraded to the honeymoon suite. Never have we had the pleasure of staying somewhere as beautiful. The staff were amazingly friendly, the view from our terrace to die for, a pool where you felt like you could float into the ocean and a very special hotel. Thankyou so much for making our stay so memorable. Even the young man giving out towels to people at the pool, had the enthusiasm of someone on their first day at a new job, nothing was too much trouble and he was as charming and friendly as the most seasoned of hospitatality professionals, this was very much the way we found all the staff at this excellent establishment.

Room Tip: Stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the Marincanto for 6 nights in late September. I can't say enough about this place. The hotel is beautiful, clean and well looked after by its wonderful staff. From the Moment we arrived we were greeted with a smile from the reception staff, however everyone was kind and helpful. We were fortunate to be introduced and have cocktails with the owner of the Marincanto, Lucca, by our driver Sergio Rianna. Sergio is a great driver that will take you anywhere you would like to go, he took us all across the Amalfi coast and even set us up with a private tour guide for Pompeii. This is Sergio's contact information if your interested. Sergio Rianna + 393349686800., email; info@taxi5positano.com. The rooms are simple clean and fresh with a Mediterranean feel which I happen to love. The view from our room took my breath away, spectacular is all I can say. The terrace was beautiful overlooking the ocean and filled with flowering trees and lemon trees. The breakfasts were continental with lots to choose from, however if you really wanted something other than what was offered they were happy to make it for you. We ate dinner on the terrace 3 out of 5 nights and the food was very good. This is a lovely hotel in a perfect location with easy access to the pedestrian shopping area. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I hopefully return to Positano one day. Thank you to the staff, you were all wonderful!

I cannot say enough about what a wonderful, hotel, location, & staff this hotel encompasses! To sum it up simply, I would say that the Marincanto & her staff met, then greatly exceeded all of my Amalfi coast fantasies!!! If you are looking for that perfect Amalfi hotel that is hanging off of a cliff above the sea, this is it. Do yourself a favor and give this place a shot!

Of all my travels, I have never stayed in a hotel with a view as magnificent as this one. Not only the Mediterranean but the flowers and foliage surrounding all rooms, patios, pool and lobby so beautifully maintained. Suggest you stay where we did, in older Villa section, particularly the suite adjoining living room which serves all villa guests. It is like private home. Our travel companions stayed in main building, also with beautiful view. well located without having crowds upon you yet close to all that matters. MOST IMPORTANT a superb staff in reception, house cleaning and dining. Stay here as it is modestly priced for the quality.

After a long walk on the path of the gods from Priano my husband and I climbed the long hill to this hotel. Unfortunately our room was down two flights of stairs with no option for an elevator. Our room had an obstructed view overlooking part of the pool bar, not the best! In addition we could see right into the shower of a nearby room. Lucky for us no one was taking a shower when we discovered this. The room was very nice but there was a problem with water from the shower flooding the bathroom floor. We did appreciate the turn down service with the maid bringing fresh towels and emptying the trash. This factor moved this hotel up a star. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the public areas we gorgeous! The breakfast was very nice and served on the terrace.

Room Tip: A patio is very nice to have. If you are concerned about stairs make sure an elevator serves your r...

I had my wedding at Hotel Marincanto August 2013. There are no words to explain how wonderful the staff and ownership is and how beautiful this hotel is. Everything from the rooms to the views were exceptional. This hotel has best views of all of Positano and the restaurant was amazing. We had a five course meal with wine pairings for our wedding and the most beautiful photos. Antonella and Enza are beautiful and were so helpful, I don't know what I would've done without them. The owner, Luca made sure everything was perfect and catered to our every need and went beyond any expectations. We will definitely be back next year.

FABULOUS in every way. Perfect location, gorgeous open lobby, comfortable spacious rooms, friendly staff, great service, truly beautiful views and patios, easy access to the beach and town. And they have a 5 star restaurant. We truly loved Marincanto and can't wait to go back. We travel all over the US and Europe and this was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in...for so many reasons I mentioned (location, service, beauty, views of amalfi coast, cleanliness, etc..). Enza, at the front desk was so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Thank you Enza, for making our stay unforgettable! You are a gem!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a beautiful patio facing the sea. However, I don't think you can go wr...
