“Amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Everything is beautiful in Positano, including hotel Marincanto. They lost our reservation, which was disappointing after the trek from Rome. They tried to sell us on a horrible jail cell of a room, but we complained. I mean, come on, this was our 10 year anniversary trip! So, for one night, they arranged a room for us at a near by hotel that we really enjoyed. They made transitioning seamless. The next day, back at Marincanto, we were given a room in the villa. We had stunning views from our balcony. Breakfast and coffee were yummy-we overindulged. The staff was helpful and we had a lot of questions. Had to find non beachy things to do as the weather was bad. Hiked, shopped, took a cooking class and drank a lot of Prosecco on our balcony. Easy beach access. If it wasn't for the one snafu this hotel would have been exceptional.

Room Tip: Pay up for a nicer room with a better balcony. We emailed to reconfirm reservation about a month bef...

If visiting positano this is the place to be. Great location. Rooms are large, uniquely decorated, and have spectacular views. We were lucky enough to get a villa with a huge terrace overlooking the entire coast. Excellent staff. Front desk (Antonella) was very helpful in setting up reservations and transportation. Highly recommend it and I look forward to staying there again!!

So we had our wedding ceremony at Hotel Marincanto last weekend I can not say enough good things about the location, the beauty of this place and the staff. Antonella and her staff were so amazing and helpful. I was really nervous planning my wedding from the states basically blind, I had never been to the hotel or even Positano for that matter! Antonella answered all of my million emails and was so helpful in every way. The venue couldn't have been better. The terrace in my opinion is the best terrace in all of Positano and just has a presence about it with the way it hands over the ocean. The hotel rooms and the beauty of the exterior I think were better than Le Sirenuse which is 5x the price. Stay here you wont be disappointed! And if you are thinking of having your wedding here do it! You will be so happy.

Room Tip: junior suite is great!

Absolutely beautiful hotel in picturesque location! We spent four days of our honeymoon here and loved it- wish we had been able to spend longer here!

We ate at the restaurant for two of our nights and the food was delicious ! Having the option to have breakfast on the balcony of our room for no additional charge with the full selection of what was downstairs was divine!!

Enza, you made our stay incredible and sincere thanks for all your help with planning our little trips and your recommendations for Anacapri and the Pathway of the Gods! We loved it and will definitely be back one day!

I could have stayed in the room all week and watched the changing colors as they played out across the water, mountains and buildings of Positano. Also from the room you will see that there seems to be no end of boats of all sizes coming and going from Positano. But, there is so much more to this hotel than the view. The hotel staff were excellent. The breakfast was excellent and the servers made sure that our needs were met. The room was spacious which is surprising considering how valuable any space must be in Positano. Our bed was adequate, not the greatest, but OK.

The swimming pool was OK, good for a cooling dip, but not for any serious swimming. If you walk down the steps to the beach you reach a gate where you can buzz the desk and they will open the gate for you. The beach is covered with rounded stones which are hard on the feet. Suggest you bring water shoes for swimming. There is only a small area above and below the waterline where you can stand without footwear (depending on how hearty your feet are).

While at the Marincanto, take the Positano bus to the other side of town and walk back. Also, take the bus to Nocelle and walk along the path of the gods. You don't have to hike the whole path to have a wonderful experience. Any part of this path will leave you with a memorable experience.

We stayed in August 2013 with our two boys aged 10 & 12 as part of a 7 week trip. We had always wanted to visit Positano and wanted a cliff location with amazing views and a pool for the boys. This hotel certainly didn't disappoint. The views and pool were amazing, picture postcard perfect! The staff were so attentive and we were very lucky to receive a room upgrade which we were so grateful for. We had dinner the hotel restaurant on the terrace which was lovely, again with amazing views. Breakfast was same on the same terrace and the range and quality was excellent. The hotel is within a easy walk of the main shops and the beach below. We would highly recommend Hotel Marincanto and we cant wait to stay there in the future.

My husband and I had done a lot of research before finally settling on a hotel that seemed right for our honeymoon. We had backpacked all over Europe for a month before coming to Hotel Maricanto and wanted somewhere that would allow us to relax and enjoy the serenity in being married. This hotel did exactly that; from the moment we stepped into the hotel, to the very moment we left, we were treated with respect and felt special.

Staff:
We found that the staff went well out of their way to provide us with anything that we needed, from answering multiple questions that we had, to providing some suggestions of places to see, things to do, and where to eat. There was one member in particular, I apologize I do not remember his name, that lives in Positano and was able to provide us with some insider suggestions. Our first night there we were given a bottle of wine as a welcome gift and congratulations, with a wonderful hand written note. The staff also helped my husband pick out an amazing array of flowers for our date night and had them delivered to our bedroom secretly.

Honeymoon Suite:
Our honeymoon suite was perhaps the best bang for our buck. We are both students who just graduated from university and had spent the previous month being very tight on our spending. Therefore, to spend that sort of money on a room was something we were concerned about; but the view and the setting was breath taking. Our room was always up kept and made to look like a palace. It was just steps (down a private stairway) to the beach below and was quiet. The room came with our own pool, which overlooked the coast/beach and made for a wonderful way to relax at any moment. This along with the balcony, the comfy bed, couches, fridge, and the many other things I could continue with made for a spectacular stay. Look at the pictures, as I believe images speak better than words, and you will understand how stunning the stay is.

Breakfast:
The breakfast was complementary and excellent. Fresh fruit, pastries, meats, and just about anything you could want was available to you. You did have to pay extra for coffees but their coffee was also very excellent and I think worth it.

Thank you to Hotel Maricanto and the staff. You managed to make our love stronger and more true than ever imagined and we are thankful that we were able to stay with you during this time.
