Hotel Marincanto is probably the best value for money you will find on the Amalfi Coast.
Sure, the rooms are just a little dated but they are spacious, clean and the balcony view is to die for. The breakfast was probably the best we had in Italy, drinks on the terrace were a delight and dinner recommendations from the helpful man at the front desk never failed to impress.
We tried Caffe Positano (and nabbed a table outside on the upper balcony), took the free shuffle boat to and from Ristorante Scirocco (amazing seafood, but stay away from the bitter, overpriced lobster - €115 on its own!), and best of all, journeyed high in the hills for the most delicious truffle pasta – sadly, the name escapes me, but just ask at the desk!
There were plenty of trips and excursions available but we took it very easy in Positano - we spent a day lazing around on the private beach, rented speedboats and explored the magnificent coastline and stocked up on lemon candles and sweets in the adorable little shops in town. That just leaves us all the more to do when we return - straight back to the magnificent views of the Marincanto.
A word of advice, though – go soon. When their new pool is open (from April this year), we will probably see a hike both in visitor numbers and, correspondingly, in their prices…
