“WOW!! Rock Star Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My wife and I stayed here July 2014 with for 6 days. We got a deluxe room with extra big terrace. This is a rock star quality room, Marble bathroom, stunning view, cutting edge large screen TV.
Most days after the delicious breakfast we walked to the ferry area picked a place to go for the day and got on a boat. Every afternoon we would stop at the deli up the road pick up some wine, Prosciutto, cheese and sat out on our terrace on our lounge chairs. Every night we chose one of a dozen restaurants at beach level. If you plan on staying here and exploring Positano I would suggest training on a treadmill on steep incline for a few months

Room Tip: Get the big terrace room

We stayed July 2nd-5tth and had two rooms next door to one another (one for the kids). The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and inviting. The terraces made for lovely views and a nice place for a snack or glass of wine. The location is perfect. It could only have been made better if there was a pool as the beach arrangements were not great (this had nothing to do with the hotel). I hope we have a chance to return, maybe as a couple as it is very romantic.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the water, you won't regret it!

Loved, loved, loved Hotel Buca di Bacco. Could not believe the beautiful sea view from the balcony and the quality of the room for the price. Located right on the beach and in the heart of all activity. Lie on the beach, take a boat ride, have an amazing dinner or just relax with an appetizer and cocktail as you watch local artists painting scenes of Positano. Everything is right there. You can't go wrong staying here.

We stayed here July 9th-12th and loved our room. Request Room #43 if you have the chance. The terrace looking out over the sea is breath taking. It is close to everything in Positano, all the shopping, restaurants, beach and boating. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good. Location is perfect, rooms are great and staff is very helpful.

Friends recommended this hotel and we chose it instead of a hotel our trip consultant recommend mid-way up the mountain. We were very glad that we were at the bottom in the middle of everything ... shopping, restaurants, boating, beach, nightlife. If we were in the middle of the mountain and had to walk up or down for all of our activities, we would have been exhausted! The room was a classic, so in the middle, and it had plenty of room with a nice bathroom and king bed. It had a smaller balcony than the Superior room but we enjoyed it and did not notice the difference. We had the option to move to a Superior room, but we liked our location and chose to stay put. The restaurant in the hotel was excellent. We also took at cooking class at the restaurant and it was one of our most fun adventures on our trip! It did not hurt that while we were in cooking school, Woody Harrelson and his crew came to eat at the restaurant and he took at photo with the chef and told us all hello.

We stayed here in June this year, and couldnt fault this hotel.

The staff were amazing in Particular the breakfast staff - who always made us feel so welcome. We loved every minute of our stay here. We had a partial obstructed view, and there was absolutely nothing obstructed from sight!

The location of this hotel is incredible with everything so close to the door!

We loved our stay here, and look forward to staying here again.

My husband and I just got back from a fabulous stay at this hotel in Positano. The location cannot be beat...you are steps away from the beach with perfect views of the hillside. We were lucky enough to get a balcony that overlooks the beach so we had no complaints in that department. The only thing that was less than perfect was the size of the bathroom, which could not fit my husband and I in it at the same time. The shower was tiny! But that was a minor discomfort given all the wonderful things about the hotel including the staff.
