Travelers' Choice
Le Sirenuse is a wonderful place from which to enjoy the simple pleasures of Positano and the spectacular Amalfi Coast. John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote 'Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'

When you get to Positano you see the beauty of it straight away, and this hotel only intensifies the beauty. It is incredible. The best thing is the dining room lights in the evening. Apparently it takes them a few hours every night to light the candles. It's something else

I have visited Positano a few times and have always looked up at this iconic hotel hoping one day to stay there. Fiona and I booked with American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts which gives us quite a few benefits including a room upgrade at check-in pending availability of course. On every previous hotel stay for the past 15 years with this programme, the upgrade has been provided - but not at Le Sirenuse! We had booked a Superior Sea View room and when we got to it we discovered that it had what I could only describe as a restricted view. I believe that only three rooms in whole property have this drawback and we got one. Bearing in mind that they were charging us almost €3000 a night I had expected better! These room rates are more than we normally pay at The Four Season George V in Paris for an incredibly beautiful room. I'm sorry to say that, compared to George V, Le Sirenuse looks like a 3 star tourist hotel. The food was pretty good. The service was on the whole excellent however the feeling we came away with was that we had been totally taken advantage of as we were first time visitors. Would I recommend Le Sirenuse to others. I'm sorry but I most certainly would not. After all these years of waiting to get there this was a bitter pill to swallow.

Hi Douglas, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review - we are sad to hear we did not leave a lasting impression. We provide the upgrades whenever operationally possible (it is in our interest to do so!) however this year due to extremely high occupancy it has been very difficult as we do not have the rooms to upgrade our guests to. All our superior rooms boast a private balcony overlooking the iconic town and sea that surrounds us with a completely unencumbered view due to where they are located in the hotel. We are deeply sorry you felt differently and hope to welcome you back again soon so we can leave a positive, lasting impression. Very best, Francesco

It’s difficult to describe how special this place is. It’s an iconic hotel, with a great deal of history (which you can feel when staying there), but most importantly the service is warm and welcoming. We almost cancelled our dinner at La Sponda (ridiculously I was worried that it might be too uptight/ formal) but I am SO glad we kept the booking. It was one of the best dining experiences of my life. Our waiter announced “we want to make sure your evening is really special” and he meant every word. Instagrammers love this hotel and there were constantly people standing outside hoping to get in. IGNORE negative reviews from non-residents who were turned away from the bar. If you’re paying thousands of euros per night to stay here, you expect the staff to prioritise your place at the bar over walk-ins. That’s only fair! This place is special but not pretentious, beautiful and classy, and we are so glad we booked it. It IS expensive - very much so - but if you can afford it, I would say it’s a great experience. On the other hand, you will still experience the beauty of Positano if you stay somewhere considerably cheaper. I don’t want to take ANYTHING away from Le Sirenuse, but I wouldn’t break the bank to stay here. I say that in the most respectful way possible. A memorable stay in a unique place.

I first went to Positano about twenty years ago, backpacking through Italy for a month. The Amalfi Coast and Capri captured my heart back then, and it is sad to say it took twenty years to get me back there. Fortunately, the difference between being a college student and a 38-year-old means that my second jaunt to this region of Italy did not have a budget and my husband and I came to have good time. May 2022 was the perfect time to go – crowds were low, prices were reasonable, and the weather was fantastic. When you think Positano, you probably think of the vertical villas scaling the rock face from the beach, and the famous tile dome that sits like a Christmas ornament – the perfect garnish for this picturesque town. What many don’t realize is that Le Sirenuse’s meticulously maintained façade and terraces are as much a part of Positano as that stunning dome. Le Sirenuse’s gorgeous red stucco shines in the daylight, and it stands out clearly as a special place before you even step within 100 feet of the grounds. The investment of time, care, passion and money is abundantly clear the moment you pull up to the front doors of Le Sirenuse. It becomes obvious that you are in for an experience of a lifetime. When I travel, I research and plan 1-2 years in advance of the trip, so we walked into Le Sirenuse knowing all about it – the hotel layout, the plants, the rooms, the food, the activities, the history and the family. Going to check in I noticed instantly that Aldo Sersale was out front speaking with a guest, and this marked what we were in for and not expecting – a level of intimacy and detail on the hospitality front in the most informal of formal ways. This family and this team are here to make you relax and feel like you belong. Check in was a breeze and everyone’s kindness beamed through the COVID-19 partitions on the front desk. It was so dreamy being handed the famous room key in the beautiful lobby surrounded by exotic banana plants and no less than 50 orchid plants. We were escorted to our room, #54. Let’s be honest and upfront. We came to Positano in May, before high season. Even still, this was the most money we have ever spent on a hotel room, so I came to be more particular and critical than I usually am. Guess what? The room was immaculate. There is nothing to mention other than utter perfection. The white walls had no scuffs. The tile and marble floors looked brand new. There were no chips or scratches in any furniture. The bed linens and mattress were of the highest quality. The air-conditioning was effective and silent. The sound proofing was solid. The bathroom looked like it had just been renovated and the locally produced amenities were out of this world. Even the light bulbs used in all the lamps and fixtures gave a high-quality, warm glow without any distortion or strobing when dimmed. Everything was well thought out and perfect – like someone intentionally honed their craft for decades. And that is what you get in your room at Le Sirenuse. A product that a family has been working on perfecting for decades. And few hotels come close to this. Room rates at the hotel include a list of daily activities ranging from hikes to wine tasting to boat excursions. We enjoyed a plant tour with the fabulous Giulia Sersale and learned about the hotel’s decades-long plant plan. I might need a bougainvillea in my dining room as a result. We enjoyed an intimate wine tasting in La Sponda one evening before dinner service. Getting know local varieties (with some generous pours 😉) was so much fun while the team lit the 400+ candles for dinner service around us. Our boat excursion at sunset was a delight, and even though a brief storm caused us to head back, I will always remember the colors of the sky with the sun going down and the clouds rolling in above the mountains. The food and beverage program at the hotel is of course top notch, and there’s enough variety to enjoy local specialties, fresh seafood or a club sandwich if you need a taste of home with your Aperol Spritz. Dinner at La Sponda on our fourth night was a treat for the taste buds while we enjoyed eight courses watching the sunset with some bubbles and a nice Barbaresco. And maybe lots of limoncello. I didn’t realize that everyone who was making our mornings so special at breakfast also work the dinner service, so the night felt even more special seeing familiar faces stopping to chat and say hello. It was clear everyone was proud to have us seated at “the big show,” and goodness was it entertaining. We felt like established returning guests. Everyone loves the pool terrace here. We certainly did as well. The surroundings are one of a kind, and there’s endless entertainment watching lunch guests and clever tourists sneak in a tripod for that perfect “I was here” Instagram post. However, for me and my husband, our magic place was a quiet corner of the Don’t Worry Bar. Here, I had the first moment of this vacation where I felt relaxed, like it would all be OK. We sat on a yellow couch facing a fireplace where an antique guitar and Oriental armoire sit among the artwork, orchids, and palms. The barmen brought me the most beautifully crafted Manhattan cocktail, which I sipped while classic tunes by Paul Martin and Herb Alpert played out on the bar’s high-end speaker system. It was here we met Aldo Sersale one night and really started to understand the soul of this unique place, and the pull it has on its guests, its team, and its owners. Thank you, Le Sirenuse for this special time. Your hospitality and perfection are so unique and beyond expectation. We will be back, and one day we’ll call ourselves regulars. – Daniel & David

Dear Daniel & David, We are so glad you came top Le Sirenuse to enjoy the simple pleasures of Positano and the spectacular Amalfi Coast. We could not be more thrilled with your epic review, it has been shared with all the staff and our whole family. It is beautifully written. It truly means the world to us when we hear these kind words, especially those which enter into the specific on all the areas we work so hard to perfect, to give our guests this feeling. I am so happy you met my brother Aldo to discuss the hotel in a little more depth, it has been in our family for over 70 years - evolved from an 8 bedroom property which opened its doors in 1951. I would be most grateful if you could email us at info@sirenuse.it - asking for me (Francesco), so I can contact you personally, to thank you for such a beautiful piece of writing. Our best regards, Aldo, Francesco, Antonio and Carla

Excellent food, excellent staff, excellent view, excellent surroundings! We had a very good experience visiting Le Sirenuse for lunch. The welcome is what one expects from such a high-end hotel; smooth, friendly and professional! We were seated at a table with an excellent view on the port, the Dome of Positano and the well-known slope of buildings behind it. The food was very good! Worth a second visit! The prices are, of course, high, but I found it still reasonable. It is justified by the quality and good taste of the food, and the ambience. I liked that we were treated equally as well as all the other guests. The atmosphere was so good that I decided to stay longer (and order more) than I initially planned. I would definitely recommend a lunch at Le Sirenuse. Personally, I would also make a reservation for dinner on a second visit to Positano. That is how much I enjoyed my experience! Thank you, Le Sirenuse!!!

Magical...A dream fulfilled thanks to Leonardo and Luigi...Upon our arrival at Le Sirenuese, my friend and I were greeted with warmth and kindness by the charming Leonardo! His fabulous personality and attention to detail made us feel so welcome, relaxed and at home! He made sure we were familiar with our surroundings and set us up for a fabulous poolside lunch while our room was being prepared. Leonardo is just superb at his position! Our lunch on the terrace overlooking Positano's harbor was perfect and Luigi took excellent care of us through the afternoon as we lounged poolside. Our dinner at La Sponda was beyond exquisite as we were serenaded with local music by a two-man band. The table service was perfection as was our dinner. Le Sirenuese is truly the biggest gem in the Crown Jewels of Positano!

Best hotel in Positano. No comparison My wife is already pushing to go again asap. The staff was like something out of a movie. Attentive to every detail. The views are so beautiful you would almost think it is computer simulation. Ha. Food was amazing. Breakfast was awesome. Dinner was unbelievable. We did eat at other places in Positano but none compared to the hotel restaurant. Our room was to die for. Loved it. Hope to be back soon. Frank Dagostino
