I stayed at the Poseidon and was very impressed with their level of service. The location was excellent, a short walk to most restaurants and the beach. The breakfast that was included was incredible and you sit overlooking the coast. My hotel had a balcony that had a similar view. There is a beautiful bar/cocktail area to have a "Sprtiz"... More

We spent three nights here in August for my birthday. Unknown to me, the hotel staff knew that it was in fact my birthday, this resulted in every single member of staff that i saw that day call me by name and say have a good day! The small things like that ensure that this is a hotel that we... More

We spent three nights in Positano with a couple of our friends. We chose Poseidon based on the location and we could not have been happier. The hotel itself has a charm that is unparalleled. Heavy furniture, tapestries and carpets throughout make you feel as though you are wandering the halls of some private villa. The rooms are clean and... More

If you stay in this small city you are best to obtain a hotel situated below the only road and not above. The noise from cars and endless scooters going past never ends and the hotels above the road suffer from the noise. I rented two rooms so and both were so filled with road noise I could not sleep....

Poseidon is a wonderful hotel, with a phenomenal complementary breakfast buffet, great rooms with stunning views & great service. The bar had a guy playing live music who was spectacular. My only complaint is the shower was quite small for a junior suite in a hotel this wonderful.

Such a wonderful hotel!! Simply the best views of Positano you can get. We splurged and stayed in a deluxe junior suite, which was a spacious room with a king bed, couches and a large terrace overlooking the town and ocean. The furniture is older style but cleanliness and comfort is immaculate and the whole hotel has a ton of... More

This was a beautiful hotel. The view to the ocean was gorgeous and eating breakfast every morning was such a delight looking out on the sea and the town. Very friendly staff and we also had a cooking class. Staff attended to every need and the restaurant was excellent. The hotel is within walking distance of the central town, but... More
