We were fortunate to enjoy a four night stay at Poseidon in October. The property is beautifully nestled onto the hillside above Positano’s beach where words simply can not do justice to the view. The architecture, interior design, and juxtaposition against the dramatic hillsides and sea evokes a timeless, classic ambience - no doubt Poseidon represents an ideal base from which one can experience the Amalfi Coast. However, that is not all. The entire staff were warm, gracious, and went out of their way to make us feel not only welcome, but appreciated. They truly care about providing their guests with exceptional customer service - IMO, they approach the craft of being good hosts with passion. We will be back.

We had an absolutely amazing experience at Hotel Poseidon. Our room was gorgeous with hand painted tiles and a garden balcony. The pool area was charming with the restaurant close by, as well as additional seating where guests could enjoy a drink while taking in the breathtaking views of Positano. The staff were excellent! Everyone was extremely friendly and willing to chat or help with a smile. Margherita was kind enough to help with a booking issue upon our arrival. Also, special thanks to Luca and Anna for making our experience spectacular! The location of this hotel was great. It was walkable to the port, as well as many other restaurants and shops. Our only advice is, upon arriving, do NOT take the stairs with your luggage! Walk the street or call a car! Thank you for an amazing experience at Hotel Poseidon. We cannot wait to return!

Thank you very much, Suzi! We're delighted to know you've enjoyed your stay with us. We cannot agree with your advice more - do not walk up the stairs from the port with the luggage - there are much easier ways of reaching us! :) We are looking forward to your return! Best regards, Liliana @hotelposeidonpositano

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and don’t have enough good things to say about hotel Poseidon. We left truly feeling like family! This hotel is tucked into the hills of the Positano..right in the heart of such a beautiful place. The staff was incredible and our room (the Liliani suite) was gorgeous. We had a private balcony with stunning views. This was our favorite part of the trip! We loved having wine and cocktails on our balcony before heading out to dinner every night. The pool area (again STUNNING views) had a great pool bar and attentive staff. We were walking distance to the besch and other restaurants/shops around Positano, without being TOO close to the hustle and bustle right by the church and the beach. This hotel is family owned and has so much character..truly a hidden gem and a must stay. A very classic Italian vibe (not super modern but in a good way!) we cannot wait to go back and can’t stop looking at photos from our honeymoon there :)

I cannot say enough kind words about Hotel Poseidon and everyone who works there! Staying at Hotel Poseidon was genuinely the highlight of our time in Positano and it was also the location of our wedding room block. My husband and I encouraged our guests to stay at Hotel Poseidon for our destination wedding and we also hosted a wedding welcome dinner at their restaurant, Il Tridente. From the moment I contacted the property, both Liliana & Margherita were kind, friendly, responsive, and very gracious about helping me plan an essential part of our destination wedding. It was wonderful working with them leading up to our arrival, but once we arrived, it was even more wonderful meeting everyone in person! We were treated like family and our guests definitely felt as if they were receiving world-class service at the property. The hotel itself is stunning, evoking grand and romantic vibes, it is conveniently located within walking distance to the great shopping and dining in the area. The breakfasts each morning were delightful and the Il Tridente ended up being a fantastic choice for our welcome dinner. The food, wine, music, and service exceeded all of our expectations and I would recommend for anyone to stay at Hotel Poseidon! You will not be disappointed!
