Houston, Texas9 contributions24 helpful votes
This place was amazing. Perfectly located close to the shops of Positano and not a far walk to the beach. Be careful in Positano because close to the beach cars are not allowed so you're walking to get to your hotel. Before our visit I planned dinners and excursions with Giancarlo and Giusi. This was the trip of a lifetime for me so I know I was overly needy, they were terrific via email helping me understand what to do and where to go. They booked dinners, car services for us, and even a boat day to tour Capri by ourselves. Naples airport is very slow so don't expect to get your luggage and be out quickly. When we checked in, Giancarlo was there to greet us and he remembered me from ALL of the emails I had sent. What a nice guy and he was so helpful and polite our entire stay. Giusi also remembered me and every time I walked past she always had a hello, good morning, anything you need for us to book today, the staff here was great. Pino the bellman took our luggage to the room and gave us a tour of the hotel, again another excellent staff member. He even found a bed for our dogs that we travelled with. The hotel takes a day or so to figure out how to navigate but you quickly learn where everything is. The rooftop pool has an insane gorgeous view and Il Tridente was supurb. There is a TON of walking in Positano so be ready for it. Cute shoes for the ladies is not a good idea. Functional shoes you can walk in work best. If you go out the hotel to the right and walk about 100 yards there is a set of steps that takes you down to the beach. Its the fastest way to get there but they don't call it the thousand steps for nothing. Another favorite spot of ours was Saraceno d'Oro for amazing pizza about 150 yards up the street from the hotel. We had a junior suite that had a patio with stunning view of the Med, the room was quite large for a Positano hotel. In the evenings you could hear singers in the town square near the beach belting out amazing music that made you feel like you were in the heart of Italy. The hotel did not have a gym which we would have liked but all of the walking burns plenty of calories. The staff here was terrific and really was the best part of the hotel. I can't wait to come back.

Wow! This was such a special stay! The hotel is beautiful and full of amazing details, but the service especially was out of this world! The pool/bar area is an amazing retreat from the busy streets of positano and every person working was so kind, funny, and helpful. The breakfast is amazing and has so much selection and the cocktail bar has every type of cocktail possible! We were there at the end of the season and there was no decline in service at all. I’ve never stayed in a hotel that paid this much attention. This was a splurge but so so worth it, if you’re on the fence - book it! You will not regret it. We booked the “funny room” and the balcony was huge and the view incredible, I can’t wait to come back!

The Poseidon Hotel and Staff were amazing!! The view from our balcony was breathtakingly beautiful. The entire staff from check-in, dining and terrace waitstaff and housekeepers have the highest integrity and we’re courteous, friendly and so welcoming to us as well as our family. We highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed.

This hotel is truly AMAZING in every way. Our stay has been incredible. From the moment we stepped in the door we felt so well cared for. The property itself is gorgeous, the views are spectacular, the rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable, and then there’s the staff!! Wonderful doesn’t even begin to describe the OUTSTANDING service we have received from everyone on this very warm and gracious staff hotel staff. They treat you as if you are a guest in their home, extending extraordinary hospitality at every turn. No request is ever too great and their joyful and helpful attitude permeates every level of the hotel. The restaurant, Il Tridente is excellent…the breakfast buffet is beautiful, varied and plentiful, and lunch and dinner are also outstanding. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. It is hard to actually capture the magic of this extraordinary property but we in all our travels the world over, we have never enjoyed a more special hotel stay. Yes…there are many hotel options in Positano, but NONE more FABULOUS than Hotel Poseidon. Thank you for a fantastic visit…it has truly been the highlight of our two plus weeks on the Amalfi Coast.

The hotel was immaculate, beautiful with an amazing staff! The food and drinks were exceptional. Our junior suite overlooking the ocean was truly a suite-large,spacious, and so comfortable. Towels were changed morning and night for that special touch. I plan to return for a week next time 💖💖💖

This is the best hotel I’ve ever been to and I have travelled a lot. Spent five days here with two girlfriends for my friend’s 50th birthday. Views, staff (especially Josie at the front desk, Paolo in the restaurant, and Tony at the pool), food, accommodations - everything. Well worth the price. Can’t wait to return. HIGHLY recommend.

Without a doubt, the most beautiful hotel in Positano. The views were beautiful when dining outdoors for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Customer Service was 10/10, super helpful and friendly. The only thing is the room was quite basic for what we paid for. Paying AUD $1,600 for one night was not worth it considering the room was super basic and the small balcony. The balcony view was great but not worth that amount of money. I will definitely dine there next time, however recommend not booking a stay as you can get the same views at a lower cost elsewhere.

Still dreaming of our stay here! You will not be disappointed— every detail was perfection. A special shout-out to Liliana… she went above and beyond in her service to us. She booked our beach club, dinner reservations, car transfers, etc. When we checked out she called and said we left our passports in the safe— we were already in amalfi so she had them delivered to our hotel there! Can you believe the service?? It was so so kind. Tony at the pool was so attentive and helpful as well. I also had one of the best massages I’ve ever had at spa and the dinner views were fantastic. You will love it here.

Hotel Poseidon is a family-owned facility in a perfect location to shopping and dining in Positano. From the moment we arrived until the time we departed, we had nothing but a positive experience from the front desk staff, the restaurant (Tridente) food and service, the view from our rooms, the quality of the food, sleep quality, concierge recommendations......everything was perfecto! We were most impressed that the Lillianna, the daughter of the original owners would come by and greet us during dinner. She was so pleasant and positive, really made us feel welcome. Any request we made of the staff was met with a "can-do" attitude which made us feel extra special. While we were touring around the Amalfi Coast, we had lunch/dinner at many other locations and never experienced the quality of food or service we did at Tridente. Worth every dime!
