When we planned our trip to Positano, we were torn between staying at Le Sirenuse or il San Pietro. We talked to many friends and decided to stay at San Pietro due to the private beach club and balcony in every room. It was the best decision we made! The property and view were spectacular, and we really enjoyed having... More

Stayed here for 5 nights during the second half of our honeymoon. The interior and grounds are stunning.

Thank you so much, Jfrondos. The hotel was built around the cliff and then only some rooms overlook Positano. But all of them have a private terrace with sea view and many overlook the village of Praiano, which personally I find equally impressive (some guests even prefer it). Again, thank you very much for your useful advice, which we will... More
