We have stayed at this hotel many times and will continue to return for many years to come. The San Pietro is an outstanding hotel, family run, beautiful location, understated luxury, lovely staff and excellent cuisine. What more could one possibly want? The hotel is situated just outside the town of Positano, with stunning coast views and an iconic terrace.... More

Absolutely the most amazing vacation destination. Stunning views that don't seem real. No picture can do it justice. Attentive staff that anticipated my every need. And the food--I ate better in my three days than I've ever eaten my life. The service was impeccable. The hotel is quiet and peaceful with lots of patios and verandas to relax, swim in... More

I have been through many beautiful hotels throughout Italy, but this one beats all! From the moment we arrived at the carpark, we were welcomed by the staff like old friends.

Stunning location, amazing hotel, fabulous attentive staff, wonderful food... along with very dear friends, what more could you ask for?! Thanks to all at the San Pietro for making our stay with you so memorable. But for the photos, I'd be wondering if it wasn't all a spectacular dream! We'd love to come back again....

We have wanted to stay at the Il San Pietro for 5 years but decided to save it for a special occasion. So glad we did. Not the cheapest place to stay in the world but as the saying goes " you pay for what you get" and believe me it was worth every single penny. The whole hotel excells... More

Whilst having travelled extensively for both business and pleasure for many years, this is the first time I have “put pen to paper” for a public review.

I’m truly sorry for what happened as one of our primary goals is the quality of the care we provide to all our guests.

What should have been a completely tranquil resort experience was repeatedly disrupted by three young children in our hallway. Not a complete vacation spoiler, but definitely not what I had hoped for in a luxury getaway. And these kids were MUCH below the hotel's minimum age of 10. I was especially surprised by management's response to another review addressing the... More
