Thank you Il San Pietro Team for another amazing experience at your oasis of peace, beauty, and nirvana!

Everything about this hotel is memorable for all the right reasons. Exceptional staff. Superb dining whether in Zass, the main dining room or at Carlino's by the sea. Fantastic location, just far enough away from all the day-trippers in Positano but close enough to visit in the evening. Beautiful bedrooms with balconies and luxurious public areas. Sensational views, a heated... More
