2 nights on the AC, want some lux. Please advise!

We are rounding out our delayed honeymoon with two nights on the coast. We are not set on one town in particular, but have been looking at Sorrento and Positano. We are fine with a bit of a splurge, but to us that means spending $600/night as opposed to under $200. I see that it is pretty easy to drop some serious cash in this area, so $600 may not get us as far as we thought. Can anyone suggest a hotel where it will feel truly special that also has sea views and within our budget? One more thing, we will be there quite soon; in the first week of September in fact, so we will obviously have less to choose from then if we had planned ahead.

Thanks in advance!

Better get on booking.com or some other site ASAP if you are talking Sept. 2013. Sort reslts by "rating" per "all reviewers" or otherwise by input from people who've reviewed. Reviews are nearly always genuine, fakes are fairly obvious, so overall it's a fairly reliable system. Then just choose something that appeals to you and falls within your budget. If you find something interesting you can troll for specific input here in the forum or just check out the reviews here on TA re the potential property. We've been using this method for the last several years without fail. (So far!) Good luck!

You can also check www.venere.com to see what is still available. Sorrento is not on the AC so if you want AC - do check: www.positano.com - to see the villages that are on the AC and what they offer.

In Positano, you could check (though I doubt there will be availability, one never knows) the Marincanto - beautiful hotel with pool and gorgeous views.

But, again, just seeing what may still be available is key - hotels for that time of year book up in advance of 9 months and in some cases, even more these days.

Good luck!
