“The way to live”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our friends were staying here and I am telling you we were jealous. Although they spent a small fortune I am thinking it was worth it especially if you were there for a special occasion. They were traveling with their two teenage kids and the kids loved it as well. The service was unbelievable they would not let you lift a finger accept to maybe sign the bill. The rooms and balcony were out of this world and the bathrooms the size of regular hotel room with sea salt for your jacuzzi tub. Next time will splurge and stay at Le Sirenuse!

No complaints here. just a perfect stay in a perfect hotel. Anyone who complains about Le Sirenuse are inexperienced travellers. Rooms are a little smaller than usual but the hotel makes up for that in every other way.

I had been looking forward to this hotel as have heard such great things about it from many people. In most ways it was truly excellent, including the personal welcome from all staff, the beautiful decor and furnishings, the position close to the beach and shops, the lovely breakfast overlooking the bay of Positano, the wonderful gym and spa area, the range of activities on offer for guests and so much more.
To begin with we were accommodated in a very small room which barely fitted our suitcases and had a limited sea view when we had asked for a sea view room. It was too small to spend any time in the room. We were moved to a bigger room for our last two nights with a wonderful view. When you book make sure to check the room dimensions and what kind of sea view you will have.
The swimming pool was a little small and being swimmers we like to do some laps. This was tricky as people tend to stand in the pool. Anyway take the chance to go and swim in the sea. It is truly refreshing and beautiful there.
The free yoga class offered was not great and consisted of the instructor saying one word for each pose - eg. dog, fish etc. It was hard to see her so if new to yoga would be pretty pointless.
The massage I had was outstanding and the steam room and various saunas were excellent. The cold plunge pool should be icy cold if possible.
Breakfast was great. As some others have commented the restaurant and teas/coffees etc are very expensive. The restaurant is very good - try the degustation and enjoy the lovely musicians. And then go out and experience some of the local restaurants.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and we met some lovely people.

Room Tip: Ask for a FULL sea view and check the dimensions of the room.

Have always wanted to stay in this hotel and finally managed it this year.
We were upgraded to a junior suite because of my 'Leading Hotels of the World' membership. The suite was on top floor with wonderful sea views from the balcony. We also had a bottle of chilled Prosecco waiting in our room as well as a bottle LImoncello.
When we arrived by boat from Capri we were met at the dock by Le Sirenuse staff who arranged for our luggage to be taken to the hotel.We then walked with a staff member through the town for the short walk to the hotel. From the very start to when we checked out we greeted by name everywhere we went.This included bars and restaurant.
The hotel has 2 main restaurants.The fancier restaurant, La Sponda, was very elegant , the food was delicious and the service top notch.
The other Champagne restaurant served smaller sharing plates along with a good varity of champagnes. It was fun and also had a high level of service and food quality.
During our stay we also asked the hotel to arrange a tour with a car and driver to Amalfi,Ravello and Sorrento.This was done with a minimum of fuss,the car was a new Mercedes and the driver had a deep knowledge of the area.
In summary : everything was perfection.

Room Tip: Book a room above standard in size,also with a balcony.

This is my second trip to Le Sirenuse and, God Willing, I will go back again and again. The Hotel is immaculate and the staff impeccably well trained. Because it is a small hotel the staff quickly gets to know you, greets you by name, and leans your preferences. The fact that the family is on site insures that you are treated like one of their family. It is an amazing experience both from a physical location and from a service point of view. It is set right in the heart of Positano so walking to the beach, excellent restaurants and shopping is easy and convenient. Anything you need is promptly supplied by the staff and the staff is knowledgeable about dining options, excursions and transportation and can arrange anything you need. On this trip Alitalia lost my luggage and the staff was relentless in following up. My guess is that without their persistence my luggage would never have arrived. I can't thank them enough for that. I too recommend a sea view room, the views are spectacular. I can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Sea view room is the way to go.

We stayed here for the 3rd stop on our honeymoon for three nights. From the start, this hotel was nothing but magical. We were greeted by name upon arrival, and taken to our lovely room overlooking the water. I highly suggest getting an sea view room- preferably one with a balcony. Although our room wasn't terribly large, its was comfortable and beautiful. We loved the bathroom and all the fabulous products, as well as the complementary prosecco and fruit and nuts.

Our first night we took advantage of the complimentary evening boat cruise- which was fabulous. We had a lovely tour with wine and cheese and other snacks. Breakfast was also incredible. Lounging by the pool was also a tranquil delight.

I would not jump to recommend the restaurant or bar to guests of the hotel- we felt they were overpriced and just not really worth it- we would enjoy these views at breakfast, at the pool, or from our room!

I also had an amazing massage during our stay here. The spa was very top notch and not to be missed!

I can't imagine a better way to spend your honeymoon then this romantic hotel in Positano- while it was right in the town itself, you did not feel crowded or overwhelmed while there- almost like staying in your own little heaven in Positano.

Room Tip: Request a deluxe sea view with a balcony!
