Reviewed June 16, 2013

Owners received us with champagne and fruit basket, room right above the ferry dock to Capri, waves crashing underneath our balcony. Incredible view of the sea, also good place for people watching . . Just steps from the beach and rental boats, all the restaurants and shops.
If you are sensitive to noise get a top floor but must face the ocean or the beach. I didn't ask for a softer pillow but could hv used it. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and were incredibly patient with our Italian, since we asked them not to speak English. Antonio-front desk, Antonella & Emmanuelle from hotel restaurant (great ravioli and fish) made our stay unforgettable. Love the flowers and lemon plants all over the hotel. Relaxed and enjoyed our time here.
Best breakfast, try he fresh ricotta and mozzarella cheese, also the cappuccino.

Room Tip: Higher floor less noise

We recently returned from our stay at Covo Dei Saraceni. The location on the beach, proximity to restaurants, shops and activities made this a wise choice in Hotels. Now, add the staff, and you have a quality hotel. We were very pleased with our stay, the staff was very accommodating and couldn't do enough to ensure your stay was memorable. The accommodations were clean and spacious although the wi-fi was periodically un-cooperative.
None the less, a charming property with a quality staff.

Our stay at Covo dei Saraceni was short, but we loved every minute! The staff was very welcoming and helpful. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was beautifully furnished and had a small terrace overlooking the beach. The the bathroom was also very nice and very spacious. We took advantage of the mini-bar and had a glass of prosecco on the terrace when we arrived. Lovely!

The bar and breakfast room are both beautiful - full of light with amazing views.

I definitely wish we had spent more time at this hotel - maybe next trip!

Great location down by the beach and a very beautiful hotel; much nicer than their web-site suggests. We had a junior suite which was huge with a great view. Lovely comfy bed and an excellent breakfast. It was our wedding anniversary and they provided a free bottle of good quality prosecco. Only one criticism; I asked for the hairdryer to be replaced and it wasn't

Room Tip: I think all face the sea. Our junior suite was fab

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Positano and this hotel was perfect! The room was not big, but it had an amazing view of the ocean with a little balcony where we could sit and see the waves coming in. The hotel is right by the water and very close to the main restaurants and stores in Positano and the best part os that you don't have to walk up and down the hills all the time. Staff were helpful and breakfast was good. Definitely recommend it.

We were staying in Positano for a night and were given suite 32 which is refurbished. Beautiful simple decor and a fantastic terrace with unobstructed views of the sea. We had a snack lunch which was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive. A great night away!

My husband and I recently spent six days, during the month of April, in Positano at the Covo Dei Saraceni! It was a dream vacation! We had a beautiful, roomy Junior Suite with the most gorgeous view of the clear blue water below, and Praiano in the distance. It was the perfect central location when wanting to visit the Amalfi Coast. Our accommodations were lovely, which included a large room, bathroom, sitting area and large balcony. You could be happy just staying in your room, but of course the sights to visit didn't permit that. The staff was all friendly and eager to assist. We especially enjoyed spending time at the bar with the most delightful bartender, and the other staff. In the morning the yummy breakfast buffet with the beautiful view was the perfect way to begin your day! Cappuccinos every morning and made to order eggs, also! The actual location of the Hotel within the city is great. It is perfect for catching charter boats for day trips and wonderful for shopping, too! We hopefully, will return to this incredible paradise and stay again at the Covo!!!
