“Perfect Amalfi Coast getaway!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle and truly experience an Italian holiday amongst old world charm and classic surroundings look no further than the Covo Dei Saraceni. My wife and I spend 4 nights here as a retreat after "running around in Rome" in for a few days and were surprised beyond belief at everything the Covo had to offer. This property has the best views and location in all of Positano-yiu will shed tears when you walk in and yiu will shed tears when you depart. The views from the terrace pool were incredible-the beach location was incredibly convenient and the service was second to none. We will definitely be back! A perfect vacation getaway in a place you can only otherwise dream about

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for four nights at the beginning of our trip and had a great time. The staff was outstanding and did everything they could to make our stay pleasant; there was eve a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room when we arrived. We stayed in room 31 which has a very large terrace and private pool. The retractable awnings allowed us to layout in the comfort of our own terrace, but the common pool on the rooftop was so nice that we elected to spend our days there. The only complaints I had about the room were that the air conditioning was malfunctioning for the first night so the room was a little hot, and the private pool on our terrace never got any warmer than room temperature (I thought it was a hot tub when looking online).

We took the cooking class that is offered by the Chef from the hotel's restaurant (Tommaso), along with the head waiter (Paulo) who translated. This is a must-do experience when staying at the hotel. It is a one-on-one session with the Chef as he walks you through how to create your own Italian meal.

The hotel has prime location in the city, right on the beach. While the walk from the city's car service drop off location to the hotel was further than I would have liked, the porter service brought our bags down for us (at an extra cost of 5 euro per bag).

Room Tip: Be sure to get yourself a room with a terrace, as we very much enjoyed spending time overlooking the...

Very nicely appointed and it's right on the beach, but quiet. Very accommodating staff and views are all great in positano. Old world flavor.
Bedding is a little course and it really isn't a king bed, just two twins pushed together, made separately..but it's Italy. Large very clean and again the staff is outstanding...

My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a two week trip to Italy. Overall the trip was nothing less than fabulous, with our 4 day stay at Covo Dei Saraceni (Pirate's Cove) being the absolute high point. When I walked in my breath was taken away by the spacious, immaculate and spectacularly decorated public area and the lobby. The breakfast room is just beautiful and the breakfast was absolutely first class, with top quality food, preparation of that food, selection and service. Our room overlooked the sea with a balcony offering a view that cannot be compared to anything I have experienced before. The bathroom was sterile and decent sized with plenty of nice towels and toiletries. The rooftop pool is large, warm and inviting...again, plenty of large nice towels.
As much as the building itself is top shelf, the staff is the finest anywhere. The front desk staff was excellent, all of whom, spoke better English than most Americans. All the service people anticipated any need and fulfilled it before a guest could ask...I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that if you are planning a stay here you will be very happy with that choice.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any unfavorable rooms in the hotel

We only enjoyed a day visit as we were booked into a hotel on Capri.
Covo dei Saraceni must rate as one of the finest hotels on the Amalfi coast.
We were really impressed.
Even though we were there at a busy time of the day there is a feeling of quite serenity about the place.
The sea water pool is just wonderful.
Although we did not stay overnight we did have a look at the rooms which are totally up to 5 star standards.

The hotel was great, it's location right on the beach makes you feel like you are almost sitting on the water
The staff were fantastic, especially our friends Rosario and Antonio at the bar each evening ensuring we had everything we needed as we worked
The rooms were a good size with good bathroom facilities , and the pool was a great place to cool off and have a snack
Would certainly recommend the hotel to others visiting Positano
