The opportunity to sit on the balcony of one of the water-facing rooms of the Saraceni and watch the beach scene is an integral part of Positano as we have come to know and love it. Since we first came here the rooms have been remodeled—so the prices have gone up but for my money this hotel is still a great bargain especially when compared to the super luxe San Pietro and Sireneuse which are admittedly more luxurious but not nearly so well situated to be part of, but not overwhelmed by, the action. The hotel restaurant is really one of the better ones in town and the pool is a very pleasant place to loll around.
The breakfast is fine (though neither the coffee nor the orange juice is top drawer) but in an overly large banquet room which seems kind of lonely. That concern melts away, however, when you take the plate you’ve filled from the buffet to the glassed in porch area where you actually sit to eat it—and can see more than180 degrees of beach and blue water. It’s a great way to start the day. But it’s those balconies overlooking the beach that make it THE place to stay IMO. If you don’t want to pop for a balcony room, stay somewhere else. That’s what this place is all about.
