We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! The hotel is beautiful in a great location. The views from the hotel and the rooms is fantastic! Our room was comfortable and large with 2 small balcony's facing the water with the views of the town & a separate room with a large jacuzzi. The reception staff was very nice and helpful, booking us dinner reservations & assisting with anything we needed. Gianni was super nice and fun, he took care of the pool area and pretty much anything that was needed (more champagne, food, towels, etc). The pool was really nice, with an infinity edge and just so nice and relaxing to hang out in. There were various areas you could lay out, on the deck as well as other more private patios. The location was great, high up enough to have the great views but not too far from the main town & beach. There are stairs leading down about a 5 min walk down to the beach. But, going up was tough! Like a 10 min or so walk straight up stairs or you can take a long way like 20 min or so - an inclined road from town (I prefer the stairs its tough but quick!). The entire hotel is build into the mountain so you take the stairs to get everywhere - depending where your room is - we had 5 flights up to the lobby & where breakfast was served, 3 flights up to the pool area. Its just the way it is in Positano. We were fine with the exercise after all the food and wine we were consuming! Would definitely recommend Marincanto for anyone to stay!

Room Tip: We were in room 255 - it was nice & large - 4 rooms - bedroom, living room, jacuzzi room & b...

Beautiful hotel with the most amazing views. In a perfect location to walk down to the beach (lots of steps, but not too bad!) and into the centre of Positano. Staff generally helpful, will book you restuarants and arrange for free shuttles. The pool guywas also great, there everyday to give us towels, bring us food and drink etc.. also the drinks and food were very reasonable!

The only downside i would say is that it was our honeymoon and the hotel were fully aware but there was no special treatment like we recieved in other hotels!

Room Tip: I think a sea view room really is worth the extra money, our balcony had the most beautiful views an...

Lovely rooms with great views,great breakfasts

Thank you trip advisor for helping me find this wonderful hotel! It was the perfect way to end our 2 week trip to Italy! Loved it! Awesome location, staff very friendly and helpful, beautiful grounds and amazing views. We had a spacious corner suite room on the second floor. It had two balconies that took my breath away. Everytime we approached the front desk, we heard guests checking out and commenting to the staff how wonderful their stay was. We love to travel and see new places, but this one is on my list to return to!

Room Tip: It appears that not all rooms at this hotel are equal. Ours was a wonderful corner suite which was...

Let me preface this review by saying that being a NY'er I am not easily impressed. And having been to Italy already, I've learned to accept the fact that the star ratings on the hotels do not equate to what we use in the U.S. The Marincanto, however, far exceeded my expectations on almost every level. The hotel staff was so friendly and accommodating, moreso than I have ever felt in a hotel. From Antonella and Enza at the desk, to Gianni at the pool deck and Raphaella who doubled as waitstaff and bell captain. There was not one time that I would pass one of them in the hall or in the lobby without them stopping to greet me and/or asking me if I was enjoying my stay etc. They all spoke English which was a pleasure, albeit some better than others, and could not do enough for me throughout my stay. The terrace from my room was huge and so floral and beautifully charming, as were the rest of the grounds. The infinity pool was great, and a welcome treat after a hot August day on the beach. The breakfasts consisted of a huge selection of pastries, fresh fruits, eggs, meats and cheeses and cappuccino made to order! The rooms and property were very well maintained and clean. We had friends who stayed at some of the hotels on the beach, and they all loved our hotel when they came to meet us for drinks on the terrace. We also paid much less than they did and clearly got the better deal at Marincanto. Book this hotel, don't bother to look any further - you cannot beat the location, value, and beauty of this hotel...trust me!

We have just had an incredible 5 night stay at hotel Marincanto. Great service, views, and location. Highly recommend staying here, and definately in Positano if you are planning to visit the Amalfi Coast.

We stayed the last 2 days in positano and the merincanto made us feel so special. It was by far the best stay during our 2 week Italy tour.

- thx Antonella for helping us arrange the room for our 2 day stay !

- the man at the front desk covering evenings was fantastic. Always a smile, very helpful with advice on tours and dinner reservations.

- breakfast was memorable with sweeping views of the Mediterranean

- room was very large for Italy with an amazing bathroom and spacious bedroom.

- only downside was not having as much privacy with a room by the main deck.


Thx merincanto for the great stay!
