Perched on a cliff facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, this hotel with private access to the beach, offers breathtaking views of Positano's seascape. This was the trade off for choosing Marincanto over another hotel located in the city center. It's a good 15-min downhill and uphill climb between hotel and Centro with shops along the way and postcard perfect photo ops. With all the pasta and pizza you'll be having, you definitely need the walk. We stayed in the villa (thank you Marincanto for the upgrade!) and it was fantastic! Our huge private balcony was a regular spot to enjoy some aperitivo with an awesome view. The hotel is clean and well furnished. Breakfast daily was a decent spread. Staff and service were superb. Enza, the front desk staff/concierge, was very nice and helpful. We did great in choosing Hotel Marincanto as our home base for our 10-day visit to Positano/Amalfi Coast.

Room Tip: Villa 1 has the best view. The private balcony is likely bigger than the hotel's standard room.

This hotel is situated high above the sea. Our room had a fourposter king bed and was a good sized room. The bathtub was in a separate section giving you a private balcony type space giving you a spectacular view. Give yourself time to take the steps down the steep hill to the beach, Well worth it even the climb back up. The buffet breakfast is served on the balcony overlooking the sea. I recommend taking boats to the various islands towns, and busses to the inland towns. One of my favorites was Ravello. Walk down the hill and eat dinner by the sea. Enjoy it all.

After 25 years of dreaming of a visit to Positano I was finally able to make it there last summer. We could not get a reservation at San Pietro so I booked 4 nights at the Hotel Miramare and 2 at the Marincanto. Thank goodness we did because it saved our trip. The Marincanto is clean and modern. The rooms are large and well appointed. It has an elevator that takes you and your bags up the hill. The pool is simply spectacular. Enza at the front desk took special care to make certain that our visit was perfect. The location and view are wonderful. It is truly one of the most wonderful hotels in the world.

Pros - View of Positano was great, room was big and clean, breakfast was a decent spread, property is well furnished. Hotel staff were polite, well informed and made great recommendations for dinners.

Cons - it's a 20 mins walk uphill if you arrive with luggage by boat but most hotels are located on the hilltop anyway. There is direct beach access by a very very steep staircase which takes 5 mins - it's not really a bad thing but just in case you have elderly or kids with you.

This may be one of my favorite hotels in the world because it is so beautiful. Be sure to ask for assistance with your luggage upon arrival and departure as they are happy to assist with the stairs. Breakfast was traditional European style on a beautiful veranda overlooking the ocean. Free Wifi in rooms was a great added feature. Staff was fantastic prior to and after arrival. A wonderful stay. If I could I would move there and live at the hotel in a heartbeat! Pool is so relaxing overlooking the ocean.
