We booked this hotel for the last 2 nights of our 3 week honeymoon in Italy after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. The location is perfect and the hotel is gorgeous. We booked a room with a sea view and it was well worth it, the view from the balcony was stunning. We were given vouchers for welcome drinks in the bar which was a nice touch. The mini bar in the room had a good selection of drinks which were reasonably priced. We ate in the hotel restaurant on our last night and the food was outstanding we had a couple of meals in neighbouring restaurants during our stay and the meal we ate here was in a different league. We dined on the terrace overlooking the beach which was pretty special, the waiter even brought a blanket out for me in case I was chilly! Overall it was a brilliant experience and we would love to return for a longer period. On departure it was worth arranging a porter who transported our luggage to the top of the hill for a small fee.

My husband and I visited Positano April 9 -11. We found the hotel staff at Buca di Bacco to be extremely friendly and helpful, and we loved our room. The view off our spacious deck was incredible, we looked over the beach a few stories down and over the church dome to the colorful homes on the opposite side of the ravine. The room was quite large as was the bathroom. The breakfast buffet had lots of options. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

From check-in to check-out, staff and service were superb. Add to this a great location right at the shoreline and a really good restaurant and its hard to find anything to complain about. We also took. Cooking class while here with the head chef, and it was unbelievably great.

Room Tip: Be sure you are OK with the stairs and ramps up to the street as cars can't take you all the way...

Our 2-night stay at the Buca di Bacco was incredible. The hotel was exceptionally clean, the staff helpful, the view from our balcony was beautiful, and the location was ideal, with many great nearby restaurants to choose from. Breakfast was included in our stay, and it was outstanding. Internet was not available in the room, but available in the reception area. I would happily stay here again.

We stayed at Hotel Buca di Bacco on the recommendation of our local travel agent. It was a recommendation we were very pleased we took!

We stayed for 2 nights and had a fantastic experience. The walk down to the hotel from the 'square' with luggage was a bit further than anticipated, but well worth it. (Would suggest call ahead and get a porter).

The staff were very helpful and friendly and the rooms were of high standard for any traveller. The views from a room with verandah view are worth seeking out.

Do yourself a favour, and book a few days here if in Positano.

Do the walk up the mountain to get a feel for the beauty of this region

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room with view of beach and French verandah.....you won't believe the view...
