“Paradise in Positano”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Clean Comfortable and Beautiful. The difference between this and other great hotels the Staff front desk, maids. wait staff, maintenance all were very pleasant and helpful anytime of day or night. Best service I have ever received! Never needed to ask for anything they just knew ahead of time.

Room Tip: 5th floor Great view room #50

I had timed our holiday to spend my 55th birthday in Positano, and the city totally lived up to my expectations. The Bucca di Baco was also an excellent choice. It is located close to the beach, but is built higher up on the cliff so that rooms overlook the ocean.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Our room was fairly large, decorated in a baroque style and had a large balcony with a water fountain. Breakfast was quite varied. We especially enjoyed using the citrus press to make delicious orange juice.
We had my birthday diner on the terrace and were very pleased with the meal.

I really recommend this hotel in Positano. It is steps away from the beach so you can easily walk out to the ocean. The restaurant in the hotel is wonderful and there all sorts of other great restaurants that are easily accessible. Our room was quite spacious and the bathroom was beautiful and big. We had a balcony with a gorgeous ocean view. The staff is very helpful.

We brought our small dog and there was no problem at all. A great stay in a beautiful hotel and town!

We booked this hotel well in advance, requesting an ocean facing balcony room, we received that but beware, we were placed in a lovely room but the "balcony" was an opening pair of doors without room to even sit on it! Most disappointing. The decent balcony rooms are situated on the second floor, not the 3rd floor. Having said that the staff here are the highlite of this hotel, very friendly, spoke excellent English and were most accommodating. The hotel is located lower down, close to the beach which was convenient for our needs, the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced, we even received a 10% discount card for the restaurant. The room was equipped with a king bed (2 singles joined) a good tv with English channels, a most efficient split system air conditioner that cooled the room well and quietly, room minibar, shower over bath and hairdryer. A pleasant hotel to stay at

After 15 years we were back to Buca di Bacco. Like all important wines, getting older made this hotel really better! Complimenti! The hotel is very well located a few steps from the beach. Rooms with enchanting flowering balconies with a breathtaking view of this lovely city and the sea. We got a room da sogno camera 34, a large room sporting blue and white costiere decor and an awesome view from it's big balcony. Wow !! Superb service done by all concierge staff very efficient and friendly: Bravissimi Roberta, Mario and Lorenzo. Great service at breakfast: nice Salvatore and beautfull and sweet Chanthal made our mornings so nice! At last but not least great houskeeping personnel le signore were always smiling and they have cleaned and made our room nicely and with care. We stayed 8 days and all days were explendid! Thanks all hotel personnel for making our stay in Positano unforgetable...again!

My husband and I have stayed at the Buca di Bacco hotel in Positano twice - once in 2008 and again in 2010. We have been to Venice, Florence, Rome and Taormina and Buca di Bacco is by far our favorite hotel and is in the most magical place on earth - Positano! If you're going to the Amalfi Coast, you must stay there. There is also a great restaurant with the most unbelievably attentive waitstaff.

What a great value ! The staff is wonderful The Chef on premises (Andrea) is charming and skilled ! Very accommodating. Order the zuppe de peshce. The front desk staff helped us select a few hikes in the surrounding mountains.
We stayed in a sweet suite and felt very lucky. We will absolutely return.
THe waiters are incredible and the history of the place adds to its charm.
Gorgeous views, well worth the walk down hill. We could hear the waves at night.
GORGEOUS bathrooms, fantastic linen and bed.

Room Tip: Though I hope it's available when we return....Suite 34 was just restored and is awesome
