“Loved every minute!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

First off, the location is unbeatable. Right on the beach, a 2 minute walk to the ferry port and next to all the restaurants and shops. Even if the hotel was not good, I'd recommend it for the location alone. But the hotel IS good, very good. Service is excellent, everyone is very helpful and friendly. Everyone from the reception staff to the maids and handymen all have a greeting and a smile for you. The room (we had a classic double, I think its the most basic room and least expensive room they have) and it was fabulous. It was spacious, nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was large as was the "small" (their words) terrace with a fabulous view. We didn't eat at the restaurant but did have drinks at the Terrace Bar which was a lot of fun. If you go to Positano, you have to stay here!

Room Tip: Not sure there's a bad room in the house!

We have just stayed at Buca di Bacco for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. Our room was an executive room with lounge area and terrace and well worth the money spent. Our son stayed in a double with a view and was very happy too (although he was able to come and spend time with us which gave him privacy and space!). The hotel staff are very obliging and helpful. They recommended a restaurant and car service for a trip to Amalfi and Ravello and we had a wonderful day topped off by a very special meal at Villa Maria in Ravello. The views from our terrace were superb and the hotel is in the best position to take advantage of the beach, the better beachside restaurants and all boat trips. Pay the extra to get a porter to deliver your bags. We would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Room 36 is recommended.

My wife and I went to Italy on our honeymoon and fell in love with Positano. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Buca di Bacco. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was just perfect; awesome French doors that opened up to a balcony overlooking an unbelievable view and the staff always kept the room very neat and clean. I would not hesitate to book our next stay at Buca di Bacco.

Warm welcome by efficient and friendly staff. The rooms were clean, comfortable and roomy. The views from the rooms were wonderful over the sea and town of Positano. The breakfast choice was extensive the view from the terrace was wonderful.
The food in the restaurant was excellent. All the front of house staff had a good command of the English language. I would go back and stay at this hotel again!!

Room Tip: All the rooms had sea views.

We spent the last 4 nights of our 25 day vacation at this hotel. It was everything we could have hoped for. The room was large and beautifully appointed. The bathroom was immaculate and had every amenity. The large terrace was amazing and overlooked the beach, and part of the town. We loved sitting there with a bottle of wine and enjoying the views. They were spectacular! We ate at the restaurant two nights because it was so good. Breakfast was unbelievable and had the best selection of any hotel we stayed. Hotel and dining staff were excellent. This hotel is located in a great location if you are traveling by boat, as the dock is very close to the hotel. Porters are available for luggage for a very reasonable price. We loved Positano and this hotel!

Room Tip: Book a room with a terrace!

This hotel is awesome. Great service, great location and very well appointed. Rooms are stunning and worth the stay by themselves. Staff are excellent and the breakfasts are to die for as was the dinner we had in the hotel restuarant. We did a 12 day trip on the Amalfi and the Buca di Bacco was our favourite. Would come back in a flash.

My husband & I just spent 4 days on our honeymoon at this hotel and we were slightly disappointed. The hotel staff was EXCELLENT, especially Roberta! Very attentive and happy to serve. We couldn't of been more pleased with the service. But the hotel itself was run down and definitely not 5 star quality. Tbs room was average bed was hard as as a rock and towels stiff. Our honeymoon view was a wall. Every night the maid would do turn down service which included folding the sheets in a corner. Then she shut our air conditioning off everyday!!! We came back from hot beach to a hot room. If I'm paying for a room I'm sorry I don't care about saving electricity I want to be comfortable! Location view was beautiful but what a hike down the mountain with the luggage. Good luck finding a blue porter to help with luggage.
