My husband and I had stopped one day in Positano while we were on a Med. cruise a few years ago and we vowed we would come back some day. So, our chance came up to add a few days of R&R after a 10 ten tour of Sorrento and Amalfi. It was brilliant!!! Read the other reviews to hear about the walk up and down the hill, this report is all about the hotel. First the hotel is immaculate, even with a down-pour outside they kept it clean as a whistle. The front desk staff was wonderful, they even upgraded our room for the first night because we had to wait a bit. Our first room was right out of an Italian movie: sky high ceilings, lovely tile floors, a marble bathroom with EVERY thing you would ever want, and water pressure galore! The patio doors opened onto a deck that could handle a 20 person party, and it was surrounded by bougainvillea for privacy. When they told us the next day we were to be moved to our regular room I thought "oh well at least we got one night in a great room"...boy was I wrong. Our next room (they did all the moving for us very nicely), was even better than the first. To enter our second room you had to walk through the front garden area which was enchanting!Through the garden and up two steps, your welcomed by two large green shutter doors that is actually the entrance to your room. We even had a bride taking pictures here one day. This room mimicked the first in its impeccable decor, high ceilings, amazing bathroom, and ocean views. Truthfully I thought this room had more charm than the first. Admittedly I review a lot but I hardly ever gush...I'm gushing now!!! The next time we are in Positano (which will happen), you can find me right here, just look for the girl with a big smile and a glass of wine in hand.

Room Tip: Ocean view as as good (if not better) than ocean front.

We stayed (2 couples) for 3 nights recently. The rooms, views, food, and service were wonderful. Only 5 minute walk to boat to Capri. Like others have said going down to hotel (it is at sea level) thru the village shops was fun but the walk up was a struggle. Like others said let porters take luggage up to top where cabs, etc. will meet you.

Room Tip: Ask for superior rooms on 4th floor. Balcony has room for table, 2 chairs and 2 deck chairs. Incrediblet view in front and sides of balcony. Of course if you can do it take the best rooms they have and you'll have larger balconies but same view.

They're not bad referees for a resume. They all stayed here and Steinbeck's response to the Nobel congratulatory note from the owners of the Buca at the time says, "I'd rather be sitting in front of the Buca. That would be better than a prize." High praise indeed but still well deserved. Welcoming, friendly, excellent restaurant and a great breakfast on the most beautiful balcony, clean, well apportioned and fitted rooms - I could go on. I need to add - a bit on the high side for price but we knew what we were getting in to.

Room Tip: The lift is a little slow so ask for Level 1 or 2 so you only need to use one lift, not two.

Our honeymoon stay at Buca di Bacco was perfect from start to finish. When you arrive someone from the hotel meets you to take your luggage since there are no cars allowed in that part of the town. The staff was english speaking and very courteous. They allowed us to check in early which was very helpful. Our room was accessible by elevator and had it's own outside terrace. Inside there was a spacious room with plenty of storage for luggage so you could unpack and feel at home. There was a writing desk, a television, a queen sized bed, and a very spacious bathroom with a large bathtub and plenty of toiletries. Beach towels were also provided in case you wanted to go to the beach which was directly below the hotel, just a few steps away. The restaurant was amazing, and there is also a bar where you can purchase gelato, alcoholic beverages, and soft drinks or water. There is a fragrance diffuser in the hallway of the hotel, and the scent is called "Mellograno" - it smelled amazing and we even bought our own smaller version to take home, so now our bathroom smells like Buca di Bacco :)
