“Loved this hotel”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We stayed in a beautiful executive room with a terrace & sea view. It was a large colorful room with a king bed & a full view of the water. We didn't have great weather so whenever the sun was out we sat on the terrace. Breakfast was good (although too much cake). The waitstaff was friendly and the view on the hotel terrace was amazing. The people manning the front desk were so friendly and helpful. They made dinner reservations for us and changed some we already had. The location is great (you must leave your car in a lot and they will have your luggage brought to the hotel). We walked everywhere (shopping in this town is great) & took a ferry to Amalfi. The ferry wasn't running every day as the weather was bad and the water was very choppy. The restaurants in Positano are great - fresh fish every day. I can't wait to come back to this town when the weather is better!!

We love, love, loved our stay here. The staff was extremely helpful not to mention the ocean view breakfast every morning. My husband and I were contemplating on which hotel to choose since we had never been to Positano before, and once we arrived we were so glad to have chosen Buca di Bacco. They are located within 5 min walking distance once you get off the ferry. We took the ferry from Naples and once you get to Positano you'll see that everything goes up, so you'd need to walk (sandals or tennis shoes a must). We had 2 big heavy luggages so our 5 min walk to Buca was quite simple compared to other couples arriving.
They have 2 good restaurants also overlooking the ocean. Our room was gorgeous, we had our own balcony overlooking the ocean as well as 2 front lawn chairs where we were able to relax. Amazing Stay!!!

This was a beautiful hotel with a stunning view and only steps from the beach! My husband and I loved our stay here and will absolutely be coming back. The customer service was amazing and something we really appreciated. We also had dinner multiple times at the restaurant as the food was delicious.

Where do I begin? We had a beautiful room with a balcony / terrace, overlooking the beach, with a stunning view. The room was beautifully decorated, with the very best amenities. The service was second to none! They also had an amazing breakfast buffet overlooking the beach!

Room Tip: Do yourself a favor. Upgrade to a balcony room. Ask for Room # 36! You won't regret it!

Great location & great staff. Once you get over the not so grand entrance the rest of the hotel is amazing. Wait until you see the breakfast area & the spread of food. Great place for honeymooners. Thanks Buca di Bacco.

I recently spent 5 nights at the Buca di Bacco with my extened family for my 50th birthday and had a wonderful time. I stayed in a standard room as this was all that was available however they were of a good size, very clean, nicely appointed and had a breathtaking seaview with a french balcony. The breakfast which was included was delightful as were the staff. The reason why we chose this hotel was because it did not have too many stairs (like many of the properties in Positano) and was smack bang in the middle of everything. Would definitely recommend although the one "fault" was that it did not have a swimming pool so that may sway some guests towards an alternate property.

Room Tip: Always pay for a room with a view - wouldn't be the same without it.

Everything about our stay here was perfect. The hotel is beautiful, clean and lovely in every way. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. The view from our room was breathtaking. A room with an ocean view is a must and worth every dime. The restaurant provided an amazing meal with seating overlooking the ocean. The location of this hotel is perfect for enjoying all of Positano without being crowded with tourists. You are steps from the beach and the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. Take a day trip to Capri arranged by the hotel. We simply can't say enough about Hotel Buca di Bacco. By far our favorite hotel in Italy.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms with a view are a MUST. You can't miss out on the breathtaking views.
