This was a beautiful hotel. The view to the ocean was gorgeous and eating breakfast every morning was such a delight looking out on the sea and the town. Very friendly staff and we also had a cooking class. Staff attended to every need and the restaurant was excellent. The hotel is within walking distance of the central town, but...

The hotel is well located and an easy walk to the marina, the town and other shops. We spent each evening on the roof top deck with a beautiful view of Positano. While the facilities were nice, the view was great, the location was great it was the staff that made the stay special. Always helpful, pleasant, willing to give...

Hotel is conveniently situated in mid Positano, easy walking to shops, restaurants and beach, well, as easy as it can be in a vertical town. Rooms are characterful, spacious and comfortable. Food and drink are excellent - a bit pricey, but the pound/euro rate was at an all time low. Terrace and pool areas have great views over the town...

Lovely hotel with delightful staff! Our room had a stunning view and was lovely to sit on our balcony in the evening and enjoy all the lights coming on! Great position. A short walk downhill into town or a shortcut to the beach down 300+ steps from just outside the hotel! Reception staff very helpful with advice and booking of...

The location, staff and rooms are all top-notch. We received a warm welcome and given a short tour of the hotel. We booked the Funny Room which although a bit small had an amazing terrace. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the hotel's restaurant and would recommend even if you are not staying here. The restaurant/bar/pool is beautiful and offers...

We've enjoyed our stay at Hotel Poseidon very much. We wish the first night in Positano that we'd tried the hotel restaurant. The food is wonderful and there was a guitar player playing softly. We sat on a bench swing after diner just enjoying the evening. Our room gives the feel of italy and has a nice view of the...

Had a very nice stay here for 3 nights. Rooms are very clean. Large and well appointed bathroom with pretty green tile. Pool was pleasant, but too small for laps. Enjoyed the view from the common area at night with drinks/snacks. No complaints. Only feedback would be a better mattress and updated decor in the room.

This is a beautiful hotel in a superb location. We had a lovely room with a private balcony and breathtaking view.

This was a perfect location between the beach and the restaurants with an amazing view. We stayed at 3 separate hotels during our week stay in Positano and Poseidon was one of our favorites. It definitely has an older rustic feel of the hotel you get more when visiting Florence or Rome, but the uniqueness was great. I will say...
