We took the family for three nights in May. We had three rooms, all had beautiful views and were amazingly appointed. The restaurant whether for breakfast or for dinner deserved it's Michelin Star rating. Already planning a return trip.Might be our #1 hotel in the world!!!

The Hotel San Pietro in Positano is an amazing hotel. Not only is the setting dramatic and beautiful on a point of land opposite Positano, but everything about the service was perfect. Breakfast and dinner at Zass was delightful and cocktails on the terrace has to be the best sundowner experience in my experience. We met Vito Cinque, the owner,...

It is hard to imagine that anyone actually designed a setting like this. A vertical fishing village cascading down the side of a mountain. To really take it in, you want to be on the side of the village. The location of Il San Pietro just to the west of the town is in a word, breathtaking. And the facilities...

Read this review carefully, because this hotel is over-the-top fabulous! The hotel is a true gem without exaggeration or fanfare. Located on a strategic location with amazing views of Positano, I believe that all rooms have a very large balcony/terrace -- although not all have a view of Positano. The beds are wonderfully comfortable; the bathrooms are big and modern....

Il San Pietro is one of my very favorite places in the world. The view literally brings tear to my eyes, and I wait all year long to be reunited with it again. I highly recommend this place to all of my friends and family that are visiting the Amalfi Coast, and always say if there is one thing you...

This place is just amazing. Will probably be the most beautiful and friendliest place you ever visit. The view of Positano is hard to describe, as words (and the attached photos) wont do it justice. The staff, room, restaurant, etc were really outstanding. Not too fancy, but still had the 5 star feel. We took a free boat ride, complete...

Every detail is covered by the San Pietro. I can not recommend this hotel enough. The breakfast was exceptional and gigantic. The service received by the hotel staff was always exceeding my expectations. Most of the staff has worked there for 20-40 years and they have such a pride in working there.
