We had a wonderful honeymoon stay at Il San Pietro. We could not have asked for a better experience. The staff was friendly and attentive to our every need without being overbearing. The breakfast was out of this world! We dined at Zass on our first night as well as lunch at Carlino. Both places were delicious. My husband and...

I loved our stay in this hotel, as it has it all: location, food and service. It is located outside of Positano which is a plus. There is a service to drop you off and pick you up if you want to go to town, so the fact that it is located outside is not a detriment at all. The...

Thank you so much for your review, frnklw. We loved to read about your enthusiastic experience. Indeed, the private terrace of room 53 is one of our favourites and enjoys a great view from Praiano to Capri.

One of the most unique and special hotels in the world. Five-star service across the board from a staff that is clearly proud of their work. From beginning to end, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Highly recommended.

It is hard to describe to anyone how remarkable the Il San Pietro location, staff, food, amenities, etc. are. This hotel is simply perfection. If you are even remotely thinking of staying here, please do not hesitate. My wife and I travel all over the world and no other place we have ever stayed has moved us so much. They...

Spectacular location and the world class service that goes with it. Extremely kind staff. High quality breakfast. Fantastic beach, tennis court and beach restaurant for light afternoon bite. Rooms and bathrooms have unique views but would deserve a light make-over/upgrade.

Beautiful hotel in a fantastic setting. Having driven through the chaos of Positano we were looking for somewhere for lunch. We stumbled into this fantastic place. Nice, truly professional service. Beautiful gardens and views of the Amalfi coast. All at a price though. This was the most expensive meal during our two month European trip. Was it worth it; yes...

Thank you for staying with us, BuellRider_S1. The location, just outside Positano (few minutes by complimentary shuttle) is far enough to relax far from the madding crowd.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this spectacular hotel for three nights whilst on a short tour of the Amalfi coast and Capri.

Stayed for 3 nights at the end of a Europe tour that ended in Rome. Took a high speed train to Salerno and the ferry to Positano, where we were picked up by the hotels boat - what a lovely way to arrive at this beautiful hotel.
