Great room with a covered balcony overlooking the beach. Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. Our visit was at the end of the season, so the hotel and area were not crowded. Hiked the Path of the Gods with Fulvio from Sorrento Hiking, which was arranged by the hotel. Knowledgeable and friendly guide arranged by the hotel.

We stayed at Buca di Bacco as part of a self-guided hiking trip and it was by far our favorite hotel! It will be on our short list of favorite hotels - one that will come up in conversation with each other - "remember Buca di Bacco?". We did upgrade to seaview with balcony. The room is big, airy, bright...

A++ Fantastic service!! Incredible views!! From the moment we stepped into Buca di Bacco until we left 4 days later, we were treated to exceptional service. For those that have traveled with teens, spacious rooms that allow for them to have their "own space" are essential - the sitting area and balcony made our stay in Positano absolutely wonderful! Breakfast,...

Stop looking anywhere else for where to stay in Positano. Perfectly located right on the beach, if has all the comfort of an upscale hotel with all the charm of a family run B&B. Location-wise, you can't find better than this. The rooms (we stayed in room 32) are amazing. Spacious and beautiful, with lovely crafted tile floors, they boast...

We had a wonderful 5 night stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with our choice. It is a great location, close to the beach, restaurants, shops and ferries. In Positano, one must consider the location in regards to walking up/down hills and stairs, so it was great that we usually had to walk downhill to get back to...

We stayed in this hotel for four nights. The location is great as the hotel is on the beach, although you should bear in mind that to get to the hotel from the town you will need to walk down and carry your luggage. The hotel does have a porter service. We found the staff was courteous and very friendly....

This hotel is the stuff dreams are made of. It's beautiful, clean, comfortable, and with the most amazing views. I had to keep pinching myself that it wasn't a dream. The breakfast was to die for, and eating it outside on the terrace watching the ocean and the boats coming in to the jetty was superb.

The hotel was first rate. The room was clean and beautiful. Tile work was a strong theme all over Positano. The hotel had lots of it. Our room had a beautiful balcony overlooking the beach and Mediterranean Sea. Breakfast was included and was almost anything you could think of. The hotel staff was extremely helpful.

This property is wonderful!!! The staff and location have no comparison. The hotel restaurant and cooking class deserve 10 stars. We had room number 10 with a large terrace offering incredible views of the sea and house gracing the hills. The ferry pier is minutes away as well as great shopping. I will stay here again and again and recommend...
