This place deserves all the great reviews its got as it was amazing. The reception staff were so nice and upgraded us free of charge and presented us with a bottle of prosecco. The breakfast was really good and offered so much, the hotel is in the prime spot for Positano and the restaurant was at a very high quality.

We went there on our honeymoon. The hotel could have charged triple what it did, and we still would go back. We had a beach-side balcony with a breathtaking view. The room was perfect. The town was perfect. The beach was perfect. In a word: perfect. The only complaint is that we did not stay longer.

What a find! We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, the delicious breakfasts, the location and...the wonderful airconditioning! Our beds were very comfortable, the room was adequate size and we were so pleased to come back from a day of sight seeing in hot, hot, hot July to find a very cool, welcoming room.

Buca di Bacco is worth the trip to Italy on its own, let alone as part of a four-city trip across the country. From the friendly staff to the beachfront location, and from breakfast on the patio to wine on the room-front terrace, Buca di Bacco is perfection in every way. If we ever make it back to Positano, we'd... More

We did not stay at the Buca di Bacco, although I can suggest that it's location is ideal for proximity to the beach. We were primarily interested in the cooking school which is held in the hotel kitchen starting about 3:30pm. The hotel limits the number of participants to 6 which was perfect for our group. On arrival we were... More

Sea views, comfortable rooms, personable and accommodating staff, tasty breakfasts overlooking the beach. The made sure that our party off 5 had adjoining rooms...we did not even have to request it. Had a very early departure for which they prepared a little breakfast.
