Petoskey, Michigan
Reviewed 26 October 2016

We just returned from three nights at Il San Pietro. It is an amazing property. Each room is unique, the property and views are amazing and the service is excellent. The daily breakfast is of very high quality. It is pricey but I would highly recommend it.

I have been reluctant to write a negative review about this beautiful hotel but after a few months I have decided that I must. In short, we were extremely disappointed in our stay particularly after having gotten engaged there 10 years ago and the hotel having such a special place in our hearts. First, the setting and location are obviously...

I'm sorry to read your comment as we try to improve constantly and if this means that someone is not happy with the updated, we'll take the risk. Many people compliment us as they find a better property at each visit. Sometimes the comparison compromises an objective judgment and creates expectations higher than the previous ones. We will certainly treasure...

This hotel is all about the elegance of being. From the views to the decor, the fabulous breakfasts to welcome your day and private beach this is a gold standard "home away from home". Shuttle available on request to and from Positano and staff is happy to help with any other activities like boating, dining reservations, etc.

We booked about 6 months in advance and got the last room available. It was absolutely worth the money for this final stop on our honeymoon. It was tough to do much other than stare at the stunning views up and down the coast. Each location - lobby terrace, pool, room patio, waterfront, and even the bath tub - has...

We had an amazing experience at il San Pietro on our honeymoon. Every member of staff we met was friendly and congratulatory, and the hotel manager made a special point of introducing himself and congratulating us on our wedding. We weren't 100% sure what our experience would be life as a gay couple honeymooning in Italy, but at il San...

We are delighted to read that the stay far exceeded your expectations on such a special occasion. We do not make any difference in treatment because of gender or anything else. We just love treating everyone equally with the same kindness and are proud when guests leave with the desire of coming back. Hope to welcome you soon again.

Fabulous hotel from start to finish: amazing location, lovely rooms, highly professional and personal service and delicious food. The terraces are to die for and Carlino's restaurant must surely be the best beach restaurant in the world. This is the best hotel I have stayed in.

We visited Il San Pietro in early October and were awe stuck by its location and views. The hotel is built on a cliff almost 100 yards above the sea. Even with that one can easily go swimming. There's a seaside restaurant, tennis court, and a flat area with lounge chairs for those who want to get some sun. To...

This has to be the most wonderful hotel we have ever stayed at. I love the beauty and serenity of the resort. The moment you arrive, the manager welcomes you and escorts you to the front desk. I booked this hotel because I loved the idea of taking an elevator down to the beach deck and it did not disappoint....
