Just came home from an amazing stay at Hotel Buca di Bacco. The best accommodations, helpful staff, great breakfast and beautiful views. Location was the best, right on the beach. You right there to catch the ferry to neighboring places like Capri or Almafi. Beautiful hotel in Positano.

Just returned from a 3 night stay. It was our first visit to Positano, a charming small village formed around a small beach front rising up through a steep mountain. Positano is definitely not suited to families with very young children, disabled or elderly holiday makers. Lots of stairs, very steep pathways and non existent street parking. I suspect 2...

First and foremost the cleanliness of this hotel is simply outmatched. I'm fairly well traveled and nowhere have I ever been had a more clean environment. The staff is CONSTANTLY cleaning the common areas and rooms and it shows. The included breakfast is quite good with a spectacular ocean view that just never gets old. Make sure to pony up...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel. My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed here for 3 nights in early April, 2017. The staff was so helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was amazing. The location is great as well. The view from our balcony overlooked the Duomo as well as the colorful homes perched on the...

Reception and all service staff were very helpful and cordial. Our beachfront room on the third floor had a balcony and a great view of the pool area, the ocean, and sunrise- magnificent. Food in the tavern for dinner and breakfast was good. Especially liked the lowcountry shrimp and grits. They surprised my husband with a slice of chocolate cake...

This hotel is the absolute best! Great location, views, food and service. We loved everything about our stay at Bucca di Bacco and Positano and can't wait to go back. The hotel is nestled right in the heart of town and directly on the beach. Amazing!

We loved our stay at Buca di Bacco. Our balcony boasted the best views we had throughout our trip (even walking around Positano, the view from our room was the best)! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hotel and room were clean and the hotel is convenient to anything you could possibly need. We would absolutely return again.

Awesome hotel, awesome room, awesome location!!!! We had a room that was done up so nice, tile floors, shower in a turret with a beach glass floor, beautiful bed with a comfy mattress, balcony off our room. Got to watch people on the beach, ferries going in and out. Could not have picked a better spot. Lots of restaurants on...

Wonderful location, staff and atmosphere. Beautiful views and just a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The hotel itself is full of character and makes any stay in Positano a memorable one. If I was going to travel back to Positano with family or solo I would stay here again.

This place has awesome views for all of their rooms. We left our french doors open 24 hours. You can hear the waves crashing on the shore (doesn't even sound real). And the balcony is amazing! I could spend literally the whole day on it. If you have a good balcony be sure to make use of the room service...
