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...

We seriously wish we could have stayed longer because it was unreal and I think I could have moved in. Buca di Bacco is one for the books and it will always be on of my favorites. Positano is a must see in Italy. Do not miss it!

I did quite a bit of research before selecting this hotel in Positano! And I'm pleased I with my choice. Its not the most fanciest hotel there or a lavish 5 star but it has the main ingredients needed for a fabulous stay. It doesn't have a swimming pool though. I think all rooms have a view. Make sure you...

We only stayed here one night (and regretted not booking it for the other nights we were here) and loved it. The location can't be beat. It's right in the smack of town overlooking the beach and water. No steep steps to climb! The rooms are spacious with large terraces overlooking the water and town. We dined on our balcony...

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!
