Simply breathless. This Hotel is carved in the rocks. The view is simply amazing. There is also a direct access from the sea. The only problem we had had is the room....water was dripping in the ceiling light , impossible to sleep and also dangerous . Asked to change the room but apparently impossible as the hotel was fully booked....

A member of Relais Chateaux , this magical property has the most iconic terrace in the Amalfi Coast overlooking the sea and Positano itself from the distance . Why 5 stars???? This hotel provides one of the best...

The Hotel Il San Pietro di Positano has got to be one of the finest hotels in the world. The view from every room is exceptional, the restaurants are incredible. If you are unable to stay here (there are only 62 rooms) definitely take the time to get dressed up and come here for a glass of prosecco at the...

In the last 10 years, we have stayed here more than 10 times. This is simply the best Hotel in Italy, service is perfect, Food great, room's outstanding, and the views are to die for. If you are rich or just want to be treated that way, this is the place to go. We will be back soon.

If you have stayed there then you know what I am talking about and if you are planning your first trip to Positano then this should save you the time and hassle to find the best place to stay. Il San Pietro can not be beat, the location is superb, only 3 mins away from town (they provide free transportation)...

Incredible hotel. Daily complimentary boat ride for swimming in the sea. The hotel has its own gardens and the food is more than fresh and delicious. Incredible views from every room in the hotel. Service was impeccable. We went for a birthday and seemingly every staff member knew when we mentioned our room number. We were given Champagne and cakes...

Stayed for a week in early October, 2014. The "season" ends here in late October and the hotel closes, but the last few weeks are usually very, very nice. Less crowded, often ( but not always) better weather, and generally very peaceful. What they sell here is luxury,wrapped up in tasteful elegance, all in a comfortable resort style. The service...

The most perfect hotel: the setting, the staff, the food, the atmosphere. So effortlessly elegant. Special touch from Vito and Carlo, having the owners there makes the whole hotel run so smoothly.
