First class operation...beautiful setting, amazing gardens. Every employee treats you as if you were the only guest. Impeccable service. Beautiful views from any area. Food outstanding! Don't bother to eat anywhere else in Positano. Beautifully appointed rooms. Be sure to try the drink called Elephants Milk-very refreshing

We could not be more pleased with our INCREDIBLE experience at Il San Pietro. Our family stayed here for a week in May 2014 and could not have been more pleased with our experience. It was, in a word, magical. From the accomodations to the staff, everything was perfect, and exceeded our expectations in every way. It's difficult to imagine...

We stayed 5 days. The only downside of our experience is that the pool bar stops serving food at 5 pm and the restaurant opens at 8 pm. Four-thirty is too early for dine, and 8 is too late for us, so we ate in Positano at the beachfront restaurants every night where we could eat at 6:30or 7:00, so...

Everything the most effusive reviews of the il San Pietro are true. I'll try to be additive and not repetitive: 1. The location cannot be beat. Don't for a second let the slight remove from Positano center dissuade you. The shuttle van runs 24/7 and gets you there within five minutes. We never waited more than five minutes for a...

After our baby boy, now almost 2, was born, my wife and I haven't taken a meaningful vacation together in almost 3 years. As with any growing family, we had succumbed to the joy of life but a bit of neglect in our marriage. It was imperative that we spend some time together to reconnect and, of course, recharge our...

We have stayed in many Relais-Chateaux but Il San Pietro di Positano has been the best experience EVER! The staff is really great. It's like a big happy family and it shows.

I'm afraid that my review won't shed new light on Il San Pietro as our stay was as memorable as those of so many other reviewers. I was traveling with my wife and kids and frankly was a little concerned the kids would not be well received given the clientele, but happily the staff was very welcoming. The location and...

Straddling the heights above fabled Positano and the most spectacular look-out point, the Il San Pietro. The hotel built on terraces on the rock which projects far into the sea on the Amalfi coast. The panoramic terrace is paved with ceramic tiles that depict marine scenes from the 17th century. To travel between the reception where we were meeting up...
