This hotel is lovely - great position on the beach, fantastic service, pretty rooms and decent food. The buffet breakfast came included in the rate, and is really good as far as buffet breakfasts go (the strawberry profiteroles are decadent for breakfast, but really good!). We had a balcony overlooking the beach and the tiled roof of the church next...

Can't say enough great things about this hotel!!! The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The staff was friendly. The food was great. The location was amazing... right on the beach. The hotel was a little hard to find since its down on the beach, but we were quickly pointed in the right direction by locals. I would highly recommend this...

I'll keep it short as most of the reviews here are the similar. If you haven't stayed here I'll give you rationale of what makes it 'excellent', the staff. Someone has gone out of their way to ensure the staff here are amazing, hard working, and care for the clients who stay there. If not for the staff it would...

I understand why rated number 1. Great location (if you dont mind walking up a hill to reach a cab) and great service. My only reason for not giving five stars was the new paint smell in our room. Took time getting used to but was fine. Same view as Le Sirunuse but 1/3rd the cost. Highly recommend.

After many weeks researching where to stay on our honeymoon in Positano, we found Buca Di Bacco on Trip Advisor. We looked at all the nicest places like the relais and chateaux hotels, but after comparing the prices and the locations this came in at the best, especially considering we went for the Honeymoon suite. We decided to go for...

Just want to endorse what other reviewers have said about this wonderful hotel. Our room on the first floor had a large terrace where we could eat breakfast and sunbathe and it was very well fitted out and even had a slight smell of paint as the whole floor had just been renovated. I'd swear we were the first people...

We stayed 1 night at the Buca di Bacco & all of the comments on here about the location, staff & service are spot on! The resort itself though we found over-rated. We are here on honeymoon & moving around the Amalfi coast visiting different places. Yes, Positano is beautiful but expensive and packed with tourists, many of whom are...

This is a good hotel if you want to be centrally located. Because it is close to the beach it does not offer the panoramic views as other properties situated higher up, but its advantage is that it is well placed to walk to the beach and ferries, as well as being amongst the shops and restaurants. The bus stops...
