The Amalfi Coast is a magical jewel and Le Sirenuse is the gem of Positano. The hotel is perfectly situated perched at the top of a picturesque ledge overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The rooms have the most beautiful views from every room, including the bathroom. We had breakfast (delicious and perfect espresso!) on the patio several times and it's like paradise with the breeze and views overlooking that historic coast. Management has done a great job in maintaining a level of service that seems effortless. Staff at this hotel is warm and friendly and they will go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. The rooms and grounds are impeccably clean.
The first time we stayed at this hotel over 15 years ago, Father Sersale, the matriarch and original owner, took us out on his yacht for a day of swimming and relaxation followed by a dinner in his amazing restaurant where the mouthwatering food kept coming. Our dinner lasted over 4 hours, but we had the most memorable evening ever! The food was so fresh and perfectly prepared, but the star of the evening was Mr. Sersale with his bigger than life personality, so down-to-earth and friendly. It was the first time ever meeting him, but he made you feel like you were an old friend vacationing in his palatial home. He is greatly missed but his hotel lives on and this is one those "must do before you die" kind of places.
Couple of tips; the ride up is long and windy to the top and the drivers are crazy so if you have a tendency to get car sick, make sure to take your Dramamine before you head up there. Second tip, stop on the way and get some of the best mozzarella you've ever tasted. They make it fresh and it unlike any you've ever had and probably ever will since they don't export this stuff.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Sirenuse is a charming family owned hotel located in the heart of Positano. Opened in 1951 by the Sersale family who converted their summer house into a hotel with 12 rooms. The hotel has grown since then with the acquisitions of two neighboring houses to 59 rooms and suites.
