Marincanto, Positano
We had an AMAZING stay at Marincanto as part of our honeymoon! The location is perfect for stunning views of the cascading pastel buildings on the mountain and the beach. Be prepared to carry your luggage up some stairs and a steep climb or pay 10 euro to have someone deliver your luggage to your hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The decor is bit dated, but that seems to be norm pretty much all in Positano. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. We were welcomed with glasses of prosecco as we waited for our room to be ready, which didn't take long at all. They also assisted with making dinner reservations, travel reservations and destination recommendations. Particularly Antonio, Benji and one more staff member (sorry I can't recall her name now) went beyond our expectations and made our stay so pleasant. Even housekeeping and the servers during breakfast were very friendly and polite. It was a bit windy and chilly for us to use the pool during our stay. The hotel grounds are lush and secluded. Definitely great for relaxing and some down time. There is also a shortcut down some stairs to the beach. (Just a tip, if you're running late for a ferry, use this shortcut!) It's listed as a private beach, but it's not exactly private, as people can easily wander into that area. Positano was our favorite part of the honeymoon and we will always remember our extraordinary experience here. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

Close, but not quite there
The junior suite we received was literally the room shown online as a superior room. When pointing this out, it was vehemently denied by the front desk despite showing them photos from their own website of the discrepancy. Additionally, there were some issues with the water going very hot/cold and intermittently stopping all together. Additionally, the claim of a private beach is not true. There is a staircase leading down to a concrete slab surrounded by another hotel's property between the slab and the beach/water. This hotel has the look and location of a four star hotel, but is not quite there yet. Some positive highlights are the location, views, and the pool boy Gianni, who is the man.

Amazing Positano Hotel!
You can not beat the location of the Marincanto! The staff were all extremely helpful and accommodating during our entire stay. Our room was very spacious, a little loud as we were right above the terrace, but the views were INCREDIBLE. Would definitely return for another stay.

Beautiful hotel in paradise!
Beautiful, elegant, relaxing stay in paradise. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the center/harbor of Positano but worth it! The views from our room were incredible. Breakfast is wonderful and dinner was delicious! The pool was a bit chilly, but again, the view was breathtaking. The staff was wonderful; they recommended Ristorante Casa Mele for dinner one night -- it is just up the road and fabulous!

Most beautiful hotel
Marincanto was the most beautiful hotel with a garden area that served as their restaurant, good breakfast, and a great pool/sun deck. The room looked prettier than the pictures and we had an okay view partially blocked by the roof of another building. I will definitely try to stay here again if I go back to Positano.
