Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Buca di Bacco Positano
Great Hotel Near the Beach
The hotel was wonderful. First, the room was exceptionally large with a big terrace facing the sea. It was not fancy, but it was pretty. Second, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Third, the location near the beach was perfect for going down to get on ferries, rent boats, check on schedules, etc. We went on our honeymoon mid-May, stayed three nights there, and we would highly recommend it. The only caution I would add is travel light or be prepared to arrange for a porter as the road does not reach the hotel. We were prepared for this with small bags so we didn't have a problem. It was lovely.
Friendly and nice but noisy
Overall, we liked the hotel. It has a very friendly and attentive staff, serves a very fresh buffet and has pretty views. However, we had trouble with noise from our room (#12.) The room itself was great. It was spacious and had a terrace and two step-out balconies, but the restaurants below us were noisy until 5:30 am the Saturday night we were there! These people were loud! ! It was much quieter on Sunday. I would choose a quieter hotel next time, although we loved the staff! This beautiful location (Positano) deserves some solitude.
Great, Great, Great
We stayed here for 4 nights - this place is magical. The town is simply wonderful - like you walked into old world Italy. The food is great and the service at this hotel was outstanding! We rented a car with a driver ($300 for the entire day) he took us to the ruins and the most beautiful place I have ever been - Ravello! He was arranged through the hotel and we loved him - Antonello - he told us about every thing and took us to the best place for lunch - where the locals go. The room had an ocean view (I believe they all do) and the view from our balcony was priceless. This hotel is clean as a whistle and friendly, friendly, friendly! The manager (when we went) looked EXACTLY like Jackie Mason!
When I asked him if anyone else ever told him he said yes & spun around just like Jackie - it was a hoot! I had the best sandals I have ever owned handmade for me right on the street - we are going back next year for my - gulp - 40th! You can't do better than the Buca di Bacco!!!!!
Paradise in Italy
My wife and I spent 5 days in Positano in October, 2003 at the Buca di Bacco Hotel. Rooms offered "magical" views and were beautifully decorated. We had exceptional service and food throughout our stay and highly recommend this hotel to others for its service and ideal location. We plan to return to Buca di Bacco....soon!
The hotel is positioned in an excellent location, the management and staff were extremely polite and helpful. The room occupied was of a generous size and the verandah overlooking the ocean was a bonus. On the whole we were pleased with the accommodation, however the bathroom was not up to standard and needed cleaning and upgrading.
I stayed at Buca di Bacco in July on my honeymoon. Italy was extremely hot but this beautiful hotel in a perfect area made my stay incredible.
They took great care of my wife and I, making special dinner reservations at the most romantic restaurant in Positano, at the moste romantic table overlooking the whole town, on are last night. The rooms were very clean, the air conditioning worked incredibly well compared to any other hotel I stayed in Italy. It was a wonderful place to end are honeymoon. They even arranged for a car to bring us to Naples early in the morning, making sure to provide us with breakfast before we left. Great Place!!!!
My wife & I stayed 4 nights at the hotel during the second week of September, 2003 and we loved every minute ! The hotel, the staff and the located were prefect. We stayed in room # 34 - it was big with a beautiful terrace overlooking the water. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.
A must on any Italy trip
My husband and I spent the last part of our trip in Positano and it could not have been more perfect. Our hotel, Buca Di Bacco, arranged for a car service from the Naples train station (200 Euros round trip) that was worth every penny. Be warned though, the road to Positano, especially if you stay near the bottom, is VERY curvy. Take motion sickness pills! Despite the road, the village is quaint, charming, picturesqe, relaxing and beautiful. We were there the first week of September and the weather was perfect and most of the Italian natives on holiday had cleared out. Al Palazzo, Le Terrazze, and Dona Rossa were all fabulous restaurants. Dona Rossa has great food but you will need a taxi to get there as it is at the top of the mountain. There is also no view from the restaurant but the food is worth it. Le Terrezze is very romantic and right on the beach above Music on the Rocks.
Great Hotel. We stayed there for two nights during our honeymoon. The weather was very hot in Italy in July but our room had excellent air conditioning. We stayed in one of the nicest rooms in the hotel and it was worth the price. Perfect view of the main part of Positano and the grand spiaggia. Also, very close to the port where the boats arrive but far enough away to not be bothered by their noise.
Loved Buca di Bacco
My husband and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at Buca di Bacco and I can't recommend it enough. The location was perfect and you couldn't find a lovelier room and terrace than Rm #10. We stayed at Le Sirenuse the 2nd week and although it too was lovely, it's Buca di Bacco I'm recommending to my friends.

... I could keep looking ahead at the road. It was dark when we all got off the bus in town, all the shops were still open (I don't think I will understand the opening hours of Italian shops) so I went into a cheap phone shop and got a headphone splitter for my phone so both Kate and I could listen to the same music - we had deleted Kate's music collection on her phone to free up space for photos and videos. The lady at the B&B had recommended another ...

To keep this suitable for all, we will just say that the preparation was more than we've ever imagined doing, BUT we dove right in and both Stella and Paolo were very impressed with our tenacity. Personally I think it's a test for their guests to determine their cooking chops, so we ...
... The diets will have to wait until we return home, as the food here is just too good!
Having seen Amalfi town and Sorrento, we think we made the best choice to spend most of our
time on the Amalfi Coast here. The best times are early in the morning and early evening, when the throngs of day trippers have left and there are more locals around. It really is quite a charming place.
Ciao for now.
... the pearl of the Amalfi coast. According to the old legends, they were inhabited by the sirens who seduced sailors with their melodious voice; they lost control of their ships that inevitably crashed on the rocks of the islands. In the Odyssey, Odysseus blocked his men's ears with beeswax, and made them tie him to the foot of the mast so he could not be drawn away by the lure of the Sirens' song. The Gallo Lungo Island was later a prison. We stopped on our ...

With our Eurail pass, we automatically have first class seating, which is pretty cushy: A welcome drink and snack, large reclining seats, wifi, etc. It makes the travel time enjoyable and quick. Upon arriving in Naples three hours later, we prepared ourselves for a very different experience. Naples is one of the grittiest cities in Italy, notorious for pickpockets (it doesn't help that a third of the population ...
