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.

... hill, showered and changed and took the stairs, about 400, down to Fornillo beach because tonight is the annual Fish Festival for Positano. Fisherman fish for two days for this and all the restaurants on that beach close. The only thing sold tonight is about five different fish/calamari/mussels and clam items and wine. There were many areas where locals were cooking all of the fish dishes fresh and the queues were so long. They should have made heaps of money. There was a band, a ...

Tragically, Jan got back into shopping mode - so we will now need 2 RAF Hercules to get "our" belongings back home.
Amazingly, when it came to getting a bite for lunch.... guess where Jan suggested we go..... yes (you got it!), right back up that bloody hill where we got the haircut earlier in the day......we must have walked a good 5 kms today in sweltering heat..... why (said Bob to Jan), didn't we either (a) ...
... I had only bought one ticket. It only cost €3 so I guess he couldn’t be bothered. I’m still not sure if it was my error or if I missed printing another document.
It was a 40-minute ride to Salerno and the mountains began getting larger.
Upon arriving in Salerno we found our way from the train station to the pier where we bought tickets for the ferry to Positano.
The ferry trip took 75 minutes including a stop at Amalfi and we had lovely views ...
... so I put my foot down and said we could wait - not paying $6.50 NZD for a little coffee. We did go off the tourist beaten lanes and find a deli for lunch and got a beer for 1.20 euro ..... far better spend of money I think. We also got a lovely selection of foods like fried anchovies, lasagne, rice salad with meats and vege, roast potatos with oregano, grilled seasoned courgettes and eggplants and squid salad for $13 euro total. It was heaps and we ...
... was now getting bigger and bigger as we rapidly approached it. Beautiful turquoise colored waters and white painted houses built on high sea cliffs were picturesque scenes being displayed in front of me. I was getting 'un avant-goût’, a taste as to what was soon to be discovered on this island that some called “the island of dreams”! No need to ask me why!
