    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Buca di Bacco Positano

    Great Hotel Near the Beach

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Location excellent

    from

    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.

    Awesome place

    from

    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!!!!

    Loved It!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful Hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... white people on the whole beach.....everyone one else, young, old, short, tall, skinny, fat were all brown as berries. We hobbled our way, most ungraciously, across the pebbles and flopped in the water :). The water was quite cool....not what we expected of the Mediterranean Sea. We stayed on the beach for the rest of the day, working on our tan's ... not sure though that we changed even 1 millionth of a shade darker. Quite ...

Anyway - we hadn't found the shop in question, but after refreshment we asked the waiter at the hotel if he knew where the place was...... he looked slightly bemused (and probably thought we were having a laugh at his expense), then said it was right opposite ...

This is a very pretty beach front aka touristy bar/ Ristorante, that was completely covered in Bouganvillea ( not yet flowering). There we stayed for an early dinner after which we climbed back up to our room for the ...

    Woke up to amazing sunshine again and had an amazing breakfast sitting in the rooftop restaurant with 500 other excitable Italians !!

    At 11am (yes a very slow breakfast - but who wouldn't with this view) we had a quick wander down to the harbour and then set off in the car along the sea drive.

    ... winding our way along the coastal road towards Amalfi.

    We are glad to be here mid-week and after the summer holiday crowds were gone. Even though the traffic is relatively light, the drive can still be treacherous at times. We are less frightened of going over a cliff than we were of the crazy drivers, scooters and BUSES that come hurtling around the hairpin turns. (Yikes!) By midday we made our way past the villages of Maoiri, Amalfi ...
