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.

... A relaxing day to end the trip. Ready to come home, but not homesick. At some stage you end your travels, as this then generates the next trip. It is very hard to determine the best parts of the trip. There were way too many things we did that you cannot compare each one. They all have a special place in our memories.
Travelling for 8 weeks with Wendy has been one of the biggest highlights. Spending 24 hours, day after day, could ...

Our first full day is a little overcast- which is fine! We go the beach and relax most of the day and pretty sure we both passed out down there! Our hostel is very cool- the lady that owns it had it handed down to her! She turned the house into a hostel and it has such a great vibe. All dorm rooms with one big terrace veranda area which everyone sits around listening to music/playing cards/chatting ...
... look like caterpillars. They were still noticeable in the dark but on closer inspection with the flashlight, Mel discovered that most of the “seeds” were actually brown worms. Where the heck did they come from? The stairs were covered in them. Mel immediately started running up the stairs; I was not physically able to. But she was soon distracted by a neighbour’s dog, which we stopped to pet.
It was a long day and it wasn’t long before we were in ...
... There is a statue and chapel inside of Giuseppe Moscati (1880-1927), a local doctor who was famous for helping the poor. In 1987, he became the first modern doctor to be canonized. In the short time we are there, we observe several Italians come by, say a short prayer and touch or kiss the statue. We pay our respects in his chapel. The outside of this church is not typical as it was converted from an old fortress like palace of the Sanseverino princes of the 1400s. The dome has ...
