TravelPod's Snapshot

Travelers can veer off the well-worn tourist path at Marincanto, a luxurious four-star hotel perched high on a clifftop in the small Italian township of Positano, on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Its location ensures guests enjoy stunning views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Li Galli islands from their French balconies or private patios.

Marincanto offers a range of rooms to suit all budgets. The standard rooms are well appointed, with air-conditioning, satellite television sets, and king-sized beds. However, guests get more space to spread out in a suite, which boasts either a double Jacuzzi bath or a Jacuzzi on the patio, sofa beds, along with standard features. No matter what you pick, satisfied customers insist that the Hotel Marincanto offers great value for money.

It seems a shame to leave such well-appointed rooms, but the hotel's luxurious features make this a little easier. Its infinity pool is the ideal place to swim laps or soak up some sun. The hotel's wellness area, with a Turkish bath and gym equipment positioned to overlook the ocean, can inspire you to work off some extra pounds. Should the exercise cause your muscles to ache, a massage can be arranged in the relaxation zone or in the privacy of your room.

Guests get to enjoy private beach access to the Lido l'Ilicanto Beach, which is the ideal spot for soaking up some sun. The hotel is also a comfortable walk from leading local eateries and bars, although the onsite restaurant Al Marincanto can also offer guests an authentic taste of the cuisine that the Amalfi Coast is famous for. Guests rave about the lavish buffet breakfast served on the Lemon Terrace each morning. The restaurant also serves dishes poolside during the day, and a more sophisticated menu by candlelight as the sun sets.

          Booking hotels is always somewhat of a gamble. We booked Marincanto late and were frankly grateful to get an accommodation this central and with a view of the vast harbor. We were more than just a little excited to see the view from every vista in the hotel and receive such homey service and enjoy such excellent food.

          This is the best value in Positano. We have stayed many times and the Hotel now has a beautiful pool. The rooms are great, the staff can't be beat, the views are the best. That breakfast in the morning is to die for. We prefer the location because of the great views. I think it has become so popular it gets harder to get a reservation. Look forward to our next visit Spring 2012. Try Bruno's for a great dinner and view. Also, take a bus of cab to Ravello and have lunch at Gumpa's.

          We decided on a relaxing morning in Positano, and an adventurous afternoon by scooter driving along the precipitous coastline to Amalfi.
          We enjoyed a stroll down to the town, and took a pathway to the next beach along the coast. We passed one of the many local coastal forts that served as lookouts for marauding pirates from the Barbary Coast. …

          In the afternoon I rented a 12ft Zodiac with a 40hp motor and motored along the coast to see the amazingly rugged coastline and all the sea caves, grottoes, inlets and also the houses and hotels perched precariously on the steep cliffs
          It was a real highlight of the trip for me. In the 2 hours I was able to sail past Praiano, Furore Gorge, all …

          We woke early as we wanted to spend as much time in Positano as possible. Positano is only 15km from Sorrento, but it took around 45 minutes due to the winding road, and the 'peak hour' traffic. The road along the Amalfi coast was nowhere near as hair-raising as we had been lead to believe, and it was quite a relaxing drive.

          ... Once reaching the top here, we followed the poorly written instructions to the top of the mountain. It was a steady ascent to the top, covering rocky and tricky terrain. That's legitness. I really, really enjoyed this part of the hike. Miley Cyrus is so right. It's all about the climb. It ain't about how fast you get there, it ain't about what's waiting on the other side (siiideee), it's the climb. It is called the Path of the Gods. The ...

          ... freezing cold but it was really clear and beautiful. There was no yellow sand like at home there was just black sand and black rocks, which was really good for rock dodge ball and skimming lots of rocks.

          Near the beach there was this awesome rock climbing area and we found lots of caves.

          Mum made us really jealous about the the adults spa because we really wated to go in the spa. At the pool the water was clear and ...
