Travel Blogs from Positano
We started the day with a late (10am) breakfast on the patio overlooking the town. A delicious buffet included everything you can imagine with impeccable service, and much needed capaccino's. The breakfast was included with our stay in the hotel.
After breakfast we began the long walk down to the water, strolling through the shops on the …

Our flight from Ottawa to Frankfurt was relatively uneventful. No one got much sleep. Liz and Rob didn't get to sit together as no one would move from their window seat for them. We hit a bit of turbulance around Labrador, which was fine except the stewardess standing beside us freaked and said it was going to get horrible and she was leaving to …
Capri seems a bit over rated. It is entirely a tourist trap. You pay 30 euro round trip to get there, THEN you are supposed to pay at least another 20/person to go see any of the sights. Also, it seems that the only good sights to see (that we could find) involve going out on a boat (another 20 euro) and looking at them. And the people are rude, …
Today was our day of relaxation. We didn't get up until 9:30 this time, read on the porch for a bit, then went up to sit on the roof and have breakfast and espresso. There was fresh orange juice which might just be the best I've ever had, and I must say that Italian breakfast buffets are much more delicious than American ones. Also, prosciutto is …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Poseidon Positano
Nice Hotel, Great Service
The hotel itself is not a fancy or beautiful resort (but then again I didn't see any of those in central Positano). What it lacks in appearance is certainly compensated for by their first class service.
The staff in the restaurant, bar & pool make you feel as if you have been a long term guest by your second day as they know your name, what you like to drink and how you like your food prepared. The views are fantastic from the rooms as well as from the common areas. The walk down to the beach is another story but as long as you don't do it too often it's not that bad. This hotel is within easy walking distance. I would certainly recommend the Poseidon based upon the service alone.
Problems with the food
While the view was as recommended, my wife found a dead cockroach in the food of our room service.
We stayed at the Poseidon for 5 glorious nights in August. The place is fantastic, from the beautifully furnished lounge areas, to the romantic dinners on the deck, to the days spent lounging around pool with Johnny the bartender and poolman attending to our needs. This is a real family run affair, and thank goodness! This does not detract in any way from the sophistication of the place, it really was top-class and luxury.
Loved the Poseidon
I loved the Hotel Poseidon and spent 4 relaxing days there. The staff were very accomodating and helpful.
I plan to return to Positano and hope to stay again at the hotel poseidon.
I LOVED POSITANO AND LOVE THE HOTEL POSEIDON!
This hotel, its staff, the location, the rooms, and all the other facilities are wonderful. We stayed there in November of 2002 and plan to stay there again in September of 2003. Clean, well maintained, beautiful decor, great food and exceptional hospitality make this a gem of a destination. Positano itself is equally beautiful, the town, the sea, and the people.
Stayed like family
I stayed at the Poseidon in May 2003 and had a fantastic time . The hotel is beautiful , its position very convenient and the rooms have a great view over the sea . The food is the best I had in my trip and the hotel staff is friendly and helpful . I would recommend this hotel to everyone who doesn't want to overpay the expensive Positano .
This was our second time staying at this hotel. We had such a wonderful time the first time that we returned six years later. If possible, ask for a room on the upper floors - the terraces are big with breathtaking views of the ocean and of the village of Positano below. The restaurant is excellent, with a wonderful staff. The pool is a little small, but really just fine. The gardens are very peaceful and beautiful all with a view of the village below. It just takes a few minutes to walk down to the village. Positano is such a perfect "home base" for the Amalfi coast. Ferrys take you to any village or island on the coast.
Wonderful view and service
We had a wonderful stay in June 2003. The hotel has a wonderful view, overlooking the small town. The restaurant is very good and the breakfast way over average. The staff is very helpful in all ways (from poolmanager to waitress). Our standard room was large and had a perfect terrace.
Our home in Posi
The Poseidon came highly recommended and exceeded all our expectations. Because of late booking we started out in their wonderful suite at the top of the hotel with uniterupted views of to town, the bay and the coast to Alamalfi, this was to be for two nights but we loved it so much we extended it to a week, then moved to a 'guestroom' which was very comfortable, also had good views and a great terrace. The service is discreet but perfect and the overall quality 1st class. The restaurant has some of the best food in the town and all of the 'family' that run this great hotel go out of their way to help. We had drinks at the San Pietro, dinner at Sirenuse (both mega) but Poseidon gets our vote for the place to stay.
This place was GREAT. The rooms were comfortable with large patios that faced the opposite mountainside, with the sea to the right. We went during Christmas and they had the place decorated beautifully. The lobby / public space was HUGE, with lots of private couches and corners. The breakfasts were large and tasty too. Also, as far as location, it was perfect because we were high enough on the mountainside to get a great view, and low enough to get to the ocean in 15 minutes.
