      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.

      The food in the restaurant was the best I've ever had in Italy, and reasonably priced for Positano. The restaurant staff are top-notch. As far as location goes, it is quite easy to walk down the path to the main beach area, and is sufficiently removed from the hub to make it more peaceful. Our only criticism is the room did not appear to have a room-service menu and the bar-fridge was pretty plain (even by euro standards). I guess that's a small complaint considering the rest. As a comparison, we dined at Le Sirenuese one evening and whilst it was silver service and lovely, I felt so much more relaxed and welcomed back at the Poseidon. It's like home.

      We used Renato's Limousine Service to get to and from the Rome airport.

      Our driver, Roberto, was fantastic and we immediately warmed to him

      One issue we have with Positano itself is the lack of water recreational activities available. We tried to hire a decent boat for a few hours and were told it would cost $1800usd for the day for a speed boat!!! They do have crappy little runabouts, but they have no shade-cover and don't look at all appealing. I think the tourist industry there really needs to pick up its act and provide some reasonably priced charter boating trips. They just don't compare to other seaside locations in terms of value.

      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.


      Excellant everything


      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 .

      Second Stay


      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.

      Hotel Poseidon


      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.

      ... and the excitement we already had doubled instantly. We couldn't help but just watch as the sun set over the ocean on one side and mountains coasted by on the other. The train itself was very comfy and clean so we quite enjoyed the journey. As we neared Naples we were surprised to see our first skyscrapers since London and thought maybe the city won’t be as bad as they had said.
