Rooms were beautiful with lots of character! Location perfect. we stayed in villa 3 and had the most lovely room with sea view! I felt so relaxed from day one. 100% five star! beware of the 267 steps back up from the beach. Our 7 year old was also happy with the attention from the friendly staff and pool.

If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi coast, check out the Hotel Marincanto. It was suggested to us by our travel agent and it was perfection. The rooms were immaculate with sheet changes daily and fresh towels twice a day! The rooms were not super upscale, but they had air-conditioning and the BEST views of the Mediterranean! Really...

Beautiful little hotel with some great staff. The rate at 360 Eur is not cheap but it is Positano and on the cheaper side for this location. The pool was very nice, the room 224 has a great balcony with stunning view of the town. We loved our room and having the possibility of a breakfast on the terrace at...

We were excited to arrive in Positano as we had heard so many good things about the town. Having done our research we knew we had to book ahead of time because all the hotels sell out over summer, so 9-10 months ahead of our visit we booked a Junior Suite at the Hotel Marincanto for the 3 nights. To...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel after a 6 week European trip, we just loved it. Gianni the pool guy was just amazing, he ran everywhere, sorted out lunches, carried heavy umbrellas with cement bases up stairs, made sure we always had towels and drinks....awesome service. The views are breath-taking. Breakfasts pure quality and staff work very hard to...

This was tenth time to stay in Positano, and third visit to Marincanto, and I can honestly say we would not stay at any other hotel there from now on. From the moment you check in there is effortless hospitality and cordiality. All the staff are amazingly friendly, enza and Antonella at reception could not be more helpful, the lovely...

You can't really go wrong in Positano, but the Marincanto really made us feel special. Rooms were nice, spacious, VERY clean, and GREAT views. The pool was a huge plus and the restaurant was good. Short walk to the beach (shorter if you can take the stairs). Would love to go back and highly recommend.

Great hotel with magnificant views from all areas of the hotel. We had a standard room booked for first 6 nights and the plan was to upgrade to a superior for final 4 nights, however we stayed in the standard for all 10 nights to save the hassle of packing/unpacking. The standard was a side sea view and from the...

I can't say enough about Hotel Marincanto. My wife and I stayed there during our honeymoon and loved it! When we arrived, our luggage was taken down (thanks, Carmen) and we were greeted by Enza at the desk. The check-in was very informal and down-to-earth; she said for us to go relax in our room and we could talk to...
