Positano is absolutely amazingly beautiful!! I think I could stay in a box & be happy there lol ..BUT I definitely recommend booking this hotel instead. ;) This hotel is stunningly beautiful, with an absolutely perfect location. You can walk right out the front doors to shopping, dining & the beach. But the big reason why we fell in love... More

Positano is a magical place. What I like about hotel Buca it's the location. Steps away from beach front restaurants, everything is very convenient boat ferry to Capri, Amalfi, Positano one minute walk. Also this hotel has maintained it's Italian flair and charm, staff provides excellent service. Not to many steps here to the beach.

Traveling to Europe without visiting Italy has long since proved to be impossible. Equally inconceivable has been spending time in Italy without stopping in Positano, which must be seen to be believed. Steinbeck may have said it best in three words: "Positano bites deep." It does, and my wife and I have found no antidote. We like to experience Positano... More

Positano was our last stop on our 2 week Italian vacation. It couldn't have ended in a more spectacular way. Positano is a beautiful, colorful and vibrant hillside town. The Hotel Buca do Bacco is situated just above the main beach, tight in the heart of the town. The standard room was clean and very comfortable. The front porch had... More

Room 10 is the epitome of positano view. Service is superb. Best location as well. Near the beach and huge terrace. Absolutely decorated in positano style. Even uses a regular key vs typical key card. Next to the church and where all the action is.

Welcomed at reception by Giussepe and five colleagues. Our luggage was brought up and from the moment the door was opened it was magnificent.

My fiance and I went here in October 2015 and it was just incredible. It was a surprise trip and my (then) boyfriend planned it with our engagement in mind.

Located at the base of Positano just above the beach this hotel stands majestically overlooking the beach and the boats moored here. It is an old hotel that has been restored beautifully, the rooms are quite large and well appointed, we had a balcony overlooking the sea which was excellent.

We arrived after 5 nights in Rome ready for relaxation! It is obvious that the staff at Buca di Bacco know that traveling to Positano is a luxury and they make every effort to give you that experience. It is at the bottom of the mountain.
