Honeymoon at Poseidon

Posted 15-Oct-2014
This family run hotel gives you the beauty of positano at a fair rate without skimping on the luxury of the experience. It is a beautiful hotel with an amazing roof top restaurant and pool. I can't rave more about the staff who were kind friendly and accommodating. We even met one of the owners who made our honeymoon even more special by treating us to good company and dinner. He sets the tone for the rest of the staff. Overall an outstanding experience. I highly recommend the hotel especially if you want a personal human touch.

Adorable hotel with great views

Posted 07-Oct-2014
This hotel was amazing. I had a large terrace connected to my room, providing me with a gorgeous ocean and hillside view every morning. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious! The staff were very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and scheduling taxi rides. The hotel itself is in a very central location, only a short walk to the beach and close to the shops. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Fantastic hotel with caring and professional staff

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Pros: The staff were always helpful. You could tell they took pride in their work and wanted guests to truly feel welcome to the hotel and the town.
Cons: Little, if anything, could be improved. Minor suggestion: hotel staff could memorize room numbers. Asking for the number seemed impersonal at times.
Location: Located on Via Pasitea, there is a pharmacy about 300 m away, and about 100 m away there is a narrow set of stairs and alleys that leads to the beach.
Hotel Poseidon is a truly wonderful place to stay in Positano. Whether watching the sunrise at breakfast or having a drink on the terrace after dinner, the hotel staff are conscientious without being over-bearing and the views are stunning. My wife and I stayed here last week for our Honeymoon. We stayed in a Superior Room, which included a private balcony with a view overlooking Positano and the sea. The room itself was clean, well-appointed with antique furniture, and small but not cramped, which was fine because when at the hotel, we were often on our balcony, in the hotel's lounge or on the terrace. The bed was comfortable. The housekeeping staff kept the room immaculate. With the patio doors closed, the room was quiet. We found the hotel's location to be perfect for our needs. We were far enough away to enjoy the sounds of the village from our balcony without any one sound disrupting our stay, but able get to the beach in less than 10 minutes down the steep stairs and alleys near the hotel, if needed. Lastly, and most importantly, the staff at Hotel Poseidon were excellent. We had to check out early in the morning. Without any hesitation, one of the head servers offered to let us into the restaurant at 6:30 am for a simple meal and coffee while she and her staff prepared for the 7:30 am breakfast service. This was just one of many small kindnesses freely provided by the hotel staff during our stay, the sum total of which made our time at Hotel Poseidon unforgettable.

Beautiful and Comfortable

Posted 02-Sep-2014
We had a corner suite with a large balcony. The scenary was beautiful, the hotel is clean and the staff are very nice and helpful. Two things you should know: it's quite a walk to the beach and center of town (especially on the way back up the stairs when you're tired and heavy!). Two: if the people next door are smokers and they sit in their balcony and smoke, expect your own balcony to be useless as the smoke will come to your side and into your rooms. Other than that, we loved it, for a small village of Positano the hotel Posidon exceeded our expectations.

Traditional hotel with amazing view of Positano

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: The view is amazing and the location convenient. It is clean and well run.
Cons: The bathrooms are rather dated and would most benefit from refurbishment.
Location: Fantastic location overlooking Positano.
I stayed in August and really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and the hotel is well run. Our room was large with a large terrace overlooking the bay. The pool area and restaurant have fabulous views of Positano.

Visit to the Amalfi Coast

Posted 25-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff alone made the experience of staying in Positano memorable, from breakfast to house keeping ever one went out of their way to be friendly
Cons: The bath tub shower was difficult to shower in with an extra thin bath which was hard to get in and out of
Location: Near the hotel were was great restaurants and a small supermarket. There were stairs not far from the hotel that lead down to the beach front quickly.
From the time I arrived to the time I left all the staff that I met went out of their way to make me feel welcome, it was a fantastic experience and one that you rarely happens. Marcco in particular from the front office staff that made my stay even better, there was not one question that he could not answer or give me some information on and unlike a lot of hotels all the staff seemed happy and willing to go out of their way to help. Thank you. The hotel location was perfect and so close to all the action, the my room was great with a garden view and an area I could sit outside. The Roof top bar was the perfect place to end the day with a glass of wine overlooking the Positano. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Positano, even if you have to pay a little extra it will be worth it.
