The Poseidon Hotel, Positano.

Posted 08-Jul-2017
Pros: Friendly, courteous staff, good location with wonderful views.
Cons: Not alot!
Location: A short way from the harbour towards the top of the hill. Reached by the 300 or so steps or a slightly longer but gentler walk around the outside.
Visited the Poseidon for a special anniversary and that is just what we experienced. Gorgeous views, close to the town and harbour with many lovely restaurants and nice shops. Take the 25 minute boat to Amalfi and then the bus to Ravello for another wonderful experience.

Location: Great location to shopping, dining and other Amalfi Coast towns.
Spent three nights in this wonderfully located hotel.

Views to die for!

Posted 04-Jun-2017
The best part about this hotel is the views. You can see all of Positano from your room and from the dining room and swimming pool areas. It takes your breath away!. The staff are helpful and friendly. The breakfast is good. The swimming pool area with a bar is a nice hang out place. If we go back to Positano we will stay here.

Perfection in Positano

Posted 28-May-2017
The great thing about the Poseidon as opposed to other 4 and 5 star hotels is that it is fabulously Italian, family run and still has a soul. It is not a homogenised hotel full of fake people, cool staff and ridiculous prices but characterful whilst remaining very professional. We LOVED it and we will be back. X Thank you for the loan of the classic VW Beetle as well - what a treat! :-) xx

The Best Hotel Experience We've Had

Posted 13-May-2017
Pros: Rooms, staff, location, EVERYTHING.
Cons: I didn't ever have to leave.
Location: Rent a boat and go to Capri. Eat at Ristorante Da Vincenzo. Drink Spritz's.
I don't know where to start on this review knowing that I will not do the Hotel Poseidon justice via words.. I could talk about the incredible location, immaculate rooms, hotel staff, food, drinks, snacks that accompany the drinks, breakfast that is fit for a king, pool/view, evening music in the lounge/pool area, but it would in no one capture the experience you get first hand. My girlfriend and I, best friend and his wife and I stayed here for 3 surreal nights. Days were spent like this: waking up and opening the balcony doors to watch the sun rising over the range of positano while still laying in bed, heading up (usually in the hotel provided robe) to a breakfast you never wanted to end while continuing to enjoy the beauty of the rising sun over the mountain range and sea, getting dressed, walking to the beach to hop on a boat and head to capri, coming back to hotel for spritz's at the pool and the sounds of the italian Sting playing in the lounge. After watching all of Positano light up as the sunset, we'd head to an incredible dinner within walking distance of the hotel, discuss once again how it was probably the best meal we've ever had, go back to the poolside bar for one last cocktail or three, then to bed. Repeat. The Hotel Poseidon is an experience you will never forget and I cannot thank the hotel and staff enough. This is the only place you need to consider staying in Positano.

Great location

Posted 07-May-2017
Clean but old. Bed is hard and very uncomfortable. They have no money at front desk to make change for tip.

Dear Travel Monkey, We are sorry to hear that you found the mattress uncomfortable, however, please let me kindly inform you that we could have changed it to a softer one, if we had known! There is also a notice in the room! Regarding the money at front desk, again, we are sorry for that, but we did not have so many coins, however we offered to change it for you at a nearby shop. We hope to have the chance to welcome you as our guest at the Poseidon again. Yours sincerely,

Family holiday

Posted 23-Apr-2017
Great location and the view from our room was awesome. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast buffet caters for all tastes, they made us omelette and fried eggs every day. Fantastic staff who genuinely want you to have a wonderful time in their magnificent Positano.
