My husband and I just returned from Positano and Capri and we have nothing but great things to say about this hotel and its wonderful staff. The hotel is situated in a perfect location - great views and a short 10 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and great shops. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and they very kindly presented us with a bottle of Prosecco which we enjoyed on our lovely terrace overlooking the sea. The breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere on the terrace and by the pool was just beautiful. Samer, the guest relations manager was wonderful and even lent us his Frommer's guide for the duration of our stay. He was always around chatting with guests and providing great advice. We also found it helpful that the hotel kept our larger luggage and our rental car in their garage while we visited Capri for 2 days. Once again a wonderful destination with lots of character (loved the old lift!) and a very attentive staff. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentically Italian and charming hotel! Thank you to all of your staff for making our stay so magical!

I am so glad that you chose Hotel Poseidon as one of your ventures to celebrate your 25th wedding anniversary and the bottle of prosecco was the least we could do to celebrate this special occasion with you.
Thanks for your warm review and am happy that your experience with us was up to your expectations. I personally can't but express gratitude for your appreciation of Hotel Poseidon: a family run hotel with a charming and authentic old school Italian feeling to it.

WOW! This was the most memorable vacation. After spending 5 days in Rome, on the go from morning till night, we headed for the Amalfi coast with our son and daughter-in-law. We had been to Rome previously but Positano was to be a new adventure. When we arrived, the view totally blew us away--we were unprepared for the sheer beauty, unlike anything we had ever experienced. Our plan had been to not only enjoy Positano, but to further take day trips beyond. However, when we arrived at Hotel Poseidon our ENTIRE itinerary went out the window. It was so relaxing, Samer, the guest relations manager and the rest of the staff were so friendly, efficient and accommodating that we were completely lulled into another world. Our rooms were in the upper part of the hotel, with a lovely terrace and amazing view of Positano and the Mediterranean. Upon arrival in the afternoon the 4 of us headed for the main terrace which includes, pool area, many sitting areas and the restaurant. After finding comfy seating under the wisteria covered pergola we were attended to by friendly staff with drinks and appetizers. It was then that we first met Samer, who offered suggestions for our itinerary and his help whenever we might need it during our stay. From the wonderful morning buffets, which included everything imaginable AND fresh squeezed orange juice upon request, together with evening meals on the terrace with a full moon and balmy breezes, we will forever bask in the memories. We are still remembering the veal piccata and that amazing pastry cream, black cherry dessert. Our last night was made complete by Samer joining us for dinner, conversation and introducing us to the most fantastic lemon pasta we've ever tasted. We are forever spoiled by this visit to Hotel Poseidon. We came as guests and left as friends. Gary & Carma

Room Tip: Hotel location ensures that most rooms would have a good view. Higher floors simply enhance that...
