“The most amazing hotel”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

My husband and I spent 3 nights here for our one year anniversary! It was the most unbelievable hotel. The hotel has a private yacht that goes out every day from 11:30-1:30 that is complimentary for guests and takes you to a different spot and you can get off the boat and swim. The rock that the sunbeds is on is pure heaven! You can lay in the ocean all day and look at the spectacular views of Positano! This hotel made our experience! By Far the most amazing place ever! Can't wait to go back

We debated between staying at the San Pietro or the Sireneuse, and hands down, San Pietro was the right choice. The views are some of the best we've ever seen (I believe all rooms have a view), and it has a beautiful private beach, accessible by simply taking an elevator. Yes, the Sireneuse is in town, but the SP's shuttle (5 min. drive) worked seamlessly - always there when we went into town, and a very brief wait for the return, 24 hours a day. The trade-off between a great Mediterranean beach at your hotel and taking a short shuttle to town vs. walking to a less appealing public beach surrounded by boats in the harbor is a no brainer. Thank you ISP for a wonderful time!

Our fourth stay. Elegant. Superior service. Very attentive management.
I do not know how they do it but they manage to have quality guests. Differently from most other places in the Amalfi Coast, Capri and other summer destinations, you are not oppressed by screaming kids or loud-speaking tourists. Great.
The rooms on the Positano side are the mot beautiful.
Their private motorboat is very expensive but worth the money for a private trip to Capri or Amalfi.

We just returned from a 6 night stay at il San pietro and I must say this is a world class hotel. The property is simply magnificent with some of the best views I've ever seen in my extensive travels around the world. The rooms are extremely well maintained and the air conditioning works well. The hotel grounds are simply breathtaking with literally thousands of flowers all over. The hotel staff is extremely well trained and provides the level of service that one would expect from a hotel of this caliber. Yes it is expensive but if you can afford it this is the place to stay. Keep in mind the central part of positano is about 5 minutes away by the hotel shuttle. This hotel is very much deserving of 5 stars. As a side note the restaurant is tremendous

We are back for our 2 nd time, and already planning our return next year. This is a very special place. Nothing else compares, that we have found around the world. Something about this place is unique. It is hard to explain. We are enjoying our 11 days, the overnighters or 2 nighters are missing the feel you get after 4 or five days.

One of the best hotels in the world for sure, for location, service, ambience, and again service

If you are able to stay here you are blessed, it is truly unique.

Room Tip: Just enjoy your time!
