We traveled to Positano for our honeymoon in July and it was the best decision. Le Sirenuse was 5 starts all the way! The people are fantastic, they all greet you with a smile on their face and are very attentive. If you need anything, they are all very helpful.
The Hotel Restaurant was amazing, breakfast and lunch were absolutely worth it. DO NOT EAT DINNER AT THE HOTEL. Overpriced, small portions and a real waste of a night in Positano. Breakfast - you get a large assortment of everything, cereal, breads, cheese/meats, pastries, etc, and can order omelets if you like. Everything was delicious, including the fresh mozzarella in the morning! Lunch portions were huge compared to the dinner. Try the seafood pasta (clams, mussels), one of the best meals I’ve ever had! Back to dinner at the hotel’s restaurant - everyone around us that night complained (we weren’t the only ones) and we left (several hundred euro) absolutely starving.
Our room had a partial view of the ocean and it was perfect. All the rooms are updated and very clean. The shower was amazing, but didn’t have a door so the floor got wet every time we took a shower. I think that might be just a European thing. The terrace was big enough to sit and look out onto the ocean.
It is expensive, but worth every penny! Check out the oyster bar and champagne bar - really wonderful views and great service.
Take advantage of their boat cruises – they offer different things like olive oil tastings, we went on the sunset night cruise before dinner. The hotel has their own wood boat (holds about 10-12 people and they served us wine/prosecco/cheese/meats/nuts, etc. What a perfect night on the water!
The pool was a dream – and one of the main reasons why we chose this hotel. It was big enough to swim and cool off. The chairs/cushions around the pool were large and comfortable. The wait staff at the pool were fantastic! They bring you water, nuts and olives as much as you want. They genuinely love their jobs and are truly attentive.
The exercise room was great and had plenty of updated equipment.
The location is perfect nestled high enough on the coastline. They have a back entrance/exit which cuts through the streets and get you to the beach faster. It’s a great walk – gets your legs burning, but the beach is not too far. We walked it every day - some days we walked down the streets and shopped. The people are All so friendly.
I would also take a cooking class at Max's Restaurant. I learned SO much. Great people, great food, great place to grab dinner! We went there twice and everything was fantastic!
I highly recommend making a reservation at La Tagliata for lunch/dinner. You arrange a pick up and drop off. The restaurant overlooks the coast line up in the mountains. Take a look at their website: www.latagliata.com/. We’ve been there twice already and you will NOT be disappointed. No menus, one set price, home-made wines, pastas, meats, fresh vegetables, everything made on premise. They just bring you plate after plate. You will not be disappointed!
Remember to tip!
