“Absolutely Unforgettable”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We stayed here for four nights and we absolutely loved it despite the price. First of all, the location is unbeatable - it sits on the hill overlooking the beautiful coastline and the colourful houses which is just simply picture perfect. Also, it is situated in the middle of the main street so a very convenient location for strolling in town or on beach. Secondly, the hotel was elegantly decorated and it is pleasing to look at. In the halls and rooms there are nice antique furnitures. Thirdly, the hotel offers free activities throughout the days so guests can simply relax and enjoy and not to worry about planning. We participated in the wine tasting which we highly recommend. Last but not least, the service from the staff from reception to restaurant was so personal and exceptional. The staff were obviously very well trained and experienced and very customer oriented (which in today's world one cannot take for granted anymore even in the service or hospitality industry unfortunately). The staff at reception takes pains to explain directions and logistics. The staff at the restaurant (either at breakfast, or lunch by the pool, or formal dinner) just could not be more helpful - whether to bring one more of our favourite coffee, explain the variety of the buffet breakfast (their pastry was to die for), or to explain which wine to order to suit our meal - they simply make you feel as if you are with an old friend. They just have that wonderful Italian touch - family which pretty much sums up the service of this hotel - they make you feel welcome as if you are being back with family.

Room Tip: You should definitely choose a room facing the see. I think all junior suites are facing this direc...

This place is so expensive it makes your eyes water but it is truly worth it.

The location is excellent with the hotel being located a couple of minutes walk up the hill from the town centre. The hotel itself is immaculate, our room was spacious and clean with a small balcony containing a table and chairs. We opted for a partial sea view room which is located on the level slightly above the pool, the view is nice obscured slightly by lemon trees which surround the pool. The view was as we expected and was described on their website and we were happy with this.

Upon arrival we received a bottle of prosecco and some fruit. There is also a schedule of activities (most complimentary) which you can book on to. We would recommend the walk climbing the steps up to Nocelle as well as the boat ride. We did the morning boat ride day and this was great, it was just us and two other guests. You drive along the coast for an hour before stopping for a swim followed by a drink, you then continue down to Amalfi (not getting off) then back to Positano with another swim on the way. The trip was about 2.5 hours and was excellent.

The breakfast is one of the best I have ever had, there are a number of options you can help yourself to - cereal, bread, fruit, cold drinks, and sweets with the ability to order eggs and hot food.

The service is exceptional in all aspects of the hotel, upon arrival we received a full explanation of the hotel and recommendations of the surrounding area. Whilst there were a few posh people hanging about for the post part it was normal people just like us and we loved it.

Room Tip: The partial sea view was great, with our view being across the pool obscured only by a few lemon tre...

Le Sirenuse is simply an amazing hotel. The staff was so nice and friendly, especially Luigi, Vitto, Pepe, Salvatore, and Marco. The owner of the hotel was so gracious and would say hi to the guest throughout the day. The staff is so kind and helpful overall, and truly made our stay perfect. The view is exquisite from every restaurant and especially from the pool. The housekeeper, Giovanna, was so cheerful and did her job so well every night. The resturants were great and had a great atmosphere. Thank you so much everyone at the Sirenuse for a perfect stay.

Our three nights and four days at Le Sirenuse were amazing, an experience I'll never forget. The staff deserves special considerations, everyone is very attentive and made us feel special during our stay. The location is unbeatable, right in the middle of the main street, with spectacular views of the ocean and the coastline. Take advantage of the activities offered by the hotel, they're well organized and none of them seem like tourist traps. We took the boat twice, once to go to Nerano for lunch and again on the next day on a swimming tour, which was a lot of fun. Breakfast is phenomenal, they even have a separate eggs menu, with no additional charge. The hotel restaurant, La Sponda, deserves a special review, another great experience in Positano. Our stay there was seamless, can't wait to go back!

This little bit of heaven is perfection. Very expensive but wonderfully wonderful!! Our room was exquisite and the service just beyond what we have experienced, and we have stayed in some great resorts. We enjoyed a beautiful view of the coast with the dome perfectly placed for classic photos. We explored the area and enjoyed a delicious breakfast on our veranda. Restaurant was a dream, with violins and everything you would imagine a world class establishment to be. My now husband popped the question here and it was impossible to say no in a setting like this...

Room Tip: no bad rooms here.

Worth every penny. My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon and it was our favorite spot. The location is great, the service is excellent, and the views are unbeatable. They have activities included in the (admittedly very high) room rates that we took advantage of: Italian wine tasting, daily two hour boat rides to Amalfi, a hike to Nocelle. The rooms were a great size - we had a private balcony with ours - and the linen sheets were an interesting, special touch.

All around great stay, very romantic, and one of our favorites.

Room Tip: Need an ocean view it's amazing
