I stayed at the Poseidon for 2 nights in early May 2014, I wish it had been longer.
The position of the hotel, overlooking the main part of town and its sea from allowed us to enjoy a most beautiful stay in this charming and romantic seaside town.
Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, everything worked including air conditioning and the bathroom was a generous size and well equipped.
We dined one night at their restaurant and the food was excellent, in fact it was better than many of the restaurants in town, but it's setting was breathtakingly beautiful. As the sun went down, the shimmering lights of the town and the swaying lamps of fishing boats bobbing in the bay, gave this balconied restaurant a very special, magical feel. Little wonder that the town seems engulfed in honeymooning couples, strolling around in mesmerised euphoria.
I can see that you need to be fit in Positano. Any movement from A to B certainly will involve numerous steps or very very steep gradients with lots of energy expended. This was also true in the hotel , but there is a lift, " The first lift in Positano" as the notice proudly proclaims.
We loved it all - visit and stay at the Poseidon, it is a wonderful experience.
