“Wonderful surprise in Positano!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

We booked our trip to the Amalfi coast on summer and most of the hotels were fully booked when we were making our reservations.

After searching and searching again, appeared to me Casa Buonocore as an option (in guesthouses and B&Bs) but it still didn't have much reviews or comments about it. My husband and I decided to take a risk, since all the few reviews were great and the website was well designed and had beautiful pictures of the decoration.

Arriving at Casa Buonocore was such an amazing surprise, its a small estabilishment, taken care by a family, with lots of beautiful minimum details all around, excellent service, happy, helpful and loving staff!

The decoration is beautiful, the breakfast is from other planet and you feel cozy and well treated all the time! The location is great and you can find some of the items of the decoration in their store on the street level.

We were really amazed with everyting!!!
Hope we'll be back soon!

At the end of your assent, a haven of tranquility awaits with the warmest welcome. The interior is beautiful and well thought out. 3 nights of luxury awaited.
These people know how to play host and their taste translates to a feeling of luxury home, as opposed hotel gloss. The breakfast table is amazing, - not only is it presented beautifully (whether you roll out at 8 or 10) the quality is amazing.! - Nothing is too much trouble. As a added bonus, Pietro, the breakfast Supremo, knows just about everything there is to know about what to do and where to go.
We stayed in the top room with the roof terrace (referred to by other reviewers) which was breathtaking, - it was simply beautiful.
Some 'boutique' B&B hotels are completely barking mad - the cost here is relatively high for a B&B but completely in check with the offering and location and we left feeling that the value for money proposition was fantastic.
Would I return ? - Absolutely positively YES .!

Room Tip: Top room with the terrace, - a breathtaking view.!

We spent six glorious nights in stunning surroundings of beautiful Positano and the time spent at Casa Buonocore made our visit a special memory. Amazing breakfasts on the terrace with wonderful friendly staff. Beautifully decorated elegant rooms which would entice one to return to enjoy the peace tranquillity and beauty of both Casa Buonocore and Positano. Absolutely enchanting guest house. Did not want to leave.

We recently spent 5 nights at Casa Buonocore, we loved all the thoughtful details and decorations, the care and service were five stars and the room was very beautifully decorated, quiet and peaceful. Sandra and staff were amazing, each morning there was a gorgeous breakfast on the terrace. I would return to this piece of paradice in the future! Thank you for making our stay in Positano fabulous!

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Decoration was impressive with touchings of the traditional Positano. Our room was quite small but it has a private terrace surrounded with the orange trees and beautiful flowers. We were very lucky. The suggested restaurants by the hotel staff for dinner were highly satisdactory. It's a small hotel but it is such warm that you feel that you're at home. It is located in the centre and it is quite easy to reach to the beach and shops when you compare with the other hotels.

We absolutely loved this hotel! The owners/staff were wonderful and so warm. We felt personalized attention as there are only 6 rooms or so on the property.The rooms were stunning, everything was new as it has recently opened. We even had sparkling water, candy coated almonds, and little cookies to welcome us. It felt like a luxury villa that we were staying in rather than a hotel. The attention to detail was outstanding and the location ideal, being in the heart of Positano and just minutes from the beach and boardwalk. The breakfast on the terrace was delightful. We were in awe of the surroundings and the decor. Our room had a lovely balcony with lemon trees and we felt like we experienced the true ambiance of the beauty that is Positano.
