Had a great stay here. Friendly staff, beach close by with relaxed beach restaurants, nice sea view, short walk into Positano, nice hotel restaurant, very good value for Money, nice way to stay away from the Positano Center crowds...

I love Amalfi towns like Positano but hate feeling too close to the 24-7 mass tourism machine so Pupetto was perfect. Sleepy hotel, nice staff, great little beach, awesome room from our bed/balcony. Absolutely loved the restaurant and cafe, staff were all very charming. I think if they made the rooms a little nicer and improved the breakfast offering to match lunch/dinner quality, then Pupetto would be absolutely perfect. We will definitely be back!

While looking for a five day, "get away" vacation, my wife and I both agreed on Hotel Pupetto in Positano. Having visted Spaggia Fornillo (where the hotel is situated) six years ago, we knew the location was ideal. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the main beach and crowds of Positano and it was the best 5 days we ever spent doing "nothing"!

Our room (sea view double) was lareger than most rooms we've experienced in Italy. The large French doors opened to a balcony where we shared our afternoon wine and our late nights, listening to the sound of waves, gently breaking on the pebbled beach.

The hotel staff were ALL extremely friendly and could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. .The large bathroom included a full size tub with shower head and hand held nozzle, a bidet, and toliet. The room was equipped with an air conditioner that I used only once during our five nights. The sea breeze and lack of insects meant that we could leave the doors open all night.

Unfortunately, we dined only once at the hotel's restaurant. We saved this for our last night but I would have eaten there more frequently had I known it was so good. It far exceeded our expectations and the sea view setting is one of the best in Positano.

I will definitely return to Hotel Pupetto!

Room Tip: Opt for the sea view room w/ balcony. Rooms closer to the hotel desk will be a bit more quiet. The...

Spent 4 nights in pupetto, this hotel is excellent, great location, very relaxing and great restaurant. The rooms are basic but spotless with great views, more than adequate and very comfortable. The staff were great and we had the best meal of our stay in hotel restaurant, beautiful! Was very glad I chose this hotel rather than one on the hill!

We stayed 5 nights in hotel Pupetto in August, after a friend recommended it.
The location is perfect, right on top of the Fornillo beach in Positano, a lot better than the big beach.

The hotel is not fancy, just very clean and good size rooms with a great terrace overlooking the beach.

The staff was extremely friendly, they helped us booking trips and restaurants and were very handy after Naples airport lost our suitcases.

The rooms are not cheap, but nothing is cheap in the Amalfi coast. We will definitely recommended it and will stay here again once we return to Positano.

We were so impressed by this 3 star hotel as it is so much more! Rooms were bright, spacious and so clean. The balcony and views are to die for. Veronica and all the staff were so welcoming and helpful. Food was great, we ordered take away on our balcony one night which was a memorable experience. Very near the beach and town. Arrived in by boat after travelling from Rome, what better and easier way to travel. I would love to visit again and thoroughly recommend.

This hotel is not fancy or sophisticated. It is not cheap in relation to other resorts elsewhere.

It is however clean, has friendly staff, has a great beach bar and sun lounger areas and also does lovely food.

I am so glad we stayed here rather than somewhere up the hill in Positano proper. The whole area where the hotel is located has a far more relaxed family run italian feel than the other main area which is just great.

Staff were brilliant throughout our stay.

If you are in two minds I say 'book it'.
