My husband and I got married at the church in Positano and chose to stay in a Junior Suite (#227) at Hotel Marincanto. We couldn't have had a more perfect stay! I had emailed the hotel several times before we arrived and everyone was quick to answer my questions. We had a beautiful, light and airy junior suite with a daybed, sitting area, desk and terrace. The terrace had two chairs and a table, as well as two lounge chairs, for enjoying the view. Our terrace looked out over the hotel's sun terrace, and to the right was a view of Positano and the beach. Waking up to that sight every morning was amazing! We had a large bathroom with slippers, robes and a sea view from our shower.
The pool was heated, but still a bit brisk in late May. The infinity edge allowed us to enjoy an uninterrupted view of the sea. There's private access to the beach directly below the hotel where you receive a discount. Just be prepared to walk down a lot of stairs to get there (helps you burn off all that pasta you'll be enjoying!). The hotel also has a small fitness room, which we didn't have a chance to check out in person, as well as parking (big plus in Positano if you have a car!).
The breakfast buffet was one of the best we've had in Italy. There was a huge selection of pastries, yogurts, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, eggs and juices daily. We had wonderful weather, so we got to eat outside on the breakfast terrace overlooking the ocean every day. What a view! The hotel is only a 10 minute walk to the main center and beach area of Positano where the majority of the shops and restaurants are located. Because the hotel is a bit higher up the hill, you get great views and a more quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
What really made our stay so incredible, though, was the staff. Every single person we met was so kind, welcoming and helpful--especially Enza! Nothing was too much trouble. They treated us to a bottle of prosecco when we checked in, knowing we were there for our wedding. Every evening when we returned from dinner to collect our room key, whoever was at the reception desk already knew our room number without us having to say a word. They genuinely cared about our stay and made us feel right at home. We truly had a hard time leaving! We can't wait to return one year for an anniversary trip. Positano is stunning, and staying at Hotel Marincanto is the icing on the cake!
