10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
buca di bacco was the best!!!
"We could not have been happier with the Buca di Bacco Hotel. If you plan to spend your days at the beach it is by far the best choice. The bottom of the hill is where the action is and the convenience of being able to run back to your hotel room from the beach is helpful. If you are up the hill you may actually need to catch a bus and walk the rest of the way down. In the evening you will enjoy going up the hill to shop and dine. The hotel was very clean and beautifully decorated. Be sure to get in writing a terrace (not just a balcony,which is really only a large window). Our room was lovely with antiques, a chandelier and french doors opening to a terrace with an incredible view. The bath was a good size with a marble sink and beautiful italian tiles. The breakfast was delicious (as much as you could want). After considering many other hotels, we were so thankful that we chose the Buca. The location is the best. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. Food and service were excellent. Would definitely stay there again. We look forward to it!!"

Our second visit
"We are just back from our second visit to Buca di Bacco. A wonderful trip where the same staff gave as a warm welcome. Francesco is a superb manager. The room we had was comfortable and very clean. The hotel very is well situated with beautiful views across the bay where you can watch the day start with boats coming and going. The breakfast are delicious; Plenty of fresh fruit and juice on offer, pastries and cakes to keep you going and hams and cheeses to try not to mention cereals and cooked english if you want! Above all, the enjoyment of sitting out on the terrace over breakfast isa real treat. Eating out in Positano can be a lottery - we made a couple of bad choices. I can recommend one new find we made if you want to try local food and wine. Da Vincenzo in viale Pasitea (the road you come down as you enter Positano) - the family who run it are delightful and love talking about the food and wine they serve, we came across a nice mix of Italians and holiday makers there which I always think is a good sign. Talking of food, I'Incanto restaurant on the beach is fantastic - salads and fish to die for! The staff there too are charming. One we did not enjoy and found too expensive was Covo dei Sarceni - it is on the beach front near the boating booths. The staff were rather rude and unhelpful, but the food good."

"Really pleased with this hotel. The staff where friendly and the position of the hotel is perfect. Rooms really clean and spacious. Be sure to ask for a room with a view, or you might get stuck with a balcony facing a wall. Positano is a must for anyone travelling to Italy!"

"We stayed 2 nights in early November 2005, and generally agree with the other reviews about this wonderful hotel. As well as the excellent breakfast, we also highly recommend lunch or dinner in the hotel restaurant. However, the hotel is not easy to find so make sure you get good directions. Take minimal luggage and be prepared for lots of walking uphill. The walk around to the next beach towards Sorrento is a must."

This place is heaven
"My wife and I just spent seven nights at the Buca Di Bacco and we had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly, especially Francesco the manager and Patrick, a waiter in the Hotel. We were in Room # 46 which was one of the smaller rooms but adequate size wise. Like all rooms, we had a balcony that overlooked the Mediterranean Sea and we sat out every night and just gazed at the water and the lights. The hotel is ideally located near the beach and plenty of fabulous restaurants. One that we liked especially was the Terrazzo on the beach, The Covo Saracini was also very good. For less expensive restaurants we would recommend Il Guarcini which is a little walk off the beach on a road which juts out over the water.There are so many great places to eat- we never had a bad meal in a week. Positano is ideally located as a jumping off point to other Amalfi Coast towns like Ravello and Amalfi, Vietri Sur Mare and Sorrento, not to mention being relatively close to the Scavi (ruins) of Pompei. I hope we get the chance to return. The hotel and the area exceeded even our expectations."

Can't get any better
"Just came back from Positano. We liked Buca di Bacco hotel very much. We were there with a group of friends so we had a chance to see 5 different rooms. Each was unique. Those with terraces were better but they also a bit more expensive. We really felt we could not ask for more!!! Close enough to the beach, just few steps, fantastic view, very helpful staff, nice breakfast, very good restaurants. And that fantastic endless sea...all around you"

fabulous - best location
"great location - you would not want to be anywhere else. The staff are so friendly and yes very helpful. We had a larege room with a huge deck with table and chairs- great for early evening. Positano isn't the easiest place to get to so make sure you are there for at least 3 days. The Buca is so much better than what you see on the web site it truely was a delight. We would love to go back. One word of warning - do not rely on the ferry sailing from Sorento to Positano - it never sailed in the 3 days we were there - we ended up going by taxi from Positano to Sorento."

A memorable stay!
"We had stayed in Buca di Bacco for 3 nights and was given one of the most lovely rooms, just one floor above the reception,(think it was room 12) with direct views of the beach. The room was very clean, with air-condtion and a good sized bathroom. We also had a balcony where there was 2 chairs and a table for us to sit to enjoy the gorgeous view. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets all smelt fresh and clean. Breakfast was included and they had a nice spread of the regular eggs, sausages, bacon, cereal, fruits etc.. Its location is very ideal, and just in the heart of almost everything. The rooms are not cheap, but given the fact that it has great views, location and quality of the room, we will definetly be back if we visit Positano again!"
