Absolutely everything about Il San Pietro is first class. The only negative is that you never want to leave, and you can't help but drop your bottom lip when making that last trip up the elevator. We stayed for 4 nights to end our honeymoon around Italy, and couldn't have asked

It is the most beautiful and most romantic hotel ever. It floats over the Mediterranean Sea. Sitting on the tiled deck takes you away to a fantastic dream! I have to go there one more time before I die.

Thank you so much, 507rhondap. Staying outside the crowded town centre can be the highlight of a stay in Positano. In addition, we offer a 24/7 shuttle to the town and back (journey takes few minutes) so guests can choose where to stay at any time.
