Reviewed 12 July 2015

The Il San Pietro takes service to a whole new level. Most staff have been at the hotel for 15-25 years and it has a distinct feel of a family-run property. The hotel sticks to its core as a romantic property on the Amalfi, refusing to bend to trendy changes that are overtaking many other properties in the area. Yet,...

Having been fortunate to travel to many of the world's finest hotels, we can say without reservation or qualification that Il San Pietro sets the standard for service, attention to detail and overall positive embrace, on top of which the setting is nothing short of magical. There is nothing missing; there is nothing to add. It is also one of...

Just went for quick getaway, 20th anniversary trip. The views, service and food were all outstanding. This is a very special place and would recommend to anyone who has the means to go. The main dining room was nice for breakfast but a little too formal for my taste for dinner. The seaside restaurant was fabulous - put it this...

I spent 3 nights at this utterly magical spot. I loved going on the daily boat excursion, which included a swim in the ocean,viewing the magnificent coastline with a few comments about what we were seeing, and a snack of nuts, olives, sangria and sparking water. The boat is big enough that all guests who wish to take it can...

I was simply impressed with the hotel as the views are simply breath taking. The amenities and rooms were equally impressing as well as the food. Not only do they have a splendid pool, there is an elevator which takes you down to the beach for an afternoon in the sun. To cap it off, enjoy the restaurant which the...

Thank you for sharing your experience with other readers, James Karl D. Actually the elevator into the rock which reaches the beach in less than 1 minute is one of the highlights of the hotel. Guests love to go down to the beach in seconds.

One of my favorite hotels in the world, Il San Pietro has amazing vistas from all public areas and rooms--it is perched on a cliff side location and it has many levels to access along the cliff. An elevator takes you through the Rock of the cliff down to the gorgeous beaches, cove locations and dining in the sand.

Thank you for sharing this important point of view, Lala4444. At Il San Pietro we think that who chooses a destination like the Amalfi Coast deserves great views from any location (private terraces, rooms, restaurants, spa,…)

Our anniversary at the il San Pietro in Positano, Italy was by far, the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. This hotel is literally built on a rock overhanging the sea!

Il San Pietro continues to be one of the best hotels in Italy, Europe and the World! Of course it benefits from its wonderful location on the spectacular Amalfi coast and looking over Positano but this is due to the foresight the owners had in the first place to build it. We stayed in a large room with a long...
