With beautiful sea views, the cliffside Hotel Marincanto scores plenty of points for ambiance. Rooms and suites have king beds and balconies, many with sea-facing views. Suites also have whirlpool hot tubs, but overall room decor is bland. On-site features include a restaurant serving an expansive (and free) buffet breakfast, as well as a small infinity pool with ocean views. There's a beach area as well, but it's only accessible via a long flight of stairs and it's technically not private.

Oyster Hotel Review
This romantic cliffside property is popular with couples.
The cliffside Hotel Marincanto is popular with vacationing couples thanks to its gorgeous, romantic location on a cliff on the Amalfi Coast. The grounds are spread out over several terraced layers and include a spacious patio with tile floors and lounge chairs for sunbathing. Interiors are equally sumptuous, with a combination of white walls, off-white furniture, brick-colored floors, and blue accents -- as well as plenty of flowers and plants throughout.
Walking distance from the center of picturesque Positano
The Hotel Marincanto is located a short walk from the center of Positano, a beautiful, charming, and picturesque village on the Amalfi Coast that has been a resort since Roman times. The town is full of restaurants serving local and Mediterranean fare (predominantly seafood), as well as bars, bakeries, and artisinal craft shops selling linens and ceramics. It's within walking distance of local beaches and guests can reach the beaches of La Porta, Arienzo, and San Pietro Laureano by boat. Sorrento is a 30-minute drive away and Naples takes just under an hour and a half to reach.
White rooms and suites with blue accents, all with balconies or patios and some with whirlpool tubs
The Hotel Marincanto offers four categories of rooms: Standard, Superior, Junior Suite, and Suite. All rooms come with king beds (extra beds can be arranged), air-conditioning, minibars, safes, and satellite cable -- as well as either a balcony or patio. Superiors have either a soaking tub or a jet shower, and suites also have separate living areas and whirlpool hot tubs. The predominant color in rooms and suites is a stark white offset by off-white furnishing and an interspersed smattering of blue tiles in rooms and bathrooms. Decor is a bit bland.
Infinity pool, spa, beach with lounge chairs, and gorgeous restaurant with sea views
A steep flight of stairs leads down to a small sandy beach with swimmer-friendly waters and pairs of blue and white striped lounge chairs with matching parasols. For those who'd rather not make the long descent, a cliffside infinity pool looks out over the sea. There's also a small spa with a turkish bath and a gym; massages can also be arranged either in the gym or in guest rooms. The hotel's on-site restaurant, Al Marincanto, serves quintessentially Amalfian dishes on a terrace full of vines and bougainvillea that looks out on the sea. There's also a free daily breakfast buffet featuring cakes and other typically Italian morning treats. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.
