First, Positano is the Amalfi Coast town everyone thinks of when you say “the Amalfi Coast”. As a result, Positano earned this stigma for good reason. For example, it has an expansive beach, lots of activities, cool restaurants, and lots to do. All of these features make it arguably the most popular city on the Amalfi Coast. Here are the best hotels in Positano!

What makes Positano so special?

However, this popularity comes at a price. A B&B could easily cost you $ 300 + a night so it’s up to you. So stay in a popular destination like Positano or Capri where everything is going on or scroll down to Maiori and pay half the price with half the people.

The Le Sirenuse is one of the best hotels in the world because it is located in the most desirable city (Positano), on what is probably the most desirable coastline in the world (the Amalfi Coast) and has a perfect view. Definitely comes with a price tag!

My wife and I stayed here a few years ago with our first daughter. Our room was beautiful and the balcony was big enough to invite friends over for dinner which was served by the hotel! Walk to the beach was manageable and would definitely stay here again!
