Historical Traveller Reviews of San Pietro Hotel
Need a Management Shake-upfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is run by Virginia and her sons. We found her to be very unpleasant. She would pass right by you with no acknowlegement or "Good Morning" whatsoever. A funny way to treat guests paying 600 Euros a night!
The hotel is beautiful though and located in an incomparable setting. The service, management, restaurant, etc. don't measure up. The daily special in the Restaurant was the same every day. We asked for just a grilled fresh fish which was offered by our waiter when we sat down but had all been sold when we went to order. When you check-in, expect to be upsold into a better and more expensive room. This is not proper hotel practice- you should be given the room you booked and change it if it does not suit.
After we had checked out, we remembered that the hotel still had not returned our passports. When we went back we were told that we must have left them there- our fault obviously! Expect some irritations if you stay here!

Food Poisoning!from A TripAdvisor Member
The food and service were nothing special at all. However, the real problem was that there was no shop in the hotel where you could buy drinks or food...and since the only "cheap" restaurants were closed by evening time, you really were stuck with nothing but the minibar if you got really thirsty. Additionally, the trip into town was a pain in the rear. A 15 minute shuttle ride every time you wanted to go somewhere! But wait! There's more! I started to feel sick at about our 4th day there. I got a fever, stomach pains, etc. Eventually, I became too ill to even go out for dinner on our last night. When we returned to the states, my doctor sent me straight to the emergency room where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection from food poisoning! Yes, I blame it on Il San Pietro!

Honeymoon Haven!!from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are not stunning but are of a good standard and waking up to a lovely breakfast on your balcony, overlooking the most magnificent panarama with the sun shining is most definitely the best way to start your day and provides that feel good factor.
The hotel is not cheap but this is justified by the exceptional service best illustrated by Pasquale, the pool attendant, who couldn't do enough for his guests and always with a smile on his face.
We will definitely intend to go back to Positano's finest hotel!!
Scam artists!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
If it had not been for our printed email that we had with us, I am sure that the rude staff would have insisted on us paying for the special room rate. Not only were we made unconfortable by the staffs rather rude welcome, but were inconvenienced by having to change rooms the following morning.
It was due to this treatment that we kept dinners and lunches to a minimum at the hotel and spent most of our time in Positano. The complimentary breakfast was terrible, and eggs unbearable.
Upon checkout, we overheard another couple checking in being told the same exact thing we were, that a special room had been reserved. This is obviously a SCAM that the hotel is running. The couple was very upset. BE WARNED: If you do book this hotel, have a printed email confirmation on hand, and be prepared to change rooms, when they claim only the "special rooms" are available.
This is not the luxury hotel it claims to be, but a scam! I recommend Le Serenuse nearby, or one of the many other beautiful hotels located within Positano.

Top Local Tips for Positano
clubs There is really only 2 things to do as far as nightlife. Music on the Rocks is a club on the beach. It has a resident DJ and alot of dancing. Next 2 is a more relaxed atmosphere heading up the road out of Positano. Next 2 has a bar and you can order food. Relax on the couched inside or sit outside , its up to you. Next 2 is more for the older crowd who just wants to sit bak and relax while sipping on a drink and music on the rocks is for the partier. Next 2 is usually closed on Mondays until the season picks up. Music on the rocks doesnt open until 12 am all nights of the week.
where to eat keep away from the restaurants on the beach - they are very touristy with fair food- look for small family run restaurants
STAIRS!!! Positano climbs a cliff wall up to the highway....although many areas of the slope are just inclines, there are inevitably steps if you get down towards the beach. If you have mobility issues, be aware! Il San Pietro was perfection but as it turned out probably the only practical choice for someone with "stairs" issues...it has only a few shallow steps to the lobby and there are floors accessible by elevator. The private beach is reasched by elevator.
