Covo dei Saraceni 5 Star Hotels Positano

Positano Dreaming...

Three reasons to book here:

  2. A dreamy infinity pool
  3. The restaurant's excellent traditional cuisine

Covo dei Saraceni - Positano

Go to the top

There are few hotels on the Amalfi Coast that better represent the essence of this magical stretch of seaside - its bright colors, resort atmosphere, flower scented breeze, and easy elegance - than the Covo dei Saraceni, a five star hotel in Positano with suites and terraces overlooking the Mediterranean, sumptuous traditional dishes served in the restaurant, and scenic swimming pools.

The Colors of Positano

Stepping into the rooms and suites of the Covo dei Saraceni is like entering an elegant Mediterranean home. The interiors are furnished with care in the unique Amalfi Coast style, including lively majolica tiles from Vietri in the bathrooms, but with the maximum of luxury and comfort. Each suite has its own private pool on the outdoor terrace. It's like a dream come true!

Two swimming pools, one of which an infinity pool looking over the sea, beach, and colorful houses of Positano. Both are surrounded by comfortable loungers and sun beds, and have heated water in the cooler months. What could be better?

The Best of Amalfi Cuisine

A vacation on the Amalfi Coast isn't complete without a generous sampling of the famed local cuisine. For this reason, Covo dei Saraceni takes it upon themselves to provide guests a veritable gastronomic paradise.
The Covo dei Saraceni restaurant has a jaw-dropping view, but even that isn't enough to distract from the parade of dishes coming out of their gourmet kitchen. Made with the best ingredients from the Amalfi Coast and presented with care, accompanied by a bottle of wine from their large cellar. The hotel also boasts a poolside cafe for a light lunch or dinner al fresco, or La Brasserie on the beach for a quick bite of Positano's best pizza in between dips in the sea.

Ordinarily, I am not a frequenter of 5 star hotels... But, I was looking for a hotel that was centrally located in Positano, with a balcony and sea views. While I am a walker, my Mother is not—and... more »
