Best Hotels in Positano With a View
If you’re dreaming of a Positano getaway and want to stay in the best hotels in Positano with a view that offer Amalfi Coast Charm, incredible sea views, with great proximity to the beach, you’re in the right place.
I’ve sorted the best Hotels in Positano Italy with a view, a mix of luxury hotels, boutique hotels, and villas, that offer incredible breathtaking vistas of the Tyrrhenian sea.
But here are some important tips. I can’t stress enough the importance of booking your accommodation as early as possible, especially if you want to be in the center of town.
I usually book my accommodation in Positano 7-9 months in advance. In fact, to have the most options, a year in advance is advised. I know it sounds a bit extreme, but due to the popularity of Positano and the limited room inventory, you’ll have more options if you book early.
If you’re booking a last-minute trip, you might have to stay in neighboring towns like Praiano or Sorrento.
