Travel is full of its glamorous and not-so-glamorous moments, but for those who love it, it’s always worth it in the end. One thing that can make a trip run smoothly is selecting the right place to stay. For some this is a daunting task, but for others this is part of the fun 🙂 I find myself religiously reading TripAdvisor reviews before every vacation. Of course the “perfect place” is different for every type of traveler, however I wanted to share some tips. Here are a few things I find myself looking at to narrow down options: 1) Cleanliness – This one is a given! 2) Location – In Europe, especially, I like to look for places in the city center so that we can reach most places by walking. 3) Authenticity – It’s fun to stay somewhere that feels true to the local culture. 4) Price – It’s important to keep your travel budget in mind, but also consider that accommodation prices vary a lot by region. Today I’m sharing a look at our stay with Buca di Bacco, which proved to be an amazing hotel experience!
^ All of the rooms at Buca di Bacco are uniquely decorated. I loved the domed ceilings, traditional tile floors, and coral theme in ours. We stayed in the deluxe room with a private terrace, which quickly became our favorite part of the room!
^ How amazing is this rainfall shower with the ocean view window?! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more dreamy bathroom.
^ Breakfasts at Buca di Bacco were one of the best parts of staying there. It’s included for every guest and in the morning you’re free to eat in the restaurant or take a tray to your room. They have every breakfast food imaginable along with desserts, fresh orange juice, and espresso drinks.
^ Every corner is full of beautiful details. We loved this handrail!
^ Another great thing about Buca di Bacco is its proximity to everything. It’s located right at the bottom of the hill next to the beach, docks, church and so many restaurants. Anyone who has been here knows how awful all of those winding roads can be to walk up and down!
For our honeymoon we wanted to stay somewhere really special, and I think we made the right decision by staying at Buca di Bacco. This hotel not only made our stay pleasant, but it actually added to the experience. On top of the location, views, and amenities, the staff were among some of the friendliest people I have encountered. I hope that anyone planning to visit Positano will consider staying here!! We booked directly through the hotel, but you can also find rooms on travel sites via TripAdvisor. If you missed it, be sure to check out my first Positano post here.
