Average time to visit
The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is in spring or late summer, when temperatures are pleasant and humidity levels are low. In July and August the climate is hot and humid, while the area is busy with tourists. Hotels in the Amalfi Coast tend to close for the winter, starting in October until they reopen in late March or April.
To start planning your vacation to Le Sirenuse
Located at the center of the village of Positano, Le Sirenuse is situated beautifully above the sea creating gorgeous vistas. It is an ideal spot for luxury, peace and silence. Le Sirenuse is justifiably known as the place to stay in Positano.
Le Sirenuse has been owned by the Sersale family since it opened in 1951. They still live and entertain in the hotel meaning it retains the original family-run feel that makes Southern Italy so popular.
John Steinbeck wrote of Positano in an article in 1953 "It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. The houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it...The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water laps gently on a beach of small pebbles."
With descriptions such as this it is unsurprising that Hotel Le Sirenuse is considered one of the most romantic and beautiful hotels in the Amalfi Coast. The guest rooms, with their elevated height above the sea, have breathtaking views of the bay of Positano. The candlelight atmosphere of La Sponda Restaurant and the elegance of the champagne and oyster bar provide memorable wining and dining experiences.
A stay at Le Sirenuse is really a very special treat, it is such a unique hotel with outstanding views that will remain with you forever.
Almost all of the 58 rooms, suites and junior suites look out over the bay of Positano. Most have a private terrace or balcony and all are decorated in a beautifully traditional Mediterranean style with the white-washed walls, vaulted ceilings and hand-made tiles on the floors that has made the Amalfi Coast accommodation famous.

Le Sirenuse is in the heart of Positano with wonderful views over the bay. Sit back on the terraces and watch boats come and go or wander from the hotel and explore the local shops and bars. We can arrange a wonderful local wine tasting experience for you while you are here or take a boat trip along the coast or to Capri. The hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant La Sponda canot be missed, featuring locally-grown vegetables and traditionally inspired dishes your tastebuds will love, and with 400 candles lighting the restaurant at night you will remember your visit here for all the right reasons. Rooms at Le Sirenuse are delightful with whitewashed walls, hand-made tiled floors and a feeling of Italian charm all around the hotel. Breakfast overlooking the bay with the morning sun warming the air as the town slowly wakes up was a particularly favorite moment.

I loved the regal Italian style of Le Sirenuse. Not at all stuffy, but brilliantly classic. The food in the terrace restaurant is delicious and the sommeliers excellent too.
