The best of Positano's sea-view mid-range hotels, the Marincanto is built into the slope (actually more of a cliff) that shelters the bay and main beach to the east. In typical Positano fashion, the entrance is via the rooftop car park—from here you get the elevator down three floors to reception (and there are more floors below). All 25 rooms face the sea, and all except the standard doubles have balconies so you can enjoy the view. They're arranged like a vertical slice of theater boxes, with the azure Mediterranean where the stage should be—except these boxes are bright, roomy, and joyously sunny, done out in an uncluttered antique minimalist style. Other attractions include an infinity pool, a private beach, and a delicious breakfast spread served (weather permitting) on a panoramic terrace under the shade of lemon trees. The Marincanto feels really looked after (its sparkling white walls are repainted scrupulously each year during the winter break), and the attention to detail carries through into the courteous, problem-solving concierge service.—Lee Marshall
