Nice place bad location

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Roomy, beautiful pool and yard.
Cons: Just wish we had had a realistic picture of the distance to attractions. That is no one's fault but our own.
Location: Cabo, bus ride to St Maria beach for snorkeling, long bus ride to San Jose-but worth it.
Positano Hotel is a charming hotel, with a very nice owner. Rooms were large, had amenities and were comfortable.The grounds are lovely and would make a nice setting for a reception or party. However, it is located right on the freeway-and the noise is constant. It also if too far from any attractions to get to quickly. It requires either a bus ride-which is pretty easy, but costs every time or at least a 30-40 minute walk (to get to Cabo attractions or beach). We spent a great deal of time walking and really wished we had rented a car. If you are getting a package deal that only costs a few more dollars a day for a car-go for it. One little tip-there is a charming Mercado a block or so down the road that has two ladies that will cook for you to order at a very reasonable price. We had them make us a torta and they wrapped it up so we could go to the beach for the day -it only cost 40 pesos, a great deal and the ladies are very sweet. You can pick up water and other snacks there or walk to Walmart which is 1+ mile away.

the positano is a great hotel

Posted Mar 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
it is great if you want a place away from the main hustle and bustle of cabo. it is about a 10 min bus ride to the dock and down town or 15 minute walk right on the main highway,if you keep your front door closed you do not hear the traffic. It has a great courtyard. The only draw back in my eyes is it had no restrauant or bar, there is a great little taco stand about a block away though, they were very good hihgly recomend you try them if you stay here.

The Positano - good value

Posted Jan 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
Although the hotel is situated on a busy road, which made the room a little noisy, the outdoor area at the back away from the road was quiet and peaceful. The place is small, which is nice, and a little quirky. The owner and the young man who ran the place were friendly, helpful, and had character. The place was good value for Cabo.

You will love the tranquility, beautiful sunsets!

Posted Jan 9, 2012
Pros: Loved the friendliness and Vito's cooking! The sunsets from the balcony were stunning.
Cons: There is a highway at the rear - so some traffic noise (you quickly get used to this) However this also means that you have a fantastic bus service!
Location: On the edge of town which was perfect for us!
This hotel is a perfect oasis of tranquility, just a 20 minute walk from the main drag it is perfectly located for those that want peace away from the bustle and hawkers in Cabo! Hotel is extremely clean and comfortable, Vito the owner is very proud of the gardens and maintains them daily with obvious pleasure. Jonathan helps with everything and cannot do enough to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible. Vito cooked for us on several occasions and it was lovely to have a home cooked meal. The facilities in the room (cooker/utensils/microwave) were great especially for those times that we only wanted a simple snack, although there are places to eat nearby (and very good & cheap too) We used the buses to get around, very cheap, frequent and from the hotel door, .....no need to use taxis (expensive for such a short distance) I would especially recommend this hotel for couples who like my husband and I really don't like being harassed constantly to buy stuff we don't want! here you can relax and just enjoy! Loved it and cannot wait to go back again. Vito has a special birthday 6/3/2012 so go and celebrate with him. Thanks to both Vito and Jonathan for an amazing holiday.

Don't stay here!

Posted Jan 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located right next to a very busy highway and a go cart track. The noise is constant and makes sleeping and sometimes even just conversing impossible.

Great getaway

Everything about this property is perfect, but it is directly on the main highway and having a car is an absolute must.

Loved Vito and his hotel

Posted Oct 6, 2011
Vito the owner was to nice he really cared about how we were doing being that it was our first trip to Cabo. Vito is Italian so if you speak a little Spanish you should do just fine with him. The hotel was off the main road but was kind of tricky to get to if you are driving a rental car. Once you get used to the way they drive there you should have no problems. The Pasitano is a nice quiet hotel off the beaten path. It is relatively quiet but in the morning you can hear the traffic going past the front, that just means it`s time to get up. The first morning we were there Vito cooked breakfast about 10am. He his a very nice guy who love his pool area which by the way is very nice. The place is small, it has only eight rooms and we were the only ones there at the time(off season). If you are looking for a quiet cozy place this place is for you, not much on catering like the big Hotels but nice all the same.
