Positano Hotel - Palazzo Murat or Buca di Bacco

We are about to book our stay in Positano, and options are fairly limited. We are in between Buca di Bacco vs Palazzo Murat (new wing).

Buca di Bacco's "superior" room, with a sea view is more expensive than Murat. Murat is about $115 less per night, but it has only a partial sea view. However, Murat does have a pool. Then again Buca is just steps from the beach.

There is a possibility of booking a "classic" room at Buca, which would still have a sea view. But I am waiting to hear back from them regarding certain specifications on the room category (i,e. shower vs bath availability, terrace lounge chairs, etc.) If we are able to book this room, the price difference between it and Murat is negligible.

Can anyone give their recommendation between the two hotels? We are really torn!

For the same reasons I stated in your other post, I would choose Buca over Murat. Buca is in a great location and there are plenty of beach options, including smaller beaches if you don't want the action of Spiaggia Grande.

Thank you so much! Your advice is really helping as we are completely torn! So just to clarify, your #1 choice out of Poseidon, Buca, and Murat would be Buca, followed by Palazzo Murat as #2, and Poseidon in last at #3?
