Travel+Leisure readers ranked the best hotels around the globe for sea-breeze bliss—whether they sit on powdery white sand, rocky bluffs, or bustling waterfronts.

No. 19: Il San Pietro di Positano, Positano

2 of 21

This Amalfi Coast hotel has the most direct beach access of all of the Italian winners on our list: an elevator takes you through the cliffs down to the hotel’s sandy private beach. Readers loved the hotel for that kind of VIP-style access (and possibly because it has attracted plenty of actual movie-star VIPs over the years), but they also gave it high points for its overall features, like the private sunbathing patio and a sea-view tennis court tucked into the cliffside. The private ambience also helped the hotel win the bronze medal among European hotels for romance.
