I went to the hotel on a school trip. Me and my friend had booked a two bed room and was very disappointed when we found out it had no opening window and not a working air conditioning, my friend has asthma and this didn't help it, the room smelt like mold and the bathroom was tacky and small with...

My boyfriend and I were there a year ago with no reservations and they quickly accommodated us to a lovely room on the top floor facing the sea. It is worth paying the little extra for the sea view so you can have the feel of the coast right at your room, and as a bonus you can see the... More

I stayed at the Faro hotel with an EF tour group. I was in a double room that did not have a view, but the kids Quad room had a belcony and a great view. Finding our room was interesting, with the back staircases. The room was clean and quiet. We had a great night's sleep. The shower had a... More

I lucked out and got the last room of the hotel for the one night I was in Sorrento. I arrived on a boat from Amalfi and was departing the next morning to Ischia so the location across from the boat docks was most important to me. I was given a great room at an unexpectedly reasonable rate that included... More

This hotel was absolutely lovely. I stayed here on a school trip and we were treated with such kindness. The staff helped everyone with their bags and our rooms were very comfortable. I was unfortunate to get a room with a view of a brick wall but the majority of rooms have a beautiful view of the water. Bathrooms were... More

I stayed here with a school group in April 2014. It's in a great location (as long as you like walking although there is a bus to the town). Based in a great location down at the marina, where you can get a boat to the Isle of Capri, in Sorrento. My room overlooked the sea with views to Vesuvius.... More

We have recently returned from a four night stay at Il Faro. Having stayed with students at a number of other hotels in the Sorrento area, I can confidently say that Il Faro is the best. The student rooms, although quite small, were clean and well appointed, and the staff rooms were very comfortable. We were very impressed to be... More
