“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

We stayed here from the 20/5 through to the 30/5 and , wow , what a hotel . From start to finish, it was all about the residants Carmin was the first person we saw and was really pleasent, the staff are really there for you always, Nothing was too much trouble, from breakfast to after dinner drinks brilliant , Gaetano in the bar was fantastic, he certaintly knew his stuff, nothing was too much trouble for him, he was very informative helping us with directions and advice on trips. Also Attanasio up in the pool terrace bar, was just a sweetie, he was so polite and again helpful. Then there was Luigi who looked after the pool towels and umbrellas, he was always there and happy to help. This is a 4* hotel and well worth Al la Carte status , the rooms are fabulous, and everything is so clean, i loved it when i was sitting on our balcony seeing people passing by , stopping to photograph the hotel. there are lemon and orange trees all around. On our last day we had to leave at 4.15am due to trouble on the main road from Sorrento to Naples in order to get our flight, the hotel provided us with a "goody bag" for breakfast on the go, nice touch i thought. I could go on forever about this hotel but i just think you should go and make your own minds up. There are a couple off things i would suggest, 1) that maybe they should have a "Happy Hour" around 6.30 to 7.30 in the evenings to encourage the residents to use the bar more. 2) The evening Menu could be upgraded more to a " Al La Carte" one as i dont think Omlelate is a good dinner choice !!!! We are going back in September and i ahve raved about the Hotel to everyone who will listen to me. just BRILLIANT

Room Tip: Room 141 was lovely.

We travelled to Italy for our 25th wedding anniversary, and couldn't chosen a better hotel to stay at. The hotel is beautiful and really stood out amongst the rest. Every where is modern and stylish with the highest quality furnishings. Staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for you and made us feel very welcome, particularly Gaetano and his colleagues in the bar.
Rooms were spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean and even had electric shutters to keep out all of the street noise.
Ate in Sorrento every night and all food was brilliant as you expect from the Italians, particularly enjoyed Tavern Allegra and very good pizza at Da Gigino.
I would thoroughly recommend the trips to Pompeii, the Amalfi drive, and visiting Capri, we had fabulous days at all of these places and they were very interesting.
Overall don't hesitate in booking this hotel and I would definitely recommend this hotel for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful hotel well up to the online and brochure description. Public rooms stunning and spacious. Bedroom well appointed, spacious and clean. Good assortment of toiletries etc. Staff in particular deserve praise. Everyone we dealt with was very friendly, courteous and efficient. The hotel gardens were well looked after and were very beautiful surrounded by orange and lemon trees, roses and a huge variety of well tended trees and plants.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to everyone looking for a superior hotel.

The Grand Hotel la Favorita is a beautiful hotel right in the centre of Sorrento. The reception is welcoming and the staff could not do enough for my son and I. We were travelling for a family occasion and were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived.

The rooms are lovely and very clean. The air conditioning was on often as the street below can get quite noisy into the evening, but once the doors to the balcony are closed, you cannot hear anything.

The roof terrace has the most fantastic views of the sea and hills. You can lie on one of the many loungers around the pool or sit at one of the tables in the bar area and watch the boats. Don't get me wrong, this is a big space, so you do not feel you are sitting on top of anyone!

I would recommend this hotel to everyone and look forward to returning again next year.

Choosing a hotel when organising a group holiday can be difficult, I did not need to worry, as soon as we arrived our whole party of 28 people were delighted. The staff could not have been more helpful throughout, the breakfast was varied catering for all requirements and the evening meal that was organised for our party was 1st class in every respect. Everywhere from the reception area to the gardens, from the bar area to the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. We did not have a single complaint during our stay, in fact in our opinion as exceptionally well travelled people, this hotel should be rated as a five star hotel, not a four star. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return in the near future.

This is a hotel where members of staff will always exceed your expectations no matter what level you set them. Friendly welcomes from every member of staff, look for Gaetano and Guiseppe in the Bar - nothing is too much trouble for them. Roberto will greet you with the friendliest of smiles at any time of day. Professional throughout and the best hotel in the world. Paul and Karen.

When walking into the hotel it certainly has the 'wow' factor, the roof top pool area was so beautiful especially in the evening to watch the sun set over Sorrento! Our room was lovely very spacious, clean and comfortable, our favourite room was the stunning bar area filled with big white sofas, fab lights and the excellent service from Gaetano, who certainly knew all there was about drinks and how to look after you! All in all the hotel has everything, from the rooms, the surroundings and the service! I would reccommend this to anyone!
