We stayed here for 5 nights and had a lovely time. Our room was spacious and comfortable, if fairly basically furnished. However, with sunshine and the beautiful pool we spent little time in the room. The outdoor pool is fantastic. It has stunning views across the bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, and plenty of sunloungers. We were very impressed with how clean everything was at the hotel, including the pool and area around the pool. The pool was clearly very well maintained as there were no bugs or leaves floating on the water or any dirt on the bottom of the pool. The hotel also has some lovely gardens with lemon trees, and spacious lounge and terrace areas to sit with a drink.
As others have mentioned, conferences appear to be big business for this hotel. At the time of our stay, we were told that around 250 of the guests were on a conference. At times it felt a bit like the hotel had been taken over by the company holding the conference, but on the plus side, this meant that the pool was very quiet as they were in meetings all day - no need to get up at 6am to put your towel on sunlounger!
The hotel is about a 10/15 minute walk into town. The hotel is set on a bit of a hill but it was not a difficult walk for us. We found taxis to be very expensive in Sorrento (€20 from the station to the hotel, which we discovered was only about a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk) so we avoided them after the first time.
The only criticism I would make is of the service at breakfast. The selection of food in the breakfast buffet is very good, but we seemed to always have to wait for ages to be asked if we would like tea or coffee and then it took a long time to arrive. There did not seem to be any sort of system by which the waiters kept track of who had just sat down and needed to be looked after. Aside from that, we had a great experience at this hotel.
