We stayed at the President for our honeymoon. We were there for about 5 days - basically doing day trips around the area each day. We booked the hotel and an ocean view superior room based upon the photos we saw on their website. When we got to the hotel, we were given a room that looked nothing like the website - it was ultra modern, smaller, with the bed in the center of the room and not much room around it. Plus the bathroom was tiny. We asked to be moved to another room, which they did, however that room was just below the hotel restaurant - which they neglected to tell us before they moved us. It shouldn't have been a problem except that the floors of the entire hotel are tile and the restaurant opens at 7am. We heard everything and it was awful. We moved again (yes a 3rd time) to a lovely room but once again the tile everywhere makes the sound proofing non-existent. There are some good aspects though - the pool area is lovely and the morning breakfast is very nice. You dine overlooking the ocean with a beautiful view of Sorrento. The dinner restaurant is good - but very pricey. So is the food at the pool - and that's not anything special either. The hotel itself is situated on top of the mountain and although it's all right to walk down - it's awful to walk up. There is a hotel shuttle but we found having a car to be worthwhile. This is also not a kid friendly hotel - we didn't see one there the entire time we were there. It seemed to cater more towards older couples and that's who was mostly there. When we return to Sorrento we will not be making a return to the president.
