There is no doubt the location of the hotel is superb and views from it are breathtaking. Close enough to the centre of town, yet far enough away to be undisturbed by excessive noise.
Our hints & tips...
Rooms: absolutely get a full or partial sea view - it's well worth the extra money
Eating: we stayed half board. breakfasts pretty average, evening meals really well presented, varied and good quality. Wine & drinks matching UK restauarant prices. If you want extra to eat, try the little bar across the road - very welcoming with good snacks and prices.
Service: OK. Pleasant enough, nothing spectacular, but they're all polite, professional and good english speakers
Highlight: the weekly al fresco candle-lit dining event in the sunset from across the Bay of Naples is beautifully presented and a magical experience not to be missed
Mobility: having seen the difficulties experienced by wheelchair / pushchair users getting around on the pavements outside of the hotel and the different levels within it, wouldn't have thought it was particularly wheels friendly
Out and about: Sorrento itself, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, Amalfi coast are all covered by other reviewers, but just remember that if you go August time ( and the books don't always prepare you for it) try to pace your visits as it is hot, crowded and tiring but overall well worth it. Oh and don't forget the Italians don't do queues!!
Overall: a good traditional 4 star hotel that trades on its location as its way of setting itself apart from the competition
