We had room no. 217. This had an amazing view of Vesuvius and Naples over the Mediterranean. The room was spotless, huge bathroom and a balcony with table and chairs. We enjoyed a buffet dinner on the terrace which was delicious. In fact, this terrace with its majestic views is a great spot any time of the day to have drinks etc.
Sorrento centre is a short easy walk from the hotel.
We were lucky to be there when the ocean temp was still good for swimming and the hotels private lift (yes, lift drilled into the rock) takes you down to their serviced sun deck with pontoon . Might add that the lift takes 39seconds and is rather small (deep breath for claustrophics) but reliable.
Breakfasts were relaxed, comfortable and offered variety as expected of a buffet with options for freshly cooked eggs on request.
Provided a wonderful italian experience.
