My wife and I spent a week at this hotel in July. As mentioned on many pages, I cannot fault the service, location or food as all were fantastic. We arrived late one evening as our flight was delayed but we were served a very nice cold buffet in the dining room. Breakfasts were varied and plentiful.Staff generally always helpful and happy. We stayed on a half board basis and although this can be restrictive, we were not disappointed with the variation in food served or the quality. Many guests including ourselves were given the opportunity to dine on the balcony outside the dining room.
I would recommend the following: Use the public transport to get to Vesuvius and other places as it is relatively cheap and you see a lot more of the people and way of life.The shop prices vary enormously for the same products so do shop around. Trips are quite expensive, especially to the islands so be prepared to pay around 20 euros each to go to Capri for example (high season).
Hotel pool is quite deep with no gradual slope so be warned. There are two pool ladders for entry and exit though. Also, there is a stepping stone path dividing the childrens pool from the main pool. Each stepping stone is square so if you walk across and slip and your leg falls into the gap(s), you may break your leg or ankle. I have pointed this out to the management. If the steps were round it would be safer.
Another policy the hotel should adopt is NO POOLSIDE LOUNGER RESERVATIONS. Many hotels now enforce this. Have your say if you visit.
We would definitely go again.
