We arrived at the hotel just before the restaurant was due to close, because of severe traffic congestion in the town, but the lady at reception called the restaurant manager who continued to serve dinner for us and a number of other guests who were also held up. The hotel was clean and tidy as was our bedroom which was serviced daily. We had a balcony with sea views which gave stunning views of Naples Bay. The bathroom was a bit dated, but not a major drama. The hotel provide a free shuttle service to the town, which was very useful as parking and driving about the town is absolutely manic. If I go bacl to Sorrento I will never hire a car again.
Shame they didn't have a gym or Spa facilities which would have helped deal with the wonder food they provided.
Take the boat to Capri and if you see Mr Salvatori Chioffi on board the ferry offering his tour guide services to take you around the Island, take the offer. You get on board a luxury bus and a full guided tour as well as doing the 'blue grotto' which is stunning.
Take the train to Pompei, 4 euros return, to do the excavations. The train stops opposite the site. Allow plenty of time. There are also tours to mount Vesuvius from there.
