An excellent hotel in a stunning location - amazing view of the bay of Naples/Vesuvius from the terrace area. Generally the hotel rooms were perfectly adequate with very comfortable beds and efficient air conditioning. The buffet breakfast was excellent with a good choice of both hot and cold food, fruit, pastries, fresh coffee etc.
The only negatives were the lack of sunbeds - almost impossible to get one unless you paid for it and although the shuttle bus was an excellent service, there should have been more buses put on in the height of the season. You could walk fairly easily into town (20 minutes all downhill) but definitely a must to get the bus back. Unfortunately there was one at 9.30pm and then not another one until 11.30pm which could get quite crowded and often difficult to get on! One night this caused some arguments when people were seen to be pushing in and then other people had to wait for a second bus which didn't go down well! However overall a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this hotel.
