“Great hotel with an amazing pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stayed here as a part of our honeymoon. The hotel is very nice and the breakfast buffet was great as well. The pool was a very nice amenity. It featured an infinity edge and amazing views that made for great pictures. The location was a bit odd as it was on a busy street but as long as you are careful you will be fine.

My son and his now wife chose to have their wedding reception at this hotel at the end of September and the day could not have been more perfect! And this was in part due to the wonderful service and wedding breakfast provided by the hotel - notably Giuseppe and the restaurant staff.
With drinks and canapés served on the terrace offering amazing views of the bay and Vesuvius, it was a perfect setting before the main meal in the dining room. Here our guests could enjoy the spectacular views again with wall to wall windows - sadly, being on the top table, we missed out somewhat! The food chosen was faultless and beautifully presented with excellent service.
In the lead up to the wedding Giuseppe was quick to answer our emails and questions and once there at the hotel he was happy to accommodate any changes - a huge thank you to him!
Organising such a wedding from afar with no one visiting the venues or tasting the food beforehand, can be a risky affair but any concerns we may have had were to no avail and we could not have been more pleased with our 'destination wedding'. We and our 65 guests had a very memorable day and notably the bride and groom also! Consequently, we would highly recommend the Copodimonte as a wedding venue.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Capodimonte. Excellent Hotel and service. Our flight arrival was slightly delayed, so when we arrived we were impressed to be greeted at Hotel with Porter service and ushered to our meal immediately. VIP service. The meals and views were excellent, Staff were lovely. Only one issue. The young chef could have raised a smile more. Other than that happy with room, views, and hotel. Lovely. Excellent location. Last visited Sorrento 23 years ago. We visited at end of August this year. Would go again.

have just returned from a 3 night stay and found this to be a fantastic and clean hotel in a great location just 5 mins walk from the town. we didn.t get a room with a view but we were not bothered as there are so many wonderful views from this hotel. the restaurant staff were very welcoming, i found the food lovely but if you are a fussy eater you might not like the menu as it is not buffet style but more a la carte. the only downside is the road outside is busy and even though there is a crossing italian drivers rarely stop for you. the coach transfer from naples airport takes about 2 hours when busy and if you are scared of heights you might find the majority of the transfer scary as you are really high up on mountain roads but it is very scenic and for the return journey it was dark but the views were fantastic

The Hotel has some impressive elements; the entrance, the terraces, the bar. Unfortunately this is offset by some other aspects of the Hotel, like the very bright dining room which lacked any atmosphere, the reception staff who are not that engaging and the dining room staff who come across a little abrupt and seemed to be constantly chatting / arguing with each other even across the restaurant and the cost of some of the snacks which were excessive. Despite the fact that the Hotel is located just outside of town it is only a 10 minute walk to the centre and does benefit from some great view of the bay. The room was OK but needed a little attention.

I read other reviews before our holiday so knew what others thought. We did not have a sea view, and had read others say that this was essential. However wondered how long you would spend in a hotel room looking at the view anyway so saved some money and booked a classic room. We loved our room at the back of the Hotel, room 421 was quiet and had a lovely terrace looking at the plant strewn cliff which was lit up at night and looked lovely. The room was very large, and we particularly appreciated having plenty of clothes hangers, and drawers with plenty of space for everything. The decor is pleasant and the rooms very clean, and kept that way with daily servicing including clean bedding. We slept well, though the bed was perhaps a little harder that we are used to.
All of the staff were lovely and so pleasant and obliging. Thank you Antonio for cooking our breakfast eggs each morning with a smile and just as we liked them, your omelets are lovely. On the subject of breakfast, it was wonderful everything that anyone could possibly want, including bucks fizz which had less and less orange juice every morning until on our last day it was just prosciutto!
The reception staff were cheerful and obliging. The location lovely, within an easy stroll from the centre. We are both in our sixties and I have mobility problems but we managed the walk without a problem. But there is a bus stop right outside when we wanted it with the bus every 20 minutes.
unfortunately you have missed your chance this year as the Hotel was shutting down as we left, but will reopen at Easter, We cannot wait to go back!
We travelled from the airport on the airport bus which leaves from right outside the terminal. The cost was 10 euros each and the trip took 1.5 hours. We then got a taxi from the terminus at the train station to the hotel and the trip took 10 minutes and cost 20 euros, so beware!
We went from 23rd -30th October, we had three lovely warm sunny days, followed by three rainy chilly days so will go earlier in the year net time. According to Guiseppe in reception the sun is guaranteed from Early June to September, before and after that the chances are mixed.

Room Tip: We did not pay the extra for a sea view room and did not regret it. The breakfast rooms aand terrace...

I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. The location, high above the town, ensures that there are stunning view of the coast and Vesuvius. The hotel is comfortable and the staff are efficient and helpful. The food was of a very high quality and the breakfasts particularly memorable! The hotel deserves credit for providing such fantastic pool areas. All enjoy sensational views and there are plenty of poolside furniture and towels. We were fortunate in that the weather was beautifully warm during our stay and we took advantage of the excellent facilities.
