Just came back from a wonderful 11 days in Sorrento at the hotel Gran Paradiso with my wife.
This is an adults only hotel with a great pool area set on a steep hill with panoramic views of the bay of Naples and mount Vesuvius. There is a mini bus service to the town centre every hour, which takes about 10 minutes.
The staff are friendly once you get to know them, but not too in your face. Special mention should be made of the waiting staff in the dining room, who do everything possible to win the affection of their guests. I witnessed much singing, joking, kissing of hands and even some dancing with the guests which all added up to a relaxed and jovial mood. Also food was pretty good and was served in the evening, with buffet breakfast.
The whole hotel has been refurbished quite recently to a reasonable although not great standard and the rooms are clean with modern bathrooms. The only real negative is the lack of a room thermostat, so the room would be either very cold or hot, depending on whether the a/c was on or off.
Pool was nice but the water could be a little cleaner and the tiles around the pool were not cleaned on a regular basis during our stay.
Overall this is a good hotel and we had an enjoyable stay. Would recommend.
