This was our second visit to Sorrento the first time having stayed in the town. We loved Marina Grande last year and decided to stay here. The hotel was very good. I normally like apartments due to the fact we enjoy having a fridge but there is a fridge in each hotel room so we were happy. We thought it rather strange we had to pay a deposit for a key to the fridge which was empty to allow for our own drinks but we read earlier reviews saying there used to be a charge for the fridge which we would not have found acceptable but thankfully the hotel has changed their policy and now only request a deposit rather than a payment.
Car parking was charged at 12 euros a day which we found fairly expensive and when this was taken into account we felt the rate we paid was not as good value as we thought previously.
We did hear complaints from others that their check out time was very early - 10.30 am. This did not affect us as we had to leave the hotel earlier than this but it's not ideal to those who have a later flight. I realise they have to prepare the rooms for the arrival of other guests but so does every other hotel and I have never heard of such an early check out time.
We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Each room has a hairdryer but they are very slow and inefficient so when I asked to borrow a hairdryer one was delivered to my room the next day - very much appreciated! We also enjoyed breakfast each morning, lovely coffee and bakery goods. The hotel is spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the location which has some of the best restaurants in Sorrento just round the corner.
