Situated hi above Sorrento this hotel is a real find for anybody with a Car and GPS. Parking is a problem but the hotel staff will park and fetch the vehicle for you, so plan a 20 minute escape route ahead of time. The breath-taking view and the surroundings make it all worth while. The family suite we had was fine with two small ensuite bathrooms a lovely queen size bed and expansive balcony openning to a wonderful vista of the bay of Sorrento and Naples and Vesuvius in the distance. The other room had a bunk so be prepared for a squabble over who get the bottom bunk. The rooms are small with not much space for large suitcases, but the views make up for it.
If you aren't a confident driver in Italy it may be a bit daunting going up the winding roads, but then driving the Ámalfi coast was my dream. Doing it at night even more fun!, but not for the faint hearted.
The service at the hotel was efficient and business like. This might seem a trifle stiff and unfriendly, however we always found the hosts provided whatever we needed. The food in the hotel restaurant was always up to standard which was convenient given the hotel is way out of town. The View from the restaurant windows captivating on a clear summers evening.
The swimming pool is not heated, so be prepared for a brisk dip to set your teeth chattering, but so refreshing after the heat . Unfortunaltely the view is often spoilt by the smoke of the numberous smal fires the landholders light ot burn off garden rubbish.
IF you can find accommodation in Positano, Amalfi, Ravello then chose that rather than Sorrento. The township has become spoit with traffic and it's next to impossible to escape it. IF you cannot then this is a fine alternative. Beware of the Bus service, it runs, but is frequently overcrowded and you must be careful to spot which number bus you get on to return, as many of the routes pass thru the same location, but on a circular trip. You might find yourself taking the trip the Loonnnnggggg way around.
