We stayed here as a group of 4 as part of a Riviera package.
On arrival we were shown to our top floor rooms which were very small and basic. The beds were not particularly comfortable and the had a headboard that made sitting up to read very uncomfortable. The doors to all the rooms were very loud and echoed up and down the corridor every time someone came or left. The bathroom had possibly the smallest shower cubicle I've ever used! I'm skinny but every time I tried to turn around I managed to knock the tap and turn it off!
Aside from these complaints the rooms were very clean and bedding was changed every day (which seems a little ott).
The food... Where to start? In a word, terrible. Breakfast was the usual cold meats, cheese, boiled egg, toast etc etc. All acceptable apart from the 'orange juice' which was in fact orange squash.
Dinner consisted of 3 choices of set courses. On the first night I tried Pizza expecting some delicious Italian fare. Instead I got a greasy lump of dough with some unappetising cheese and tomato purree on top. Disgusting. Others on our party had veal and said it was OK. But everything that I saw just looked disgusting. And it was delivered by the interesting (bond villain) but grumpy waiters. In fact the waiters were grumpy all week until of course the last night as they warmed up to tip day.
The whole dining experience here was like school dinners.
Luckily for us the resturaunt next door more than made up for the terrible food here. Verdemare is a culinary sanctuary luckily only 1 minute from the hotel.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel. It's just a little too far out of Sorrento with a dangerous unpaved road to walk down for 5 minutes of the 15 minute journey.
