I stayed here from September 4th until September 10th. The breakfast was great- overlooking the water with views of Vesuvius. Stunning way to start your day. Its included in yoir reaervation. Huge buffet. There are two hotels here- La Residenza and Parco Dei Principi with the latter being the more upscale. I stayed at La Residenza which I felt was excellent with all the amenities of staying next door at a much better price.
The staff were like family and I was sad to leave them, Elvira, Maddalena worked during the day and spoke excellent English. The night attendant was Sergio who I became good friends with because of my fusorario (jet lag). He also speaks great English and is very professional as well as being a nice guy.
I cannot say anything bad about this hotel. The only thing I can think of is that it's about a 15 minute walk to the center of town. I enjoyed the walk and used it as my excuse to pig out on pizza, pasta and Fish and Chips at the English Inn. (yes I ate fish and chips in Italy and they were the best I've ever had) that being said, if you dont want to walk it, there are taxis ready to take you to the center of town for between 12 and 15 Euros.
All in all I give it 5 stars. Even the lady who cleaned my room was an absolute sweetheart. I left my gold necklace out one day and it was fine. In addition you could eat off the floors.
I will definitely be back there again.
