My wife and I arrived in Sorrento later than expected due to traffic in the area after our drive from Tuscany. We were greeted by staff who rushed us to our room during check in, explained that their restaurant was "closed for the night" and then took us to our room which was in the far building, about 1/4 mile from the main one.
You better have a car if you stay here, especially if you are in the far building and since the hotel itself, as others have said, is far down off the main road. We later learned, after asking, that the AC only works if you shut all your windows and that they in fact no longer have a restaurant at the hotel. Again, the staff who we talked to did not seem overly anxious to help us out.
The room itself was good, and the bed was very comfortable. The area was very peaceful and scenic set among the lemon and olive trees. We were able to relax in the evening as the sunset while we enjoyed a bottle of wine. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the spot.
Overall, we would not recommend staying here unless you have a car for your entire stay (we dropped ours off the day before we left). The shuttle service which has also already been discussed, does NOT work as the hotel keeps stating. We were told that the shuttle will not go unless there are reservations for it the night before, that they really only take people in at 9 and 11, and bring people back at 1 and 3. Again, the staff seems indifferent and slightly put off when helping their guests. However, if you don't need their assistance and have a car, then you should be fine.
