The Spa Resort’s trump card is its staff and access to the Pompeii ruins some 10-15 minutes walk away. Walking is good as local taxis are outrageously priced and prefer not to operate by the meter. . The hotel itself is glitzy in a Costa del Costa manner. Unfortunately the marble corridors echo and the walls are thin. Being out-of-season meant we were only treated to a diatribe of Italy’s shortcomings by the Americans next door on one occasion. In high season – earplugs. The room had a view of Vesuvius and caught the evening sun – very welcome after a day of site hiking. Breakfast offered everything from cake to hard boiled egg but again this flavoured sugar drink where fruit juice might be expected: there is a del Monte plant on the road to Naples. Food and service in the dining room were fine. When tired on arrival and when sheet lightning lit up the mountains for two hours on end it was good to eat in the hotel. Wi-fi requires a password delivered by text for 24hr access. When explained that each text was costing me £5 in roaming charges a permanent password was issued (or at least valid for the remaining 5 nights). The staff were excellent with such glitches – once a problem was clarified they acted immediately. Wear and tear beginning to show on some room fittings. Our shower was supposedly equipped with facilites for radio, coloured lights and a variety of jets from all angles: need I say only the standard overhead shower head actually worked : who needs coloured lights ? The bidet was very useful for soaking “ruined” feet. There are small pools and showers on the rooftop – dry in May when we visited – possibly a lovely spot from which to admire Vesuvius erupting some other day. No coffee maker in the room but a very handy fridge/mini bar. Location, location,location: staff, staff, staff
