“Italian Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We booked this hotel as a midway stop between Naples & Sorrento, mainly based on Tripadvisor reviews. From the moment we arrived we were amazed, we were met at the door by the manager and welcomed to the hotel. Even in Oct we found the hotel fab, the pool was still enjoyable and we still got to spend time around the lovely gardens. Everything about the hotel was of a high standard, interior space, lots of garden seating, rooms, decor, and the food! The hotel is excellent at dealing with any gluten free guests.

The hotel shuttle is very reliable and pleasant and we used it between Pompeii and Sorrento on a few occasions.

We ate in the 4th floor restaurant one night and the meal and surrounding were great, very professional waiting staff made it really enjoyable.

Do not hesitate to book here!

Room Tip: We actually stayed in two sea view rooms, both were fine and at opposite ends of the hotel. Both ve...

Lovely hotel, fantastic staff who couldn't do enough for us. lovely clean room with a great view.
you will need a car and if hiring it from the airport take your sat nav.
The hotel food was excellent and although we had planned to eat out we ended up eating in most nights.

I booked the motel using reviews on Trip Advisor and to say I was not disappointed is an understatement. What a beautiful motel in an even more beautiful setting. Staff were perfect in every way with Antonia and Maria looking after all of our food and wine needs. Francesco on the front counter is a gentleman and made my wife blush when he kissed her hand.

Meals were lovely and breakfast superb. Could not ask for better value for money.

My wife wants to live here - at the motel she loved it that much. She is now planning our trip here next year to renew our wedding vows.

This hotel is a gem and the staff are most helpful and friendly. English is spoken well enough by most staff if your Italian is not good. While the local town is a magnet for street rubbish it is central for many popular tourist destinations. Trains are cheap and easy to use albeit very crowded to some destinations in the mornings. This is not a cheap hotel in which to wine and dine but sensible use of eating out during trips will help balance the budget. Would we go back? Sure in fact we wish we were there right now!

Dear Jimbox59,

We are so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Grand Hotel La Medusa.
The location of the hotel is truly unique, as we are situated right in the middle of Sorrento Coast but we are located on many acres of lush gardens. It really sets the stage of the ultimate urban retreat. We are glad you appreciate our very special location and the ease with which you were able to visit the area's major attractions.

We hope to welcome you,back to the hotel in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Fabulous hotel set in beautifully established grounds, we were very impressed. The pool and the gardens are lovely, the rooms spotlessly clean and the bed was really comfortable. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, a big thank you to the lovely Francesco, Yolanda, Marco, Maria, Antonio, Hermione, Mauricio and Vincente, all lovely people. This a first rate venue and we would certainly stay there again as it made our wedding anniversary very special......Robert and Nina

Room Tip: Worth upgrading to sea view/balcone

When we were driving to the hotel, the area was horribly run down, it's like that In that area. But when we arrived we stepped into an oasis! A beautiful, well kept building with great gardens and a lovey outdoor pool, with a bar! Staff rushed to take our bags and we were warmly greeted by the manager. Inside the decor was posh rustic Italian design. It was beautiful, everything was clean and the breakfast buffet was amazing! A truly amazing place to stay!! Only complaint, not that many posh restaurants around the hotel area. Although good pizzerias are common (see Pizzeria do Bougenville) Totally recommend it!

I have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at the Le Medusa, this Hotel is a bit of an oasis of excellence as we found the town to be a big disappointment. The Hotel, accommodation, pool area and staff where all excellent. The restaurant was a bit pricey for our budget. No restaurants in walking distance and only one or two in town that we could find. Luckily we had a car and could get around the area. In fact we would suggest a car if you can be brave enough to drive on the roads as a bit scary at times (we would also suggest a Sat Nav as we would still be lost). Good train links up and down the coast but again a good walk from the hotel, plus there was a train strike on while we were away.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for posting your positive review about us.
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the accommodation and services in our Hotel as well as the helpfulness of our team members.

We are sorry if Castellammare di Stabia did not entirely meet your expectations, but our Guests can still enjoy the vicinity to the Sorrento Coast or the others main Region attractions and a quiet and relaxing atmosphere in a typical residential area.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again!!!!
