“Beautiful views, but.........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2006

I have just come back from villa lubrense, I stayed there for 3 nights, the views are very beautiful, I had a sea view room with a balcony. The rooms are cleaned every day. Its lovely and quiet, the pool side is great, along with the surroundings of the hotel. Absolutely ideal if you want a quiet few days, with your own vehicle.

A car is required or knowledge of Italian to get around by bus. There is not much any where in the distance around. there nearest shop is too far to walk.

There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room which wouldnt matter so much if there were facilities in the hotel to get tea and coffee, or even soft drinks but there wasnt anywhere.

The staff didnt pay any attention to guests once checked in unless you went to enquire to them about anything.

There was breakfast available, which consisted of coffee/tea a bread roll and some butter and jam. no continental buffet or choice. There was no other available untill Dinner which was limited on the menu and we found the waiter had no idea what was on the menu either. The restaurant was lifeless and no atmosphere.

The pool side bar/snack area was not open when it had stated on the hotel details it would be open in May.

We walked to a nearby hotel which was a few minutes along the road for breakfast and for dinner, they were very welcoming, warm, and the meals were fabulous, the restaurant always had customers. the service was excellent.As we used this hotel it made our stay perfect.

Hi, I have just come back from a short stay in Villa Lubrense which I believe is a short way away from Massa Lubrense. My friend and I did not manage to walk into town, partly due to not being given great directions and also the roads had no pavements, not ideal for two girls to walk along being bibbed at by men of all ages on scooters!!

Taxi's are very expensive at 25-30 Euros for a very, very short ride into town and do not seem justifiable. Buses are available at a very reasonable 1 Euro but the busstops are not always easy to find!

Our hotel was so so pretty and in a fantastic setting with amazing scenery looking out at the Bay of Naples. Maybe it was due to being early season but the hotel is not near anything much at all and if you want to stay at the hotel during the day you'd have a struggle to have some lunch or find something to drink.

The hotel is probably fine if you have your own transport but not ideal if you want to be near the action. They would benefit from running courtesey buses into Sorrento and maybe the staff learning a little more English. I sound like a lazy English person not attempting Italian but if they are going to advertise on popular UK holiday websites they might find it easier to speak with their clients.

The staff were very friendly and with a little more attention to their guests this could be a fabulous place to stay!
