Cocumella is a very nicely decorated hotel with an amazing view.

Every single staff member we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. The front desk lady who checked us in went above and beyond to make our stay more comfortable.

Our room was roomy and very nicely decorated.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Cocumella for our honeymoon - what a great decision! This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel itself is very nice as expected, but the gardens and exterior are just to die for. Those pictures you see on the website? It really looks like that!

We were upgraded to a junior suite for free upon checking in, and there was a lovely "congratulations" card in our room that had been signed by the hotel manager and staff. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and the slippers super soft and warm. The bathrobe and towels weren't all that soft ... but I find that's often the case with hotels who outsource their laundry.

The breakfast is far better than any "continental" breakfast I've ever had - they served us 5 courses! (And all this included in the room rate!) You could order off the menu, but why bother when they give you croissants, an antipasto and cheese platter, a tray of pastries, bread and marmelade, the omelette of the day (made with whatever vegetables they have on hand from their organic garden), fresh OJ, and a gourmet coffee menu (cappuccino, expresso, latte, etc.). There was also a buffet of yogurts, cereals, and fruits. Breakfast is served on a gorgeous terrace overlooking the gardens.

The hotel manager (I think he may be the owner) is a lovely man who greets all the guests at breakfast and dinner, asking about their stay so far and offering suggestions for places to visit. He exchanged a few pleasantries with us every time we entered / exited the hotel, and we felt like we were friends by the end of our stay.

We had dinner at the hotel one night, and it was fantastic. Prices are pretty reasonable for an upscale restaurant - we had the tasting menu for 60 euro each. The food was wonderful, and each dish had a uniquely "Sorrento" flair, e.g. our risotto was flavored with lemons. The tasting menu had TONS of food - we were definitely full by the end!

You should note that the hotel is a solid 10-15 minute walk away from the heart of Sorrento. Taxis are exorbitant - 15 euro for a 2-minute ride. However, we rather enjoyed the walk - after stuffing ourselves with pasta at every meal, we needed the exercise!

After reading some reviews on this hotel, I was really quite worried about this 3 day 2 night trip but there was no need to worry. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we could not complain about anything. We were upgraded to a deluxe room. The staff were amongst the most courteous I have ever met and the breakfast was quite beautiful. Myself and my husband spent our 20th wedding anniversary here and we hope to return again next year for our 21st! Not the cheapest short break but worth every single penny.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September for a wedding. The wedding reception was perfect. The location is stunning, the pool and sunbathing area were lovely, our room was gorgeous with Molton Brown products, complimentary fruit and chocolates. The staff couldn't be more helpful to us! Fabulous stay!

stayed at Cocumella Grand Hotel for the second time and I was not disappointed. Hotel is in a perfect shape, may renovations were done since my last stay in 2011, Had dinner in their gourmet restaurant Coku with a breath taking view on the bay.
The real plus in this hotel is definitely the staff, front desk and concierge very professional and nice and Manager Stephen is always caring about hos guests, a real gem.

Will be back in 2013

Room Tip: room 14 overlooking the street with a medevial feeling, large and comfortable

we've just spent a carefree and casual 4 days at this lovely clifftop hotel. the breakfasts which we ate on the open air terrace were substantial with heaps of pastries and cakes to tempt us. Coffee was slighty variable in strength, on one morning, it was a little weak for my taste. we ate in the restaurant only once and it was fine, although there was not one starter that i fancied. the bread and olive oil was a fabulous substiture however and the wine was lovely. our room, a junior suite to which we were upgraded - a nice surprise - was cool and comfortable with good quality bedding and lots of character. the bathroom although spotless was a little small and dated, but provided everything one would need.what we loved most though were were
a) the fabulous gardens. just enchanting really and a lovely wide terrace with sweeping views of the bay
b) the frequently empty large swimming pool with constantly attended bar, hmmm 4pm prosecco anyone?
c) the lovely staff

grazie mille to all there. we really did chill out.

Having finished a food show in the UK my wife left for Gatwick at 1.30am we arrived at the hotel in our hire car at 11.30 to be warmly welcomed by Stephen the hotels GM. At 1.00pm we were enjoying a fabulous Spaghetti Vongole on the beautiful Terrace by the pool. We have never relaxed so quickly!

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful hotel taking a taxi inthe evenings into Sorrento (15 to 20 euros) and travelled to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast in our own hire car. The concierge recommended some great restaurants.

Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The gardens beautiful and the service from all staff excellent. We would certainly stay again.
