from the moment we arrived at the majestic palace the staff where courteous and efficient. dinner had been kept for us as we didn't arrive till past ten and check in took minutes.
the hotel is full of beautiful objects and paintings and has an 'old world' feeling about it. it is clearly very well run as everything works so well; the staff are efficient, the rooms are clean, and front desk never flustered. if the rooms where given an overhaul this could be a five star hotel. and can you please put full length mirrors in the rooms!
we where on half board, which included a 4 course evening meal. although i wouldn't say the food was bad, it wasn't great, just good enough to keep having it as it was included. although the staff more than made up for it and the breakfasts where very good but take marmite!
We had planned to explore at night but the bar area was lovely and the bar so well run, not to mention they had great cocktails, that we only ventured out one night all week. But i didn’t feel that i had missed out.
we travelled with Thompson’s, i don't usually do packages but it was painless and the transfer was just over an hour by coach. the traffic in Sorrento can be terrible and can make a short journey take hours, no-ones fault but it is something to be aware of. the train station is about a 5-10 min walk and trains run twice an hour and can take you into Sorrento in a few mins or all the way to Naples. the local bus is also twice an hour and is a few mins into Sorrento, otherwise you have a half hour walk. i wouldn't recommend the Thompson’s tours, they are hugely overpriced and not worth the effort when for a few euros you can go by yourself.
but all in all this was a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and i would go back and probalby take the kids next time!
