We travelled to Sorrento to get married and took our time deciding where to stay, as many of our family and friends were staying with us we wanted to choose a great hotel. We did even better and chose a fantastic hotel. Everything through our stay was perfect. A few highlights include the positioning of the Hotel Mediterraneo, it is in the perfect position to watch those evening sunsets on the balcony. If you get a chance book to have your evening meal on the restaurant balcony to enjoy the great food in a perfect setting. The hotel decor is very nice and modern and all the rooms are thankfully well air-conditioned.
Rooms : We had a Superior room with a sea view (No. 105), as with most rooms in Italy they are not huge but have plenty of space and everything you need (including the whirlpool bath!!). If you need an iron reception are more than happy to send one to you. Rooms are nicely decorated and beds are very comfortable.
Pool Area: The pool is a nice relaxing place with a good sized pool and plenty of beds available. The pool staff were very attentive and good fun (especially during the Italy vs England Euro 2012 game)
Food: the food was excellent, i had read review saying it wan't varied enough, however we were provided with a different 3 or 4 course menu every evening and all dishes were presented superbly and very tasty. The portion sizes are excellent and if you can't find anything on the menu you like the staff will do there best to accommodate.
Special mention should go to Saverio in the restaurant who was excellent, my wife is Coeliac (gluten Free) and my sister-in-law is Dairy free. The Hotel was excellent in accommodating both dietary requirements, including Gluten Free Pasta/spaghetti and adjusting the freshly prepared menu where possible to accommodate. Breakfast was provided for them both as soon as we sat down and they even bought other items especially for there requirements.
All of the Hotel Staff we met were fantastic, especially both the guys on reception. Francesco was great in arranging everything for our wedding reception, which was held at the hotel, He made everything run like clockwork during the evening. This was held in the lovely setting of the orange grove area and the staff made sure we had everything we needed to celebrate our wedding.
Some General tips :
The hotel is approx a 15-20min walk to the centre of Sorrento, thankfully so, as the hotels in the centre would be quite noisy.
Take the hotel Courtesy bus which runs regularly and drops you just around the corner from the main square.
Get a pizza form the pool area!!!! Cooked in the wood fire oven they are amazing!!!
Although there is no beach there is a lift down to a bathing area from within the hotel in the basement and free internet access in this area too (along with the free WiIFI around hotel)
Call in the cafe in the square in front of the hotel for a huge choice of cocktails and a great view of the sunset.
Taxis back from sorrento can be a little expensive around 20 euro.
Finally I would like to thank all of the staff at Hotel Mediterraneo for making our trip an unforgettable experience, you are a credit to the hotel and we look forward to seeing you for our anniversary.
