I have to admit that I loved sitting on the huge terrace with a view to the sea, drinking good coffee from the hotel. The terrace is fabulous: postcard view, beautiful breeze, spacious area. The pool is quite large with pretty gardens surrounding it. The town of Vico Equense is halfway between Pompeii and Sorrento. We rented a car and was happy to find out that the hotel did not charge for parking. The driving along the coast is not for sissies, but it can be fun, too. The hotel is in the middle of the town and near restaurants and the main piazza. The train station is nearby and acts as a subway to Sorrento or Pompeii. The hotel itself has seen better days: the walls need painting, the carpets need to be replaced, and the paintings on the walls of our room looked like they were taken from a student dorm. But that view from the balcony made it for it all. The breakfast was okay. We had dinner in the dining room on our first night and I found it disappointing compared to fabulous meals I had had elsewhere on the trip for the same amount of money. The reception staff were very helpful and kind, as were the waiters in the hotel restaurant. When we first went to our room, there was a lot of mold around the bathtub, which was off-putting. I mentioned it to the front desk and it was cleaned by the next day.
