Capo La Gala has a lovely setting and is built into the rocks. We spent a week in the hotel and it's a good location for touring the Amalfi coast, visiting Pompei, Herculaneum, Vesuvius and Naples but you definitely need a car. There is no beach, only ladders going directly into the sea. The water in the swimming pool was very cold.
The rooms are nicely decorated but not sound proof and we were awakened a couple of times by Italian guests coming home in the middle of the night talking loudly. We had a superior room and can only agree with some of the other comments that the terrace is very disappointing as you are only separated from your neighbours by a semi-transparent screen and the terrace is very small with no privacy.
The restaurant is excellent but we didn't want to eat gourmet food every night and there is no alternative in the hotel. The hotel runs a shuttle to the town of Vico Equense but it is not too attractive so one has to go to Sorrento.
The staff were very freindly and efficient and Michele the barman was absolutely amazing. He makes wonderful cocktails and all his suggestions were really delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for him even when the hotel was really busy.
