Lovely, contemporary boutique hotel about 10 mins on local train from Sorrento. We went early in the season so it was pretty quiet and the pool wasn't yet open (although we knew this in advance). Staff could not do enough for us. Michelin-starred restaurant was superb. In April'10 they were almost finished building their spa area which will no doubt be of the same high standard as the rest of the hotel. Views from the rooms or indeed most places in the hotel were straight out to sea so the hotel was a quiet, peaceful place to unwind.
Only downside was location: if you don't have a car, it's on the outskirts of the town about 15 mins walk from the train station along a busy road with occasional sections of pavement - we tried it only once and definitely wouldn't do it after dark. The hotel kindly offers a free transfer to and from the station and issues a timetable of pickup times so time your arrival back to the station from Sorrento, etc, carefully to coincide. Since it was early in the season, we were very lucky to just be able to call the hotel whenever we were at the station and they sent someone to pick us up straight away. I suspect this wouldn't be possible when the hotel is full.
