Great hotel! Let me start by saying that we travelled in a party of 6 including a 7 year old and 1 year old twins… The staff – Rafaella, Angela, Luisa, Valentina, made us feel very welcome from the start and really could not do enough for us - which included taking the twins a number of times at dinner time allowing us to eat in peace! The hotel is situated about 10 mins from Vico Equense and a short drive to the train station with a 6 minute train ride to Sorrento. The hotel has a courtesy bus which drops you to the train station and will collect you on return – a simple phone call 30 minutes in advance is typically enough time to arrange the collection. The rooms are modern, clean and are serviced daily. The hotel has stunning views of Vesuvio across the bay of Naples. The terrace is elevated from the road and there are plenty of seats on the terrace, which was relaxing after a day spent by the pool. Lena organised breakfast which was great – Lena also took a baby when she had a moment!! GianLuca served dinner, which again was great (I’d recommend the seafood salad). Pizza is recent addition to the menu, again the pizza was great.
Full marks to all at the Torre Barbara, they could not have made us feel more welcome. If you want to stay in the Sorrento area but not quite in the centre you should not look further that the Torre Barbara.
