This was possibly one of the most romantic hotels to be taken to. I'd recommend it to anyone who may want to spoil their partner!
The hotel and rooms are beautiful. We had an amazing balcony and view of Mt Vesuvius.
The hotel staff are lovely and helpful. You must eat one night in the hotel, its one of the best meals I have ever had and being from Manchester we have some great choices! The chef made me a birthday cake and everyone sang me happy birthday, even the front desk bobbed their heads in to sing along! The wine waitress was lovely and made brilliant choices, mmm to the wine!
There is a free hotel minibus transfer to take you into Vicoequense as the hotel is in a tiny village, with little to do. Pizza a metre is well worth a visit!
The trips organised by the hotel are very expensive, so I wouldn't bother! Its so easy just to jump on the train yourself for a few Euros (quick walk down the road or get the hotel minibus) to Pompei (or Naples etc) and when you arrive you can get into a group for a guided tour for a fraction of the price, our tour was fab. Another must do trip is the Amalfi coast, either do the hotels private trip or simply get a train to Sorrento and then get a public bus right outside the station for a few Euro up the coast, it's great. About 1.5 hours. We experienced a full storm and it was a fabulous trip still! We had lunch in Amalfi, think the place was called Gemma's or similar but again a must visit restaurant, really good!
We had a lovely 4 days in the hotel and area. Main negative was there was no shower even over the bath that we could stand under.
