I can't compliment the staff enough. They were overly helpful in resolve a couple of problems (rental car & airline) which occurred during our stay.
The view from the bar and restaurant overlooking the Bay of Naple and Mt Ves were outstanding. Breakfast on the terrace was great, good and plentiful food.
Hotel design was very modern, which would explain the "starkness" comments of some guests. Swimming pool is adequate. The top floor is a large terrace which was a nice place to enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of the day. Shuttle is available to the beach and to the Vico Equese city center. Train station to the Circumvensia is only a few hundred yards away and the shuttle did drop us off. Herculeneum was 45 min on the train, Pompei about 25 min. Well worth the cost to considering cost to park at each attraction.
We stayed in room 203 which had a nice terrace and partial view of the bay.
My only negative comments relate to the mattress which literally was as hard as a rock and the shower which was only 16 inches wide on the narrow end by three feet. In the hotel's defense all bed mattresses in Italy seem hard as a rock, but I don't think I'm being overly critical. At the end of the day what any hotel is selling is a good night's sleep.
